Caroline Forbes, on the other hand, thinks this is a “huge mistake” and likens the heretics to “supernatural terrorists.” She is quickly proven correct.

“Mystic Falls is ours now,” we overhear one heretic say. “So is any human who steps foot inside of it.” What follows next is a series of horrifying scenes of the heretics taking over and doing whatever they want, and we then hear Lily indicate this deal has been broken.


“If I may offer you some motherly advice... run,” Lily tells Stefan.

After this line, mayhem ensues. We see Stefan kissing someone (that looks like Caroline but might not be her), Matt Donovan on fire, and Stefan ask how he can make a bomb. Yes, a bomb. Looks like the struggle to stay alive is harder than ever for our heroes.


What does Damon Salvatore think about all of this mess? He’s wondering how long they’ve got until “this evil engulfs the world.” We’re officially worried!
