Tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries marks the last new installment of the series before it takes a five-week hiatus. While the news of a long break is a big bummer, there's comfort in knowing that the 14th episode will answer a lot of our burning questions and leave us with enough mysteries and twists to chew on while waiting for The Vampire Diaries to return in March.
When we last saw The Vampire Diaries, we learned about the mysteries of 1864. We also discovered that Anna is Pearl's daughter and that Pearl is one of the vampires in Katherine's Tomb. To catch up on what's happened so far, read our recap here.
But perhaps the most pressing matter of the moment is the fact that Elena has now gone missing and is presumably in the hands of vengeful Anna. Desperate to find the love of his life, Stefan seeks Damon's help--- which leads to a very intense conversation between the two brothers. Stefan even goes so far as asking for Damon for forgiveness since it's his fault Katherine got taken away but sorry isn't going to cut it. In fact, Damon even has a death wish for Elena. Check out the video here.
Meanwhile, Jeremy asks Anna to a party in the woods, unaware that she has her own reasons for wanting to meet him there. But the most exciting thing about this episode is Bonnie and Grams working together to open the Tomb, which leaves everyone in shock by what they discover.
