  • Damon and Stefan partied like it was 1912.
  • Sage beat grown men to a pulp.
  • Rebekah needs to learn the word “stealth.”
  • Elena and Matt pretended to be the Hardy Boys.
  • Damon tried teach Stefan the meaning of the word “moderation.”
  • Alaric discovered he really is a crazy, knife-wielding murderer. And possibly possessed by a ghost. 

If you know me well you know how much I love classic rock. Especially anything from the 1960’s and 1970’s. So of course when I learned the episode title for tonight’s episode was “Break on Though” I immediately thought of The Doors. One of the things I love most about The Vampire Diaries is how their titles are after horror films, classic rock songs, or great literature. It’s like an Easter egg for all the geek fans. So this week I thought I’d dissect the show based on the lyrics of the song of the same name.

You know the day destroys the night

Night divides the day

Tried to run

Tried to hide

Break on through to the other side

Break on through to the other side

Break on through to the other side, yeah

Elena and Meredith took Alaric to the hospital to get him check out, and to make sure that nothing is medically wrong with him. It doesn’t take long for us to see by Alaric’s reflection in the mirror that the man is possessed. Alaric has always been an enigma. We don’t know much about him except he is someone who appears to be trustworthy. What Elena (and Stefan) discovers is that whatever is happening to Alaric has been happening a long time.

While Elena is looking for Alaric’s wedding ring so Bonnie can do a spell to save him back at Alaric’s loft, Meredith almost meets her maker. In a classic horror movie move, Meredith runs up the stairs to escape a knife-wielding Alaric instead of out the door. A Kevin Williamson production! *tsk, tsk* Luckily, Meredith learned to secure herself, and find something stabby when being chased by a maniac.  Sadly, she had already been nearly gutted.
