This week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries centered on the funeral of what was the last remaining Lockwood. Tyler’s fate was sealed when he crossed Damon’s path on his way back to his home, Mystic Falls. “Coming Home Was A Mistake” finally revealed why Tyler came back to the home he left behind months ago.
As everyone is reeling from the news that Damon murdered Tyler, Bonnie has Enzo captive in the cabin they lived in. She is trying to get him to turn his humanity switch back on. While in her custody, Enzo tries to escape but is unable to do so as Bonnie has set up a powerful barrier spell. She used the flame of imprisonment to lock Enzo inside the cabin. Only Bonnie can come and go as she pleases as she is the one who lit the flame. She is also the only one who can put it out and won’t do so until Enzo turns back on his switch.
Back at the armory Ric finally realized that Georgie has gone missing. He asks Sybil if she knows where she is and doesn’t get anything from her. He then has his intern do research on her whereabouts while he attends Tyler’s funeral.
At Tyler’s funeral Stefan, Ric, Caroline and Matt are all greeted by Damon who has dug graves for everyone promising to bury them all if they don’t back off. Not taking his threats seriously, Stefan tries to talk him down. This only infuriates him even more. He takes out his anger on Matt and force feeds him some of his blood, threating to kill him and turn him if anyone takes a step closer. The group finally gets the message and Damon releases Matt then parts ways.
Out of ideas Bonnie turns to Caroline for help with Enzo. Caroline tells Bonnie that she was able to flip on her switch by dealing with her biggest fear head on.
Stefan comes up with a plan of his own and tells Caroline and Ric that they have to put Damon down in order to save him from himself. This is only a temporary fix until they can figure out how to break Damon from Sybil’s spell.
Speaking of Damon and Sybil…. Damon pays a visit to our resident siren. Turns out he felt something when he killed Tyler which means he isn’t fully under Sybil’s control. There is still hope! However, that doesn’t mean Sybil will stop trying to rope him in. She tries to play on Damon’s emotions and asks him how Elena would feel about this in hopes to erase his emotional past. When that doesn’t work she threatens him with Cade. Sybil then tells Damon to go find his brother and see if he still wants to feel any human emotion after seeing the look on his face. She knows that patching things up with Stefan means Damon will have to feel loads of pain. Pain from killing Tyler and hurting his friends, pain from the disappointment he knows Elena would feel because of what he has done and much, much more.
Also trying to patch things up were Matt and his Dad. They were beginning to box up Tyler’s things when Matt lays into his Dad about the struggles he dealt with growing up; the time his Dad missed after he left home. A box was then delivered to Tyler’s home for Matt. A guy from the armory dropped it off and enclosed was a letter from Tyler asking for Matt to help him find someone. That someone being Seline. Turns out Tyler was helping Virginia St. John find the sirens and he wants Matt to finish the job. Inside the box were pictures of Seline, the second siren everyone is looking for.
Seline being her ever-so-helpful/deceitful self takes the twins to the carnival in town and sirens her way to winning the girls a gold fish. She makes sure it is a dead one so that they can “bury” it at home. Little do they know that they will be “burying” Georgie as well. Seline takes the twins to a warehouse and begins to tell them the story of Cade. She then has the twins call to Cade and set the gold fish and Georgie’s body on fire using some of Seline’s magic.
Speaking of fires… Bonnie uses gasoline to light the cabin on fire. She is using Enzo’s fear of abandonment against him. She refuses to leave the blazing home until he turns his switch back on. Even if that means she dies in the process. Bonnie passes out from smoke inhalation and possibly carbon monoxide poisoning. This is enough for Enzo to turn his switch back on and toss Bonnie outside into the fresh air. When she comes to Enzo is still burning in the cabin. Not willing to lose him again she dashes inside and puts out the flame of imprisonment with her hand. Enzo scoops her up and they escape before the home comes down. Benzo forever!
The Salvatore brother relationship may not last as long as Bonnie and Enzo, especially after Stefan was able to grab Stefan at the carnival. Well Caroline actually shot him with vervain darts. Same difference. They are going to be husband and wife soon enough and they can share the victory, however short-lived it is.
Unfortunately for Stefan and the rest of the gang, Sybil was able to break free from her chamber and leave the armory with the pitchfork. She then heads to Damon and breaks him free from his coffin and chains. He is completely hers now.
This all happens while they have a memorial service for Tyler. This time Enzo and Bonnie join Stefan, Caroline, Matt and Ric. Stefan then turns on the carnival rides on in order to show the group that they need to remember to live. We then hear Ric writing a diary entry to Elena.
Matt and Caroline also have a cute moment together. He asks how the girls are and she shows him pictures. One of the pictures is of the twins with their nanny Seline. Matt tells Caroline about Seline being the second siren and tells her and Ric to rush home. Unfortunately the twins are not there when they arrive. Seline has taken them.
