We've seen Stefan when he's sober and we've also seen him when he's drunk, whether on alcohol or on human blood. But now it's time to really turn the tables on The Vampire Diaries and reveal Stefan for who he really is: a closet blood junkie!

Vampire Diaries Interview: Matt Davis on the Finale, Isobel and Aliens

Stefan's a Liar and a Thief

Stefan is still struggling with his human blood addiction and the disturbance he caused in the blood bank just confirms that he really is out of control. What's worse is that he's been lying about it to his girlfriend Elena and his brother Damon, who luckily can see right through him. Stefan isn't pleased about his brother's meddling, especially when Damon spills the beans to Elena and even takes his place as Elena's date at the Founder's Day Gala, where Stefan targets and feeds on his next victim, Amber. Now, he's locked up in the Salvatore basement thanks to Elena's shot of vervain, making room for more Damon-Elena moments.  

Bonnie's Back

After skipping town to mourn the death of Grams, Bonnie returns to Mystic Falls and she's cooler than ever. She's warmed up to Caroline and has become cold as stone to Elena because she still blames Stefan and Damon for what happened to her grandmother. But that's not the best part. It looks like she's also been practicing her powers, which seem to work perfectly fine when she used it to stop Stefan from further ravishing Amber.   

Which Vampire Diaries Character Are You?

Uncle John and Pearl

The cloud surrounding Uncle John hasn't cleared up one bit but at least we know why he's not telling on Damon, at least for now. He wants Damon to track down one of Jonathan Gilbert's old inventions, which he suspects is in the possession of Pearl. But Damon doesn't want to help John because he can't really give him what he wants--which is to find Katherine. By the end of the episode, Pearl gives the compass to Damon as a truce while John gains some sort of leverage upon learning that Pearl is the one who wants to buy Elena's father's office and that Jeremy's friend, Anna, is Pearl's daughter.
