The Vampire Diaries preview: "All My Children"

Feb 16, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. ET

Esther, Esther, Esther -- how could you seal your children's fate with the drop of some doppelganger blood? Keep reading for more news on The Vampire Diaries' most dangerous plan yet.

We get it -- the Original siblings are an abomination. Does that really mean they all have to die? Esther certainly won't be winning any mother of the year awards if she carries out her plan to off all her children.

This week's new episode, "All My Children," picks up with the binding spell that Esther used to make her children one on last week's episode -- if one kid goes, they all go now.

Elena helped seal the deal with a drop of her special doppelganger blood, while Elijah was looked right in the eye and lied to -- we know he's not going down without a fight.

The CW's official synopsis for "All My Children" reads: "After starting her day with a startling discovery of Damon's (Ian Somerhalder) latest indiscretion, Elena (Nina Dobrev) is frustrated to find that none of her friends agree with her on how they should react to the Original family's internal power struggle. Once again caught up in the destiny of the Bennett witches, Bonnie (Kat Graham) and Abby (guest star Persia White) find themselves playing a part in a ritual to appease the spirits of nature. When Elijah (guest star Daniel Gillies) gives Damon and Stefan (Paul Wesley) a dangerous ultimatum that puts Elena in danger, they turn to Alaric (Matt Davis) and Meredith (guest star Torrey Devitto) for help with a plan that leads them to a terrible choice."

What do you think of Esther's plan? What does it mean for the fate of The Originals? Oh, The Vampire Diaries -- will you ever stop making our hearts skip a beat?
