The Vampire Diaries 3.11 "Our Town" Review

The Vampire Diaries celebrates Caroline's (Candice Accola) 18th birthday so that's a time to be cheerful right? It would seem not, especially as this is the first birthday for Miss Forbes since she has become a vampire and this excellent episode explores letting go of the old and embracing the new. This sounds pretty simple but obstacles such as a power play between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) makes this both dangerous and complicated.

Stefan is ready to make his move against Klaus and wants to see if his theory about the importance of the coffins is correct by calling Klaus' bluff. This is a dangerous, ballsy and perhaps stupidly crazy move that Stefan is set upon doing, with or without Damon's (Ian Somerhalder) consent. The aim of the game here is to get the hybrid army out of town and to see if Klaus would actually blink and agree to Stefan's demands. It turns out that Stefan really can be the better villain and actually succeeds in his plan; but at what cost? The humanity on/off switch analogy was employed again but it turns out there is actually a third option; the switch is fried.
