“The Vampire Diaries” (TVD) Season 5 has just ended and TVD Season 6 is coming soon. In order to make the wait a bit more bearable, let’s go back to the last few episodes of TVD Season 5 starting with the penultimate episode “The Promised Land.” Read on for MNG’s “The Vampire Diaries” recap of Season 5 Episode 21″ Promised Land.”

In “The Vampire Diaries” (TVD) Season 5 Episode 21 “Promised Land,” Damon enlisted Jeremy and Matt’s help to set a trap for Markos. According to The CW, Bonnie (Katerina Graham) revealed to Caroline (Candice Accola) the truth about the Other Side. She also tried to stop Markos (Raffi Barsoumian), while Caroline witnessed one of the Travelers’ violence.

Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) managed to get away from Markos’ control. However, they are trapped in a remote and unfamiliar location. Stefan then discussed some things with Elena and even got philosophical about her relationship with Damon (Ian Somerhalder). Seriously, is this the right time to talk about it when they should be finding a way to get out of that place?

Meanwhile, Damon enlisted Matt (Zach Roerig) and Jeremy’s (Steven McQueen) help to set a trap for Markos. But, what they do not know is that Markos had a surprise waiting for them.

Luke (Chris Brochu) and Liv (Penelope Mitchell) came up with a new but dangerous strategy after their failed attempt to protect the doppelgangers.

On a side note, executive producer Caroline Dries told TV Line about Caroline pursuing someone she likes.

“Caroline’s got a little crush/feeling for someone that’s going to creep up to the surface and cause a potential rift between her and one of her friends. So she’s like, ‘I’m going to push that down. We’re going to see [Caroline] set her sights on [said crush] and try to make a move,” said Dries to the TV Line feature.

Although this will most likely happen in Season 6, at least we have something to look forward to.

“The Vampire Diaries” (TVD) Season 5 Episode 21 “Promised Land” was written by Rebecca Sonnenshine and directed by Michael Allowitz. It aired on Thursday, May 8, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. on The CW.
