plot point described turned out not to be true in later episodes
** Even worse, [[spoiler: because of her doppleganger nature, Elena can't feed on animals or from blood bags. Meaning Elena has no choice but to bite people, running the very real risk of killing someone.]]

* [[spoiler: Elena being compelled by Rebekah to confess her true feelings for the Salvatore brothers. She admits that she's in love with Damon - sire bond or no - , and that while she loves Stefan, she's not ''in'' love with him anymore, because he sees her vampiric existence as a mistake to be fixed.]] ** And Stefan's reaction to this? [[spoiler: To ask Rebekah to ''erase every memory he has of Elena. Because forgetting her entirely is preferable to dealing with his heartbreak.'']]

** I think the saddest thing about this is [[spoiler: Kol's last conversation with Rebekah and Klaus. Rebekah, he tried to kill in his insane determination not to have Silas raised. Klaus, he called up and accused of plotting his death when he was in Elena's house. And Elijah? He's so filled with disgust with the rest of his siblings that he hasn't even been seen since season three. Kol died, not knowing that Klaus was rushing over to save him, and that his brother and sister did love him despite everything they've done to each other.]]

** To elaborate: [[spoiler: Jeremy is killed, permanently this time. His ring won't bring him back again, since as a Hunter he counted as a supernatural creature. Elena is in denial for the whole episode, waiting and waiting for the one hope she has, that Bonnie will find a way to bring him back. And when that fails, Elena ''snaps'' as it dawns on her that her little brother - the only family she has left in the world - is gone for good. She asks Damon to take his body downstairs, so that she can douse it - and the whole house - in lighter fuel so she can burn everything down.]] --->'''[[spoiler: Elena]]''': [[spoiler: We need a cover story, right? You think I didn't hear you guys talking earlier? Well, what are we gonna say...'animal attack? Tumble down the stairs?' No, we burn the house down with him inside of it.]] --->'''Stefan''': [[spoiler: Elena]], stop it! --->'''[[spoiler: Elena]]: [[spoiler: Why?! Because you want me to not be in denial? You want me to face the truth? This is the truth, Stefan! I don't wanna live here anymore! (continues to pour lighter fluid) I don't want these sketches! I don't want this X-Box! (brings out bourbon from the cabinet, smiles insanely) Not gonna need this bourbon anymore, right? (voice wavering) I mean, Alaric's not here to drink it, I mean...unless you guys are willing to bring back every supernatural creature on the other side to get him back? (turns to Damon) Would you?! I know you want your drinking buddy back. (walks and stands in front of him) Would you, Damon?...(starts crying) Because I wouldn't. (moves to Jeremy's body, pours the bourbon all over it) I don't know, does that make me a bad person? I-I have no idea...(takes Jeremy's ring off, stares at it and tosses it to Damon). He's not gonna need that anymore]] --->'''Caroline (hysterically)''': [[spoiler: Elena, stop it! You're scaring me!]]

*** [[spoiler: And then Damon makes her turn off her humanity before she has a complete breakdown. Yet, she still burns the house down anyway, because 'it's the best cover story' and she doesn't want to come to this house anymore. Her grief and sorrow is still that complete, even with her emotions gone.]] *** [[spoiler: Matt's reaction when he sees Jeremy's body. He tries to help Elena see through her denial, and has to be strong for everyone else. It's only when he's alone that he falls to pieces.]]

He's suffering so much that he's begun to hallucinate conversations with Damon, who ''begs'' him to turn off his humanity so that - at the least - he won't care about being made to drown for eternity.]] * [[spoiler: Katherine in 5.02. The resignation in her voice when she tells Matt and Jeremy that she understands - "I'm the leverage, I'm the object, I'm the thing everyone wants." As a human, all she was was the Doppleganger to Klaus, and as a vampire, she became the number one name on Klaus' shit-list and has been running ever since.]] * [[spoiler: Matt's brief sojourn into the other side, when he finds Bonnie there and slowly realizes that she's dead. Even worse, once he jumps back into his body, he doesn't remember meeting her, and goes back to thinking that she's alive.]]
