The smoke has cleared from the decade dance and a few people are still alive, at least. Not everyone’s out of danger, though. Someone surprising attempts to thwart Klaus (Joseph Morgan) when he kidnaps Elena (Nina Dobrev) and tries to leave Mystic Falls. Even though she’s in quite a pickle, Elena still fights to keep Caroline (Candice Accola) safe. (Maybe she dissed Klaus at the dance?)
Bonnie (Kat Graham) lures her mom, Abby (Persia), back to help with a complex spell, but she and Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) still managed to get in peril ensuring that it goes off without a hitch. (Martyr Bennett, that’s what we call her.)
Tyler (Michael Trevino) joins forces with the Salvatore brothers for a mystery project, and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) end up talking about where they see themselves in 200 years.
