The Vampire Diaries: Season 2, Episode 5
Damon and Stefan’s secret is revealed and Katherine finds a new allie. Find out more on this week’s recap of The Vampire Diaries.
The truth finally came out in this week’s episode. After last week’s run-in with Damon, Mason Lockwood tattles and shares the vampire brothers’ secret with Sheriff Forbes. Although she is skeptical at first, a glass of vervain-spiked lemonade proves them guilty. Mason and Sheriff Forbes work together to lure Damon and Stefan into the forest, where they shoot them and drag them into an underground cave.
The Vampire Diaries
To The Rescue
Ever since Caroline turned vampire, her level of cool has been on the rise. This week was no exception. Sensing Stefan and Damon might be in trouble, she tracks them down and risks her own secret in order to save them. Good news: the sexy vampire brothers live. Bad news: Sheriff Forbes is less than thrilled to have a vampire daughter, and goes as far as disowning her. The group takes her to the cell in the Salvatore’s basement to drain her of vervain and take away her memory of the incident.
There were two completely unexpected moments this week. First, Stefan starts to drink human blood (Elena’s blood, at that) in an attempt to gain strength to fight Katherine. Based on his lack of control last time, this could end poorly. Second, Katherine and Mason are partners in crime! A flashback reveals that they were friends in the past, and the car scene at the end of the episode shows Katherine is the one who is really after the moonstone. What does it all mean? What is the deal with this rock?
Next week, Jeremy helps Damon with the Katherine situation and Bonnie returns to the show. Stay tuned for more Vampire Diaries!
