Well well well. That was all kinds of amazing fun! Why can't every episode be that awesome. (And I say that even without Elijah!
The world might be ending today, y'all)
EvilAlaric is 10000x more badass and fun to watch than Klaus on his best [worst] day. I really hope he sticks around for next season because this is a bad guy I can root for! And let's face it, in the overall grand scheme he's right! The world would be so much better if they deleted all vamps. Except that then we wouldn't have a show and I'd never have hope for another 5 minute tease of Elijah on my screen. Matt Davis has confirmed once and for all that he has been utterly wasted in every episode [other than his Klaus possession] up to this point.
I liked the twist that he can't live forever but it's very amusing that yet another character NEEDS Elena to be safe. Ha!
Stefan was the runner up MVP this episode for that exchange with Klaus at the end. I dare say he looked a bit sad watching Klaus shrivel up, no?? Was I imagining that? Maybe there was some actual "brotherhood" to them in the 20s that his ripper self hasn't completely forgotten. Also when he told Klaus he and Damon are closer than ever, I awww'd. I don't exactly like them agreeing to leave town if she picks the other though because we all know she's going to pick Stefan if it comes down to it. Is it also bad of me that for a minute I wished Klaus would have killed her so these two could stop competing for her almighty love? I know, I know, not a show without her. Bah.
YAY! Caroline and Tyler made it through the episode and are all lovey dovey again. I was truly scared that Tyler wasn't going to make it once Klaus realized he was no longer sired. Whew!
I also liked Klaus acting like a spoiled child outside throwing random things in at them and Damon acting like a child in return with "missed me" Ha! Still, as fun as that was, the first person that compares it to Elijah and the most awesome of all awesome Elijah moments, of the coin toss through the window, will lose an eye!
So now I'm wondering if they will leave Klaus in the ocean or if it's just a tease and he'll manage his way back next week. I'll have to call BS if so.
Also this is a spoiler of sorts for next week so beware before you open!!
