As the title of the episode implies we are embarking on a brave new world for everyone. Caroline is a vamp and she knows it. When she wakes up it does not take her long to realize that she was smothered, should be dead, but is up and craving blood. She steals some stored blood and ends up drinking from a nurse after working some vamp voodoo on her. Matt comes to visit and just finds it only slightly odd that the thought of sunlight makes Caroline recoil. Caroline uses her vamp voodoo to get released at night (you know to avoid combusting) and heads out the Mystic Falls carnival.
Damon is still all broody and heartbroken and tells Stefan that Katherine is his problem since she loves him and came back for him. Damon has a moment with Jeremy where he shows him how easily his little immortality ring can be taken and how truly vulnerable he is. Jeremy is freaked but keeps on moving cause that’s what Jeremy does. Damon, lucky boy, is also one of the first to realize what Caroline has become. He wants to kill her and put her out of her misery but Elena doesn’t want him too so Stefan wants her to live too.
Caroline makes her fatal mistake when she attacks a carni that witchy Bonnie was crushing on. Caroline is bleeding him dry when Damon pops up to stake her. Elena steps between Damon and Caroline, and we all know Damon can’t hurt the woman he loves so he backs off. Bonnie happens on the scene and is none to happy to see her dead crush and newly vamped best friend. She is pissed so who does she blame…Damon! Because according to Bonnie everything is Damon’s fault. She uses her witchy powers and makes him collapse and then turns on a hose that is apparently filled with gasoline (IDK where that came from, it looked like a garden hose) and attempts to burn up Damon. Caroline intervenes and saves him. Bonnie is still pissed. I really hope she gets over this, it just makes me angry to see her trying to hurt someone so beautiful 🙂
So that’s it kids, whats next? Will Caroline’s mom realize what she is, will Stefan teach her the vamping ways, can she live without human blood? Check in next week to find out!
