go and seek Stefan only to find him with a new girl friend, a new home, a new
job (as a mechanic), and yet, they all are driven to find the whereabouts of
Damon and Bonnie. In his own violent and unique way, Enzo tries to reinforce
his desire to make Stefan miserable if he doesn’t try to find his brother. Mystic Falls
I enjoyed the first two episodes of this season’s The Vampire Diaries because it captured some of the familiar threads of the past shows and promised a new slant of intrigue and adventure and even the Vampire power and magic which the cast of The Vampire Diaries can weave into quite an interesting tale.
