the blood­suck­ers are back!

the vam­pire di­aries Sea­son 2 Fri­days (from 20 Fe­bru­ary) SABC2 22:30

Sea­son 1’s fi­nale on sabc2 in april 2014 made it very clear that mys­tic falls will never be the same again in the vam­pire di­aries (2009cur­rent). with elena’s evil dop­pel­gänger kather­ine (both played by nina do­brev) show­ing up in town af­ter 164 years, the sal­va­tore broth­ers will have their hands full in sea­son 2. af­ter all, blood­suck­ers ste­fan and da­mon (paul wes­ley and ian somer­halder) are who they are to­day thanks to con­niv­ing kather­ine, so this re­u­nion be­tween the maker and her prog­eny should be any­thing but dull.

sea­son 2 picks up on fri­day 20 fe­bru­ary right where we left off in the nail-bit­ing sea­son 1 fi­nale. with caro­line and tyler (candice ac­cola and michael trevino) trapped in a car wreck, things aren’t look­ing great for them. but as we’ll soon see, any­thing’s pos­si­ble in mys­tic falls… in­clud­ing bring­ing the dead back to life. caro­line will be the first to sink her teeth into vam­pirism when kather­ine turns her, against her will of course. by episode 2 on fri­day 27 fe­bru­ary, caro­line’s blood­lust sees her make her first kill.

year of the kat

kather­ine will have a lot more to smile about as the sea­son pro­gresses. hav­ing taken on elena’s iden­tity, she’s fool­ing ev­ery­one – in­clud­ing da­mon and ste­fan – that she’s the sweet elena gil­bert they’ve been bat­tling to win over since day 1. “you see how crazy she is and how ev­ery­thing she does is for her­self. like boys and how she likes to use them as her toys. they’re just there for her amuse­ment,” nina says about her char­ac­ter’s evil twin. for­tu­nately, kather­ine won’t be fool­ing the broth­ers for too long and by episode 3 on 6 march, fans can look for­ward to da­mon and kather­ine go­ing fang to fang. “kather­ine is the only one that da­mon fears,” ian ad­mits. “she has a few more cen­turies than him and is stronger than him,” he grins.

a bad moon ris­ing

mean­while, the vam­pire-fear­ing town also has a new species to deal with now that tyler knows he’s a were­wolf. thanks to a nifty magic spell, tyler won’t be chang­ing into a hairy wolf just yet. “it’s la­tent,” show cre­ator kevin wil­liamson says about the were­wolf curse. “it’s a re­pressed curse. it’s trig­gered by one par­tic­u­lar event.” the first half of the sea­son will see tyler dig­ging through fam­ily his­tory and town se­crets to find out ex­actly what that “event” is and by episode 11 (which should air in early may), things will come to a shock­ing con­clu­sion.

keep­ing it orig­i­nal

a cou­ple of new char­ac­ters will also make their un­wel­come ap­pear­ance, like klaus (joseph mor­gan) and his brother eli­jah (daniel gil­lies) – the orig­i­nal vam­pires of mys­tic falls (from vam­pire di­aries spin-off the orig­i­nals, 2013-cur­rent). “klaus will kiss you or kill you; it’s all the same to him,” joseph warns. other char­ac­ters to keep a close eye on are bon­nie and jeremy.

bon­nie (kat gra­ham) is a bud­ding witch and is just dis­cov­er­ing how pow­er­ful she can be. elena’s lit­tle brother jeremy (steven r mcqueen) is strug­gling to come to terms with be­ing hu­man in a town over-run by su­per­nat­u­ral weirdos. if this sea­son doesn’t have enough juicy su­per­nat­u­ral ac­tion to sink your teeth into, we don’t know what will!

ste­fan, elena and da­mon are back for some vam­pire fun.

tyler’s got some­thing to howl about in sea­son 2.

caro­line’s got a killer new out­look on life.
