So much is said in-between the carefully worded synopsis we always get for The Vampire Diaries. We took a stab at decoding “The Sun Also Rises” to see what it would reveal.

THE SACRIFICE RITUAL BEGINS — With the arrival of the full moon, Elena (Nina Dobrev) tries to prepare for whatever Klaus (guest star Joseph Morgan) has planned and Tyler (Michael Trevino) faces his second transformation.

Small Screen Scoop Translation: It’s time for the thing TVD has been building up to for almost all season. This is what it was all about. And there’s a full moon, which means Tyler is around going nuts somewhere. Plus, Klaus is around, which means BIG shit is going down.

The terrifying events quickly spin out of control, despite an unexpected act of courage.

Small Screen Scoop Translation: Someone is going to do something smart that seems stupid to everyone else. Probably Damon. Maybe Bonnie. Someone who’s been on the fringe, so it’ll be a surprise. The ritual WILL start, and it’s going to freak all the fans out how far they get.

Finally, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) admits the truth to Stefan (Paul Wesley) about a terrible new development they must face.

Small Screen Scoop Translation: Damon will be the one to piss Stefan off, yet again. And just when you think it can’t get worse, it probably will.

Steven R. McQueen, Sara Canning, Kat Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig and Matt Davis also star. Paul M. Sommers directed the episode written by Caroline Dries & Mike Daniels. (The Vampire Diaries season 2 episode 21)

Small Screen Scoop Translation: These people are also in the episode, but the focus is on Elena, Damon and Stefan. As if you couldn’t guess that already.
