The Vampire Diaries returns from hiatus with a new episode this week. In the previous episode, the Salvatore brothers believed they had come up with a way to kill the Originals using stakes carved from another white oak tree that they had discovered. Unfortunately, Klaus had a few tricks up his sleeve. First, he had Bonnie do a spell to unbind him and his siblings. Then, he tortured Damon for information about the stakes. The group managed to successfully kill Finn, but that was after Bonnie’s spell took effect. They did, however, learn a very important piece of new information: when you kill an Original, other vampires of their line also die.
In this week’s Vampire Diaries, Damon and Elena head off to Denver to pick up Jeremy. Now that Klaus (via Kol) knows where he’s hiding, he’s no longer safe. The duo are also hoping Jeremy can communicate with some ghosts to figure out which Original started the Rose/Katherine/Damon/Stefan bloodline. Naturally, they’re hoping it’s not Klaus so that they can figure out a way to get rid of him without losing their own people.
Stefan has instructed Elena to figure out her feelings for Damon, because while he wants Elena back, he doesn’t want her if she’s in love with his brother. He also spends time with Alaric trying to figure out where his alter ego hid the one remaining white oak stake.
