The End of a Bloodline, 12 December 2013
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Damon hides from Elena that Alaric and Damon are preparing stakes with the Name Plate of the Wickery Bridge. Then the trio meets Caroline, Matt and Elena and they distribute twelve stakes to kill the original. Meanwhile Klaus and Rebekah abduct Bonnie to force her to make a spell to disconnect the Original vampires. Then they kidnap Damon to torture him. When Stephan, Matt and Caroline kill Finn, the Original vampires do not die since Bonnie has succeeded in her spell. But they discover that Finn's bloodline dies with the vampire. Stephan deliver eight stakes to Klaus and Rebekah to release Damon, but Klaus compels Damon and finds that there are three stakes still missing. But one of them was hidden by Alaric's alter ego.

"The Murder of One" is another terrible episode of "The Vampire Diaries". The timing and coincidences along the story is irritating and Elena is back with her annoying behavior. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "The Murder of One"
