What a sad episode! For the first time ever on the Vampire Diaries, I think I actually may have welled up. I think that was more due to the Leona Lewis remake of the Snow Patrol song, Run at the end, but it was still an emotional episode with Bonnie’s grandmother dying after the tomb spell. She was an awesome character.
I felt SO sad for Damon when he couldn’t find Katherine, and especially when Ana told him that the last time she saw Katherine was in Chicago in 1983, and she knew where Damon was but never looked for him. Says a lot about Katherine, doesn’t it? I have a feeling that Damon is going to lose it when the Vampire Diaries returns…as in ‘hell-hath-no-fury-like-a-vampire-scorned’ losing it.
I loved the part when Elena hugs Damon and said that she was sorry after he couldn’t find her in the tomb. I think he really needed that. I also liked when Ana found her mother and they were reunited in the end. That was awesome. I also liked Jeremy’s and Ana’s relationship in this episode. I really don’t want that to end because he actually looked happy for once. And so did Ana. I wanted to see more of that.
And for once, despite the overall sadness, Stefan had all the cool lines in this episode (instead of Damon):-
Tom Cruise’s Doppelganger-Vampire: Is that all you got?
Stefan: No, I got this (and barbecues him with a flame-thrower).
It would have been cool in the end if they showed a snapshot of Katherine partying it up in some other town instead of the vamps getting out of the tomb. That just felt predictable – I knew it was going to happen the minute Damon smashed the blood against the wall. Would have been nice to get a glimpse of Katherine since she was the main driver of practically every episode up to this point.
Great ending episode!
