Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Klaus (credit only)
Rebekah (credit only)
Michael Reilly Burke ...
Pastor Young (voice)
Alaric Saltzman (as Matt Davis)


Pastor Young's posse is killed in an explosion, so sheriff and mayoress are reinstated. Tyler is back in his body and happy with Caroline, who can't help worrying constantly, while he chooses to seize the day. The Salvatore brothers disagree violently how best to help Elena, who has been turned into a vampire: either seeking Stefan's probably naive control attempts or Damon's 'short pain', while she still contemplates death as only way out. Matt provides an urgent compromise during pastor Young's memorial service, which is widely attended, also by his niece April and outsider Connor Jordan, whom Damon correctly mistrusted as he's a seasoned, well-armed slayer. Written by KGF Vissers

Suspense, thrill, emotion. All in one.
19 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Another superb episode. Definitely deserves a 10 on 10. From the very beginning to the end it was perfection. Amazing plot, suspense and emotion. "Elena is having problems keeping animal blood down. So, quite unexpectedly she turns to Damon for help. She drink's from him, which according to Damon is kind of personal. Connor Jordan's mystery tattoo has really got me excited. Hope to see more of Jeremy in action(yes! he's one of my favorite character. Damon's way of mourning Alaric was so Damon-ish." Be it Tyler's courage during memorial or Alaric's "I miss you too, buddy," TVD is definitely going to get better. And by better, I mean really really good.
