Mini-synopsis:
MORE SECRETS OF THE SALVATORE FAMILY HISTORY ARE REVEALED

"Children of the Damned” was the second major flashback episode we’ve seen so far on The Vampire Diaries. It went significantly further in filling out the canvas of Damon and Stefan’s past than the first one did. The Civil War era scenes focused on the hunt for vampires and the discovery of Katherine and her friend Pearl as vampires, while the present day scenes focused on the three-way race between Stefan, Damon, and Anna( who were learn more about as well) to reach the Gilbert journal and figure out where Emily’s grimoire was put.

Present day: Jeremy tells Elena, Stefan, and Damon that he gave the journal to Alaric and that his new friend Anna was also interested in it. Stefan goes to the school, where Alaric has made a copy of the journal just before Anna sneaks past him and steals the original. Stefan confronts Alaric, who reveals to him the shocking details of his tragic history–he is hunting Damon because he doesn’t know what Damon did with Isabel's body. Stefan gets the copy from him and he and Elena discover that Gilbert had given the journal to Stefan’s father to hide, a secret he swore to “take to the grave.” Stefan deduces it was buried with his father so they go dig up the coffin, where, sure enough, they find Emily’s spellbook.
Damon goes to the grill, where he recognizes Anna from his days as a human. He follows her to her room and plays docile long enough to get a look at the original Gilbert journal, which he also takes to mean his father’s grave, and then tells her he works alone. He finds Elena and Stefan with the grimoire, clearly having left him out, and he recognizes their betrayal. He forces Elena to drink some of his blood and threatens to kill her unless Stefan gives him the journal. They trade, and Damon swears they are no longer brothers.

In other TVD happenings Bonnie is on her date with Ben, Anna's newly turned vampire. Anna has ordered him to keep Bonnie occupied. While on the seemingly perfect date Bonnie's witch powers kick and when the two share a kiss. Unforturnately, she was none to subtle in walking away. At the end of the date/episode he attacks her.

In the flashback sequence we discover it was Gilbert who invented the vampire finder, and that Stefan had been the one who inadvertently revealed Katherine to his father, one of the fanatical vampire slayers of the township. Anna was Pearl’s daughter, and getting her mother back is obviously her impetus for wanting to open the tomb. We see Katherine in action as a vampire, and get a sense of Damon’s struggles with his father for approval and then what he considered Stefan’s betrayal. We see Katherine showing him how she operates, and Damon being a bit wary but in the end charmed by her wild, savage energy. Also we learn that Katherine’s hair is much better than Elena’s–Dobrev looks better with curls than stick-straight hair.

The episode ends with Anna kidnapping Damon-blood-infested Elena from her room, leaving only an open window to announce their departure….

As we come inevitable closer to the end of the 1st season of The Vampire Diaries, loose ends are being tied up and secrets and identities are being revealed and clarified. Stay tuned for more…
