Welcome to the Mystic Falls High School prom! On this week's The Vampire Diaries, it's time for another dance, but this one is unlike any of the other's because it's prom. With Elena, Caroline, Stefan, Matt, and Bonnie set to graduate, they get to spend one night celebrating their senior year as normal teenagers. Or, not....
Spoiler Alert: This preview includes The Vampire Diaries spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.
In "Pictures of You," the prom is far from normal with a humanity-free Elena as she continues to wreak havoc wherever she goes and a powerful Bonnie who has difficulty controlling her power.
Stefan and Damon have a plan. Instead of trying to get Elena to take the cure, Stefan and Damon come up with a new way to bring back the Elena they both love. An unforeseen repercussion of their plan is the emotional pain it will cause them. Plus, it provides an opening for the brothers to be manipulated in an unexpected way.
Elijah makes a decision about the cure. At a family meeting with Klaus and Rebekah, Elijah makes Rebekah an offer. If she can prove that she truly wants to live as a human, he will hand over the cure to her. Will Rebekah pass his test? And, will she still want to be a human if she does?
A Prom King and Queen are selected. The outcome of the election will be surprising, but the aftermath will be even more shocking.
Silas is determined to get what he wants. Silas will stop at nothing to get what he wants even if that means manipulating and hurting those that he needs to help him. His ability to appears as anyone seems to be limitless.
Klaroline has a moment. It's touching and heartfelt. These two are almost too adorable for words.
It's a "Friend Prom," which leads to a few different pleasant and delightful dance pairings. It's a dance! Expect the unexpected when it comes to dance partners. Could new romantic entanglements develop? How about the re-emergence of old relationships?
Bonnie's powers make an appearance.
In the preview, Bonnie mentions that her couch caught on fire
, but that is only the beginning of what she is able to do. She will use her powers to provide protection, but also to cause harm. Is she unstoppable?
Klaus gets a message that will send him to New Orleans. The transition to next week's "The Originals" backdoor pilot which takes place in New Orleans is revealed.
And, so much more happens. What's mentioned is just the beginning of the epic nature of "Pictures of You." It's a non-stop hour of intrigue, manipulation, and action. By the end, decisions or movement will be made in regards to Elena's humanity-free life, Silas' plan, romantic entanglements, and the cure.
