My Opinion on “The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Review”:

the vampire diaries season 2

source: wikia.com

I thought season 2 was epic. I watch this show for two reasons; the characters and the story and watching all the side stories culminate into an incredible plot and all the characters change and grow in really interesting ways was really fun for me. I’m not a fan of the bull crap sun and moon curse revelation or the whole hybrid thing (way too underworld for my taste) but it was still epic.

This season was a roller-coaster of revelations. Elijah and Klaus added the spice to the show. Every element was perfect. Full of drama, suspense and thriller.. It is much more better then first season. Everyone has done an awesome work.This show is so unique! Once again, i have to say that “Give this show a chance, whether you love or hate vampires. You won’t regret it!”
