I really liked this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries. I’m not sure if it’s because Katherine and Elijah, my two favorite characters, were in the episode or what, but “American Gothic” was a lot better than the previous episode. Not only did we get to see the majority of the characters actively doing something to help move the main story along, but we also learned a few new things in the process.
We left off with Rebekah and Elena breaking Damon’s neck, stealing his lead on Katherine, and his car. The two vixens ended up driving the car until it ran out of gas, and then stealing another car before they wind up in Pennsylvania. The stop was really just a pit stop so Elena could stretch her legs and grab a bite to eat, but the ladies discover they have accidentally stumbled upon Katherine’s hideout. I guess this town wasn’t on Damon’s list. Clever little minx! Of course once the girls realize Katherine has compelled the entire town not to talk about her to anyone but herself, it’s only a matter of time before the dynamic duo locate the doppelgänger. After a bit of coercion, the girls manage to find out that Katherine had plans to meet someone, E.M., who turned out to be Elijah. (More…)
