‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 5 Episode 14 Recap: No Exit


Free from Dr. Wes’ (Shaun Sipos) laboratory, Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) hide out in an old farm house. Careful to prevent himself from being Damon’s next meal, Enzo monitors each time Damon needs to feed. Since Damon has been infected with the ripper virus, the only way he can survive is to kill and turn innocent humans.

Nadia (Olga Fonda) remains to hold Matt (Zach Roerig) prisoner where she compels him for information. Tyler (Michael Trevino) reaches out to Caroline (Candice Accola) hoping she may know of Matt’s whereabouts. Caroline hopes this opportunity will bring closure to their relationship. Katherine (Nina Dobrev) is determined to get closer to Stefan (Paul Wesley). She agrees to accompany him on finding Damon. Photo: CW

Wes gets his team of travelers to trap Damon and Enzo. With no other source of vampire blood, Wes tests Damon’s will to keep Enzo alive. Matt agrees to play along with Nadia’s plan, but fails to convince Caroline that he is not being compelled. Enzo decides to call Stefan, since he has no other option of saving his own life. Damon reaches his limit and attacks Enzo. He discovers that Enzo’s blood is acidic, which means Wes didn’t leave Damon to be the only vampire infected. Wes needs Enzo for one last experiment in exchange for his freedom.

Katherine continues to find more ways to seduce Stefan. Now that she knows Damon’s location, her plan is to get Stefan to kill his brother. Matt finds a way to let Nadia’s guard down by talking about a topic they have in common. It seems they both relate to having an absentee mother. What seemed like a moment of chemistry turns to trickery. Matt snatches Nadia’s phone texting Caroline for help. However, the only words he was able to get out were “Help. K”.  

Tyler later apologizes to Caroline, but is not passed his hatred for Klaus or what Caroline did to betray him. Stefan has Damon locked away in the Salvatore dungeon. Damon warns Stefan that Elena seemed out of character. He observed Katherine’s plan to kill him, but Stefan isn’t fully sure if should take Damon’s opinion. Nadia faces death due to her attack with Tyler. Since Klaus is the only person who can save her in this situation, there is a good chance she may not have survive.

Caroline and Stefan start putting the pieces together with Elena’s strange behavior. Using Matt’s text message as their final clue, the two come to realize that Elena may has actually been Katherine this entire time.
