After their one week thanksgiving break, The Vampire Diaries are back with their anticipated episode. It’s official, Stefan and Elena broke up, which looks like Damon will get the chance he always wanted. They broke up because Elena’s feelings for Damon intensified since becoming a vampire and she seems to love him more.
It’s also the annual Miss Mystic Falls pageant and Caroline is in charge, as usual. Klaus was promised a date, so he will be escorting her for the day. Tyler brings his friend Hayley, which seems to make Caroline jealous, but she doesn’t say anything. Hayley is also helping hybrids break their bond with Klaus so they can make their own choices and not be bossed around.
Jeremy is the new vampire hunter, but ever since he killed the hybrid, he seems to be changing. He has these nightmares of killing Elena, his own sister, but he can’t fight the urge. At the pageant, he gets Elena alone and stabs her! Stefan is there right away and saves her, but if he wasn’t there Jeremy may have killed her. Matt described Jeremy’s change as his subconscious pushing through until his urges become instinct. This is dangerous for Elena, so she moves out and goes to Damon and Stefan’s house.
Damon is on the mission to find a new vampire hunter so that Jeremy doesn’t have to be involved anymore. He goes to Shane, who seems to be everywhere in Mystic Falls and asks him for help. Shane, at first, won’t help him until Damon reveals himself as a vampire. Shane says that in order to get the map that leads to the cure for the vampires, you need a witch, and particularly a Bennet witch, Bonnie. Shane is helping Bonnie get her powers back, which makes him more valuable alive than dead. Damon leaves him alone because he needs his help to get Elena her cure.
The dramatic twists in this episode happened at the end. It seems Hayley and Shane are working together…why? There is also the theory that Elena is so drawn to Damon because she is somehow sired to him! She drank from him to become a vampire so is this bond making her fall for him over Stefan? The episode ends with Damon and Elena getting hot and steamy at his house, seemingly head over heels for each other. Watch it on Thursday to catch all the action!
