The series is back with new stories and mysteries in the second season. The new season starts with Alaric takes a deep look in the night Malivore was destroyed. On another side, Hope still has a big desire for finding the way back to Mystic Falls.
"I'll Never Give Up Hope" was the worst episode of the series. For a show that had so much going for it last season, I hoped the premiere would expand the mythology in a way that would make it worthwhile.
