Can we go back to the time when the old Stefan cared whether Elena lives or dies?
That was before. It's your job now.
While there's still plenty to discuss from this week's new episode of The Vampire Diaries - an Original reunion?!? Another dead parent in Mystic Falls?!? A killer on the loose?!? - The CW has already released a clip from next Thursday's "Dangerous Liaisons."
It features Elena reacting to a request for a meeting, which prompts Stefan and Elena to sort of battle over which of them is now in charge of her protection. Hence the quote above. Who wins out? Who will go meet a certain Original returnee on the episode, which precedes a ball thrown by Klaus at his newly renovated mansion?
