The Vampire Diaries “The Departed” Review

When I said I kind of wished Elena would die, I didn’t think it would actually happen! ‘The Departed’ seemingly saw the end of Klaus when VampiRic staked him. Rebecca and Elijah decide that since Elena and VampiRic’s lives are linked, she’s fair game and they will have to kill her. They succeed, thanks to the death trap that is Wickery Bridge, but when Damon rushes to the hospital to see her body, Doc Fell has a surprise for him — when Elena fell ill earlier that day, she gave her vampire blood. The episode ends with Elena waking up, presumably as a vampire…

And yet that wasn’t even the craziest part of this episode. We also saw that Klaus’ death didn’t kill any of our beloved vampires, nor did it kill Tyler. Since Tyler is a direct creation of Klaus, we could have assumed this was down to him being part werewolf. But there’s a good chance none of them died because Klaus is actually still alive. How? Bonnie pulled an Esther and bodyswapped Tyler and Klaus. While this is good news for the Scrappy gang (yay, they live) and Klaus (yay, he gets to make out with Caroline), it’s decidedly bad news for Tyler.
