Storyline

While Stefan struggles to control his new situation of blood lust after feeding off Elena's blood to heal, she and Jeremy are surprised by a visit from their uncle, John Gilbert, who arrives in Mystic Falls with an agenda. Meanwhile, Alaric has an awkward talk with Elena about his wife Isobel. At a Founder's Day event, Stefan displays a rare party attitude and Damon's attempt to find out why Uncle John has returned to town takes an ugly turn. An incident at the party causes trouble between Matt and Tyler, and the relationship between Matt and his immature and irresponsible mother, Kelly, reaches a new low. Elsewhere, Elena's effort to comfort Jeremy in the wake of Vicki's murder falls short and he decides to take matters into his own hands to track down the vampire who killed her. Written by matt-282

Stefan Salvatore: What?
Damon Salvatore: Great party by the way, huh?

The Hunger
3 August 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Stefan tries to control his hunger for human blood, but he is addicted again. Meanwhile, John Gilbert returns to Mystic Falls and visits his family. Stefan goes with Elena to the Founder's Day party and has a strange behavior. Damon has a conversation with John Gilbert and discovers a dark secret about Elena and Jeremy's uncle. The promiscuous Kelly provokes a friction between her son Matt and Tyler in the party. Jeremy snoops at Elena's room to seek the truth about what has happened to Vicky.

"Under Control" shows an intriguing new character, John Gilbert, and a weird Stefan, with a different behavior. The rest is teen soap-opera. My vote is seven.
