Is it just me or was that really really good???? I just have to completely divorce the books from the TV show and I say it's awesome! :)
So Elena is a smart cookie. She's figured out not everything is on the up and up with Stefan...normal people don't usually live for that many years without aging. So she confronts him. And she says, "I know what you are." And he says, "Say it." JUST KIDDING! He tells her he's a vampire and like a smart girl she runs!!! And he follows...sort of in a vampirey way. He says he won't hurt her, but she's not really listening.
Damon is off drinking all sorts of human blood but there's one human he wants to have a little fun with...Vicki. But he has a little problem...Stefan still has his super magical ring that protects him from the evil sun. So he asks for the ring, but Stefan's trying to hold on to what little power he has.
Elena goes off with Stefan and agrees to give him a day to explain things. He shares the history of Katherine...a beautiful and manipulative woman who played with hearts of our two favorite vampire boys. Was it not wonderful to see Stefan and Damon actually....friends?
The town is getting suspicious that there are vamps back in town and we know that's not going to mean good things.
Damon has allowed Vicki to drink his blood but she's not yet a vampire. So he kills her...which gives her the opportunity to either drink blood and become a full vampire or...die.
Unfortunately, Stefan tries to warn her about what's to come and in the process a member of the town...who is hunting the vampires shoots Stefan with a wooden bullet. Damon comes to the rescue in blazing hotness and rips the bullet out of Stefan's chest killing the guy who was trying to kill Stefan. But leaving enough blood for Vicki to drink....and her choice is made.
And so is Elena's...she calls things off with Stefan.
Great episode..the show is really developing its mythology and most importantly I'm continuing to enjoy my vampire brothers.
