What’s going down on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 21? Well, the installment may be titled “Promised Land,” but there’s no semblance of hope or happiness floating around Mystic Falls. In fact, everyone is pretty much in danger now that Markos is on the prowl — especially Stefan and Elena!
According to official synopsis for TVD 5×21, our always-hassled doppelgangers, who have been put through the ringer these last couple of episodes, manage to flee from Markos’ (Raffi Barsoumian) control but that doesn’t mean they’re home free. Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) find themselves stranded in yet another remote area and essentially they are trapped. So how do they spend their time? Well, Stefan gets in touch with his inner-Socrates (or Dear Abby — whichever comparison tickles your fancy) and decides to wax philosophical; he has plenty of advice to dish out about romance and relationships. However, he’s not talking about himself and Elena — he’s referring to his brother Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) relationship with her. (Yes, depending on how you interpret this intriguing spoiler, Stefan is pretty much the ultimate Delena fangirl.)
Meanwhile, get ready for some wicked moments involving the Bobbsey twins of Mystic Falls! After they try to protect the dopplegangers and fail, Liv (Penelope Mitchell) and her equally blond brother Luke (Chris Brochu) conjure up a treacherous new plan. And in case that wasn’t enough to fret over, Damon recruits the one true good human left, Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig), as well as Matt’s BFF Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), to assist him in luring Markos into a trap. But — SURPRISE! — their strategy results in a completey devastating outcome.
As for Bonnie (Kat Graham), she’s worried about the Other Side collapsing and swallowing her Grams, witch friends and her anchor self whole. Worried about her fate as well as all her loved ones, Bonnie fills Caroline (Candice Accola) in on the mega secret she’s been harboring. Finally, while Bonnie searches desperately for a way to stop Markos, Caroline is witness to an unthinkable act of violence by one of the Travelers. Will someone die at the hands of the handsome-yet-ruthless Traveler leader?.Let’s hope not — but then again this is TVD we’re talking about.
