The Vampire Diaries: Season 3, Episode 20 :: Do Not Go Gentle
This week on The Vampire Diaries (Season 3, Episode 20), it’s the Decade Dance. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Do Not Go Gentle”, which aired April 26, 2012, to discover what you missed.
Klaus’s mother (Esther) and “evil” Alaric share their hatred for vampires and formulate a plan to kill them all. If they combine Alaric’s magic ring with the stake made out of white ash, the stake can never be destroyed. But, that’s not the end of it. Esther wants to harness Alaric’s evil side and turn him into the strongest vampire killer ever. To do this, she needs Elena’s blood. Since Elena won’t go along with the plan, Esther kidnaps her.
It’s the decade dance at the high school, and this year’s theme is the 1920s. It seems Elena has changed her mind since last week’s hook up with Damon. This week she decides to invite Stefan to the dance. Meanwhile, Klaus is still pining away over Caroline. He asks her to dance, making Tyler insanely jealous. But, Caroline has to go along with the plan so Klaus doesn’t find out that Tyler isn’t linked to him anymore.
Damon shows up at the high school with a plan to save Alaric. When the gang tries to leave, they discover that Esther has trapped them all inside using a salt ring. Bonnie uses her magic to try to erase the ring, but it doesn’t work. Since humans are the only ones who can leave the ring, Matt and Jeremy head out to find Alaric and Elena. They stop Esther just in time for Alaric to kill her.
If Alaric goes through with the transformation that Esther had planned, he won’t be able to control himself. He decides to let himself die instead. In a very strange turn of events, Bonnie wakes up from a nightmare not quite feeling right. Turns out, she is being controlled by Esther (who we thought was dead!). She finds Alaric, who is slowly dying, and feeds him her blood. This quickly brings him back to life, now as a vampire.
