Damon, Stefan and Elena are going on a trip to a secluded cabin, but danger is lurking as Markos and the Travelers are after the doppelgangers.
When "The Vampire Diaries" returns with a new episode next week, Damon, Stefan and Elena try to hide from Markos (guest star Raffi Barsoumian) and the Travelers who are out for blood. They find a perfect place for a hideout in the remote cabin once owned by Caroline's father, but they're not safe yet.
A ghostly presence at the cabin uses violence and fire to make itself known. A preview for the upcoming episode shows someone trying to get Elena drowned when she's relaxing in the bathtub.
Meanwhile, Caroline suspects that Stefan and Elena are keeping a secret, so Damon comes up with a parlor game designed to expose the truth. While Markos plans to break the witches' curse, Matt takes charge of Tyler's plan to get information from one of the Travelers, and Bonnie continues to keep the truth about the Other Side from Jeremy, despite warnings from Grams (guest star Jasmine Guy).
"What Lies Beneath" will air Thursday, May 1 at 8/7c on The CW.
