Vampire Diaries Episode 18 “Under Control”: Synopsis

4 years ago, by

March 31, 2010

Sark, otherwise known as Mr. John Gilbert

Stefan parties. Alaric and Elena bond over their dead wife and mother, respectively. Damon’s involved with something ugly. But all that really matters is that Sark is the new bad guy in Mystic Falls.

DAVID ANDERS (“24”) GUEST STARS AS ELENA’S UNCLE JOHN GILBERT — While Stefan struggles to control his new situation, Elena and Jeremy are surprised by a visit from their uncle, John Gilbert. Alaric has an awkward talk with Elena about Isobel. At a Founder’s Day event, Stefan displays a rare party attitude and Damon’s attempt to find out why Uncle John has returned to town takes an ugly turn. An incident at the party causes trouble between Matt and Tyler, and the relationship between Matt and his mother, Kelly, reaches a new low. Meanwhile, Elena’s effort to comfort Jeremy falls short and he decides to take matters into his own hands.

So Tyler’s back. Too bad I never missed him. In other news, why is Elena comforting Jeremy, and how exactly does he take matters into his own hands? That sounds dangerous.Also under the ‘danger’ category is Stefan partying. Now that’s so bad… it’s good.

    In the preview the Tyler punched Matt. A lot of people think that was Stefan but it wasn’t. I’m still in question to find out who Damon threw over the ledge at the party. Can’t wait until next week. Last weeks was awesome and I would really like to see how Stefan handles his hunger problem.

    It’s pretty obvious they will make Tyler a werewolf. One of the people working with the storyline/directing said that, “where there are vampires, there are werewolves.”

    Matt and Tyler will probably fight over something to do with Vicki.

    Jeremy will try to hunt down Stefan or Damon for handling Vicki – maybe?

    That’s all the speculating for now!

    So tyler is a werewolf….. no surprise if you’ve read the books. I think that Matt says something to tyler about vicki that sets him off and they end up fighting.

    I am so so so worried about stefan! I really hope he can control himself (maybe thats why the episode is called under control…), so he doesn’t lose elena! maybe he has to leave for a while and thats why elena and damon are dancing in the next episode (miss mystic falls)…. I really hope he can get a grip.

    UNCLE JON KNOWS ABOUT VAMPIRES! no doubt about it. i sense confrontation between him and damon and stefan that doesn’t go so well.

    Did Elena tell jeremy that she was adopted yet? in the promo he says, “is there something you’re not telling me?” it could possibly be that, or that elena knows about vampires… Can’t wait to find out!
    any thoughts??

    John Gilbert is the same naes as the man that put all the vampires in the tomb! But he looks different.
    And my last name is Gilbert, same as Elena and Jeremy!
    My real dads name is Paul, Stefans real name is Paul!
    My step dads name is Ian, Damons real name is Ian!
    How strange is that.

    I love the way the TV Show doesn’t follow the books exactly, there are lots of surprises. I really want Jeremy to fall in love with Anna and then get turned and I want Elena to get turned as well. It would be awesome if Elena’s birth mom turned up with Katheryne as well! I really want to see how Stefan deals with his “Human Blood” problem!!! I think John Gilbert is either a Vampire or associating with Katheryne or Isobel. It’d be nice to see what the directors make of that!! x
