I think he absolutely actually cares for Caroline, for all the reasons he listed. It's weird, because Klaus has hurt every single person on this show, most more than once. He's been a total rat bastard, he's been pure evil, etc., and so I should be totally pissed at Caroline for appreciating his advances even a little, and yet I am absolutely on the Klausoline bandwagon. It just works. Nina Dobrev was just super pretty in this episode, even moreso than usual, though whenever her hair's all fancy and curled I have to keep reminding myself she's not actually Katherine. Both her dress and Caroline's were just fab fab FAB. I love Elijah. I can understand Mama Original's plan, but Elijah's super awesome and he doesn't deserve to die. I felt really bad for him when Elena lied to him after he's always been so moral and honorable. And the Damon/Rebekah scene was totally hot, even if she's a little irritating sometimes. I agree that Elena was harsh, but I don't think she meant to be. Damon's done everything right for a good, long while, and he deserved better than that. Paul Wesley was brilliant. Every week I am continually astounded by how good this show is.
