Main CastEdit

Recurring CastEdit


  • Based on the promo, Elena will take the Cure, but something will be wrong. Stefan tells Elena not to take the cure for some reason based on what happens to Elena in the promo. Did Lily really give Elena the real cure or a fake like Katherine gave to Rebekah in American Gothic? Did she destroy the real cure? In Because, Lily did tell her son Damon that she would take something precious, implying Elena, to him if he didn't get the Ascendant back from Bonnie.
  • In the promo, Elena ask Damon if he's ready to give up being a vampire.
  • Based on the promo, The Gilbert House has been rebuilt as this is where Elena and Damon go to take the Cure.
  • Stefan and Bonnie play devil's advocate for Damon and Elena respectively, telling them why they shouldn't take the cure.

Clip #1

Alaric (to Jo): "Don't tell me, you've bailed on your shift and you're heading here to help me grade papers."

Jo: "Awww..... you know me so well; Except for the part where I'd rather be covered in Mrs. Robinson's intestinal bile than grading term papers."

Alaric: "So I'll take that as a no."

Jo: "I just realized tonight is my last shift as a single woman. I can't wait to marry you."

Alaric: "And I am counting the days."

Jo: "Me too."

Clip #2

Caroline: "Hey! It's Caroline! But duh! You knew that because you called. So leave a message and I'll call you back. Bye!"

Stefan: "You're so happy in your voice-mail. And speaking of happy, uh... that thumping base you hear in the background, that's um... Damon's genius idea to host Ric's bachelor party, despite the fact that our mother apparently lives here now, who I've been ducking by the way in case you haven't noticed. I guess what I'm saying is call me back, otherwise I'm gonna start running out of reasons to....avoid everything that is going on my life right now. Kind of like what you're doing, which is completely understandable which is really crappy timing for me and my problems. You should be here. Come home."

Enzo (to Stefan): "Well, that was utterly adorable."

Stefan: "What are you doing in my bedroom?"

Enzo: "Well believe me, there are a number of places I'd rather be; Strapped to a gurney, having my spleen cut out for instance. Unfortunately for me, I'm here because your mother needs your help."

Stefan: "My mother?"

Enzo: "Apparently, her beloved Ascendant's been destroyed. She's in bad shape. Use a bit of your time."

Stefan: "What the hell do you know about my mother?"
