With all this craziness in the air will Stefan still try to enrage Klaus with the coffins that store his family? Will Bonnie meeting her mother for the first time in 15 years be a clue to help them defeat Klaus? How will Bonnie handle the history of her mother’s past and how it relates to her? Is there now a new secret bond between Klaus and Caroline, (Candice Accola), that will make Tyler furious with jealousy? Will Tyler going to Caroline’s father Bill Forbes, (Noah Bennet), be a mistake? Will Damon’s interest in Alaric’s new lady friend be a good idea? How will Elena deal with her romantic thoughts of Damon and how she still feels about Stefan? In the end will Bonnie be able to solve the problem at hand, which is how to kill Klaus?
