The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 13 is next. Watch The Vampire Diaries Season 4 Episode 13 Online as Everyone’s been so focused on getting Elena (Nina Dobrev) the cure for vampirism, but now we’re starting to hear what it might mean for everyone else on The Vampire Diaries. In a sneak peek clip for Season 4, Episode 13, “Into the Wild,” the new vampire asks Damon whether he’d take it.
Not surprisingly, the elder Salvatore is a little cagey. “I don’t like to speculate,” he replies. However, lots of people have been asking Ian Somerhalder this question, and the actor is pretty adamant: “This whole cure crap, Damon's thinking to himself, 'Why on earth would I partake in the cure that's essentially going to make me a normal human being and susceptible to everything? I'm having a blast!'” Ian tells The Hollywood Reporter.
That could be a serious issue in, say, 30 or 40 years, if Elena takes the cure. But in the meantime, E has another problem: Rebekah (Claire Holt). Damon tells the brunette vamp that Stefan (Paul Wesley) only brought the Original sister to the mysterious island to prove his over his ex. In The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 13, the fang gang is bidding Mystic Falls farewell and traveling to a remote island off the coast of Nova Scotia to search for the cure to vampirism. And, naturally, with such a high-risk intimate outing, some personality clashing is bound to happen. This time around, it’s Elena who’s seeing red over the fact that Stefan invited Rebekah along on their expedition into Canada’s wilderness. (Plus, she has to tote around a heavy bag full of camping gear and there’s no hot shower for miles — not fun at all.) She voices her annoyance over Stefan’s plus one and even Damon throws in his two cents by psycho-analyzing his young brother’s motives.
Watch the latest preview clip for “Into the Wild” for a scene full of juicy Delena chit chat, complete with Elena asking Damon a serious question concerning the cure! Here we go. After a shaky start to the season that never did quite capitalise on Elena's new vampirism, the hunt for the cure is finally underway. Not surprisingly, Kol has now met a sticky, fiery end and surprisingly, it all went down almost exactly as Elena planned at the beginning of the episode. Jeremy's alarmingly buff bod is now covered in the entirety of the map, Klaus is trapped in the Gilbert house, and Rebekah is on `Team Everyone'. It's a shame that we couldn't keep the three team conceit going all the way to Silas' grave, as it now seems they're all in it together.
And fans of Stefan and Rebekah's burgeoning relationship will be pleased with the 80s-themed dance, which the new couple attend despite it being cancelled by the Bonnie's dad. This leads to a semi-romantic dance in an empty school gym, surrounded by 89 red balloons (what would Caroline say about the missing ten?) and leading to some revelations about everyone's reasons for wanting the cure. Rebekah doesn't just want to punish Klaus, but she also wants desperately to be human. We knew this of course, and Rebekah has been top of my list for turning human since day one.
We all feel sorry for Rebekah despite her killing off our heroine, and I can't help thinking that she's actually the most compelling female character on The Vampire Diaries right now. Her relationship with Stefan, while it might not be Stelena fans' cup of tea, is just the right amount of selfish and scheming, while still having hints of a romance that they've already experienced together. Matt's reaction to hearing her confession in the hallway can be read in various ways, too, and the fact that he didn't dagger her right there and then just proves that there's still potential for those two.
