Entering the Unknown

There’s more unknowns going into “The Last Day”, tonight’s episode of Vampire Diaries, than there were in the Bin Laden assassination. All joking aside, I can’t even begin to contemplate what will exactly happen tonight. Last week completely threw me for a loop. I suppose I have this inability to really open my mind and think outside of what appears, to step beyond reality and truly expand into the impossible, which isn’t always impossible.

When I read that some of the favorites and the regulars would die, I didn’t contemplate that it could possibly be by way of becoming a vampire. And as much as I fell that Jenna much like Matt, was an expendable character, she quickly proved her ability to cope with the unexplainable. How many of you thought Jenna was a bad ass protector when she aimed that crossbow at Alaric? And she even did it with a steady hand! Go Jenna!

It’s an interesting twist turning her into a vampire and it shows the cunning of Klaus to always plan for the unexpected. My first instinct was that he was going to use Katherine, but that would be much too easy. He wants her to suffer as much as possible. Then Damon came along and I thought for sure, Damon would be the sacrifice, but you can’t use him if he’s tainted. Which leads me to his werewolf bite. I had an inkling that something happened when Tyler jumped him, I just hoped that what I suspected was not true. There has to be a cure for the wolf bite, because Damon, much like Stefan and Elena, is an integral part of this show. I can’t imagine Julie and Kevin writing Damon out, but wouldn’t it be a twist none of us were expecting?

Then there’s the whole “Elena drank vampire blood” monkey wrench. Klaus now knows this, but it seems to not bother him. He can’t proceed with the curse with her not being “pure”, or can he? My brain is honestly exhausted with trying to figure all of this out. Bonnie still has her role to play, there’s still something more for her to do in order to save Elena’s life. And then there’s Uncle John. I really wish this man would do something selfless and think about others. I’m curious as to how he’s going to react at Jenna being turned into a vampire. Is he going to try to kill her should she survive this sacrifice? I would hope that he knows how important she is to Elena, she’s been the next closest thing to a mom that Elena has ever had. And it’s partially John’s fault for Jenna being in the condition she’s in. He didn’t have to taunt her with a little secret he knew Alaric was keeping and incite her. He could have protected her, but he didn’t. On the same token, I don’t think he ever considered the fact that Jenna would be hurt to this extent, so I’m hoping this really impacts him and wakes him up. It’s unlikely, but I can always hope.

As for the rest of the gang, I’m disappointed that Tyler’s part was brief before he turned into a wolf. I was hoping for more dialogue between him and Caroline. I suppose that could come soon, if they both survive that is. And I must say that Matt really changed my impression of him drastically. I can’t believe he did what he did. He’s able to see beyond what Caroline has become. It wasn’t her choice and he knows that she wasn’t the one to harm Vicki. Last week’s episode, Matt grew up a lot.

So, what’s going to happen this week? I can’t even begin to think about it. I can’t contemplate what will happen tonight. It seems that every time I have an idea as to what’s going to happen, I’m only partially right and then I’m confounded by the reality of what Kevin and Julie can do with these characters. Stay tuned for tonight to see who survives the sacrifice.
