First there were vamps, then witches... Now, the ghosts - well, it's actually just one ghost, for now - have come to town. Man, Mystic Falls just can't catch a break.
Proving yet again that the word "stall" doesn't exist in the Vampire Diaries' writers' room, "History Repeating" brought Bonnie's first significant adventure as a witch to a close while also revealing the reason for the timing of Damon's return to Mystic Falls. Hint: It's not for the high-school football.
The episode also introduced Matthew Davis (Legally Blonde, Damages) as Alaric Saltzman, the new history teacher. And would you believe it? He's got a ring of his own. Could we be dealing with another creature of the night who's just more of a day person? Or, could that just be what they want you to think? And besides, he's helping out both Jeremy and Aunt Jenna. He can't be all bad, right?
And isn't that just like a guy? The second you get over them, they come knocking at your front door. Literally. Newscaster Logan Fell, last seen - well, being Vicki's first meal as a vampire - showed up on Aunt Jenna's front porch and did all but invite himself in. No, he needs her to do that.
