Talk about a fast recovery. Elena (Nina Dobrev) is back at Mystic Falls High School and feeling fine, according to the new synopsis for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 16, “Bring It On.”

The Salvatore brothers aren’t exactly comfortable with the new Elena, and Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) decide that school is the best place for an emotionless vampire.

Apparently this version of Elena misses pike jumps and pom poms because she gets her old spot back on the cheerleading squad. Caroline (Candice Accola) is thrilled — until Elena’s competitive side gets the best of her. Cheerleaders and fangs? Not a good combination.

Teaming up again, Damon and Rebekah (Claire Holt) continue the search for the cure. Their partnership turns sour when the elder Salvatore offers the Original his unsolicited opinion.

She couldn’t outrun him forever. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) catches up with Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and gets some interesting information out of the meeting.

A party that Elena throws turns messy when she gets into a physical altercation. Is she turning into a Mean Girl?

Check out the full synopsis below.
