The Vampire Diaries Promo Breakdown: Season 5, Episode 18 — “Resident Evil”
What do you get when you cross a recently-split Delena, Stelena sex dreams, and snarky narrator Enzo? The next episode of The Vampire Diaries! The CW has just released the extended promo for Season 5, Episode 18 (“Resident Evil”), and it’s full of awkward moments brought about by Stefan and Elena’s shared visions of their “perfect” life together (complete with 2.5 children). Here’s the full breakdown!
Stelena has children. The 30-second promo begins with Elena waking up from what is probably her first dream of what we like to call Stelena’s Dream Home — complete with a few tykes. At :01, we get a glimpse of their life together in what appears to be the Gilbert homestead, which Elena apparently didn’t burn to a crisp in this alternate reality. Assets!
Caroline is worried. “You OK?” Caroline asks at :04. The two are hanging in their dorm room, and Care is rocking a purple peplum top. Is she planning on wearing that to class? Apparently, she never got the sweatpants college memo. Meanwhile, Elena is just waking up. Yep, this is about how we imagined Elena and Caroline’s respective college approaches. “I just had a really crazy dream,” Elena informs her bestie.
Damon and Caroline are teaming up. In an unexpected development, Caroline and Damon seem to be working together to figure out what is up with these visions — or at least they’re talking on the phone, which is totally progress for these two. “Something weird’s going on,” Caroline informs Damon. “Stefan and Elena are suddenly having vision-type situations of each other.” Cut to shot of Stelena making eye contact in the Salvatore mansion living room, Fireplace of Metaphoric Desire burning in the background.
Dream Stelena is sickeningly sweet. We catch a longer glimpse at the kind of flirting that goes on in Stelena’s Dream Home, and it’s saccharinely sweet. “I’ll bite you,” Elena sweetly threatens Stefan as their kids play in the background. “I’ll bite you right back,” Stefan replies. Oh, these two!
And sexy. But it’s not all sweet flirting. There’s also some very hot kitchen sex happening. At :15, we see Stefan and Elena making out against the kitchen counter. As Elena wakes up from her vision, we see she’s actually sitting next to Damon. She drops the glass she’s holding in surprise/desire/etc. “That good, eh?” Enzo snarks from the background. Can he narrate every Delena scene, please?
Awkward Delena. At the end of the promo, we see Damon try to broach the subject with Elena: “So, having sex dreams about my brother, huh?” Elena can’t look him in the eye: “Wow, yeah, OK. That’s one way to change the topic.” But Damon isn’t put off: “I just thought I’d skip the uncomfortable parts.” Ha!
