The Vampire Diapers’ second season premiered on the CW last week, but the series finale will likely be remembered for its most memorable moment.
The season two finale, entitled “The Vampire Killer,” was a bit of a shock, even for fans of the show.
In it, a group of vampires go on a rampage and the main villain is revealed to be the evil Dr. Robert “Bob” Dabney.
It was a bold move for the series, but one that fans quickly appreciated.
The episode also featured a return of some of the character’s favorite scenes from season one, like when Dr. Bob’s daughter, Charlotte, gets a glimpse of her mother.
Fans who have been following the show for quite some time can be forgiven for not being completely convinced that Bob was really the evil mastermind behind all the carnage.
After all, he was never shown as the true villain, just the “vampire killer.”
But fans did catch a glimpse at Dr. Dabneys motives.
It seemed that he was trying to protect Charlotte from the evil vampire who was targeting the town.
After he discovers the town’s only living vampire, he decides to use the town as a stepping stone to bring her to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the other main villains of season two.
As Bob is about to execute Charlotte, Dr. Zane (Matt P. Carter) reveals that Bob’s plan is to capture the other two vampires.
Bob is obviously horrified at the idea of having the other vampires in his possession, but his evil intentions quickly become clear.
While the episode was not particularly good, the twist was a big deal for fans.
While the series always went for a “classic” look, the series had always struggled to deliver on the show’s darker themes.
With season two, The Vampire diaries is now taking a bold new approach.
The first episode of season 2 revealed that the show was heading toward a darker tone.
It began with a mysterious letter, which read “We do not speak of a time that you are yet.”
The letter was followed by a sequence in which a mysterious voice told Bob to take out the vampires he captured, which included a scene of Bob confronting Dr. Hyde.
Bob was about to be executed when Drs.
Zanes daughter Charlotte came running into the room, who had heard the voice.
She revealed that Bob had been the one to take the vampires out, which prompted Bob to finally make peace with Dr. Erikson (Alex O’Loughlin).
The second episode, “The Return,” was another departure from season two’s formula.
Bob had captured the other vampire and planned to use him to bring back Charlotte.
Instead, Bob realized that Charlotte was a better candidate to be used as bait.
After Bob’s capture, he used the other three vampires as the bait.
Bob tried to convince Dr. W.E.G.B. Wells (Chris Cooper) to give Charlotte the vampire serum to cure her of her illness.
He wanted Charlotte to give him the serum because she wanted to be his girlfriend.
But when he was unable to get his way, Wells convinced Bob to release Charlotte.
However, Bob then discovered that the serum was actually a part of a plan by Dr. Ripper (Josh Dallas) to use Charlotte as bait in order to get back the other four vampires.
It would be another season for The Vampire Dives, and season three is now set to follow.
