We have a new promo video clip and official synopsis out for this week's The Vampire Diaries Halloween special episode, titled Monster's Ball, so you can get your TVD fix of the day without having to resort to gorging yourself on human blood. After last week's Stefan-centered ep, it looks like in the fifth episode of the fifth season there will be an increased focus on Damon and Elena, while also including B-and-C- stories revolving around Caroline and Katherine. Here's the official summary provided by The CW:
Elena is touched by a sad, secretive student named Aaron (), while she and Damon attend the Whitmore Historical Ball dressed as Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII. There, she shares a dance with Dr. Maxfield (), who has a disturbing message for her. Meanwhile, best friend Caroline’s own evening at the Ball takes her from happiness to heartbreak.Elsewhere, Nadia () reveals her surprising history to Katherine, and Damon tries to make a deal with Silas, who demands Damon commit an unthinkable act which leads to a violent confrontation.
And here's a look at the official extended 30-second promo, to whet your appetites even more (don't feast off my jugular just yet, though, if you please!):
