Did You Know?

Elena Gilbert:You weren't in class, I was worried.
Stefan Salvatore:Yeah, I got your messages, and... sorry I didn't get back to you. But what I want to say shouldn't be said over the phone.
Elena Gilbert:A simple "I didn't kill my brother" text would have sufficed.
Stefan Salvatore:I didn't kill my brother... as much as he deserved it.

Haunted by the Past, 24 July 2013
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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.
