Elena and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), live with their Aunt Jenna (Sara Canning). Elena seeks comfort from her familiar social circle – best friend Bonnie (Katerina Graham), frenemy Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola), and former boyfriend Matt Donovan(Zach Roerig, Friday Night Lights).
At Mystic Falls High, Elena and her friends become fixated by a mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley, "Fallen"). Stefan and Damon(Ian Somerhalder, Lost) are vampire brothers – one good, one evil – at war for Elena's soul.

Dec 11, 2013I hate to say this. I used to like this show. I don't know if it's the writers, producers or directors, but they keep throwing random storyline like travelers, make Caroline even more annoying than she used to be, have Bonnie experience both sides crap and toy with Matt as if he's a useless human. It is not the worst season (ahem *3*). I don't even know where the direction this show is going anymore. At least, they made Stefan awesome this season. I also feel sorry for Damon having to deal with babysitting.… Expand
