So much for their happy ending! It sounds like Damon and Elena are about to be torn apart just as quickly as they came together.
Elena (Nina Dobrev) may have chosen Damon (Ian Somerhalder) on the fourth season finale of The Vampire Diaries, but according to The CW’s description of the Oct. 17 episode, her connection to Stefan (Paul Wesley) is far from broken. In fact, both doppelgangers — yes, Katherine, too — appear to have Stefan on the brain.
According to the description, “Elena and Katherine have the same dream that Stefan is in danger and desperately needs their help,” which prompts them to go to Damon for assistance.
This leads to a nasty confrontation with newcomer Tessa (True Blood‘s Janina Gavankar), who “seems to know everything about Stefan’s history.” To make matters worse, Tessa also gives Damon “a disturbing message … about his own future.”
Bad News For Damon & Elena
But wait, it’s not over.
Silas reveals the real reason he’s on the hunt for Katherine, and he even enlists Matt’s (Zach Roerig) help to track her down — whether Matt likes it or not.
And here’s the real kicker: The description states that “Damon and Elena face a disturbing new reality.”
A disturbing new reality? What the heck does that mean?!
