BONNIE BENNETT
Ranking:
90 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 95 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Bon-Bon saved the day again! Without her, the Salvatores would not have known where to look for Elena. And Elena would not have known help was on the way. Now, the witch of Mystic Falls just needs to take care of herself.

STEFAN SALVATORE
Ranking: 92 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 90 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week he led Operation Kill Kitty Kat. This week, Stefan took charge of Operation Save Elena. Seriously, though: Guarding that girl has become his full-time business. Now, if only Stefan could convince her to take him back.

DAMON SALVATORE
Ranking: 95 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 92 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Sir Salvatore saved Elena’s life. Then he professed his love for her and told her that despite how much he loves her, she should be with his brother. Then he compelled her to forget. [Pause.] Listen. Just don’t get us started on this one.

CAROLINE FORBES
Ranking: 75 out of 100 Founders pins
Last week’s ranking: 75 out of 100 Founders pins
What is in the water over there? Last week it looked like Jeremy was crushing on Bonnie. Now it seems Blondie’s feeling a little something for wolf boy Ty. Why else would Caroline tell him her vamp secret after Damon explicitly told her to keep it hush-hush?

TYLER LOCKWOOD
Ranking: 75 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 80 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Super dunking on the playground, then hanging on the rim... kicking a trashcan across the parking lot... If this is how Tyler keeps his own super strength a secret, then Caroline’s in trouble.

ROSE
Ranking: 80 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 0 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Rose, her late BFF Trevor, hired a guy to kidnap Elena then sold her for their freedom. We’d say that’s not the best way to make new friends around Mystic Falls.

ELENA GILBERT
Ranking:
87 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 85 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
It’s been a rough couple of days for our girl E. Thanks to Lucy’s spell, Elena felt every stakin’ blow the Salvatores dealt Katherine. Then she was kidnapped and taken way, way WAY outside the city lines where two new vampires traded her for their freedom. But we’ve got to give it to Elena. When she woke up in a den of evil, she kept her wits about her.

Sometimes life in Mystic Falls bites. Literally. There are vampires and werewolves and a town council bent on destroying them all. No wonder these people don’t get along. But who runs Mystic Falls and who gets run over? Here’s a look at this week’s power players from “Rose.”

ALARIC SALTZMAN
Ranking:
10 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 50 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Alaric loaned his classroom to Bon-Bon for her spell-casting session with only caveat: The witch (and her business) needed to be gone within 10 minutes.

KATHERINE PIERCE
Ranking:
50 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 90 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Kat’s locked away in a tomb and she’s still got pull. The only reason Original Vampire Elijah didn’t kill Rose was because not only did she have concrete info on the Evil Miss’s whereabouts, she had her doppelganger.

JEREMY GILBERT
Ranking: 70 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Last week’s ranking: 60 out of 100 Founder’s Pins
Not-so-little Jer bled for his big sis. And when Bonnie passed out in his bed he was a perfect gentleman.
