Now that Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) have hooked up — which helped TVD become the most talked about primetime network TV show on social media last week, per Trendrr — having everyone on an island should be tons of fun.

Spoiler alert: Bonnie (Kat Graham) must survive this week’s episode — and Jeremy must succeed in killing Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic)? — because they’re working together to decipher the message of the Hunter’s mark. As for Caroline (Candice Accola) and Tyler (Joseph Morgan), they’re back in Mystic Falls, where Tyler confronts Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and Caroline gets “caught up in the violence that follows.” (Altogether now, NOOOOOOOOOOO.)
