The show has aired its new season with episode "The New Deal". I have to say that I did not like this episode. I know there was going to be more battles with Klaus, but I thought there would be more action in the new season. Come on ........... In the beginning of the series I did not like Jeremy, I thought he was the weakest link, but as the series progressed we began to see his character grow especially when he hooked up with Bonnie. Now they did not let that romance last long...... and now it looks as if they are taking Jeremy out of the picture for a while or completely. Damon and Elana seem to be snogging more, which pisses me off because she should be Stephen. When are they going to give Stephen back his memory? UGH...... after all this wait for the season, I feel let down. I will continue to watch it hoping that the next episodes have more action to them.
