Vampire Diaries: Top 5 OMG Reveals of Season 1

Vampire Diaries is not a surprising hit out of this season's freshman shows considering the ongoing vampire craze, but it is packed with surprising, and so very perfectly CW, OMG moments!



So, as Season 1 concludes tonight, let's look back at this thrilling first season with what I think have been the top 5 crazy, awesome, jaw-dropping revelations all season long. Check 'em out then comment below with your top fav shockers.


5. Stefan Saved Elena's Life

Yes, we've gotten the idea at this point in the show that there will be more life-saving between these love birds, but the revelation that Stefan pulled Elena out of the sinking car the night her parents died was pretty mind-blowing! It seems vampire-human relationships will always be enhanced by them saving each other's lives fairly often, but this pre-show kickoff to the habit for Stefan and Elena made for a cool dimension to the plot and their relationship.


4. Katherine was not in the Tomb

I suppose they couldn't go bringing Katherine back early-on in the first season, but I was actually surprised when, after centuries of work towards opening that tomb, Damon discovered Katherine was not there! They couldn't have made it that easy, but I had thought the complications would come after finding her there, not because she was not there. So... where is she? How did she end up somewhere else? Can Damon ever find her or does this have to be a series-long hunt since the hunt and her mysterious character are such a backbone for the show?


3. OMG, They Killed Vicki!

On shows like Lost, fans have come to expect that if it looks like a main character is going to die, he/she is a goner. But on the average show, main characters don't usually die. And certainly not after they've almost died then been "saved," because usually it'd just be lame to dangle that possible death, take it away, then do it, because that ruins the shock of the actual death. But this time, round 2 of taking out seemingly main character Vicki was truly shocking. I think they were able to pull this off because, being a vampire show, there's an extra level to hope for a character's survival since it can be assumed death = turning into a vampire, as was at first the case for Vicki. But alas, her craziness didn't get eliminated with her human life, forcing the biggest surprise around her actual death: good boy Stefan doing the deed!


2. Elena's Real Parents

I was so distracted by the focus on Elena looking exactly like Katherine that I was shocked when a step towards solving that mystery was revealed: Elena was adopted! We also discover that not only was Elena adopted, but her mother, Isobel, was history teacher Alaric Saltzman's wife, who by the by, is in town hunting the vampire he thinks killed his wife: Damon. My head hurts. Oh yeah, and you know Elena's "Uncle" John? Her dad. This is all very confusing, yet all I could think of when that detail was revealed was Buster on Arrested Development yelling about Oscar being his uncle-father! But somehow I feel I may be one of few crossover fans between Vampire Diaries and Arrested Development...


1. Stefan Turned Damon

My favorite part about the second half of this season has been Stefan's struggles after drinking Elena's blood. Most "good" vampires like Stefan (originally), Bill on True Blood and the Twilight series' Edward don't show their dark sides. They're always portrayed as so protective of their human love interests as they fight off the bad vamps wishing to suck their ladies' blood, that we never get a sneak peek at what it'd be like if they went full-vamp and couldn't control themselves, even around that lady love. But recently on Vampire Diaries, we've not only seen Stefan's dark side, but we discovered that way back in the day, it was actually Damon who didn't want to become a vampire, and Stefan who first got a taste of blood (from his father, no less), and turned first! He then pushed Damon into turning which was utterly shocking considering the opposite brother dynamic we're used to for them. I don't know about you, but my jaw dropped and stayed there for that whole scene!


What do you think? Were these the most shocking moments/reveals of the season? What do you think have been the biggest OMG reveals?

I am so excited about Katherine coming back, I knew she would have to show at some point, but the way she did...DUDE amazing.Also on the Tyler front, as a reader of the books, kinda think it's awesome there bringing the warewolf side of things into it.But hate on me all you like, but I was kinda excited when Damon and Elena kissed, too bad he really kissed Katherine, seriously poor Damon he tries to be good but BAM Katherine comes back, I am so excited about season 2!

I'm sure this article was written before the season finale, so they really need to redo it and add like five more just from that episode alone!
-Finally starting to reveal the Lockwoods are werewolves. If Tyler is not aware of what he is yet, he may have a tough time down the road, especially now that his father is DEAD and cannot help him through this.
-I'm so bummed they killed off Anna! I loved her so much, and thought she was really good for Jeremy.
-Looks like Jeremy is on his way to becoming a vampire, though without Anna, he is probably doing it for all the wrong reasons. I wonder if he will actually be changed. I noticed when Anna gave him the blood, they didn't have her mention to him he will need to feed in order to complete the transition. Maybe I just pick up on too many little details, or maybe it was because she didn't anticipate on dying and figured she would help him through it.
-Damon is showing a lot more emotion and honestly seems to be trying at redemption, I'm guessing for Elena's sake. He loves her, truly cares for her, and I see him as great competition for Stephan. I'm sure he is not going to back down just because his brother wants him to do so!
-Katherine is back in town! I was actually not expecting her to just show up the way she did. Oh well, she killed John so I can't hate her too much yet. Though I was extremely disappointed to know the kiss between Damon and Elena wasn't real. :(
I absolutely LOVE this show! The first season ended with a bang, and it's going to be a difficult wait for however many months until its return!
