The weeks and days have turned in to hours and seconds, as The Vampire Diaries finally returns this evening with its winter premiere.
Visit TV Fanatic the nanosecond tonight's episode ends for a thorough review, discussion and debate - and scroll down for a refresher on the four teases I've offered so far, followed a the fifth and final tidbit...
Teaser #1: Someone will exit Mystic Falls.
Teaser #2: A big secret will be shared.
Teaser #3: A former setting will be seen/used again.
Teaser #4: One character will save the life of another.
Teaser #5: Elena will strike a deal with Klaus.
What will it entail? Who will it involve? My excited lips - or typing fingers, really - are sealed. But you are mere hours away from finding out!
