The Vampire Diaries is a show where witches can bring people back from the dead, vampires kiss humans instead of ripping their throats out, and werewolves have silky smooth chests when they haven’t transformed. And we accept all of this without blinking an eye. Yet it’s the little things that make us scoff and say, “That would never happen.” Check out the biggest logic fails from Season 4, Episode 11, “Catch Me If You Can.”

How romantic
We’re still not quite sure what Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was hoping to have happen when he told Elena (Nina Dobrev) to come to the Gilbert cabin and then got in on Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) mark-growing plan. Maybe the couple could cozy up by the fire while Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) finished off the bar-full of vampires? Either way, Elena drove a long way to spend the night waiting for the sun to come up with Jer and Matt (Zach Roerig).

Klaus leaves quickly
Shouldn’t Klaus have stuck around the Gilbert cabin to make sure Jeremy completed his mark? Instead, the OV leaves the new hunter with a dozen vamps to kill and then blabs the plan to Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic). It’s called follow-through, Klaus!

Why doesn’t Damon believe Kol about Silas?
When Damon and Stefan (Paul Wesley) were in New Orleans, the witch Nandi told them about Expression, saying, “Channeling the power of human sacrifice calls on darkness that can’t exist on this plane without swallowing it whole.” Sounds scary — and memorable. Then Kol briefs the elder Salvatore on Silas: “His followers told me that he would rise again, and when he did, he would trigger the end of all time.” This doesn’t ring any bells for Damon, who replies, “We’re not going to back off the cure because you were told one too many bedtime stories, you idiot.” It’s time to start putting the end-of-the-world puzzle pieces together.

Bonnie gets a confession
Apparently just about anyone can waltz into an interrogation room at the Mystic Falls police station. Bonnie (Kat Graham) tells her dad, the mayor who is not in any way involved with law enforcement that she’s the only one who will be able to get Professor Shane (David Alpay) to confess to the Council explosion. The sheriff defers to Rudy’s judgment. We’re not lawyers, but we’re pretty sure that won’t hold up, legally. Well, unless Mystic Falls runs its courts like it runs its police station.

Random rummaging
Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Stefan spent all day searching Shane’s office for the headstone to Silas’s grave. All day. When there was light. And yet a mysterious stranger spends a few minutes rifling through papers and knocking on walls in the dark and manages to find it? That’s what you get for spending so much time flirting, Stebekah!

Elena’s moral code
Elena is fine with killing people. No, not people — vampires. Thousands of vampires. When she decided that Jeremy should use the white oak stake on Kol, effectively ending his vampire bloodline, however long it might be, she sounded very different from the girl who stood in a cabin a few hours earlier complaining about the number of human lives lost to Klaus’s plan. What if those vamps are all like Rose and Lexi, Elena?
