Normally, TVD is her show. But this week she was a supporting player in the Mystic Falls cast. Mostly, all she did was react. React to Uncle John bleeding on the floor. React to Damon and Stefan fighting. React to Stefan breaking her brother’s neck. Boring.

This week Bon-bon not only knocked some sense into Damon’s head, she overstepped Elena to make sure he gave Caroline some of his blood and faced off with Katherine. That’s three good reasons why no one will ever be able to say this witch is whack.

(Warning: Alliteration overdose approaching in five, four, three, two….) This week Mystic Falls’ finest fanger was deliciously damaged goods. Katherine broke his heart (see above) and then Elena stepped on it — repeatedly. So he retaliated, trying to start a fight with his brother, and then snapping Jeremy’s neck. When he wasn’t dealing with his inner circle he was masterfully misleading the town’s peeps. Oh, the levels to this dude. Love ’em!

This week somebody picked a great time to man up. And that somebody would be the vamp Stefan. In addition to giving Uncle John his marching papers and being Elena’s vampire rock, Stefan put Katherine and his brother on notice. Way to show those fangs!

Kat ruled the day in “The Return.” Sexy, vengeful, violent, and then some — she kept us on edge. In addition to breaking Damon to the point where we thought he might curl up and cry (“I’ve never loved you. It was always Stefan,” she told him), she stabbed Stefan in the gut, toyed with Elena, and put Bonnie in her place. Can’t wait to see what she does next week.

Was she in this episode? Just kidding. She uttered one line at the hospital.

He was so worried about Caroline that he practically lived at the hospital. Good boyfriend! He still has no clue, however, what led to her miraculous recovery. And where was he when Katherine paid Caroline a visit?

Give the guy a break. He’s in mourning.

Tyler’s bad-boy uncle rolled into town in a monster truck — very apropos, we’re told, for the wolf within. Though he apparently hasn’t visited his fam for, like, seven years, he’s back now and supporting his nephew when he needs him most. Mason looks promising.

Jer didn’t wake up dead. And he didn’t die when Damon broke his neck. He also didn’t take a drink out of the flask at Tyler’s. But we’re nitpicking.

Poor Caroline spent the entire ep in the hospital bed only to be suffocated in the last minute. Not much power there. But next week she’s going to bring it.
