September 30, 2011 – Fans of The Vampire Diaries should be used to being slammed by the in-your-face twists and shocks that keep coming our way, but it just keeps happening! What a ride The End of the Affair turned out to be!
The OMG moments just kept coming from all directions… Between Katherine being back with a bang (or random unexpected phone call, rather), and Rebekah turning out to be Klaus’ sister, they once more left us utterly speechless.

Did anyone see that coming? I mean, we knew Katherine would be reappearing at some point, but the way they completely caught us off guard was genius. And, not to mention the fact that Rebekah was Klaus’ sister all along… all these months they’ve been teasing us with this bad-girl vampire from Stefan’s past and all the while she was one of the coveted Originals! Wow.
And to drive us further insane, it turns out that Klaus and Stefan were besties all along! Poor Stefan just didn’t remember because he’d been compelled to forget… Wow, again.

But, it didn’t stop there… the whole time Katherine was around as well, following Stefan to Chicago and witnessing all his bad deeds with Klaus and Rebekah.
Although, this does bring on a big question… why didn’t Katherine tell Stefan he was friends with Klaus? Or did she maybe just arrive at the bar the same time that Klaus and his sister took off, and missed the whole thing? Hopefully we’ll get more insight into this in coming episodes…
‘Vampire Diaries’ episode ‘The End of the Affair’ is big game-changer
How about that necklace? Who would have thought that it once belonged to an Original vampire before it became Elena’s? Although an even more interesting fact about the jewel is that it apparently has some strong powers… Can’t wait to find out what they are!
So, once again, we are left with a whole new set of mysteries to solve. One of the biggest being, who in the heck is Klaus running from? Is that why he wants to build a hybrid army, to fight whomever is after him? Who could be more powerful than a 1,000 year old hybrid Original vampire who has lost most of his humanity?
Zach Roerig of ‘Vampire Diaries’: Tyler and Caroline are right for each other
Can’t wait to begin unfolding the clues.
While these were the biggest issues from the episode, we still can’t ignore Caroline’s recent capture and torture by her own father. It was also great seeing Tyler and Sheriff Forbes come to the rescue.
However, we can’t help but think that this is not the last we’ve heard of Bill’s “vampire fix.” Could he be be on to something? Is it possible he does have a way to “cure” vampires from their blood dependence? There definitely seems to be more to this than just making Caroline’s dad seem obsessed with getting rid of vampires…
