Oh What A Tangled Web Klaus Weaves (Recap 3x08 The Vampire Diaries)

Season 3, Episode 8, Ordinary People, The Vampire Diaries, Original Airdate 11/03/11
Alaric, Damon and Elena go back to the cave tunnels from the last episode. The walls are filled with hieroglyphics and Viking script that dates back to even before the New World. Alaric deciphers the script into the names: Niklaus, Rebekah, Elijah and Michael. Do these names sound familiar? Damon is now nicknaming Michael "Daddy Original."

Elena decides she is going to talk to Rebekah to get more information and Alaric takes pictures of the drawings to analyze at home.

Elena meets with Rebekah at school, who won't give her any information but is visibly shaken up when Elena discloses that they know where Michael's body is. Later, Rebekah texts Elena to come over. When she arrives Rebekah has a group of compelled girls wearing possible homecoming dress choices. She makes Elena be her consultant about which dress to wear.

After an impromptu fashion show of possible homecoming dresses and a not so veiled threat of bodily harm to Elena, Rebekah finally starts to give some clues about her past. Her family moved to this country after a plague took out one of their children. They were told of this land by a witch, Ayanna. The catch to living in the new place was that it was inhabited by werewolves.
As long as they stayed in on the nights when the werewolves changed, they were able to live peacefully with them. However, one night Niklaus and his brother Henry decided they wanted to watch the change. Bad idea. Henry was killed by one of the wolves, thus ending the camaraderie between the two groups.
In order to become the superior species, Michael and his wife Esther begged Ayanna to turn the family into vampires. After she refused to do so, Esther did it herself by calling on the sun and the white oak tree, which was a symbol of immortality. Turns out Mommy Dearest was a witch herself, none other than the Original Witch. Michael gave his children wine spiked with blood at dinner one night and then killed them. When they awoke, he made them drink blood to complete their transition into vampires. But the new vampires were met with several obstacles to their new way of life. They were unable to go out in sunlight, people who they once considered friends could forbid them from entering their homes, a certain plant (vervain) could burn them if they touched it and helped non-vampires to resist being compelled. The white oak tree could kill them.
After Klaus made his first human kill as a vampire, his werewolf gene was triggered. Yep, Michael was not Esther's baby daddy. She had an affair with one of the werewolf villagers. In order to control Klaus's wolf side Esther put the hybrid curse on him. Michael however, went a little crazy and killed half the village and then came home and killed his wife. He ripped her heart out of her chest in front of Klaus.
Michael left and it was only Rebekah, Klaus and Elijah who remained of the family. They made a pact to "stick together as one, always and forever."
Elena, Alaric and Bonnie crack the hieroglyphic code and Elena realizes that Klaus has been lying to Rebekah all this time. It was he who killed their mother, not Michael. Elena tells Rebekah the truth. She doesn't want to believe her at first, but then she breaks down in despair as Klaus's web of lies becomes visible.
Damon spent the majority of this episode with Stefan. He decided instead of Vampire Rehab Lexie style he was going to let Stefan make his own choice. He releases him from the vampire holding cell and takes him to a bar for some drinks. They have waitresses on the rocks with a whiskey chaser. In regards to Stefan following Klaus's orders, Damon tells him, "You can sit around and be his little bitch, or you can get mad enough and you can do something about it."
At about that point Michael shows up offering to help kill Klaus. Stefan at first refuses to tell Michael where Klaus is. But when Michael plunges his hand into Damon's chest, threatening to rip his heart out, Stefan proves again that blood is thicker, gives in and says that he will lure Klaus back to Mystic Falls. In the parking lot when they leave the bar, both Damon and Stefan accuse each other of having their humanity show. Them's fighting words in the vampire community and they tussle in the parking lot, with Damon pretty much kicking Stefan's ass.
For the Damon and Elena shippers, the hot Delena scene of this episode would have to be when Elena is sparring with Damon practicing her knife-wielding skills. Damon easily stops her, spins her around, pulls her against him and then pretends to bite her neck.
Then at the very end , Damon is laying on her bed when she comes out of the bathroom. After being unable to tug the covers out from under him she gets under the sheets with him still paper weighting the side he is on. She tells him, "I'm not mad ad you for letting [Stefan] out, Damon. I think you're gonna be the one to save him from himself. It won't be because he loves me. It'll be because he loves you."
Jeremy, Tyler, Caroline and Matt did not make appearances in the episode.
I might be sorry if Stefan and Elena get back together at this point.

The Vampire Diaries - Ghost World (Season 3 episode 7) Recap

Thursday night's episode of The Vampire Diaries was chock full of the good, the bad, and the dead. While this show is normally always a mix of all three of these components, this episode leaned more heavily on the dead side of things. It turns out that when Bonnie brought Jeremy back to life after his foray into dead-dom she left a metaphysical door cracked leading to the other side. When she put Vicki back, ironically enough, the doorway became even larger, thanks mostly in part to a long-deceased witch that has a beef with the Original Vampires.
So now not only is Mystic Falls crawling with vampires, witches and werewolves, we now have ghosts creating all sorts of chaos.
Bonnie uses a spell that makes "veiled matter" (AKA ghosts) visible, so instead of just Jeremy being able to see the ghosts, they are visible to everyone.
Grams is the one who fills Bonnie in on why the ghosts are back. The original witch that is the catalyst of all this is drawing power from a talisman that is still over on our side. Said talisman is none other than the necklace that Stefan presented to Elena way back when.
Mason Lockwood comes back to ilk an apology out of Damon, and once Damon actually offers a feeble one (his so-called apology sounds more like a reiteration that he can just be an asshole sometimes and sidesteps using the actual words, 'I'm sorry.') Once Mason is satisfied he offers to help Damon find the secret to killing Klaus. Mason's motive is saving his nephew, Tyler and the not so small issue of Redemption.
Anna and Jeremy still have their other-worldly thing going, and they take it to the next level when Jeremy plants a kiss on her in the bathroom of Mystic Grill. Elena walks in on them and is not happy about what she sees.
Lexie finds Elena and offers to help eradicate "The Ripper" and help turn Stefan's humanity back on. She starts this process by confining Stefan in the city jail vampire room that Caroline spent time in during previous episodes.
She somehow accelerates the process of drying him out from human blood so that in about a minutes time he is having withdrawal effects equivalent to 5 years of being off the sauce. Then in an effort to make him feel human emotions again she stabs him periodically, listening to him snarling and spitting all the while.
The ghosts of the evil tomb vampires are back and seeking revenge on the founders of Mystic Falls. They not only murder history teacher Tobias Fell, but also string him up in a tree in all his bloody glory for all to see in the middle of Illumination Night.
The way to return all the apparitions back to whence they came is to destroy the necklace, which of course happens to be M.I.A. when the gang needs it. It finally turns out that Anna is hanging on to it in hopes of being reunited with her mother. She finally 'fesses up and gives it to Jeremy who passes it along to Bonnie.
Bonnie and Grams get their witch on and close the door to the Other Side. Much to the chagrin of some-- (Damon, because Mason was just about to clue him in on how to destroy Klaus and Elena, because Lexie was detoxing Stefan) and relief of others (Caroline, who was in the middle of fighting the tomb vamps that were going to lay the smack-down on Mrs. Lockwood and Bonnie herself, because she was having to compete with Anna for Jeremy's affections.)
In the end, Elena still hasn't given up on Stefan, but has at least decided she's not going to wait for him forever (literally, in his case). Bonnie can't accept that Jeremy wasn't ready to let Anna go gently into that good night and tells him to go, she doesn't want his explanation. Not long after Jeremy leaves, Bonnie sees that even though the necklace should've been melted in the fireplace, it is still intact.
Damon and Alaric take a step towards becoming bros again, when Alaric comes to help Damon after Mason disappears. They discover something in the underground Lockwood tunnels, but no details are revealed yet.
The only mention of Michael during this episode was by Mason when he told Damon he knew that trying to bring back Michael to kill Klaus did not work. Nothing was said about Katherine's fate.
Overall this was a pretty good episode. I liked that Damon and Ric may be patching up their friendship a little bit. I was disappointed that Jeremy and Bonnie are on the outs now, although I don't blame Bonnie for not wanting to compete with dead ex-lovers. Elena, while giving a speech to Jeremy about having to move on and not love a ghost for the rest of his life, realizes that she is doing that very same thing by holding on to the memory of what Stefan was.
My questions about this episode, more for the curiosity factor than problematic loose ends are:
How did Damon get loose from the chair that Mason had him chained in during the beginning of the episode? That was never addressed. He went from being roasted by the sun to pulling up in his convertible outside of the school to talk to Bonnie and Caroline.
Now that all the townspeople saw Tobias Fell's mauled corpse on display will anybody follow up on what happened there? Along those lines ... Mystic Falls seems to have an abundance of disappearing and/or murdered people. Is all that being covered up by the Town Council?
Although I don't think he did, I was unsure for awhile about Mason not having an ulterior motive for bringing Damon into the underground tunnel.
What happened to Katherine and Michael?
What are your theories about this episode?
'Til next time ... goodnight, sleep tight, don't let the vampires bite.

Recap of The Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 6 - Smells Like Teen Spirit

Stefan is still frustrating Damon as he continues to stay at the house, wreaking bloody havoc with the vampire version of Twister. To make matters worse, Klaus abandoned Rebecca so she moves herself into Salvatore Manor becoming an annoyance to both brothers.
This is the gang's first day back at school for their Senior year. Although Caroline, Bonnie and Elena are all having their own unique blend of man trouble they are trying to make the best of it as well as at the back-to-school bonfire party that is planned for later that evening.
You know, there were parts of high school that really sucked sometimes, but looking back, at least I never had to deal with the guys in my life becoming vampire/werewolf hybrids, losing their humanity or seeing their dead girlfriends. So I guess I gotta be thankful for that.
Elena doesn't get much of a chance to act on this new leaf she's turning over before Stefan shows up at school so he can continue to be her undead guardian. His new term of endearment for her is "Human Blood Bag." Aww, how sweet, I might swoon.
In one of the few bits of time that Elena has where Stefan is not shadowing her, she meets with Damon, Alaric, and Caroline to talk about a plan to vervain Stefan and lock him up until Michael (the vampire, vampire hunter) is back in commission and kills Klaus.
After last week's brush with death Matt is still able to see Vicki and she starts trying to recruit him to help her come back from the Other Side. He finally agrees and performs a blood ritual involving candles and a picture of them together as children.
At the bonfire, Elena starts to put her plan into action by (mostly) faking being drunk and luring Stefan off to the bleachers. She climbs over the railing near the top and then purposely (I think, maybe it was unintentional, I haven't decided yet) falls off. Stefan comes to her rescue, catching her before she hits the ground. They share a brief OMG-Is-Stefan-coming-around-moment? before Ric comes up and knocks Stefan out with vervain.
After Matt brings Vicki back, she informs him that her repayment to the witch who helped her is to stop the creation of hybrids. To do this, she intends to kill Elena. She clocks Matt with a tire iron and heads off to the bonfire.
Alaric and Elena have Stefan loaded into an SUV. She gets in and waits for Alaric to get in on the driver's side. Before he is able, Vicki drops a lit joint into a puddle of gasoline that not-so-coincidently has been spread under the SUV and around the tires. The car bursts into flames with Elena unable to get out because a ghostly Vicki is now in the car with her, holding down the door locks. Alaric tries but is having a hard time getting the window to break so he can help Elena. Elena manages to wake up Stefan enough so he can kick the back door off the vehicle. Alaric gets her out and then she makes sure they get Stefan out as well.
In the meantime Bonnie has met up with Matt and they are trying to undo him bringing Vicki back. Bonnie successfully gets the spell started, but in order for it to work Matt has to release the emotional hold that he has on his sister. He is sad about it but manages to do so, and she disappears.
Later once they are home and Elena's wounds are tended to, Stefan observes that she didn't have to save him from the burning SUV. She lets him know that she hasn't given up on him yet ... and for all those that are hoping that Stefan becomes the less evil version of himself ... well, you better keep hoping. He proves he is still an ass by telling Elena that she is pathetic to still believe in him. But, (yay girl power!) Elena uses a glove like device that Alaric made to jam wooden stakes into his stomach, which effectively ends his smugness, well at least for this episode.
Also noteworthy this episode: Bonnie is understandably not happy that Jeremy is able to communicate with his dead ex's, although after banishing Vicki now she only has to worry about Anna. And, she probably should be worried seeing how as at the end of this episode Anna appears to Jeremy (because he keeps thinking about her) and when they touch they can feel each other. Uh-oh. Smells like trouble.
Tyler has been acting loyal towards Klaus. It turns out that he's been "sired" which in vampire lingo means that you form an attachment to the vamp that created you and you want to impress them. He seems to snap out of it a bit when Caroline calls him on it, but by the end of the episode, Rebecca shows up at his place with a little snack for him, which to his credit (I guess) he tries to resist, but then can't hold himself back anymore and sinks his teeth into said snack's neck.
For people who are Damon/Elena shippers, they had an encounter that was just below steamy. To demonstrate the best way to get to a vampire's heart Damon holds Elena's hand against his chest to show her how difficult it would be to stab through, then he spins her around and runs his hand over a spot between the bottom of her ribs and hip, explaining that this place in particular would be a much better access point. He tells her that he will not let harm come to her.
Then, even though it was part of "the plan" Elena gets jealous when Damon flirts with Rebecca to distract her at the bonfire.
So ... lately I have been finding myself wanting to see Damon and Elena together. I guess I like the bad boy part of Damon, but not the ruthless, bloodthirsty, savage killer part of him. With him, I'm not sure you can have one without the other. But, I have a feeling we are going to find out as the season progresses.
Katherine manages to wake up Michael, who informs her that he no longer feeds on living things. She doesn't get the hint quick enough and he makes her his comeback meal.
Oh, yes. I almost forgot to mention that Mason Lockwood has returned. We should learn more about that in the next episode.
A few random questions I am throwing out there to anyone who cares to comment:

How is it that Stefan has a tattoo? Is that possible? I was thinking the with him being a vampire he would heal too quickly for the tattoo to take, but maybe the tattoo itself would just heal more quickly.
How is it that when Matt hugged Vicki after he cut his hand he didn't get blood on her shirt?
Doesn't anyone at the school or bonfire think it's weird that Stefan and Elena are no longer getting along? Maybe they just assume they broke up over the summer.

I've been wondering this one for awhile: What happens if Tyler accidentally bites or scratches Caroline when they are getting it on? I've been wondering that since before he became a hybrid. Now I wonder if a hybrid bite or scratch has the same effect on a vampire that a regular werewolf's would?

Yes, these are the things I think about. Welcome to my world.

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 4, Disturbing Behavior Recap

Episode 4x04 starts in a Chicago boutique with Klaus and Stefan waiting for Rebecca to find an outfit from this century that she likes.  Some what would normally be good natured teasing passes between the three of them, but with this group you can never be too sure that someone's not about to stab you in the heart.

Stefan steps outside to get a little fresh air and sees Katherine across the street.

At the Gilbert household Damon and Elena do a little light flirting over some simmering chili.  Alaric eyes their exchange warily and asks Damon why he is there.  Damon is waiting for the inevitable fallout that Elena is going to experience over having lost Stefan and he will be there to catch her when it happens.  Elena insists she will be fine, causing Damon to point out she was still wearing Stefan's necklace.

Stefan talks to Katherine for a few minutes, long enough for her to drop a few snarky comments and try to weasel information out of Stefan regarding what he is up to.  She knows that Elena has the necklace that Klaus needs.  She tells Stefan that he needs to be careful when dealing with Klaus, and his sister too, for that matter.

Jeremy wakes up from a dream to find Anna laying next to him in bed.  She is ecstatic that he can actually hear her, because she's been trying to communicate with him for days.  He said he happened to be dreaming about her and it seems like that is why he can see and hear her now.

Caroline shows up at Elena's door, along with Bonnie, who is back from spending time with her Dad's family.  As she and Jeremy reunite he catches a glimpse of Anna in a mirror.  He is a little thrown by it, but continues to greet Bonnie.

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 3 - The End of the Affair Recap

Original airdate September 29, 2011

Damon gets a call from Katherine, who knows what Stefan and Klaus are up to and that Klaus is not a happy camper that his hybrids didn't work.  Damon thinks that she knows where they are and tries to find out what she knows.

Klaus and Stefan arrive in Chicago.  It turns out that Chicago was one of the places Stefan lived for awhile.  This was back in Stefan's Ripper days and Stefan says he doesn't remember much about that time because most of it was a blacked out blur. The time that Stefan was in Chicago was during prohibition.  The show flashes back to that time and Stefan is in the back of a car with a woman and has just finished feeding from her. 

He leaves the car and goes into a speakeasy where there is dancing and drinking.  He makes the acquaintance of a blonde woman who knows what he is and what he's just been doing.  She won't give him her name and it's easy to see that Stefan is intrigued.

Season 3 Episode 2, The Vampire Diaries, The Hybrid

Elena goes to Damon's house to talk to him because he has not returned her calls. Elena tells him that she got a call from Stefan and although he didn't say anything she thinks that him even calling means that she still has hope to save him. As they talk Damon burns the notes and articles he has been keeping as he tracked Stefan and Klaus.

Then Elena goes to see Alaric and convinces him to tell her what he knows about what Stefan and Klaus are up to.

Klaus and Stefan are walking through the woods of the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee. Stefan is carrying Ray across his shoulders. They find Ray's pack camped out in the woods. Klaus introduces himself, shocking the pack because they already know he is the hybrid.

At the Lockwood residence, Carol Lockwood adds a vial of Vervain to the carafe of coffee on the table. Tyler comes in and fixes himself a cup. Mrs. Lockwood makes a snarky comment about Caroline sneaking out like a prostitute earlier. Tyler takes a swig of the coffee and tells his Mom the cream must be bad. He also corrects his mother, telling her that Caroline is not a prostitute. After he leaves Mrs. Lockwood sighs in relief. She makes a phone call to a man named Bill, telling him she has a vampire problem.

Jeremy talks to Matt at Mystic Grill and gets him to consent to try to make contact with Vicki.

The Vampire Diaries, Season 3 Episode 1 - The Birthday Recap

They're bbbaaaccckkkk . . .

Nope not poltergiests this time.  Vampires, werewolves and witches.  It's Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries.

3x01 The Birthday
Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries kicks off in Tennessee with a young lady going outside to look for her dog.  Klaus shows up pretending that he is having car trouble and tries to get the girl to let him inside to use the phone.  He promises he's not a serial killer, he just conveniently leaves out that he's a hybrid vampire - werewolf.

She says he can't come in so he sheds his nice-guy demeanor and grabs her by the throat, compelling her to let him go in the house.

They enter the house where Klaus talks to the girl's roomate about someone named Ray Sutton.  The roomate says she doesn't don't know where Ray is and Klaus threatens much pain if he has to make her tell him.  During the exchange of dialogue it is alluded to that Ray is a werewolf.

She takes off and tries to run out of the front door, but when she opens it Stefan fills the doorway, looking moodily in.  The roomate caves and tells Klaus that the guy he is looking for is at a bar called Southern Comfort. 

Klaus gets the original girl to let Stefan come in, whereupon he unleashes Stefan on the two women as he goes to wait in the car.

Now it is morning at the Gilbert residence.  Elena gets up and then gets Jeremy up, informing him he is late to work. 

Elena speaks to Caroline on the phone and asks that Caroline keep the birthday party she is having for Elena on the small side.  We find out that Alaric has been camping out on the couch at the Gilbert's for half of the summer.

Elena heads over to the Salvatore's where Damon says, 'Top of the mornin'' while wearing nothing but his birthday suit and bath bubbles.  Elena gives Damon some information animal attacks in Tennessee and she wants him to check them out to see if it is possibly connected with Klaus.

Jeremy is now working at the Mystic Grill and Bonnie is out of town visiting her Dad's family.
While he is working in the back Jeremy has a flash of a person in front of him who appears to be his ex-girlfriend Vicki.

Tyler and Caroline ponder how it's weird that people think they are dating, even though they do spend all their time together.

Klaus and Stefan find Ray Sutton at Southern Comfort and Klaus reveals he is a hybrid and wants to create more hybrids.  He wants Ray to take him to his pack.
Alaric and Damon go to check on the possible lead that Elena had.  They find the two girls from the beginning of the episode sitting on the couch.  They are obviously dead and there is blood all over the place.  Damon tells Alaric this is definitely Stefan's handiwork.  Stefan was known as "The Ripper" and would feed so hard he would black out and rip his victims' bodies apart.  Afterwards he would feel bad about it and put them back together.  Damon nudges one of the girls knees with his foot and her head rolls off her shoulders and plops on to the floor.

While Tyler, Caroline and Elena prepare for the party, they discuss the kiss that Damon and Elena shared.  Elena says she only did it because he was dying at the time.
Elena leaves to make a phone call and Tyler and Caroline get into a conversation where they both reveal that due to their vampire and werewolf thangs they are constantly in the mood and always sexually frustrated. 

Tyler is bringing a date to the party later to hopefully quench some of his desire.
Damon cleans up the mess that Klaus and Stefan left by slinging gasoline around and torching the house. 

Before they leave he discovers a hidden floor hatch that leads down into a basement that has shackles on the wall.  Damon recognizes it as a werewolf holding cell.

At Southern Comfort Stefan is using Ray for dart practice with wolfsbane tipped darts.  Ray still refuses to give up the location of his pack.

Klaus gets a tip from a waitress that Damon is onto him and Stefan convinces Klaus to let him handle Damon.

Before Elena's party Damon gives her the necklace that she thought she had lost forever.  Elena and Damon go downstairs and Elena sees that the party is huge, which she isn't happy about, but decides to just drink up.
Jeremy and Matt share a joint and Jeremy tells Matt that he's been seeing things since Bonnie brought him back from the dead, although he doesn't tell him what he has been seeing.
Andie, who is supposed to meet up with Damon at the party is trying to leave work when Stefan shows up, looking bloodthirsty.

At the party Tyler is dancing with his date, Sophie.  Caroline is bothered by this, although she doesn't come out and say it.  When she talks to Sophie for a moment she compels her and tells her to leave, making Tyler wonder what Caroline's problem is.

Elena finds notes Damon has been keeping in his closet from where he has been tracking Klaus.
Damon gets a text from Andie telling him to come get her.  When he gets there Stefan comes out of the shadows and tells Damon to quit looking for him.  To emphasize that he means business he discloses that he has Andie standing on a scaffold and has told her not to move.  While Damon watches, Stefan tells Andie she can move now.  Andie steps off the scaffolding and plummets to the ground, dying when she hits it.
Damon runs over to her, but she is already gone.

Back at the party Jeremy offers to drive Matt home.  While he is waiting for Matt to get in the car Vicki appears beside him in the passenger seat asking for help.  Then she is quickly gone again.  Jeremy also sees Anna standing in front of the car.  When Matt questions Jeremy about his behavior, Jeremy just suggests they walk instead of driving.

Inside, Caroline and Tyler have a heated exchange and Tyler tells Caroline if he shouldn't be dating anyone then she needs to tell him.  Instead of telling him, she shows him with a kiss.  They decide to leave the party together.

Damon has come back to the party and finds Elena in his room.  She asks him about the notes he has been keeping.  Damon says that it wasn't Klaus's victims he was tracking all this time, it was Stefan's.  He says now that Stefan has flipped his compassionate-vampire switch to off there is no going back, well at least not in Elena's lifetime.

In the early part of the morning Matt and Jeremy are eating icecream in the Gilbert's kitchen.  Jeremy tells Matt he's been seeing his sister.  Matt figures it's probably just because he misses her, because even though Mystic Falls is full of supernatural stuff, ghosts are just a little farfetched, dontcha think?

Klaus managed to get the information on the pack out of Ray, but instead of letting him go Klaus cuts his own wrist and forces Ray to drink his blood.  Then, he snaps Ray's neck.
Klaus lets Stefan know that he doesn't really believe him that he's willing to cut ties with his family.

Alaric decides to move out of the Gilbert's house, telling Elena she can do it on her own now.

Tyler and Caroline vent their sexual frustrations on each other in Tyler's bedroom.

Stefan goes out to the parking lot of the bar and calls Elena.  When she answers he doesn't speak, but she guesses it's him and tells him she loves him and he will be okay.

When doing the walk-of-shame out of Tyler's house, Caroline runs into Mrs. Lockwood.  When she turns her back Mrs. Lockwood pops her with a bunch of darts/syringes.
