It’s been a long, chilly hiatus waiting for The Vampire Diaries’ newest episode. Even though it’s only been two weeks, it feels like an eternity — mostly because we can’t wait to see what Elena (Nina Dobrev) does with her new lack of emotions.
She’s already burned down her own house, and in Season 4, Episode 16, “Bring It On,” which airs tonight on The CW at 8 p.m., she has a whole new agenda. Both Salvatore brothers think that the vamp with the flipped switch should get back to normal and head to Mystic Falls High School, aka, the most normal place on the planet.
Of course, with no compassion to temper her hunger for blood, Elena decides to start feeding on some humans. The only problem? Everyone in Mystic Falls is steeped in vervain, thanks to the mayor’s plan to dump the plant into the water supply. Instead of nibbling on locals, the baby bloodsucker opts for some out-of-towners — the cheerleaders who have come to visit for a competition.
