This much we know about the upcoming midseason finale of The Vampire Diaries: Tyler will transition to a werewolf during the hour.

This much we've teased about: Stefan and Katherine will get it on during down time in the tomb.

While it's impossible to predict what will actually go down on "By the Light of the Moon" - due to this show's penchant for shocking twists and turns - the official episode description also states that Bonnie and Luca will work on a new spell together, and Elijah will show up with a surprising offer.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

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.

Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie, will haunt me, forever.

Damon
