NEVER IS A VERY LONG TIME - Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to prevent Elena (Nina Dobrev) from being a victim of Klaus' (guest star Joseph Morgan) plan to break the curse. Damon's actions put him at terrible odds with Stefan (Paul Wesley) and the tension that started brewing between the brothers over their differing opinions of how to help save Elena's life blows up into full-scale conflict. Tyler (Michael Trevino) returns to Mystic Falls after receiving a disturbing phone call. With the full moon marking the arrival of the sacrifice ritual, Stefan and Elena spend a romantic day together -- afraid it might be their last. Sara Canning, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig and Matt Davis also star. J. Miller Tobin directed the episode written by Andrew Chambliss & Brian Young.
