Vampire Diaries Episode Recap: "The Turning Point" Episode 10

The last Vampire Diaries of the decade also (ironically) capped off ten episodes of death, witchcraft and drama - MAJOR drama.

Viewers have gone on quite a journey since first setting foot in Mystic Falls and that can be attributed to one thing - consistently solid writing. Show runners Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson aren't content with simply spinning their wheels.

This is the story of Mystic Falls and its inhabitants - living and undead. There's a lot of moving pieces to this story and boy are they moving. I noted in my very first recap for the series just how many characters are being juggled in this show and I can't believe how far we've come with them in only ten chapters.

So, what happened into night's chapter, "The Turning Point?"

Logan, didn't anyone ever tell you "No means no?:" Picking up precisely where we left off (a great way to start any episode), Aunt Jenna refused to invite newly-risen vampire Logan Fell into her home. But not because of the vampire thing. Think more like the, "He's Just Not That Into You" thing. Last week, Aunt Jenna was seen hitting things off with (mystical?) ring-wearing, history-teaching Alaric Saltzman who, along with a good brain wiping from Damon, is responsible for positive changes in Jeremy. So no, she doesn't have vamp-dar. But, she saved herself. A win is a win, right?

Yeah, tell that to Daphne: Poor, poor Daphne. Aunt Jenna's wise decision causes jogger/weather guy fan Daphne to have the worst celebrity encounter EVER! Logan's hunger (remember Vicki?) has taken over and his emotions are out of control. Outside Aunt Jenna's home, Logan helps himself to the aforementioned Daphne, who stops her exercise routine to meet the local celebrity, weatherman and now vampire.

Buffy and The Scoobies they are not: Via Sheriff Forbes, the council once again requests the help of Damon Salvatore in their quest to rid Mystic Falls of the vampire (or, vampires) plaguing it. Gee, I wonder why they're not making any progress on that.

Man of the House: Hundreds of years old or not, Damon is a man and Stefan is a boy. Or at least, that's what it looks like to the outside world. This was played up twice early on in the episode.
