Uh-oh, spaghetti-os! It’s Mystic Mystic Falls time again, and once again, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) are having tough times in Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 7: “My Brother’s Keeper.”
Reigning queen Caroline (Candice Accola) tries to help her two pals out during the rough patch, though she probably has some duties to attend to as well. (Getting the crown polished? Teaching everyone to waltz?)
It sounds like Stefan is still keeping the cure a secret, because while he wants to go off and do special plotting with Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) keeps bugging his brother to help him find out why Professor Shane (David Alpay) is so shady. With Stefan preoccupied, Damon tackles the prof himself.
Guess who else has a “secret project”? Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). For Caroline’s sake, let’s hope it’s not “Let’s see if werewolves and hybrids can make babies.”
Tradition must go on, so Caroline and Elena help April (Grace Phipps) pick out a dress for the Mystic Falls Pageant. (Fingers crossed we get to see inside Mystic Falls’ epic costume shop.)
Bromance! Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) needs Matt (Zach Roerig) to comfort him after some scary, very realistic nightmares. Aww... except we’re totally worried for the little Gilbert!
Finally, we get to see Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas in this episode!

THE MISS MYSTIC FALLS PAGEANT — Caroline (Candice Accola) does her best to be there for Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) in a tough time. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tries to convince Stefan to help him uncover Prof. Shane’s (guest star David Alpay) motives, but Stefan is intent on carrying out a different plan with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). At the annual Miss Mystic Falls Pageant, Elena and Caroline give April (guest star Grace Phipps) advice on which dress to wear, while Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Hayley (guest star Phoebe Tonkin) work together on a secret project, and Damon confronts Prof. Shane with his suspicions. Alarmed by the vivid nightmares he’s having, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) turns to Matt (Zach Roerig) for help, but the situation escalates sooner than anyone expected. Olympic Gold Medalist Gabrielle Douglas also makes an appearance. Jeffrey Hunt directed the episode written by Caroline Dries & Elisabeth R. Finch (#407).
