The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 19 Recap: “Because”


With the success of Lily triggering Stefan (Paul Wesley) back to humanity, Stefan creates a plan to get Caroline (Candice Accola) to switch as well. Considering she does not know he is his normal self again, he will try to convince her that he is still in ripping mode. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) will step in as well, pretending to put the two of them on a vampire lock down, as they have done so in the past. Photo: CW

When Bonnie (Kat Graham) is informed of the ascendant being in the hands of Lily (Annie Wersching), she asks Matt (Zack Roerig) to stall her at the mystic grill in order for her to search for it. While she is being stood up, Lily runs into Enzo (Michael Malarkey). He has spent decades dreaming of this moment to, in fact, be told that Lily had never intentionally abandoned him. When she killed several innocents to help feed a newly turned Enzo, she was soon taken by the Gemini coven (to which she was sent to a prison world).


Holding a grudge for that long to discover it was unnecessary can be a bit overwhelming. Elena tries to trigger Caroline back by handing her letter her mother had written to her just before she passed. Stefan almost blows his cover by persuading Caroline to reconsider burning it. Unfortunately, she burns it anyway. When Lily discovers that the ascendant is missing, she immediately goes into ripper mode. She threatened Damon by telling him if he does not return he asdent she will destroy the cure for vampirism. Damon catches up to Bonnie to get back the ascendant, but she is in the middle of a spell to destroy it. Damon pleads with her, insuring that Kai will no longer be a threat to her. In full rage, Bonnie informs Damon that the ascendant has nothing to do with Kai (Chris Wood), but has everything to do with preventing her from dying all over again. She also points out that the only reason Damon wants the ascendant back is for selfish reasons.


Caroline puts two and two together and calls out Stefan for lying this entire time. Once she discovers she has been betrayed, she wants nothing more than to kill Stefan for trying to turn her back. Stefan uses his lack trick and infiltrates memories of her mother in her head. When Lily receives the news that Damon has failed to get back the ascendant, she leaves the cure for Elena to find. According to her, burning it would be too easy. But making the decision for him would take away what he truly wants, which is keeping her forever.


However, the joke is on her when Damon tells Elena that not only is she going to take this cure, he is going to take it with her. Enzo rushes to Lily’s aid when she finds herself back into her ripper ways again. Caroline is devastated of what she has done while her humanity was turned off. She also worries that she’s ruined any chance she ever had with Stefan.
