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...
Though I hate to say it, there is a part of me that believes that Jeremy just might be dead. I know, I know..it's awful but I think Matt Richenthal just might be correct in saying that the ring won't work on a hunter...I don't remember for sure, but it's tickling at my brain that it might be true. My reasons for thinking Jeremy might actually be dead are that he seems to have served much of his purpose on the show (besides more gratuitous shirtless goodness), and I am not sure where his character can go from here. I mean, the writers can probably think of something but....
Give the first half of The Vampire Diaries Season 4 a grade. A-....started as an A+ but the sire bond thing, Stefan's ridiculous need to find this cure, the confusion surrounding Professor Shadypants, the half-contrived sire bond breaking by Hayley...it might be headed someplace convoluted and I tend to find TVD at it's best when it the story lines are somewhat straight forward....
More surprising: April freeing Rebekah, Klaus ripping out the hearts of every hybrid of Jeremy's physique? I couldn't care less about April's story-line and Joseph Morgan played Klaus beautifully in this episode, but HOLY CRAP...Steven McQueen has gotten ridiculously ripped...I mean his ARMS!! You could see veins...I was floored..where has that been hiding?!
Caroline ratting out the red hot Delena sex to Stefan: The right move or none of her beeswax? I don't know. Elena broke up with Stefan beforehand..it's not his business really. Caroline probably thought he deserved to know but what good would it do anyone, really?
Did Damon make the right decision in letting Elena go? The whole thing is so stupid. The witch in New Orleans said feelings have to be present pre-transition to create a sire bond. Tyler said the bonds have nothing to do with feelings. And she's still sired, just being told what to do. They never indicated that you can actually break a sire bond (unless there is a cure and Elena becomes re-humanized) and the feelings are REAL. Why not just go with it rather than them both suffering?
What was your favorite scene from the episode? Klaus kill Mayor Lockwood. Not because I wanted to see her go, but because Joseph Morgan played Klaus so well..so cold, so evil, yet so sad...
