In this next "TVD" episode, Caroline (Candice Accola) convinces "Elena" (Nina Dobrev) (how long will it be before they realize that's Katherine?) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) to attend Whitmore's "Bitter Ball" for broken-hearted students, hoping it helps everyone move past recent events. Bonnie is intrigued with Liv (Penelope Mitchell), who seems to be dabbling in witchcraft.

Also, after making a disturbing discovery, Stefan (Paul Wesley) has a frustrating conversation with Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey). Damon and Enzo's desire for revenge leads them to resorting to violence to convince Bonnie and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) to help them, but their plan takes an unexpected, horrifying turn.

Meanwhile, Tyler (Michael Trevino) begins to worry about Matt's (Zach Roerig) relationship with Nadia (Olga Fonda), and Dr. Wes (Rick Cosnett) struggles to continue his research project with help from a new benefactor, Sloan (Caitlin McHugh).

The "Total Eclipse of the Heart" promo offers a look at the "murder buddies" together again. "Come on, Damon, you're better than this," Stefan tries to tell his brother, but Damon argues, "On the contrary. I'm better like this."

"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. What do you think of this episode 13 "Total Eclipse of the Heart" preview?
