The CW's "The Vampire Diaries" continues with an episode where Elena meets Damon for the first time and gets her first kiss with Stefan. In "Night of the Comet", Mystic Falls prepares for a festival to celebrate the passing of a comet, while Vicki is in the hospital recovering from Damon's attack.
Stefan goes to the hospital and tries to use his abilities to make Vicki forget who attacked her, but his attempt is cut short when Matt arrives. Jeremy continues to struggle with his drug use and his feelings for Vicki. At a parent/teacher conference, Mr. Tanner (guest star Benjamin Ayres) warns a worried Aunt Jenna that Jeremy is in trouble and needs intervention.
Elena goes to the Salvatore house to talk to Stefan, but finds Damon instead. Damon tells her about Stefan's past relationship with a girl named Katherine, and when Stefan arrives home, Elena is surprised that he seems upset to see her there.
Meanwhile, Vicki's memory of the attack begins to come back to her and Damon used his power of persuasion to make her forget what happened. Elena realizes she has to tell Stefan how she feels about him and the two share their first kiss as the comet lights up the sky over Mystic Falls.
