The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 2 The Hybrid Recap
By Tegan O’Rourke, previosuly posted on The Supernatural Weekly
Main thought on “The Hybrid”, Thank God, that plot line is over! Why would Klaus need or want a hybrid army? It just doesn’t jive. He is all powerful and yet he seems lonely at the top. I want to see an intense Bromance between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley).
The Urban Dictionary describes bromance as “the complicated love and affection shared by two straight males.” Ya I want to see more of that! Maybe we’ll get lucky and they will ride bikes together shirtless.
Stefan needs more stuff to brood about. He is so cute when he broods. I’m currently brooding over Bonnie. Why is Bonnie missing? I heard Kat Graham just wrote a book of poems called “The Blue Sky Chronicles.” You Go Girl!
The episode centered on Elena, Alaric and Damon heading into Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains to track Stefan. Meanwhile Klaus tries to turn a bunch of freaked out werewolves into vampire/werewolf hybrids. Luckily they all die since the lifting of the curse was ruined by Elena coming back to life. I was worried that Klaus saw it in tortured Stefan’s face for a second there.
The idea of Damon trying to subdue the wolf that got away seemed crazy to me since he almost died last season due to a wolf bite. Thankfully Elena can’t live without Damon anymore than she can’t live without Stefan so she decided it was time to leave as it grew dark.
Back in Mystic Falls Tyler (Michael Trevino) realizes his mother has abducted Caroline (Candice Accola) and forces Mayor Lockwood to watch him turn into a werewolf. After seeing what a monster her son is, she becomes a hypocrite and calls on Vampire Hunter Bill to call off the intended staking. But Bill won’t budge all vamps must die; no exceptions not even his daughter, Caroline! But don’t worry folks, based on next week’s preview it looks like Daddy Bill may just torture or pray the vampire out of her.
Jeremy (Stephen R. McQueen) tries to convince Matt (Zach Roerig) to help him contact Vicky who tells Jeremy she can come back. Then Anna shows up telling Jeremy not to trust Vicky. I think this is just a ghostly cat fight personally.
My favorite scene of the night was Damon showing up in Elena’s bedroom after they safely returned from the werewolf adventure, which provided some great dialogue for romance buffs. “When I drag my brother from the edge and bring him back to you I want you to remember the things you felt when he was gone.” Damon knowing that Elena is developing feelings for him, needed to hear Elena admit she cares for him.
Best line of the night, when Damon tells Elena about Stefan killing Andie Starr, “Happy Birthday Elena, Stefan killed Andie, cake?”
Hopes for next week, the return of Katherine, Bonnie and Elijah, seeing Stefan go further down the rabbit hole and more details into the appearances of every dead vampire girl, Jeremy ever dated.
