The Vampire Diaries has not had a new episode in 50,000 years. At least, that’s what it’s felt like. So all you VD fans (heh) will be happy to know that the show returns will all new episodes on January 21st. Like, FINALLY! You can also check out a promo for the new episodes that we previously posted.
The CW has released a few (very few) promo photos for the new episode, along with a synopsis. It’s the synopsis that’s the most interesting and I’ll tell you why: because I think it debunks most of the rumors that were floating around the internet when the show was on hiatus. Which I will address in the next paragraph and which may be a bit spoilery – so just skip to the synopsis below if you don’t want to read it.
Did some of you stumble upon a fake IMDB summary of this new episode that said Elena would become a vampire and that the guy who she hit with her car would likely turn her? Yeah, not happening. It’s interesting to note that the synopsis doesn’t mention Elena AT ALL. But, she’s in the first photo below. Yes, with Damon. But in the sun. So unless the Salvatore brothers have another magic ring lying around somewhere, she’s not a vampire. I still don’t want to venture a guess as to who the mysterious person is that she hit, but she and Damon are definitely going on a road trip and I’m pretty sure she’s not a vampire. Oh, I think it will happen at some point. Just not now.
Damon (Ian Somerhalder) takes a trip to Georgia, where he surprises an old flame, Bree (guest star Gina Torres, “Eli Stone”) and enlists her help to figure out how to open the tomb. In the process, Damon comes face to face with someone who is determined to make him pay for past wrongs.
Stefan (Paul Wesley) opens up to Grams (guest star Jasmine Guy) in his effort to help Bonnie (Katarina Graham) overcome her fears and accept her powers. While researching his history paper in the public library, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) meets a cute-but-geeky girl named Anna (guest star Malese Jow, “Hannah Montana”) who has her own theories on the folklore of Mystic Falls.
When Damon returns from Georgia, Stefan is waiting with news that will change their world. Nina Dobrev and Sara Canning also star.
