The birds-eye view of the city in the beginning of the episode is the same shot that is used in "The Flash" when Barry is running around Central City with a birds-eye view of him. See more »


Caroline Forbes: One day, you're helping Lily, the next you're here being nice. Just pick a side, Enzo... Us or them.
Enzo: Oh, God. You sound just like her.
Caroline Forbes: That's because she doesn't trust you, and honestly, neither do I.

Heretic New family in Mystic Falls .. Elena is not here "good" .. so with a new story and no slow dull characters i think the show is going to be fine this season
9 October 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

Let me first express my great happiness not seeing Nina Dobrev on the show ... just felt the show went back to its high rating.

The Story goes on ,, No Elena .. a new mysterious rock appears to be the new plot .. Lorenzo is here too and the mother of the Salvatore brothers is "Trying" to adapt with the new situation in mystic falls but her new/old heretic "family" of witches/vamps are not likely to stay under control.

The script is still good .. the rhythm of the Drama is still same as the last season .. thou i reckon the thrill is about to peak in this season as there are so many indications "Exploded" ;) in this episode so there shall be a lot of thrill a lot of actions as i dearly hope.

Also imposing a new cast members from the old days with a lovely "British" accent sounded fresh and of course ditching the cast members the made the show a bit dull and slow in last season "Elena, the sheriff " .. for a new developments i wish like Damon and Bonnie fall in love "which appears soo probable this season".

Aaaand Finally, Three years from Now "Someone" is back to kill the brothers .. that's new so Let's watch and enjoy ;)
