Well, I hope you have a box of tissues ready, because this episode is going to tug on your heartstrings.
At the end of last week’s episode, Sheriff Liz Forbes lost her battle with cancer and now we have to say goodbye. Caroline is dealing with it the only way she knows how; by making her lists and putting her friends to work, and Elena isn’t so sure she’s handling it or even dealing with her emotions. Let’s not forget about poor Damon who has been tasked with giving Liz’s eulogy, and struggles with being a good guy and saying the right things. Liz was his best friend, a surrogate mother, and so much more. He tries to make up for the time he wasn’t there for his own mother in her last moments.
Meanwhile, Caroline is struggling to deal with what happened between her and Stefan. The kiss. The one we’ve been waiting for for so many seasons. She wants to talk to him about what it means, not just right now, but for their future.
According to TVGuide.com, Bonnie, who found Damon’s note about Nova Scotia, returns home at the perfect time, but she’ll have to deal with the trauma of being alone for so long and figure out how to acclimate back in the real world amongst her friends.
The official synopsis for “Let Her Go”:
EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JULIE PLEC MAKES HER DIRECTORIAL DEBUT — After assigning tasks to each of her friends, Caroline (Candice Accola) attempts to deal with her current situation as reality begins to set in around her. While spending the day with Caroline, Elena (Nina Dobrev) grows concerned when she starts noticing a strange change in her behavior. Meanwhile, Alaric (Matt Davis) becomes wary when Kai (guest star Chris Wood), who has begun experiencing unexpected consequences from the merge, turns to Jo (guest star Jodi Lyn O’Keefe), desperate for her help. Elsewhere, while Bonnie (Kat Graham) finds herself in an unfamiliar situation, Matt (Zach Roerig) and Tyler (Michael Trevino) contemplate a major life change. And when Damon (Ian Somerhalder) offers Caroline advice on how to cope with everything going on around her, it forces him to revisit painful memories involving his own mother. Paul Wesley also stars.
