Elena in The Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 16: “While You Were Sleeping”
The drama involving Katherine has been pretty crazy to say the least, but if these new photos are any indication, Elena will be back in her own body in just a few weeks time!
According to the captions on these sneak peek pics from Season 5, Episode 16, Elena has returned and must somehow deal with everything that’s changed since Katherine took over her body. (Oh, like, her boyfriend becoming a vampire cannibal, for instance.) While the CW has yet to release an official synopsis for “While You Were Sleeping,” the photos do give us a small glimpse at what we can expect.
First of all, get ready for the debut of Luke, a gay Whitmore college student who bonds with Elena and Caroline. (Now that Jesse and Aaron are dead, they will be needing some new friends after all.) Unfortunately, it won’t be all late night study sessions and keg parties for the trio, as E! Online reveals that Luke has “a secret agenda.”
Meanwhile, it looks like Sloan will be up to her typical Traveller shenanigans. One photo shows the witch casting a spell over Stefan as blood drips from his temples.
