The Vampire Diaries Synopsis For Season 5, Episode 17: “Rescue Me”

Prepare to get your worlds rocked, Vampire Diaries fans. With the drama in Mystic Falls at an all-time high, it looks like everything is going to get turned upside-down in Season 5, Episode 17 (“Rescue Me”). Who’s in need of rescuing? Read on to find out!

It looks like Stefan (Paul Wesley) is in need of saving in this episode, and it’s up to Caroline (Candice Accola) and Enzo to fetch a new doppelganger (yeah, you heard that right) in order to appease the Travelers and save Stefan. We’re pretty sure they’re successful because later Steroline will share a “special moment of friendship.”

Meanwhile, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) attend Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) parent-teacher conference where they learn “bad news” about his behavior at school. Um, does he even go to school? To top it off, Damon is going to tell Elena some “upsetting news” about Jeremy’s personal life and her little bro will devastate his big sister by making a deal with Liv. Geez, we thought they saved the family drama for The Originals.

And the big climax of the episode will come at the end when Markos makes his grand debut.

Check out the full synopsis here:

In order to keep Stefan from being harmed by Sloan (guest star Caitlin McHugh) and the Travelers, Caroline and Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) agree to make a trip to Atlanta to find a newly discovered doppelganger. Caroline is surprised when Enzo opens up to her about his past. Damon and Elena spend an awkward afternoon at Jeremy’s parent-teacher conference, where they hear bad news about his behavior at school. Afterwards, Damon reluctantly tells Elena upsetting news about Jeremy's personal life. Bonnie (Kat Graham) has an unsettling encounter with Luke (guest star Chris Brochu), and learns more about his family history. Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell) fills Jeremy in on the rumors about the Travelers’ next move and demonstrates her considerable power. Jeremy makes an unexpected deal with Liv, then makes a decision that is devastating to Elena. Stefan and Caroline share a special moment of friendship. Finally, a terrifying turn of events at the Travelers’ camp leads to the appearance of their mysterious leader, Markos (guest star Raffi Barsoumian).
