The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 4 “The Five” Thoughts on Love and Heartache

By Tegan O’Rourke,

Instead of the usual play by play which you can get other places. I was interested in focusing on the love and heart ache some of our favorite characters faced in this episode.

Lets start with heartsick Rebekah, aka Sexy Bex.  After following her evil brother around for a thousand years you would think she would get more than just a stake in the heart from him, again! But alas, Rebekah is beautiful with a big loving and evil heart this is why she keeps getting staked literally and figuratively.

For being one of the most powerful  women/vampires in the world, her heart seems to get in her way a lot. I will give her kudos for not compelling anyone to love her. This vamp wants the real thing and I hope she gets it. It is sometimes painful to watch her pain. But then again, that just shows what a great job Claire Holt is doing of displaying Rebekah’s inner turmoil.  I also saw Claire Holt on Season 2 of Pretty Little Liars recently and I was blown away by the difference in the two characters of Samara and  Rebekah.

Anyway, I liked the history behind “The Five” and how Rebekah got her freak on with one of them before he tried to kill her.  Sadly of course Rebekah confessed to Stefan that she really loved the Vampire Hunter who tried to wipe out her whole family. She even buried his magic sword, which may lead to the only possible way to cure vampirism with him in the church cemetery in Italy where she thought they’d be married. She is such a romantic blood sucker!

And that’s all Klaus needed to hear. Rebekah’s was like oh snap, when she spilled to Stefan who then played it cool as Big Bro gave it to her in the heart. So Sexy Bex is out of commission at least for a few episodes. When she is awakened oh and I hope when she is its by her arch nemesis Elena, I do hope Rebekah will reflect on her unwarranted loyalty to Klaus and never go down that road again.

I think Matt would be a good love match for Sexy Bex but then again the writer’s of this show always have some interesting U turns to hit us with, so let’s see what new characters emerge as the season progresses.

While Stefan was helping Klaus manipulate Rebekah, Elena and Damon were feasting on college coeds at the “Murder House” at Whitmore College. And Elena liked it, she really liked it and Damon liked that she really liked it. I loved that they liked it. Elena needs to give in more to vampire impulses. After all it’s obvious she is more like Damon and Grandma Katherine then she wants to admit.

All was getting hot and steamy until blood blocker Bonnie showed up with her look of disdain that only she can give. She even made me feel dirty.  I want to see Bonnie go all “Willow Season Six of Buffy.” I really want to see that.

What’s wife Bonnie anyway, hanging out with this creepy cute Professor Shane, who is obviously up to no good. Is her witch radar off? I hope they have a tawdry affair, the sleazier the better.

There is no doubt in my mind that Elena and Damon are going to get together and Bonnie is going to hate it.  Can’t Wait!
