‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 5 spoilers: Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and confessions

Spring break is coming to the world of “The Vampire Diaries,” and typically when you read those words, there is one thing that commonly comes along with it: Parties! Unfortunately for the characters on this show, they really don’t get the opportunity to have the same sort of party / relaxation time as others, and that leads to sickness, violence, doppelganger revelations, and shocking omissions.

This next new episode has itself a pretty creepy title in “While You Were Sleeping,” and if you want to get a few more little hints when it comes to just what you can expect, allow the official synopsis to be your guide:

“When Stefan (Paul Wesley) tries to explain recent events to a very sick Elena (Nina Dobrev), her first instinct is to call Damon (Ian Somerhalder). At the same time, Damon is trying to figure out how to make a disturbing confession to Elena. While going through Dr. Wes’ files, Caroline (Candice Accola) discovers a frightening secret, and is surprised when Enzo (guest star Michael Malarkey) appears, claiming to have the solution everyone is searching for. At Enzo’s insistence, Caroline asks Stefan to meet her at a mysterious location where they are joined by a group of Travelers, including Sloan (guest star Caitlin McHugh), who reveals new information on the importance of doppelgangers. During spring break on a mostly deserted Whitmore campus, Elena runs into Luke (guest star Chris Brochu), a student who seems to know her, though she has no memory of meeting him. Recently dumped by his boyfriend, Luke proposes that he and Elena spend the break getting drunk together, but she sends him off on an urgent mission to find Bonnie (Kat Graham) and the “newbie” witch, Liv (guest star Penelope Mitchell). Damon finally tells Elena the truth about his recent activities, and they come to a new agreement about their relationship.”

Does this sound intense enough to you? It certainly does to us, and there is really so much worth looking forward to here. Still, the Damon / Elena story stands out the most, largely because of the history that is already there. On the flip side, there are so many guest stars we are still starting to get to know.

Are you surprised at how much good stuff has been actually crammed into this episode? Be sure to share your thoughts below.
