Giuseppe: Do you know of any vampires?
Stefan: No. No, of course not. But are we to take what others say at face value? You always taught us so differently.
Giuseppe: Stefan, these creatures are of the darkest parts of hell. They have the ability to control your mind, seduce your spirit. They are deadly. And they must be destroyed. Those who stand with them, those who bring shame to their families, will be destroyed as well.
