But actually, this time it ties in quite nicely to Moonlight’s post “I Want to Be a Vampire!” The show is Private…

The Vampire Diaries Season 1, Episode 13

This episode starts with a great example of what a bitch Katherine was back in the day; and quickly segues into blatant morning cuddles between Stefan and Elena.
