The Vampire Diaries April 26 Episode Recap: Alaric’s Fate is Revealed!

Elena gave Stefan a chance to catch up to Damon in the race for her heart.

The annual decades dance at Mystic Falls High School is the backdrop for the death of a longtime TVD friend and the birth of a creature that makes Klaus look like a lightweight in the newest episode of The Vampire Diaries “Do Not Go Gentle.” Esther reveals to Bad Ric her plan to turn him into a super vampire whose mission will be to destroy the Originals with the remaining stake, which she makes indestructible by enchanting the melted metal of Ric’s protection ring. She reclaims her body by having Ric dagger Rebekah’s, reversing the body-swap spell. Poor Becky’s gonna have even bigger mommy issues after this latest indignity. The only thing Esther needs to complete Ric’s transformation now is Elena’s blood so you know she’s going to be making an appearance at the dance. Caroline teases Elena about her makeout session with Daman during their roadtrip and convinces her to invite Stefan to the Roaring 20s dance since it should be his turn to romance Elena.

Klaus has bigger problems than Tyler now that Alaric's a super vampire-killing vampire.

Caroline may be firmly in Team Stelena’s camp, but she’s got her own love triangle to worry about. Tyler shows up at the dance decked out like a gangster and he and his blonde flapper make a cute couple on the dance floor, until Klaus cuts in and makes another play for Caroline’s heart. Hurt by her rejection, Klaus swears to her that she will never be satisfied with a small-town life with Tyler when she could have the world by his side. Caroline keeps mum about the fact that Klaus’s sire bond with Tyler has been broken to protect Tyler, but the look on her face reveals that Klaus may not be so off base in his statements as she would hope. Damon discovers that Ric hasn’t been taking the magical meds that Bonnie whipped up to keep his alter ego in check and alerts Dr. Fell. He clues in Stefan and Elena and suggests they kill Bad Ric to put Alaric out of his misery. Jeremy won’t stand for it. Esther shows up at the dance and whisks Elena away to “save” Ric, but the Salvatore brothers are unable to cross a line of salt that Esther has placed around the school to keep the vampires captive inside while she cooks up her latest dish of revenge. Elena refuses to contribute her blood for Esther’s cauldron so Esther just waves her hand and takes it. Bad Ric gulps down the concoction despite Elena’s pleas not to do it and Esther stabs him to initiate his vampire transition. Back at the high school, Klaus threatens Jamie in order to force Bonnie to break Esther’s binding spell but Esther’s power is peaking and the Bonster can’t weaken her resistance. Jeremy and Matt, meanwhile, surprise Esther armed with a rifle and crossbow but the powerful sorceress takes control of them. Just as she’s about to force them to kill each other, a rescusitated Ric stabs Esther from behind, releasing the vamps from Mystic Falls High. Klaus takes his treacherous mother’s body while the gang gathers to bid farewell to their noble friend Alaric, who has decided not to complete the vampire transition and die a dignified death as a mortal. Jeremy and Elena are heartbroken as is Bonnie, who is comforted by Jamie. Meredith gives Ric sedatives to ease his pain while Damon maintains vigil, giving his unlikely pal a last drink of booze in his final moments. But just as it appears that Alaric will go peacefully into the night, Esther’s spirit (who just won’t quit) summons Bonnie to go to him and feed him her blood, instantly completing his dreaded transformation into a bloodsucking, super-Original vampire hunter! Or something like that.

The Vampire Diaries May 3 Episode Preview: Before Sunset

 

Will Klaus succeed in skipping town with Elena?

It looks like the May 3 episode of The Vampire Diaries will have its share of OMG moments, as usual. The stakes are high for the Klauster as he plots to skip town with his favorite doppelganger, Elena, but an unexpected enemy offers resistance to the hybrid. Abby shows up to help Bonnie cast a super spell that requires Jeremy’s help, too. Could it involve reaching out to dead people? It sure looks like a major smackdown will take place judging from these pics. Also, Stefan and Damon have a major heart to heart about the future.

Bonnie looks great in her 30s get up.

How will Jeremy's gift figure in Bonnie's latest plans to protect Elena from Klaus?

Klaus and Stefan will face off yet again.

It looks like an all-out war will erupt.

 

The Vampire Diaries April 26 Sneak Peek video!

Alaric is gonna continue to get more screen time next week (Yay!) as this sneak peek footage from The CW shows. Looks like Ric is planning some time out of town after his run-in with Esther-as-Rebekah in the cave. Damon has a bad feeling about Alaric’s plan. I do, too. Is it really Bad Ric pretending to be Good Ric to lure Damon into a trap? Tune in next week, TVD fans!

The Vampire Diaries April 19 recap: Heart of Darkness

Image

April 19 – Several characters from the past made return appearances, a new allegiance was forged and Damon made some serious progress in his bid to win over Elena’s heart in the latest episode of TVD, “Heart of Darkness.” The Salvatores and Elena decide they need to get to Jeremy in Denver before Klaus now that Klaus has discovered his whereabouts. Stefan suggests that Elena and Damon will hit the road alone while he stays home to watch over Alaric and wait until his evil alter ego reemerges with the secret to the location of the dagger that can kill Klaus. Stefan thinks Elena needs some time alone to assess her feelings for his brother. Bad idea! When Damon and Elena find a studly Jeremy at a batting range, they explain to him that they need to trace the lineage of each Original vampire since killing an Original will destroy all the vamps he or she sired. Getting in touch with Rose, through Jeremy’s gift, is their next step. Naturally, danger follows Jeremy wherever he goes and a friend he’s expecting turns out to be Kol, who’s thirsting for a rematch with Damon. Damon manages to outmaneuver Kol and the three hide out at a local motel. Jeremy manages to conjure the spirit of Rose in her cute little shag haircut and she reveals that her sire was not Klaus but a woman named Mary Foster, whom Damon refers to as “Crazy Mary.” She also clues Jeremy in on the developing bond between his sister and Damon. Elena is touched to learn how Damon compelled the dying Rose to imagine herself spending a final day in the sun as a human rather than feel the pain of her impending death. Elena realizes that, although well hidden, Damon still has his humanity. This is very bad for Stefan, folks. We all know there’s nothing sexier than finding the soft side of a bad boy vampire. That night, a vigilant Damon watches over Elena, shirtless of course as his chiseled body shines in the moonlight. Damon is uncomfortable when Elena brings up his good deed for Rose, but reaches out to her, sensing that it’s brought them closer. Although torn, Elena can no longer fight her attraction to Damon and the two melt into a steamy embrace as they devour each other in passionate kisses! This ain’t no chaste “Twilight” scene, folks. Team Delena cheers. Team Stelena hisses. Our collective screams are interrupted by Jeremy, of course, with the news that Mary Foster is living in Kansas. When the trio arrive at her home, they discover it’s more like she’s dead in Kansas, staked by Kol, who beats Damon up but inexplicably doesn’t kill him. Afterward, Damon senses Elena pull away from his caress and discovers that she expects him to do something to ruin their new bond. Realizing their trip was a test of her feelings, Damon’s disappointed, hurt and tells her he won’t make it easy for her to choose Stefan over him. The choice between the Salvatores is one she will need to make on her own. As the trio head back home, Damon and Elena stew in uncomfortable silence while Jeremy gets another visit from Rose, who explains to him that Damon deserves his chance to win Elena because he challenges her in ways Stefan does not.

Back in Mystic Falls, Caroline and Rebekah clash over competing ’70s and ’30s themes for the upcoming decades dance (another excuse to put the cast in cute costumes I’m sure) and Matt sides with Becky.  What the Beckster doesn’t realize is that Matt and Caroline set up the argument to distract her while Caroline sets out to meet a returning Tyler.  When Matt drops Becky off at her home, she discovers her mom Esther there. Mother and daughter have a tense confrontation that ends with Esther collapsing. Klaus arrives and Becky tells him their mother is dead. Is she really? Tyler, randy as ever, has a vigorous naked reunion with his voluptuous vamp but is disturbed to learn that his life is on the line if his sire Klaus is offed. He’s even more upset to discover that Klaus is putting the moves on his gal and Caroline may not be totally immune to his attentions.  Alaric goads Stefan into beating the crap out of him to set loose his dark side and indeed, Bad Ric emerges and tells him that the stake with Klaus’ name on it is in the cave where vamps can’t enter. Trouble is that Klaus and Rebekah are in the living room and know it, too! Rebekah takes Bad Ric down to the cave to retrieve the dagger while Klaus and Stefan have a little chat. Klaus plays it all big and evil, trotting out the usual threats against Stefan and all those he holds dear, but Stefan sees right through his theatrics. He knows Klaus doesn’t really want to kill him and Klaus counters that it’s only a matter of time before The Ripper returns to his side. In the cave, Bad Ric decides he doesn’t want to return the dagger to his captors, but Becky does him one better by stepping into the cave! She’s actually Esther inhabiting Rebekah’s body and she wants to team up with Bad Ric to get rid of the Originals once and for all!

The Vampire Diaries April 19 Episode Sneak Peek Video: Elena & Alaric chat.

Howdy. It’s been ages since I’ve posted and, well, it’s been ages since we’ve had a fresh episode of TVD to get excited about. I practically forgot where we left off. Just kidding. The focus lately has been on poor Alaric’s split personality and this preview scene from The CW shows Elena having a heart-to-heart with Ric about her impending road trip to Denver with Damon to get Jeremy before Klaus can get to him. It seems Stefan suggested the trip as a way for Elena to work through her feelings for Damon. Hmm, now let me see. Elena alone on the road with red-hot Damon Salvatore’s smokin’ bod, irresistible smirk and sexy eyebrows on a long trip across the country? How might they pass the time? Bad idea, Stefan! Don’t miss the first of the final four episodes of the season tomorrow night!
