The Vampire Diaries: Season 2, Episode 1; The Return

  • Sep 22, 2010
  • by

Episode 1 of season 2 starts off with a recap of the last episode of season one and goes straight into the rest of that night.  in brief what happens is....katherine returns and confesses that she never loved Damon it was always Stefan, Elena pretty much says the same thing, Damon kills Jeremy and Katherine kills Caroline (don't know what happens next and if really deaded - see next episode) and Uncle John leaves town and Uncle Mason comes home - will all be revealed to Tyler about the curse of the Lockwoods? - probably.  

It has only been a few months, but I have missed the characters and all the eye candy looks even more delicious.  Stefan in particular has manned up and is looking hot - he seemed a bit pathetic and wimpy in season 1.  Still Team Damon - yes even after he killed Jeremy. But Jeremy is a bit over sensitive and deer in the headlights so this might bring out his Gilbert vengeance.  

The acting is as good as last season,but the bad acting from last season is back too.  To be fair it might not be "bad" acting but possibly the way the character is portrayed and that is that of Katerina Graham as Bonnie Bennett.  I can't fairly say bad acting as I can't act either but for some reason she is unbelievable. What? witches aren't real?  I have included a lovely picture of said Ms Graham to make up for my criticism.  As much as I adore Ian Somerhalder her overused the old glare this episode and it made him seem a bit twee. But he is easily forgiven.  Although Stefan is wining me over I still can't understand how you would choose Stefan over Damon, that wouldn't happen on my shift for sure :)  

It was a great first episode to the new season -  I  only wish the first episode of the first season had been as good and it hadn't been so slow to get going.  It was worth persevering with and if you havent watched any vamp diaries yet I would say that you really need to keep the faith and keep watching till at least the 5th/6th episode of Season 1.  If the quality stays the same throughout and the acting improves then we may be in a real treat this autumn.  I will definitely be watching.

I used to love Twilight. Now, I don't exactly hate it, but it certainly does not deseve its hype. Stephanie Meyer was simply in the right place at the right time... She had perfect Post Potter timing. I don't think anyone can accuse Stephanie Meyer of being a good writer. Having friends that despise Twilight with their entire being forced me to think more critically about what I was reading, and I soon realised that they were right, Breaking Dawn was a disaster.      …

The Vampire Diaries: Season 2, Episode 2; Brave New World
The start of episode 2 of the second season of The Vampire Diaries continues from the end of episode 1 where we saw Katherine visit Caroline in hospital and smothers her and then leaves.   Caroline wakes up and is hungry..but hungry for what? She's hungry for blood! This is when Caroline starts to go through the transformation into a vampire - this is really well acted by Candice Acolla, as she portrays Caroline's struggle with what is normal …

About this topic


The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural-fantasy horror television series, which premiered on The CW on September 10, 2009. It was originally filmed in Vancouver, but after filming the Season 1 Pilot episode, filming was relocated to Covington, Georgia and Monroe, Georgia, to take advantage of Georgia's more competitive tax incentives. The show is based on the book series of the same name by L. J. Smith.

The series currently airs in The CW's previous Smallville slot. The series is paired with Supernatural as part of a horror-themed night. On October 21, 2009, it was announced that The CW had given the series a full, 22-episode first season. Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries is currently The CW's best performing show.

Forbes.com includes the series in a so-called "vampire craze" in entertainment, beginning with HBO's True Blood and the film Twilight, continuing with the film Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant, and the upcoming films New Moon and Daybreakers.
