In the future with Damon and Alaric going to save a future Caroline so a future Stefan doesn’t walk into a trap. Damon does instead. This is not good planning! Why do they always fail to plan?! Why?
Anyway in the present we’re finding out if Caroline has been mystically impregnated with her teacher’s babies – and my gods that is wrong on so many levels. On top of this we have the weirdness of a pregnant vampire. Apparently she’s not pregnant and neither of them consider whether pregnancy tests even work on vampires (I guess this answers the question whether vampires urinate?)
Matt is still faced with the huge number of people who have been compelled to hang around the abandoned high school and give blood – why anyone would do this seems to confuse Matt and Caroline. More of them are all gathering in the Grill
What confuses Matt is that there’s no bite marks, the humans are being “fattened up” with supplements to make them extra bloody….
…I will forever hate this show for making me type this sentence. Fattening up a blood supply? Really?
And Caroline has morning sickeness.
They decide to ask Valerie to syphon off all the compulsion but she doesn’t see the point – they’ll just be replaced. She does it anyway. Valerie continues to insist Caroline is pregnant
And Beau appears. They fight – and Caroline, Matt and Valerie use magic to hide. Fighting Beau I replaced with Valerie and Caroline with Caroline asking how she knows about the baby switching spell anyway. It turns out Valerie used the spell to try and save her own baby though it didn’t work.
Stefan’s master plan to bring down Julian now involves inviting Lily to thanksgiving dinner. Damon is as bemused by this nonsense as me. He’s also pissed off because, of course, Lily is responsible for Elena being all Sleeping Beauty and Stefan has kind of tromped all over that by inviting Lily. And Stefan tries to openly convince Lily her true love is bad.
Which is hard in the Vampire Diaries world, because everyone is evil.
Stefan tells Lily about Julian beating Valerie into a miscarriage – Lily doesn’t believe anything Valerie says because it’s easier not to believe it and Stefan vervains her. That’ll be convincing.
