Great episode that tears you apart
29 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I loved this episode so much. It was a fantastic ending to season 4 but I couldn't help but feel really sad. Alaric died awhile ago, Jeremy dies this season, Lexi in season 1 and just to rehash the heart break, they bring them back in this episode just for them to leave again (most of them). Yet the thing I can't figure out is why? (Spoiler) Why would you kill Bonnie? She's the reason why all of them are still half functioning and they kill her? Ahhh makes me mad! And then Silas is Stefan? Ahh I seriously hate this doppelganger stuff.

This episode was probably one of the most emotional charged episodes ever and the cliff hanger is seriously killing me. I recommend to those who love the show.
