A KILLER VIRUS — When Stefan (Paul Wesley) tries to explain recent events to a very sick Elena (Nina Dobrev), her first instinct is to call Damon (Ian Somerhalder). At the same time, Damon is trying to figure out how to make a disturbing confession to Elena. While going through Dr. Wes’ files, Caroline (Candice Accola) discovers a frightening secret, and is surprised when Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) appears, claiming to have the solution everyone is searching for. At Enzo’s insistence, Caroline asks Stefan to meet her at a mysterious location where they are joined by a group of Travelers, including Sloan (guest star Caitlin McHugh), who reveals new information on the importance of doppelgangers. During spring break on a mostly deserted Whitmore campus, Elena runs into Luke (guest star Chris Brochu), a student who seems to know her, though she has no memory of meeting him. Recently dumped by his boyfriend, Luke proposes that he and Elena spend the break getting drunk together, but she sends him off on an urgent mission to find Bonnie (Kat Graham) and the “newbie” witch, Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell). Damon finally tells Elena the truth about his recent activities, and they come to a new agreement about their relationship. Pascal Verschooris directed the episode written by Caroline Dries (#516)

Mark your calendars for March 22, Vampire Diaries fans! That’s the day many of our favorite TVDers (and The Originals stars) will be on center stage at Paleyfest. The Paley Center for Media has confirmed that Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine), Ian Somerhalder (Damon), and Paul Wesley (Stefan) will all be on the TVD/The Originals panel. Who else is showing up? Read on to find out…
“Join me, @ninadobrev @paulwesley @iansomerhalder @julieplec at #Paleyfest in LA on 3/22. Tickets avail: http://www.paleyfest.org #TVD,” TVD showrunner Caroline Dries tweeted yesterday, only fueling our anticipation for the big event — which is generally released in online video streaming form after the fact. According to the official PaleyFest site, The Originals stars also scheduled to be in attendance include: Daniel Gillies (Elijah), Charles Michael Davis (Marcel), Leah Pipes (Cami), and Danielle Campbell (Davina). That’s going to be one crowded stage!
We’re particularly intrigued by Danielle Campbell’s inclusion in the group. Her characters is currently dead-and-gone on The Originals. Does this mean Davina will be back — and sooner rather than later? We hope so.
Paleyfest 2014 is shaping up to be a stellar event. In addition to the TVD/The Originals panel, other shows being recognized include: Pretty Little Liars, Orange Is the New Black, Masters of Sex, Sleepy Hollow, Community, and American Horror Story: Coven. Former television shows Veronica Mars and Lost will also have featured reunion panels.
“The Vampire Diaries” aired a huge episode on CW, and now fans are being given new juicy details about what will happen next on the CW series. On Friday, Jan. 24, Wetpaint Entertainment shared new comments made by Julie Plec about what will happen next on the series between Nina Dobrev and the two Salvatore brothers, who are played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley.
The last episode was a special episode for this vampire series. Episode 100 will be remembered as the episode that changed everything on the series. Katherine Pierce died, and she looked prepared to face death and end her life. However, the final moment of her life revealed that Katherine had not changed at all. She was not ready to give up. She used Nadia’s traveler spell to take over Elena’s body. This begins a new chapter for the series.
Julie Plec shared the following about what will happen next now that Katherine has shown her evil side again:
Oh, [Katherine]‘s going to be at her best of no good. The thing that’s so great is that she’s so into Stefan right now and so not into Damon right now, and yet Elena was about ready to re-embrace her relationship with Damon and Damon was all ready to win back his girl, so you can only imagine how that’s going to go down.
The love triangle had pretty much ended. Elena had chose Damon, and Stefan was out of the picture. Elena even fought destiny when she learned about the connection she had with Stefan. However, Katherine is truly Stefan’s doppelganger, and she wants her man. This will reboot the love triangle. At least, it will do that for now.
This week’s episode will be another big episode, and Julie Plec did tease about that as well. According to Wetpaint, the episode will deal with the fallout, and it will be both ‘painful and wonderful’ to watch for the fans. Katherine will try to take over Elena’s body completely, but everyone will try to stop her. It is likely that Bonnie being the anchor will reveal the fact that Katherine did something bad.
