The Vampire Diaries: Season 2, Episode 19 :: Klaus
This week on The Vampire Diaries (Season 2, Episode 19), Elena and Elijah team up to destroy Klaus. Also, we learn pivotal information about the sun and the moon curse. Check out our recap of “Klaus”, which aired April 21, 2011.
This week’s episode begins with the effects of Elena’s bad decisions – mainly, bringing Elijah back to life. Now that the knife has been removed, Elijah is free to roam the earth again. Elena suggests that the two of them work together to kill Klaus, so Bonnie doesn’t have to die. In order to understand Klaus’ motives, Elijah explains their history with Katerina. Turns out, Klaus and Elijah are brothers.

Their family is the original vampire bloodline. In a surprise twist, the curse of the sun and moon (which everyone has been trying to break) is actually fake. Klaus invented the curse to make sure both vampires and werewolves would never let the doppelganger out of their sight. The real curse was placed on Klaus, and he has been trying to break it for 1,000 years. Klaus had a different father and came from two bloodlines: vampire and werewolf. This makes him a werevamp, a very dangerous species. The witches placed a curse on him to silence his werewolf side.
Meanwhile, Klaus is eager to break the real curse that was placed on him now that he has easy access to the doppelganger. If he breaks the curse he can return to being a werevamp and create his own species. Elijah tells Elena that Klaus can only be killed by a witch during a full moon – meaning Bonnie is their only hope. He also reveals that he found a way to save the doppelganger.
Next week, Klaus abandons Alaric’s body and returns to Mystic Falls in his own incarnation. Stay tuned for more Vampire Diaries.
