'The Vampire Diaries' Recap: Ordinary People

The Vampire Diaries

This week’s episode of "The Vampire Diaries" begins with Rick and Elena trying to figure out what the cave markings underneath the Lockwood property read. They see names written in runic, a Viking script—And guess whose names they are? The original vampires: Klaus, Rebekah, and Elijah. This means that they’ve been in Mystic Falls long before the founding families. The last name on the wall? Michael. Michael as in the vampire hunter. Also as in, as Damon calls him, "Papa Original."

To find out more about the history of the original vampire family, Elena decides to see if she can get any information from Rebekah. Armed with the threat of waking Michael, Elena forces Rebekah into a corner and gives in, telling Elena to come over later for a chat.

The episode is woven with flashbacks and we get a glimpse of the original family pre-vampire stage. It’s obvious that Rebekah, Klaus, and Elijah are the chummy trio. Klaus and Elijah are engaging in a friendly swordfight when their father, Michael, takes over Elijah’s place and fights Klaus. It seems like Michael doesn’t really like Klaus, as he fights and almost kills him with force. I guess that kind of explains why he’s been hunting Klaus.  Read More...
