Shocking news for Klaus. A new love interest for Alaric. A game of hide-and-I-dare-you-to-seek by Stefan.

The Vampire Diaries returns with a new episode on January 5, "The New Deal," and The CW has released its official synopsis for what's to come. Stop reading now if you wish to be surprised...

Stefan has hidden the coffins containing the bodies of Klaus’ family, and Klaus quickly turns to violence to convince Damon and Elena that no one will be safe until he finds Stefan and gets his family back. Tyler continues to make the most of his new abilities as a hybrid, but he has to face the disturbing consequences of his actions as well.

After a terrifying incident, Elena and Alaric grow increasingly concerned about Jeremy’s attitude and, ultimately, his safety. Alaric meets the beautiful Dr. Fell, who is intrigued with his amazing ability to heal. While trying to strike a deal with Klaus, Elena delivers news that truly shocks him.

@sheila:i agree with some of the things you have said,but i don't think stefan has a problem with being himself around elena coz lets not forget he was like that even before they met,and i agree stelena has no build up no one has ever denied that,but they get to know and understand each other eventually.They say honesty is the best policy but believe it or not sometimes telling the truth does more harm than good,but you can't just expect him to tell her everything he's done for the last 145yrs,i'm preety sure damon never does,though there are some major things that he can't forget and he did tell her some.I think what Alisa is trying to say exactly is that stefan deserves elena coz of so many reasons and given all the misery damon has inflicted on elena and her family and friends,that will always be the downfall of delena,yeah she said she forgives him but she can never forget.Keep that aside,i know damon has done alot of good things to elena lately,he has protected her with his life.But lets not forget about stefan who has lost everything coz of them,he's done everything possible to keep them alive and safe,he's made alot of sacrifises for them,it won't be fair to him for them to be together.I don't think those that said elena will not love damon as strong as she love stefan are wrong,not even damon i don't think she will ever love anyone like stefan,yeah she was young when she fell for him and barely even know what love is,but love is love,you can't change it no matter how old or matured you'll be.Lastly i don't blame stefan for not saying goodbye to her,coz lets not forget klaus was still in mystic falls and he stole his family,moreover he screwed their plan of taking down klaus,he needs to stay away from Mystic falls ASAP,and what do you expect him to tell her,that he came to say good bye,he's leaving town blah,blah,blah,while he screwed them over?i don't think it will make any sense.


That does make alot of sense. And I agree with u. I jus like Stefan individually and elena so I jus think elena should turn into a vamp. Then they can be together then Stefan cant be himself


I have to agree with Sheila, I'm not a shipper but I'm definitely down for "delena" and so happy "stelena" aren't together. I'm a big Stefan fan and he is a boss now. Why be with a chic you can't be real with? Gotta go Kimmels on


Stefan seems a lot happier since he's been on his own and doing what he wants to do. He is for the first time since the series began, not brooding and fighting himself. I believe its because he couldn't be himself around Elena. I adore the real Stefan, this sometimes bad Stefan. I never really rooted for Stelena even though I didn't dislike them together. They seemingly met and to easily "fell", nevermind that one was barely 17 and just tragically lost her parents, didn't know what love was (at least romantic) and the other was barely ever truthful about himself. Not much foundation and in Hollywood that for a good reason, soesnt last. Meanwhile, Damon was nothing but real with Elena. He was almost to honest with her, hemade a lot of terrible decisions but so did Stefan. I think Stelena had a cute chemistry but nothing overly romantic or even playful. That's why a lot of people say they're boring or don't have chemistry. I personally want Elena to finally let go and be herself and since Stefans been gone she has matured and become so much more interesting. She and Damon share an amazingly deep connection with overwhelming romantic chemistry. They have a solid foundation that may not be believable (are witches/vamps/wolves realiatic?) But will be explored. Stefan could have said goodbye to Elena befote he left, they have phones and the ability to write letters. My point is they don't need each other, she is already willing to drop him. Those that say she will never love Damon are wrong. She falls hard for him and falls in love with him. I love how Damon improves Elena and how she gives him support. Unlike her previous relationship, this one is full of overflowing emotion. The way she looks back at him, the way he touches her. They are made for tv and I've always said, Stelena was made for the book, Delena for the tv series.


Wow, I was jus expressing my opinion on the subject, and I have my reasons y they should be together. And it has nothing to do with the fact that one is good and one is bad. I jus think they r the better couple, but that's my opinion. And everyone is entitled to their own opinion and u dnt have to rude about it.


Stelena FAN: They started out together, so they should end up together. Right. Stelena FAN: Damon is bad and Stefan is good so Stefan deserves Elena more. Right. I mean why even go on with the show?!! I think you missed your calling, writing for first love on Barney, because the belong together! Why you ask? Cuz I wuv them. RIGHT.


But ericka, Stefan doesn't want to be ripper and he wants his humanity and elena brought that out in him. And they started with them being together it should end with them being together. And come on damon killed elenas lil brother. So she doesn't bring out the best in him is she is gonna cause him to kill her lil bro. And the nice Stefan not dick Stefan would never do that


I want stefan and elena back together!!! When does she become a vamp?


you know all this talk with who should be with who, i say nooooo! I think Stefan should come back but he cant be with Elena anymore due to trust issues. I think Damon should step up his game, but Elena should remain single. She should hold on to her own, stand on her own feet and rock the show as the only female lead who doesn't need or want a guy. As for the blonde chick (whoops there is two) Rebecca, well i think she should cause as much havoc chaos and destruction as she can when she finally gets the blade pulled out, and as for Rick, let him get his groove on. He didn't really with the aunt, and since he no longer has any doubts, questions or fears about his ex wife why not let the poor bastard be happy this season? anywho, that's my two cents.


@Alisa who keeps commenting. Glad you love stelena and your obviously loyal but you scare me. I am rooting for Delena and hope that Stefan and Elena will find someone who they can be their beat with, Elena has already found that person, Damon.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
