Good episode! Not my favorite (those would be the penultimate and finale of 2, and the finale of 3), but solid and good writing by Julie Plec. Nina Dobrev did an excellent job, so props to her, and Zach Roerig was pretty great too...Matt breaking down in the truck was so sad!
Was Katherine's return a pleasant surprise? A surprise yes, but clearly not pleasant. Though, Miranda, I don't think she just suddenly showed. I think she is the one that broke into Shane's office. I think she has been following the merry band of travelers and lurking around Mystic Falls for a while. And we didn't see what Katherine was wearing in the first place, nor did we get a good look at what injured Elena was wearing at the end. I think knocked Elena out and switched clothes with her.
To which character would you give the cure? Rebekah. All she's ever wanted was a family, an epic love, children. She once said something like...she's lived 1000 years but hasn't had a life. She may be a bit of a double-crosser at the moment, but she deserves it most.
Where did Tyler go? Honestly, I couldn't care less. He comes and goes so often at this point, and I feel like there is some chemistry missing between he and Caroline (that really was once there)... I just want to see Klaus redeem himself to Caroline somehow...
Sadder moment: Tyler leaving, Jeremy dying or Damon turning into a decent person? Tyler leaves all the time. He's losing relevance for me. Damon may be bad-ass (and always will be), but I think that he's always been decent at heart (and, again, always will be). And OBVIOUSLY it was horrendous that Jeremy might be dead! And my theory is that, sadly, he actually is :-(
What was your favorite scene or quote from the episode? I really enjoyed the brotherly exchange in which Damon tells Stefan that he doesn't want Elena to be human. I also enjoy all exchanges between Klaus and Caroline. Tyler who? Plus, Joseph Morgan is just FLAWLESS in his portrayal of the (emotionally raw) villain.
I loved the moments of extremely raw humanity shown by Klaus....Joseph Morgan is flawless in his portrayal of the character...
Finally, Caroline and Tyler hold the least appeal for me but, that said, I'm not sure if he's coming back or really going or what the deal is... I want to see Klaus be redeemed in eyes of Caroline before he makes his exit to New Orleans.
I think that it's possible that she may want the cure so she could stop running from Klaus...even if she has to help him re-build an army of hybrids. Honestly, it's difficult to speculate on the motivation because seeing her was such a shock! I think now that the focus will be on the following: Jeremy's death and the fall-out it causes for Elena, Bonnie (who is likely to freak out), and the rest...plus the consequences of raising Silas...the search for Katherine and the cure...the relationship implications of Damon's words to Elena/Rebekah's betrayal of Stefan/Klaus running Tyler out of town.
I think his death would be a catalyst for Elena to go dark, lose her a large portion of her humanity...pull away from both Damon and Stefan. Were Jeremy to die, she would TRULY have lost every last thread that ties her to her human life. That could lead to an interesting storyline. I am a little unsure of where things are going with Katherine. I guess she must have been following them, lurking around for a while. As for the cure, I am not sure WHAT her motivation could be, but I don't really think she DOES like being a vampire at all. She became immortal out of necessity...
