Storyline

Original vampire Klaus forces captured Katherine to torture herself. Meanwhile Klaus takes henchman witch Maddox's advice to possess Alaric's body and use his history teacher job as cover to work on the school-kids and attend the high-school 1960s theme dance, where he hopes to tempt Bonnie to overexert her hundredfold witch powers against an unbreakable charm until she dies. Jeremy mistrusts Bonnie's assurance she can cope and consults Damon, who doesn't even confide in Stefan, to brilliantly mount an elaborate trap. Matt teams up with the sheriff for Caroline's sake.

Quotes

Damon Salvatore: You need to listen to me and prepare for what I'm about to say. Bonnie had to die. Klaus using Alaric's body was a total surprise. She wasn't prepared for that. And he wasn't going to stop and we weren't going to be able to stop him until he knew she was dead. He had to believe it. She cast a spell, Bonnie's okay.

And Elena, Again, With Her Action, Will Be Probably Responsible for the Next Shows
4 November 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Klaus uses his power to compel Katherine to torture herself and he discovers that Bonnie is a powerful witch now. Maddox uses a spell to protect Klaus and he goes to the high-school party based on the 60's using Alaric's Body. Meanwhile Stefan and Damon transfer their house to Elena to have a safe house for her. Jeremy, Bonnie, Elena, Stefan and Damon go to the dancing party and Klaus creates a distraction to abduct Elena and Bonnie with the intention of killing her by overusing her powers to vanquish him. Matt lures Caroline and plots a scheme with Sheriff Forbes.

"The Last Dance" is a good episode where the death of Bonnie is fortunately well resolved. I feel sorry for the naive Caroline, and what might happen when she discovers Matt's betrayal. And Elena, again, with her stupid action in the end of the episode, will be probably responsible for the next shows. Why Damon did not bury Elijah's remains? My vote is seven.
