The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 Things are getting complicated in Mystic Falls again, as episode four, The Five, introduces us to our main mission for the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries. Thankfully, even though we do get some juicy love triangle stuff this week, the show seems to have regained focus on what draws a large portion of fans into the action. With a new object to find and the goodies and baddies joining forces in increasingly ambiguous ways, we can hope for a return to form this season.
The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 The episode’s title forms part of the season’s big mystery, as Klaus’ surprise at Connor’s tattoos last week gets some much-needed exposition. The originals once encountered five super-hunters who have apparently spawned more present-day slayers to continue their work, and they can be identifying by their body-art. Back in the day, these tattoos were visible to everyone (rather than the ones now that only Jeremy can see), and form a map leading to the ‘ultimate weapon’ for killing vampires. There seem to be a lot of ultimate weapons hanging around the place at this point, but I suppose we’ll have to overlook it. We eventually learn that the weapon is actually a cure for vampirism, at which point Stefan’s ears prick up.
The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 a quiet couple of weeks, Klaus and Rebekah have an episode almost entirely to themselves, as their twisted, violent, sibling rivalry gets hashed out across the dinner table. After seeing his sister desperately clinging onto Matt’s evaporated sympathies by buying him a new truck, Klaus sees an opportunity to prey on her vulnerabilities around men. Recalling the time she fell in love with one of The Five, only to be betrayed and stabbed for her efforts, we learn even more about Rebekah’s life-long troubles with men. Claire Holt gives a cracking performance in this episode, but it’s likely she’ll be away for a little while.
