I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of The Vampire Diaries, ‘Stand By Me’.
After much denial, leading to strops, violence and eventually a complete breakdown, Elena realizes that Jeremy is truly dead. Bonnie agrees to help Shane by killing twelve more people to get the proper magic needed to break the veil between this realm and where all supernatural beings go when they die. If this veil is broken successfully, every supernatural being that has died will come back to life. Also, with the veil broken, Silas will no longer be able to die. When Bonnie tells everyone about her plans, they all tell her it’s a terrible idea.
Caroline tries to reach Tyler but is unsuccessful. Matt has a hard time with Jeremy’s death. Rebekah leaves Vaughn to die in a cave after he warns her that no one is safe from Silas (and that no one knows what he looks like), before stumbling across Shane on the island – meaning that it’s Silas messing with Bonnie’s head (he later meets with Bonnie there). Damon makes Elena shut off her humanity because the pain of losing Jeremy is too much for her. After she flips the switch, Elena burns down the Gilbert house as a cover story for Jeremy’s death.
It was a strong episode, that will certainly make the rest of the season interesting. I can’t wait to see how it all unfolds.
Thanks for reading.
