Nina Dobrev better rest up now -- she is going to be pulling some major triple duty on an upcoming episode of "The Vampire Diaries."

In "Death and the Maiden," all three Petrova doppelgangers -- Elena, Katherine, and the original doppelganger Amara -- will be out in full force, and one in particular might provide some good news for Bonnie. 

The CW just released first look photos from the episode, and according to the official synopsis, a conversation with Amara gives Jeremy and Bonnie a "glimmer of hope." Could she possibly have a way to bring Bonnie back from the dead? And how are they able to talk with the long-dead Traveller, since Tessa made her mortal before killing her (therefore making it impossible for Amara to be on the Other Side)?  

Read the full episode synopsis below:

"While Elena and Damon try to explain Amara's situation to Stefan, Dr. Wes (guest star Rick Cosnett) gives Katherine some deeply disturbing news.  Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda) shows up at Caroline's dorm room, searching for Katherine.  After a surprising conversation with Amara, Jeremy and Bonnie share a glimmer of hope.  Silas fails to keep a promise, causing Damon to turn to Tessa (guest star Janina Gavankar) for help with his new plan, and Stefan makes a heartbreaking confession to Damon and Elena."
