E here for some super awesome power hearts TVD. ‘Heart of Darkness’ is what we’re working with tonight…doesn’t it seem like that’s been a title before?
We begin with Alaric in the jail/cage room at the SHBP. They’re keeping him locked up (with his permission) in the hopes that Bizarro Alaric will come out to play and tell them where the stake is hidden. Stefan is going to watch over things while Damon and Elena go take a Discover Elena’s Feelings trip to Colorado to pick up Jer Bear since Colorado is no longer safe. Alaric asks Elena if Stefan is bummed about this trip, but it was his idea because he wants to be with Elena who loves only him and not also his brother – so she needs to figure out his feelings (guess he’s not interested in making a sort of different ‘Big Love’ series?).
Caroline and Matt are at school prepping for another school dance (it’s time for this year’s decade dance!). Caroline claims that it’s supposed to be the 70′s, but Rebekah comes up and claims that it’s now the 20′s. A small spat occurs and Caroline marches off after Matt agrees with Rebekah. Matt and Caroline are then talking in the parking lot. This was apparently just a fakeout so Caroline could get out of there without Rebekah watching.
So, Stefan and Alaric decide to use some alcohol to speed up the lunatic process – but they also agree that Stefan may need to torture it out of him (we should probably call in Sayid Jarrah for back-up – LOST, what, what?!).
So, Damon used his miles to get first class seats for him and Elena…and now we’re in CO…with Jeremy…at the batting cages. (I don’t know why I just used ellipses for all that mess). They tell Jeremy that they need him to talk to Rose to find out who sired her. He’s like, okay, but first I need to hang out with my friend…who’s here now…and just hit Damon with a baseball bat…because it’s Kol…the Original (good use of ellipses). And then we all had a good LOL at Jeremy thinking he made a new BFF. Damon knocks Kol out and these three peeps scoot off to a motel (Damon seriously didn’t have some cash for a Hilton or some such?) Damon then refers to Jeremy as Whoopi – oh you! To summon Rose, Jer needs some info about her – Damon tells him about how she was in ‘paradise’ at the end…and she’s there. Pretty fast, better than Domino’s.
So, Caroline went to find Tyler in the woods. And they MAKE OUT. And it’s hot. Of course. Also, Matt just brought Rebekah home from school. She thinks he’s up to something, but he convinces her that he’s not. (Man, Matt has gotten good at lying with the gang).
Anyway, we learn that Rose was actually sired by someone names Mary. Damon refers to her as ‘Scary Mary’ in a very ‘ohh, brother’ sort of way. She also tells Jeremy that she’s rooting for Damon and Elena…and Jeremy’s face is all like whaaat? Jeremy asks Elena about Damon when they’re alone but, she doesn’t get the chance to explain.
Stefan and Alaric are still chilling; Alaric is sad that his evil self is driven by himself. Stefan reminds him that it’s just the darkest part of him. Lots of feelings stuff. Klaus comes; Stefan tells him the vampire lineage deal. Klaus then kills Alaric to further speed up the process of finding this stake. Stefan and Damon also have a little phone chat; Stefan is crazy jealous of Damon right now fo’ sho.
So, Mama Original shows up to Rebekah and is all “I’m dying.” But, I love you, you just weren’t meant to live forever. And Rebekah (who always is pulling at my heart strings) says that she hasn’t lived at all. Then they hold hands and Mama dies.
Caroline and Tyler are having some post vampire/hybrid sex discussion about how Tyler thinks he has control over the sire bond now, but he needs to test it. She also explains the vampire lineage problem to him.
Back in CO, Jeremy is real sleeping, Elena is fake sleeping, and Damon is wandering the room with his shirt open and boozin’. Elena looks at him and he notices her. He comes and lies down next to her and they talk about how he gave Rose paradise on her last day. She asks him why he never lets people see the good in him. And he explains that he doesn’t want people to expect it from him. Then there is some hot HAND HOLDING. And then she leaves. And he runs out after her. And then there is some…MAKING OUT. And it is hot (of course). But then, and you’re not going to be shocked by this, Jeremy comes out and catches them and spoils all of our good time. He’s also learned from Rose that Mary is in Kansas.
OK, back to our sad little Alaric/Stefan duo. Alaric is ready for some torture, so we start things off with a PUNCH.
Meanwhile, our trio of Jeremy, Damon, and Elena have found their way to a creepy house in Kansas. Elena tells Jeremy to wait outside and Jeremy is all “so you can make out?!” Oh Jeremy. Inside, things are creepy. Mary was on Hoarders:Vampire Edition. Yay! We found Mary! Boo. Mary is dead. Kol got there first and staked her. There’s some fighting; Kol leaves. Damon and Elena then have a feelings fight when he realizes that she’s trying to essentially figure out what brother to choose.
Back to Alaric and Stefan. My notes say: Bloodlust, crazy – Alaric/Stefan. So, Alaric was bleeding, Stefan was all weird, and now creepy Alaric is here. But, Stefan finds out the stake is in the ‘no vamps allowed’ cave. He locks Alaric back up and comes out to find Klaus is still there (with Rebekah). Klaus tells Stefan he is waiting for his friend ‘Ripper’ to come back. And Stefan is like I control my own destiny!! No more ripping! Stake me or get out!
In the car back to Mystic Falls, Elena and Damon are in the front with Jeremy in the back. Rose appears to Jeremy and tells him to not let on that she’s there. She explains that Damon challenges Elena so he could make her amazing or destroy her while Stefan has a pure and good love for Elena. (Ugg, choices are hard).
Over at Mama Sheriff’s house, Tyler is staying for some reason (in separate rooms of course!). Things are good until he sees the picture Klaus drew of her. Then he gets sort of mad/sad and leaves.
We end with Rebekah and Alaric going to the cave to get the stake. Turns out Rebekah can come in…because she’s Esther…in Rebekah’s body. END SCENE!
Guys, I’m sorry for all the ellipses…but they felt necessary. Anyway. Love this one. I really enjoyed seeing Rose again. And I loved her explanation of the boys’ love for Elena. I still want to see who sired everyone though. Kol still sucks. Jeremy is still sort of dumb but lovable. Tyler is irritating right now. You know? The usual. I don’t know! It was just a good episode. Also, I want Claire Holt to read me bedtime stories because I love her voice. See you next week!
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday nights at 8 PM on the CW.Tweet
