Storyline

Alaric has informed the ancestral council, which agreed to depose monsters-compromised sheriff and mayoress and resume the ruthless hunt for vampires. The Salvatore brother make a pact to accept whoever Elena chooses, but she explains to Matt she must, yet can't decide. Original Elijah is back and convinces Stefan and Elena, to Damon's horror, to let his family help them deal with Alaric and Klaus. Tyler convinces Caroline she must leave him and flee as his bloodline is doomed by Klaus's fate, but when Alaric finally gets to his storage-hidden coffin and strikes with the last ultimate stake, the results are utterly different, due to a switch no vampire notices yet. Written by KGF Vissers

Let's See the Sequel of This Soap Opera
31 December 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Elijah returns to Mystic Falls and requests the corpse of his brother to Stefan and Elena to leave the town and Elena makes a deal with him. Damon is forced to agree to deliver Klaus to Rebekah and hides his coffin in a storage room. Bonnie asks Damon to leave her alone with Klaus for a moment. Meanwhile Sheriff Forbes and Mayoress Lockwood are deposed from their position by the council after being denounced by Alaric, and they ask Caroline and Tyler to leave town. Elena cannot decide between Stefan and Damon, and Matt and Jeremy drug her and Matt drives Elena out of Mystic Falls to protect her.

"The Departed" follows the shape of this terrible "Third Season": the "die-non-die" of The Originals; the boring "soap opera" romance of Elena, not sure whether she makes out with Stefan or Damon; and the annoying and spoiled eighteen or nineteen year-old Elena always deciding what to do instead of the two ancient and experienced vampires. The wooden Nina Dobrev was funny as Katherine; maybe she improves her performance on the next season as a vampire. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "The Departed"
