This episode was all Caroline's, from her super human snooping at the Founders Day picnic to her handily kicking Mason's ass to her takedown of Stefan's and Damon's captors, including her own mother. No, it certainly doesn't get yummier than this in Mystic Falls.
Truth be told, I didn't like Caroline at all the first season. She was a whiny, indulged and indulgent princess and I coun't understand what Elena would see in her. What a difference a bit of Damon's blood, along with a suffocation at the hands of Katherine, does for a girl. Sure, she can still be a bit whiny. After all, being turned does make those character quirks a bit stronger. But girlfriend has some backbone and I can't wait for the day she finally lets loose on Katherine.
Speaking of which, Homegirl gets around, doesn't she? Not too shabby for someone who is 160+ years old. We always knew she was messing with Damon emotionally and likely Stefan as well but did anyone see the twist with Mason coming? I sure didn't. I thought Mason was smarter than to get involved with a literal man eater like Katherine . . . but this definitely puts a spin on things.
What is the deal with that moonstone? Bonnie who? And where is Alaric?
