The Vampire Diaries. Season 3, Episode 6: "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

Another supernatural dead character back. Boo-hoo.

Okay. I think The Vampire Diaries is a little trigger-happy with ghosts now. I'm glad Vicky is out. (I did mention that she's nothing but bad news and that Matt's really a newbie and really stupid.) Loving Anna and Jeremy, yes. But Mason, really? I hope he's in-and-out like Vicky. Unless there's a grand reunion of ghost characters towards the end of the season. Please don't turn into a show afraid to kill characters and/or to actually let them stay dead.

Complication after complication, that's what seems to be the trend here. The more people know of the supernatural stuff, the more stuff to complicate. It's a set-up episode, really, so let's just see how Mikael (who is on a vampire-blood diet—or is it non-living-thing diet, meaning he can also feed on werewolves?) fits in Mystic Falls, with "Barbie Klaus" and Ripper Stefan in senior year, semi-old-douchebag-self Tyler messing up Caroline's perky self, Bonnie and Matt finding something to do, Alaric hating on Damon (I really miss their bromance, but I miss more the bad-ass Damon who I know is in there somewhere!) and teaching Elena how to defend herself (I think it's about time, don't you think?).

All these complications, that's okay—as long as all the loose ends tie up together perfectly. So far, the writers have made a relatively pretty awesome job of it.

The episode's title is from a Nirvana song? Seriously?

Yep, I think they're trying to remind the audience the characters are still in high school. It's the gang's first day as seniors. Kinda like the pilot episode, only back then, they were juniors. Labo. Haha.
