Vampire Diaries Sneak Peek: Katherine (Elena?) Confronts the New Kid and Stefan Bleeds Out

It’s a bad time to be a new character on The Vampire Diaries.

New shots from the CW drama’s March 20 episode (8/7c on The CW) reveal several heated confrontations, beginning with Katherine — assuming she isn’t already expelled from Elena’s body by then — and Luke (played by Chris Brochu). The show’s first openly gay teenage character, Luke doesn’t look like he’ll become BFFs with either doppelgänger anytime soon.

And then there’s Stefan, who will probably need to down an entire bottle of Advil to combat the headache he’s suffering at the hands of that no-good Sloan (played by Caitlin McHugh). Here’s hoping the blood doesn’t trickle down to his jacket; it’s impossible to get vampire blood out of wool.

Follow-up question: Why is Caroline just standing there in the background? She looks cute, just not very helpful.
