Oh, super. Another perfectly excellent plan to get rid of the Originals fails, Bonnie whines like it’s a championship sport, and we all find out that if Klaus dies, Tyler dies. Sigh.
After yet another episode of supremely irritating threats delivered in gratingly self-satisfied accents and backed up with a bit of sadism and torture… frankly, I’m thinking “See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya, Tyler.” But no doubt Elena and co will take a different view, given the other high, um, stakes (sorry) involved.
Hurrumph. Even Caroline’s lovely scene with Alaric – with her empathy and kindness a welcome contrast to Bonnie’s self-righteous self-absorption – wasn’t enough to save this episode from being incredibly tiresome and frustrating. Diaries can do a lot better.
