The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 Back at ’s house, she’s reading a Charlaine Harris novel — I believe it’s “Grave Secret,” the fourth and last in her Harper Connelly series, which is worth reading — when a flash of light illuminates the room for a second. She goes to the front door, and it’s Claudine, who wants to take her away to fairyland/gremlinville. Nuh-uh, says. “We can keep you safe!” Claudine says. “When have you ever kept me safe?,” wants to know. Apparently the night the Rattrays attacked her in the parking lot, Claudine was there to pull the chain extra-tight around Mac Rattray’s neck. (Oh, is this like footprints in the sand?) Just then returns, smells full- The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 blown fae and starts chowing down on Claudine. begs him to stop, but the light fades from Claudine’s body, and she reverts to her gremlin self, and then turns to ash. “You just killed my fairy godmother!” cries. : “I’m sorry.” And he sounds like he almost means it.
The third in ’s fifth , “Whatever I Am, You Made Me” really got the ball rolling. At this point, I’m used to taking three-quarters of a to develop conflicts, and then taking its final few s to let them detonate. This , though, seems like it’s going to pick up fast, and what began as a series of separate problems are slowly beginning to entangle into one big and The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 y mess. That’s how we like it!
The opened with bushbaby (Rutina Wesley) gazing up at the night sky, looking all wide-eyed, as if she had never seen the night sky before. She’s a vampire now, and everything is heightened. We haven’t really seen this side to the vampire instinct on yet. We’ve caught glimpses of what nature could be like when human characters used V, but for a second there you would have thought appreciated being a vampire, especially after her face wound healed. (Anna Paquin) and (Nelsan Ellis) come barreling through the woods, The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 chasing after her like a couple of hooligans, and it’s no wonder wants to get away from them.
Back in front of the Authority, (Stephen Moyer) and (Alexander Skarsgård) are feeling pretty good! The council is torn, but they seem to have the key players on their side. Roman (Christopher Meloni) and Salome (Valentine Cervi) know that the world cannot know that Russell was not executed, as Nan had previously announced. Roman has worked hard, and doesn’t want his legacy erased. Later, they wire and up with special The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 heart monitors, in the shape of crosses, that can tell everything from who they’ve eaten for breakfast to whether or not they should meet the death. With the use of an app, they can become goo if the council sees fit. Side note: I thoroughly enjoyed the girl who harnessed them in and explained the rules. It was like she was the employee explaining to two little boys how to behave while playing laser tag at one of those party places. Also, the council has replaced Nan with Reverend Newlin (Michael McMillian)! They’re hoping to tap into a new demographic with him on The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 board, and they need someone to smooth talk if Russell rears his hungry head. They made good usage of overhead lighting here, making it seem as though he had an actual halo. Roman recognizes that humans are the ancestors of vampires, not just meat. The vampire bible can’t win, but will indeed start, a civil war.
At Fangtasia, ’s speakers are blaring “Bood for Poppies” by Garbage, while (Kristen Bauer van Straten) texts very quickly, even more quickly than a high school queen bee! The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 storms in looking for more favors, and isn’t having it. She alerts that is missing, as is , and that it probably has something to do with her. ures her she’s mistaken, and wants her help reigning in . kicks her out, but not before a little tiff takes place between the two. really has a handle on that glow attack this , huh?
is worried is going to spill the beans about them killing Debbie Pelt, but is more concerned with finding somewhere to sleep before dawn. Never fear, ( Trammell) is here! runs to looking for , and boy does she drink some , lots of it! manages to find somewhere safe for to sleep, the meat freezer, and promises to keep her secret safe. He won’t tell or The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 that he’s helping her. That lasts for a few hours, until and show up in a huff. manages to pry into ’s thoughts, and somewhere between thoughts about her boobs, she gets a tip. He confesses, and admits he doesn’t blame for helping have another shot at life. He sort of wishes he done so with Tommy. I kind of miss Tommy special brand of debauchery, actually! R.I.P. Tommy Mickens!
(Carrie Preston) and (Todd Lowe) are still at odds over ’s recent jolt of jack behavior. She’s frustrated that he’s keeping war secrets, and she knows something bad is brewing. He refuses to give in, but says goodbye before he leaves on his secret mission with The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 Patrick. She won’t be waiting when he comes back! Just give her a little something, . It’s been five s of this supernatural drama, she can handle a little something!
At the police station, Debbie’s parents show up looking for answers. Also, (Chris Bauer) discovers that ’s (Lauren Bowles) sons posted the naked pic of him they took while he was asleep on Facebook! Isn’t it sort of strange they posted that pic of the knowing their The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 mom was sleeping naked right next to him? Later, confronts her, but he doesn’t seem too mad. He uses it as an ice breaker to ask her to “go steady.” It’s only a matter of time now before that weird fairy sex he had last comes back to bite him in the , right? I hope doesn’t bite the bullet because of whatever deal he struck.
