What’s Ahead: Season two looks to be amazing and fun. Taylor Kinney joins the cast as Mason, the “black sheep” brother of the late Mayor Lockwood, who died in the season one finale. Look for werewolves to surface in season two, as wolves are in the Lockwood bloodlines.
In the season two premiere, Damon realizes he fell victim to “doppelganger hijinks” via Katherine’s kiss. Ian Somerhalder’s performance is excellent, and without giving away any spoilers, let’s just say he does something at the end of the season two premiere that’s shocking, leaving you wondering what Damon does and doesn’t know.
Nina Dobrev, meanwhile, gets to sink her teeth into the role of evil Katherine (“Game on!”), and you can tell she has a blast with it. And Bonnie’s witch powers continue to grow, making her a formidable adversary to anyone who crosses her.
