The Short Career of the New Vampire in Mystic Falls
24 July 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Logan is not invited by Jenna into the house and attacks a girl on the street. Sheriff Forbes calls Damon to tell him that there was another vampire attack in Mystic Falls. Damon uses Caroline to locate Logan using the watch, but he is surprised by Logan that uses wooden bullets to hurt him. Then he asks how Damon can walk in the sunlight while Damon asks Logan who turned him into a vampire. Stefan tells Elena that he will stay in Mystic Falls to protect her from the vampire. At the Career night, he sees Logan and warns Elena to tell Jenna to stay away of Logan. When Sheriff Forbes sees Logan, she becomes aware of who is the vampire in town. Logan offers a ride home to Caroline but Damon and Stefan rescue her, but Damon spares him expecting to learn how to get to the tomb under the old church. Rick helps Jeremy and Tyler from the abusive treatment of Mayor Lockwood. Then Rick stabs Logan and destroys the vampire. Stefan and Elena make love but when she sees a photo of Katherine on the desk, she leaves Stefan's room very upset and leaves her necklace on the picture.

Fortunately Logan is gone since this arrogant character was very unpleasant. Caroline is used by Damon again, and it is funny the explanation that he would interfere with the compass. The "fish or cut bait" between Stefan and Elena continues. What has Elena hit on the road? But the mysterious Alaric "Rick" Saltzman seems to be the most promising character for the next episodes. My vote is eight.
