Football Player (as Matthew Murray)


The homecoming dance becomes the backdrop for a battle of lethal wits between Damon's party, including Mikael and Rebeka although not at all reconciled, and Klaus's, which fields the hybrids by diverting the party to the Lockwood mansion. Tyler surprises Caroline by stating he doesn't really mind being under Klaus's spell as hybrid, it's not worse then monthly lunatic agony as pure werewolf. Fearing even with the eternal oak stake in Mikael's hand Klaus may outsmart them, Damon secretly enlisted Katherine, but Klaus prepared the most stunning surprise. Written by KGF Vissers

Engaging Episode with Disappointing Conclusion
16 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Stephan and Rebekah lure Klaus, telling that Mikael was stabbed with a dagger by Elena and is dead as part of Damon's plan to make Klaus return to Mystic Falls to be killed by Mikael. Elena tells Damon that the plan may go wrong since Rebekah is Klaus's sister. Elena meets Rebekah in the room and she stabs the vampire on the back with the dagger.

The high school gym is flooded and the party is transferred to Tyler's house. Matt comes to take Rebekah to the party and Elena dates him. Tyler discloses that the party is Klaus's idea to celebrate Mikael's death. Klaus has also compelled several hybrids to protect the border of the house. When Mikael arrives, he cannot enter in the house and Klaus refuses to go outside. Mikael distracts Karl with Katherine posing of Elena and when Damon is ready to kill Klaus, he is saved by Stephan and Klaus kills Mikael, Later Katherine explains Stephan what really happened.

"Homecoming" is an engaging episode with a disappointing conclusion. The powerful Mikael is easily vanquished by Klaus and Katherine's attitude is unusual for a vampire that has been fleeing for five hundred years from Klaus. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Homecoming"
