It feels like forever since there was a new episode of The Vampire Diaries, but all that changes this week. The show returns Thursday at 8pm on the CW with "The Sacrifice," an episode that will find the gang scrambling to find a solution to the Klaus problem.

In this new clip from the episode, the Salvatore brothers try to prove to Elena how awesome they are by offering up their plan to despell the moonstone.

As I see it, there are three major problems with this plan.

First, the moonstone is trapped inside the Tomb with Katherine, and it still has that pesky little spell that locks vampires in like freshness in a Ziploc bag.

Second, the despelling instructions came from Slater, who was being compelled by Elijah at the time. In other words, it's very unlikely that they can even do what they think they can do.

Third, Klaus still murdered Katherine's entire family after she became a vampire and made the ritual with the moonstone moot. So even if Damon and Stefan successfully despell the moonstone, that's no guarantee that Klaus won't murder everyone Elena loves.

In other words, the Salvatores are tilting at windmills, and trouble with a capital "T" is still coming to Mystic Falls.
