Halloween falls on a Monday this year, which means the holiday episodes of most TV shows are airing the week before, including those on The CW, but that doesn’t mean genre fans don’t have more to look forward to, as evidenced by the just released synopses of “The Vampire Diaries” Episode 3.08, “Ordinary People”, and “The Secret Circle” Episode 1.08, “Beneath”, both airing on November 3rd. “Supernatural” Episode 7.07, “The Mentalists”, which bows November 4th, isn’t sounding too shabby either.
Episode 3.08 “Ordinary People” (11/3/11 Air Date; 8:00-9:00 PM):
THE ORIGINAL FAMILY — With help from Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Bonnie (Kat Graham), Alaric (Matt Davis) tries to decipher the meaning behind his recent discovery.
Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) engage in a mean-girl power struggle, until Rebekah finally reveals some of her family’s ancient secrets and the violent past she shares with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies).
Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tries a reckless new approach to make a breakthrough with Stefan (Paul Wesley), and they’re both surprised by an unlikely ally.
J. Miller Tobin directed the episode with teleplay by Caroline Dries and Julie Plec and story by Nick Wauters.
Episode 1.08 “Beneath” (11/3/11 Air Date; 9:00-10:00 PM):
A ROAD TRIP FOR THE CIRCLE TAKES A HORRIBLE TURN — After not hearing from her grandmother (Ashley Crow) for a couple of days, Cassie (Britt Robertson) becomes concerned and wants to go look for her. Diana (Shelley Hennig) decides the entire Circle should go in case Jane is in trouble. She also invites Jake (guest star Chris Zylka) along, much to Adam’s (Thomas Dekker) dismay.
A storm turns the day trip into an overnight excursion so Faye suggests a little game of Truth or Dare to liven up the evening. However, things take a horrible turn when Faye is forced to reckon with someone from her past.
John Fawcett directed the episode written by Don Whitehead and Holly Henderson.
Episode 7.07 “The Mentalists” (11/4/11 Air Date; 9:00-10:00 PM):
MEDIUM RARE — Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigate the gruesome murders of resident mediums in Lily Dale, the most “psychic” town in America.
They discover that an angry spirit is killing off the psychics one by one, but in a town full of people who claim to be summoning spirits, they have a little trouble identifying the medium controlling the ghost.
Mike Rohl directed the episode written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker.
