The Vampire Diaries- Kill or Be Killed recap and thoughts

What happened/the recap (skip if you know what happened)
A year ago, Hot Uncle Mason got in a fight with a drunk guy who thought Mason was sleeping with his girlfriend. Mason accidently killed him, and we knew instantly that was how he had triggered the werewolf curse. Flash to present day. Mason was explaining this to Tyler. We know Tyler is going to trigger the curse too. We don’t know how, we don’t know when, and we don’t know why, but we know it will happen. We are on the lookout, and that’s what the show intended.

The town was having a picnic where Stefan tried to make friends with Mason. Mason didn’t trust Stefan, because Stefan’s brother stabbed him last episode. Mason told the sheriff, Caroline’s mom, that Damon and Stefan were vampires. Sheriff Liz defended Damon, saying that Damon was her vampire-killing buddy. So Mason spiked Damon’s picnic drink with vervain and used a little girl to deliver it. Sheriff Liz realized the truth as she watch Damon cough and weaken, as Stefan patted him on the back. Knowing Mason was the source of the bad batch of lemonade, Damon and Stefan followed him into the woods only to be ambushed by Sheriff Liz and her cop cronies. The cops shot them and took them down into old slave quarters to question and kill them. Damon woke up first, because he drinks human blood and is stronger. We were sad that Sheriff Liz was really going to kill the brothers, even after all the times Damon helped her. Sad. Caroline realized with her vampire senses that the brothers were in trouble, so she and Elena left the picnic to find them. Then, we were introduced to awesome, bad ass Caroline. She killed the two cops and kicked Mason’s butt single-handedly. She was left with a very unflattering blood goatee, but it was still awesome. Sheriff Liz did not take the news that her daughter was a vampire well. She asked Damon to hurry and kill her, because she couldn’t take it. She also said that Caroline wasn’t her daughter. “My daughter is gone.”

The plan, obviously, was to wait until Sheriff Liz got the vervain out of her system and then compel her into forgetting the whole day. Way to go Mason. All your little revenge prank did was get a couple of innocent cops killed. The sweetest part of the episode was when Caroline told Elena what Elena already knew—that Katherine was getting Caroline to spy on the brothers and Elena. Then she told Elena what Elena had already guess—that Katherine threatened Matt to get Caroline under her control. Stefan, worried about the threat of Katherine hanging out there somewhere, suggested that he start drinking human blood so he could be strong. He thought that he could build up a tolerance to human blood so he wouldn’t freak out and become a monster on it. Elena didn’t approve and the two fought. Damon took Stefan’s side, obviously, so Elena came around. Elena likes Damon again, because he spared Caroline’s mom. Elena went to Stefan and let him drink her blood. His face started to get all weird and savage, but when Elena kissed him, his face went back to normal. So we guess Elena can help him control it.

Jeremy found out about the Lockwood curse from the old Gilbert diary. He went over to Tyler’s, where Tyler was entertaining two underage girls with alcohol. He has no powers and he uses them irresponsibly. He is going to be the most annoyingly dangerous preternatural teen ever when he triggers the curse. Jeremy showed off his folder of werewolf drawings, clueing Tyler into the fact that Jeremy knew his secret. Tyler violently confronted Jeremy and calmed down once Jeremy started talking. They discussed the secret amiably, and Tyler showed Jeremy the much-coveted moonstone. One of the girls came in and stole the moonstone, trying to get the guys to play with her. One, who was crushing on Jeremy, ran up the stairs with the stone. Tyler followed her and grabbed for the stone, causing her to tumble down the stairs. As she lay silently on the floor, everyone thought, “Oh man, that’s it. Tyler triggered the curse.” But the show was faking us out. The show likes to tease us by saying, “Oh you think we are so predictable, but we are not. Let us dangle the plot point you would employ in front of your faces, then jerk it away and replace it with something more awesome.” Tyler gave Mason the stone that night. Then, the twist! Mason met Katherine in a car, gave her the stone, and then they made out. We didn’t guess the two were in cahoots, but we should have, since they arrived in town at the same time.

-Elena and Caroline’s friendship is a lot stronger this season than last season, and that’s because Caroline isn’t just a jealous frenemy anymore. She has developed into an interesting, loving, and brave character this season. Maybe vampirism is good for some people.
-Ern thinks the moonstone gives werewolves the ability to be strong and transform on days other than the full moon. Leeard thinks this would be too obvious, and this show is anything but obvious. But what else could it be?
-This show has about three twists per episode. Are they ever going to run out of twists?
-Where was Matt? We miss him, and we are not pleased that he is being threatened. If Katherine kills him, we are going to scream at the TV. We await his reunion with Caroline, because we think she is worthy of him now, because she's really shown how much she cares about him.
-There’s never really anything to say about this show besides, “Wow, what a great show.” Nonwatchers are missing out. Sure, something called “The Vampire Diaries” sounds like the lamest thing ever (Leeard had to beg Ern to watch it and send her links many times), but it isn’t. It rocks. Can’t wait for next week.
-Jeremy needs to die. Permanently die, not become undead.
Episode Grade- A-


  1. "There’s never really anything to say about this show besides, “Wow, what a great show.”

    Agreed! this show is amazing this year!

    not a big Jeremy fan either, but oh well, not every character can be COMPLETELY AWESOME right? I'm still hoping he'll get his groove on this year....

    MINOR SPOLIER- I don't think Matt's going anywhere- julie plec said that Matt represents everything that is normal and human in mystic falls, which is why they want to keep him from knowing about the vamps as long as possible.

    Remember when Zach R. played Cash on FNL? He's hardly recognizable. nice range right? anyway I'm glad that VD has some connection to my numero uno favorite drama, because it's quickly becoming number 2...


  2. ...FNL returns in 18 days!....I'm counting down..

  3. We're glad for the Matt info, and we are going to ALL OVER fnl when it comes back. We love it too.
