Jeremy gets a much needed reality check, Elena learns how to start over and more, Stefan has a big mouth, Damon and Bonnie learn about Kai, Matt and Stefan both find themselves in WTF moments, and a parental bombshell of epic proportions is dropped…
Let’s start with that bombshell. Dear readers, Sarah (aka the girl Elena drank from and Caroline compelled) is a Salvatore. Her father is Zach Salvatore and her mother was Zach’s girlfriend who was killed by Damon. Yeah, her many times great uncle killed both her mother and father. Does that mean that the Salvatore mansion is now hers? I assume not given the fact that I believe it was given to Matt (if my memory serves), but I could be wrong.
Speaking of Zach turns out that Damon returned to Mystic Falls in 1994 in order to get back in Stefan’s good graces. After Stefan rejected him because Damon fed off of Zach’s girlfriend, Damon killed her. Somehow Sarah survived 3 months premature and spent time in the NICU. Yeah, this is seriously messed up. But that is why Damon and Bonnie are in 1994 Mystic Falls. Not entirely sure how killing Sarah’s mom qualifies as Damon’s worst thing ever though.
But that point is moot because it turns out that Damon and Bonnie are not in Damon’s personal hell. They are in Kai’s. He was a member of a coven who cannot cast magic, but instead can suck it out of any witch he touches and then use it on himself. He killed his family and then the Gemini coven exiled him to this dimension as punishment. So if Damon and Bonnie want to come back, they have to bring Kai with them because only he knows how to get back.
I cannot express how incredibly happy I was that Alaric finally decided to give Jeremy a badly needed 2×4 upside the head. Jeremy is right, he has lost a lot but, as Alaric pointed out, Alaric has lost just as much, if not more. It was good that Jeremy vented his frustration and rage on Alaric and just got it out there, because if he had kept on drinking, it would have ended badly.
I loved the scene with Elena and Stefan in the restaurant. I had heard about the proposal and was seriously curious about it. The whole invented dialogue was absolutely hilarious and appropriately over the top. It’s too bad that Stefan has a big mouth and told Elena about what she had Alaric do. To her credit, she didn’t get mad at anyone but instead went to Alaric to get answers. That was a very good thing for her to do. I don’t know if she’ll get her memories back, but if she doesn’t drama is guaranteed.
Poor Matt. He pretends to know nothing about vampires, only to have Tripp take him to a location where Tripp is holding Enzo prisoner. That is so not a good thing. I so hope that Enzo reins in his mouth and doesn’t give away that he knows Matt. I am really worried about who killed Tripp’s wife. Given the fact that no one knew he was a Fell, I assume that he has been gone for a while, so presumably it isn’t any of our gang. Damon is a definite possibility though. As if he needs more trouble on his plate.
And Stefan’s dead girlfriend? Not so dead after all. Enzo fed her his blood before he killed her and she is back and hungry. Oh boy…
