    The Sun Also Rises.

    Thursday, May 05 2011
    Bonnie, Damon, Stefan and the others try to prevent Klaus' sacrifice from going ahead.


    Caroline and Matt lock themselves into the Lockwood crypt while Tyler tries to get them. Matt shoots him down so Caroline rushes them out. They run to the house and hide. He explains that he faked forgetting she was a vampire at her mom's prompting. She wonders what this means for their relationship and worries that her mom wants to kill her. Something thumps against the door. She goes out and finds Tyler naked on the porch. Caroline puts him to bed. Matt talks about how fun the last few days have been... but he doesn't think he can get over her being a vampire.



    At Ric's, Damon shows Katherine his werewolf bite. He's about to walk out but she keeps him there to apologize. "Enjoy an eternity alone," he says before explaining that he'll offer himself to Klaus. Katherine says he doesn't have a chance. He heads home and John arrives looking for his daughter. Damon fills him in on the latest.



    Elijah leads Alaric and Stefan out to the woods, explaining his strategy. Damon calls to tell them that Klaus has Jenna. Meanwhile, Bonnie and Jeremy are searching for spells. Ric shows up and fills Jeremy in while Stefan and Elijah explain the latest to Bonnie. Stefan explains that he's going to offer himself in Jenna's place. He walks off and speaks to Elijah, questioning whether he can trust him. Elijah explains that his brother killed their entire family and hid their bodies so they could never be laid to rest. He wants revenge. Back at the house, Ric tells Damon what his brother is going to do. Damon is furious. He goes inside where John explains a spell they can use to save Elena's soul. Bonnie casts a spell on John and then knocks Jeremy out with a kiss. As she leaves with the vampires, she casts a spell to keep Ric in the house.



    In the woods, Elena sits with Jenna, who tells her about Klaus forcing her to drink his blood. Greta traps them in a circle of fire and offers Jenna her blood. As Jenna sucks, Elena gasps. Jenna realizes she's dead and she's going to die. Greta drops Jules by the fire. Klaus shows up. "Hello my lovelies. Are we ready?" he asks. He takes out the moonstone and the spell starts. Klaus tears out Jules' heart and starts squeezing the blood into the fire. Jenna begins babbling about being a failure. When Klaus turns his attention to them, Elena begs him to spare Jenna. He's distracted by Stefan showing up. Jenna uses her vampire hearing to listen in and tips Elena off. The women pace while the men return. Klaus suddenly stakes Stefan and then dumps him on the ground. Jenn attacks Greta so Klaus stakes her until she turns gray. Her blood is poured in the potion and Klaus offers Elena his hand. As they approach the fire, Stefan tries to pull himself up. Klaus drinks from Elena and the fire goes out. As he walks, he starts to transform but then flies to the ground as Bonnie and Damon arrive. Damon drags away Elena's body as Klaus flails around and Bonnie sends flames across the field. Elijah swans in and shoves his hand in his brother's chest. Before he can pull out his heart, Klaus offers to lead him to the bodies of their family members. Elijah turns to Stefan and apologizes before vanishing into the fire with his brother.



    The next day, Ric, Jeremy and John wait for news. John writes a letter for Elena and hands Jeremy a ring. He asks them to take care of each other, then slowly walks outside and drops dead. Damon arrives with Elena. She gasps as she comes back to life. Later, Elena tries to cope with losing her parents. She and Jeremy prepare to bury them. He gives her the letter and ring. She's sorry for everyone he's lost because of her. In the letter, John wrote of what a failure he was and how much better he wishes her life was. As the burial commences, the Salvatore brothers are left not knowing what to do about Elijah and Klaus. Damon shows his brother the bite, which has now rotted most of his arm. Stefan promises that they will find a cure.



    Back at Caroline's, Tyler wakes up with her beside him. She tells him he should have never left and asks him to apologize for trying to eat her. As she sobs, he cuddles up with her and he thanks her for taking care of him.



    Cryptic commentary: A really unusual episode. The tone was divisive and a lot was packed in. The Tyler-Caroline-Matt scenes were great and struck a good balance. Klaus' sacrifice scene still felt a bit rushed and was, deliberately, anti-climactic, which I didn't expect. That's good though because I don't want Klaus and Elijah to vanish too easily since they add so much. I still want more from them. The last ten minutes of the episode felt like a completely different show. More excitingly, the episode actually managed to open up a lot more possibilities than I was expecting.

    I am disappointed that Jenna died and that Elijah did not keep his promise although I understand that he wanted to find the rest of his family. But, did Greta die? I saw that Jenna came after her but did not know if she died or not.

    I like that Matt and Caroline had an open honest discussion and he’s allowed to feel how he feels. Now that Matt is no longer in the pictures, Caroline is free. Also, Tyler needs Caroline as Jules is no longer in the picture to help him out. I do wonder what Matt will say to the sheriff.

    Jenna had balls. I was surprised when she went after Greta instead of running like Elana asked her. Not that she would have gotten far with Klaus and Greta there. Sad that Jenna is dead but am glad that she went out with a bang. Who will be the children’s guardian now? Will they be wards of the state? Did John draw up papers saying who should be responsible for them?

    I was not surprised that Bonnie knocked Jeremy out with that kiss as there was no way she would have let him go with them. He would have been too worried about her and wondering if she was exerting herself and distract her. I was surprised that she trapped Ric in the house.

    I had to laugh when Klaus was all happy saying how he can feel the transformation and silly Greta (did she seriously think she could trust him when he no longer needs her?!) is there smiling and out of nowhere Bonnie comes out and break up their little party. Silly Klaus, told Bonnie that she’s supposed to be dead. Does he think that he’s the only one with a back-up plan?!?

    The writers did say that season 3 is the season of the originals. Guess that means that we will learn what Klaus did to his other siblings. But do they seriously want 5 other originals walking around? Wouldn’t the others be really angry with Klaus and want revenge? So, that would be a war between siblings that would never end. Also, how was he supposed to kill them if only the white oak ash and silver that Elijah has is the only weapon to kill an original and even then they can still come back to life.

    What makes Elijah so sure that he can trust Klaus and that he’s not saying whatever to save his own ass?!? He reminds me of Katherine, selfish to the core. Funny how in the beginning of the episode I was telling my friend that I hope the 5 other originals are as honorable as Elijah.

    Since Bonnie has so much powers now, can’t she reverse the curse of the sun and the moon? Or do something to prevent him from creating a hybrid race?

    diarymaid: Greta got distracted when Bonnie showed up and Damon sneaked up behind her and broke her neck.

    Nat21: Thanks for the clearing up about Greta! I had recorded it and looked again and saw that Damon took her out! Anyway, I remember John looking at Alaric when he said for them to take care of each other before he stepped outside and collapse (heart attack?) and died. Maybe he drew up papers for Alaric to be their (Jeremy and Elena) legal guardian. But, since Elena is still 17 (this show has been on for two seasons and wasn't she 17 when it started? Elena will be of age soon so it will only be Jeremy that will need guardianship. But, I believe that Alaric will be their guardian in the meantime. Also, I remember in a previous episode before Isobel killed herself in front of Elena that she told Elena that her parents (Elena's grandparents) always visit Isobel's grave. Would they become Elena's guardians? Who knows which way the writers are going to go with this story but that is something to think about. It will be good to see how things play next fall for the Season 3 with the Originals.

    Yes Dairymaid, Greta is dead, because Damon broke her neck.

    I was also surprised that they killed Jenn off but someone had to die! LOL! I felt a little upset that Elijah didnt keep his promise but am also glad that keeps both he and Klaus in the storyline. I just hope they figure out a cure for Damon's werewolf bite. Can't Bonnie cast a spell or sumthin'?! Love Caroline and Tyler as well as Bonnie and Jeremy. Can't wait til Thursday for the season finale!
