Introducing Mikael, 15 November 2013
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Elena meets Stephan at the high school and he tells that he is watching her following Klaus's order. Rebekah, who is living at the Salvatore's house, goes to the same classroom of Elena. Elena plots with Alaric and Damon to lock Stephan in the dungeon of their house. Tyler is fascinated and worshiping his sire bond with Klaus. Vicky convinces Matt to summon him from the afterlife while Anna tells to Jeremy that darkness is surrounding Vicky that has made a pact with an original witch. Vicky hits Matt on the head and seeks out Elena as part of her agreement with the witch. Meanwhile, Damon stays with Rebekah while Elena and Alaric abduct Stephan. Katherine awakes Mikael and he confesses that he does not like blood of living thing but vampire blood.

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" introduces the vampire hunter Mikael and Katherine has a surprise. In one of the last episodes, the Salvatore's mansion was transferred to Elena for her safety; therefore, who invited Rebekah in? The wooden Nina Dobrev saves her performances in the show with the role of Katherine since she is awful performing Elena. What if Katherine finally dies? My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
