Fresh on the heels of the boring Twilight craze, and the well-deserved True Blood phase, CW is offering up its latest in teen dramas. Apparently, this show drew 5 million viewers its first night. That’s probably due to Twilight-hype. I can’t stand Twilight. It sucks ass. I couldn’t read the books, but read a review from Dan Bergstein on those Stephanie Meyer books. It was very entertaining. The movie kind of sucked as well.
This is the situation, as I’ve divined it using my psychic powers. The Fox network saw that Twilight was really working well. Wow, maybe vamps are cool again, said one exec. Another said, maybe not, remember Forever Knight. Then, everyone went bonkers for True Blood. The same exec said it confirmed his theory that vamps are back in, notably teen vamps, not crazy sex-addicted vamps. One exec mentioned Teen Wolf, the other slapped him on the back of the head.
So, we need to find a teen vampire series. Wait, my daughter used to read some vampire thingie called The Vampire Diaries in the 90s. Let’s pressure L. J. Smith to write some sequels as an added incentive. That will make it cool!
Warning: spoilers ahead

The vampire pedophile’s game is going badly. He can’t fake his vampire-ness to Elena anymore. His mask is slipping and Elena is a relentless investigative journalist, so she easily finds out that Stefan is a vampire. Meanwhile, the anti-vampiric society is looking for the mystical watch which will set them free, but they can’t find it, even with Logan poking around Jeremy’s room while he is trying to get back into Jenna’s pants. Jeremy, the dealer, has trouble with Vicki, because he’s sick of always getting high with her. Duh! Vicki is a coke and pill-fiend, so she keeps popping them pills.
Things go badly for Vicki in this episode, as Damon drains her and feeds her blood. Then, he kills her so she’s becoming a full-fledged vamp. Stefan comes clean to Elena, but she doesn’t want anything to do with him anymore. Logan gets killed by Damon while trying to kill Stefan with a wooden bullet. Damon has got the vampire-finding watch.
In exchange, Stefan gives him his ring. I guess that Caroline is dead.

Stefan tells Elena that he is a vampire. She runs off. He follows her into her room. He says that he wouldn’t hurt her. He says that Damon is behind the attacks. He says that knowing this is dangerous. She shouldn’t tell anyone.
Meanwhile, Damon continues to drain people. Damon calls Stefan. He wants his ring. Damon calls Stefan. He wants his ring. Damon killed two of the dope-smoking punks, as well as Vicki. She isn’t dead yet.
Elena wants to know everything about vampires. There aren’t any other vamps in Mystic Falls.
The sheriff and the reporter arrive on the scene. He tells her that he found the Gilbert watch. They find Vicki’s ID. Meanwhile, Damon feeds Vicki some of his blood. Initially, she resists, but then she starts drinking.
Stefan shows Elena where he used to live. The vampire pedo comes clean. He says that he’s been 17 years old since 1864. We see Stefan and Damon alive in 1864. We saw Katherine and Stefan first meeting. He tells Elena that Katherine wasn’t just any girl. Damon was a Confederate soldier. Katherine chose Stefan to go to the 1st Founder’s Ball. That night, Katherine was also with Damon. Katherine was a vampire. She turned both brothers into vamps. She dominated him. She controlled their minds.
Stefan came here to retrieve Damon’s ring.
That’s the thing about Damon. He doesn’t get mad, he gets even.
In the present, Vicki is all healed up. She’s become his blood doll. They continue to exchange blood. Damon kills Vicki. With the vampire blood coursing through her veins, I’m sure that she’s become a vampire. She has but doesn’t believe Damon. He suggests that she drops by to see Jeremy. She arrives famished. Jeremy calls Matt.
The items are brought together and assembled. My guess is that it’s some kind of vampire detector. It’s shaped like an antique watch. They also have wooden bullets and stakes.
Stefan tells Elena that the necklace protects her from being compelled by a vampire. They arrive at Elena’s house. Stefan arrives just in time. He tells Elena that Vicki is transitioning into a vamp. She has to feed on human blood. If she doesn’t, she will die. Vicki is about to feed from Jeremy. She runs off.
The vampire hunters are on the prowl. Damon comes by to see Elena. He wants his ring. He tells Elena to tell Damon that he is looking for Stefan. Stefan finds Vicki at the cemetery. Logan shoots Stefan with a wooden bullet. He is about to stake him, but Damon arrives just in time. He mauls Logan and gets the wooden bullet out of Stefan. Vicki feeds on Logan. Damon gets his ring back. Stefan comes back and tells Elena that he couldn’t stop Vicki from feeding. Elena tells him that she can’t be with him.
