As if adjusting to freshman year isn’t difficult enough, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) find themselves tied up in a murder on campus.
We’re just a little over two weeks shy of the season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries. The CW has not only given us a glimpse at the season premiere (which we’ll have a teasing, spoilery preview of this week), but now they’re giving us a glimpse at episode 2, “True Lies,” which finds Damon trying to find his brother while Elena and Caroline get wrapped up in a murder mystery on Whitmore’s campus.
Meanwhile, Jeremy tries to convince Bonnie that it’s time to tell the truth about her whereabouts while also keeping Katherine hidden from Silas.
New cast members Rick Cosnett and Olga Fonda make their debuts as Professor Wes Maxfield, who is tied to the murder mystery and Nadia, who has followed Rebekah and Matt back from their summer abroad.

MISSING PERSONS — Without telling Elena (Nina Dobrev) that Stefan (Paul Wesley) is missing, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) turns to Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) for help finding his brother. Elena and Caroline (Candice Accola) try to find out who is covering up a campus murder, and a fellow Whitmore student named Jesse (guest star Kendrick Sampson) gives Elena some intriguing information about Professor Wes Maxfield (guest star Rick Cosnett). While Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) struggles to return to his old life, he continues to be the only person who can see and talk to Bonnie (Kat Graham), but he can’t convince her that it’s time to let the others know that she sacrificed her own life for his. After learning that Silas is searching for Katherine, Damon asks Matt (Zach Roerig) and Jeremy to keep her out of sight, but the situation quickly spirals out of control. Finally, Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda) uses violence to make a point about her own agenda.
“True Lies” airs Thursday, October 10 at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW.
