Our Video Vault column is normally devoted to those films that we love and that we’ve seen dozens and dozens of times. I personally haven’t written one on what is considered to be a classic that I’ve only just watched for the first time recently. Until now that is.
Recently it occurred to me that I needed to take two hours and visit the 1968 Steve McQueen classic, Bullitt. Going into this film, my only knowledge of it, aside from it starring McQueen, was that it features one of the best car chase scene ever captured on film. Well considering I’m all for a great car chase, that’s all the information I needed. I had no prior knowledge of the plot, or the rest of the cast for that matter so when I sat down to finally watch it, it was all a surprise.

This week's episode opens a few hours after last week's. Damon is bound to a chair with a fireplace poker stuck in his abdomen. Sadly, he remains fully dressed, except for his magic protective ring (witches can create magic jewelry that allows vampires to walk in sunlight). He thinks Stefan is behind it, apparently not seeing Mason standing by the window. Stefan wanders in and is oddly uncurious as to how Damon came to be lashed down. He pulls out the poker and removes a piece of the binding and wanders out again. Damon shouts that he'll free himself but before he can Mason pulls back the curtains, sizzling Damon in the morning sun.
