The Vampire Diaries “The New Deal” Review

I love The Vampire Diaries. It’s like a friend who is occasionally annoying but generally pretty awesome. Alas, this week’s ‘The New Deal’ was one of the annoying episodes for me. That’s not to say it wasn’tgood, it just wasn’t particularly interesting.

TVD barrels ahead with plot, fitting more into one season than some series get into two or three seasons. But it can’t always be action and adventure — sometimes a little exposition and talking is needed. This week was full of exposition, explanations and ‘oh look, something new’. A few things did happen, however, which leaves us with dead Becky, a potentially non-non-dead Alaric, and Jeremy set to leave town.
