Depressed, heart-broken and oh so pissed off Silas is on the run and who knows what he’s up to. As we know from the previous episode “Handle With Care”, Amara is back and is willing to kill Silas to save herself. So much for one true love. At least Stefan has his memory back but is that a great thing? Read the recap HERE!
Poor Stefan is remembering all his pains and toils and getting caught up with all the Mystic Fall craziness. Now that they have to keep Amara safe, everyone is waiting for Silas to perform the spell to bring back Bonnie.
Fun stuff with Katherine though as Dr. Maxfield runs some tests on her, she’s aging and faster than she knows. According to the doc she’s got a couple months to live. As her daughter goes to college to go find her, the two chitchat it up.
Things get weird when Jeremy and Bonnie go to give Amara dinner and she sees and talks to Bonnie. Bonnie and Jeremy get things going as they discuss plans with Elena and Damon about making Bonnie be the anchor so that she can be in both places at once. Though to perform this they would need a witch and this is when Damon goes to Qetsiyah for obvious reason. Filling her in on the anchor swap from Amara to Bonnie, Qetsiyah says she needs something powerful to perform the spell.
As Elena tries to make Stefan not kill Silas fearing that it is too dangerous, Stefan details his life in the safe, drowning and trying not to lose hope. To make peace with his emotions, he feels he must be the one to destroy him.
Now as Qetsiyah has jumped in on the plan to make Bonnie the anchor, kill Amara and have Silas stay on the other side forever, she has asked to have all the doppelgangers unite. Elena, Katherine and Amara all get together for Qetsiyah as she starts the spell. All seems to be going well until a powerful being, or Silas spiritually interrupts. Silas now in Mystic Falls and in front of Qetsiyah and thrusts a dagger in her. Now as he leaves her to die Stefan calls him to let his know that he has Amara. As Silas finds Amara in the woods, emotions take over and both profess their love. Amara ready to die, begs Silas to kill her, until Stefan comes and the two battle it shortly until Stefan sends a dagger into Silas.
Back at the house, Qetsiyah is finishing the spell with Elena. Elena begs Damon to go find Stefan to make sure he isn’t hurt. Little too late, Damon finds Amara in the woods stabbing herself and slowly dying. Bonnie shows up to Jeremy to say her goodbye as she tells him that Amara is dying. Hearts racing, Amara dying and Qetsiyah performing the spell, Bonnie asks Jeremy to tell her the third thing he wanted to tell her. As he goes to touch her, he does! Elena calls her name and her and Caroline run to Bonnie. She’s back! But wait, is there a catch?
Now that the spell is complete Amara is dead and Silas is on the other side, Qetsiyah decides to kill herself. Much to Katherine’s distaste, who was waiting for her to stop her from aging. As she slowly goes she says, “True love prevails, universe be damned.”
Now to the catch, as Bonnie is now back, Tessa/Qetsiyah appears and tells her, now that she is the anchor every living soul that dies will run pass her, she will feel every single death and it will hurt like hell. Are you kidding me right now? Poor Bonnie. Caroline goes back to school and tells Katherine that she must move out, a poor aging K is miserable and ready to pack her bag when her daughter shows up again and tells her to go with her back to Prague. Katherine rejects her invitation and tells her that she will never see her again.
Elena and Stefan have a discussion in the woods about Elena feeling guilty about being happy the past summer while Stefan was miserable. He claims that he wanted Elena to be the one that would rescue him, and Damon. As Stefan buries Silas, thoughts of his misery and being drowned in the safe come back to him and he collapses. Thinking it was supposed to be over once Silas was dead he gets worried.
Next week we deal with Stefan still feeling Silas and the emotions that he desperately wanted to end and Bonnie’s new life as the anchor to the living and dead.
