Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Sneak Peek Photos For Season 5, Episode 17

Just when we think things can’t get any more dramatic for the kids of Mystic Falls, the Vampire Diaries producers go and turn everything on its head. It looks like this time it’s going to be Stefan and Jeremy who are in need of saving when TVD returns for Season 5, Episode 17 on March 27.

According to the official synopsis from the CW, Sloan and the Travelers are out to get Stefan. It’s up to Caroline and Enzo to save him from being harmed, and the only way to do so is to track down a newly uncovered doppelganger in Atlanta. (Another one? Seriously? Our heads are starting to spin.)

Meanwhile, Damon and Elena learn some bad news about Jeremy’s recent behavior in school. (Sounds like he might be falling back into his Season 1 ways.) The trouble gets even worse for Elena’s little bro when he makes an unexpected deal with the witchy Liv.

Perhaps most exciting of all, however, will be the introduction of Traveler leader Markos. According to Deadline, the newcomer will be a “charismatic but imposing leader from a faraway land,” and has already been described as the season’s new Big Bad.
