(Season 2, Episode 2, “Brave New World”)
In short, Damon knows something is up with the Lockwood men and he wants Stefan’s help to figure it out. Caroline is a vampire, and Matt loves her, so she is going to try and control it. Elena and Jeremy aren’t terribly committed to their anti-Damon plan, since both cave and have conversations with him about the future. Stefan and Elena enjoy a sweet kiss on a Ferris wheel, living their lives in preparation of the trouble headed their way courtesy of the currently MIA Katherine. Oh, and Bonnie is a bitch.
I can’t stand Bonnie. While it is cool that she can set people/vampires on fire with the power of her mind, she is such a preachy brat. SHE IS THE REASON CAROLINE IS A VAMPIRE! It was her idea, her insistence to give Caroline Damon’s blood, so, by the chain of causality, it is her fault that the carnival worker that she shared two words with (and seemed extremely upset over his demise) got all drained and un-alive. Maybe Bonnie can go on another vacation, go bore someone else with her self-righteous prattle.
Caroline on the hand, is pretty sweet as a vampire. She took on Damon without insecurity or self-pity, a great display of a former victim asserting her power to her former victimizer. Plus, if anyone is anal retentive enough to control blood lust, I think it’s Caroline, and now she knows that Matt is in love with her, so she has a good reason to not be all murder-y and therefore she may live a bit longer than supposed. Do I detect a hint of future kissing between faithful Stefan and remade Caroline?
I mean, if TV has taught me anything, nothing spells doom for a couple like a Ferris wheel.
