Errors and inconsistenciesEdit

  • "McCullough" is once misspelt "McCullogh".
  • Bonnie's paper is in for "the day after tomorrow". However, "tomorrow" is said to be a Friday, meaning that the paper was due in for Saturday, when school would not be expected to be held.
  • Kemp is said to be the librarian of Robert E. Lee High School rather than Grimesby.
  • Although the story begins with Damon's arrival in Fell's Church, it was heavily implied that he arrived on or before the first day of school, as a crow watched both Elena and Stefan the morning before school. This is not necessarily an error, as it could be explained that the crow was not actually Damon.
  • When Bonnie lists the people that she loved, the only members of her family that she mentioned were "her parents and her sister Mary". However, she has a total of four sisters.
