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!

The abductor transfers Elena to another car. It’s obvious he’s being compelled. The vampire kills him and drives off. He transports her to some old mansion. The vamp is Trevor. There is another vamp there. Looks like Elena can’t take a hint and gets a backhand. They are talking about a vampire named Elijah. They might have done some kind of deal with him to gain favour. They probably committed some kidn of wrong.

Caroline explains to Damon why she covered for Ty. Ty knows that she is lying, but Caroline defends herself. He’s royally pissed. He confronts her at her place. They fight and he learns that Caroline is a vampire.

The next day, Stefan and Jeremy realize that Elena is missing. Bonnie tries to find her using Jeremy’s blood. It’s 300 miles away. Bonnie is bleeding from the nose. Stefan leaves with Damon. Alaric gave them a verbena grenade. Someone from Katherine’s past took Elena.

The vamp tells her that Elijah is one of the original vampires. She says that Trevor and her have been running for 500 years. Elena is a Petrova doppelganger. She’s the key to breaking the curse. The moonstone binds the curse. The sacrifice of the doppelganger will break the curse. They are running form the First Family. Trevor pissed them off by trusting Katherina Petrova, the first Petrova doppelganger.

Later, Bonnie tries something else with Jeremy. She sends Elena a message. After she does this, she starts bleeding and falls unconscious. The message was successful.

Elijah arrives and Rose parleys with him; their pardon for the Petrova doppelganger. Elijah forgives Trevor by decapitating him. Elena starts talking about the moonstone. Elijah compels her to talk about Katherine and the moonstone.

The Salvatores arrive. Elena is given the verbena bomb and attacks Elijah, but he’s not really fazed. Damon ends up staking him.

Caroline and Ty are hanging out.

Rose comes to see Stefan. She offers her help. She says that it isn’t over. The originals will come for her. They are doing it for him, Klaus.

Elijah isn’t dead. He wakes up and unstakes himself. Wow, he must be pretty old.
