Vampire Diaries – Episode 2.12 – The Descent – Synopsis

Thanks to Judy Yam of the CW for sending over the primetime listing that included the following synopsis for Episode 2.12 “The Descent”. Spoiler Alert for those that don’t want to be spoiled.

DOOM, GLOOM AND PERSONAL GROWTH — Stefan (Paul Wesley) has his own ideas about Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) new plan for the future.  While Damon (Ian Somerhalder) tries to get the truth out of Jules (guest star Michaela McManus), he asks Elena to keep an eye on Rose (guest star Lauren Cohan), a situation that turns unexpectedly dangerous.  Caroline (Candice Accola) and Matt (Zach Roerig) try to be honest about their feelings for one another, and Tyler’s (Michael Trevino) reaction to Caroline’s generosity comes as a surprise to her.  Damon struggles to hide his true feelings when a life-and-death crisis hits him harder than he expected.  Matt Davis also stars.  Marcos Siega directed the episode written by Sarah Fain & Elizabeth Craft (#212).

  1. What does this “Damon struggles to hide his true feelings when a life-and-death crisis hits him harder than he expected.” line mean? D:

  2. Aww that is just too exciting! I can’t wait any longer I need to know what happens to Rose. I also can’t wait to see how things turn out w/Delena. Yea!

  3. This sounds like another one if those “like a season finale” episodes! How ARE they going to get all that in one hour! Anticipating this one on pins and needles!

  4. i think it means damon realizes he cared about rose more than he thought. i’m not saying he’s in love with her but it hurts him to lose rose as much as it hurt stefan to lose lexi. after all, rose is the only one that really unerstands his love for elena without thinking its wrong or even one sided for that matter. now he has to lose her and their friendship too on top of everything else he has lost in his life. when will he ever get some redemption? enough is enough already!!!

  5. Uh, no Bonnie :(!

    But this episode seems pretty interesting. Besides Tyler’s transformation, last episode was very boring, especially with the ending. Vampire Diaries has shocking endings, but 2.11 was… bleh. Poor Rose though! Gonna be sad for her and Damon if she dies :(.

  6. cant wait for it!!! i dont know how they are going to put so much info and dramatic scenes in one hour less than an hour bcuz of the commercials.

    HOPING FOR DELENA MOMENTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. When is the next episode coming out??!! i thought it was a 2 week wait from thursday!!

  8. hi
    i am now on my exams in university
    as soon as i finished them i will download episode 12
    but it was so hard for me to accept that Ian Somerhalder didn’t win the people choice award and also for the vampire diaries.It was so weird.

  9. Sooo sad!!!!! I don’t want rose to die!! I really liked her and damon :( not really feelin the delena moments. :/

  10. omg hoping for a delena moment
    poor rose and poor damon he is goin 2 b upset

  11. I dont get why Damon has to be hurt so much? – I mean he cant have Elena because of Stefan, and Rose might die (maybe because of Elena)
    I love Elena, and how she is, but she is actually the reason why Damon is hurt that much..
