In this next "TVD" episode, Caroline (Candice Accola) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) agree to make a trip to Atlanta to find the newly discovered doppelganger in order to keep Sloan (Caitlin McHugh) and the Travelers from harming Stefan (Paul Wesley). Caroline's surprised when Enzo opens up to her about his past, and Stefan and Caroline "share a special moment of friendship."

Meanwhile, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) spend an awkward afternoon at Jeremy's (Steven R. McQueen) parent-teacher conference and hear bad news about his behavior at school. After, Damon reluctantly tells Elena upsetting news about Jeremy's personal life.

Elsewhere, Bonnie (Kat Graham) has an unsettling encounter with Luke (Chris Brochu) and finds out more about his family history, and Liv (Penelope Mitchell) tells Jeremy about the rumors about the Travelers' next move and shows her considerable power. Jeremy then makes an unexpected deal with the newbie witch and a decision that devastates Elena. Will Bonnie and Jeremy find out that Luke and Liv are siblings and know so much more than they're letting on?

Finally, a terrifying turn of events at the Travelers' camp leads to the appearance of their mysterious leader, Markos (Raffi Barsoumian).

The "Rescue Me" promo shows the morning after Elena and Damon's night in bed after agreeing their relationship's toxic and they should be over. Elena calls it a "mistake," but it's a mistake Damon wants to keep making. However, Elena's going to have more serious problems than her love life, while Damon's going to be lamenting how to explain to his brother that he "broke up with the love of his life and then broke the bed."

Plus, don't forget to check out the promotional photos the CW has released in the slideshow to see more of Stefan, Caroline, Sloan and the Travelers, and Damon and Elena with Liv.

"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. What do you think of the episode 17 "Rescue Me" photos and promo?
