The Vampire Mastermind and Parenthood
26 July 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Stefan gives jewelries with verbena to Elena to distribute among her family and friends to protect them against the new vampire in Mystic Falls. Jeremy buys a pizza and invites the delivery boy, who is the vampire that Elena hit with her car, to enter his home. Jeremy also gets an A in his history work. Bonnie flirts with the bartender and washed up football star Ben in the Mystic Grill and Matt starts working there to make money to his family. However, he does not feel comfortable to make out with Caroline. Elena receives a phone call and is threatened by the vampire. However she flees to Stefan's house and he gives her watch / compass back to her to inform if there is a vampire around her. Anna insists in harassing Jeremy. Elena questions about her adoption to Jenna and she tells that her mother's name was Isabel, a sixteen year-old teenager that disappeared after delivering Elena. Damon is looking for a spell to bring Katherine back to him and Stefan offers to help him, provided he leaves Mystic Fall with Katherine and never returns to the town. Stefan saves Elena from an attack of the vampire that escapes and he decides to go with Elena and Damon to the ball to protect her and find the vampire. Bonnie and Caroline leave the ball and go to the Mystic Grill expecting to see Ben and Matt. Meanwhile Anna meets the vampire that is called Noah and she advises him to avoid trouble with Damon and Stefan. Noah goes to the ball and when he is ready to attack Elena, Stefan and Damon protects her and Stefan kills him with a stake through his heart. Matt and Caroline kiss each other and stay with each other.

"Unpleasantville" shows who the real vampire mastermind that Damon and Stefan are seeking out is. The relationship between Elena and Alaric Satzman seems to be deeper than a student-teacher one. It is difficult to understand why the boring Jeremy does not pay attention to the gorgeous Anna. Broken heated at the age of 15? This is too silly. The rest of the episode is basically teen shallow romances. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Unpleasantville"
