“The Vampire Diaries” is all new on Thursday, Nov. 21, and we’ve got the scoop on what you can expect from episode 8, “Dead Man On Campus.”

According to a synopsis, Elena will be back at Whitmore College and doing what college students do best – partying! With the help of Caroline, the pair will throw a big party. But like every previous party they’re a part of, drama follows. This time the drama is Jesse, who “suddenly needs Caroline’s help.” (Looks like Jesse’s new life will be exposed!)

While Caroline deals with her crush, Damon pays a visit to Dr. Wes Maxfield in order to get some answers … and makes a “terrifying discovery about a secret society.” As Damon does the dirty work, Elena will continue to bond with Aaron after discovering they have a lot in common.

Back in Mystic Falls, Katherine will surprisingly be helping out the gang. By doing what, you may wonder? Besides a favor for Matt, she’ll also be helping “get through to Stefan, who is still struggling to overcome the events of the summer.” And unfortunately Stefan’s not the only one having a hard time. Bonnie’s also finding it difficult to “cope with her new reality.”
