The Vampire Diaries is taking Thanksgiving off and will next air a new episode on Thursday, December 4.

This is sad news, but also welcome news... because we have A LOT to digest following The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8.

We learned this week that Liv and Luke are next in line to head up the Gemini Coven. Except they have to merge on their upcoming 22nd birthday, leaving the weaker of the witches dead.

Also, Jo is their sister! She saved them from a murderous Kai back in 1994 and left her magic in a dagger outside the family's home in Portland.

This is the same home Damon found himself in, opposite Kai's father, who was so distressed by the possibility of his son returning and taking all of Jo's powers that he actually tried to kill Jo!

Think your family is effed up?

On The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8, viewers were invited to Friendsgiving. But Caroline's perfectly-organized dinner was quickly hijacked by a tale about Liv and Luke's family... which also includes Jo and Kai.

Get comfortable, THGers. This episode spewed forth a great deal of mythology and exposition...

Jo vaguely recognized Liv as soon as she arrived for Friendsgiving and we later learned why via a series of flashbacks. Let's hammer them out bullet-point style, shall we?

Goodbye, Damon Salvatore? Hello... Liam Davis?!?

On The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 7, Damon did all he could to jog Elena's memory of their love, only to reverse course and realize toward the end of the hour that she's better off without him.

And in the official network preview for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 8 (airing next Thursday, November 20 at 8/7c), we see that Elena has grown close enough to Liam that she makes a startling admission to the pre-med student.

Wait... you're a WHAT?!?

Elsewhere on "Fade Into You," Elena and Caroline will host a "Friendsgiving" celebration, though it will turn dangerous for Jo and Stefan will travel to Portland with Alaric to dig up some information on the Gemini Coven.

When I look into your eyes... all I see is a stranger.

So Elena said to Damon on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 7, as her attempts to recharge her positive memories of her not-actually-dead boyfriend didn't go as she hoped.

That is, until Elena stepped over the Mystic Falls border and a flood of recollections did come rushing back to her.

Of course, she risked death by doing so, prompting Damon to pull her back to the other side (no, not that Other Side) and also prompting him to come to a realization:

Elena really is better off without me.

Damon Salvatore did not exactly enjoy a happy homecoming on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 6.

That's generally the outcome when your girlfriend has had all positive memories of you wiped away... and when your best friend was responsible for it... and when you nearly get killed because your brother turned over your other best friend to the town's vampire hunter.

So, yeah. Not exactly what Damon envisioned upon his return to present day Mystic Falls.

We ended the hour with him and Elena locking eyes, Damon hopeful this would jog her loving memory. Did it work?

Not according to the teaser above, which previews The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 7 and which makes it rather clear that Elena doesn't feel anything for Damon.

While The Stefan Salvatore Apology Tour made its way through The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 6, the bulk of this installment focused on Stefan's suddenly-returned handsome brother.

Oh, yes, present day Mystic Falls: Damon Salvatore is back.

But did he enjoy a welcome homecoming?

In a word: No.

After rehashing part of what went down in 1994 (leaving out any mention of Kai and saying that Bonnie wasn't actually there), Damon is told by Stefan about the whole Elena memory erasing thing.

This makes it hard for Damon and Alaric to enjoy some bourbon together because Damon is angry over his best friend's actions, but Alaric says he won't return Elena's memories unless she asks him to.

The CW has given fans a very early Christmas present:

Lumps of coal in their television-viewing stockings!

We mostly kid, but the network has come out with its calendar of fall finales, as all programs will take a long hiatus next month, likely returning at some point in February.

What will you do with this sudden expansion of free time? Simply watch TV online instead, we presume, though you could spend it with your family... we suppose.

Someone pass the Kleenex please. We're still recovering from the closing scene of The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5.

Yup, Damon Salvatore is now back in Mystic Falls, reuniting with his brother to end the latest installment of this CW hit.

But will everything be all happy go lucky now that Damon is back in the present day? Not exactly, based on the following teaser for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 6:

What else can fans look forward to on an installment titled "The More You Ignore Me, the Closer I Get?"

When does some simple corn maze fun turn into an all-out disaster?

As evidenced by events on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5... when Ivy gets loose in Mystic Falls, partially eats some guy to death, that guy stumbles in front of Tyler's truck, and Tyler subsequently plows through the Homecoming party.

OUCH! Times, like, 79.

The corn massacre left many developments in its wake. To wit:

Welcome to celebrate Halloween and Homecoming?

Both will play a role on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5, an installment that airs on Thursday, October 30 and which must follow up one of the best TVD hours in recent memory.

We learned the identity of Kai and of Sarah's mother this week. We learned that Damon did on May 10, 1994. We learned what happened to Ivy. And Elena learned what Alaric did to her.

So, how will next Thursday's outing top The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 4?

Caroline will help Ivy transition into a member of the undead, while Elena will continue trying to move on by inviting Liam to a party at the corn maze.
