Storyline

While interacting with Uncle Mason, Tyler discretely looks for his part in dark family secrets. After breaking up a party at the swimming hole, Mason makes the shift in the basement of the old Lockwood property; Tyler follows him into the basement ruins. Mason, who chained himself up there, has to flee and transform into a werewolf in his truck in the woods. After saving Matt, who was bitten by newly-turned vampire Caroline, Stefan is in those same woods, fearing lycanthropes who are vampires' natural enemies. Damon is not amused how Elena plays him while on an eventful trip with Alaric to Duke University to search through Isobel's research on folklore and paranormal phenomena, which her assistant continues.

Lon Chaney, Lon Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi
19 August 2013 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Elena, Damon and Alaric head to Isobel's office at the Duke University while Stefan stays in Mystic Falls with Caroline. The group meets Isobel's assistant that believes that Elena is Katherine. Stefan succeeds in convincing Bonnie to cast a spell in a ring to protect Caroline against the sunlight and they go to an old Lockwoods real estate where Tyler has organized a party at a lake. Meanwhile Tyler follows Mason in the woods and discovers a secret underground prison. Later Mason chains himself but he leaves the place and transforms into a werewolf in his truck. When he attacks Stefan and Caroline, Tyler controls the beast and save his friends.

"Bad Moon Rising" introduces a new supernatural creature in Mystic Falls. Now the town has not only vampires and witch, but also a werewolf that is the natural enemy of vampires. Damon is responsible for one of the funniest and wittiest lines of this series, when he compares Mason with Lon Chaney, Tyler with Lon Chaney Jr. and himself with Bela Lugosi. Let's see how Caroline will behave after the rejection of Matt and the arrival of Katherine. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Bad Moon Rising"
