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?


In the scene where the moon with the comet are shown together, comet's tail points away from the sun. The bright side of the moon also faces the sun. Normally, the bright side of the moon and the tail of the comet would both indicate the approximate direction of the sun. The relative to each other, bright side of the moon and the orientation of the comet's tail depict an impossible location of the sun. Either the moon or the comet was placed into night sky with the incorrect orientation. See more »


Damon Salvatore: You have two choices. You can feed, and make her forget, or you can let her run screaming vampire through the town square.
Stefan Salvatore: That's what this is about? You wanna expose me?
Damon Salvatore: No! I want you to remember who you are!
Stefan Salvatore: Why? So what, so I'll feed, so I'll kill, so I'll remember what it's like to be brothers again? You know what, let her go. Let her tell everyone that vampires have returned to Mystic Falls, let them chain me up and drive a stake through my heart, 'cause then at least I'll be free of you.

This episode was so bad that it was laugh-out-loud funny at times.
7 July 2016 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I did not think that the pilot of The Vampire Diaries was that bad. I had some issues with it but I saw potential. Then I watched this episode... Wow. I don't know whether my expectations were higher or if they hired a terrible writer, but that was seriously awful.

There were moments where the storyline went back on itself. As if the writers thought they made a mistake so they decided to change that plot line later in the episode, which made me very confused.

But what really got me was that they took the problems that the previous episode had, and put them in this episode about ten times more. I won't go in depth on that because I did in the previous review, but I will say that the music in the background made me groan in disgust at some points.

The thing that made this episode laugh-out-loud funny for me was the dialogue. There were times where I had to pause it because I was laughing so hard. The only main characters that didn't have incredibly bad dialogue were the brothers, but Stefan doesn't talk much so I'm not sure that he counts. So basically Damon was the one thing I liked about this episode.

I hope this show doesn't stay like this. According to the user reviews, this is the worst episode in the series, so I am persuaded to watch the next episode; but if the next episode is similar to this one than I may not continue with this show.

I give The Vampire Diaries Season One Episode Two 3/10 stars.
