Goofs

Stefan says Mason only has superhuman abilities during the full moon. However, at the carnival Stefan learned that Mason has superhuman strength even without a full moon when they arm wrestled, and Damon witnessed Mason's superhuman strength and agility when Mason fought a carny. See more »

Quotes

Mason Lockwood: Tell your brother to watch his back.
Stefan Salvatore: Well I'm guessing that he only has to worry about that during a full moon, otherwise your not as strong. Am I right? Or you would have killed Damon by now. There's one of you, there's two if us. I think you're the one who has to watch his back.

Disclosing Secrets
11 September 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Mason discloses to Tyler how he triggered the Lockwood family curse and turned into a werewolf when he accidentally killed his friend Jimmy in Florida. Meanwhile Stefan and Elena decide to simulate a fight to lure Katherine. Stefan, Damon and Mason go to a picnic and Mason tells to Liz that Stefan and Damon are vampires. Then Mason goes to the woods and Stefan and Damon confront him, but the Salvatore brothers are hit by Liz and two deputies and Liz injects them with verbena. Tyler discloses the secret of his family to Jeremy and he decides to give the moonstone to Mason. Caroline is forced to expose herself to her mother to save Stefan and Damon. Mason brings the stone to a car parked in a dark area and delivers it to Katherine, who had plotted the attack of Jimmy.

"Kill or Be Killed" is an engaging episode of "The Vampire Diaries" where secrets are disclosed: Mason to Tyler about the Lockwood family curse; Mason to Liz about who the Salvatore brothers really are; Tyler to Jeremy about the curse of his family; and Caroline to Liz about what she has become. However the secret of the moonstone is still a mystery to be revealed on the next episodes. My vote is eight.
