The Vampire Diaries season 3 continues next week with episode 21, "Before Sunset," and there's a new evil in Mystic Falls now. That could lead to some pretty interesting alliances, as the promo out teases.
Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 21 "Before Sunset" Promo
"Klaus acts on his intentions to leave town with Elena (Nina Dobrev), but finds resistance from a surprising new enemy. Bonnie (Kat Graham) calls on Abby (guest star Persia White) to help her with a difficult spell. As events spiral out of control, Elena is determined to protect Caroline (Candice Accola), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) enlist Tyler's (Michael Trevino) help, while Bonnie and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) take a terrifying risk to make sure her spell is effective. Damon and Stefan have a surprisingly candid conversation about the future."
After TVD left fans emotionally raw with the end of the episode, only to come back with a shocker that resulted in Alaric completing the transformation (though he didn't want to), the next episode is going to see this new ultimate vampire hunter terrorizing Mystic Falls. Will they find a way to stop him before it's too late? Who will end up working together to do just that?
The Vampire Diaries season 3 episode 21 promo for "Before Sunset" (below) begins with a clip of what's been teased in photos: Damon showing up at the door with a bleeding Bonnie. He tells Stefan, "We have a problem." It looks like he's going to be the first one to be clued in to the fact that Alaric is not dead like everyone thought (and cried over), and now it's time for everyone to figure out what to do next.
With Alaric the evil ultimate vampire hunter around, hating on vampires and those siding with vampires, Elena's in danger. It looks like Alaric's not going to waste any time going after her, as he throws her into the lockers and pins her there with a hand around her throat, telling her, "You don't even deserve to live." There's going to be a lot of fightingÂ—and a near staking!Â—going on in that school hallway. How will it end?
Damon's attitude hasn't changed, despite all the drama going on and the uncertainty in the love triangle, and though Klaus tells Stefan, "You're asking me to walk into a certain death," Damon chimes in with "I'll take those odds." Since they all want Elena aliveÂ—Klaus was planning to take her and leave Mystic Falls and create his hybrid armyÂ—it's not too surprising they're teaming up against Alaric. After all, he's not going to be so easy to stop and if ever there was a time to call a very temporary truce, it's in this situation.
