What a fantastic episode! Can you say thrilling? From start to finish it was packed with action, blood and heartbreak. I think this was my favorite episode, ever. Even more than the Season 1 finale. It was THAT good.
Let me break it down for you...(With a bit a spoilers, but I don't give too much away!)
Katherine is back. In black.(heh) And causing a whole bunch of trouble. Not just for the Salvatore brothers either. She crashes Tyler's fathers funeral and turns on Bonnie.
Stefan and Damon have a very nice brother bonding moment.
Tyler doesn't know what's going on with him. His uncle, Mason Lockwood shows up for the funeral. And Elena's Uncle/Father leaves town. (With a bit persuading.)
Katherine pursues Stefan and rejects Damon. Damon goes, well, crazy. Turns on Elena and her brother. Caroline is in the hospital still, and that's good news and bad.
So, have you watched this episode yet? If not, GET ON IT!
