When John says that Jenna has no right to keep him from staying in the house she says that as legal guardian she does, but he says because he is Elena's biological father he does. Elena was adopted by Johns brother and Jenna was given custody when he died therefor John is incorrect and Jenna has every right to keep him out of the house and away from Elena. See more »

But Stefan brings Elena and Bonnie to stay with her. John explains Damon how to kill an original. Then Damon has a love affair with the journalist Andie Starr.

"Daddy Issues" is a good episode of The Vampire Diaries. Tyler is absolutely confused with his situation and losing his real friends because he trusts on the destructive Jules. Uncle John is probably the nastiest characters of this show and unfortunately he is back. The poor Caroline has suffered a lot in this episode but her friends help her to overcome the trauma. My vote is seven.
