Vampire Diaries Episode 17 “Let the Right One In”: Synopsis

4 years ago, by

Hello beautiful

Danger, peril, and a horrific discovery mark the seventeenth episode of The Vampire Diaries. Watch at your own risk…

STEFAN IS FORCED TO MAKE A FRIGHTENING DECISION – When Stefan and Damon make a dangerous new enemy, Stefan suddenly finds himself in a perilous situation. Damon and Elena try to convince Alaric to work with them to help Stefan. Matt is hopeful that his mom, Kelly, may be back to stay. After her car breaks down in a storm, Caroline makes a horrific discovery that shocks everyone in town.

Alaric, working with Damon? I’ll believe that when I see it. And any ideas on what exactly Caroline will discover?

Also, we’ve heard that the title for Episode 18 is ‘Under Control’, and it’s the first one with David Anders (as Elena’s uncle). More to come!

    umm. I just heard the phone message cause I didnt call it first time round, but at the end of it it paul says ‘eventually the storm hits and it all catches up to you’ then in the episode 17 promo there is a storm and elena actually says it. << probably meaningless. i just had a random thought

    I really want caroline to find katherine.. it would make it more interesting but then i think maybe its viki because it affects the whole town.

    as for the title i think its a bit of a coincidence and the fact it says let the right one in. who else could it be but elena and katherine.

    Ok, first off, no way is Caroline going to find Katherine. What like Katherine is just sitting out in the woods waiting for someone to discover her!? She is way too smart to just be foundout like that. Besides they said the discovery will shock the town, and the rest of the town doesn’t even know who katherine is much less give a hoot. It is much more likely that Caroline will find Vicki’s body. That would also explain why in the following episode it says Elena trys to comfort Jeremy.

    Actually I don’t think Katherine is going to show up in this episode at all. They will probably save her till the end of the season. In the preview, Damon goes to the farm house looking for Stefan and the mean avmpire guy says “sorry, you weren’t invited in” as in he can’t get in to save Stefan. I think it has more to do with that. I think the decision Stefan is going to have to make is feeding on a human or die. Also, in the following episode they talk about Stefan having to ‘control his new situation’. What else would he have to control other than his newly rediscovered hunger for humans.

    Finally, no I don’t thing they are going to turn Elena in the first season. I mean really, It’s a little soon for that, don’t ya think?

    Just my thoughts. :)

    a) ok there is no way caroline is finding vicki. i mean, i think a corpse would have decayed since halloween. come onnn. instead, i predict she will find out that tyler is a WEREWOLF!!! in an earlier episode, jeremy tries to talk to him and tyler’s all weird. and there’s a shot of the full moon…. intentional? i think so.
    b) alaric is needed to help out b/c of his ring, that’s a given.

    i’m uber excited for thursdayy!!! :)

    Ok, Laura, I appreciate the passion, but you gotta let the books go! I have read them all, and what have they stuck to in the show so far? The names of characters, and the GENERAL plot umbrella of two vampire brothers who like the same girl. They have totally changed almost everything else like back stories, some of character’s personalities, family lines, and so on. Don’t get me wrong, I love the show and am fine with the changes, but you need to stop waiting for the show to mimic the books, cuz I think you will be dissapointed.

    So guys i think Caroline will find Vicki´s Body or she discovers that the vampires in general are back . A lot of people knew about them but if a Teenie find them or see some of them killing a human that would shock the hole town , wouldn´t it?

    Maybe Caroline founds some human Bodys which need the Vampires to acclimatize ( what Pearl called it) – this would also be shocking.

    I even think Kathrin will not appear before episode 20 because it must be thrilling.

    Hmmm…. Is it possible for Elena to pretend to be Katherine and the other vamps in that house not be able to tell? Maybe they’d all be too intimidated to even think about challenging her. I wonder if “Let the right one in” is meaning Elena pretends to be Katherine to get into the house? In the promo I think she is shown in the house… but maybe she just sneeks in through a window cuz she doesn’t need to be invited in…. I think the Alaric idea is great! It makes sence that he would be able to safely get into the house and help Stefen without being harmed! BUT there has to be a limit the ring can fix…

    The ring also confuses me a bit. Why in the episode when Alaric and Jenna met at the bar did he stare at the boundry of her door awkwardly if he didn’t need an invite to get in? Could he possibly be fooling everyone and actually be a vampire and no one know? No one knew that bartender was a vamp!

    Oh common, Caroline can’t find out about the vamps. They wouldn’t let her live and it shocks everyone in town so she ain’t dead..

    The books is totally diffrent from the show, in the books Elena is kinda bitchie( but nice, thought) in the show she’s like goody-goody in all spots. Katherine is like sweet innocent childish like in the two first books.. Stefan won’t forget Katherine(or he does, but not for à while) and then there is Damon who only want Elena, not even Katherine- he thought she was to weak and child like while he wanted to make Elena a queen of darkness.
