I’ve just had the pleasure of watching the latest episode of The Vampire Diaries, ‘Because The Night’.
Realizing that Elena needs some time away from Mystic Falls, Damon takes her to New York City, where he lived and partied hard in the 1970s. While being in New York, Damon is looking for Katherine to get the cure. Damon thinks that Elena is oblivious to that fact, but she is actually trying to get to the cure as well. When Rebekah also shows up in New York, she’s impressed with Elena’s secret agenda of getting the cure. Flashbacks reveal Damon’s hedonistic life in the underground club scene and a complicated encounter with Lexi, where Lexi tried to get Damon to flip the switch like she did with Stefan before. Damon also briefs Elena with his experience with Lexi in New York and tries to convince her to flip the switch as well.
Meanwhile Caroline and Stefan try to convince Klaus that it would be in his own best interest to help them track Silas down. They team up and try to figure out Sila’s next move. They find out that the last massacre has to be involved with witches. Silas is still trying to convince Bonnie to do the last massacre. Bonnie is hesitant, but Silas reminds her that when the third massacre is performed, all supernatural creatures that died come back to life. So Bonnie decides to perform the massacre.
Stefan, Klaus and Caroline look for the location and find it. The twelve witches try to save Bonnie from the use of dark magic, but they find out Sila’s has control of her. So they try to kill her with a knife, but Caroline takes the knife of stabs the witch who is connected with eleven other witches. All twelve witches die, completing the massacre and Bonnie faints.
While in New York, Elena tries to attempt to take away a paper, Damon found to track down Katherine. She tries to grab it while seducing him, but Damon catches her by revealing he used that same trick. He confides that when Lexi was sleeping on the roof, he took her daylight ring. The sun comes out and Lexi has no choice, but hides in the shade. So Damon runs away and confesses that he felt guilty after and still does. But while talking, Rebekah breaks his neck and they take the paper and go.
Bonnie wakes up and her memory after the cave is gone, and Stefan has to tell her about Jeremy’s death. Silas bribes Klaus to help him, threatening to kill him with a white-oak stake he stole from Rebekah. Elena and Rebekah steals Damon’s car and search for Katherine. Klaus initially refuses to help Silas as he isn’t scared of him, but when he goes to attack Silas he isn’t fast enough (Silas is much older), and Silas jams it through his back and breaks it off so it sticks in him. He’s missed the heart by an inch, but we end the episode with Klaus is a lot of the pain, and Silas smirking as he walks off.
It was a great episode, bringing back Lexi in flashbacks, showing off Rebekah and Klaus at their most fun, and giving us a demonstration of Silas’ power. I can’t wait for more next week.
Thanks for reading.
