Was the threat of an Original death enough to make you tune in to The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 12, “A View to a Kill”? Kol’s (Nathaniel Buzolic) life was on the line — so how many watched to see if the adorable, yet vicious, vamp made it out alive? 

According to HitFix, TVD viewership took a dip last night: 2.57 million people caught the episode live, which was down from 2.71 million the week before.

Almost everyone is headed to Canada to track down the cure in Season 4, Episode 13, “Into the Wild,” and we’re pretty sure that’s something nearly every TVD fan will want to see.
