In episode 5 of Season 2, we are confronted with the Mystic Falls Historical Societies “Volunteer Day” funded by the founding families. It is one more of many town holidays, which apparently occur every week. But what I really want to know is, are there any inhabitants of Mystic Falls who aren’t part of the founding families? There seems to be the same amount of extras in the carnival scene to the founding family parties. So if all the town’s members are part or related to the founding families, what’s the point of having the society? More importantly who are the families putting on a front for when they make announcements and give speeches. They voice things over the mic, that everyone in the “club” already knows.
Just something that continues to bug me.
