Tread Perilously’s “Creatures of the Night” month brings Erik and Justin to Mystic Falls for an episode of The Vampire Diaries called “Bring It On.”
Still reeling from the death of her brother, Damon convinces Elena to switch off her emotions. But instead of calming her, Elena now gives in to whims and impulses, like trapping commuters so she can feed. Stefan suggests it might be time for her to go back to Mystic Falls High, but that also proves troublesome (as Caroline soon learns). But is all of it just a wind-up so the emotionless Elena can escape from the Salvatore mansion? Meanwhile, Klaus and Damon launch separate searches for Katherine.
Erik and Justin get lost in the Nina Dobrev of it all. Justin immediately deduces that the series is “horny Twilight.” A long James Bond digression occurs. Stefan ends up becoming “goofus” but it’s tough to call Damon “gallant.” Justin tries to cast Ian Somerhalder in a show with Jensen Ackles. Erik declares Scanners to be the best X-Men movie ever made. Klaus fails to impress Justin. The pair attempt to cast a Highlander remake and, despite not appearing in the episode, Justin learns who plays Katherine.
