This episode gave us a lot, including two deaths. We were sad about them, because these two were only guilty of trusting the wrong people (until Jonas' revenge frenzy). They were good people who were just trying to save the life of a family member. Jonas’ death was particularly sad for us. We never really warmed up to Luka. But Jonas DID stab Matt in the neck, so maybe we aren’t that sad.
The Vampire Diaries has been teasing that Aunt Jenna would finally be told what’s going on in Mystic Falls for a while now. The actress has given interviews about it as well. Amazingly, we totally forgot about the possibility of Matt finding out the truth. But this show loves to surprise us. Matt knows that Caroline is a vampire and that his sister, Vicki, was right about their existence. This ended on a cliffhanger: Matt looked like he was blaming Caroline for his sister’s death. Hopefully, when he stops yelling, Caroline will be able to tell him that she was turned after Vicki’s death. We forget how much Matt has been through because he has been so stable this season. The real question for us is whether Matt is down with dating a vampire, even if she does sing to him so beautifully. That was a little cheesy, but we love Matt and Caroline so much that we will accept it. We also loved his reaction to hearing the truth - it felt real and we don't blame him for totally freaking out.
Also, now Bonnie knows how to kill Klaus. Good. Let’s get that party started. Also, we love that Damon had the fortitude to reject Katherine’s sex offer. We've also decided that Katherine should not die at the end of this season. We like her.
This show is now on hiatus and will return April 7th. We are pissed.
Episode grade: A+
