The CW grants the trio another season.
Celebuzz attended a press screening of Thursday’s episode of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries titled “American Gothic.”

First and foremost, it marks the return of Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and an upcoming reunion for the siblings Originals – anyone smell a backdoor pilot coming on the season finale?

Of course, Elijah adds a whole new level of competition to the race for The Cure. He has been quietly moving his chess pieces around while seemingly letting his siblings and the Mystic Falls crew do all the footwork for him.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8PM on The CW.
