Vampire Diaries 3X05 officially blew my mind

14 Oct

I just finished watching episode 3X05 of Vampire Diaries “The Reckoning.” I won’t recap every detail of the episode for two reasons.

It was obvious Klaus would quickly discover that Elena was still very much alive but I wasn’t sure what would come next. Clearly he couldn’t kill her (important rule in television, don’t kill off your female lead…otherwise you end up with the disaster that was O.C. season 4). So what could the writers possibly have in store? Continue reading
