As Mystic Falls prepares for a festival to celebrate the passing of a comet, Vicki is in the hospital recovering from the attack she can barely remember. Stefan goes to the hospital and tries to use his abilities to make sure Vicki doesn't remember what really happened, but his attempt is cut short when Vicki's brother Matt arrives. Jeremy continues to struggle at school and with his feelings for Vicki. At a parent/teacher conference, Mr. Tanner makes Aunt Jenna feel that she is failing as a surrogate parent, especially when it comes to the self-destructive Jeremy. Elena decides to go to the Salvatore house to talk to Stefan, but finds his charming brother Damon instead. Damon reveals surprising information about Stefan's past, and when Stefan arrives home, Elena is confused and embarrassed to realize that he isn't happy to see her there. Meanwhile, Vicki's memory of the attack begins to come back to her. Also, Damon begins to set his sights on Caroline. Written by CW Publicity

Did You Know?


Elena twice says that Stephan never mentioned that he had a brother (once to Damon, then later to Stephan). However, in the previous episode when Caroline, Bonnie and Elena are asking Stephan about himself, Elena asks if he has siblings. He replies that he has none that he talks to, implying he does have siblings. Therefore, Elena shouldn't have been so surprised that Stephan does have a brother. See more »


Elena Gilbert: Stefan never mentioned he had a brother.

Reasonable Episode
8 May 2012 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Stefan overhears Jeremy telling to Elena that Vicki told him that she had been attacked by a vampire and he visits her and uses his ability to persuade her that she was attacked by an animal.

Meanwhile Elena goes to Stefan's house and meets Damon that tells her that his brother misses his former love, Katherine. The evil Damon manipulates Vicky, who is recovering her memory, to force Stefan to kill her. Then Damon flirts with the easy Caroline and they have sex. When the awkward Elena meets Stefan, they resolve their situation watching the passage of a comet over Mystic Falls.

"The Night of the Comet" is a reasonable episode, with Damon trying to force Stefan to drink human blood. After biting Vicky, Damon now bites Caroline. Will the students of Mystic Falls high school turn into vampires? My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "A Noite do Cometa" ("The Night of the Comet")
