'Vampire Diaries' Recap: Elena Gets Blood-wasted! Should She Become A Vampire?

Plus, relive the mind-blowing April 28 episode, ‘The Last Day,’ with nine pics… and a million emotions.

Even if Elena (Nina Dobrev) does live through the impending sacrifice, there’s no way she’ll ever forgive Damon (Ian Somerhalder) for his betrayal on the April 28 episode of The Vampire Diaries. But her survival is looking bleak, as Klaus (Joseph Morgan) now has the witch, werewolf, vampire and doppelganger he needs to perform the ritual. Read on for my full review of this week’s episode… as long as sudden plot twists don’t make you too dizzy to read.

Let’s begin with this week’s epic showdown between Damon and Stefan (Paul Wesley) — yes there’s a showdown every week, and yes it is always epic — over yet another Elena-related disagreement. This time, Damon wasn’t a fan of Elijah‘s (Daniel Gillies) plan to feed Elena an elixir that would *finger crossed* bring her back to life; so he force-fed her his own blood in order to allow her to come back as a vampire.

Unsurprisingly, Stefan wasn’t too pleased with Damon’s blood-raping, and a brotherly battle ensued… ending with Damon stabbing his emotional little brother with a massive wooden pole. (A beautiful “Delena” moment tarnished by Damon’s ego. I’m not pleased by his actions this week, not one little bit.)

Meanwhile, Klaus lured Tyler (Michael Trevino) back into town — with Jules (Michaela McManus) in tow — just in time for the full moon, then used his witches to kidnap Tyler and Caroline (Candice Accola.) And because he enjoys ruining evil plots, Damon set the teen captives free — with the help of a rifle-touting Matt (Zach Roerig) — and confronted the über vampire at Chez Klaus.

And that’s when literally everything changed…

Klaus revealed he already had Jules in captivity as a back-up werewolf — and for his back-up vampire, he fed Jenna (Sara Canning) his blood and killed her! That’s right, folks, Aunt Jenna went from completely oblivious to full-on vampire in three weeks flat. She totally broke Vicki’s record!

And as a final final twist, Klaus and Katherine discovered that Tyler really did bite Damon! And as we all know, werewolf bites don’t exactly heal (R.I.P., Rose.)


Was this episode BANANAS or what? Not only were there so many good “Delena” moments, but admittedly, there were also a ton of solid scenes for “Stelena” fans to enjoy. I’m also more of an Elena fan than ever after her dramatic speech about never wanting to become a vampire. (Suck it, Bella Swan!)

I can’t even wrap my mind around the insane plot twist of turning Jenna into a vampire. Like… WHAT? I guess they had to do something with her character, but I was completely blown away by it. Once again, Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec have found a new way to re-define “game changer.”
