Storyline

Klaus takes Stefan to Chicago, where he wants to resuscitate his sister Rebekah, who might hold the key to breaking the curse. Gradually, Stefan is reminded of his Prohibition period affair with her her while still bloodthirsty himself, and its tragic end. Tyler is rightly worried, turning for an ally to her mother sheriff Forbes, about the whereabouts of Caroline, whose bully father Bill actually holds her in a dungeon for 'vampire aversion therapy' of the most flagrant kind. Katherine puts Damon on feared Klaus's trail, so he can mount a rescue with Elena after putting her in her place. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Elena Gilbert: Where were you in the 1920's? Paving the way for women's liberation?
Damon Salvatore: I was around. Chicago's a big city. Stefan was a cocky ripper douche. But i could avoid him and still indulge in a few Daisy Buchanan's of my own.
Elena Gilbert: Ugh. Where are you going?
Damon Salvatore: His old stomping ground.
Elena Gilbert: I'm coming with you!
Damon Salvatore: No. You stay here and whip an actual plan. I'll come back when I find him.

Why Stefan is the Chosen
12 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Caroline is tortured by her father Bill that wants to make her control her impulse for blood; however she is rescued by Sheriff Forbes and Tyler. Klaus takes Stefan to Chicago to meet the witch Gloria to help him to break the curse. Gloria tells that Rebekah might have what she needs. Klaus revives his sister Rebekah, for whom Stefan had a crush in the 20's. Soon Stefan learns that Klaus compelled him to forget Rebekah and him and Gloria needs the necklace that he gave to Elena for the witchcraft.

"The End of the Affair" explains why Stefan was chosen by Klaus. However there is a flaw in this explanation since Klaus's original idea was to ask Gloria to help him to break the curse. Only when Gloria requested the necklace is that he decided to resuscitate his sister. The reaction of Sheriff Forbes was a good surprise of the show. My vote is seven.
