The Vampire Diaries: Season 2, Episode 21 :: The Sun Also Rises
This week on The Vampire Diaries (Season 2, Episode 21), Klaus finally performs the long awaited sacrifice, killing three major characters. Check out our recap of “The Sun Also Rises”, which aired May 5, 2011.
A Completed Sacrifice
After being killed by Klaus last episode – but not before she drank his blood – Jenna makes the full transition to vampire. She can now be used for Klaus’ sacrifice. After gathering Jenna (the vampire), Elena (the doppelganger) and Jules (the werewolf), Klaus and Greta perform a crazy ritual complete with chanting and fire. Stefan steps in at the last minute to offer himself instead of Jenna but Klaus turns him down and the sacrifice continues as planned.

Meanwhile, Bonnie, Jeremy and Alaric try to brainstorm a way for Elena to survive the sacrifice and come back to life as a human, not a vampire (after drinking Damon’s blood last episode). Klaus is finally successful in completing his sacrifice, killing Jules, Jenna and Elena. While Elena comes back to life at the end of the episode (thanks to Bonnie’s spell from last episode), the same good news can’t be said for the other two characters.
With the sacrifice complete, Klaus finally turns into a werevamp, but not before Damon and Bonnie make an appearance. After they weaken Klaus and his witch, Elijah is supposed to finish off his brother. But, unfortunately, he can’t go through with it. Klaus tells him that they still have family alive, and he will take Elijah to see them if he lets Klaus live.
In next week’s season finale, Damon tries to deal with the consequences of his werewolf bite and the sacrifice continues to have an effect on everyone’s lives. Stay tuned for the last episode of The Vampire Diaries.
