The Vampire Diaries Recap: Season 4 Episode 2 “Memorial” 10/17/12

Tonight on the CW my favorite show The Vampire Diaries airs with a whole new episode called “Memorial.” On tonight’s show Elena tries to cope with the extreme highs and lows that are part of becoming a vampire, and Stefan and Damon fight about what is best for her.  Did you see last week’s premiere episode?  We did and we recapped it here for you.

On last week’s premiere episode Elena awakened on the morning after the accident to find the thing she dreaded most had come true – she died with vampire blood in her system and now she had to go through the terrible transition to become a vampire…or face certain death. Stefan promises Elena that he and Bonnie will exhaust every possible way out of the situation, but Damon was furious with his brother for letting Elena die in the first place.

On tonight’s show Elena tries to cope with being a vampire and all the extreme highs and lows that are part of it,  and Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) almost come to blows while arguing about what is best for her. Damon decides to help Elena in his own way and asks her not to tell Stefan. A stranger, Connor Jordan, arrives in town and begins questioning Sheriff Forbes and Mayor Lockwood. Connor’s actions quickly convince Stefan that they are dealing with a dangerous vampire hunter.

Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) are surprised to see a girl they used to know, April, (guest star Grace Phipps, “The Nine Lives of Chloe King”), has returned to town and is enrolling at Mystic Falls High. At a town gathering, Elena comes close to losing control until Caroline steps in to help her. Finally, Damon confides his feelings to an unexpected friend.

Stephen and Elena are in the woods and she has fed off a deer.  Stephen assures Elena that the deer will live because he is big.

Back to Damon and he tells Elena he disagrees with her eating animals, vampires eat people, it is part of the natural food pyramid.  He tells Elena she will be miserable.
