Elijah is fucking back, FINALLY. Spoiler after the break.
Finally an episode of TVD that left me wanting more. Even when Jeremy died it felt more like "Well he served his purpose" lets move on. Jeremy's death just seemed to be the only way the writers could bust out the emotionless Elena. And now someone interesting has the freaking cure. What will Elijah do? Give it to Klaus so his little brother can stay a hybrid and get Katherine her freedom? Or give it to Silas to kill him? Or fulfill his little sister's wishes to be mortal?
If there is a character I love more than Damon, it's Elijah. He is just so good. And I am so happy he got the freaking insufferable cure. And I don't know if it's the writing for him, or the way Daniel Gillies portrays him but he has amazing scenes with everyone.That scene where he is talking to Elena about her compassion as a human was one of the most interesting things I have seen since Elena has turned off her emotions.
Also I finally didn't want to stab myself for the first time seeing Caroline and Klaus be together which is a step up. I don't know what has happened, but the writing for that last two episodes have improved drastically. If Elijah is sticking around for the Originals pilot then I will suffer through Klaus to see him be proper and compelling.
