It's Thursday, and you know what that means, The Vampire Diaries is back with an all-new episode, "The Ties That Bind." Tonight, things get intense in Mystic Falls as two newcomers join in the fight to destroy Klaus (Joseph Morgan) — Bonnie's (Kat Graham) mom Abby (Persia White) and her friend Jamie (Robert Richard), who is seen shooting Stefan (Paul Wesley) in a new preview!

But Abby and Jamie aren't the only ones out for blood. Caroline's (Candice Accola) father, Bill (Jack Coleman), threatens her hybrid boy toy Tyler (Michael Trevino), and rumor has it, they eventually form some sort of unexpected alliance!
Also, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) takes interest in Dr. Fell (Torrey DeVitto) as she spends more and more time with his buddy Alaric (Matt Davis), but will he discover the truth about her past?
Plus, Elena (Nina Dobrev), who appears to form a bond with Jamie, continues to figure out a way to stop Klaus, as he is persistent on getting Stefan to give him his coffins back.
