Let's See if the Series Improves
12 December 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Alaric is submitted to a tomography and exams by Dr. Fells and he gives his ring back to Elena. Damon comes to the hospital to bring Alaric back home and he has an argument with Elena about Stephan. Caroline helps Bonnie to adapt Abby to her new life as a vampire. Mystic Falls is restoring the Wickery Bridge and Damon goes to the ceremony with Alaric and Meredith. They see Rebekah snooping around and Damon meets the vampire Sage that has come to the town seeking out her lover Finn. Abby attacks Jamie and decides to leave her home. Damon and Sage plot a scheme to read the mind of Rebekah and Sage finds that a white oak wood may kill the originals. Damon discovers that the original Wickery Bridge was made of this wood and he tells Sage. Meanwhile Alaric's alter ego stabs Meredith trying to kill her.

"Break on Through" is a good episode of "The Vampire Diaries" after many tedious shows. Let's see if the series improves since this time the unbearable Elena has had a minor participation. My vote is eight.
