It’s funeral time (again) in Mystic Falls! HollywoodLife.com got an early look at the fourth season’s second episode, and it’s too good not to talk about.
If you read my sneak peek of The Vampire Diaries‘ fourth season premiere, you’ll know I loved every minute of it — but the follow-up episode, “Memorial,” manages to outdo it in almost every aspect. There’s heart-stopping action, mind-blowing surprises, and of course, new tension in Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) eternal love triangle with the Salvatores.
OK, here are my 12 mini spoilers from “Memorial”:
1. Following the events of the premiere, Bonnie (Kat Graham) remains a wreck throughout this entire episode.
2. Elena and [Spoiler] commit an unspeakable act — in a church.
3. Matt (Zach Roerig) and Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) bromance grows to adorable new heights.
4. Caroline (Candice Accola) is, yet again, caught doing the walk of shame. That girl…
5. There’s a plethora of cuteness between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena as he prepares her for what’s ahead.
6. Elena also *ahem* bonds with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) under similar circumstances.
7. The gang takes a moment to mourn the dead — many of whom Damon was responsible for.
8. Just when you thought you couldn’t love Tyler (Michael Trevino) any more, he does something that makes you appreciate just how much he’s grown since season one. (Remember? He was, as Alaric would say, such a dick.)
9. There’s one particular Elena scene that will gross you out — unless you have a really sick sense of humor, in which case you might find yourself giggling at it.
10. Two couples get hot and heavy. I’ll say no more.
11. There’s something big happening to Jeremy. I’d elaborate, but I’m not sure I fully understand it myself.
12. Something happens during the episode’s final minute and a half that will induce squeals of girlish delight from fans.
That’s all I can say for now! And trust me, even if it seems like I hinted at a lot, I barely scratched the surface. Drop me a comment with your thoughts and predictions for season four.
