Storyline

A new history teacher, named Alaric Saltzman, arrives and requests to Jeremy that he write an after-hours paper to keep his grades up. Jeremy takes a liking to his new teacher and introduces him to Jenna. Meanwhile, Bonnie continues to have terrifying dreams involving the ghost of her great-grandmother Emily Bennett who is trying to send her a message. Bonnie then decides to hold a séance with Eleana and Caroline to try to contact Emily to find out what she wants. Despite Elena's efforts, Bonnie and Caroline argue over the medallion when Damon continues to pressure Bonnie to return it to him. Also, Damon tells Stefan the true reason he returned to Mystic Falls involving Emily's necklace, and Katherine. Written by matt-282

Bonnie has nightmares with her ancestral Emily that is trying to communicate with her, and she decides to dump the medallion in a field. Elena helps her but when they return to Elena's house with Caroline, they find the necklace back. Caroline suggests them to perform a séance to contact Emily and Bonnie is possessed by Emily. Meanwhile, a new history teacher, Alaric "Rick" Saltzman arrives in Mystic Falls and he gives a second chance to Jeremy. Stefan tries to find the reason why Damon is so interested in Bonnie's necklace. Jenna receives a surprising visit of an uninvited guest.

"History Repeating" is another engaging episode of "The Vampire Diaries", a show that is increasing its intensity and tension along the episodes. Who might be Rick I believe is the greatest question that every fan has. Katherine and the twenty-seven vampires protected by Emily's spell could have been a good plot point but anyway the story was well resolved. The unexpected return of Logan may bring surprises to the plot. Who turned he in a vampire? My vote is eight.
