If you were hoping Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) underwater adventure would end after The Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere, we have some soggy news: According to the new synopsis for Season 5, Episode 2, “True Lies,” the handsomely haired vampire is still MIA.
Damon (Ian Somerhalder) figures Elena (Nina Dobrev) is too busy with keggers and study sessions to be worried with a missing ex, so he turns to old partner in law-abiding, Sheriff Forbes. We always rest easier knowing she’s on the case.
Elena and Caroline (Candice Accola) are doing some of their own Nancy Drew-ing to solve a murder on campus. (Just like Jessica Fletcher, they can’t go anywhere without someone dying.) And they have their own Hardy boy. Hottie McHotterson Jesse (Kendrick Sampson) tells Elena something interesting about Professor Wes Maxfield (Rick Cosnett).
Back in Mystic Falls, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) tries to get Bonnie (Kat Graham) to come out of the ghost closet, but she still wants to keep her recent death undercover. Damon’s new roommate has some other business to attend to, though. The elder Salvatore wants him and Matt (Zach Roerig) on watch-Katherine (Nina Dobrev) duty, because Silas (Paul Wesley) is looking for her. (Good idea. Get the two humans to guard the newly mortal girl from an unkillable ancient vampire.) We can’t imagine why things go awry with this plan.
As if that weren’t enough drama, Matt’s new friend Nadia (Olga Fonda) is putting her own scheme in place and gets violent doing so.
Check out the full synopsis below.
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES —(8:00-9:00 p.m. ET)
“True Lies” (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)
MISSING PERSONS — Without telling Elena (Nina Dobrev) that Stefan (Paul Wesley) is missing, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) turns to Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) for help finding his brother. Elena and Caroline (Candice Accola) 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 (Steven R. McQueen) struggles to return to his old life, he continues to be the only person who can see and talk to Bonnie (Kat Graham), 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 (Zach Roerig) 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. Joshua Butler directed the episode written by Brian Young (#502).
