Alaric gives Damon & Elena a dark history lesson in this brand-new clip!

Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) are taking a quiet, dimly-lit stroll on the Nov. 3 episode of The Vampire Diaries — though it’s really not as romantic as I’m making it sound. Not romantic at all, actually. Alaric (Matt Davis) takes the duo on a tour through the cave Mason (Taylor Kinney) showed Damon on last week’s episode, and in this brand-new preview clip, we get a glimpse of the deep, dark secret someone’s been trying to hide.

We know this episode will feature flashbacks to the original days of the Originals, revealing Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Rebekah’s (Claire Holt) “violent past” with Elijah (Daniel Gillies), but the specifics of said revelation are still unknown.

POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT: A popular theory making its way around the web is that Mikael (Sebastian Roché) is not only an Original himself, but actually Rebekah’s father. And while that has yet to be substantiated, I’d welcome the twist.

So watch the preview clip, then head down to the comments section with your best theories about Thursday’s episode: Is Mikael related to Klaus and Rebekah? How are the Lockwoods connected to the Originals? And when will Elena finally give up on Stefan?
