This week’s episode starts off with a quick glimpse of how last weeks ended. (Elena writing in her diary realizing Stefan is definitely not normal and putting all of the pieces together – see last weeks recap.)
Dear Diary, I am not a believer. People are born, they grow old, and then they die. That’s the world we live in. How can I deny what’s right in front of me? Someone who never grows old, never gets hurt. Someone who changes in ways that can’t be explained. Girls bitten, bodies drained of blood…” – Elena
With that diary entry of Elena’s, she decides to confront Stefan no matter how much she doesn’t want to believe. He tries to pull his shit together and get Elena to listen to him in hopes she would accept him as a vampire. Hey, he doesn’t feed on humans… at the moment. The cliffhanger of what happened to Vickie and all of her druggie friends at the cemetery is answered. Damon MAKES a new play thing and is impatiently waiting for Stefan to give up his ring because he really doesn’t like being stuck inside…. hence the new play thing to pass the time with. Elena gets a lesson in Salvatore history 101 which means flashbacks are rampant. And flashbacks mean that we finally get some more details on Katherine. Oh, and the ‘which brother had her first’ question that the brothers can’t seem to agree on is answered but turns out she just might have been the one in charge there. A long-awaited episode that will allow for many more juicy drama filled moments with twists and turns throughout the rest of the series thanks to one sentence – “I am a vampire”. It only gets better from here and prepare to really dislike Katherine…
We finally get a look at the infamous Katherine who still causes the Salvatore brothers to loath each other all these years later.
