Week 2 of the official 2013-2014 broadcast season this week brings us into October, and the first two premieres over on The CW: the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries, along with the series premiere of spin-off The Originals. Vampire fans, enjoy the two-fer this week — next week The Originals will shuffle over to Tuesdays.
Meanwhile we’re excited to see what’s coming up on new hit Sleepy Hollow, plus the second episode of the season for Revolution and Once Upon A Time. And can Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. keep the magic of the pilot episode — and its 15 million viewers — when it airs its second installment?
Here’s the full run-down of this week’s genre television:
“For the Triumph of Evil …” Abbie is reunited with her institutionalized sister after another agent of evil, the Sandman, begins to plague the dreams of the residents of Sleepy Hollow.
