  • Antagonists: Cade and Kai.
  • This is the second episode in which Stefan is human.
  • This episode revealed that it has been 3 days since Matt rung the Maxwell Bell 11 times in Nostalgia's a Bitch when Cade left his world and at the same so did Kai. That 2 days have past since Enzo was killed by Stefan and Bonnie injecting with Elena's cured filled blood making him human again.
  • It's revealed that vampires who are cured, anyone they ever compelled begins to wear off of them. Meaning anyone compelled by Katherine (i.e. the entire town of Willoughby, PA), Elena and Stefan would've remembered everything they were compelled to forget or do.
  • Kai tells Damon and Alaric if they help get completely out of Hell that he'll help them kill Cade. To keep Ric from killing him and sending back to Hell, Kai says he'll wake up Elena for him.
  • Cade reveals to Bonnie that her scream full of anguish and rage for Enzo's death created a psychic dimension like Cade's, and that Enzo's soul is there.
  • Damon takes Kai to the Salvatore crypt where Elena's casket has been moved back to from upstate New York so that he can wake up Elena. Instead Kai betrays Damon by siphoning the magic of his vampirism, taking both Elena's casket and the weapon that can kill Cade.
