The race for the cure may have cost one member of the ‘TVD’ gang his (or her) life!
Still bumming around on the island, the Mystic Falls gang was dealt a major blow on the Feb. 14 episode of The Vampire Diaries when they learned there’s only one dose of the cure! Of course, that piece of news paled in comparison to the crushing loss suffered in the episode’s final moments — and the shocking return I didn’t see coming.
Huge, major, game-changing spoilers ahead…
Jeremy Gilbert, Fallen Hunter
Professor Eyebrows (David Alpay) took Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) down a rabbit hole — oh my God, I get the episode title now! — so she could touch Jeremy’s boob again and cast a spell from it. Bonnie “saw” Grams (Jasmine Guy), who convinced her to “feed” Silas so she could be permanently revived, but Jeremy was quick to snap Bonnie out of her delusions. Unfortunately, he chose to do it with his shirt on this time. Bummer.
They eventually stumbled on the cure — and Silas’ frozen body — but soon discovered that the only way to bring him back would be to feed him some blood. Vaughn knocked out Bonnie and almost killed Jeremy, but Elena (Nina Dobrev) swooped in to save the day. Or, at least, we thought it was Elena!
It turned out to be Katherine, who wasted no time reminding us all what an unforgivable bitch she is. After forcing Jeremy onto Silas’ chompers, she left him for dead, which is exactly what happened; Silas snapped Jeremy’s neck, and the episode ended with poor little Gilbert lying lifeless on the floor of the cave. In complete silence.
Is Jeremy really dead?! Is this real life?!
In the promo for next week’s episode, Elena is seen insisting that Jeremy isn’t dead, which makes me think we shouldn’t mourn him quite yet. And even if he is dead, this wouldn’t be the first time. Isn’t his revival the whole reason Grams is where she is anyway?! Magic can fix anything! (Or, at least, that’s what I’m telling myself.)
Caroline & Klaus Play ‘Let’s Make A Deal’
Meanwhile in Mystic Falls, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) worked tirelessly to crack the password on the sword, Da Vinci Code-style — and by “worked tirelessly,” I mean they literally let Klaus (Joseph Morgan) do all the work because neither of them speak a single word of Aramaic. Surprise, Surprise!
For turning Klaus’ hybrids against him — along with a million other sexy transgressions — the original Original decided it was only fair to kill Tyler. Naturally, Caroline tried to convince him otherwise, and she kind of succeeded. Kind of. Klaus agreed to give Tyler a “head start” before killing him, which was actually pretty generous when you consider Klaus’ history of compromises.
So Tyler and Caroline were forced to say goodbye yet again — I’ve lost count of how many times he’s had to skip town at this point — and their farewell just as emotional as it always is. And because Bonnie got KO’d, her spell wore off, finally allowing Klaus to leave his tiny magical prison.
But even amid all the Katherine/Jeremy/Klaus insanity, there was still time for relationship development for Elena, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Not a lot, but definitely enough for a little face-off:
Do you think Jeremy is really dead? Are you glad Katherine’s back in town? And if only one vampire can have the cure, who do you think should take it? Drop me a comment with your thoughts, theories and reactions to this week’s insane ending!
