According to the official synopsis from the CW, Markos and his Traveler brethren continue their shenanigans while the gang desperately tries to figure out what they’re up to. Liv enlists Matt, Jeremy, and Tyler to track the Travelers in hopes that they can stop them from taking over Mystic Falls. Things are also heating up in supernatural purgatory, as Grams pays a “disturbing” visit to Bonnie to inform her of the trouble a-brewing on the Other Side.
All that will be exciting enough, but what we’re really looking forward to is the relationship drama! While Enzo admits to Damon that he’s searching for his long lost love, Bonnie gets angry at Jeremy for working with Liv behind her back. Meanwhile, the show promises to delve further into doppelganger prophecy — aka the idea that they're are always drawn together. In this case, both Stefan and Elena start having dreams of what their life together could have been. It’s sure to be awkward as all hell... and also super intriguing! ;
