When Rebekah (Claire Holt) also shows up in New York, she’s impressed with Elena’s secret agenda. Flashbacks reveal Damon’s hedonistic life in the underground club scene and a complicated encounter with Lexi (guest star Arielle Kebbel). Meanwhile, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) try to convince Klaus (Joseph Morgan) that it would be in his own best interest to help them track Silas down, and Bonnie (Kat Graham) struggles to keep her grasp on reality and do the right thing.

Network blurb: DANGEROUS LIAISONS — When Rebekah (Claire Holt) turns down Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) plea to stop Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) and protect Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), Klaus turns to Stefan (Paul Wesley) for help. After an angry confrontation with her father, Mayor Hopkins (guest star Rick Worthy), over his unconventional approach to ending the violence in Mystic Falls, Bonnie (Kat Graham) has a frightening run-in with Kol, followed by an unexpected visitor. Klaus complicates the already tense feelings between Stefan and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) by revealing a bit of Stefan’s personal life, then surprises Damon by asking for personal advice. Elena (Nina Dobrev) tells Stefan about her dangerous plan for Jeremy, leaving Stefan in a difficult spot. When the high school’s 1980s Decade Dance is cancelled by Mayor Hopkins, Stefan finds a charming way to make it up to a disappointed Rebekah.
My recap: I think there are two things that have made this season so watchable and none of them has to do with the fact that Elena is a vampire now. The first thing that has made this season so intriguing is the evolution of Stefan Salvatore. Here is a vampire that has been put through the ringer since the day he was turned. Yet, over the course of four years we’ve seen him really deal with the insanity of dating a teenager. Through the highs and lows we always saw the moral Stefan as the only shining light in a sea of revolving door drama. Now, we see a guy that is at his wits end and all he can do is regress into a person that has to keep everyone at arm’s length, be a bit more brooding, be a bit more unstable and be a bit more dangerous. Happily, that is something that almost everyone likes. Yes, this is all done so he can get his old Elena back, but something is better than nothing.
As the episode started we see that he regrets his night with Rebekah, but that does not stop him from continuing the ruse to keep Rebekah interested. He needs what she has and that is a dagger that can kill an Original. He even goes as far as giving her the high school dance that she has wanted to badly. So, in tribute to John Hughes, Rebekah and Stefan roam around the empty halls of the school. When she realizes that all Stefan wants is the dagger, she hands it over… she is willing to allow her brother to die just so she can be human again. Seeing Rebekah get all misty and seeing Stefan wanting to help her… well… that was just good TV.
That leads me to the second reason why this season is memorable. The infamous “cure.” I consider it the supernatural version of National Treasure, with all of its twists and turns. Elena has it in her head that the only way to get ahead of the game is to have Jeremy kill Kol. Thus eliminating an Original and completing the bloody map on Jeremy. Of course, it becomes a bit more complicated, but they get the job done in true Kevin Williamson fashion. The twist though was Klaus’ reaction to his brother’s death. Yes, this just made our little cure seekers deal with their biggest obstacle on a new level.
The most fun part of the episode happened at the very end. Once Kol was offed, Damon was free to hug his kid, a.k.a. Elena. This is when Stefan walks in and just as Elena was rejoicing that two Originals were killed, Stefan fesses up that he could not do it and that Rebekah is on their side. This is when Damon dropped the bomb that Stefan and Rebekah were hooking up. Elena’s reaction was kind of hilarious. Here is a girl that is obviously still in love with her first love and can’t get why he has moved on with Rebekah and is now both defending and siding with her. This causes a little bit of an issue between the brothers Salvatore and Damon punches Stefan, but I can’t wait to see how everyone will work together, now that Jeremy’s map has completed itself.
Also, kudos to Bonnie for sticking to her guns in order to protect everyone as best as she can. This meant turning on her parents. That’s right, her Mom showed up. In a moment of classic teen defiance, she turned on her parents (who were trying to protect her from herself) and ran out of the house. Just like an after-school special.
Overall, this was a great episode. I think it was a highlight for this season and that is because all the characters that were featured in an episode got to shine.
Synopsis of Into the Wild: MYSTERIOUS ISLAND — Shane (guest star David Alpay) leads an expedition to a desolate island off the coast of Nova Scotia, where he believes the secret of the cure lies hidden. On the trek to the island’s interior, Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) continue their bitter rivalry, Stefan (Paul Wesley) does his best to keep the peace, and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) accuses Shane of leading them into a trap. Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) try to figure out the message of the Hunter’s mark, while Shane reveals more of the legend of Silas and the witch Qetsiyah, along with his own personal history. Back in Mystic Falls, Tyler (Michael Trevino) confronts Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Caroline (Candice Accola) is caught up in the violence that follows. Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Caroline Dries (#413).
From E!: “Bonnie is going to take a different turn and is going to make some choices that are going to affect the rest of the characters. It’s really, really huge,” Kat Graham stated.
Julie Plec stated the following to TVLine regarding the love matches on the upcoming season of The Vampire Diaries:
The Love Triangle of Stefan-Elena-Damon: Elena’s transition into vampdom will effect this love triangle:
“This circumstance, which is pretty horrific, is going to make them all care about each other even more deeply and argue even more intensely and fracture even more greatly and love as deeply as possible.”
Delena shippers do not fret:
“It’s certainly not the end of Delena, as anyone might be afraid,” insists Plec. “In fact, in a way, it’s the beginning of the beginning.” But just because Elena now remembers Damon’s confession of love and that she met him first doesn’t mean she’ll be regretting her decision to stick with Stefan. “I wouldn’t want her to be so fickle,” says the EP. However, the regained knowledge will “imbed itself in her brain a little bit. As she continues to look at herself and her relationship and friendship with Damon, it’s all those new pieces of information that will be important along the way.”
“I definitely think that Klaus is going to unwittingly provide a little bit of mistaken identity hijinks in the first episode back.” Meanwhile, a fresh face who has “a history” with Tyler will arrive. “We’ll start to understand that this is a friend of his, who’s been very important to him in the past,” teases Plec. So should Caroline and Tyler fans be worried? “Any time a hot, new girl comes to town, somebody’s got to be worried about something. But Tyler and Caroline have a really solid bond, a really solid relationship. So it takes somebody really special to get in the way of that.”
As stated in earlier interviews, April shares a history with Jeremy and Elena. She will provide something more than friendship for Jeremy.Regarding the character of April:
“We didn’t bring her in to be a love interest for anybody,” says Plec. “But we’re certainly open to seeing where the chemistry flies.” Meanwhile, Jer and his ex Bonnie “are very bonded to each other. In spite of having found a piece of closure in their relationship, they will continue to be drawn to each other emotionally. Whether it’s romantically, I can’t say.
Seems like it going to be another fun year in Mystic Falls.
Supernatural – Misha Collin, a.k.a. Castiel, will be in a minimum of 8 episodes this season.
The Vampire Diaries – Remember Bonnie’s boyfriend, Jamie, well the writers are still deciding if they will further explore this relationship.
Once Upon a Time – They are casting for a new character named Beaman, a peddler of rare and illegal antiquities who makes his sales in the shadowy corners of Fairy Tale Land taverns. Beaman lives on the wrong side of the law and will have an interesting run-in with Milha, a wife and mother who hits up the bar to add a little excitement to her “humdrum” village life.
1. The choice the Bonnie made, swapping Tyler and Klaus, will come back to bite her in the butt. Why? Well, the witches aren’t necessarily too happy that Bonnie dabbled in the dark side of witchery. As a result, she goes through a pretty rough time in the first episode because when she tries to save her friends again, the witches will be pushing back.
2. With Bonnie having issues with her ancestors and Elena dealing with her vampiric growing pains, these BFFs will be hitting another rough patch. But, as always is the case with these two ladies, they will overcome their issues and once again rely on one another and be Bffs again.
3. Matt will suffers some major survivor’s guilt and as a result, Matt will be Elena’s champion. He may also allow her to feed off of him, but they will only be the best of friends in the upcoming season. He will also have to deal with Rebekah, who is still crushing on him. Unfortunately, if she does not change her striped, he will not pay any attention to her.
4. The Brothers Salvatore deal with Elena the Vampire. They are affected by this change differently and therefore they will be at odds once again. Regarding the love triangle, well because all the characters are changing the relationships continue to evolve.
5. New characters comes to Mystic Falls and one is names Hailey and she will be connected to Tyler and Bonnie will get a new mentor that is brilliant and well-versed in the Supernatural world.
6. Klaus. Joseph Morgan, will be back.
(E!/Kristin dos Santos) Prepare for an epic season. (Shocking, we know.) “Oh gosh, it’s good. It is really good,” Kat Graham gushes of the fourth season. “This is a season where Elena is in transition to become a vampire and then Bonnie is going to start to dabble in some crazy things. We get to see her going into another side maybe fans have yet to see her in. It’s cool.” Anyone else getting Dark Willow vibes and living for it?
