While Elena struggles with the fact that she locked her boyfriend in a dungeon to starve, Damon tells her the story of how they were turned. And, of course, Team Damon gets lots of delicious Damon/Elena moments, but Team Stefan can rest assured in Elena’s seemingly unwavering devotion.
Everyone deals with Isobel. Elena turns to Stefan for comfort after meeting her vampire mother. Alaric looks on with furrowed brow. Damon unbuttons his shirt. And in a completely different storyline, Uncle John and Jeremy spend some time together talking about who knows what, knowing Jeremy.
Elena finally meets her mother, but Isobel doesn’t seem worthy of her lovely daughter. Luckily, Elena has plenty of friends to help her deal. Isobel, on the other hand, has plenty of enemies.
Here we have… lots of photos of Stefan and Damon staring at each other, both in Mystic Falls and Flashback Falls. There’s one of Emily Bennett staring into space, and a token few of Damon and Elena smoldering at each other. We’ll take what we can get.
Flashback Falls returns to show us how Damon and Stefan become the hottest vampires around. Alaric and Damon solidify their shaky alliance as they take on a mutual enemy, Uncle John. And Anna and Jeremy may or may not take their relationship farther, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
Elena and Caroline’s bright beauty pageant gowns contrast starkly against the dark coats thrown on in the dark woods. There’s a deeper meaning in there somewhere, but who cares when Stefan’s going nuts in the woods with Amber and Damon’s got Elena in his arms?
Not only is Miss Mystic Falls a perfect opportunity for Damon and Elena to demonstrate their sparky chemistry, it’s the perfect opportunity for Stefan to rip out Amber’s throat. Anyone else think he’ll be single soon?
A regular on our favorite vampire show is set to bite the dust, and the list of potentials has been narrowed down.
Damon’s making Elena cranky, and Matt warns Caroline to drive safe. You know what that means: this week’s episode is going to showcase a redeeming quality of Damon’s, and Caroline’s going to get in an accident. In other news, creepy Frederick is in possession of one Stefan Salvatore.
Although Elena doth not appear to be the beauty pageant type, she competes in Miss Mystic Falls with Caroline and two other gals who, no doubt, are evil, and not in the usual beauty pageant way.
