This week's episode of The Vampire Diaries is pretty slow and typical — Elena is danger, Damon has to save her — until the end. In fact, things are downright snore-inducing down in Dr. Maxfield's makeshift lab, but there's a surprise in store after Elena gets saved, and neither she nor Damon/Elena fans can be very happy about it. Katherine, meanwhile, is a lovesick puppy over Stefan after their night of passion, while also dealing with her impending death.
The bombshells toward the end of the episode aren't the only entertaining parts of the episode — Matt's back! It's actually kind of funny, and trust me, this episode needs some moments of levity. Let's get into the good, the bad, and the bloody when you keep reading.
