Mystic Falls really can’t get through one night. While Alaric and Jo try to celebrate their last single nights, they run into a few issues: namely, Lily Salvatore.
Right off the bat we get into some Bachelor and Bachelorette parties. For Jo, it’s just Bon Bon (Kat Graham) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) and a very good looking stripper. For Alaric (Matt Davis) it’s pretty much everyone else in town.
Burbon & Twins
Most people at Alaric’s party are having a great time — that is everyone except two people. Stefan (Paul Wesley) really was missing Caroline; he even hid away in his room and called her (and was creepily surrounded by candles), but he got her voicemail.
The other not so happy one was Matt. He’s hit a breaking point and is really not happy with life in general — or with Tyler, who is actually trying out this whole calm thing. However, together they are a really strangely hot pair. I’m basically shipping Matler now.
Anyway, when Matt gets wasted he even tells Alaric to get out of town to protect himself — because everyone is just a killer.
It’s not exactly horrible advice, since Bonnie and Jo get attacked by Lily Salvatore at their own party. Luckily, Jo screams out that she’s pregnant and we see the tiny bit of humanity inside Lily that stops her . . . oh and she tells Jo that she’s having twins.
‘Til Death Do Us Part
“Damon did a vampire version of a marriage proposal and you left.” Yup, that pretty much explains Damon (Ian Somerhalder) offering to take the cure with Elena. However, he has a plan to get her to discuss it.
He brings Elena back to her old house (in her mind, of course), and brings the cure along. He confesses to her that he’s ready to be human with her because he’s so in love — “’til death do us part.” With that, she downs it. Just like that, her memories all come rushing back, and even shows us their first date together where she apparently doesn’t know how to pronounce parmesan.
However, she also remembers asking Damon to take the cure years ago — when he walked away (season four).
Naturally, this turns into a fight because Damon wants to change now to be with her. The only way she’ll let this happen is after he thinks more about it — and lets the family try to talk him out of it.
Welcome Back, Kai
So Elena’s human again, Lily’s trying to kill her, but luckily is locked in the Salvatore dungeon (for now). However, we’ve got a feeling she’ll get her “family” back soon. The episode ended with the return of Kai (Christopher Wood), calling in all the creepy supernatural creatures, and telling them all it’s time to leave.
Alright HollywoodLifers, do you think Damon will become human?
