Just in case you miss decade dances and Whitmore Society’s Halloween bash wasn’t enough drama for y’all, don’t worry: the lovely ladies of Mystic Falls are headed to another extravaganza just in time for Valentine’s Day in The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 13. And guess what this event is called? The Bitter Ball. That’s right — all those lone souls wandering aimlessly around campus will finally be able to meet up with other miserable students in hopes of making new friends, indulging in steamy flings — and if they play their cards right — dropping it low to any track off Beyoncé latest album.
Plus, any TVD ep titled after a Bonnie Tyler power ballad is a-okay in our book, and “Total Eclipse of The Heart” is certainly an appropriate pick. Seriously, just check out the lyrics: “And I need you now tonight / And I need you more than ever / And if you only hold me tight / We’ll be holding on forever/ And we’ll only be making it right /’Cause we’ll never be wrong /Together we can take it to the end of the line /Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time.” If that doesn’t scream ‘eternal love’ to you, we don’t know what does!
Hit the play button and enjoy:
Hoping to help everyone move past recent traumatic events, Caroline (Candice Accola) convinces Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) to attend Whitmore College’s “Bitter Ball” for broken-hearted students. Bonnie is intrigued with a fellow student named Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell), who appears to be dabbling in witchcraft. Tyler (Michael Trevino) starts to worry about Matt’s (Zach Roerig) relationship with Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda). After making a disturbing discovery, Stefan (Paul Wesley) has a frustrating conversation with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey). Dr. Wes (guest star Rick Cosnett) struggles to continue his research project with help from a new benefactor named Sloan (guest star Caitlin McHugh). Still bent on revenge, Damon and Enzo resort to violence to convince Bonnie and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) to help them, but their plan takes an unexpected and horrifying turn. Darren Genet directed the episode written by Rebecca Sonnenshine & Holly Brix (#513).
First of all, Tyler’s back? Second, Matt and Nadia are spending time together? Let’s just pray that she doesn’t try to eat the poor lad. Also, do you think Damon and Elena are still broken up at this point or do they still have the hots for each other and are going to reconnect at the dance? Post your prediction in the comment!
