1. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has a domestic side. We’re almost nervous to admit it, but our big bad wolf has become one of the most complex characters on television right now. The way that his vulnerability and villainy tangle up together is fascinating to watch. With his father out of the picture, Klaus has big plans to reunite his remaining family members — complete with a dream house in the town where they last loved each other as humans. It’s poetic, really.
5. Say goodbye. One of our favorite characters is saying goodbye to Mystic Falls — possibly forever, in a scene that totally made us cry, and is making us cry again right now, just writing about it. (We know there are rumors out there that Damon does something unpleasant to force the character out of town — this isn’t the case, Damon fans. Your boy is a true gentleman in this episode.)
Elena & Stefan Are Not Sitting in a Tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G: Elena is very, very angry with Stefan after the events of the previous episode. When Bonnie asks Elena about her wayward boyfriend, Elena resolutely declares that Stefan “betrayed us”. The two of them do interact in this episode, but will the outcome be what Stelena fans had hoped for? Elena also takes a few large and unexpected steps in this episode without consulting her allies.
Damon’s Got His Sad Face On: He may be a rogue, but Damon genuinely loves his brother, as we all know. Elena understands how much he’s grieving after Stefan screwed up their plan in the previous episode and when he finally meets up with Stefan again, he lets him know how angry and grief-stricken he is.
Tyler’s Loyalties Are Questioned: When Jeremy gets huffy with his sister and Alaric for their concern, he decides to invite Tyler inside for dinner. Elena and Alaric are both extremely wary of Tyler and his motivations because he was sired by Klaus. They ask him to explain his connection to the Original, but aren’t pleased with his answers. After all, as Elena says, “Klaus has terrorized every one of us and you’re just blindly loyal to him”. “You’re over-thinking it. I can still make my own decisions”, Tyler shoots back, upset that they’re questioning his choices like Caroline did. Can you, though, Tyler? It will soon become clear whose side Tyler is on.
Ksite has ten spoiler news for The Vampire Diaries episode 310 “The New Deal and here’s two of them:
7. Shippers will be happy. Which shippers? The CW gods said not to tell… but I can say at least three fan-groups get to see their favorite characters interacting. The choice of names that Klaus lists as “Elena’s loved ones” is also particularly interesting. And some shippers might want to get their screen-capturing software handy.
9. Heartbreaking decisions. At least one character makes a decision affecting someone else, perhaps for their own good.
For number seven, knowing my luck, it’s so not going to be any of the characters I ship. Damn.
There’s a spoiler about Jeremy that is making me more and more convinced that I’m right about my theory.
