What do I conclude after watching The Vampire Diaries Season (2010-2011)?
Here is the complete synopsis of 22 Episodes of The Vampire Diaries Season 2 in my own way. So let’s begin the Vampire Diaries season 2 review. Just like the first season, this one is also interesting. The first season ended with the return of Katherine. She tries to kill John Gilbert. Jeremy decides to kill himself and become a vampire after Anna’s death. Elena arrives at home and saves both of them. Caroline was injured and admitted to the hospital. Damon realizes after talking to Elena and Jenna that he kissed Katherine and she has returned to mystic falls.

At the mayor’s funeral, Katherine showed up as Elena. Bonnie after touching her recognize and tries to attack but Katherine is stronger and doesn’t get affected. Stefan arrives and starts to ask questions to Katherine about her plans. She didn’t answer any.
The same day, Mason Lockwood arrives, who is uncle of Tyler. Mrs. Lockwood told Damon that Mason is not part of the council. Katherine tells Stefan that she has returned for him because she loves him. Stefan tells her that she hates her and she compelled him to love her all those years ago. She stabs Stefan and says that this is not the end, it’s the start. Elena tends Stefan as he heals. Damon being Damon starts teasing him and persuading him to fight reminding him about the kiss. Stefan says that he’ll not fight him because they are brothers and they need to stick together. He also tells him that he cannot hate him for being in love with Elena after all those emotionless years.
At the Salvatore house, Damon is drinking and Katherine shows up. She tries to kiss him but he refuses. But then he does the same. Suddenly he breaks off and asks her one question and says that he’ll forget these 145 years and start anew if she answers. But she tells him that she has always loved Stefan and leaves. Heartbroken and hurt Damon arrives at Gilbert’s house where Elena is astonished to see him. He is drunk and asks her about her feelings for him. She says see loves Stefan and always will. Angrily Damon wrings Jeremy’s neck causing him to die. Elena starts to cry but is relieved to see the ring of John on Jeremy’s hand. she is disappointed and angry at Damon.

Giving in to the temptation, she drinks blood from the blood bag and compels the nurse to discharge her. At college, everything goes normally. Uncle Mason asks Tyler about Moonstone. At the carnival, Damon threatens Jeremy. Stefan arrives and tells Damon about some arm wrestle challenge between Lockwood’s. They arrive and Stefan is challenged. His failures and Damon’s doubts about Mason being supernatural are heightened. He compels a boy to mess with Mason to agitate and make him angry. The Salvatore brothers watch as they fight and get confirmed that the mason is not normal.

According to which vampires are slaves to the sun and werewolves to the moon. She also informs that a werewolf bite can kill a vampire.

My Opinion on “The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Review”:
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 has been a roller-coaster of revelations. Elijah and Klaus added spice to the show. Every element was perfect. Full of drama, suspense and thriller.. It is much better than the first season. Everyone has done 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!”
