Let’s do a little recap of last week’s episode shall we? Alaric was stumped why Jo (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) couldn’t be compelled, so he sends in Elena to do some digging. Turns out she’s a witch!
The biggest news of all is that Damon is back, only Elena doesn’t want to see him. When she finally does, things go awry as per usual, and now Alaric can’t undo his compulsion and bring back her memories now that he’s human again. Of course he is. But have no fear, Damon is determined to jog her memory just by seeing her. He believes the power of their love will bring them back. God, I hope so. Meanwhile, Matt has joined Tripp in his plan to rid Mystic Falls of vampires but only as a way to find out insider information to help his friends, mainly Enzo. When he sends Caroline and Stefan to where he thought they were keeping Enzo, they find out it’s been a trap from the beginning. Dun-dun-duuuun!!
This week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries finds Elena having to deal with the consequences of her actions and facing her problems head on. You know, as opposed to just making someone remove her memories and problems altogether.
There’s also the annual Whitmore Medical Center Fundraiser, which is basically a dance, and we all know what happens when there’s a dance in or near Mystic Falls. Plus, Liam and Damon will square off and hopefully get into a fight which involved them taking off there shirts. Okay, now where was I…
The network has released the official synopsis along with some stills from the episode titled “Do You Remember the First Time?,” airing Thursday, Nov. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
