After a long break, two of our favorite shows are back with brand new episodes.

‘The Vampire Diaries’

On ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ Klaus’s anger about Stefan stealing his family’s coffins turns to violence. Klaus threatens harm to everyone until his family is returned. Can Elena and Damon keep their loved ones safe long enough for Stefan to complete his plan?
