Tonight’s episode of The Vampire Diaries had everyone spending time with people they normally wouldn’t hang around. Damon accompanied Bonnie and Elena to the university so Bonnie could talk to the man who took over Gram’s class. This was also a great opportunity for Damon to Obi Wan Elena, and teach her how to feed properly like a real vampire.
“I don’t care about the Five, and I don’t care about you.”
Klaus has Connor detained in the Mikaelson torture room because he’s looking for a weapon. Since Damon left Stefan in town to figure out what Klaus was up to when he decided to save Connor’s life, Stefan does just that. Of course, this meant we got flashbacks as Klaus told Stefan the story of the Five.
Back in the 12th century, Klaus and his siblings were living in Italy when Rebekah fell in love with a vampire hunter who turned out to be one of the Five. He told her about his tattoo (the one like Connor’s), and that it was a map that led to a treasure. That of a cure for vampirism. He also told her the key to deciphering the map was the special sword he carried. Even though the dude revealed all of this, and the fact he had a special dagger that killed a special kind of vampire (Originals), she fell right into his trap. This just shows how tragic Rebekah’s love life has always been. As Klaus told Stefan, “She sure knows how to pick ’em.” (More…)
