The Vampire Diaries is new this Thursday at 8PM on CW 11 in Queens with ‘The Last Day.’ Last week’s episode saw the return of Elijah, the introduction of Joseph Morgan as Klaus, Jenna finally learning the truth, and the reveal of a big twist in the reasoning for Klaus’ ritual. How will all of this affect the upcoming episodes?
“Damon is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to prevent Elena from being a victim of Klaus’ plan to break the curse. Damon’s actions put him at terrible odds with Stefan and the tension that started brewing between the brothers over their differing opinions of how to help save Elena’s life blows up into full-scale conflict. Tyler returns to Mystic Falls after receiving a disturbing phone call. With the full moon marking the arrival of the sacrifice ritual, Stefan and Elena spend a romantic day together — afraid it might be their last.”
Check out a slideshow of the cast of The Vampire Diaries.
The extended preview (watch it here) begins with Alaric showing up at the Salvatores’ (now technically Elena’s) house with a message from Klaus. Jenna has certainly adjusted to what she has learned, and she has a crossbow trained on him. However, the message is what’s the most worrisome: “the sacrifice happens tonight.” Meanwhile, both Stefan and Damon want to keep Elena safe, but they have conflicting ways of how they want to do that. Caroline and Jules are both shown chained, most likely for that sacrifice ritual. Could one or both of them be one of the deaths coming up? Tyler’s back, but which side will he end up on? Damon comes face-to-face with Klaus, who tells him,
“The ritual will happen tonight. Be a good little vampire and don’t screw it up.”
However, Alaric knows Damon’s not just going to let it happen. With this episode, Alaric’s back in the fight, but with death looming for multiple characters, it seems no one’s safe (except for the core three: Elena, Stefan, and Damon). Will they reveal to Tyler and Jules what the real curse is? In case you missed it, in last week’s episode, Elijah told Elena that the sun and moon curse is fake, and the real curse involves a secret Klaus has kept: he has werewolf in him from his father’s side, meaning he’s a hybrid. What do you think this will mean for the rest of the season?
Tune in to CW 11 in Queens at 8PM on Thursday for ‘The Last Day’ on The Vampire Diaries. Who do you think will be dying on the show before the end of this season?
