Are you going to put a spoiler warning up as people will no doubt be discussing plot points?
When the best moments of the season so far are cameos by non-regulars (Alaric, Elijah), it's a bit concerning.
Oh, actually, I take that back, I do like the actor they cast as the professor who took over Bonnie's gram's class. I liked him in The Tudors and recognized him immediately.
But I hope the hunter's character gets better as he's boring so far. Though it might finally give poor Jeremy something to do after a few seasons of well, nothing.
