The Salvatore party is unpleasantly surprised that killing Elijah didn't harm but release Katherine. Damon indignantly rejects her flirtation. Dr. Jonas Martin uses invisible astral projection to enable his son Luka to retrieve the ash dagger and thus revive Elijah, but Damon notices so, finds back and thus kills the unidentified knave. Grieved even worse, Jonas attacks Jeremy, traitor witch Bonnie and her girls night friends, but ends up dead and surprisingly restoring Bonnie's powers. Alaric refuses to keep lying to Jenna, who refuses to be protected by secrecy, so they bow out of the action till the truth can be told. Matt confronts Caroline who ultimately convinces him of her love, discloses being a vampire and has to bite him after a lethal attack. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


When Katherine retrieves blood from the Salvatore's big cooler, (while Luka is "astro-projecting") there is no light visible through the crack as she approaches, then it's on when she opens it, but when she suddenly slams it shut, you can still see through the crack that the light is on.

The Smart Katherine
1 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Stefan meets with Dr. Jonas Martin and proposes to team-up with him to vanquish Klaus. But the warlock refuses and uses astral projection to send Luka totally invisible to the Salvatore house and save Elijah. However, Katherine avoids the removal of the dagger and Damon uses a flamethrower to burn Luka to death. Dr. Jonas goes to the mystic Grill to revenge the death of Luca attacking Elena, but Katherine lures him and together with Damon and Stefan, they kill him. Caroline uses her blood to save Matt after Dr. Jonas attack, and he is confused with the revelation. Alaric does not tell the truth about Isobel to Jenna, and she has a surprising visitor at Elena's house.

"The House Guest" is another great episode of "The Vampire Diaries". This time, Katherine is responsible for the best moments of the show. I liked the destruction of Dr. Jonas Martin and I believe that Caroline will need to compel Matt since he is not prepared for the truth. My vote is eight.
