In this episode, Elena is feeling on edge and figures it’s the perfect time to make a decision about someone else’s life, there’s no place in this story for someone who can chop a Hybrid’s head off with a meat cleaver, Stefan talks a lot but he has no plan, Tyler’s story needs to end as fast as it began, and Bonnie’s dreams brings some mystery to the season.
Rants: (1) What is the point of compelling Jeremy again? What are we going to get out of it this time that we didn’t before? What is Jeremy going to get out of it that he didn’t before? (2) Stefan is in the witch house like it’s just a place where anyone can hole up if they want to. This while the Tyler has the caves and the old property, and Caroline has the jail, and the Founding kids have all of these events that Bonnie can’t participate in because it’s theirs and theirs only.
