The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 6 After last week’s big game-changer, we get into the nitty gritty of what killing a hunter will do to the hunted, and Elena’s experience in this episode goes far beyond normal guilt. With Connor gone, we also need a brand new big bad for the season, and The Vampire Diaries may well have sneaked in some clues this week. We start off with the shocking sight of Elena stabbing Jeremy in the neck, and end with the inevitable scene of her stabbing The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 6 Stefan in the heart. Is this a turning point for the most tedious love triangle on telly? I doubt it, but at least we might get to see the other side of it for a while.
I’ll start off with the love triangle, since it’s still a point of interest for most fans who haven’t tuned out yet. At the end of season three, Elena chose Stefan. Then she turned into a vampire and everyone assumed this would lead her to Damon’s brooding arms. When that didn’t happen, Stefan and Elena’s rekindled relationship was more weird and co-dependent than ever, and this week sees our heroine The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 6 finally make a definitive choice for herself, rather than whining about how hard it is to have two handsome immortals love you. She doesn’t trust Stefan as much as she used to, and has much more in common with Damon now that she’s joined team undead.
Despite being tired of the whole plot thread, I thought the final break-up scene was handled very nicely. The writers know they have two opposing shipper groups to please and so far they haven’t kicked any of them while they’re down, so my guess is that they won’t start now. We’ve got a two week break before we see the results of Elena’s now-requited feelings for Damon, but I don’t expect them to jump in the sack right away. Despite the mythology unravelling at break-neck speed and plot lines coming and going at an admirable rate, The Vampire Diaries has always taken its time with the love stories, for good or ill. Delena fans should get their big romance, but in a way that respects the characters.
But before she has time to worry about which Salvatore she’s smooching, there’s a The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 6 little mystical madness to see off. As promised by the final scene of last week, her hallucinations are graphic and insightful, with visions ranging from a decomposing Connor, to a home truth-giving Katherine and a manipulative mother talking her right up to the ledge. I was kind of hoping our glimpse of Katherine in the promo meant she was returning for real, but this was good enough. The whole episode reminded me of Buffy’s Conversations with Dead People, when The First tried to talk Willow into killing herself.
