Stefan and Elena may be under Markos’ control, but they won’t be for long. The doppelgangers are on the run in The Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 21 (“Promised Land”). And of course, Stefan is using this time to get “philosophical” will Elena about her relationship with Damon. Because it’s not like anyone should be worried about killing vampires or something.

With only two episodes left, Season 5 is heating up, and now Stefan and Elena can add Liv and Luke to their list of people who want to kill them. It looks like after their attempt to protect the dopplegangers goes badly, the Wonder Twins decide that the only way to protect the Other Side — and their magic — is to kill Stefan and Elena. Dead doppelgangers mean Markos can’t complete his spell and the Travelers can’t settle.

Meanwhile, Damon recruits Matt and Jeremy to help him set a trap for Markos, who turns out to have a devastating surprise of his own. And Bonnie finally tells Caroline the truth about the Other Side.
