‘The Vampire Diaries’ preview: Enter Sage — and romance!

What role will she play?

In just two days, “The Vampire Diaries” will be finally gracing our TV screens again for an episode entitled “1912” — and we have yet another video peek at what to expect.

This video actually showcases both “TVD” and its companion “The Secret Circle,” and more so than any actual spoilers here we just see plenty of romance. With tension building for so long between Damon, Stefan, and Elena, we knew that things were going to come to a head here eventually. Is the peak of the drama going to come in this episode? Probably not, but the flashbacks to a hundred years ago should give us a better understanding as to why Damon has the relationship that he does with Stefan, and what turned him into someone so dark and cynical.

We see Cassidy Freeman’s Sage briefly in this promo, and she is also going to play a major part in this episode. After all, she seems connected in some way to the Salvatore brothers, and the fact that she is a vampire certainly leaves the door open for an appearance in the present day. (As a matter of fact, photos from upcoming episodes confirm that Sage is not merely going to be restricted to the past.)

As fantastic as all this is, though, we’ve already reported on what you can’t expect in this episode — appearances from Caroline or Klaus. Sorry, fans of that pairing — you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer. While the Originals storyline is not brought too much into play this week, either, some flashbacks to Alaric’s past should at least leave us with a better understanding of who he is as well a the murders that are currently going on in Mystic Falls.

What do you think about this new video?
