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

Posted Thu, April 28, 2011 10:31pm EDT

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.)

CLOSING THOUGHTS:

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.”

I think its about time that Elena became a vampire, because then she can face up to the reality that as THE human doppleganger she was always destined to die. Caroline says that being a vampire has made her stronger and a better person, so who better to teach Elena, plus she has always tried to stand by Elena. In a funny way, Damon will also be better equipped to teach Elena about being a vampire because he has been both good and evil. Stefan will probably hunt her down for the rest of eternity, but Elijah might turn out to be a valuable ally. In a way, Elena reminds me of Maddy Ferguson from Twin Peaks, doppelganger cousin of the murder victim Laura Palmer, (whom Katherine reminds me of),caught up in events already set in motion. Maddy is even more clueless than Elena ever was, who at least tries to take steps to protect the ones she loves, while Laura chooses to embrace death rather than be possessed, while Katherine turns into a vampire to avoid being sacrificed.You have to feel sorry for human Katerina, she was simply in love with Klaus, who tricked her. Katherine or rather Katerina Petrova and Laura Palmer are such fascinating characters, that of course Maddy and Elena might seem dull in comparison.The other problem is Elena (and Maddy) are too perfect and nice, they have no anger or hatred or desire for revenge for those who tried to hurt them, saintly but does not come across well in a storyline. Who knows, maybe if Elena is turned, she might face up to what her destiny was supposed to be, to die.

With the Elena becoming a vampire, I don’t think it will happen, because it will be way too soon, and the show will just fizzle out. With the Damon bite, I have mixed thoughts, I don’t think he will die, because there is a huge fan base for Damon, and if they wouldn’t kill Caroline off because of her big fan base, they definitely will not do that to Damon fans. I think there could be a huge cliffhanger with Damon, such as us not knowing whether he will live, because that will keep us waiting for more. I also think there is a cure for a werewolf bite, and that is where Stephen will be sent, to look for a cure. That is just a few of my thoughts, i have many more :P but don’t want to bore you :D BTW I am a Damon fan but I don’t mind Stephen :P xx

“Holy Emotional Episode Batman!” Damon, NOOOOO!!! You didn’t really just.. *hides face in pillow* She will never forgive you! Le Sigh. That was my first moment of horror, although in hindsight I am not surprised he fed Elena his blood. He is on the very edge of desperation. The consequences though…this will haunt you buddy.

The fact that Damon so quickly realizes how bad he screwed up surprised me a little. He is growing people and I know he does unforgivable things, but it’s the why that makes me unable to fully despise him. I don’t think he belongs with Elena (Stefan has proven that he loves her unselfishly) but nore is he simply evil. He breaks my heart with WHY he does these rash, horrible things. Katherine & Stefan have done a number on him in the past & he’s realizing how it’s controlling him (remember Lexi’s words? Yep, she was right)

Cue Tyler’s transformation in the woods where I was screaming “Wolf-bite! Wolf-bite! Run!” Though I thought Caroline or Matt would be the recipient. Not. Damon. Jaw drops on floor, I hyperventilate at thought of Damon dying, Bestie throws water in my face, I calm down slightly. Kudos writers, you got me! What a great storyline, Damon having to deal with his mortality & choices. Serious applause!

My mind immediately jumps to Rose, did she not have to die?! Oh deliciously horrible would that be! Does Damon need to bite Tyler to survive? (remember Jules line of “Bite me” when Damon asked for a cure for Rose?) will it not be fatal since Tyler wasn’t a complete wolf yet? The possibilities are many, I think Stefan will play a part. I’m counting on you younger Salvatore, make sure that damn dog doesn’t kill your bro. Thanks.

Elena wins best actress for her emotional confession! *cue Kleenex* will she really turn?! I’m not ready to give up human Elena yet. Aunt Jenna!!!! NO!!!! Vamp? Dead? Both probable..Boo I love her. Tyler/Caroline/Matt love triangle say what?! Looks promising…let’s hope they all live to fulfill it.

Last but not least, Klaus. YOU BAMF!!! How terrifying are you? Katherine aflame & besting Damon. Scared. Of. You. You also had one of my fave lines to Alaric “thanks for the loaner mate” *accent swoon*

other fave lines Elena to Stefan “Close your eyes…close your eyes” that coupled with Paul Wesley’s tears DESTROYED me emotionally.

Damon to Stefan “I’m surrounded by idiots, I need all the help I can get” yeah Damon I needed that whiskey to get through this episode…just saying.

Most ironic line: Damon to Tyler “don’t make me regret doing this” Ummm…yeahh…that one literally bit you in the arse (arm) No wonder you don’t play nice more often. Well done writers! Well done!

haha i read and loved this entire comment.

i agree with another commenter, who suggested somehow elijah’s elixir will play a part in keeping damon alive. (…even though he did say it wouldn’t work on a vampire.)

is it bad that i wish it had been matt who tyler bit? seriously, now.

If Elena becomes a vampire the show will near its end becais fans will become bored and ratings will drop drastically …… it happens to all great shows when the impossible becomes possibel and it’s no fun to watch anymore…..so lets hope this doesn’t happen because this show is amazing and with all the reality crap that’s outthere right now there is no reason to watch t.v anymore……….

Idk if I’d go so far as to say I wouldn’t watch the show if she became a vampire… but I definitely wouldn’t be a fan of the idea. We need SOME humans!

Just because Damon forced his vampire blood on Elena fans forget she is the one to still choose if she wants to turn. She has to feed right after after awakening as a semi-vamp and if she doesn’t she can still die. Or she can just walk in the sun and die.
Yes what Damon did was wrong, not giving her a choice, BUT she doesn’t have to turn.
After his mistake Damon turned around and helped a lot of Elena’s friends in this episode and now he is bitten.
Well we wil see how that will play out next time.
Elena I think is more hurt and shocked that Damon would do this to HER than angry. She knows who Damon is and his motivations.

Elena doesn’t want to become a vampire because she doesn’t love Stefan enough to make that ‘sacrifice’ to be with him for forever. When she’s truly in love with the right vamp, becoming one won’t be such a sacrifice, but rather something she will want to do because she can’t imagine living without Damon or making him live without her. (Hey, a girl can dream, right?)

from how you said it, i actually understand more of what you’re saying. she says that she is too young to realize what love is and she thinks that even though she says that she loves stefan, she knows that it’s just that “friendship love”. but you are also right, damon literally is willing to sacrifice his life for her and she is for him, so maybe it will work out…? but you know cw is going to be all suspenseful on us and make us wait XD

Elena does loves Stefan but as she said she wants to be a normal teenager… I mean you don’t have to chainge to prove you love someone, ’cause that’s ie to yourself and lie the person you love.. and one day you can also rehret doing it. Her points were clear and good ones… and is her choice and if Stefan respect that why not we. If you love, you love yu don’t have to be proving anything to anyone
