It seems that everyone in Mystic Falls conjured up a family reunion on the same day. Alaric was reunited with his almost-brother-in-law Kai Parker, Caroline was reunited with the twins and Bonnie reunited with Enzo.
Kai Parker, probably one of the best villains ‘The Vampire Diaries’ has seen, returned to Mystic Falls without the ability to taste or feel anything due to his purgatory-like state. He is stuck between Hell and Earth but still has the ability to siphon as he did when he walked amongst the living. Unfortunately for Kai, Cade is hunting the escaped prisoner. So Kai seeks refuge from none other than Damon and Alaric. Kai offers to help Damon and Ric kill Cade in exchange for helping him stay on Earth. Damon comes up with another idea. He tells Kai to wake up Elena and in exchange he will help him. He tells Kai that his forgiveness may atone his sins and allow Mr. Parker to rejoin the living. In reality, Damon just wants to use Kai to get Elena back and then kill Kai.
Also on the verge of being killed this episode was Stefan. He was reunited with a very familiar face; Dorian. Turns out Stefan killed his family during his run in Chicago with Niklaus Mikaealson (Klaus) and compelled Dorian to forget about it. Unfortunately for Stefan (and Matt/Caroline who have to clean up his mess), when he became human all those people he compelled began to remember the truth. Dorian in a fit of rage makes Stefan dig his own grave and then proceeds to shoot Stefan in his side.
On the other side of town Bonnie continues to call out to Enzo. She was then interrupted by a suspicious phone call from Damon. He called asking her if there is a way to bring someone back from hell and she figures out that he is with Kai. She then takes matters into her own hands and decides to pay a visit to Cade in hopes of saving Enzo. Bonnie’s psychic abilities are now in full force. So much so that Cade can sense it and wants to teach her how to use them. He tells her to channel her rage and anger as it is what fuels her power. Bonnie is able to find Enzo and he isn’t in hell. He is actually inside a private dimension created by Bonnie in order to protect him from Cade. Enzo is hiding out so that Cade can’t claim his soul. Cade then uses his powers on Bonnie to try and figure out where Enzo is hiding and subsequently learns that Kai is now back on Earth.
Kai is slowly beginning to die again. He starts bleeding from his nose and coughing up blood. Damon and Kai are able to figure out that killing and eating evil people is enough to sustain Kai for now.
Out in the woods Stefan was also on the verge of death. Cade pays him a visit and tells him to let go, offering to give Caroline a mortal life without Stefan. Stefan, like anyone else, doesn’t want to die and lives to see another day. He then hands over files linking him to hundreds of murders, to Dorian. Allowing him to choose his fate. Stefan then tells Caroline he may leave Mystic Falls…. Alone. Could this be the end for Steroline?
Bonnie reaches out to Enzo one more time and is finally reunited with him.
Across town, Caroline is reunited with the twins and learns that they are losing control of their powers. One accidently harms Caroline and the other almost sets her on fire for hurting mommy. Yikes! Is this because of Selene or is it something else entirely?
The twins’ uncle Kai used his own powers to siphon energy from Damon. He claimed that the he needed his energy to resurrect Elena. Instead, after catching on to Damon’s true motives, he used that energy to make him and Elena invisible and/or disappear.
Stefan has to kill Cade but at what cost? Will there be consequences for others, like Elena?
