Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Bonnie Bennett (credit only)
Alaric Saltzman (as Matt Davis)


Tyler finds his mother vervain-poisoned his beloved Caroline, realizes she ignores his cursed paternal heritage and shows her, chaining himself down at fall moon for transformation. Assisted by will-less Stefano, Klaus forces torture-wounded Ray to betray his werewolf pack so he can bite them to create a hybrid army, but it fails, the spell having been crossed by Elena's secret resuscitation. Damon reluctantly follows Alaric and Elena, who recruited him to search for Stefano, wisely acting as backup. Jeremy, who is haunted by Vicky, gets initially reluctant Matt to help him magically conjure his late sister's ghost, which however yields scary warnings as well as pleas. Written by KGF Vissers

The Spoiled Elena
9 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the day of full moon, Klaus and Stefan force Ray Sutton to tell the location of his pack and Klaus forces them to drink his blood and then he kills them expecting to form an army of hybrids but something goes wrong and he questions what could be since he killed the werewolf, the vampire and the doppelganger to get rid off the curse. Meanwhile Tyler discovers that his mother has poisoned Caroline with verbena and he brings Mrs. Lockwood to the cell to see his transformation. Elena finds the location of the pack and forces Alaric to hike the mountains with her. Out of the blue, Damon arrives warned by Alaric and they are attacked by Ray that escaped from Klaus and Stefan. Jeremy is haunted by Vicky and decides to help her; however Anna advises him to not do any move since she is dangerous.

In "The hybrid", the spoiled Elena forces Alaric to go to a place with Klaus and a pack of werewolf in a night of full moon. The behavior of this eighteen year-old character is ridiculous, taking the most absurd decisions usually with dark consequences for her friends. What is happening with Jeremy is intriguing and the revelation of who Bill is has surprised me. My vote is eight.
