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.

  3. bill Said:

    yall should have all of them play on the lab top season 5 episoad 21 i on but i want to wach them all on my computer

  4. Americantvtalk Said:

    Wow that’s an awesome recap! I defiantly think there’s going to be a lot more with the other side especially with it impacting the originals too.

  5. Sage Said:

    @ruthviernes I agree with you that Stefan deserves a better woman than Elena. Tell that to the production team, who are hell-bent on making Stefan into a sisi boy still in love with Elena.

  6. Monica Said:

    Why the f** it need a dob to post a comment.

    Stefan, my love for you is growing big episode to episode and I just can’t see you alone and sad anymore. Please give him a gorgeous new character. She has to be top of the world.

  7. jibowo omotola Said:

    It’s true every superman needs a super lady not a delusional chic like elena. Pls get stefan a super chic who’ll make and keep him happy.Stefan is the man. Paul is doing a great job.#teamstefan

  8. Rachel Said:

    Caroline Forbes is a super chic who makes Stefan happy and would keep him happy given the chance. We don’t need a new character, she is gorgeous and a better woman than Elena will ever be, plus introducing a new character this late in the game wouldn’t make any sense and would just complicate things since we probably wouldn’t get a proper back story that would allow us to sympathise with them. Steroline all the way! I’m a sucker for the gradual relationship that started off as just friendship.

  9. Yannis Said:

    I agree with Rachel about Caroline and Stefan, but I like Elena too. I do think Elena belongs with Damon, they are perfect for each other. Anyway, no matter how it turns out, just keep it going, it’s looking great!

  10. Blaire Said:

    Seriously… Stefan needs katherine! Steferine is the most perfect thing in the series… I love klaroline too and we need klaus back and stefan needs to be just friends with caroline.I want atherine to marry stefan ankd

  11. Adil Said:
