'The Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Spoilers: A Cure for Damon and Elena?

"The Vampire Diaries" fans are grappling with the deception and drama of season five, and spoilers have leaked online ahead of Thursday's installment.

The episode entitled "While You Were Sleeping" is scheduled to air on Thursday, March 20, and an insider discussed the possibility of a cure for Damon and Elena, according to TV Guide. Describing a cure as a "safe bet" on the show, the television scoop noted that an antidote would not be readily available for "The Vampire Diaries" characters, and that everyone in Damon's path is in danger.

"He's just going to try to eat everyone," star Ian Somerhalder said of Damon.

Fortunately, another character, hinted to be a witch, will save the day, according to TV Guide.

Meanwhile, The CW has released two sneak-peek videos of this week's episode, "While You Were Sleeping." The synopsis is as follows: "Damon tries to find the right way to make a disturbing confession to Elena; Caroline discovers a scary secret in Dr. Wes' files; Enzo claims to have a solution everyone is searching for; Sloan reveals new information on the importance of doppelgangers."

During Thursday's show, Stefan must update Elena on what happened while Katherine had control of her body, including when Katherine stabbed her with toxic werewolf venom and that Damon was injected with the vampire feeding serum. While Elena wants to call Damon, will she still feel the same way about him after he makes a "disturbing confession"?

Further providing insight on season five, executive producer Julie Plec also provided some spoilers about Katherine earlier this year.

"She's going to be at her best of no good," Plec told E! News. "The thing that's so great is that she's so into Stefan right now and so not into Damon right now, and yet Elena was about ready to remember her relationship with Damon, and Damon was all ready to win back his girl, so you can only imagine how that's going to go down. Katherine does some of the bitchiest stuff as Elena in the next part of the chapter. It's great. Katherine at her most diabolical."

"The Vampire Diaries" airs at 8 p.m. EST Thursdays on the CW.
