OK, kids, sorry I wasn't my usual self last week. I tried to be, but let's face it. Last week's less than stellar episode was just too damn confusing. And not in a good way. Thanks to the good TVD tradition of airing a crazy-ass episode after a complete fail, we have so much to talk about tonight. Let's get started!
"If you are really trying to be the good guy, can't you just give us one day? One day without vampires?"
Tonight's episode was chock full of little gems. My favorites were Klaus face when he was trying to bust through Elena's house, and Damon's after Abby denied his drink offer. I hope I can find GIFs someplace...

Basically, the heat is on! Now that Esther has vacated Rebekah's body, Klaus is in the know about all of the shenanigans going on, and he's ready to kick rocks. Of course the Hybrid master isn't about to leave without his precious doppelganger. This doesn't go exactly to plan since there is an immortal vampire vampire hunter with plans of his own. Long story short, Alaric holds Caroline hostage, and lures Elena out of the safety of her home.

While Elena plays negotiator, Stefan, Damon, Bonnie, and Jeremy attempt to fend off Klaus. Once they realize that Elena has snuck away, they make a shaky alliance. Bonnie talks to Jaime (off screen), and gets the Vampire Mummification spell from Abby. Sadly, she had to return to MF in order to give up the deets.
"You're asking me to walk into sudden death?"
Abby says that in order for Bonnie to take Alaric out like she did Pappa Original back in the day, Bonnie will have to stop his heart. To do that she has to balance the scales by stopping a human's as well. Jeremy volunteers because he's wearing his Death Defying ring, and hasn't learned from Alaric's mistakes. They drink Bon Bon's blood so she'll be linked to them, and know when to do the spell.

Things go well until they don't. Klaus saves Caroline, but takes Elena hostage for himself. See, right before Alaric was about to stake Klaus, Elena realized that he didn't kill her because Ester linked his life to Elena's. Once Klaus heard this, he figured he's kill two birds with one stone. Syphon Elena's blood for his hybrid army, kill her, and kill Alaric by default. Smart cookie!
Tyler was there, though, so he tried to rescue her, and got Salvatore back-up. With Ric's help. Once he realized Klaus' plans (and was still trapped at the school by the sun) he formed an alliance with The Boys.
Klaus spent the entire episode trying to get under Stefan, Damon, and Elena's skin. I think he only managed to crawl under Elena's though.
After she was rescued, the gang used Bonnie's spell on Klaus. Dropping Elena back home, she addressed the elephant in the room. She knows she needs to stop stringing them along, but she's afraid to lose either of them.
Since his first plan failed, Alaric decides now is the time to reveal himself, as well as Carol and Liz. Doh!

Now that they're all safe (including Jeremy) the gang decides to celebrate while Stefan and Damon travel to the Atlantic Ocean to dump Klaus. After everyone leaves, Elena drops. Too much blood loss? Witchy woo-woo? I don't know, but something tells me Elena may not be human much longer.
That was my two cents. What did you think about tonight's episode? Excited for the finale? Be sure to sound off in the comments below! Until next time...
