Klaus completes his preparations to break the moon curse by luring Tyler home to visit his mother after a non-accidental fall. The Salvatore brothers bicker worse then ever over how to protect Elena, who wants to take risks by doing things Elijah's way, which will kill her but relies on an ancient resuscitation elixir. Stefan takes her away on a 'last day' excursion. Matt finds helping the sheriff with Caroline just about unbearable.

The Back-up
6 November 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Damon is worried with Elena's fate and bites her to make her come back after her death. Maddax uses a spell to force Mrs. Lockwood to have an accident to bring Tyler back home. Matt is not comfortable with the situation with Caroline and he tells Sheriff Forbes. Caroline and Tyler visit his mother but they are captured by the witch Greta. Damon visits Katherine to know where the werewolf is and Katherine tells that he is with Caroline in the tombs. Maddox attacks Damon, but he is saved by Matt that is seeking out Caroline. Damon rescues Tyler and Caroline, but Tyler initiates the transformation and bites his arm. Klaus takes Caroline with him. Damon tells that he has abducted the werewolf to stop him, but Klaus shows his Plan B. Katherine tells that she was forced to call someone to replace Caroline.

"The Last Day" is one of the best episodes of this show. It is impressive the unrequited love of Damon for Elena. His ultimate attitude to save her was very clever but what will happen with the werewolf bite on his arm? The conflictive behavior of Matt saves Damon from the evil Maddox. Klaus is very smart and Damon was naive challenging him. My vote is nine.
