Putting the “Dairies” back in “The Vampire Diaries”
Tonight the diaries trope finally came back! For a show based around the diaries of Elena and Stefan, it’s a trope that is rarely used and was last season in the first few episodes. I didn’t miss it at all, but this week it was used perfectly. Elena’s reading of Stefan’s diary and the flashbacks to the 20s provided two different views of the same events. Throw in Klaus’ retelling and we get the full picture of just who The Ripper was during the roaring ‘20s.
