Get ready for Flashback Stefan in the September 29 episode of The Vampire Diaries, entitled "The End of the Affair". The awesome season 3 premiere of The Vampire Diaries last week showed us that we're dealing with a very different Stefan. He's clearly trying to hang on to some of his humanity (like when he called Elena at the end of the episode), but it's clearly tough for him to do so.
Pretty Little Liars actress Claire Holt will be making her first appearance in this episode as a vampire with ties to Stefan's past, one who still carries a flame for him. Stefan and Klaus will unexpectedly find her in Chicago and we'll also be flashing back to Stefan's time in the Windy City in the 1920s. Back in Mystic Falls, Damon gets another lead about Stefan and Klaus' location, so he and Elena will head out of town to try and track the pair down (because that turned out so well last time, right?).
Caroline is in a serious pickle. At the end of the season 3 premiere, Mrs. Lockwood shot her with some sort of paralyzing agent and now our favorite blonde vampire is down for the count. It appears that Mommy Lockwood isn't happy about her son fornicating with a vampire and it looks like Caroline will be in danger up until this episode as well. Tyler will turn to Sheriff Forbes after becoming concerned about Caroline.
