The CW has released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries: All My Children (EP315). The episode airs Thursday, February 16th. Highlight for spoilers or head over to the Episode Index:

A FLIP OF THE COIN — After starting her day with a startling discovery of Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) latest indiscretion, Elena (Nina Dobrev) is frustrated to find that none of her friends agree with her on how they should react to the Original family’s internal power struggle. Once again caught up in the destiny of the Bennett witches, Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Abby (guest star Persia White) find themselves playing a part in a ritual to appease the spirits of nature. When Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies) gives Damon and Stefan (Paul Wesley) a dangerous ultimatum that puts Elena in danger, they turn to Alaric (Matt Davis) and Meredith (guest star Torrey Devitto) for help with a plan that leads them to a terrible choice. Candice Accola also stars.

The episode was directed by Pascal Verschooris and written by Evan Bleiweiss & Michael Narducci.

    I hope you are right,the Powers that Be also seem to love killing off characters on this show too.  I am also trying not to get attach to Danny G. , man that’s hard because Elijah is bringing it.

    I like your sense of humor. “It shivers me timbers.” Hilarious!

    Daniel will start filming his own show in April – “Saving Hope”.  He never intended to be a regular on The Vampire Diaries. .. just a recurring guest star, which hopefully will continue.   Elijah still continues to rock my world… even though I do not believe he will be an ally to Damon and Stefan.   I want all the Originals around for season 4. 

  • Uwoy

    I bet it’s Katherine Damon hooks up with!!! Nina said “I can’t say whether I am in that scene or not” hahaha she said the same about the scene in 3.03 (when she was talking about the 1920s and katherine being there):P

    Yeah, I kinda hope it fails so he can come back on TVD. Yes, I am terrible. But I will watch the show to support him, I will just be hoping that I am the only one watching.

    : )  I’ve decided, in homage to my favorite old-fashioned Original, that I’d trot out as many old-fashioned, albeit goofy, expressions whenever possible. If only I could be so eloquent as dear Lord Elijah.

  • noirgirl

    It better as heck be more than 3 episodes!  How about 3 seasons!  : P

    Hilarious stuff Georgia. “A guy(vampire) can only take so much rejection and mixed signals.” Yes, you’re right. We have a tendency to move on if a relationship isn’t progressing the way we want it to. And some guys move on rather quickly. But this situation is much more complicated. First, Damon began making a move on Elena even though he knew she was in a relationship with his brother(how despicable is that). Of course she rejected him. Any girl that has morals would. Second, the kiss that she gave him in As I Lay Dying was meant to be a kinda goodbye kiss. It wasn’t suppose to have any romantic implications. I can see how Damon could have taken it the wrong way. But Damon should have known better and realized what that kiss meant. It’s his fault if he took it the wrong way. Third, they obviously became closer while Stefan was away but Elena never wavered in her quest to find him. So it’s clear where her heart was. Damon knew that. Anything that developed between them during this time was purely a deeper friendship and a shared need to bring a loved one back home. By his little speech “I want you to remember the things you felt…” was clearly Damon making more of their “relationship” than Elena was. Yes, she said that she cared about him but that is totally understandable given all the time they spent together. Obviously the more you get to know someone, the more you begin to care about them. But those feelings aren’t always romantic in nature. And lastly, with Stefan out of the picture, Damon would obviously feel he has more of a chance with Elena. The problem is that he didn’t give her the proper time to deal with her breakup and to sort out those unresolved feelings she still had. To expect her to go from one relationship and immediately to the next(Stefan’s brother no less) was entirely selfish on his part. He should have given her more time. I’m not surprised that Elena is giving out mixed signals to Damon. Even though they kissed, it’s clear that she’s still in that process of deciding what she truly wants. And the fact that Damon is Stefan’s brother isn’t making things easier for her.

    I’m guessing that is what Damon meant when he said “it is right, but not right now”. 

    Elena is not the property of either Salvatore brother and who she decides to be with is solely her decision to make.  After what has happened,  Elena will have definitely have things to think about.   To argue over which brother is right for her is pointless

    Personally, I wish Damon would just move on with Rebekah, or Katherine, or another beautiful vampire and stop, as VampLover1973 put it, babysitting Elena for Stefan.  If Elena chooses to go back to Stefan,  I would like for Stefan to be solely responsible for Elena’s safety.  I want Elena to stop sending Damon mixed signals and stop telling him to be the better man. I want Elena to stop asking Damon “where he was” when things go badly for her.  Her expectations of Damon are not fair, while she is involved with his brother.  She cannot have them both… right?   I mean really, is that too much to ask?

  • dman

    Yes, I’m sure you would want Damon to move on with someone else, but that’s not something he wants to do at the moment. The guy is clearly in love with her which means that it will take some time before he decides that Elena isn’t worth the suffering he goes through just to be with her. Sooner or later he’ll come to that realization.

    But dman, I love Damon.  There will never be a reward for him at the end of the rainbow if he doesn’t move on and leave Elena in his dust.   Damon deserves to have happiness, unicorns, fat puppies, human chew toys, jelly beans, trumpets, fireworks and rockets red glare.  :)

  • dman

    I’ll tell you this, you will get your wish. Damon WILL be with Elena. Yes, in an actual relationship. There’s no doubt it will happen. I get it. The constant teasing is driving you and other Damon fans nuts. But unlike Smallville with its never-ending need to keep Clark and Lana apart(which I absolutely hated), TVD actually pays attention to its fans and gives them what they want. Obviously they’re milking this “Delena” thing for all its got, but I think eventually they’ll come around and make it happen.

  • Y_turner

    I think it’s because they’re trying to get Abby’s powers back. Of they appease nature, then they may be granted something back in return.

  • Y_turner

    I think what it might be is, Elijah now wants Elena dead because she is the source of creating more hybrids. And I think Elijah finally realised he’s not gonna be I undaggered forever and that if Klaus can’t make anymore hybrids and everyone he knows is either daggered or hates him, he’ll be forever alone. So he tells the Salvatore brothers either she has to turn or she’s gonna die.
    This is what I think anyway.

  • Y_turner

    Yeah, exactly! Like in True Blood. I don’t want the Delena relationship to be as short-lived as the Sookie&Eric one though :/

  • Barney

    good point there

  • you dont need to know,,,

    Totally thats what i think too :D:D:D

  • Misshush

    ok so the synopsis says elena starts her day with a startling discovery of damons latest ‘indiscretion’ now indiscretion means ‘behavior or speech that is indiscreet or displays a lack good judgement ‘sexuall induscretions” it also means that it is out of foolishness or unwiseness now ether elena said something to damon the night before which is the ball and that made him angry or damon being damon just did it out of boredom indiscretion also means that a man is cheating on his wife/women but damon and elena are not together so its mostly sure that damon is in bed with someone but maybe not rebecca it can be a next girl that damon compelled at the ball to sleep with her so i guess we have to see i cant wait to see elenas face
    delena all the way

    omgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg   delana needto go ut on this show their the perfect couple

    Why is everyone so sure it’ll be Rebekah that Damon sleeps with?  Yes, Elena was jealous when he flirted with her at the bon fire but she staked him so I doubt she’s interested in sleeping with him unless there is some scheme behind it.  Plus Damon didn’t want Elena to undagger Rebekah because he was worried she would try to kill Elena.  I doubt either other them would trust each other enough for a tryst.  I would guess he sleeps with Katherine.  She tried to get him to sleep with her a few times already.  I could see him being heartbroken over whatever happens with Elena at the ball and Katherine slithering up to him.  He might give in to her this time because he is longing for Elena and still has old feelings for Katherine.  It would upset Elena more because she could actually lose him to her because of his intense past feelings.  Elena appeared jealous when he spoke with Katherine on the phone after their plan to kill Klaus crashed and burned when Damon told her to take care of herself.  Either way I’m not happy about the fact that they’re dividing Damon and Elena up before they ever have a chance to be together.  I thought it was pretty heartbreaking when Katherine told him she never loved him in season 2 so I feel bad that it’s like a repeat of that.  Can’t he catch a break?  I understand the need to make Elena jealous in order to force her to admit her feelings but I have a bad feeling that this is just going to drive a wedge between them instead of bring them together.  Then she’ll be back with Stefan and the same old boring thing.  I think Stefan is actually better with Rebekah.  I hope they don’t drag this out until next season.  The suspense is killing me.

    So just read on examiner.com that they expect a new love interest for Damon by the end of the season based on him waking up in bed naked with someone else.  Hopefully they’re just jumping to conclusions.  If not, that really bumms me out.  :(

    The press has been in Atlanta and on the set of The Vampire Diaries over the past couple of days doing interviews with the cast. On Sunday there was a big TVD photo shoot. Pretty sure examiner.com got that tidbit of information wrong. 

    Press in Atlanta over the past two days included:
    Jim Halterman – The Futon Critic
    Sandra Gonzalez – Entertainment Weekly
    Terron Moore -Editor -Ology
    Robin Ross – TV Guide
    Tierney Bricker – E! Online
    Damian Holbrook – TV Guide Mag Senior Writer
    (and a few more)

    Nuzhat Naoreen – Entertainment Weekly-New York – was not in
    Atlanta, but was doing phone interviews with Julie, Kevin and the rest of the cast. 

    Judy Yam (CW Public Relations) was in Atlanta also.

    Looks like there will be a race on who will type their interviews and
    get them posted first.  There will be a lot coming out between now and
    the finale… big game changers, twists and turns. Exciting times ahead!

    I always feel so bad for Damon when he impulsively commits a so-called “indiscretion”.  It’s usually because he’s been hurt – badly – but it always comes back to bite him in the ass. Makes we want to hug him and comfort him.
