VAMPIRE DIARIES: 2.04 “Memory Lane”
Anyway, in this episode we learned a little bit more into Katherine and the Salvatore brothers’ past. Stefan manages to trap Katherine in his basement and tries to find out why she is really here. Katherine continues to tell him that she is here because of him. Flashback to 1864 and we see Stefan telling Katherine that he is in love with her before he ever knew she was a vampire. Therefore, Katherine did not compel him to fall in love with her. This scene also shows Katherine using her powers on Damon, which Damon said never happened.
Meanwhile, at Elena’s house, Jenna decided to throw a barbeque. The guest list consisted of herself, Elena, Alaric, Damon, Mason, and Caroline. I thought this was a little random until we learned that Jenna and Mason went to high school together. And of course, Damon and Alaric wanted to learn more about Mason. Damon believed werewolves are not able to touch silver and ends up trying to kill Mason after the party with a silver knife, but surprisingly (or not) this is only a myth, so Mason lives.
And Caroline had a hidden agenda as well. Katherine seems to have gotten to Caroline and is trying to make her break up Stefan and Elena. I must say Caroline made some valid points to Elena about the future of her and Stefan’s relationship. And her plan appears to have worked because at the end of the episode Elena and Stefan get in a fight and appear to have broken up. Although we find out at the very end that the break up was staged to fool Katherine and Caroline.
So, the question remains, will Katherine believe Stefan and Elena are no longer together? Personally, I don’t think she’ll be fooled. And what is going to happen with Mason and Damon now that Damon tried to kill Mason? I’m curious to see how this plays out.
