Aside from learning that the Original Witch will return later this season to The Vampire Diaries, and aside from watching Paul Wesley squirm over talk of Matt Davis kissing his wife on set, attendees at Saturday night's TVD PaleyFest panel were treated to a screening of this week's new episode, "1912."
