The Truth about Elijah
26 October 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Jules and Brady are getting rid off the bodies of the other werewolves and the stranger Stevie arrives and tells about the son and moon curse and the moonstone. They decide to kidnap the doppelganger Elena to break the curse and kill every vampire in Mystic Falls. Meanwhile Stefan and Elena plan a weekend alone in the isolated cabin that belonged to her parents. Damon shows Alaric the instruments that John has given to him to kill Klaus. Tyler visits Jules and she asks him to betray his friends with the help of Brady and Stevie to break the curse. Jules, Stevie and two other werewolves capture and torture Damon to get the moonstone, but Elijah rescue Damon again, and kills the werewolves but Jules that escapes. Meanwhile Brady chases Elena while Tyler hurts Stefan to avoid him to break the curse. However Stefan tells him that Elena has to die to break the curse. Bonnie, Caroline and Jeremy abduct Luka to know the truth about Elijah and they find that he intends to kill the doppelganger. John poisons the relationship between Jenna and Alaric.

"Crying Wolf" is an average episode where the best part is the revelation of the true intention of Elijah. The lack of personality of Tyler is impressive but humans are imperfect and his behavior is acceptable for a confused teenager. The end of the arrogant werewolves was also good, but unfortunately Jules survives. John unfortunately continues in the show and I really hate this detestable character. My vote is seven.
