“The Murder of One,” Episode 3.18 of “The Vampire Diaries,” will again focus on Damon and Stefan with a murderous scheme and a plan in action. I do seem to recall these Salvatore plans rarely go well…
As we left off last week, Damon and Stefan had the sign of the Wickery Bridge, which was made from the original white oak tree. The same tree that can kill original vampires, like Klaus and Rebekah. Another big bonus, thanks to the earlier spell that binds all the originals, if one dies, they all die.
Got all that? Good, because “The Murder of One” takes all that prior mythology and runs with it. According to Executive Producer Julie Plec in her weekly preview, “All our heroes have to do is get one…which is harder than it looks.”
Klaus is back (yay!) with a scheme to force Bonnie to help him, as is his older brother Finn and one very pissed off sister Rebekah. She’s still smarting from Damon’s little stunt last week, and decides torture will be the ideal punishment for the elder Salvatore. “The phrase, ‘Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ definitely applies to Rebekah,” says Plec. This puts Damon out of action for the big originals hunt, but no fear, Stefan, Elena, Matt, and Caroline are on the job. They have a bag full of white stakes and a half baked plan. Let the fun begin!
Here’s the official description of “The Murder of One” from The CW:
SAVIOR OF THE CURSED AND THE DAMNED – Damon and Stefan focus on a new project that will bring them closer to destroying Klaus, and they quickly bring Elena , Caroline and Matt in on the plan. After Klaus threatens someone close to Bonnie, she has no choice but to work on the spell he needs. Meanwhile, Klaus and Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) find the perfect motivator to convince Finn (guest star Caspar Zafer) to cooperate with them, but Rebekah is more interested in her own brutal plan to take revenge on Damon. Stefan’s emotional turmoil leads him to a dangerous confrontation with Klaus and, later, to a heartbreaking moment with Elena. J. Miller Tobin directed the episode written by Caroline Dries.
