Holy. I just zipped right through this season while on my daily 4-hour commute. I swear to you, if this show wasn’t good enough for you in the first season, it just got better. The story progresses a lot further, while we’re introduced to several new characters as well as a more developed plot.
For my humble opinion on the exciting “WTF” moments, read on! Spoilers ahead!
• Damon basically gives in to the idea that he’s dying.
• Klaus kills Elijah in order to keep his promise of “reuniting him with their family”.
• Damon becomes delusional from the werewolf bite and is now having hallucinations about Katherine with Elena. Things are turning ugly as Sheriff Forbes shows up and tries to shoot Damon, only to find Damon running away at the last second leaving Jeremy (behind him) to take the bullet.
• Stefan surrenders himself to Klaus in order to save his brother – oh no! Bad vampire Stefan.
• Damon continues to spiral downwards and he finds Elena and bites her. She takes care of him, he confesses his feelings for Elena (aww!), and right as he’s near-death, she kisses him!
• Jeremy is brought back to life via Bonnie and the hundred witches but now, he (literally) sees dead people (aka Anna and Vicki).
How exciting is that! What I really loved about this season is how everything happened – again, I didn’t expect these shocking events to occur, and they keep the thrill going. Stefan and Damon have now switched, and I can finally watch Ian Somerhalder become the devious little lovebug I’d like him to be.
My rating for this season would be 4/5. It remains the same. The show is still not perfect, but it’s still my favourite vampire show as of now.
The series is based off the books by the same name, written by L. J. Smith.
