Storyline

Stefano's duel in cruelty among 'merely physical' lovers finally brings Caroline to turn her feelings back on, over a destroyed last letter from her late mother Liz, but in grief she refuses further contact. Bonnie is furious to learn that Damon didn't hand Elena the cure but stole the ascendant as reward if mother Lily triggers Stefano back to humanity, which might allow Kai to escape. Enzo shows surprising sympathy when his 'creator' Lily admits she can't suppress her ripper nature. Convinced Damon won't allow her to retrieve her ripper family, she tries to turn Elena against him by telling her he had the cure, but he now proposes to take it together. Alaric successfully proposes to Jo. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Damon says that he will take the cure with Elena, however it had already been well established in the show's history that the cure consists of 1 single dose, and cannot be taken by more than one vampire. Both Damon and Elena knew this, yet neither of them brought it up in the conversation. See more »
