Better episode than the previous one...
11 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Well first of all, according to me the first episode was a bust but this one had a few answers and questions of course (TVD specialty). In this episode we got to know the strength of Silas & his weaknesses & according to me, this episode has set the tone for the rest of the season 5. But I can't help to notice that Ian & Nina are probably the best actors of the show but they aren't doing the job as well as they did in previous seasons, Specially Nina. The scene where Elena tried to kill Damon was not up to mark. I found it to be under rehearsed. But Paul is doing a pretty good job as Silas. Thankfully the long distance situation is over, it wasn't gonna work anyways. Having said that, we're left with many anxious questions at the end of episode like, Where's Stefan? Who are travelers & how is their purpose different from hunters? What was Megan's relation with Elene's dad? Looking forward to next episodes & I'll be back next week with my review. Cheers!!!
