Caroline has a really big heart and all she wanted to do was save her mother, but as Stefan said, it was too easy.
I knew Caroline was going to give that patient her blood, which is something she would normal not do. But she honestly believed it would work and it seemed to at first. I was thinking maybe they should monitor him for longer to see what happens. It didn’t take long for the side effects to take hold. I’m not sure if he died or what, but it didn’t look good. What is going to happen to Sheriff Forbes?
Liv is always trying to help her vampire friends and her brother is always pulling her away, leaving Damon or Elena to fend for themselves. This time it was Elena trapped by Kai. And as noble as Jo is, she was no match for Kai and nowhere near ready to use her magic. I don’t know if Alaric and Jeremy had already planned to come in behind Jo and Damon, but it worked. And it was really good that they were so sneaky about it. Both of them could be dead if Kai would have gotten his hands on them.
The best moment in the episode was when Elena said she’s never felt more alive. It wasn’t just what she said, it was the way she was looking at Damon. It goes to show that you can’t just erase true love. Tragedy is bringing them closer together.
Tragedy is also bringing Caroline and Stefan closer. They had a moment at the end where it seemed like they are getting closer to that kiss. He’s really been there for Caroline and who knows what will happen next with Sheriff Forbes. He may have to let Caroline lean on him some more.
So Luke an Liv are out, what’s next? Can they prepare Jo to defeat Kai? He’s super charged at the moment so he’s unbeatable, but he may be unbeatable anyways. It looks like Kai isn’t going away anytime soon.
Enzo is also sticking around and he’s not over his making Stefan suffer mission, but what is his plan? He’s taking Sara Salvatore’s paintings, which is making me really nervous. Make Stefan suffer, but don’t punish Sara, she’s innocent. She has nothing to do with their world. Enzo said revenge takes patience, so we’ll just have to wait and see what he has in store.
From the looks of next week’s preview, Sheriff Forbes doesn’t have long and the tragedy leads Elena back to Ian. Take a look at the preview:
