Was taken out of Elena and Stefan scene as I kept thinking ''Erm Bonnie her mum'' as far as they knew Bonnie was in danger but they just had to have a heart to heart about the kiss, I dont know it just bugged me.
This bothered me too. I understand that incapacitating Jamie, getting herself free from being tied up, and getting the wood out of Stefan were priorities, but confessing that she and Damon kissed could have waited. The last she saw of Bonnie, she was being kidnapped by Abby. There's no way that Elena could have received/read a text before she got free because she was still tied up at the time. But by all means, take the time to chat with your ex while your friend has been abducted to who knows where?
I agree that some of her motivation behind telling Damon was to ease her conscience and to see his reaction, and because she knew it was only a matter of time before Stefan found out anyway. Damon already oh so casually mentioned it to Bonnie. If he was willing to tell Bonnie about it so easily, I think Elena knew that he'd eventually tell Stefan (or someone else would mention it to Stefan after Damon told them or Stefan would overhear two people talking about it). By confessing it herself, she had some control of the situation and at the very least she wouldn't be blindsided by Stefan charging into her house one day all angry about the kiss.
I found her word choice interesting. As someone else already pointed out, she said, "I kissed Damon," not "Damon kissed me." Maybe I'm too much of a nitpicker, but in my opinion Damon kissed Elena. True, she didn't stop him (and she also said she didn't feel guilty about it) but the grammar nazi in me is gnashing my teeth about how kiss is an action verb and Elena is the object of that verb. I agree that she was trying to take some of the blame off Damon and that she probably feels she is taking responsibility for participating in what happened in the hopes of Damon and Stefan's relationship being slightly less damaged than if she said that Damon initiated it.
Dr. Fell clearly pegged Damon as a vamp. How'd she find out? Would it be because she is one council member who can actually put 2 and 2 together and come up with "Damon and Stefan are vampires?" Were's she been for the past year, because if she's on the council, why didn't Damon know about her.
We'll probably get some lame story in the future about how she was away at med school and just came back to town some time after Logan's death to take his place on the council. That doesn't explain everything (or anything, really), but I predict she'll say something along those lines soon (which, was the explanation for Wren's sudden reappearance on Pretty Little Liars when he got hired at the hospital in town).
I know Damon said that there are always parties or other event ("Why can't council meetings ever just be council meetings?"), but I assumed that as some point during the cover event, the council members all actually gathered in one room together to discuss things, vote on taking specific actions, etc. Does everyone else on the council know that Damon is a vampire now? If not, how did Meredith know?
I wonder who pulled the dagger from Elijah's chest? It can't be Damon because Damon would've gotten killed doing this. Maybe Bonnie????
I thought they would only get killed if they used it on another vampire (as in staking them). Pulling it out is the opposite, maybe that's okay.
And that's only if you believe what John and Elijah told Damon and Stefan the NSDR about the ash dagger (at this point, I take all information from/about the Originals with a big fat grain of salt). We know that Klaus undaggered Rebekah (although I guess the show could try to explain that away) so I'm pretty sure that vampires can undagger an Original. It's just daggering an Original that will (supposedly) kill them.
How much did I love Damon tonight? What did he do? Open the coffin. Yank out the dagger. Toss in a few blood bags and slam it shut? I can just picture it. Damon generally remembers the details, and he had to know there would be no random humans hanging around the basement of the witch house for Elijah to pump up on.
Ha, that's exactly how I imagined it!
I am pretty sure that Damon put a sticky note on one of the blood bags that said, “Love, Damon. X O X O X O.” He would want credit.
Damon either went the sarcastic route and left that note and drew red hearts or he went the straightforward route and left a note that said, "You're welcome. You can find a way to make it up to me later. Damon (NOT STEFAN)"
I don't have stomach for Stefan going all "you shouldn't have lied to me Elena". Shut up Stefan. She has no reason to trust you with anything or include you in anything. You are the crazy guy who just an episode ago was threatening to kill her. Heck, you are the guy who made a point of not including her in your plans and then using her as a weapon in it against her will. Just shut up...
I agree. He is keeping things from her (like the coffins, his plan to make her sound scared enough to convince Klaus he would really kill her) yet he somehow expects her to be upfront and honest with him about all her plans? That hypocritical attitude is not going to win her over, Stefan.
I love that Damon went to check up on Meredith. I know it could be interpreted as nosy, but doing stuff like that is how Damon shows that he cares. The fact that he happened to be right was a bonus, but I really hate that Alaric took that as a sign to be totally honest with Meredith. Dude, you've known her for all of a few hours and you're telling her about your ring? Not smart, as evidenced by Ms. Grabby Hands. Even if that wasn't a super special ring, I'd be offended if anyone tried to take a ring off my finger. Boundaries, Meredith. I really wonder if I'd like her better if they had another actress portraying her. I can't stand her smirky looks and her attempts at being sexy/flirty. Ugh. It's like she went to the acting school of Trying Too Hard.
Even though I've been hoping for the return of Elijah all season, it was ridiculously exciting when it finally happened!
