The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Episode 3 led us to a new kind of creature, werewolves.
Katherine finds it easy to get inside Stefan’s head and make him have nightmares.
Mason tells Tyler that ignorance is bliss. He’s better off not knowing how to trigger the family curse.
Back to Katherine and Stefan. He pretends he still cares about her. Rather than kissing her however, he jabs her with a needle. He’s over you, dude, move on with your life. He’s not in love with her any more, regardless of what happened during the Civil War, and regardless of the fact that he’s sought a woman who looks exactly like her. Whatever feelings he had back then, they’ve all turned to hate. Love, hate, what’s the difference? She knew all about the plan to burn the vampires, her family, her friends, but she didn’t care. Rather, she initiated the plan and practically lit the match, just to fake her own death.
Caroline says that Stefan hates that Elena’s a constant temptation. The desire to rip out her jugular every time he’s with her, yeah, that’s there. That’s why she broke up with Matt. It’s Caroline’s quest to make sure these two break up, but only to protect Elena, of course.
Damon doesn’t like Mason, not that that’s something unusual. This is the guy who tried to kill his brother. In Mason’s defense, he says that was a mistake. He was confused, and couldn’t chain himself up in time. He’s there for his family because his brother the mayor died, and says he wants to be above this little spat they’re having. That hand shake and resulting truce lasts about 5 minutes. Damon stabs him, but that doesn’t work. Now they’re enemies. Apparently, Mason has not been paying attention. They’ve already been enemies.
Katherine threatens Stefan to stay away from Elena. If he refuses, she will kill everyone she loves while she watches, then she will kill her while he watches. There’s a simple solution here. Just kill Katherine. Ah, but there’s a catch. She’s been sipping vervain every day for 145 years, and it doesn’t bother her. She’s just faking. After Katherine gets done stabbing Stefan, she walks outside to find and meet Elena, who was worried that something happened to Stefan. This chance encounter is short lived.
The reason why Caroline wants Elena and Stefan to break up? She’s working for Katherine. That said, she doesn’t want to kill Elena, which is a bummer.
What triggers the Lockwood family curse? Human blood. Take another person’s life, and the curse is yours forever.
Elena and Stefan meet for a chat. Conveniently, Caroline is there listening to them, hanging on to every word. This is not a fact that is lost on either of them as they stage their fight.
Whatever Stefan may think about her being incapable of love, she’s been hanging on to the memories for 150 years.
