If watching Vampire Diaries is a bonding experience for you and your family, well, you have a pretty awesome family. But that’s bad news if you hoped to huddle around the TV for some bloodsharing this Thanksgiving, November 22. 

Instead of a new episode, The CW will repeat the Season 4 premiere. Hey, at least it’s not the second episode of the season. That way, you can digest your turkey without watching Elena (Nina Dobrev) vomit blood all over herself.

Happy Thanksgiving, TVD fans!

Vampire Diaries airs Thursday, November 1, at 8 p.m. on The CW.
