‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 6 Episode 17 Recap: “A Bird In A Gilded Cage”


In this episode of The Vampire Diaries, Caroline’s (Candice Accola) perception of letting go is slightly different than the rest of her peers. She seems to be taking this non-humanity kick in small doses. Stefan (Paul Wesley), whom is now a ripper again, tries to push Caroline into becoming completely careless. Seems like all it took for them was to finally turn off all logic to express how the really feel about each other. Photo: CW


Alaric (Matt Davis) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) team up to capture Stefan and Caroline in order to bring them back to their senses of humanity. Although they have a differing reasons as to why they want to capture them, two is always better than one. The only risk with this is now that Alaric is going to be a father, it is important that he doesn’t die (as usual) for the sake of his unborn child.


Elena and Damon (Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder) travel back to 1903 to find Lily Salvatore (Annie Wersching). Since she is the emotional trigger to Stefan, they plan to bring her back to save him. They discover that she was turned after being sick with consumption. A nurse, (assuming she was a vampire) fed her vampire blood while in a TB ward. She faked her own death and abandoned her family, only for the fear that she posed a threat to them. Her transition into vampirism caused her to become a ripper. She also pissed off a coven of witches, sending her into a prison world for over a century.


Bonnie (Kat Graham) tags along as well, considering they need a witch to get to 1903. She isn’t entirely thrilled until she decides to use this opportunity to seek vengeance on Kai (Chris Wood) She doesn’t exactly succeed the way she would have liked, but does manage to leave him stranded with a group of hungry vampires that have been out of commission for over a century.


What will be in store for Kai and Lily?
