When The CW released the synopsis for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 7, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on all the sneak peek images. First and foremost, “Death and the Maiden” is directed by the talented Leslie Libman and written by one of the world’s most gifted television scribes, Rebecca Sonnenshine. Thus, we knew we were in for a real treat right from the get go. Moreover, the spoilers teased one plot twist above all the rest: major doppelganger drama ahead! (Gulp.)
Maybe we’ve been blessed by Lady Luck. Perhaps The CW loves to spoil us rotten. Or maybe Qetsiyah felt terrible for frying Stefan’s brain and decided to make amends by working her magic. Regardless of the explanation, all we know is that the network recently released the promotional images for “Death and the Maiden” and the show’s 96th episode looks every bit as exciting and intense as it sounds.
Not only do we catch a glimpse of both Katherine (Nina Dobrev) and Elena (Nina Dobrev again) spending quality girl time with Tessa (Janina Gavankar), who’s rocking a blood-soaked shirt as though its the latest trend in supernatural casual wear, but we also see Elena and Stefan embroiled in what appears to be a heated argument. (Judging by his angry posture, Stefan might still be suffering from amnesia and seems fed up with his deplorable situation.) Meanwhile, Damon’s snooping around with a flashlight in his hand and Bonnie is still kicking it with Jeremy. (Is she a ghost still? Poor girl.).
Mark your calendars, fang fans. The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 7: “Death and the Maiden’ airs Thursday, November 14 at 8/7c on The CW. In the meantime, enjoy all the juicy pics in the gallery below!
