My Review of The Vampire Diaries 3.13- Bringing Out the Dead

That was a momentous episode.  The origins of the Petrova doppelganger were revealed, Caroline is struck by tragedy, an ongoing mystery is revealed, and a family is reunited.

Apparently the Petrova doppelganger have been dividing brothers for centuries.  Katerina and Elena have both divided Damon and Stefan and the original Petrova (Tatia) divided Klaus and Elijah.  In fact, it was her blood that was in the wine that transformed the Originals into vampires.  I am going to guess that is the reason why the blood of the doppelganger is needed to make hybrids.  Since the Petrova blood was used to make vampires in the first place, it is linked to the curse and is therefore necessary.  Talk about a lot to take in.

Klaus' family is now reunited.  Damon and Elijah removed the daggers from Kol, Finn, and Rebekah.  Hail, hail, the gang's all here.  And this cannot be good news.  Rebekah is justifiably pissed off at Elena for daggering her and Kol and Finn are out for revenge against Klaus because he daggered them.  And now Mommy dearest is back in the picture.  Turns out Mommy was in the locked coffin and she was freed by Bonny and her mom.  Mommy Original (never caught a name) has forgiven Klaus for his crimes and wants to bring the family back together.  So the question on everyone's mind is "Is anybody safe now?"  I would say that the answer is not a good one.

Did everyone else enjoy that dinner party as much as I did?  The veiled (and not so veiled) threats, the verbal knife twisting, the fights, and general male bitchiness made for an entertaining meal.  A deal was almost struck, but I think it is now null and void.

Let us now pause for a moment to express our mourning at the passing of Caroline's dad.  He was stabbed with a knife while he still had vampire blood in his system and, due to his strong beliefs, he refused to drink blood to complete the transformation and has now passed away.  I feel so sorry for Caroline.  At least she got to spend a good day with her dad before the end.  Wish it could have been more, because he was an awesome character, but all good things must come to an end.

We almost lost Alaric too, but Elena killed him and because she is a supernatural creature, he came back to join us.  I have to admit that I honestly thought he was a goner.  I am really glad he is not though.  The question here is: Who is killing members of the Council?  It would seem to be a human, but who?  Dr. Fell was a suspect until we found out that she was in surgery when Alaric was attacked.  The other interesting thing is that all of the attacks have been done with Alaric's weapons.  Not good.  Not good at all.

It was nice to see Matt back.  He really needs to be around more.  He is a great support system for our group as everything keeps falling apart.

Next week, Klaus throws a party and everyone's invited.....
