The Last Day - The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Episode 20
1 May 2013 | by ivo-cobra8See all my reviews

The Vampire Diaries Season 2 is the best season so far ever in the show. In The Vampire Diaries Seasons 1 - 2 are the best one and second season beats the first season. Season 3 is really awesome good and season 4 is bad. I am planing to buy all three Seasons on Blu-ray. The first season my fiancé bought me i am still waiting till she shipped me the box. Here in the second season you have, werewolf's,Witches and Hybrids. They are not just vampires like they were in the first season.Nina Dobrev is simply amazing actress ever she portrays two roles one is Elena Gilbert and the second time she is Katherine Pierce a identical to an ancestor, Katherine Pierce 's real name is Katerina Petrova from Europe Bulgaria and she turn Stefan into a vampire.

In this Seasons we know more about Katherine,she was running from Klaus when she met him trough Elijah in episode 19. She was in love with Stefan and she always wanted Stefan.She was running away from Klaus for 500 years, Trevor and Rose helped her, Klaus couldn't find her,so he killed her whole family for betrayal.She born a child but her parents took her away. The Katherine story was awesome and amazing.

Also guest staring in the cast are Taylor Kinney as Mason Lockwood, Tyler's Uncle, a werewolf who comes to town after his brother dies.Michaela McManus as Jules a friend of Mason from Florida a werewolf who comes to town looking for answers about Mason's disappearance and she was helping Tyler after he broke his werewolf's curse and he was turning into a werewolf. Bryton James and Randy J. Goodwin plays son and father both warlocks, Bryton James is Luka Martin and Randy J. Goodwin is Dr.Jonas Martin they both work for Elijah when they tried to get their own daughter/sister back from Klaus. They show in the middle of Season 2 but dies by the end of the second season.Daniel Gillies as Elijah Mikaelson brother of Klaus and the best British actor Joseph Morgan as Niklaus "Klaus" Mikaelson a hybrid and the original he appears in episode 19 Klaus.

This season and episode has romance and great music better than the fourth season is. In second season my favorite best episodes are: Crying Wolf,The Last Day and The Sun Also Rises,they are the best ones.

Damon lies in the bed in his bedroom and hears Elena,Stefan and Elijah talking about Klaus 's ritual that he is planing to break his curse to become a true hybrid, he is planing to make his own bloodline and race. Damon intervenes with he dose not agree with their plans Damon quote: "I'll write her a great eulogy!" says and he want's to use Bonnie to kill Klaus but Elena disagree.She want's to sacrifice her self for Klaus ritual.He burst in his bedroom upset Elena comes after him to talk him out of his sentences.So he grabs Elena and give's her his blood so that she will turn into a vampire so that Klaus couldn't make his ritual. Stefan grabs him and kick's him away. Out of anger the brothers starts fighting each other the first time in season two,last time they were fighting against each other was in the first season. This is the best scene in the episode Damon and Stefan fight Damon totally kick Stefan's ass, he can always kick Stefan.Damon is faster and stronger than Stefan is. This is the second time in second season that Damon hurt Stefan and Elena. In 1st episode Season 2 "The Return" were he kill out of rage and anger Jeremy and Elena burst with tears says she hates Damon.

Carol Lockwood has a terrible accident she fall's down the stairs in her house and hurt her self, thanks to Maddox one of Klaus warlocks this brings back the return of Tyler Lockwood after he left in Episode "Crying Wolf" back to his hometown with Jules in the hospital when they were running from vampires and learning how to control their transformation. In front the hospital Tyler meets Caroline but are captured and drugged by Maddox and Greta Martin.

In the Mystic Grill Liz and Matt are talking about Caroline and Damon about knowing their secrets they are both Vampires and what to do about it. Matt was spying on Caroline pretending he loves her and that he doesn't know anything about her secret.

Stefan and Elena goes on a trip in the woods Stefan take's her with him and they see waterfall and it is so beautiful. I really love and enjoyed this scene between Stelena. They climb on the mountain on the top seeing sunrise goes down. Elena talk's her feelings about not wanting to become a vampire,Stefan cheers her. This is the best scene between Stelana The most memories quot Elena says that i love is : "But he did this to me, Stefan, which means he doesn't really know what love is. And to be honest, I don't know if I do. I'm 17 years old. How am I supposed to know any of this yet?" Most wonderful quotes Elena and Stefan says are in this scene.I love them both to death I love Stelena.

After Damon with Alaric met for the first time Klaus in the Grill bar he went into his apartment with Ric to confront Katherine about where Klaus has hidden his werewolf and he learns that Klaus has a vampire Caroline Forbes and Tyler Lockwood hiding in the tomb. He head's it there on the way. In the woods, in front the tomb he meet's with Maddox,Klaus's warlock and he fights off with him but Maddox is stronger,Matt shots him and he save Damon from Maddox, Damon snaps Maddox's neck hit's Matt with his riffle in the head when he was treating him. Damon save Tyler and Caroline in the tomb from Klaus.
