The Vampire Diaries” spoilers for season 8 episode 1, the final season of TVD starting Friday October 21, show Stefan and the rest of the Mystic Falls gang are following a trail of blood across the US that Damon and Enzo have left in their wake.

What was in the crypt?

The crypt keeper in the vault below the Armory infected Damon and Enzo as season 7 of TVD closed out and now they’re off on a rampaging bloody spree. Stefan is determined to bring Damon home. Bonnie is losing hope in the hunt and tells Stefan she doesn’t know how much heart she has left.Stefan encourages her and says he needs her.

Bonnie is without magic and, it seems, any optimism. Bonnie tells Stefan she’s tired of hurting. Bonnie has Enzo but not her magical arsenal and there’s some wounds a sexy immortal boyfriend just can’t cure.

It’s all about the villains in season 8

“The Vampire Diaries” season 8 has a new villain that gets inside Damon and Enzo’s heads and feeds off “every terrible thing” they’ve done. That’s a lot of bad unleashed! This new evil is a “she” and TVD fans are desperately hoping that this creature looks like Elena.

There have been rumors of a season 8 return of Nina Dobrev for the swan song episodes of the series she helped catapult to popularity. Nina’s voice did a guest turn in the season 7 finale Gods and Monsters and we have to hope that was a sign of things to come.

Alaric, ancient evil, and blood letting

One of the bitter twists to season 7 was Caroline dumping Alaric to get back with Stefan. That leaves Alaric at loose ends but he hires a sexy new nanny named Seline.

However, this new nanny might not be all she seems because promo photos show her snooping.

“The Vampire Diaries” season 8 spoilers straight from TVD showrunner Julie Plec say that the evil this season is “ancient” and it’s the ultimate evil, the baddest bad any of them have ever faced. Matt is back after walking out last season and Caroline and Alaric struggle with co-parenting.
