As you know, last week's episode ended with Stefan walking into Elena's bedroom with the window curtains blowing and Elena no where to be found.
Elena wakes up in a hotel room with the hot but meanie Ben. She tries to escape but once she gets the doorknob lock unlocked he is behind her. He tries to compel her to step away from the door but Elena is wearing vervain. She tricks him for a minute and once she gets the door open, Anna is infront of the door. Elena steps back from Anna and after Anna's verbal hits to Ben, he throws Elena into the hotel bathroom. Elena sees Boonie in the bathtub and wakes her up with cold water. Once she is awake, Elena tells her that Ben only wanted her to open the tomb but she counters back by saying she will not go out like a punk. Ben comes into the bathroom and tells Bonnie that it's leverage to see Elena there to get her to open the tomb...oh, and that she shouldn't be so desperate. Jerk. Ben tells Elena that Anna wants to see her, Anna tells her that she wants to make a deal with Damon and Stefan to help work together to get the tomb open, or she will kill Elena.
Meanwhile, Stefan tells Damon that Elena's gone. After a slow convo, Damon sayd he jopes Elena will die. I don't believe it one bit Damon!
Jeremey overhears Tyler and Matt talk about a party a guy named Duke is throwing. When Jeremy opens his mouth, Tyler tells him to butt out. Caroline enters the Grill and gives a speech (she does that a lot in this episode, which ticks me off) to Matt about an "escape clause" because she doesn't want to get hurt by him, he declines it.
Then Damon is being such a big jerk when he goes to Gram's and asks to speak with Bonnie. When she declines, he gets arrogant and tells her to step outside and say that. She gets her mojo on and makes him drop to his knees in agony, she then steps out and tells him off before closing the door. You go, Grams!
Anna's New Plan
Anna reveals to Elena that her mother, Pearl, is stuck in the tomb as well. She then calls Stefan on Elena's phone where she makes demands to meet in the town's square to talk business. At the Salvatores, Damon taunts Stefan by claiming he doesn't care. Back at the hotel room, Anna leaves and tells Ben to watch his charges this time. Ben, being an idiot, underestimates the girls again. Bonnie tries another escape attempt that involves water, which she douses Ben with and sets him on fire. The girls make a run for it, but Ben recovers fast enough to grab Elena, forcing Bonnie back into the hotel room. While walking to the rendezvous point, Anna runs into Jeremy who reveals that he wants to take her to the party. This throws Anna off, but the party location which changes her mind. Right near the entrance of the tomb beside Old Fell's Church. After Jeremy leaves, Damon shows up beside Anna and the two talk business. Anna claims that she will kill Elena if she doesn't get what she wants. She tells Damon the time and the place of for the opening and leaves. At the hotel, Ben runs his mouth some more when Stefan bursts in and saves the girls. Ben cowers from the sunlight before Stefan, who tells the fresh fledgling that he better hit the road or its curtains for his short life as a vampire.The trio heads to Grams, who bonds with her granddaughter before they make plans. Stefan wants Grams and Bonnie to stay home, but Grams says forget that, she wants in on the action. Elena feels that they should help Damon to help stop the madness. Grams chimes in that she will open the tomb, but they will have to burn the place after Damon gets Katherine out. Stefan doesn't think Damon will fall for the ruse again, but Elena says that Damon is only hurt and that she has a plan. Meanwhile, Anna returns to find Ben, idiot, with Elena and Bonnie gone and comes up with another plan. Elena finds Damon and tries to reason with him on the level of protection for those they love. Damon declares a "fool me once" motif, which Elena claims that the two of them have an understanding, especially after their trip to Atlanta where Damon didn't compel her. She promises that she will help him get Katherine back, but Damon doesn't believe her. Elena then takes off her vervain necklace to prove her promise. Damon sees this and accepts her plan, revealing that he didn't compel her because she was having fun and that he wanted that to be real. Am I sensing supressed love? I think I am!
Back at the Bennetts, Gram stumbles, which worries Bonnie. But Grams says she's fine. Not good. Elena talks to Jeremy at home to see if he remembered anything, which he says he doesn't. Elena leaves him for Bonnie's, but it turns out that Jeremy did remember everything since he immediately starts his search for vampires on the Internet. Why can't the boy let it go? Anna brings Pearl back to the hotel room where Damon waits, pissed. He immediately lights into Anna for knowing the entire time that Katherine wasn't in the tomb and grabs Pearl by the neck, asking her why does she get happiness in the end and he doesn't. But Pearl reveals that Katherine, a woman we all hate now, had all of the men in town under her spell. One of those men was a guard, who wanted Katherine to turn him in order for her escape. He let her go. Say what! Then to drive the stake home, Anna adds that the last time she saw Katherine was in Chicago in 1983 and that Katherine knew Damon's whereabouts the entire time. She just didn't care to call him up for a run on the town. Katherine really sucks right now. After this revelation, Damon can't do anything, but walk out the hotel room in stunned shock. It'll be okay, Damon! Elena calls Stefan to say she made it to Bonnie's okay, but she asks if Damon is okay. Stefan says he will call her back as he goes and sits with his brother in silence. Brotherly moment! Good job, Stef!
Did you really think this is the ending?! Well, it's not!
Bonnie enters Grams' room to say goodnight and to tuck her in, but she finds Grams is not breathing!!!!! She screams (and me along with my other Vampire Diaries fan friends gasp!) and Elena comes running, but there is nothing she can do but call the medics. Bonnie, sobbing profusely, screams for Grams to wake up while looking through the spell book to "fix this". (While we sit and tell ourselves we won't cry!) But we all know it's too late. Grams, we love you, girl!
Oh and the last scene of this chapter involves the vampires in the tomb awakening to the busted blood pack and opening the tomb, which is no longer sealed. And their hungry…
Um, awesome! This week's episode was awesome! Even though I had to turn back and forth between this and the first episode of Survivor. Go Heroes! Sadly, we have to wait to see a new episode of VD and see if Damon and Elena get their mack on! Dang!
So, tell me what you thought and your reactions. Also, tell me what you expect on March 25th's episode!
