As we countdown the days for the next The Vampire Diaries episode, here are some spoilers to tide you over until then. In episode 15 titled, Let Her Go, we had some shocking moments, especially with Caroline (Candice Accola) switching off her humanity. Thankfully we got to see Bonnie (Kat Graham) return to the present day, however, she has brought news that has rocked Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) existence. He finds out that his mother is stuck in the prison world.
Episode 16, aptly titled, The Downward Spiral will return on March 12th. According to the official synopsis, we will get to see that Caroline gives her friends an unexpected ultimatum and they won’t know how to deal with it. Stefan (Paul Wesley) is at a loss as to how to handle Caroline without her humanity. He tries to intervene, but unfortunately it backfires and sets off a dangerous chain of events, leaving him and Elena (Nina Dobrev) in a race against the clock.
While Elena and Stefan are busy trying to take care of Caroline, Damon is busy trying to get answers about his mother. He turns to Kai (Chris Wood) for information about the prison world and what Kai ends up telling him turns his entire world upside down when he finds out some devastating news about his mother.
Meanwhile, Enzo (Michael Malarkey) continues to be interested in Sarah (Tristin Mays). What is his end game with her? We will also see Bonnie struggling with being back in the present day, after-all she spent over 200 days stuck in the year 1994 and even tried to commit suicide. Will Stefan and Elena manage to get Caroline to switch her humanity back on? Will Damon find a way to get his mother out of the prison world?
