Full moons in Mystic Falls are a pretty big deal, and this one is no exception. Remember the breaking bones and white-hot pain Tyler had to face in “By the Light of the Moon”? Well, it’s transformation time again.


Since Klaus has got a whole lot of evil up his sleeve, Elena is preparing herself for the dastardly plans he’s got in the works. And while someone attempts something incredibly brave (vague much?), it’s all for naught, as things spiral into chaos anyway.


Damon has some bad news for Stefan. We hope the “terrible new development” is that the cleaners ruined all of the Salvatore brothers’ shirts, but somehow we doubt it.

Here’s the full description:

THE SACRIFICE RITUAL BEGINS — With the arrival of the full moon, Elena (Nina Dobrev) tries to prepare for whatever Klaus (guest star Joseph Morgan) has planned and Tyler (Michael Trevino) faces his second transformation.   The terrifying events quickly spin out of control, despite an unexpected act of courage.  Finally, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) admits the truth to Stefan (Paul Wesley) about a terrible new development they must face.  Steven R. McQueen, Sara Canning, Kat Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig and Matt Davis also star.  Paul M. Sommers directed the episode written by Caroline Dries & Mike Daniels (#221)
