Storyline

Klaus panics as shape-shifter Silas stabbed him with a splinter of the white oak stake. Caroline reluctantly agrees to remove it, if he allows Tyler to return safely, but then Klaus realizes what trick was actually played on him. The Salvatore brothers and Rebekah capture Katehrine, who was to meet Elijah, hoping he would reconcile her with Klaus. They let Elena, who demonstrates murderously to have no interest in resuming her sweet human(e) persona, take her place, but Elijah quickly sees trough their ploy. Katherine escapes but is caught and Damon finds where she hid the cure, but she gets await again while Rebekah seizes it, only to be disappointed. Written by KGF Vissers
