Damon decides to be a better person in Elena’s and has the decision tested almost immediately, we find out about the Phoenix Stone, Bonnie has a new suitor in the future, and Julian’s imminent arrival causes some wacky hijinks to ensue…

Poor Damon. He decides to be a better person for Elena and then discovers the Elena is gone because of Lily. Turns out that she’s the one who suggested that Kai put the spell on her which is keeping her in the coffin as revenge on Damon for refusing to help her get her family back. Damon is incensed and decides that he is going to let Lily have Julian back just so he can kill him in front of her. So much for the new Damon. He was behaving himself and then gets his fresh wounds ripped open again by his mom. Sigh….


Speaking of wounds being ripped open, Stefan found out that he could have been a father if Julian hadn’t beat Valerie and caused her miscarriage. He is almost as pissed as Damon, but (being Stefan) he decides that revenge is a dish best served cold. Between the two Salvatore brothers, I would hate to be Lily or Julian. I do not see either of them resting until they get their revenge and it is not going to be pretty, particularly if Valerie joins them. She hate Julian more than either of them do and is convinced that getting rid of Julian will bring Lily back to the person she loves.


I do have to wonder if the other Heretics will do anything if the brothers and Valerie make a move against Julian. Given the way they helped Lily tonight, I think that they love her more than anything else and will want her to be happy unless Julian does something seriously despicable that turns them against him.

I am seriously confused about Bonnie and Enzo. What on earth happens to get the two of them together? While Enzo doesn’t seem to despise Bonnie, she definitely hates him. He seems to just view her as an annoying thing to be brushed out of the way. So yeah, I am really curious as to how this whole thing occurs. And why is Bonnie in a mental institution? What is this one mistake she is talking about? Is it something to do with the Phoenix Stone or does something else happen?

Speaking of the Phoenix Stone, it turns out that the Stone is a prison of sorts for the souls of vampires. So when Julian and Jo were brought back, it really wasn’t the two of them. Rather, each body was actually possessed by the soul of a vampire from the stone. This doesn’t seem to matter to Alaric who seems intent on loving whoever is in Jo’s body. That almost has me suspecting that he is more looking for a companion in the midst of everything and will settle for anyone, especially if that someone is in Jo’s body.

I think Caroline did the right thing when she told Stefan to go be with Valerie. She knows about the baby, but doesn’t know that Stefan knows. This whole situation could get very messy if she and Stefan don’t come clean with each other. I am glad to see that she realized Stefan needed to get some closure with Valerie. I’m not sure if she realizes what could easily happen now that Stefan’s ire has been raised and his protective instincts have come into play.

Until next week!
