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.

Well, the Vampire Diaries started up again, so I had to finish watching this show.

Elijah told them that Klaus is a vampire of a werewolf bloodline. He’s trying to release the curse so that he can become a true hybrid. Klaus must drink the blood of the doppelgänger.

Elijah has got some kind of elixir that will bring Elena back to life. A resurrection ring won’t work for her since she isn’t human.

Mrs. Lockwood is thrown over a railing by Klaus’ witch to make Tyler come back. Tyler comes back indeed. His wolf friend followed him. Caroline sees them in the parking lot. They are both captured by Klaus’ witch friends.

Al comes back. He says that Klaus let him go to deliver a message. The sacrifice is happening tonight.

Matt is leading Caroline to a trap sprung by her mother. The Sheriff tells him that they killed his sister. The Sheriff sees Matt hesitate and says that she will take over for him.

Damon wants to find another way, but Elena is insisting on it. He makes her drink his vampire blood. Stefan tries to stop him. Now if Elena dies, she’ll come back as a vampire. Damon ends up staking Stefan in the gut.

Elijah tells Damon that Elena will never forgive him. Klaus comes to see Alaric and Damon at the Grill. Damon wants to get rid of Klaus’ little wolf to break Klaus’ ritual. Alaric is on board.

Damon and Alaric go to see Katerina. Damon learns that Klaus will be using Caroline and Tyler. Catherine says that they are being held in the tomb.

Elena and Stefan spend the day together.

Klaus comes to see Catherine. He ensures that Catherine is still under his compulsion and has her do something for him.

The witch is waiting for Damon. The witch has got the upper hand, but Matt ends up shooting him. Damon finishes the task. He knocks out Matt. Damon noticed that Matt had wooden bullets. Damon frees them both.

Klaus comes to collect Elena. Damon learns that Klaus picked up Elena. They are too late. Tyler is starting to change. Damon restrains him long enough for stupid Caroline to finally get away. Tyler changes.

Klaus has already got another werewolf. He’s got Jewels. Klaus comes to see Catherine. Damon barges in. He’s been outplayed because Klaus has got backups.

Damon wakes up a few minutes later. He learns that Catherine had to call someone out to act as Klaus’ replacement vampire.

The other witch is Luka’s brother. She brings Elena to the ritual place. She finds Jenna there. She’s becoming a vampire. He couldn’t Damon because he got bit by a werewolf.
