It’s time for the Thanksgiving episode of The Vampire Diaries, which means Caroline is on a mission to get everyone together in order to celebrate. Elena helps her in her endeavor in preparing to host “Friendsgiving” at the dorm. How adorable.
Meanwhile, Alaric, Damon and Stefan travel to Portland to dig up some background information on the Gemini Coven. Just to go back a little, we’re made to believe that Jo (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe) is the sibling that survived Kai’s (Chris Wood ) murderous rampage on his family. So not only is she a witch, but she’s one of the Gemini witches, who also happened to put her magic away for safekeeping. I think she’s going to have to start practicing again. And soon.
In other news, Liv and Tyler are, well, I’m not quite sure what they are yet, but we do know they like each other. Tyler tries to help Liv and her brother after revealing some pretty startling information about their coven and the plans they have in store for the siblings.
Let’s not forget about Caroline’s glorious speech to Stefan last week. It’s all out in the open now and here’s hoping they don’t just sweep it all under the run and they make out already. Poor Caroline.
Can we talk about Liam for a second? He’s poking around a little too much about how Elena “saved” that girl in the cornfield the other week, and he knows something’s up. I think Elena is going to have to either tell him or turn him. Hopefully we’ll find out in this week’s episode.
Last but not least, there’s Bonnie’s bear that she sent back to present day Mystic Falls that just happens to contain her magic. What will happen? Will the boys find the Ascendant in Portland? Can they save Bonnie and bring her back?
The synopsis for “Fade Into You:”
