Elena Gilbert: What did Stef say about this?
Damon Salvatore: Pretty good laugh.
Elena Gilbert: And what did he say about Elijah still being alive?
Damon Salvatore: Yeah that. I didn't tell him.
Elena Gilbert: Why not?
Damon Salvatore: Well A, he can't do anything about it. And B, what I just said. Where's Bonnie?

So Far, the Best Episode of the Second Season
20 October 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

On the full moon, Damon asks Bonnie to cast a spell to keep Elena incapable to leave her home. Caroline stays with Tyler imprisoned in the Lockwood's secret dungeon to protect him against the evil transformation in werewolf. Meanwhile the stranger Jules comes from Florida to Mystic Falls seeking out Mason, and Alaric and Damon suspect that she might be a werewolf too. The naive Bonnie meets Luka expecting to break the curse in the moonstone using a spell and is lured by the warlock. Elijah visits Elena and proposes a deal to her; but she negotiates with the powerful vampire the releasing of Stefan from the tomb. Damon and Rose are close to each other and they have an unexpected visitor.

"By the Light of the Moon" is so far, the best episode of the Second Season of The Vampire Diaries. There are intriguing and dramatic moments with great direction and performances. Rose's fate is the great question in this moment. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "By the Light of the Moon"
