Damon really thought he had things figured out at the end of The Vampire Diaries Season 7 Episode 3.
He had apprehended Oscar, he had made the call to Lily and he had also made the offer to exchange one Heretic for one quasi corpse in a coffin.
But then Valerie swooped in and killed Oscar (because she feared a return of arch nemesis Julian), forcing Damon to resort to a secondary plan on The Vampire Diaries Season 7 Episode 4 next Thursday.
What will he do in order to get Elena back? Try to use the Phoenix Stone and bring Oscar back to life, right? No problem there!
Okay, we take it back: there will likely be many problems there. A great many. Like, SO SO many problems.
Especially when a bus full of tourists rolls through town. Uh-oh. Talk about unfortunate timing.
Elsewhere, look for Stefan, Caroline, Mary Louise and Nora to attend Whitmore College’s Heaven & Hell ball; while Enzo will return and set off on a quest to discover what Valerie is hiding.
What else can we expect on what the following trailer dubs a "Night of Terror?" What kind of powers does the Phoenix Stone really possess? Is there any chance this new plan possibly works?!?
Check out the sneak peek footage ahead of time and see for yourself.
