After a brief aside of Damon and Elena being cute in a completely-unfitting-to-the-scene manner, we return to the scene of destruction where the entire Gemini coven can do little more than scream and die when faced with Kai and Kai alone – and Damon tries to wake up the unconscious Elena. He tries to give her vampire blood but I don’t think that works with the cure. Among the wreckage Alaric sobs holding Jo who has completely ruined that dress with her blood.
Damon zooms Elena to the hospital and Kai breaks Caroline and Stefan’s necks to get them out of the way (the room is literally scattered with shards of broken wood – it would actually be easier to stake them than anything else).
The Gemini finally decide to do something – prison world time. Seriously, get a new trick. Like stabbing him in the head! To be fair, in this one instance it makes sense not to stab Kai since, as coven leader, killing him would kill all the Geminis (which I am totally ok with). Kai makes an attempt to explain himself – Jo’s kids would be competition for his position (expected to merge and become the next leader). And his previous attempt at redemption is hand waved – since his family decides he’s irredeemable, he’s decided he might as well be
Kai then stabs himself in the neck. Well that’s one way to get rid of a villain on the last episode of the season when you have no grand arc for them.
We have some angsty dream scenes with Elena and Alaric which I think will be a theme and a recovered Bonnie calls Damon in the hospital for some recapping. Elena’s unconscious (without any physical ailment according to the doctors), Jo is dead and Damon needs Bonnie to do something to fix it all.
Liv, along with the rest of the Geminis, is dying from dead-Kainess and Tyler has a big shard of glass in his stomach. Tyler declares how much he loves Liv and she insists that he kill her – she’s dying anyway, it’s a full moon he will heal his wounds if he turns into a werewolf. They kiss, there’s more “I love yous” back and forth – and she holds his hand over her mouth and nose. He starts shifting as he desperately calls Matt to warn all vampires to run – there’s a venomous wolf on the run.
Enzo has grabbed Caroline and Stefan for a road trip so he can add to the recaps (Kai is dead as well now – and all the Geminis are “going down with him”) and Enzo needs their help. He takes them to Lily who is looking for her witchpire friends who Kai promised he would bring back with him. Stefan points out that Kai is not the most trustworthy of fellows. Honestly Stefan, you might want to stop building up this whole mother connection, this isn’t a genepool to be proud of. But he keeps trying, keeps trying to get her to side with her son over the people she calls family. She doesn’t even hesitate.
