Elena sent Jeremy away to keep him safe. When she found out that Klaus knew where he was and that he wasn't safe, she flew across the country to pick him up. Remember that this episode happened maybe one day after the last one, so it wasn't like she had some big long pause where she hesitated. Also, Kol wouldn't have snapped his neck. He had spent an unknown amount of time pretending to be Jer's friend without hurting him. Klaus and Kol know that he makes good leverage, so they're not going to just blow it on a whim. Plus, Jeremy was still wearing his resurrect-o-ring, so he would have been fine (physically at least). Regardless, I don't think it was entirely about using him to talk to Rose.
What bugs me is that Elena apparently hasn't told him about Evilaric and the ring fiasco... Maybe it happened off-screen? I would have told him to take it off about a nanosecond after I figured out what it was doing to Alaric, but then again, Alaric continued to wear it, too. I LOVE Matt Davis as Evilaric (and Alariklaus), but the ring mythology thing is grating on me. I kind of think he's going to die or go to jail or get committed in the next episode, so maybe it won't matter much longer.
I think we can all agree that the ghost mythology is convoluted and ridiculous. I was definitely thinking--can't Jer just call up Mary on his ghost hotline and ask her?
Did anyone else notice that Damon said thank you to Jeremy when told him to get back in the car? It made my heart smile. Apparently he realized he was being a little harsh. (Wouldn't you be a little weird/awkward/hostile towards the kid who walked in on you hardcore macking on his sister?)
Speaking of that... I was in Delena heaven. I think the hand holding was almost hotter than the making out. Almost
. I mean let's not get crazy. I love how she was like "wow this is way too intimate, I think I'll get some air." Weird how holding hands actually is more intimate than making out. I actually would have preferred their kissing interactions to be a little less intensely hot and a little more intimate. The moment where they looked into each others eyes right before the commercial pretty much made up for it, though. I mean, Damon has been pining for her for over a year (show timeline). All of that pent up emotion (from both of them) getting released into one makeout sesh is bound to be pretty steamy. I giggled when he started getting a little too PG-13, and she kind of guided his head back into PG territory. Though it kind of bugged me that he went there in the first place... But I'll allow it because it made me laugh. I'm pretty sure I rewound that scene and rewatched it at least a dozen times. The Florence + the Machine song was downright PERFECT for the scene and for them. Listen to the words if you haven't already-- they're totally Delena.
As for the scene in front of Mary's corpse (romantic, right?), I have mixed feelings. Loved that Elena was concerned for him. Loved that she was actually smart enough to attempt to run away (for once). I had tears in my eyes when he caressed her face (+ total eye sex), and she held onto his hand for a second. Then she freaking JERKED it away, and I wanted to give her her second concussion of the night. I loved Damon's reaction to the whole situation. He was vulnerable without being neutered (see: Stefan). He called her on her crap. He didn't just roll over and beg her to love him. I also like that he knew exactly what she was thinking, even though I don't think she wanted to be thinking it-- about him doing something to screw it up and her not having to decide. And it cracked me up that Damon was like-- screw you, I'm NOT going to go crazy and kill someone. It was probably the only time she ever halfway wished that he would. Yay for the perfect balance of Damon vulnerability AND snark! I hope they can keep it up.
Delena in the car kind of broke my heart. They both looked miserable, which was the appropriate response to the fight they had, but it still made me sad. It looked like he almost started to say something but didn't. And I'm glad. He can't let her off the hook that easily. Sidebar: Was it just me or did Ian's skin look REALLY bad in the moonlight? I've always known it wasn't great, but they usually do a better job of hiding it. He's still one of the most beautiful human beings on the planet, so I digress.
I have mixed feelings about the Rose and Jeremy conversation. It was definitely superfluous exposition, though an accurate description of the situation. It didn't
bug me that she would talk to Jeremy about it or that Jeremy would listen and consider what she said. He's probably never going to like the fact that Elena's in love with any vampire, much less 2, but he obviously wants her to be happy. He kind of did need to hear that Damon could be good for her because he has never really seen that side of Damon. That convo will make it a little more believable when she picks Damon, and Jeremy doesn't go ape shit about her dating a monster. Hopefully he and Elena will actually talk about it, since he's the last person left in her life who would genuinely be worried and have a right to say something about it. In that case, Rose's exposition wasn't needed. Actually her entire appearance on the show wasn't needed since she didn't have any useful information, not that I'm complaining because a fellow Delena 'shipper will always be welcome.
Oh, and I totally feel for Rebekah. I just want her to have a moment of normalcy and acceptance!
So of course, sheís the one who gets offed through possession, because no one can ever hate Elena and actually have a real shot at Damon, even though it would a much less complicated situation for him.
I'm pretty sure she's not dead. Alaric didn't die when Klaus took his body. Plus, there's a promo pic from the season finale with Rebekah in it looking very terrified and very Rebekah. Dead witches don't really have many reasons to be terrified.
