The CW has released the official synopsis for The Vampire Diaries: The Devil Inside (EP512), airing Thursday, January 30th. Highlight for spoilers:

SEARCHING FOR THE HIGH ROAD — When Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) brings Damon (Ian Somerhalder) a gruesome present and insists that they bond by committing an act of revenge, Damon makes an effort to do the honorable thing. After finding himself in awkward and confusing conversations with Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda), Matt impulsively decides to throw a party, where Caroline (Candice Accola) makes a stunning confession to Elena (Nina Dobrev), then has to face the consequence of her actions with Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Tyler (Michael Trevino). Aaron (guest star Shaun Sipos) does his best to make amends for his family’s past misdeeds and start a new life for himself. Finally, Elena suddenly finds herself in a life-threatening situation with only minutes to figure out how to save herself.

The episode was directed by Kellie Cyrus and written by Brett Matthews and Sonny Postiglione.

    Elena has had sex with Damon, she will never go back to sex with Stefan after that ;)

  • Cheryl12

    Thanks – you just saved me from having to write this :-} I agree in particular w/ the assessment of what it would take for Damon to flip the switch again, & I would add that he did _not_ flip the switch when he found out the truth about Kat.
    Aunt Sarah not fitting – ditto.
    Stefan cluelessly riding a high horse – ditto.
    I still say that Stefan will be knocked off that high horse (or perhaps come down from there voluntarily) when he has to account to someone for what happened in 1953.

  • Cheryl12

    I actually seriously think that is true [sans emoticon]. From this point she will: a) stay w/ Damon; b) break up w/ & then reconcile w/ Damon [x] times; or c) go her own way.

  • shoe20

    You do remember Katherine telling Caroline about Stefan’s bedroom skills, right? Kat’s sampled both too. LOL ;)

  • Debbie

    Agreed! I’m really glad you mentioned the Damon killing while having no humanity, because that for me is just another hole in the storyline. If Damon had no humanity, why would he feel anger or any need for revenge? He didn’t have to target just 1 family. We saw this when Elena’s humanity was off too, the way she targeted Caroline. I guess there’s no such thing as total lack of humanity.

  • InewtoTVD

    I agree with both you and mydamonheart… IMO..Aaron Whitmore’s parents, Aunt Sarah, and Elena’s parents, I still feel the evil Dr. Wes was the villain in those deaths. Making it appear both as accident and animals (vampire).I think he wanted control of the Science experiments and Gilbert was in the way, by taking him out, it left Daddy Whitmore with full control of the experiments and the money, and by taking both daddy and momma W. out of the picture, it left Dr. Wes in charge. Aunt Sarah I’m sure had control, and Aaron as the benefactor of the money and estate, that IMO Aaron could not touch until he was older, at which time Dr. Wes kills Aunt Sarah and becomes the sole guardian of Aaron, the money, the estate, and the experiments. All neatly packaged and controlled by his truly, the Whitmore family’s caring and loving dear friend, Dr. Wes Maxfield ;) And the Stefan thing? IMO. There was something fishy about that 1953 deal and Stefan played an Epic part in it. I’ve seen posted that there were actually 3 bodies removed from the Salvatore house that next morning, not just the one body of Uncle Joe that Damon had to kill… Was it Stefan that killed the other two ? Or maybe crazy grandpa Dr. Whitmore himself, you know, in the name of Science.

  • Justsayin’

    I’ll go with you on this. Makes a lot of since. I have fingers crossed that TVD will enlighten us all with more detail of 1953, the Augustine Society, and Enzo. There is so much to be done with the SL. I am really hoping they will pursue it. It would be a shame if they don’t.

  • mydamonheart

    Word!

  • mydamonheart

    Nope, The sound of that conversation was drowned out by me barfing- much like Damon ;)

  • InewtoTVD

    Well thank you my friend ;) My fingers are crossed too! lol I think there is so much excitement ahead if they play it all out. It could turn into the best season ever and truly the best show on tv. You know I’m “in like” with my TVD but I get put off with the back and forth of the couple thing that sometimes makes it hard to appreciate the SL because of the teen drama they haven’t been able to grow out of… Yet! (I’m hoping they will during the next episode or so). I know S1-S4 was setting up and playing out the triangle, but S5 was to be the New Vampire Diaries. I was hoping it meant they were growing up, due to S4 setting the pace, and getting past the teen drama and start getting into the drama of mystery, horror and suspense. The SL’s are great, very close to being Stephan King-ish, if they don’t get swept under the rug. O’well. We’ll just keep on guessing, hoping, and watching ;) Lol

  • Justsayin’

    Agreed.

  • InewtoTVD

    Well. I think Stefan is a little taller than Matt ;) Lol

  • Deliason

    That line actually was one of the more obvious bits of nonsense this show has ever written.

    Because the last time Kat had slept with Stefan, he was a 17-year old virgin from the sticks of Virginia, circa mid 1800′s. Just exactly how ‘great in bed’ could he possibly have been, compared to a lusty, 350-year old vampire?

    LOL! Sorry, writers, but you really made yourselves look ridiculous with that one.

  • Jennifer2667

    I never heard from anyone and only re-watched the recent episode, which didn’t mention specifics. But hey, that could be another explanation for Nadia’s confusing and awkward conversations w/ Matt, if she’s talking to her mommy, too. ;)

  • shoe20

    “he was a 17-year old virgin from the sticks of Virginia, circa mid 1800′s. Just exactly how ‘great in bed’ could he possibly have been”

    Actually my point….if he was that great at 17…look out today. LOL

  • Jennifer2667

    Not that anyone will agree but I feel the need to defend Stefan’s honor here. :) The guy lost his girl, drowned repeatedly, had amnesia, and developed PTSD all within a 3-4 month time period. I don’t think it’s uppermost on his mind whether he makes the exact right uncritical comment to Damon. And if he’s considered on a high horse because he believed Aaron’s story, I’d say that’s no different from Damon being certain Stefan would go on a Ripper binge after he got out of the safe. It’s not a stretch for Stefan to believe Damon killed someone because he’s seen it happen over the years. To hear Damon murdered the Whitmore line, after previously hearing that Damon was tortured, would make sense to Stefan. Why wouldn’t he believe it? It’s not farfetched. Just like Damon’s assumption, there’s history to back it up.

  • Jennifer2667

    This is a well thought out theory. I’m just wondering about the timing. I don’t think Dr. Wes would have been part of Augustine at the time Aaron’s parents died. He’s early or mid 30′s? And they died about 10 or so years prior. It’s likely he was still getting his PhD. Plus, he says they were the reason he got involved in Augustine. He could be lying of course.

    The timing would work for Aunt Sarah although I want to posit a slightly different scenario. I’ve wondered about Dr. Wes telling Enzo it’s time for an outing to go kill Damon. He already had the poison and antidote prepared. I don’t think that was Enzo’s first “outing.” He didn’t act like a vampire released for the first time in years; he went for the whiskey instead of a warm body.

    I’ve never thought about the Gilberts’ wreck as anything but an accident. ***** BOOK SPOILER******but the wreck does turn out to be a supernatural event in the story. Not a supernatural creature on the show but that’s easy to change. Just a few thoughts that popped up.

  • InewtoTVD

    Think back . The evil doc had said he new and worked with Gilbert and said he worked with Aarons dad, and he had trained him. Yes I agree. I don’t think that was the first time Enzo was sent out on a mission ;)

  • Deliason

    Yeah, sorry, nothing against Stefan’s character or, you know, his ‘skills’ or whatever. LOL. But it came across as a really silly, sloppy moment on the writers part, as if they forgot their character was, literally, nothing but an inexperienced boy the last time Kat slept with him. It should have sounded absolutely ridiculous and utterly unbelievable to anyone except, maybe, adolescent girls. I was embarassed for the show.

    But, that’s been happening a lot lately, so….

  • shoe20

    I get what your saying, and considering his age and inexperience…..I would agree. The fact remains, Stefan made a serious impression on Katherine, because she chased him and kept track for 160 yrs….just like Damon did her. LOL Something rung her chimes.

  • Jennifer2667

    Ah, you’re right; I watched the scenes again. I only remembered Wes trained with Gilbert. It crossed my mind that Wes was lying to bolster his case for Aaron to be the next Augustine protege, but Wes was so overly eager that It doesn’t seem likely.

    I was also reminded that Damon knew Aunt Sarah lived in Charleston, which means he was keeping track of her. Ultimately Damon killing the family, including Sarah, has more impact as character development than plot twist, imo. Damon got shoved back into his traumatic past, something he hasn’t dealt with, and I don’t buy that Elena’s changed so dramatically that she doesn’t care what Damon or her father did. Both made snap decisions at the end of last episode.

  • InewtoTVD

    Yes Damon knew about Aunt Sarah. I had actually thought it was due to him checking into Aaron because of his reaction about Aaron at the Monster Ball when Elena went and spoke with him and then when Damon was on the phone and heard Elena talking with Aaron about the party at the dorm. IMO the impact of regressing Damon’s character development would be the plot twist. Showing that all his progress was not reality. Meaning Damon’s humanity switch was never flipped back to the on position and only a trick, like with Lexi in NY. Seeing a character grow so much and then see them regress because it was all a lie. I hope that’s not the case.. IMO Elena’s reaction about her father and Damon is not a change from how she has always been. She excused and didn’t even care (for lack of a better term) about the murders of hundreds of innocent people by the hands/fangs of Stefan. She over looked all the innocent people Caroline has murdered. She justified Alaric as the victim for the people he murdered. etc.. IMO it’s just Elena being A-typical Elena. Nothing has changed with her natural human character traits. Her compassion and loyalty still lies with all the people she loves and cares about…. –Yes I felt it was a snap decision too. But on Damon’s part. I understand it and tip my hat to him for it. No I don’t like it. Because I was hoping DE was going to happen this season. Oh’ well, maybe S6? Lol.. Elena? according to how she has been S1 through current S5, she had her typical Elena love, hope, compassion and understanding going on.

  • Jennifer2667

    I guess time will tell with the character/plot development so I can’t offer much there. But Elena! She doesn’t give up on her loved ones and always believes they can be saved – all true – but she doesn’t condone certain behavior. Damon’s behavior when he hurt Elena or her loved ones was the crux of their relationship problems for three seasons. When it comes to Stefan, she does overlook the nameless/faceless murders because they are ‘out there’ and not connected to people she loves. When he was compelled to turn off his humanity and started acting violent though, Elena wanted nothing to do with him, actually training to defend herself against him and gutting him with stakes. Elena was appalled to see him feeding on someone when Damon encouraged the moderation program, and she didn’t give Stefan a break because he was compelled. She does give a pass to Alaric b/c he wasn’t Alaric while murdering, and to Caroline b/c she saved Bonnie. So possibly, yes, it may be that easy to dismiss her Dad’s torture b/c he was doing good (?) and hurting nameless vampires. I don’t believe Sarah will be so easy b/c Elena cares about Aaron, and more than that, she thought she and Damon had an honest relationship. She looked pretty cut up in the cell when Damon explained his plan to Aaron. Then suddenly after finding out her Dad was a torturer, Damon’s behavior became ok for her. I sense a conflict between what she truly believes and what she wants to believe.

  • InewtoTVD

    I’ll go with most of that :)

  • Gwen

    Sorry for the extremely late response…going through old posts and came across this one that I just had to respond to and let you know that I loved the comment about Enzo “a lot of fear / heartache masked in toughness / sarcasm”….great line and so very true…both Damon & Enzo just want to be loved – which will be their salvation.

  • Gwen

    Agree…I am thinking about the time Enzo’s contract is up…Maggie strolls into town…they rekindle their relationship and ride off into the sunset…after they team up w/ MF gang and officially shut-down Augustine test labs once and for all.
