Quotes

Damon Salvatore: I got the town off our back, it was for the greater good, but I'm sorry. And to prove it, I'm not going to feed on a human for at least a... week. I'll adopt the Stefan diet, only nothing but feathers.
Stefan Salvatore: Because I realize killing your closest and oldest friend is beyond evil and yet, somehow it's worthy of humor.
Damon Salvatore: Are you mimicking me?
Damon Salvatore: And I can go back to sulking and Elena-longing and forehead brooding. This is fun, I like this.
Stefan Salvatore: Yes, Stefan. Now that the secret society of vampire-haters if off ...

Haunted by the Past
24 July 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Bonnie has nightmares with her ancestral Emily that is trying to communicate with her, and she decides to dump the medallion in a field. Elena helps her but when they return to Elena's house with Caroline, they find the necklace back. Caroline suggests them to perform a séance to contact Emily and Bonnie is possessed by Emily. Meanwhile, a new history teacher, Alaric "Rick" Saltzman arrives in Mystic Falls and he gives a second chance to Jeremy. Stefan tries to find the reason why Damon is so interested in Bonnie's necklace. Jenna receives a surprising visit of an uninvited guest.

"History Repeating" is another engaging episode of "The Vampire Diaries", a show that is increasing its intensity and tension along the episodes. Who might be Rick I believe is the greatest question that every fan has. Katherine and the twenty-seven vampires protected by Emily's spell could have been a good plot point but anyway the story was well resolved. The unexpected return of Logan may bring surprises to the plot. Who turned he in a vampire? My vote is eight.
