The Vampire Diaries: ‘Original Sin’ RECAP
I can’t even begin to comprehend what I just watched. This week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries is confusingly cheesy…it’s like Inception and Twilight wrapped in 60 minutes. You probably don’t get what I mean by confusingly cheesy…but just watch the episode and please comment below if you understood anything that went down.
First off, Stefan having his own doppelganger was weird and convenient enough to turn me off…now Elena has a third doppelganger????? Silas’ ancient Rome lover!?!?…But she’s dead…because his original lover- Katsuya the witch not the sushi Hollywood hot spot is back and seeking revenge. So confused- what in the world is going on. Julie Plec please explain.
Katsuya is an ancient witch who now goes by the name of ‘Tessa’….she thinks it’s more modern…we’ll just go with it. She finds Stefan half dead at some bar and takes him in. Everyone has an ulterior motive and of course she’s got Stefan to do some weird witchy thing and connect to Silas. Silas is still busy looking for Katherine.
Ugh this entire episode is a train wreck…it’s so obvious they were at a crossroads and instead of taking one road they took fifty and now there are too many different elements coming together…it just makes for weird television. Damon finds Stefan with Tessa…but before he whisks his brother away to safety…Tessa shares some words of advice. She’s knows a thing about love….since Silas left her at the altar for another woman who looks exactly like Elena and Katherine, but really she was the original Elena and Katherine before because she existed before them.
Like WTF? And the best part was they tried hiding her face (Amara- the third and hopefully final Elena look alike)…they tried hiding Amara’s face at first as if we didn’t know she was going to be Nina Dobrev.
On top of all this weird duplicate doppelganger drama…Matt has some drama of his own. The woman at the end of last week’s episode…the one that killed her friend in front of Silas…she does some thing to Matt’s head and she starts talking to the guy through Matt. Apparently the guy was her lover and they just want revenge on Silas…except now they’re using Matt’s body to communicate since Matt is invincible. So our Matty has some screen time but this storyline is really weird and I’m done talking about it.
Back to Stelena and Delena…Tessa warns Damon that the entire universe is working against him and Elena because in the end…she’s meant to be with Stefan. Duh! Tessa does another witchy thing to Stefan/Silas…she connects to Silas through Stefan and basically fries Silas’ brain. He no longer has his psychic abilities so he’s just a normal….vampire? Is he a vampire or a werewolf…or neither? I don’t even understand. Damon is all insecure about his realtionship now…but Elena reassures him that it’s all good. Even if she’s dreaming about Stefan. Silas finally has a normal conversation with Katherine over the phone. She asks him why he’s chasing her and he tells her it’s because of the cure…and it’s still pumping through her blood so he wants it.
Stefan wakes up right before Delena has a moment. Elena and Damon are happy Stefan’s back…but when Stefan looks at them he has no idea who they are.
Thoughts? Or shall I say…explanations?
