It's Elena's first day back at Mystic Falls High School since the tragic death of her parents. Along with her Aunt Jenna, Elena tries her best to look after her troubled younger brother, Jeremy, and salvage what family they have left. The first day is already shaping up to be a struggle for Elena until she meets the mysterious new kid at school, Stefan. Elena is touched that he can relate to what she's going through. What Elena doesn't know is that Stefan is a vampire, constantly resisting the urge to taste her blood. As their undeniable connection grows deeper, Stefan's dangerous older brother, Damon, shows up to wreak havoc on the town of Mystic Falls - and claim Elena for himself.

The Season 8 premiere was a pretty wonderful episode, particularly if you enjoy when TVD goes full horror.

[It] reminded me of the first season with it's scares, drama and mystery surrounding our new villain leaving us with a ton of questions like what does the siren want?

Knowing how fast The Vampire Diaries blows through plot this might not be the final evil, but at least it's being set up to be a good one. It's just what they need.
