Elena goes on her first date after losing Damon! Meanwhile, Bonnie and Damon are still trying to find a way home and they finally figure it out — but only one of them actually make it back successfully!
Our heads are still spinning after this episode of The Vampire Diaries! Tyler is in trouble after he hits a student while driving, Elena (Nina Dorbev) goes on a date with Liam — which ends in a kiss — and only Damon (Ian Somerhalder) makes it back home, leaving Bonnie still trapped in 1994!
Stefan Tries To Escape Town — Again
Stefan is left to deal with Ivy, who is now a hungry vampire. He figures that the best move is to drop her off at the dorms and have Caroline babysit her. It turns out to be a bad idea because Ivy ends up escaping and she doesn’t even know how to properly compel people yet after feeding.
Caroline calls Stefan to come help her find Ivy, only to find out that he was on his way out of town, yet again. Caroline is so hurt that Stefan is so set on leaving town, because of her feelings for him, and she tells him to just leave.
Meanwhile, Tyler gathers the courage to ask Liv out on a date, only to have her decline the offer — even though she clearly likes him. Common Liv, just give in, he is so hot and you know it.
Just like Tyler, Elena is also asking someone out on a date — Liam, her super cute classmate. Looks like someone is moving on! The two of them attend a school function at the corn maze and things get a bit awkward when Elena tells him that her ex is dead. She proceeds to say “tonight isn’t about him, it’s about you and me.” OH EM GE — did she really just say that?
While Elena is busy moving on, Tyler hits a guy with his car and then swerves into the corn maze and injures a bunch or student! Could things have escalated any quicker?
Luckily, med students, Elena and Liam, are there to help — although Elena manages to help in a different way, if you are catching our drift.
What’s worse than a bunch of injured students? Well, if one dies, then it would technically be Tyler’s fault and his werewolf gene would be activated again! Liv is there to help Tyler try to save the student that was in the worse shape. She takes one for the team and kills him so that when he died, it technically wouldn’t be Tyler’s fault. What a truly romantic gesture!
Bonnie And Damon Figure Out How To Escape — Only Damon Makes It Home
While all of this is going down, Bonnie and Damon figure out that Kai doesn’t even know the spell to get them home — so Bonnie kills him!
The light of the eclipse will activate the portal and after bonnie does a spell, they will be transported home. Everything is in place for this ritual to take place when out of nowhere, Kai comes back and shoots Bonnie with an arrow — wasn’t he just dead? Apparently he can’t die!
Damon and Kai are fighting over the gadget that they need for the ritual to get home. Bonnie knows there is no way she will make it, so when she gets ahold of the gadget, she throws it to Damon right in time for the eclipse and he is instantly gone and transported home — leaving Bonnie with Kai in 1994.
Elena Moves On And Ends Her Date With A Kiss
After they leave the hectic scene at the corn maze, Elena kisses Liam! She tells him that he was a hero by saving a life at the corn maze. “That’s my type,” she tells him. As much as it pains us to see her kissing someone besides Damon, we are kind of happy to see her in such a good place — but wait — Damon is on his way back!
At the end of the episode, Stefan goes to the crypt to talk to Damon, who he still thinks is dead. He gives a heartbreaking speech about how lost he is and just when things start to get really depressing, Damon appears! The brothers hug it out as we choke back tears — such an emotional moment! Stefan even starts to cry while hugging his big bro.
