In what context will Elijah - who will also be seen on the April 26 backdoor pilot for The Originals - show up? What else can fans expect from this Vampire Diaries Season 4 installment?

Read the official synopsis now:

Elena and Rebekah take off in search of Katherine and find themselves in a small town in Pennsylvania, where Elena has a surprising encounter with another old acquaintance — Elijah. 

Stefan and Damon are both concerned about Elena’s state of mind and are determined to do what’s best for her, but she makes it clear that helping her will be difficult. Damon is not sure how to react when Stefan reveals his unexpected plan for the future. 

Meanwhile, in Mystic Falls, Klaus receives Caroline’s reluctant help and comes to a new understanding of Silas’ powers.

I read somewhere that "An old romance flares up in this episode". If this is Katherine and Elijah I'm leaving this series and NOT coming back.

Stefan and Caroline can die with the rest of TVD in Mystic Falls!!! Never set foot in New Orleans.

Yay My favorite is back!!! EVERYONE HAS TO TUNE IN FOR THE PILOT SO WE CAN GET MORE KLAUS AND ELIJAH!!!!

Hopefully Stefan's plan for the future involves moving to New Orleans and leaving Damon to deal with his fucked up plan to turn off Elena's emotions on his own. THIS so much! Stefan and Caroline are the last two people I want so badly to be on the spin-off....Leave DE and their doomed relationshio to the remaining 5 viewers.

The March 28 episode is the 18th of the season, right? Becauce Joseph Morgan stated in an interview it's a must-see for Klaroline lovers :-) Totally looking forward to the Klaus receives Caroline’s reluctant help part! And now there's also Elijah's return in it. Couldn't be happier! (And I don't care at all about Damon/Elena/Stefan)

@Tvdiva731 I AGREE. they seriously don't have a storyline this season other than " do everything to help Elena" REALLY frustrating. No one cares about Elena ! God.
