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

I’ll admit that the whole Petrova doppelganger is somewhat interesting, but the whole Sun/Moon curse thing that was laid onto them by some Shaman is idiotic. That and the fact that some original vampires are around, messing about. Elijah isn’t impressive as an original. He’s a bit of letdown, to be honest. Smith should have taken some inspiration in vampire fiction and used some of those concepts in his own story.

Elijah wakes up and calls Elena Katarina. He remembers when he first met Katarina in 1492. He stumbles out of the cell. He can no longer enter the house. She gives him the dagger. Shortly after, they realize that she freed Elijah. Stef calls her and she calms him down. She tells to keep Damon under control. Elijah can help them get rid of Klaus. She tells Elijah that Klaus is here. Elijah and Elena go to see Mrs. Lockwood.

Alaric tells Katherine that Maddox has gone to retrieve his body.

In 1492, Katarina meets Nicklaus, who prefers the name Klaus. Klaus is Elijah’s brother. They were 7 siblings and the oldest vampire family. They were born as humans. The Sun Moon curse is fake. Klaus and his family planted the legends in different cultures to get everyone to look for the moonstone and the doppelganger. The curse was place on Klaus. He’s been trying to break it for 1,000 years.

Damon and his girl find Katherine. He’s got verbena for Katherine. It will break the compulsion.

Stefan comes to see Jenna and finds Klaus-as-Ric there. He starts telling her about vampires and the curse. When Jenna asks Ric to leave, he takes a knife. Stefan grabs him and tells him to leave. He won’t and things get somewhat violent. Stefan makes Jenna leave and he knocks Rick out.

Stefan calls Elena and tells her to come. She promises Elijah that he’ll be back. She tells Jenna most of what she knows. Jenna is in shock. Elena leaves to see Elijah. Klaus wasn’t his father’s son. When his father discovered it, he killed the adulterer’s family. It started the war between the vampires and werewolves. Klaus is both a vampire and a werewolf. He’s a hybrid. Witches sought to keep his werewolf half dormant. The only way to kill Klaus is by a witch. The curse must be broken during a full moon, when Klaus will transition. Elijah found a way to save the life of the doppelganger. Unfortunately, Katherine took matters into her own hands.

Ric comes back. Seconds later Maddox arrives with luggage and a coffin with another witch in tow.

Elijah and Elena come to see Stefan and Damon, who are at each other’s throats.

Klaus is back in his body. Yippee.
