OFF WITH MY BROTHER'S HEAD Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had to "kill" Stefan just long enough for Silas to toy with Qetsiyah.
Nadia woke up in a bad hotel room and the stake was out of her. She told Katherine she was a fool not to run. But Katherine's confident that she's pretty good at dodging the diabolical ones -- and plus, Silas won't drink her to cure himself until after he destroys the other side. (Ha!) If he's mortal and dies as a witch when the supernatural purgatory still exists, he'll go there. Katherine had one question: Where was Nadia when Katherine went back to Bulgaria and searched for her daughter? "It's nice to meet you," Katherine said. Nadia had a single tear. AND SO DID I.
Tyler was wearing a hot Henley when Caroline told him to stay and be the love of her life -- love her more than he hates Klaus. I teared up and got chills. Such a great line. Tyler had tears in his eyes when he told her he couldn't do that. She told him if he took another step, they were through. And that bastard left. Caroline cried and I got chills again. And teared up. Wow, wasn't expecting that breakup to hit me that hard. It's not like Tyler's been around and this has been an epic love as of late. But that was so... final. You had to feel for them.
Back at Salvatore Mansion, desiccated Silas was on the couch as Elena and Damon gave us a status report: The only way for Silas to trade his life for Bonnie's is if he's a witch. The only way to become a witch is to have the cure. And knock, knock. Who could be at the door? Damon had invited the brown-eyed cure over. Katherine thought she was there so they could show her that she'd eluded death yet again. They finally did something right for once. How did it feel? "Thrilling," Damon said. And she figured it out. Damon bit her neck and she begged him: She said Silas would need all of her blood and she didn't want to die. Why didn't she pull out the, "I just found my daughter!" card? They wouldn't have believed her? "Goodbye, Katherine," he said, and he held her head down to Silas' mouth. Silas' hand came up to her head just as it had to Jeremy's. I expected Elena to stop Damon, but then Katherine had killed Jeremy and this is to bring Bonnie back. Katherine dropped to the floor, and I was sad. For a moment. But then Damon heard something. Her heartbeat. She awoke. "Am I in hell?" she asked. Had she consumed some of Nadia's vampire blood, just in case someone tried to kill her when she was out and about? Was she the mystical anchor? (But she wasn't around 2,000 years ago, right?) Did Silas NOT need to drink all of her? Had Qetsiyah done some sort of spell? Or had "Matt"? Theories?
