The inhabitants of Mystic Falls are living with a bunch of immortal creatures and magical beings running around causing troubles. Brothers Stefan (played by Paul Wesley) and Damon (played by Ian Somerhalder) are vampires and so is the evil Katherine (played by Nina Dobrev), who is back looking to cause more trouble. Katherine is trouble not only because of her nature, but because she looks exactly like Stefan’s human girlfriend Elena (played by Nina Dobrev). Then there is a werewolf family, the Lockwoods – Tyler (played by Michael Trevino) and his uncle Mason (played by Taylor Kinney), and even Elena’s best friend, Bonnie (played by Kat Graham), is a witch. This is definitely a crazy town with a lot going on.
