Plus, Elena gives the brothers a deadly ultimatum! Is ‘good’ Elena, as we know her, gone forever?
Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) search for the cure led them straight to Katherine on the March 28 episode of The Vampire Diaries, but neither of them expected to run into Elijah (Daniel Gillies) — and that’s when the real fun began! Ironically, Elena doesn’t do a very good Katherine impression, so Elijah figured out she wasn’t his real girlfriend (!!!) almost immediately.
Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) eventually caught up to TVD‘s version of Thelma and Louise, but not before Elena left to rendezvous with Elijah. The Salvatores forced Katherine to bring them to the cure, but some quick thinking — and a fish tank full of vervain water — allowed Katherine to escape. Taking advantage of the sudden insanity, Rebekah snatched the cure and drank it in one mighty gulp, only to discover… it wasn’t the real cure!
The real cure was chilling with one of Katherine’s “friends,” but when she went to retrieve it, she ended up giving it to Elijah to hold on to. She’s letting him decide how things play out, which is either really romantic… or really stupid. I haven’t decided.
In the heat of the moment, Stefan realized Damon purposely let Rebekah drink the cure in order to keep Elena as a vampire forever. This led to a long overdue heart-to-heart about how “nothing ever changes” in this endless game of brother-versus-brother, and a game-changing revelation from Stefan: When they finally get the cure for Elena, he said he’s planning on leaving her behind him forever!
Speaking of revelations, Elena told the boys to stop trying to change her — and more importantly cure her — or else “there will be consequences.” To prove her point, Elena killed the first waitress she could find, promising a full-on killing spree if they keep getting in her way.
‘Klaroline’ Plays Mind Games
Back in Mystic Falls, Silas was busy playing everyone’s favorite game: Let’s Torture Klaus (Joseph Morgan), which the audience automatically won because we got a solid hour of shirtless Original. But the big surprise came when Caroline (Candice Accola) showed up to help Klaus pull out the White Oak Steak… and discovered there was nothing there! That’s right, it was just another illusion conjured up by Silas.
But Caroline’s help came at a price: She got Klaus to agree to let Tyler (Michael Trevino) return to Mystic Falls without trying to kill him, which she — and every single person viewing from home — was thrilled about.
Since we have three weeks until the next new episode, let’s talk: Who do you think deserves the cure? Did you enjoy Klaus and Caroline’s scenes, or are you happy to be getting Tyler back? And what could be next for crazy-pants Elena? Drop a comment with your best theories!
