Rebekah, who had fallen in love with their leader, Alexander, discovered they possessed an "Ultimate Weapon" against vampires, and that the key to finding it was using their swords to decode their tattoos (hunter's mark). However, Alexander discovered Rebekah was a vampire, and used a dagger on her and her brothers. Klaus, unaffected by the dagger, killed Alexander and his fellow hunters, and un-daggered his family. Meanwhile, Bonnie, Elena, and Damon head to Whitmore College, where they meet Professor Shane, who appears to be a believer in the supernatural, and takes a liking to Bonnie. At a party being thrown on campus, Damon teaches Elena how to feed properly. At the party, Elena becomes intoxicated by the blood and dances with Damon. However, she is snapped out of her trance by a scared Bonnie. Elena becomes scared she might become like Damon, much to his offense.

Meanwhile, Shane is trying to get Bonnie to get over her guilt via hypnosis, which at first appears not to work when he tries to get her to light a single candle, but when Bonnie opens her eyes she sees she lit every candle in the room. Jeremy tries to talk to Connor, who explains a friend of his was once turned into a vampire but he had to put that friend down, and then the tattoo began to appear.

Meanwhile, Shane is hosting an exhibition at the school with Bonnie's help. Damon and Bonnie turn to him for answers. He tells them that Elena's hallucinations are due to a witch's curse and the only cure is for a potential hunter to make a first kill and pass along the last hunter's powers.

She goes to the bridge where she died and the hunter, Katherine, and her mother convince her to take her own life. She drops her daylight ring into the water. Stefan sends Damon to bring her back. Klaus provides Jeremy with one of his hybrids to kill to complete his transition to a hunter and break the curse in return for a single date with Caroline. This causes tension between Caroline and Tyler, not just because of her having a date with Klaus but also because in Tyler's eyes "[Caroline] sacrificed one friend for another." He feels as if he's the only one in the group that considers the hybrids' safety. The curse is broken just as dawn comes, and Damon saves Elena by throwing them both in the river. He tells Elena that Stefan had been lying to them, but it was all for her. Stefan and Elena sit on the front steps and talk.

Caroline has a confusing and dangerous encounter with Klaus, who turns out to be Silas looking for Bonnie. Silas is persistent, and mortally injures Caroline's mother to take her place. Bonnie reaffirms her promise to help Silas open the veil to purgatory, and Caroline has to inject some of her blood into her mother to bring her back to life. Katherine is suspicious when Bonnie makes her the offer of Silas's immortality and invulnerability in exchange for the tombstone that Katherine took from the island, which Bonnie needs to lift the veil between our world and purgatory.

I liked american Gothic obviously because major Katherine time and no de
I liked pictures of you because major stelena and the truth of de was told. I felt the truth of de was told a lot to us almost as if hang in there we are just giving these fans what they want will go back to what makes sense to the story later!!
Last and maybe least the walking dead Katherine time, ghosts ,mabekah
I don't really have any favorite episodes because I didn't like this season. I have some scenes that I liked out of some episodes. All of them were scenes of Stefan, Rebekah, Caroline & Klaus.
I loved the stuff with Stefan & Rebekah at the 80's dance. We haven't seen Stefan have fun like that in ages. And their hookup because it was about dang time!
All of Stefan & Caroline scenes in all episodes because they are my favorite. All of Stefan & Klaus because they are so entertaining. All of Klaus & Caroline because they're so compelling to watch. Stefan & Lexi reunion was the best!
"Bonnie Bennett, you are the gift I've always wanted." ~ Enzo~
I loved the SE scene on the roof. It seemed like like a wedding with Stefan putting the ring on Elena's finger. Elena's love declaration to Stefan was the best. I also liked the vibe of this episode with the vamps getting away from the council. I loved the car crash scene with Caroline and Rebekah. And with Klaus as Tyler kissing Caroline in the woods. Elena was herself - how could I not l love it!
2. Pictures of You
SE romantic dance - even if Elena didn't seem that into it Stefan was and he was awesome. He was so charming, sensitive, handsome - can you tell I love Stefan? Stefan didn't shove his bouquet of flowers in Elena's face but somehow Damon had to turn a corsage moment with Elena into an assault. I also loved Caroline and Stefan dancing and then Caroline and Tyler. I also loved that no one danced with Damon - seriously that can't be a coincidence. Bonnie was so strong kicking Elena's ass - even with no-humanity as an excuse killing Bonnie is still not okay. Matt seemed to get through to Rebekah about being good. Silas getting into Damon's head and showing us that even Damon knows deep down that he and Elena were just a one night stand and that DE have nothing compared to the real relationship and history that SE have. Damon getting stabbed is always a bonus and should happen at least twice an episode. Lastly, Elena dropping truth bombs on everyone especially Damon getting it the worst and Stefan being left virtually unscathed. Again, that can't be a coincidence.
3. We'll Always Have Bourbon Street
First I'm a sucker for flashbacks with dapper clothing and the 40's look suited Stefan and Lexi beautifully. Lexi makes any episode that much more special. I enjoyed hearing about Stefan's journey with his blood lust and how he was serving penance for all the death he has caused. It showed such evolution of Stefan's character. It also showed what a dick Damon is. Not only did Lexi have to force Damon not to follow Stefan in the past because Damon would undo Stefan's progress but Damon was not able to follow up with breaking the sire bond even though he promised Stefan. Stefan trusting Damon and defending Damon to Caroline shows that Stefan has integrity and deep love for his brother. It showed once again how Damon calls himself selfless when the truth is really that he is selfish as he didn't break the sire bond even though he now had the instructions on how to set Elena - the woman he supposedly loves - free. It was shocking to see the effect the sire bond had on Charlotte even though Damon turned her over 70 years ago. I loved the girls drinking and dancing together until it got ugly in Damon's bath tub.
This was where she belonged, and she found it at last. With Stefan, she was home.
I liked this episode because Elena's whole transition into a vampire was pretty awesome. The beginning of Bonnie's journey into expression and the whole council dilemma was pretty intense as well. I liked how Rebekah even though responsible for Elena's death saved her from dying completely. And the Stefan and Elena scene was beautiful. They really the only couple of TVD that can get me teary eyes with their non words, their expressions, and their emotion. Their whole "im smiling" but they were really distraught face was heartbreaking and Elena's speech to Stefan about how she came back for him! NOW THAT WAS A DECLARATION OF LOVE.
4x11- Afterschool Special
This episode was fun to watch because Rebekah was bad ass. She made most of the gang face reality yet break their hearts all in once. The confession of Elena to Stefan was intense and his face said it all. Good gracious to Paul Wesley with showing so many emotions in one look. Stefan walking away from Elena was awesome as well and well deserving for his sake.
4x21- Shes come undone
Elena in this episode was fantastic. Her no emotions, Her Balzy attitude to her heartbreaking switch of turning it all back on was fantastic. Even her role as katherine in this episode was great. I loved the scenes between Bekah and matt as well as the intensity of Silas with Caroline and Bonnie. There was so much in this episode that was greatly done.
Watching Elena fawn all over Damon while ripping out Stefan' heart once again was just too much too handle. Even though Elena's love declaration was the biggest joke of a love declaration I've ever heard, she still said she loved Damon. Elena' point of view was missing. All the reasons she said she loved Damon were not evident. It was the most confusing TVD episode I've ever watched.
Dalaric was a joke - since when is Alaric all about Damon getting the girl. Does Alaric not realize it was Damon killing him over and over that gave Esther the chance to turn him to the dark side? Even Jeremy was suddenly saying he would be happy with whatever choice Elena makes - sorry no, that's not Jeremy either. The epic fight between Katherine and Elena was also predictable as was Katherine getting the cure.
There were some good scenes such as Bonnie and Jeremy were very touching. Lexi and Stefan were hilarious. Even Lexi showed that even in her supernatural death she still has more class than Damon.
Just in case as an SE fan I wasn't traumatized enough, Stefan turns out to be Silas' doppelganger and Silas locks him in a trunk and drowns him where Stefan can just drown over and over until someone figure out where he is.
WORST TVD EPISODE TO DATE!
2. 4x12 A View to a Kill
I'm not a huge fan of Kol so my attitude was just kill him already! It irritated me too how they kept having Kol repeat how he doesn't fancy suffering from the hunters' curse so he's just going to cut off Jeremy's arm. Then he hesitates because he wasn't sure whether Jeremy is left or right-handed. Although I do love Jeremy and am glad they brought him back, in that moment I was thinking just cut off his freaking arm already! That's how irritated I was with the Kol scenes.
There were some wonderful scenes - mostly with Stefan. Even though Stefan was trying to manipulate Rebekah to get the dagger he was still a gentleman and showed Rebekah a great time at the dance. Stefan was also very honest with Rebekah regarding the cure and about Kol's death.
3. 4x17 Because the Night
It has to be one of my least favorite because I barely remember what happened this episode and even after reading the recap have no desire to re-watch it. I was happy with the actress they cast as Asia - I'm a huge fan of Spartacus and she was awesome in that - but then she was in the episode for mere minutes before being killed. And they had referred to her as a mentor for Bonnie?
I am so p**** off, I wrote a page long review about my fav episodes and why I chose them and put so much love and heartblood in it and when I wanted to post it, it disappeared Now I am going to make it short, so sad - Episode 423 Graduation, epic finale, for so many reasons - Episode 409 O Come All Ye FAithful, epic midseason finale, shook me to my core, I bawled 2 days and felt world weariness for many weeks -Episode 404 The Five, love flashbacks and period drama
I might add that I chose another one in addition, really isn't a TVD episode, but a backdoor pilot Episode 420 THe Originals, wow, just saying wow!!! Loved it!!! The atmosphere in NO, the steaminess, I am defintely going back for more.
My 3 favourite episodes were: - Growing Pains (Loved all the SE scenes and Elena turning) - Pictures of You (After a long time, we had some good SE scenes. Also, loved everything Elena said to Damon) -Memorial (Loved everything, Stefan teaching Elena how to feed and trying to help her. Just hated the part where Elena fed from Damon. Blagh)
My Brother's Keeper - Besides the cute klaroline scenes I did not like this episode because of we all know why lol Down the Rabbit hole- What killed this episode for me was the fact they killed Jeremy. Besides alaric's death this one was heartbreaking Because of the night - I didn't really care for this episode with Elena and Damon in NY. And the fact that Lexi and Damon hooked up ever. He killed her because he was a jerk at the time and nothing can justify that.
Favorite Character of TVD and why
Thats a tough one but I would have to say my overall favorite character is Klaus. He can be the grimiest jerk in the world and I find him so interesting. His back story his disfunctional mindset, his baggage and his need to be loved but will kill anyone who might get too close. I love all his layers and I think he is awesome.
Caroline would be my second. She has gone through so much and shes such a strong and realistic character.
I am not taking any risks anymore so I am posting on quick reply, but don't know how to color red here...
Least episodes I liked:
Definiteley DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE (414) and STAND BY ME (415) It is very simple why...because Jeremy had died and I really was devastated. To see his sweet little face when he dropped on the ground dead was too much for me. Normally I watch and rewatch a single episode about 3-6 times, until today I have not watched these episodes more than once each. BECAUSE THE NIGHT (417), it felt kind of like a filler for me. And that Bex and Elena bonding a la Thelma&Louise did not convince me.
AMERICAN GOTHIC (418), because I couldn't digest Elijah & Katharina. How glad I was that he dumped her though. On a sidenote, how stupid was Damon in that episode, turning his back on Kat while looking in the empty aquarium, didn't Grandpa learn in all these ys that you should never turn your back on someone you don't trust Duh!!!
