Elena Gilbert: [Elena moves to lay by Damon and hold his hand] No. You don't.

Great Conclusion of the Second Season
7 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Damon asks Elena to forgive him for biting her but she does not accept his apologies. Soon Damon is raving and he has daydreams with his life with Katherine in the past and Elena in the present. Stefan tells Elena Damon's condition and she decides to seek him out. Stefan meets Bonnie and discovers that Klaus might save his brother and he looks for Klaus. Meanwhile Jeremy finds Damon and brings him to the Grill; however Sheriff Forbes shoots Damon but hits Jeremy instead and he dies. Alaric brings Jeremy's body and Bonnie tries to resurrect him using her witch powers, but there is a side effect. Stefan meets Katherine in the apartment and out of the blue, Klaus arrive with Elijah. Stefan learns that Klaus's blood can save his brother and he accepts the horrible condition imposed by Klaus to save his brother.

"As I Lay Dying" is a great conclusion of the Second Season. The twist with Stefan's behavior may be highly interesting and change the fates of Elena and other characters. Jeremy's vision seeing dead people is also promising. Klaus bringing Elijah close to his family was predictable. My vote is nine.
