Uh oh -- thanks to The CW releasing the official synopsis for the second episode of "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 on Thursday (Sept. 19), it's safe to say that Stefan won't be escaping his underwater prison anytime soon. But at least Damon knows that something is up! 

Also ongoing in "True Lies" is Bonnie's denial that she can reverse her current "dead" situation, as she still hasn't let Jeremy tell anyone that she's actually dead and not just traveling. However, when Elena and Caroline get assigned a third roommate instead of Bonnie at college, the jig might be up.

Check out the full official synopsis below:

"Without telling Elena that Stefan is missing, Damon turns to Sheriff Forbes for help finding his brother. Elena and Caroline try to find out who is covering up a campus murder, and a fellow Whitmore student named Jesse (guest star Kendrick Sampson) gives Elena some intriguing information about Professor Wes Maxfield (guest star Rick Cosnett). While Jeremy struggles to return to his old life, he continues to be the only person who can see and talk to Bonnie, but he can't convince her that it's time to let the others know that she sacrificed her own life for his. After learning that Silas is searching for Katherine, Damon asks Matt and Jeremy to keep her out of sight, but the situation quickly spirals out of control. Finally, Nadia (guest star Olga Fonda) uses violence to make a point about her own agenda."
