TV Review: The Vampire Diaries S3E10
Posted by The Obscured Vixen on January 6, 2012
It’s finally back! I’ve been waiting for so long for this show to come back on the air, and it did not disappoint. Here’s a quick recap…
Bonnie has a continuous dream that she is the abandoned house where she contacted the elder witches. She goes into the basement in her dream and finds four coffins, one with Klaus inside.
When Bonnie wakes up, she goes to the house and does not find any coffins in the basement… but she does find Stefan. He needs Bonnie’s help to hide the coffins, which contain Klaus’ family.
Elena is out for a run when she realized she is being followed. Not knowing who the man is, she continues to run faster to get away from him. Turns out he is Klaus’ latest right hand man since Stefan is MIA.
Jeremy is being a rebellious teen: failing his midterm, losing his job at the Mystic Grill, and getting drunk with Tyler in the middle of the afternoon. His excuse is that his world is turned upside down, and survival is now more important than school or work.
Alaric and Elena try to have a family meal with Jeremy, when Jeremy invites Tyler for dinner. Tyler is loyal to Klaus even though everyone tells him to be careful.
Klaus makes a phone call and tells the person on the other end to go ahead with their plan. We then see Jeremy standing in the middle of the road waiting to get hit by an oncoming car. Klaus’ new man that was stalking Elena is behind the wheel and hits Alaric when he pushes Jeremy out of the way. If he did not have the Gilbert ring on, he would have died.
When Alaric wakes up from being ‘dead,’ he coughs up blood proving he is not healing. Elena calls an ambulance, but Klaus’ stalker guy shows up and compels the paramedics to leave. Jeremy shows up and shoots him in the back with a wooden arrow, then beheads him.
Damon wants to know why Stefan stole the coffins with Klaus’ family. Damon ‘wants in’ on whatever Stefan has planned to bring down Klaus. Stefan confides in Damon with the condition that Elena is left out of the loop. The coffins are in the house in plain sight, however the witches are blocking them from view. Even if Klaus were to enter the house looking for the coffins, he would never see them.
Elena calls Klaus to make a deal: she hands over Rebecca to spare Jeremy’s life.
However, once Klaus gets Rebecca back to their house, he stabs her again to keep her out of commission. He does not want her coming after him, now that Rebecca knows Klaus killed their mother.
Elena fears for Jeremy’s life, and convinces Damon to compel Jeremy to get out of town and never look back. Elena thanks him for everything that he’s done, and they have ‘a moment.’
Damon admits that he wants her, and feels guilty because she’s his brothers girlfriend. Damon then says if he’s going to feel guilty, he needs something to feel guilty about. He then kisses Elena.
And she kisses him back.
Even after the show took a break, I still don’t like Stefan as a bad guy. He just can’t pull it off! However, I am curious to see how Stefan and Bonnie continue to work together.
I really hope that Jeremy is not gone for too long. I really like where they’ve been taking his character this season, and want to see even more of him. Especially since he’s getting hotter every episode. I mean, what? He’s way too young for me!
And where’s Caroline? Just as she stops getting annoying and starts to develop as a character, she’s not on the show!
Can’t wait to see what happens next week in Mystic Falls.
