The Vampire Diaries recap: The House Guest

Caroline told Matt she’s a vampire, Katherine took a bite out of Jonas, and Damon killed Luka with a blow torch. Just your average day on The Vampire Diaries.

On this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, The House Guest, it was witches versus vampires. And we have to say, that mind headache thing the witches do seems a lot like a super-charged brain freeze you get from a 7-11 slurpee!

The Vampire Diaries welcomes a House Guest

The Vampire Diaries: Witches vs. Vampires

Still on the hunt for the site where Emily and all the other witches died, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) decided to keep a few secrets of their own from their new house guest, Katherine (Nina Dobrev). They’ll do anything to keep the witches’ sacrificial land a secret from the annoying little vampire.

Katherine was the least of everyone’s worries, actually. Jonas and Luka conjured up a spell to get Luka into the Salvatore house undetected, so he could pull the dagger out of Elijah’s body. Remember, Elijah has to stay exactly as he is, complete with the knife still in his back, or he will come back. This backfires however, when Katherine discovers the dagger mysteriously rising from Elijah’s chest. Damon takes a blow torch to the invisible witch, killing him. Papa bear Jonas then went on the war path looking for Elena as a hostage.

The Vampire Diaries: Jonas’ destruction

Caroline (Candice Accola), Elena (also Nina Dobrev), Bonnie (Katerina Graham) and Jenna decided on a girls’ night out at the Mystic Grill where a new band was playing. Caroline was so desperate to get Matt back she took over the band’s stage and serenaded her sweetie with Eternal Flame! Who knew Candice Accola had a set of pipes?

Just as it looked like everyone was having fun and Caroline and Matt were making out in the bathroom, Jonas showed up and started a path of destruction trying to find Elena. He rendered Bonnie helpless and just as Caroline was trying to create a diversion so Stefan could get Elena home, Jonas put the hurt on Caroline. Matt tried to save her but was cut in the neck by Jonas. Truth time for Caroline — she fed him her blood!

Back at the Gilbert house, Elena goes upstairs to wash her face. Jonas turned up to snatch her but it turns out it’s not Elena — it’s Katherine. The Salvatore brothers and Katherine came up with the clever plan to switch the two girls! She kills Jonas with one bite, but not before he gives Bonnie back her powers and the secret to killing Klaus. No one but Jeremy knows this news yet. Oh, we forgot to mention, the two are now a real couple — yay!

Matt wakes up with Caroline and he demands answers. She tells him she is a vampire and he starts freaking out over his sister and how she tried to warn him. Matt thinks Caroline killed his sister. We have to wait and see how this develops, because they brilliantly left us with the image of Caroline trying to keep Matt from leaving.

After everyone is tucked in for the night and safe and sound, the Gilbert’s doorbell mysteriously rings — it’s Isobel.
