We’re getting closer and closer to the The Vampire Diaries Season 4 finale, but these pesky hiatuses are cramping our style.

So will we get a new episode of The Vampire Diaries tonight?

We’re happy to report that tonight’s episode is indeed brand new! Last week, Bonnie (Kat Graham) literally came face to face with the dreaded Silas, but the episode cut off right before we got a good look at his terrifying mug.

In Season 4, Episode 20, “The Originals,” we’re getting a two for one deal, so to speak. The episode will serve as a backdoor pilot for the spin-off of the same name starring Joseph Morgan (Klaus).

The hybrid Original learns of some nefarious plots against him in New Orleans and immediately goes to investigate. The town is now run by his former protégé, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who strikes fear in the hearts of supernaturals and humans alike. Joining Klaus for the ride is Elijah (Daniel Gillies).

The brothers also run into Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), who’s hooked up with a powerful witch named Sophie (Daniella Pineda) while on the search for her birth parents.

Back in Mystic Falls, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) keep trying to get Elena (Nina Dobrev) to acknowledge her humanity again. Meanwhile, Katherine (Nina Dobrev) reveals her vulnerable side and seeks out Rebekah (Claire Holt) to relay an important message.

Are you excited for peek at The Originals tonight, or are you anticipating the action back in Mystic Falls a bit more?
