TV Fanatic had the opportunity to view January 5th's Winter premiere of The Vampire Diaries, "The New Deal". They're treating fans with a spoiler a day until the Thursday night premiere and I'll be passing the spoilers along to my TVD family as they come in. So, check back for your daily dose and sound off with your guesses about the spoilery teasers below :)!!
Teaser #1: Someone leaves Mystic Falls.
Forever? I doubt it, but the set up makes perfect sense and doesn't really leave a door open for this individual to return. Yes, it's a key character and, yes, tears are shed during his/her goodbye.
By whom? To whom? You'll need to tune in and find out. But I can say that it changes one character's outlook and plays a role in the final scene of the episode.
