Doing the Right Thing

"Founder's Day" is the best and last episode of the First Season of The Vampire Diaries. The story is very well written with Damon contradictorily doing the right thing and very different from the evil vampire from the beginning of the Season. The boring Jeremy may become an interesting character with his extreme attitude. But the surprising conclusion, with Elena kissing Damon and then the disclosure of the secret, seems to indicate a promising sequel. One question: Elena is the daughter of Isobel and John, but she is a dead ringer of Katherine. What is the connection? My vote is nine.
