And here it is: the synopsis for the fifth season premiere of The Vampire Diaries, I Know What You Did Last Summer (EP501). The episode airs Thursday, October 3 at 8/7c. Highlight for spoilers:
COLLEGE DAYS - After spending the summer enjoying her passionate relationship with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and making sure that Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) is adjusting after his return from the dead, Elena (Nina Dobrev) is thrilled to move into the dorm at nearby Whitmore College with her new roommate, Caroline (Candice Accola). Still believing that Bonnie (Kat Graham) has been traveling all summer and will soon join them, Elena and Caroline are surprised when a student named Megan (guest star Hayley Kiyoko) shows up and announces that she will be sharing their dorm room. Katherine (Nina Dobrev) makes an unexpected appearance at the Salvatore house and pleads with Damon to help her now that she is human and vulnerable to her enemies. Matt (Zach Roerig) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) return to Mystic Falls after spending a wild summer in Europe, where they met a mysterious beauty named Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda). Elena can’t shake the feeling that something is wrong with Stefan (Paul Wesley), and Silas (Paul Wesley) makes a terrifying appearance at the “End of Summer” party in the town square.
The episode was directed by Lance Anderson and written by Caroline Dries.

Starving for a #TVD fix as we wait for the show’s return on Thursday, April 18th? Let’s catch up on some news, shall we? Have an ogle at Entertainment Weekly‘s exclusive stills of Pictures of You (EP419). Yes, we’ve seen some of these before, but there are some new pics in here, including a good look at Rebekah’s (first!) prom dress. Head over to EW to see more photos.
And Just Jared Jr. spoke with Joseph Morgan about Klaus, Caroline, cures, and The Originals:
JJJ: We’re hearing a lot about the change in dynamic between Klaus and his brother Elijah in the spin-off. When will we see that shift start to happen?
JM: It’s ever-shifting, I think, since I daggered him at the end of season 2. Absolutely, it’s always evolving. And the thing that I love about Elijah, is I think he always feels that there is some possibility for redemption for Klaus. And I’d like to think that he’s right. But yeah, we’ll see that dynamic shift even during episode 19, and certainly during episode 20. Their potential roles in each others’ futures will be defined in those couple of episodes.
There’s been a lot of talk about The Originals spinoff, which gets its setup in the April 25th episode of The Vampire Diaries. Check out these new photos exclusively from Entertainment Weekly. Keep an eye out for Claire Holt, Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin, along with some new faces, too. Quotes from Julie Plec put the photos in context and explain the situation in New Orleans. Fingers crossed that the episode is well received and The Originals goes to series, we’re pretty sure we could handle twice the vampires, witches, werewolves and hybrids every week.
Brace yourselves for an onslaught of pretty! Zap2it has exclusive stills from the upcoming prom episode, Pictures of You (EP419), scheduled to air on April 18th, 2013.
