The Vampire Diaries -- Is Mason Leading Damon To Mikael?
The Original Witch Seems To Be Pulling Strings From The Otherside
In the promo that ran at the end of the show, there's a scene where Mason is asking Damon if he thinks he's leading him into a trap. This is pure speculation on that scene. This isn't a spoiler. Anyway, I'm wondering if Mason is leading Damon to Mikael.
One of the interesting things to come out of 3.06 was the revelation that Vicky cut a deal with the original witch that put the curse on Klaus to try and stop Klaus from making anymore hybrids. She wants the natural balance to be restored to the point she was going to use her powers to allow Vicky to remain back in the land of the living as a ghost if she could kill the doppelganger.
From that knowledge, I think we can make the assumption that it was this original witch that sent Vicky and Anna back with Jeremy, and not Bonnie bringing Jeremy back. She knew her curse had been removed and she took advantage of the situation to try and stop Klaus in his tracks. She even told Klaus that doppelganger had to be killed so even if Klaus broke the curse he still wouldn't be able to make hybrids. It was her back-up plan in case someone succeeded in breaking her curse.
Of course, when Bonnie and Matt teamed up to send Vicky back to the nether world, it seems like the original witch sent Mason back and sent him after Damon. Mason's exact words when he knocked Damon out was, "This is going to be fun." Perhaps the deal the original witch struck with Mason was he could get his pound of flesh from Damon, but he wasn't allowed to kill him.
The original witch may have sent Anna back because she knew where Mikael was entombed. Damon and Katherine forced Anna to tell them where to find Mikael, but the Damon rushed off to play devoted love swain to Elena, which lured Damon away from Mikael. But when Bonnie did her spell to send Vicky back the doorway between both worlds had to be opened and the original witch used the opportunity to send Mason back and to get Damon back on the right track so he'll connect up with Mikael, since she knows Mikael is dedicated to killing Klaus.
The interesting thing is that while Vicky and Anna have a connection to Jeremy, they also have a connection to Damon. Damon is the one who turned Vicky into a vampire and Damon was there when John Gilbert staked Anna. And now Mason is connected to Damon in that it was Damon who tortured him and killed him.
One thing I do wonder is if it's possible Damon could have some witch in him. It might explain why a lot of the witches hate his guts and are always trying to harm him. Damon protected Emily's family, she betrayed him, and she's always trying to harm him. Maybe she took exception to a witch willingly becoming a vampire. Maybe that's what the witch community has against Damon, aside from the fact he's killed a lot of witches since Emily double-crossed him.
In season one Damon seemed to display some abilities that go beyond what a vampire is capable of doing. He compelled that black crow to dive bomb Elena and Bonnie's car and to attack Elena in the cemetery. He was able to create fog in the cemetery. And when Stefan had him trapped in that cell, he was able to call Caroline to him, to help him escape.
It may be interesting when Mikael and Damon finally come face-to-face.
