The wolf pack makes their move this week, trying to get their hands on Elena. They kill Alaric (they think) and take Damon hostage and try torturing him to find the moon stone. Meanwhile, they send only 1 wolf to retrieve Elena from the lake house. Seriously? Only 1? Sure they sent Tyler with him but once again Tyler jumps sides and the werewolf pack is down another member. Elijah once again comes to Damon’s rescue, killing the entire wolf pack except Jules who runs for her life. Bonnie, with help from Caroline and Jeremy, uses a little magic on Luca and discovers some disturbing facts about the deal with Elijah. We learn that Luca and his dad are trying to rescue his sister, who is being held by the big grand-daddy of them all, Klaus. Uncle John causes more trouble this week; planting seeds in Jenna’s mind that maybe Alaric isn’t tell her everything.
A good episode, firming up guesses we were already making. Under Elijah’s deal, Elena’s friends and family will be protected but ultimately Elena will still die to break the curse. The only wolfs left after the dust settles are Jules and Tyler who leave town in a hurry. I’m sure this isn’t the last we have heard of them. As far as aunt Jenna goes, I’m surprised that they have kept her in the dark this long. Seriously, is the woman completely oblivious to what is going on around her???
