Ever heard the phrase “searching for the high road”? Well our beloved Mystic Falls residents are going to face some struggles in that department when Season 5 returns. Not only is Enzo going to be the devil on Damon’s shoulder — peer pressuring him to give into his dark, natural urges — but some friendships will be tested! In fact, in The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 12, it seems as though several relationships will suffer due to one person’s action. And that very person might be Caroline. Apparently she’s going to come clean to Elena about something shocking and it somehow involves Stefan and Tyler.
Our theory? Caroline and Stefan, swept up in a moment of passion (she gets him. he gets her. they bond.), decide to explore the considerable chemistry that’s been building up between them for years and end up kissing/hooking up/sucking each other’s blood in a kinky ritual. However, that’s just speculation; we don’t know why Caroline is all of a sudden racked with guilt — not to mention, Stefan recently enjoyed a sleepover with Katherine Pierce so it’d be uncharacteristic for him to suddenly smooch another Mystic Falls beauty. Either way, whatever Care Bear is hiding, just know that there will be hell to pay.
Read the official synopsis for “The Devil Inside” (provided to us by The CW) for more juicy spoilers!
When Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) brings Damon (Ian Somerhalder) a gruesome present and insists that they bond by committing an act of revenge, Damon makes an effort to do the honorable thing. After finding himself in awkward and confusing conversations with Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda), Matt impulsively decides to throw a party, where Caroline (Candice Accola) makes a stunning confession to Elena (Nina Dobrev), then has to face the consequence of her actions with Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Tyler (Michael Trevino). Aaron (guest star Shaun Sipos) does his best to make amends for his family’s past misdeeds and start a new life for himself. Finally, Elena suddenly finds herself in a life-threatening situation with only minutes to figure out how to save herself. Kellie Cyrus directed the episode written by Brett Matthews & Sonny Postiglione (#512).
Oh boy. At least Enzo and his foxy accent are back, and Matt might have some fun for a change….
Anyway, what sort of “crime” is Caroline going to fess up to? Are you excited to see “Steroline” find their footing on the show? Or would you rather prick your own eyes out with a miniature pitchfork at the sight of anyone but Klaus putting their paws on our beloved Vampire Barbie? Comment away, gentle viewers!
