The Series Is Getting Better and Better
19 July 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Elena is concerned with the mysterious past of Stefan. Meanwhile Vicki spends the night with Jeremy in his bedroom. Stefan leaves Damon, who is very weak, locked in the dungeon of Zach's house and meets Elena at the car wash promoted by the high-school to raise funds. When Elena hears an man with Alzheimer that has recognized Stefan from fifty years ago, her curiosity increases bout the Salvatore brothers and she decides to research in Logan's work. Meanwhile Damon uses his power to summon Caroline to release him and during the night he meets Vicky in the woods.

"You're Undead to Me" is a great episode of this series that is getting better and better. Will Elena disclose the secret about Stefan and Damon? What kind of strange brotherhood Logan, the mayor and Sheriff Liz Forbes form? Damon now is getting stronger again but without his ring. What will be the reaction of Jeremy when he discovers what has happened to Vicky? There are many questions to be responded in the next episodes. My vote is eight.
