Looks like everyone's a sucker for a decade-themed high school dance, and that includes the characters of The Vampire Diaries. Tonight there's a 1950s dance party in Mystic Falls and you're all invited to enjoy the colorful costumes and music, not to mention the mystery that's about to unfold when Stefan and Damon attempt to figure out the identity of the new vampire in town.
Going into episode 12 of The Vampire Diaries, the most important thing to know, however, is the big revelation about Elena's identity. It turns out she's adopted--- which would explain how she can be related to Katherine. And as mentioned in our spoiler section, tonight's episode "will make it very clear to viewers that the mystery of Elena's adoption will be an important part of this season - and that there will be answers."
But before we go into the big mystery, expect major high school drama to unfold as Elena shows up at the dance with two dates, Stefan and Damon--- much to the chagrin of Caroline and Bonnie. Aunt Jenna is also present, desperately flirting with Professor Alaric, who seems to be distracted by the fact that he's in the same room with Damon.
Meanwhile, there's a new bar tender in Mystic Grill in the form of Sean Faris (Never Back Down) whose character Ben, a former high school football-star, comes to Bonnie's rescue when he notices Damon pestering her.
