The Kat is finally out of the bag! Now that Katherine’s secret has been revealed, it’s up to Stefan, Caroline, and Matt to save Elena before it’s too late.  

When The Vampire Diaries returns next week for Season 5, Episode 15 (“Gone Girl”), the Mystic Falls gang hatches a desperate plan to save Elena, while Nadia will be in flashback mode, remembering her centuries-long search for her mother. We know Nadia isn’t going to let her mother go without a fight, and with the Travelers on her side, it looks like Stefan & Co. are going to have a battle on their hands.

And remember that strange, new witch on campus? Judging from this promo, it looks like Bonnie and Jeremy are going to turn to the inexperienced witch for the second time, most likely to perform yet another location spell. But what could she be locating? Meanwhile, Damon is going to get into a “nasty confrontation” with Tyler — does he try to drain him? — and then escape to go seek out Dr. Wes for some revenge. Yikes! Seeing as Wes has the Travelers on his side, this is going to get very interesting.

Speaking of interesting, Bonnie is going to discover a “terrifying secret” that puts the lives the lives of all of her friends in danger. What could it be? Does it have to do with the Traveler mythology and their interest in doppelgangers? We’ll have to wait to find out!
