Goofs

After Klaus Mikaelson stabbed Jenna Sommers, her dead body was shown several times from different angles. There were two shots of those angles where in one angle shot, she was shown stabbed in her upper chest, wearing a neck t-shirt. But in another different angle shot, she was seen stabbed rather in her lower chest, wearing a low cut t-shirt, showing her cleavage. See more »

Quotes

John Gilbert: [John's final letter to Elena] Elena, it's no easy task being an ordinary parent to an extraordinary child. I've failed in that task, and because of my prejudices, I've failed you. I'm haunted by how things might've played out differently if I'd been more willing to hear your side of things. For me, it's the end. For you, a chance to grow old and someday do better with your own child than I did with mine. It's for that child that I give you my ring. I don't ask for your forgiveness, or for you ...

Damon sees the bite on his arm with the growing wound. Meanwhile Matt shoots Tyler and then he tells to Caroline that neither her mother nor he is compelled and they know that she is a vampire. Jenna finds that she is a vampire; Greta completes her transformation and Klaus brings Jules and kills her. Damon tells Stefan that Klaus transformed Jenna into a vampire and John returns and meets Damon. Jeremy and Bonnie study the journals and the grimoire to see if they can save Elena.

Elijah promises to kill Klaus while John plots a deadly plan to save Elena from the transformation. Klaus does not accept Stefan and kills Jenna. However, during his transition, Bonnie uses her powers and Elijah comes to kill his brother in the name of their family.

"The Sun Also Rises" is definitely the best episode of this Second Season. Unfortunately Jenna is dead but the good thing is that John is gone with his final redemption. Matt has juts thrown Caroline to the arms of Tyler. Elijah's betrayal was expected and now Elena can see the effects of her action resurrecting Elijah. How Damon will heal his arm is the great question. My vote is ten.
