Last week, Stefan finally escaped from his underwater prison and is now on the loose and hungry in Mystic Falls! What can we expect from the aftermath in tonight’s showing of The Vampire Diaries? Read on to find out everything you need to know about Season 5, Episode 3: “Original Sin.”

Elena and Katherine are dreaming about Stefan

According to the official synopsis for the ep, it isn’t just Elena who has some sort of psychic connection to Stefan. Katherine has been having dreams about Stefan, too. It seems this hasn’t stopped now that Stefan is out of the safe. We wonder why this sort of thing never happened before… Stefan must be in some serious pain.

Delena in bed together

In this sneak peek for the episode, we see Elena waking up from one of the aforementioned dreams about Stefan. It seems these aren’t just imaginary, either. It seems Elena can actually see what Stefan is seeing. Damon is trying to be understanding, but can only take so much.  “I know I said it didn’t bother me that you have some psychic connection to your ex-boyfriend, but… I don’t need a play-by-play, Elena.” Fair enough.

Stefan is still hungry

Apparently, the dude Sheriff Forbes, Damon, and Elena found drained in Stefan’s safe wasn’t enough to satiate Stefan’s hunger. In the promo for the episode, we see a stumbling, starving Stefan wander into a bar and start drinking from the bartender. Geez. How many people will Stefan have to drink before he feels better?

Tessa saved Stefan from the vault

In this episode, we will meet Tessa, a woman from Stefan’s past. It turns out she was the one who found Stefan and asked the man Stefan drained to fish it out for her. In this sneak peek, she tells Stefan how she saved him, gives him a blood bag, and comments on the curiosity of a vampire doppelganger with a conscience. Who filled her in on everything?

Flashbacks!

Funny you should ask, because we’re going to get some flashbacks that will reveal just how Tessa and Stefan know one another. According to the synopsis, “In flashbacks to a distant time and place, Tessa reveals the shocking secrets in her past and what she has planned for the future. She also has a disturbing message for Damon about his own future.” Yikes! We don’t like the sound of that.

Silas reveals all

OK, maybe not all, but the immortal is going to ‘fess up about why he’s determined to find Katherine. This comes, according to the official synopsis, after Silas “forces an unwilling accomplice to help him search for Katherine, leading to a confusing and life-threatening situation for Matt.” Careful, TVD, we don’t like when our quarterback busboy is in danger.

Trouble in Delena paradise

Well, you know, trouble other than the usual carnage and mayhem. According to the synopsis, “Damon and Elena face a disturbing new reality.” Does this refer to post-quarry Stefan, who will no doubt be much changed after three months of perpetually drowning an hallucinating the two people he loves the most. Or does it refer to something else?
