Elena's return is not going to be a smooth one. Katherine injected werewolf venom into Elena, causing the "Ripper" virus. As a result, Elena is going to suffer from some wicked hallucinations. TV Guide wrote,
"If you thought Katherine being sucked into hell was bad, just wait until you see what Elena is about to go through. Not only does she have the vampire-eating virus, but her hallucinations will also cause her to go a bit nutso."
What are the hallucinations going to focus on? Some are speculating that they will have to do with Elena's relationship with Damon, who also has the virus. A previous spoiler indicated that he will tell her the truth about his killing spree and more recently WetPaint suggested that Damon's life could be in danger as a result.
"One nip from Super Ripper Virus-infected Elena could spell the end for Damon. Most recently, this was demonstrated by Nadia, who relived the centuries-long search for her mother as she lay dying from Tyler's hybrid bite," the report read. The Damon-Elena or "Delena" relationship will be messy in the upcoming episode because of their current condition and Damon's recent behavior."
It seems like Elena is not going to be a happy person in "While You Were Sleeping." Not only is she going to have to deal with her hallucinations and find out about Damon's extracurricular activities, she will also discover that he killed Dr. Wes Maxfield, the one person who might have been able to cure them. Will Elena go over the edge? Is Damon's life in danger?
"The Vampire Diaries" season 5, episode 16 will air on March 20.
