First what you missed is that it is not the ritual that weakens Klaus. The ritual allows Klaus to achieve his goal of breaking the spell. The ritual happens on a full moon, so once he breaks the curse he will transition into a werewolf. It is during this 6 hour transition, while he is rolling on the ground with his bones breaking that he will be weakened. So the danger is that if Bonnie is unable to kill him at that time he will have the power of both an original vampire and a werewolf. So Elena was not on his hit list that night because it was not the full moon, and Bonnie was because she is too powerful.
Yes, this is still Elijah's exact same plan. He didn't fully tell it to everyone, for the same reason EVERY character in this show keeps secrets from someone else. To protect the plan, protect the person, to keep their option open (but mostly so the writers can have a story to tell over more than one episode).
Bella, I completly agree with your entire post. The other thing I would add is the look Elijah gave Elena when he said Oh My God. Right after she corrected him on being Elena not Katherine. Just before flashing back to the "forgive me, your remind me of someone".
This is a very good wrapup of what was learned and question we still have after the last episode.
@Halde We actually do not know when they became vampires or when Klaus was cursed. The only time reference we were given is that Klaus and Elijah started planting the Sun and Moon curse over 1000 years ago. Based on the fact Katherine showed up 500 years after the start of the Sun and Moon curse, and Elena 500 years later. I would guess they became vampires about 1000 years ago, and Klaus' curse was placed not to long after.
The aztecs lived in what is now Mexico, the Americas were only discovered in 1492 (the year Klaus and Elijah meet Katherine). The Petrovas were from Bulgaria, so there was no way an Easter European could have been sacraficed by the Aztecs. That was the part of the Sun and Moon curse that never made sense. Klaus and Elijah made their Aztec drawings look older than 1492, but were actually planted some time after that.
You can choose to believe whatever you want. Elijah did say they were human, not me. As you say they would be babies had they not turned at the ages they are now. Which was over 1000 years ago, when they started planting the Sun and Moon curse. I never said it had to be a witches spell. It could be priests, holy men, voodoo religion, druids.... I choose to believe it could be some sort of spell, no matter how silly it may seem to you. One thing is for sure we will find out at some latter time. Everything right now is just guess work.
The ring is useless if the vampire knows about it. As Damon showed Jeremy in the begining of this season. Damon was able to remove Jeremy's ring, remember he then threw it back at him. Klaus will also know, and Jeremy has offered it to her before and she always says no.
They were not "turned" by previous vampires, as we know vampires are now turned. I would guess it was some kind of spell that turned them, maybe one of the parents. The much older werewolves also started somehow. Elijah did say Klaus wants to sire his own race, is that by procreation or another method? The aging thing started when the family turned.
They were not born vampires. Elijah said the whole family was human. Then they became vampires, we will learn the story of how it happened latter on I'm sure. I do not think a werewolf can be turned into a vampire. It could only happen in this one special family of original vampires.
We know Klaus will be here next season, I truely hope Elijah is also. Elijah said he knows how to protect the doppleganger at the ritual, but he didn't say anything about the vampire or werewolf. We don't know that they are still needed for Klaus' curse, but we do see Caroline chained up in the previews for next week. We also know there is at least one tragic death at the ritual. We also know from the fact that Klaus is here next season Bonnie fails at killing him. So that is at least 3 major characters in high danger of not being here next season.
@ XxLuLuxX Yes we were watching the same show, he never said it like that. Here is what was said.
Elena: There's a whole family of originals?Elijah: My father was a whealthy land owner in a village in Eastern Europe. Our mother bore 7 children.Elena: So your parents were human?Elijah: Our whole family was, our origin as vampires is a very long story Elena. Just know we're the oldest vampires in the world. We are the original family, and from us all vampires were created.Elijah: So as you've seen nothing can kill an original. Not Sun, not fire, not even a werevolf bite. Only the wood from one tree, a tree my family made sure burned.Elijah: My family was quite close, but Klaus and my father did not get on too well. When we became vampires we discovered the truth. Klaus was not my father's son, my mother had been unfaithful many years before this was her darkest secret.
"We are the original family, a tree my family made sure burned. When we became vampires we discovered the truth." If it was only Elijah and Klaus, he would of said Klaus and I, not family. Also if it is only the 7 children, how did the father learn the truth, or kill a werevolf while still being human? I did incorrectly assume it was 7 brothers, there could be sisters also.
