There are only three episodes left of The Vampire Diaries
season 2, and with this week's episode ominously titled "The Last Day," things are going to turn south very quickly. Video: Watch the Trailer for "The Last Day" >>
Klaus is in town and Elijah has agreed to work with Elena to take him down, but is it really that easy? In this clip from the episode, Stefan and Damon once again engage in their epic debate over how best to protect Elena.
The debate isn't simply about the brothers, it's a larger issue of optimism vs. pessimism. Stefan is the eternal optimist, confident that things will work out the way they've planned. Damon, however, is sure that things will fall apart and is looking for alternative, more dangerous ways to save her. If history has taught us anything, it's that Damon is probably right, since nothing ever goes as planned on The Vampire Diaries
Will everybody survive "The Last Day"? With Klaus in town, the full moon coming, the Sacrifice on tap and the return of Tyler, it seems unlikely that everyone is going to walk away unscathed. Stefan is looking out for the "collateral damage," making sure everyone is safe, but Damon is only concerned with Elena, and he seems willing to let absolutely anyone else die if it will help keep her safe. With that kind of protection, things could definitely get ugly.The Vampire Diaries
airs Thursday at 8pm on the CW.(Image and video courtesy of the CW)
