  • While Stefan and Elena are trying to normalize their relationship by double dating with Matt and Caroline, Damon is visited by Anna and her mother. The visit is not very pleasant and things are about to get extremely messy in Mystic Falls.

    This show seems to waver back and forth between a show about teen angst and a show about bloody killing vampires. When there is intrigue and you have to figure out what's going on it is much more interesting. In this case they are hitting you over the head with what is happening. Yes, there are a few intriguing things still occurring, but for the most part the story is becoming very stale.

    So we have a huge nest of vampires now in Mystic Falls. Not just a few, but a few dozen all of which had been inhabiting the crypt that Bonnie's Grandmother opened and didn't properly seal afterwords. So it's taken quite a few episodes but we finally know that was all for naught.

    Anna has brought back her mother and all of the vampires that were in the crypt and they are living in a farm outside of town. It turns out that Anna must be pretty old and her mother has "four hundred years on Damon and Stefan." Hmmm, that important point was left out when they were fooling around opening the sealed crypt. Under these circumstances one actually might feel bad for Damon for the first time since this show started out. As far as the actions of the humans in this episode, only Elena's brothers bold declaration really was a surprise or was it?

    So the big question going forward is how will Stefan and Damon deal with this apocalypse of biblical proportions here in their little town of Mystic Falls? If they were smart they might just leave! Not likely. So I guess we will see what way this story goes beginning with the next episode. Thanks for reading...
