Yet another crisis for Mystic Falls. Travellers converge, determined to confront Witches and remove a two thousand year old curse. Meanwhile the Elena-Stefan-Damon love triangle continues - this complicated by doppelgangers, characters possessed, and unexpected reappearances....

The three leads clearly have a great time, storylines giving them greater scope: Paul Wesley shows a much darker side when also as Silas; Ian Somerhalder's Damon ranges from tenderness to exceptionally violent sprees. Special praise for Nina Dobrev as Elena and Katherine (and at least one other actually). Scenes showing her in two major roles convince and impress.

Twenty two episodes crammed with twists and turns. Helpful accompanying notes. Generous bonuses. Note the Question and Answer session on Disc 1, this far better organized than in certain other box sets: presenter unobtrusive, little gush, interesting revelations from creators and cast. (Also self-deprecating digs at the show's absurdities, not least the pretence some characters are still at school.)

Also appealing is a feature celebrating the 100th episode - cast quizzed on various storylines. (Note reactions when asked how many deaths there have been since the Pilot!)

For many addicts, the show can do no wrong - cast charismatic, high production values. Some, though, may feel tension plummets if major characters are forever being killed off only be back again, perhaps even in the same episode. (This overlooking the fact most of them are already dead when you come to think of it.)

Despite reservations and much that confused, I yet again thoroughly enjoyed trying to keep up.
