Elena travels with Damon to Denver with two intentions: first to meet Jeremy to contact Rose to learn her bloodline and also to assess her feelings for Damon. They vanquish Kol, who is close to Jeremy, and Rose tells Jeremy to meet the vampire Mary Porter that may tell them her bloodline. However Kol arrives first and kills Mary. Meanwhile Stefan tries to bring Alaric's alter ego to find where he has hidden the last stake and Klaus uses a drastic method. Caroline meets Tyler but he does not feel good when he sees the drawing that Klaus made for her. Esther meets Rebekah at home and she dies. When Alaric tells the location of the stake in the cave where vampires cannot go, Rebekah goes with him and discloses a surprising secret.

"Heart of Darkness" is an episode where the unbearable Elena has a behavior of an easy woman in a threesome with the Salvatore's brothers. This romance is shallow and boring. The "die-non die" of the Originals is bothersome and I hope that this season ends ASAP. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Heart of Darkness"
