It was another intense episode. I’ve decided that’s the best word to describe the show overall: INTENSE.
So apparently the blood transfusion from Elena was enough to get Jeremy mostly back to healthy – good thing since he needed to fight the Pack’s former enforcer, Koenig, who’s a really nasty piece of work. The backstory about him and Antonio was interesting both for what it told us about Koenig as well as Jeremy’s motivation in telling Nick the story. Maybe Jeremy wanted Nick to have even more reason to want the guy dead? And then Nick’s the one who ultimately kills Koenig while saving Jeremy… supposedly. It was good to see Nick question Jeremy on that, even if Jeremy avoided the answer. And Jeremy taking Nick to spread Antonio’s ashes was very touching.
Then Elena gets attacked by LeBlanc, who apparently followed Koenig without his knowlege. Luckily her wound wasn’t serious, but the most interesting thing was that she was able to stop herself from changing, which werewolves are not supposed to be able to do. How did she do it? And what does it mean that she could do it, when no one else is able?
Over at the crazy Mutt gang hideout, Kane’s girlfriend Amber is grieving his loss and wants vengeance, and she can think of no better way to get it than to become a werewolf and go on the attack. When Santos locks LeBlanc in the cage for disobeying him and following Koenig, Amber convinces him to wolf out and bite her. A few hours later, she’s only partially transformed, so her odds of being the second female werewolf in existence don’t look very good.
Back in Toronto, Logan and Rachel go for her first ultrasound and find out that yes, she’s having a boy. A boy means he’ll be a werewolf, too, and that means by Pack rules the baby has to be taken from the mother and raised by the Pack. The reason Pack members don’t have relationships is pretty obvious now, and Logan’s going to be in a hell of a bind in a few months. And who sent the creepy rattle and knows Rachel’s having a boy?! I can’t blame him for again putting off going to Stonehaven, but it’s not going to help matters in the long run.
Then there’s Phillip, who’s still freaking out over the “wolf” footage that has Elena’s clothes and necklace in it at the end. He goes to talk to Logan, and Logan manages to spin him a lame tale of the two of them going swimming, because two adult cousins swimming in the nude isn’t weird AT ALL. Logan also has to worry about this footage Phillip has, because he knows it has to be of him and Elena. He tries to call her, but she doesn’t call back.
Elena’s freaked out about getting shot and feeling vunerable, which leads to her finally giving in and having sex with Clay again. But when she wakes in the morning, she sneaks off, knowing that she screwed up, and doesn’t even speak to Clay about it.
So Elena hears the message from Diane about the photography show and decides she’s going back to Toronto. Jeremy understands, but tells her that Clay’s going with her to protect her or she stays at Stonehaven. Oh boy, Clay meeting Phillip? Things are about to get really interesting in Toronto…
