TV Guide had the opportunity to preview The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 18, “American Gothic,” and they have some juicy spoilers.

 

First things first, we can finally stop speculating, because Katherine (Nina Dobrev) coughs up her reason for wanting the cure. We’re guessing “Give it to Elena” is number 437 on her list of possibilities.

 

And while Ms. Pierce starts out with the cure, it doesn’t sound like she has it at the end of the episode. Per TV Guide, it ends up in a surprising place. We don’t know about you, but we’re almost as excited to see what the cure looks like as we are to get a peek at Silas’s real face. We’re picturing green liquid in a test tube. (For the cure, not Silas’s face.)

 

Speaking of surprises, whatever Stefan (Paul Wesley) tells Damon (Ian Somerhalder) about his plans for the future is apparently heartwrenching. If you’re going to wear mascara tonight, make sure it’s waterproof!

 

Nina Dobrev also weighed in on tonight’s episode, tweeting that it’s “scandalous”:

 

“Tonight's TVD is a good one- scandalous! I haven't seen it but I remember shooting it ;) and KELLY CYRUS' directorial debut!”

 

Any guesses about what Nina’s referring to? We’d call shirtless Klaus (Joseph Morgan) scantily clad but not scandalous...
