We’re not even to Episode 3 of The Vampire Diaries fifth season and we’re freaking out over what’s to come in Episode 4 — which won’t even air until October 24. We’ve read the synopsis for that ep and we’ve been scratching our heads over one line in particular: “Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) makes a startling confession that hits Damon (Ian Somerhalder) hard.” What can Jeremy say that will affect him so deeply?

According to TVLine, Jeremy’s revelation “pertains to a recent Mystic Falls tragedy.” But for a town like Mystic Falls, where everything is particularly tragic, that doesn’t really narrow it down at all.

Given that the episode (“For Whom the Bell Tolls”) is set during the town’s Remembrance Day festival, meant to honor the dead, we can speculate that Jeremy’s finally going to let the cat out of the bag about Bonnie (Kat Graham) being dead. While that’s not exactly a recent Mystic Falls tragedy — she died way back in Season 4, which was before the steamy summer — that’s our leading suspicion given the fact that Jeremy will be the one delivering the news.

We can just imagine how freaked out Damon is going to be, considering that he’s been being a good boyfriend and keeping things from Elena (Nina Dobrev), keeping her on a need-to-know basis. We don’t think he’ll be able to keep this from her and we’re expecting some tears when the gang learns about Bonnie — remember that super sad scene between Bonnie and Matt (Zach Roerig) in Episode 2 on the Other Side? Imagine that times a million.

What do you think Jeremy’s big news is going to be? Hit the comments and let us know your guesses!
