After last week’s disappointing episode I was hoping the writers would make it up to me, and boy did they ever. “Murder of One” reminded me of why I fell in love with The Vampire Diaries two seasons ago. There were a few moments for the shippers. Some blood, carnage, and death. Not only did every character have a purpose, but they all had a chance to shine at least once during the episode. This is how you effectively use an ensemble cast! Not only was I on the edge of my seat, but I was actually surprise a couple times. Now that my praise is out of the way, let’s get this show on the road!
“His morals get pretty questionable when he has revenge on the brain.”
Ever since Damon unveiled the White Oak Wickery Bridge Sign last week, Stefan has renewed his Operation: Kill Klaus gusto. The boys decide that tonight’s the night, and they need everyone armed and ready. Including the Mystic Falls Slasher, or as I like to call him Alaric. One catch, Alaric wants to turn himself in for murder, but Stefan isn’t having it. Who hasn’t killed someone in that town?
The boys fill in Caroline, Matt, and Elena on the plan, and everyone seems ready to rumble. Except Bonnie who is MIA. The mission is easy: Everyone has a concealed stake, Klaus needs to be kept away from Rebekah, and Becca (or Buffy the Vampire as Caroline calls her) will have the honor of biting the big one by whoever gets the shot. Simple right? WRONG!
