This week on the CW’s (channel 2 in Colorado Springs) Vampire Diaries threw in a few unsuspected twists. Did you know Stefan knew Klaus in Chicago? Did you know Caroline’s father is another vampire killer? Did you know Stefan could tell Elena he doesn’t want to see her ever again? Well if you didn’t we learned the answer to all of these questions is yes in this week’s episode of Vampire Diaries.
Caroline’s daddy decided that he would attempt to retrain Caroline to hate blood through torture. In his twisted mind it was the only way he could avoid killing his daughter. But after a day of torture Caroline’s mother and Tyler rescued her from big bad daddy. Mommy dearest tried to convince Caroline to forgive her father. But instead of forgiveness Caroline cried herself to sleep on Tyler’s shoulder as the realization hit her that her father hates her.
We learned that Klaus has a baby sister named Rebecca. Stefan was her backstory. She was his lover in Chicago and he and Klaus were like brothers during his ripper days. They were living it up in a local haunt (Speak Easy) until the police made a raid on the club with wooden bullets. Klaus and Rebecca were on the run again. Instead of taking Stefan with them Klaus made him forget. Little did Klaus know that Rebecca wanted Stefan and was willing to stop running with Klaus to stay with him. When she chose Stefan he staked her and laid her to rest. Only now did he wake her. When he did he wake her he also allowed Stefan to remember everything. The man Stefan once believed to be an enemy he now remembered as a brother. To make matters worse he now has two women he cares about (Rebecca and Elena). Imagine the inner turmoil he must be dealing with.
Katherine called Damon and hinted that Stefan was in Chicago. He picked up Elena and they took a road trip to the windy city. On the trip Damon gave Elena Stefan’s diary which shared many secrets about his dangerous, evil past. Despite the terrible sins of his past Elena still begged Stefan to come home. Stefan told her that part of his life was over and she and he were over. She needed to go home, he would not come back. He broke her heart.
Klaus has not given up on creating a group of hybrid beings just like him. In fact, he was told Rebecca held the key to reaching the first witch. We were left with the impression that key came in the form of the locket Rebecca lost in the raid. The same locket Stefan had picked up after the chaos was over. Will he share it with them?
