After all, she and Stefan just got married earlier that night, so they’re family, too.But Alaric goes for the jugular when it comes to convincing Caroline to leave Stefan behind: “I don’t need to remind you what it’s like to lose your mother.” It’s not like he doesn’t care — Damon at one point was his only friend and Elena is his step-daughter — but he has to put his daughters first, and they need their mother. I understand.” Even after an emotional reconnection with her estranged father, Peter (Joel Gretsch), Vicki still chose to ring the bell rather than go back to Hell.
“Burn in Hell,” he tells her, before he throws out a “goodbye, brother” to Damon.
Picking up where the penultimate episode left off, “I Was Feeling Epic” begins with Stefan (Paul Wesley) attempting to resuscitate Bonnie (Kat Graham) after an especially draining bit of magic.
While Bonnie’s unconscious, she reunites with her best friend Elena (Nina Dobrev), who’s been stuck in a mystical coma since the season six finale.
Unfortunately, neither throwing her out a window nor snapping her neck incapacitates Vicki for good, and she truly is a woman on a mission — it’s either this or going back to Hell, and the prospect of no longer existing at all is so much better than going back.
So Damon puts Vicki’s brother Matt (Zach Roerig) in charge of trying to talk his big sister down.
