In “The Downward Spiral”, after shutting off her humanity following the death of her mother, Caroline (Candice Accola) gives her friends an unexpected ultimatum. Not knowing how to handle the new Caroline, Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) attempt to intervene sets off a dangerous chain of events, leaving him and Elena (Nina Dobrev) in a race against the clock.
Meanwhile, after seeking answers from Kai (Chris Wood) about the prison world, Damon’s (Somerhalder) world is turned upside when he learns some devastating news about his mother Lily (Annie Wersching).
Elsewhere, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) finds himself becoming increasingly intrigued by Sarah Salvatore (Tristan Mays), and Bonnie (Kat Graham) begins to struggle with the effects of being back in the real world.
