The Vampire Diaries: Season 3, Episode 22 :: The Departed

May 10, 2012

This week on The Vampire Diaries (Season 3, Episode 22), a main character dies! Read Kidzworld’s recap of “The Departed”, which aired May 10, 2012, to discover what you missed.

House Arrest

After last week’s drama, Elena is under house arrest as everyone tries to protect her. Matt has been instructed to keep an eye over her, and try to convince her to leave town. While the two are hanging out, Elena has flashbacks to her sophomore year of high school, before her parents were killed. She realizes she was a bad girlfriend to Matt, and that she led him on even though she knew how she really felt. Because of this, she decides she finally needs to embrace her feelings and choose between Stefan and Damon.

The Deal

Meanwhile, Elijah is back in town, and he wants to make a deal with the Salvatores to protect his brother Klaus. They agree that if Damon and Stefan give Elijah the white oak stake and Klaus’ body, all of the Originals will leave Mystic Falls and let Elena live a long and happy life. Bonnie and Damon go to a storage unit where they have hidden Klaus’ body. Unbeknownst to Damon, while he steps away from the coffin Bonnie performs some magic that will seriously affect the outcome of some characters later in the episode. Before long, “evil” Rick shows up, eager to kill Klaus. Damon tries to protect the body, but it isn’t any use. Rick stakes Klaus, meaning that everyone else in his bloodline will eventually die too.

The Choice

Elena wakes up from a nap and realizes she is in a moving car. Turns out, Matt drugged her in order to get her out of town. While they are driving, Elena gets a phone call from Stefan. She learns that Klaus has been killed, which means Tyler, Stefan and Damon should be dying soon. Since Stefan and Damon are in two different locations, and she only has an hour or so before they die, she finally has to choose between the brothers. Her final choice? Stefan!!

Body Double

The first death starts with Tyler. While he and Caroline are trying to escape town, he starts to feel odd. Once he realizes what happens, he makes Caroline leave him so he can die alone. But, in a surprising twist, we learn that Tyler isn’t actually the real Tyler. While Bonnie was with Klaus’ body earlier, she did a little switcheroo – so when Alaric killed Klaus earlier, he really killed Tyler. Which means Stefan and Damon won’t have to die after all.

But, Elijah and Rebekah still think Klaus is dead, and they want Alaric dead too. Since the easiest way to kill Alaric is by killing Elena, they make Matt drive off the road over a bridge. Stefan shows up to save the day, but it is too late. Elena dies!! In another crazy twist, we find out that Dr. Meredith gave Elena vampire blood earlier in the day in order to help her heal. Since she had the blood in her system when she went over the bridge, Elena will come back as a vampire. Who saw that coming?!

Have Your Say

How do you think Elena will be as a vampire? Will she regret choosing Stefan? Let us know what you think!!
