The third episode of the fifth season will give viewers new insight into Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) past. We’re going to meet Tessa (Janina Gavankar), a mysterious young woman who seems to know a lot about Stefan’s history and the dark secrets it holds.
In the present, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Katherine (Dobrev) both have the same dream that shows Stefan in danger and they want to help save him. The two manage to convince Damon (Ian Somerhalder) to work with them, but will Tessa’s story make them think twice? More importantly, what does she know about Damon’s future?
Meanwhile, Silas (Wesley) continues to search for Katherine and forces an unwilling accomplice to aid him. Matt (Zach Roerig) gets caught in the middle and it could prove to be lethal. But why does Silas want to find Katherine so badly? This episode will give us that answer.
