Are you ready for the CW's action packed Thursday night?
We've got your sneak peek at tonight's all-new episodes of "The Vampire Diaries" and "Nikita."
First on "The Vampire Diaries" at 8pm EST, Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Alaric (Matt Davis) take a road trip to Duke University and search through Isobel's research on folklore and paranormal phenomena to see if they can uncover any clues to the mystery surrounding the Lockwood family. Isobel's former student, Vanessa (guest star Courtney Ford, "Dexter") offers to guide them through the research and ends up getting quite an education herself. Stefan (Paul Wesley) comes face to face with a terrifying new danger in the woods, and Tyler (Michael Trevino) makes a shocking discovery about Mason (guest star Taylor Kinney).
Then at 9pm EST on "Nikita," Nikita (Maggie Q) rescues Jill (guest star Julie Gonzalo, "Eli Stone"), a journalist who is trying to expose a conspiracy involving Division and a major plane crash. Michael (Shane West) and Percy (Xander Berkeley) suspect Birkhoff (Aaron Stanford) of being Nikita's inside mole and send Amanda (Melinda Clarke) in to interrogate him. Michael enlists the help of the recruits, Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca), Jaden (Tiffany Hines) and Thom (Ashton Holmes), to help them locate their latest target.
