The Vampire Diaries offered the most memorable cliffhanger of any series last season. The [second] season premiere builds thrillingly on that shocker.

Hidden behind a trite storyline is solid writing, intriguing storytelling, and one of the most frivolously addictive shows on air right now.

In traditional Vampire Diaries fashion, the finale of season 2 offers plenty of twists and turns, topped with a few cliff hangers for fans to dwell on until next season, the most intriguing of which will be the role reversal of Damon and Stefan.
