Katherine and Damon are on their road trip which at first seems rather aimless. I mean they get so bored they even make out with each other. And afterwards, Damon gets to tell her she no longer does it for him. He's earned that moment, no? Eventually Damon makes Katherine reveal her plan. She not only has the necklace. She has Jeremy. In the trunk! It seems Pearl once told our Kiki she knew a way to defeat Klaus, but Pearl never shared the hows and whys with Katherine, only with Anna. When Bonnie accidentally spilled the beans to Katherine about Vicki and Anna communicating with Germ from the Great Beyond, our girl got ideas. Anna has no intention of helping Katherine and Damon, but once Kiki puts the hurt on Jeremy, she gives in. The one person who can kill Klaus is Michael (or possible Mikael) the Vampire
Slayer Hunter. He's entombed right now, and if Damon and Kiki revive him, they'll be sorry, because he'll kill them, on account of them being vampires and all.
This week's event o' the week is Senior Prank Night. Everyone can just wander this school willy nilly at any time of day or night, and so they do, so they're easy for pickings for Klaus, Rebekah, and Stefan. Remember last week, when Katherine told Stefan that Klaus is smarter than everyone else? Well he kind of is. He knows the Original Witch hated him. She told him he had to kill the doppelganger. Now he knows that means he needs to keep Elena alive, so she can serve as wet nurse to his baby hybrids. That's right, they need doppelganger blood to complete their transition. His test case is Tyler. He feeds him some blood, and snaps his neck.
Klaus also orders Stefan -- and eventually compels Stefan (and why is he not sneaking some vervain) -- to kill some random kids, and then to feed on Elena. Stefan resists as best he can, and his best is not good enough. She winds up in the hospital, where Klaus siphons off her blood for future baby hybrids. Damon finally gets back to town and tries to stand up to Klaus, but Klaus has grown bored of tolerating Damon, 'til Damon says the magic word, "Michael" (or possibly "Mikael"), which sends Klaus on the run.
Damon gets Elena back home and promises he will never leave her again. He says he'll compel her to forget the painful events of the night if she wants, but Elena knows she needs to remember. She knows Stefan is lost to them now, except he's totally not, because he lets himself into Mossy Manse (Bonnie really has to work on finding a de-invite spell) and announces that his newest assignment is to watch over them during Klaus's absence.
In other news, Matt semi-kills himself and has Bonnie bring him back (but with CPR, not magic) in an attempt to reach Vicki. Also? When Rebekah is jealous, she makes, "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," sound like an understatement.
So, that was sort of a recaplet rather than a weecap, yeah? As always, there's way too much to cover in a quick shot like this, so I'll be back with the full weecap ASAP. In the meantime, please grade the episode up top and join us in the forum, where Damon will never leave you.
The Mystic Falls Event O' the Week is Senior Prank Night, in which residents punk their local senior citizens. Wait... that's not right. I think I broke my brain trying to make this an actual Weecap (as opposed to last week's 20 frickin' pager, which is practically a double recap). Hi. My name is Cindy, and I have a lot to say. Let's get right to it, shall we?
Mystic Falls High School, Interior, Night: You know how schools are generally creepy? They're even creepier at night, especially in vampire, werewolf, and now ghost and Original infested towns. The camera man takes us on a silent tour. Well, it's almost silent, except for some clanking. Are Vicki and Anna dragging chains around the hereafter, now? Nope, it's just Matt, who must have broken into the school to work out in the weight room. Um? Look, this is a nit I already picked in the recaplet and may pick in more detail later on, but it's patently stupid that students can wander the high school at night without adult supervision. Anyhow, Matt is sweating like a pig, because the sadistic writers and wardrobe crew have him severely overdressed. He's not just NOT shirtless, he's wearing a hoodie too, which means we can't even see his biceps. I'm tempted to give the episode an F right now, and get on with my weekend -- well, with my kids' weekend. I have precious little life of my own. The only thing I have to say to this weekend goes thusly: the line to kiss me forms to the rear. Okay, I just convinced myself. I'll keep writing.
Anyhow, when Matt pauses during his workout, he hears a bang coming from the hall and goes to investigate, without even wiping the sweat off his face -- sweat that rivals Damon's death sweat from the Season 2 finale. Matty, take off those two shirts -- both of which are extraneous -- and wipe your face. Please? He doesn't listen. Instead he tracks the noise to a dark classroom. Don't go in there! You're going to be attacked -- attacked by a vicious evil. He doesn't listen to me about this any more than he listened to me about his shirt atrocities. He steps in the room. There is a horrible banging and snapping. Is it the horrible banging and snapping of fangs? Matt turns on the light to see what fresh hell he's in, and realizes he has fallen prey to hundreds of vicious, evil, fangy... mousetraps? Caroline yells for me. "OH C'MON?! SERIOUSLY? Do you know how long it took for us to set all this up?" All right, time to pick a nit....
