The Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 8: Jesse Dies!
And another one bites the dust on The Vampire Diaries!
On Season 5, Episode 8 ("Dead Man on Campus"), Caroline's new college boy toy Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) was killed by none other than Elena Gilbert. Now, we know what you're thinking: why would Elena kill Jesse? But it turns out that when Dr. Psycho — aka Wes Maxfield — turned Jesse into a vampire, he also turned him into his little experiment. He wanted to turn Jesse into a new kind of vampire… a kind of vampire that feeds on vampire blood.
So when Jesse was on the verge of killing Damon, Elena had to do something. Unfortunately, that something was killing Jesse. And poor Caroline had to witness the heartbreaking scene, as Jesse died in her arms and passed on to the Other Side through Bonnie. Needless to say, Caroline is none too happy with her bestie. We get it, Caroline. You're going through a break-up and your first hook-up was killed by your BFF, but was snapping at Elena really necessary?
Caroline has never been a Damon fan, but she finally let her bestie know how she really felt in "Dead Man on Campus." We're hoping these two can work things out — quickly — because Damon is in big trouble. At the end of the episode, Dr. Wes captured him and locked him up in the Augustine cellar — a place Damon was all too familiar with.
Are you sad to see Jesse go, TVD fans? Sound off in the comments!
