Ancient evil Silas is alive and hiding in someone, as turns out in Atticus, who succeeds in getting Bonnie and Caroline to complete the cycle of three dozen murders, now of witches, to restore his original sorcerer powers. Damon takes Rebekah and Elena, who almost resembles cold Katherine since he turned her emotions off, to New York, where he reminisces on his wild party days with Lexi Branson and searches for a clue, which the devious trio then fights for, but must report to Stefano he lost. Klaus ends up being confronted by Silas, who got hold of the last white oak stake. Written by KGF Vissers
