We’d be lying if we said we weren’t a little (or a lot) confused about some of the mythology this season on The Vampire Diaries. Silas has spent all this time just waiting to die, but will he finally get his wish and if he does, will he bring Bonnie back?
“Death and the Maiden” will hopefully answer some of those questions for us. Here’s what we do know: Elena and Damon are going to try to explain the whole Amara thing to Stefan (and maybe the audience as well?) now that he’s got his memories back. Last time we saw Silas, Amara was draining him of his blood so she could get the cure, but as far as we can tell, they’re both still alive.
Why is that? Why did Katherine survive after Silas drained her blood? We have so many questions. We know Silas is going to break his promise, which isn’t a surprise because who would trust that guy? But it turns out that Amara might have some good news for Bonnie and Jeremy or at least something that makes them think that this might not be the end of the line after all.
But which doppelgangers will be left standing when the hour is over? What does all this mean for Tessa (can we keep her? She’s crazy, but so fun)? Did we mention Damon is going to ask her for help? That should go well. And Stefan has a heartbreaking confession for Damon and Elena – is there any chance he wants to be next in line to drain a doppelganger and become mortal?
If all that isn’t enough to make your heads spin with curiosity, Nadia is back in this episode and she shows up at Caroline’s dorm searching for Katherine. Meanwhile, Dr. Wes has bad news for our favorite vampire turned human. We’re guessing slowing down her rapid aging isn’t going to be easy.
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday, Nov. 14 at 8/7c on The CW.
