Caroline has lost her f*cking mind!! I thought she would be this fun vampire without her humanity but clearly I was so, so wrong. She made Liam perform open heart surgery on Sarah, or at least attempt to. She basically could give zero f*cks about what’s going on with her friends and didn’t even smile, let alone react when she realized Bonnie was back.
Speaking of Bonnie, that poor thing. She can barely handle living back in the real world with her friends again and people for that matter. She burned a guy just saying she’s hot and wanting to dance with her. The struggle is real, girl.
Let’s not forget the fact that Enzo is starting to have feelings for Sarah, which is totally weird. And by the end of it all, the only thing Caroline wants is for Stefan to turn off his humanity and come play with her. That’s it. No big deal. Except for the fact that he doesn’t have a system in place like Caroline does, to keep him in check. He turns into a freaking ripper! We all know how this could end.
Last we hear is Stefan telling Elena to bring him back. Sure. Easier said than done my friend. Remember the last time he did that?!
Meanwhile, Damon is dealing with the fact that his mother (Annie Wersching) is still alive and trapped in 1903. Damon and Elena travel back to the prison world to save her. Are you ready to meet Mama Salvatore?
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

Meanwhile, when Caroline’s (Candice Accola) plan for Stefan (Paul Wesley) backfires, she is left to pick up the pieces. Elsewhere, back at Whitmore College, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) and Alaric’s (Matt Davis) attempt to reel Caroline back in doesn’t quite go as planned when they realize they’re outmaneuvered.
