Warning: May contain The Vampire Diaries spoilers!
The upcoming Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 18 "Resident Evil" looks like it might go a long way to getting the series back on track.
A few weeks ago The Vampire Diaries recorded its lowest ever ratings. There has been much speculation as to why - but it now seems that might have just been a temporary lull, as the series announces new twists and turns to its complex plot.
First of all, this episode will see the introduction of new villain Markos - a suave, cool customer who nevertheless has a "unsettling presence".
And secondly, Elena - who has just broken up with Damon - may be about to re-open a old wound as she and Stefan cannot help having involuntary sex-dreams about each other. And Damon finds out!
