Bonnie’s friends finally learned the truth in the last episode: the witch died after casting a spell to bring Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) back to life. Damon took the news especially hard because he hated that Elena (Nina Dobrev) has lost someone else that she loves.
In “Monster’s Ball,” Damon has a plan to bring Bonnie back that involves using Silas (Paul Wesley). Unfortunately, Silas wants something in return for his help: he tells Damon that he wants him to kill his brother. This leads to a violent confrontation.
Elsewhere, Elena meets a student named Aaron (Shaun Sipos) and shares a dance with Dr. Maxfield (Rick Cosnett), who has a disturbing message for her. Considering he turned Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) into a vampire in the last episode, we’re definitely curious what the professor has to say.
