Vampire Diaries "Somebody That I Used To Know" Episode Review

Let's go vampire hunting! That's basically what the whole cast did. To help Rayna free her mind and to hopefully help so that Bonnie doesn't die.

I actually really loved this episode. Perhaps they put back into the show the one thing I've felt like this show has lacked. Vampires. I mean, it's a show about vampires, but I feel like the vampires haven't been true vampires. I actually almost forget that Damon and Stefan are vampires until someone says something or they actually use one of their powers.

It was so cute watching Bonnie and Enzo fall in love. I wasn't totally for this couple at first. I'm a big fan of Jeremy and Bonnie, but a couple episodes back, I became a huge fan. They are so cute together and Bonnie somehow brings out the human side of Enzo. I think that's why I like it. Because Bonnie brings out the good in him. You don't have to second guess what he's going to do. Not like Damon. You never know what he's going to do. Enzo wants to protect Bonnie. That's all he wants.

Will he protect her from this though? I really don't want Bonnie do die and I don't think she will. Because if she did, I'm sure we would have heard some news by now that Elena would be coming back and we haven't. So, I do have faith in the show that something will turn around and Bonnie will get better.

We finally know what's in the vault! I'm not sure why it's so scary. But Alex wants to open the vault because her sister got trapped inside while they were sealing what truly is in there. Or maybe the sister is the reason the vault is sealed, who knows. Either way, I have a funny feeling if they let her out. It sounds bad. Nothing on this show like that, is never good.

Then there's Stefan. Trying to piece his "life" back together. Sometimes you just have to move on and create a new life, but he doesn't want to do that. Or at least to let Caroline know why he did what he did. Leave her alone and ran off. Stefan was protecting her, but he could have done better. I guess both Salvatores have something in common. One writes in a letter goodbye instead of confronting Bonnie and look at where that has gotten him. Then there's Stefan who did nothing and look where that got him.

However, I think there's something deeper going on in Alaric that he just doesn't want to admit out loud quite yet. Or maybe he never does. I think he's afraid that once Stefan explains all that happened, that Caroline will forgive him and go back to him and leave Alaric all alone with his two daughters. It is weird that they want to go to a justice of the peace. Stefan is right, that seems so un-Caroline. I picture Caroline being in charge of her own wedding and having a huge one at that! Not doing something simple. She doesn't love Alaric. So, why are they getting married?

That moment where Stefan saw Caroline was so awkward. She didn't say anything! Just completely ignored him. I get that she's mad at him and maybe seeing him brought up all those hurt feelings and maybe other feelings. Still, I'm not sure if it's going to go the way Stefan wants it to go. Besides, I'm not a big fan of Stefan and Caroline anyways, so maybe that's why I don't think it'll go how Stefan wants it to go.

This stone has really made Rayna go crazy. At first, it was ok, but now, it seems to be getting worse. Maybe killing off the few didn't help, but made more come into her head and so on and so on. How is it possible that they can kill all these vampires? It was awesome seeing the old team back together. Though all of them are stubborn and don't actually want to go back to the way things were. But Bonnie is super mad at Damon and can't get over it. It's been 3 years, isn't that enough time? Then there's Alaric. I get him wanting to protect his family and Damon can be unpredictable, but I don't know, I don't think Damon would be bad around his kids. Plus, he's forgetting one thing. His kids are witches. So once they learn magic (or they already know it), they can protect themselves. 

This won't be the end of the killing squad since Rayna added more names. The team will get back together, no matter how much they want to protest.
