We know you're struggling through "The Vampire Diaries" eighty-year-long hiatus at the moment, but fear not! The show returns on Thursday, Jan. 27 with "The Descent," and there's even more love triangle drama than usual in Mystic Falls.
Rose ( Lauren Cohan) is rapidly deteriorating from her werewolf bite, but she still finds the time to prod Elena ( Nina Dobrev) into possibly admitting that she may have feelings for both brothers. "It's okay to love them both," Rose says - but keeping an eye on Rose quickly becomes dangerous for Elena as their heart-to-heart goes terribly wrong.
The "life-and-death crisis" hits home for Damon ( Ian Somerhalder) more than he'd expected, and once again, he finds himself struggling to keep his feelings in check to avoid baring his soul to anybody. Can't let anyone catch the great Damon Salvatore in a moment of weakness, of course!
He'll seek Jules out to look for a possible cure for Rose, but Jules stubbornly tells him that the only cure for Rose's affliction is death. Ouch. Judging by the preview photo, Elena may be more willing to comfort Damon than she has been in the past.
Stefan ( Paul Wesley), however, is distracted by Elena's determination to save her friends... even at her own expense.
Meanwhile, Caroline ( Candice Accola) has the best problem in the world: both Matt ( Zach Roerig) and Tyler ( Michael Trevino) are totally into her. Matt tries to rebuild their relationship and come clean about the fact that he still wants to be with her, but after their life-changing night in the cellar together, Tyler can't shake his feelings for her either.
Poor, poor Caroline. We really feel her pain.
What are your thoughts, TVD fans? Who will Caroline pick? Will Rose die? What do you think of Jules?
