I do love the mini cliffhangers each week on The Vampire Diaries, but this week’s just so rich! Caroline finally sees her captor, the guy who wants to kill all those terrible vampire monsters, and the ONE guy that Mrs. Lockwood calls just happens to be her Dad? I can picture all the giggling going on in the writers room when they came up with that one.
Then there’s Klaus, who wasn’t able to execute his dastardly plan and turn the werewolves into hybrids. He did everything! Oh, except that...erm we better not say anything. He could be listening.
“The Hybrid” turned out to be a real pleasant surprise. I loved this episode. Not that I don’t like watching any Vampire Diaries episodes, but sometimes there are those episodes where the twists happen so fast you wonder how you ended up on a country road in the mountains. Sometimes it gets queasy.
I was especially worried since this was such a loaded script. The challenge bestowed upon this week’s writers was to weave four very different and complex stories into one episode and make it easy to watch. Al Septien and Turi Meyer did it perfectly. The seamless transition between Jeremy and Matt, Tyler and his mother, Klaus and Stefan and Damon, Elena and Alaric didn’t happen at a frenetic and hard to follow pace. It was an very even and smooth riding episode that paid off in big ways for those that followed it through all the way to the end. It’s so rare to be rewarded like that in any television show, but The Vampire Diaries constantly makes it happen.
