Expect to see:
Stefan and Klaus are on a ripper rampage, but when they get to Tennessee, Klaus has very special plans for werewolf Ray (guest star David Gallagher). Meanwhile, back in Mystic Falls, Elena's friends are trying to help her enjoy her 18th birthday, but she's not really in the celebratory mood. Caroline and Tyler try to keep their relationship platonic, but things get complicated when Tyler brings a random date to Elena's birthday party. Jeremy is still dealing with the ghosts of his dead girlfriends, but he's not turning to Bonnie for help -- instead, he needs a favor from his new co-worker, Matt.
