‘The Vampire Diaries’ Recap: The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead

It’s the penultimate episode of The Vampire Diaries, season 4!!!! (“Who says ‘penultimate’?” I know. Sorry) There’s a lot going on in Mystic Falls and I know that we’re waiting on a lot of answers before next week’s Graduation. Will Bonnie drop the veil? Will Elena get her revenge? Will Klaus & Elijah return to the Grill, one last time? And, most importantly, will Matt get the passing grades he needs?

  • AWOLNation’s “Sail” is an incredible jam. It goes nicely with Elena’s rage. 
  • Why exactly does Stefan want to get Elena off of the “kill Katherine” path. Just worry? Do you think maybe he could get another project at some point?
  • So the veil will only be dropped within the expression triangle? What does that mean? Will the OTHERS be trapped inside of that space?
  • “I have no idea what that means.” For once, Sheriff Forbes’ cluelessness isn’t just funny. It’s really helpful.
  • I like this Rebekah. The one who is a part of the group. The one who has a big ol’ crush on Matt. The one trying to be less of a bitch. Don’t get me wrong, I love bitches. But this one is fun, too. Sweet.
  • Poor Caroline. She’s so worried about Elena’s true feelings. I kinda think she used her emotionless state to tell truths she never had the balls to tell before. She’s kind of a mean girl.
  • Husband: “Can’t vampires see in the dark?” He has a point. Why do Stefan & Caroline need a flashlight? Is Maglite a sponser?
  • “Every season the rocks get bigger.” My husband is full of his usual TVD love tonight.
  • ALARIC!!! AAAAHHH!!! Did we know we were going to see his magnificent face? And he’s back with his BEST FRIEND!!! Tears. Also, how much booze did he have stashed at school?
  • (BTW, hope you all got to see the commercial for The Originals. That title card is SLAMMIN. So rad. I am very excited.)
  • “This wind is weird.” Oh Matt. You’re adorable.
  • KOL! I don’t care. He better not hurt Matt.
  • Hahaha!! Bonnie has Katherine on a leash.
  • OH NO!! The link is more than a leash. It’s like the Katherine/Elena thing from season 2!! And now Bonnie has an ouchie.
  • Stefan to the rescue!! “Really? I’m your biggest problem right now?” Katherine is fabulous.
  • How darling and heartbreaking is it that Matt won’t accept Rebekah’s blood? He really wants to cling to that last human standing, thing he has going on. He’s so precious.
  • I cannot believe they actually showed Caroline cutting her wrists. BRUTAL. Which means…
  • It’s actually Silas who’s with Bonnie. That guy is so creepy. But why, if you could wear any face, would you choose that gross one? Eww. And I’m sure it has been said before, but he totally reminds me of The First from Buffy’s last season.
  • ELENA IS JEALOUS!! Hahahahahaha!!!! Love it.
  • Stefan will never give up, will he? He will love her and worry about her and try to help her for the rest of his life. It’s both very sad and very lovely.
  • “Stefan? Isn’t she your girlfriend?” “Who knows?” Not me, Damon. Not me.
  • “Look, Caroline. You’re graduating. And Uncle Bob and Aunt Mary really want you to graduate with both your hands.” I am sorry. I cannot stop laughing. Because I am SURE it’s something Uncle Bob & Aunt Mary have worried about, extensively.
  • Aaaaaaand here come the water works. I think maybe Elena should be helping with the whole end of the world shimsham goin down, but this is important, too. And heart crushing. She never got to say goodbye.
  • GRAMS!!! She must be back to make me cry more because that is what she is best at.
  • So, Bonnie can do anything? ANYTHING? Hook me up with a winning lotto ticket, girl!!
  • Does Alaric hold the record for most times dying on TVD? He must. Either as himself or someone else. It is a lot of times.
  • JEREMY SAVES THE DAY!!! So great to see that kid.
  • Stefan is in all the right places, lately. Saving AND making jokes. Heart that guy so much.
  • Bonnie did good work. Kinda stoked about her at the moment.
  • “Welcome back.” Why do those two words make me cry so much? I mean, the other Elena was kind of awful. And it is nice to see her look at Stefan that way. To see Stefan look that way at her.
  • LEXI!!! LEXI!!! LEXI!!! Full on hysterical sobbing now, FYI. His bestie came for him. And she thanked Caroline. And I love her. LOVE HER.
  • EVERYONE IS WITH THEIR PERSON!!!! And it’s too amazing for words. They all needed this. Not just Elena. Only, where is Jenna?
  • Damon has the cure. What will he do with it? Doesn’t he want Elena to stay a vampire? I can’t remember. Too hard to keep track.
  • Whoa. Lots of hunters. That seems not great.
  • DID BONNIE FREAKING DIE? WHAT IN THE HELL??? RIGHT WHEN SHE GETS COOL?? WHAT?? NO! That can’t be what happened. Who will put the veil back up?

Holy cow. This episode didn’t really move at the breakneck speed I was anticipating but that doesn’t mean that it was slow by any means. A lot happened withing that 42 minutes and it will be interesting to see what becomes of all the new stuff in the season finale. Also, how will they kick start season 5? Is Bonnie really dead? Is it too much to ask Klaus to give Caroline a proper goodbye? Will the veil ever go back up? I kinda hope it stays down for a while longer. I love to see (most of) those old familiar faces. What do you guys think? Are you ready for the last minutes of season 4?
