Season 2 Synopsis:  Katherine’s manipulations threw a wrench into the love triangle between Stefan (Wesley), Elena (Dobrev) and Damon (Somerhalder), and the other residents of Mystic Falls were forced to choose sides as they fell victim to a new breed of danger.  Stefan and Damon were later met with their greatest challenge yet – the arrivals of Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan), two of the “Original” vampires.  As Klaus went head-to-head with Damon and took a special interest in Stefan, he was also seemingly focused on breaking the “Sun and Moon” curse by sacrificing Elena.  No matter what action the brothers took to protect Elena, Klaus would not be swayed from his mission, proving himself to be the most powerful vampire in existence.  Ultimately, Klaus’ sacrifice ritual proved deadly not for Elena but for her Aunt Jenna (Canning), whose violent death devastated both her family and her boyfriend, Alaric Saltzman (Davis).
