‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 5 Episode 20 Recap: “What Lies Beneath”


Damon pressures Luke to use a locator spell to find Enzo (Michael Malarkey). Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) remain mum about his death, while Tyler (Michael Trevino) finds a way to escape the travelers. Making his way back to the Salvatore manor, Tyler brings the gang up to speed on what the travelers have been up to. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) suggests they all hide out at Caroline’s cabin. Photo: CW

Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) grows weary of what could happen to Bonnie (Kat Graham) due to the recent events of the other side. To prevent any more discomfort, Bonnie lies by telling him Liv (Penelope Mitchell) is working on a spell to keep her alive. After receiving a lecture from her grandmother (Jasmine Guy), Bonnie soon discovers that the other side is even more deteriorated.  Ghost are now able to move objects while in the physical plane.

Caroline (Candice Accola) keeps a watchful eye on Elena and Stefan after they appear to show suspicious behavior. Though he made it clear he wants nothing to do with Elena, Damon apologies for Enzo almost killing her. Elena struggles to appear transparent since she is forced to keep quiet.

Markos and the rest of the travelers are on the move to catch Elena and Stefan. However, Tyler must figure out a way to keep Julian from permanently residing inside of him. Matt (Zach Roerig) and Jeremy agree to do whatever it takes to get the answers they need to find Markos.

While playing an innocent game of “Never have I ever,” Caroline’s suspicion escalates and hostility rises after she and Damon accuse the two of having a fling.

Taking a few minutes to retreat from the secrecy, Elena decides to take a bath to calm her nerves. Unfortunately to her knowledge, Enzo has other plans. Nearly drowning her, Elena still refuses to confess what she knows. After some torture and wolfsbane, Julian reveals the location of where his body lies. Jeremy and Bonnie search to find it before Markos.

Enzo’s death is accidently revealed after Stefan makes a call to Bonnie about the other side.  With no time to debate of why Stefan kept Enzo’s death a secret, they search to find Luke. Enzo uses Luke to lure Damon and Stefan inside an empty shed. Since he is now able to use any physical object, Enzo sets the shed on fire.

Damon makes a deal with Enzo. Since the other side is almost destroyed, he agrees to find a way to bring Maggie back.  The travelers beat Jeremy and Bonnie to the punch and collect Julian’s body.  They soon realize they don’t have to time to retrieve the body back. The travelers have already started the spell to make Julian permanent. Even worse news: the travelers discover the groups location to where we see Elena being captured first.
