Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Michael Narducci, Based on the books by L.J. Smith Director: Chris Grismer      Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: Nov 1, 2012 You might think that the title of the latest episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, “The Killer” would be a nod to Mystic Falls’ resident vampire hunter Connor Jordan (Todd Williams), but I really feel that it is referring to the killer inside of Elena (Nina Dobrev) that breaks the surface in this episode and shows us all just how close to coming apart she really is.

Stars: Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder Writer: Bret Matthews & Rebecca Sonnenshine, Based on the books by L.J. Smith Director: Joshua Butler      Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: Nov 1, 2012 With the latest episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, “The Five”, we’ve entered the dangerous territory of too much mythology layered in upon itself.
