The Paul Wesley-directed episode, “Resident Evil,” hasn’t aired yet….but that doesn’t mean viewers have to remain in the dark about what’s going to happen to their favorite characters — especially now with a new villain on the loose. Thanks to The CW, we got our hands on a copy of the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 19, and after catching upon all the spoilers, we are more excited than ever to watch installment. It sounds downright intense!

Titled “Man on Fire” (which can be interpreted literally considering how the Travelers basically set themselves ablaze to help bring Markos forth), TVD episode 5×19 will not only feature drama revolving around the show’s main love triangle, but it will also focus on Bonnie’s shocking new dilemma as the Anchor. Moreover, viewers will be made privy to what happened to Enzo’s one true love, Maggie, and, feature flashback scenes of Damon living it up in the 1960s. Oh, and did we mention that little orphan Tyler is danger? Yikes.

Read all about TVD’s “Man on Fire” below!

Stefan (Paul Wesley) tries to distract Elena (Nina Dobrev) from obsessing about the state of her relationship with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), while Bonnie (Kat Graham) does her best to be realistic about how the changes happening on the Other Side will affect her existence as the Anchor.  Damon demands the Traveler knife, forcing Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Matt (Zach Roerig) to admit it has gone missing.  Through flashbacks to election night, 1960, Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) reveals to Elena, Stefan and Bonnie that he has learned what happened to his long-lost love, Maggie (guest star Heather Hemmens), and then, with the unwilling help of Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell) and Luke (guest star Chris Brochu), things take an ugly turn.  Trying to calm Enzo down, Damon intervenes, but his words cause Enzo to make a desperate and dangerous decision that leads to a violent confrontation with Stefan.  Finally, Markos (guest star Raffi Barsoumian) enlists Sloan’s (guest star Caitlin McHugh) help in a ritual designed to break an ancient curse against the Travelers. Tyler (Michael Trevino) is forced to play a dangerous part in the ritual, while witnessing the incredible power the Travelers now possess.  Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Melinda Hsu Taylor & Matthew D’Ambrosio (#519).

Yikes! What do you think is happening with the Other Side? Has the ‘gate’ been tampered with? Are spirits coming and going whenever they please? Post your predictions in the comments!

Mark your calendars, fang fans! The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 19 airs Thursday, April 24th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
