Andy's 'Vampire Diaries' Afterthoughts: Elena Fails At Babysitting Rose & Damon Reveals His 'Biggest Secret!'

Posted Thu, January 27, 2011 10:41pm EDT

Elena’s adventures in babysitting took a dark turn on the Jan. 27 episode. Body count: at least seven.

I think we can all agree now that, as one of the few and targeted humans left in the group, Elena (Nina Dobrev) should never be left alone. She had to play babysitter — but really more like hospice nurse — to a wolf-bitten Rose (Lauren Cohan) this week. After a series of dementia-related mishaps, Elena’s patient was loose in town and begging for the only solution to her pain: a stake to the heart.

But Rose’s sad, and incredibly well-acted, descent (oh I just got the title of the episode) into madness and double-death also brought Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) “biggest secret” to light: he misses being human — because he knows that’s what Elena wants him to be, but he just can’t bring himself to embrace those heart-beating feelings. He actually got wasted and confessed his big secret — in almost those exact words — to a complete stranger. And then ate her! (But not before we got an epic Damon/Elena scene.)

But no one was more confused this week than Caroline (Candice Accola), who is now being creeped on hardcore by both ex-boyfriend Matt (Zach Roerig) and ex-human Tyler (Michael Trevino.) She acted all flustered and upset after they both attacked her with their lips this week… but you know she totally enjoyed it.

There was no sign of Bonnie (Katerina Graham) or Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) this week. I’m just going to assume they were off holding hands somewhere. There was very little sign of Stefan (Paul Wesley) too, as he spent most of his time chasing after Isobel — or as I think of her, the crazy stepsister from Not Another Teen Movie.

Final thought: The one thing that really stuck with me throughout the episode was Rose recognizing how badly Elena wants to die. I could see myself pondering this hardcore, but I’d rather know what you think. Like Damon said, I’ve had enough “doom, gloom and personal growth for one night.”

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get all misty-eyed.

But at least Rose is hanging out with Trevor now… and Lexi.
