Now that he’s out of the box, Stefan has a lot of catching up to do — especially since Qetsiyah zapped his brain and swiped his memories. Poor Stefan. He just can’t catch a break this season!

In this sneak peek from The Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 4 (“For Whom the Bell Tolls”), Stefan is taking a crash-course in history, courtesy of Damon. But there’s just one little thing Damon forgot to tell Stefan about during his history lesson: Elena.

“And here I thought catching up on nearly two centuries would be a drag,” Elena tells the Salvatore brothers when she catches them day-drinking at a bar. “Remind me of your name, again?” Stefan asks (quite slyly, we might add). We saw that look you gave Elena. Stef. 

Clearly, there are some things Damon doesn’t want Stefan to know about — like the fact Stefan was hopelessly in love with his girlfriend. History sure is fun when you can control it, right Damon?

Seeing how Stefan and Elena might be sharing a kiss in this episode, we’re starting to believe Qetsiyah was right about the doppelgangers. Maybe it is impossible to break their bond.


Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 25 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW, followed by the series premiere of Reign.
