The Vampire Diaries s06e10 Episode Script

Christmas Through Your Eyes

Previously on "The Vampire Diaries" - What about Bonnie? - She sacrificed herself so I could come back.
She's all alone I'm sorry I compelled away the memories.
We'll make new ones.
I hate you for ruining our friendship, and I think that I deserve better than that.
Enzo, let her go, or I swear No! How do you feel about being a hunter again? Why? Because I want you to help me kill Enzo.
- Get the ascendant from Jo.
- I understand.
Damon is a vampire.
Are you saying Damon compelled me? He wouldn't do that.
He's my friend.
Jo drove me across the border.
Look, Ric.
My coven put Kai in a prison world.
- Kai? - As in our brother, my twin.
In our coven's tradition, the twins merge their strength.
The stronger one wins, absorbing their twin's power.
- The weaker one dies.
- I'm not gonna let you die.
Kai is here.
I guess this is that, uh, antimagic border, which means now there's a psycho loose in Mystic Falls and no vampires around to stop him.
What the hell do you want? Feel like making a deal with the devil? How much are you gonna want to kill me - if I need to rain check tonight? - What happened? I have a possible 480 hit-and-run on campus, one DOA, 4 reds en route.
Have your previous boyfriends understood this language you speak? I'm gonna miss dinner so you're my boyfriend now? There's no hospital code for awkward silence.
Give me two hours.
Save me dinner.
Doctor, we have a young female with abdominal wounds.
Put her in t3.
I need 10 milligrams of morphine.
Mine's conscious.
See a lot of blood, no broken bones.
Making any sense to you? No, it's not.
What happened to you? Were you hit by a car? I can't breathe.
It's ok.
You can tell me what really happened.
Sweetheart? Look at me.
What happened to you? Aah! I stabbed her.
Aah! Aah! Unh! Sorry.
Had to.
You know you just declared war, right? Come on.
Caroline's over there.
Aah! Come on.
I'm not noticing you.
Today's not may 10, 1994.
Today's the tree decorating ceremony, and you are not telling me otherwise.
I just figured that we were skipping Christmas this year, you know, considering the part where I die if I cross the border into my hometown.
What happened to Christmas being your favorite time of the year? Was my favorite time of year when I could actually live in my own house and help decorate the town tree and drink hot cocoa with my friends.
What are you doing? You're supposed to be at the Mystic Falls tree decorating ceremony.
I'm playing hooky this year.
I figure just because you can't come home for the holidays doesn't mean the holidays can't come to you.
You even brought our favorite ornaments.
Mom! Hey.
I, uh, didn't know which ones to get, so I got both.
What are you doing here? Your mom needed Christmas lights.
You have a huge dorm, and I thought we could use an extra set of hands.
The little ones obviously.
Are you watching me sleep? No.
I'm watching you drool all over Ric's textbooks, and considering you're already on his bad side I don't drool.
What time is it? Time for Ric to get a new reference library.
We've been looking all night.
I swear I haven't found anything that even remotely resembles an ascendant.
Well, we haven't looked hard enough.
Let's get to it.
- Find anything yet? - Nope.
Still staring.
It's just Everything you've been doing for Bonnie.
Thank you.
She'd do it for us.
Hello, Ric.
- Have you seen Jo? - No, not since yesterday.
Why? So I asked around the hospital.
No one's seen Jo since last night at the er.
A bunch of stab victims came in, and one of them's missing, as well.
It was Kai.
Jo knew he'd come after her, and he did.
Not to give you boyfriend lessons or anything, but if you knew Jo's whackjob brother was out on the loose and after her, don't you think that keeping an eye on her would have been a smart move? And what would you have had me do, Damon, ask you to compel Jo to stay put? Guys, if Kai has Jo, we need a plan.
Plan's easy.
Find Kai, fftt, kill Kai.
Bottom line, we need to keep Kai alive.
You think I'm gonna protect the guy who chased us around the house with a baseball bat when we were 4? Luke's right, Tyler.
You're on some serious crack.
Right now, you two are stuck doing the twin-merge for your coven, ok? That means one lives, one dies, but if we help Kai and he finds a way to merge with Jo, it's not your problem anymore.
Until Kai becomes the most powerful witch in our coven and goes on a killing spree.
Something tells me that's gonna become our problem.
What does he want us to do exactly? Just think sociopathic Ryan Reynolds.
Haven't seen him.
Grunge vibe, annoying as hell.
Still no idea.
Well, if he has half a brain, he will be hiding where vampires can't find him.
So in between levels of Mario Kart, can you and little baby Gilbert maybe keep an eye out? Yeah, got it.
If we see him, we'll let you know.
Who was that? It was Damon.
Apparently, there's a psychopath roaming Mystic Falls.
You tell him we're busy hunting down a psychopath roaming outside Mystic Falls? Must have forgot to mention it.
You better get out of here.
Enzo's gonna be here soon.
Let's kill a vampire.
Well, Bevis and Butthead are on the lookout.
Anyone else brimming with confidence? I mean, this just doesn't make sense.
What could possibly not make sense about magical twins absorbing into one another.
Jo needs her magic for the merge to work, ok, and she got rid of that back in 1994.
Kai said Jo hid her magic in a knife somewhere.
It's probably back in Portland, where she got rid of it in 1994.
He checked.
The knife's not there.
He thinks someone took it.
Jo doesn't have magic because it's stuffed in a knife that was stolen and hidden by yours truly.
Kai won't find it.
Yeah, unless Kai does a locator spell.
- It's impossible.
- Why? Kai was born without the ability to do magic.
Let me guess.
Kai wants us to do a locator spell on the knife.
If we find it, Jo can get her magic back, Kai can merge with her, and you and Luke live.
This is ridiculous.
This is our job.
Merging is our duty to the coven.
It's why we were born.
We were born because our coven decided that Jo wasn't strong enough to beat Kai.
Why should we have to die because our sister's too weak to defeat our psychopath of a brother? You know, a month ago, the thought of bowing out never even occurred to you.
That's because Kai wasn't here a month ago, but he's here now.
Luke, we don't have to do this.
We have a chance to live out normal, human lives.
We could actually be happy.
If the only way to restore Jo's magic is to reunite her with that knife, Kai's gonna come for it.
Ric's right.
Even if Kai can't do the locator spell, he's gonna make it his mission to find it.
Kai finds it.
Love it.
Why aren't you more concerned? Because if Kai goes for the knife, I will kill him because the knife is right here where I hid it.
Ta-da! I know I tried to kill you when you were toddlers, but I got to say, it sure is nice to be around family for the holidays.
Dad's not here yet.
Oh, yeah.
You know what? He's not gonna make it.
You remember his friend Steven? He needed help moving a couch or something, so he's gonna miss out.
But it's an undeclared law that the sheriff and her husband put the star on the tree.
Then we will just have to let the Lockwoods have the honors this year.
Is something going on between you two? It'll be fine, I promise.
Mom, I'm a freshman in High School, ok? I can handle adult conversations.
No worrying during the holidays, ok? And that tree is not gonna decorate itself.
Well, maybe you'll meet a cute surfer.
My dad's conference is two hours away from any beach.
Ahh! Cute surfer? Where? Nowhere.
Bonnie's dad is dragging her on a work trip, so I'm gonna ask my parents if she can spend the holiday with us.
Are you serious? Yeah.
The 3 of us have never spent Christmas apart.
I plan on keeping it that way, even though Jeremy will hate it.
It's always fun to torture him.
Oh! I love you.
Almost as much as I love torturing Jeremy.
Ok, great! Now that Christmas is saved, let's get these garlands on the tree before they end up on your hips.
I got it.
What are you doing here? Well, your mom asked for my help.
No, Stefan.
What are you doing here? Because if you think hanging a few stands of light is gonna make me forget what a crappy friend you've been, then you thought wrong.
- Caroline, I'm trying, ok? - You're trying? No.
This is the easy part, ok? We're hanging Christmas lights.
Anyone can be friends when you're hanging Christmas lights.
Who wants hot chocolate? I was just leaving.
Mom?! Oh, wow.
I just got really Mom! You ok? What the hell is he doing? Probably playing tic-tac-toe with himself like a crazy person.
This is the antimagic border.
Jo can get her magic back over there while over here Hey.
What did you do to me? Sissy's up.
What the hell did you do to me? I haven't seen you in 18 years.
You can't muster a hello? What did you guys do? What you should have done 18 years ago.
It's not gonna work Kai.
I don't have my Magic.
I recall.
You stored it in this.
Aah! What the hell? Ohh! I'm trying to reunite Jo with her Aah! Magic.
It's not working.
Enough, enough, man.
I was wanting to kill you when your brain was the size of an acorn.
You don't think I'll do it now? Whatever.
I'm not watching this.
Ha ha ha! Oh, so dramatic.
All right.
Sissy Let's try this again.
I put my magic in there by choice.
Taking it back is also my choice unless I bleed to death, which will happen in the next 30 minutes.
Wouldn't it be ironic if you accidentally killed me before the merge ceremony? I'm going to find a bandage while you figure out how to put the magic in this knife into our sister.
Preferably by the time I get back so I don't have to dull it by slitting your throat.
- Hey! - Hey.
What happened? I don't know.
She just collapsed.
One second, we're decorating, and then the next, she's just on the ground.
Maybe she forgot to eat.
You know, sometimes, she skips breakfast.
And when was the last time you ate, Caroline, as in fed? Oh, God.
Now you sound like Stefan.
He just went to go find something to take the edge off.
They have her sedated.
She's going to be asleep for a while.
Can you just come and distract me? How's the search for the new ascendant thingy? Not good.
Damon and I spent the night researching.
Poor Bonnie.
Do you think she knows it's Christmas? You know she never liked being away from us at Christmas.
I don't know.
It's probably better that she doesn't know, though.
So are you and Damon I know what you're thinking, and no.
Actually, I was going to say that I think it's great how he's always been there for you when it mattered, you know, through thick and thin, good times and bad times.
Maybe I haven't given him enough credit.
You're clearly malnourished.
Bet you think you're pretty clever, don't you? Is this Damon? Why don't I have your number saved? Well, you weren't in your dorm room, and your pouty little goth friend wasn't in hers.
It's creepy you know where Liv's dorm room is.
Let me guess.
You 3 idiots figured that Kai merging with Jo benefits you and Liv.
Now I'm not sure exactly how Luke fits into that yet, but I'll use my imagination.
I'm trying to keep my girlfriend alive.
Sound familiar? We both knew that wasn't gonna work.
Where's Jo? I'm not telling you, and before you threaten to rip my head off, remember, all that does is guarantee Kai having to merge with Jo.
Is that what you people think of me, that I just instantly resort to violence? I just have a question.
I mean, look.
I get why you don't want to merge with Liv, ok, because no one wants to see that face with her hair.
I get it, but what makes you think Kai merging with Jo is any smarter? I mean, I heard he killed and that was without magic.
Eh, it'll be fine.
I'm sure when Kai gets all that power he's just gonna mellow right on out.
And here I thought we were meeting for tea and crumpets.
I'm giving you information about a girl who's supposed to be Stefan's long lost niece.
I'm not exactly interested in him finding out.
And why are you helping me? I thought you unfriended me when I killed that little con artist.
Her name was Monique.
Eh, two names actually First Sarah, then Monique, probably others.
I asked you why you're helping me.
She knew something that Stefan didn't want her to know, and for some screwed up reason, you're obsessed with knowing Stefan's secrets.
Probably because he has everything you'll never have.
Answer the bloody question.
Why are you helping me? Because I want this obsession to take you the hell away from here.
This is all the information Monique told me about her past.
Take it and get out.
Heh heh.
Think I didn't plan for that? Agh! Caroline could really use whatever's in that cup.
Is it just me, or does that look really bad for somebody who just fainted? That doctor just came over from radiology.
I overheard her say glioblastoma.
Glioblastoma? No, but that no.
No, no.
We brought her in a couple of weeks ago after Tripp's guys grabbed here.
Doctors ran some tests, and apparently they found something suspicious.
No, but that doesn't make sense, Stefan.
Caroline would have said something.
Or maybe her mom hasn't told her yet.
What's going on with Liz Forbes? Her recent MRI showed a lesion on her brainstem.
We think it's metastasized to her spine.
C-c-can you operate? If the tumor's already spread, it would be impossible.
But that would mean Does she know? For a few weeks now, but news like this takes time to digest.
Wou wn't it be a billion times easier just to stake him in the heart? Yeah, but he wouldn't suffer.
Get the door.
This isn't about making him suffer.
It's about making sure he doesn't kill anyone else.
He just killed an innocent girl, Jer.
He deserves to suffer.
Dude, you sound like Tripp.
You mean the guy whose neck Enzo slit open for trying to protect innocent people? I'm just saying you're being a little intense.
Maybe that's the problem, Jer.
We've all been looking the other way because we're friends with vampires, but how many people need to die for us to face the fact that vampires also kill people? So what, you'd do the same thing to Stefan? What about Elena or Caroline? Just help me get him to the van.
I know how you feel.
I was supernaturally programmed to take out my sister, remember, but this whole us versus them thing is gonna drive you crazy, and it's gonna get you killed.
It will be ok.
Just needed to get rid of Kai so you could free me.
Look, Jo.
You can't run away from this anymore.
You've had 18 years of freedom.
Now take your magic back and do this.
You owe it to the coven.
Is that what you think, that I've been shirking my responsibility to our family? Luke's all I've got.
If we merge and he dies I may as well be dead, too.
If Kai merges with me, he'll be more powerful than any of us.
Did it ever occur to you that maybe you're strong enough to beat him? You were 22 the last time you went up against him.
Since then, you've been a combat medic, you've saved hundreds of lives, and your hospital worships you.
Someone's done her research.
You're my sister, and I'm yours.
Look how far you've come without magic.
You didn't get here listening to people tell you you weren't strong enough.
- Aah! - Liv! Can't say I didn't warn her.
Phesmatos superous em animi Aah! Kai, stop! Isn't it gonna be funny when I kill her using her own magic? Wait.
Is that funny or sad? I get my emotions mixed up.
What's the one for fire again? It's "incendia," right? Phesmatos Kai, enough! Lectos espiritox.
That's it? We're gonna kill bad guys together, and you're not gonna talk to me? Look.
You blew up your car, you needed a ride.
Doesn't mean we have to talk.
All right.
I agree that maybe compelling you to betray your lady friend was an irrational decision stemming from untreated control issues.
- Heh.
- What? I'm sorry, Ric.
Is that it? Yeah.
Let's finish this.
There it is.
Oh, so predictable.
I threaten Liv, you do anything it takes to save Liv.
Unh! Cemetery, really? Motus.
Aah! Ugh.
Oh, whoops.
Looks like you found the antimagic border.
Drew a line in the dirt for everyone's convenience.
See? Yeah.
You're welcome.
Thank you.
Kill him.
Alaric, don't! What are you talking about? She's lightheaded and confused.
I'll give her some of my blood, ok? Kill him.
No, you can't.
If Kai dies, Liv and Luke have to do the merge.
It's not fair to them.
Who cares? Kill him.
Ric, don't.
I can win.
I can beat Kai.
I just need a little time to get stronger.
We're moved truly.
Kill him now.
I'll figure out a way to win.
Please you have to trust me.
Keep him alive.
Why the hell did you tell Damon where they were? Because I realized listening to you two was a huge mistake.
Kai's a monster.
So you'll just risk your sister's life? How the hell does that make sense? Hey! I'm talking to you.
Everyone, chill! Jo thinks she can beat Kai.
You and I both know that's crap.
Kai's a million times stronger.
She'll die, and the first thing Kai's gonna do is kill everyone in our coven as punishment for putting him away, and then he'll turn on innocent people because he's crazy and bored and homicidal.
Then I'm selfish, Luke, but I'd rather be alive and selfish than this dead martyr who served her purpose to her coven.
People are gonna die, and it's gonna be our fault.
Remember that.
Are you ok? There's a 22-year-old sociopathic witch running around Mystic Falls right now.
That we have a plan for.
We've dealt with every kind of evil there is, and we always have a plan, but this If Caroline loses her mom, - it'll destroy her.
- I know.
She doesn't deserve this, Elena.
She's a good person.
- She's happy, she's kind.
- I know.
I should tell her.
It's only a matter of time before she compels a doctor, and I don't want her finding out from a stranger, you know? Let me do it.
No, Stefan.
You don't have to.
Let Damon know.
I should tell Caroline.
I haven't been there for her.
Caroline needed me, and I ran away.
So yeah, I have to do it.
I guess we'll just lock up your brother until you two, you know Merge our twin powers during the next celestial event? Yeah.
There really is no sugarcoating that, is there? For the record, I've dated doctors and lawyers and a couple of artist types, but none of my previous boyfriends would have ever understood that.
Let me, uh Be careful.
So this whole antimagic thing, is it like a Like a dome or a bubble? Like, say, you were in 747 flying over Mystic Falls, would you die? You know, that could be dangerous, like if you're headed to New York and your pilot reroutes for weather.
How's this? I kill you, and when you're in hell, you can ask a bar full of dead travelers, who cast the damn spell.
That's a lot of travelers.
Must be a pretty big spell.
Like a really big spell.
So big It covers every inch of an entire town.
What the hell are you doing? I'm working on my knuckleball.
We are keeping him alive, Damon.
Can I ask why we continuously compromise logic for some girl you just met? You know, I don't know how I went so long without saying this, but you're a real dick.
Bonnie's stuck over there because of him.
She's over there, and I'm over here, and I hate myself for it.
Yeah, and killing him will make you feel better, so let's just stop pretending for a second that this is about anyone else but you.
You should probably go change that tire.
Ok, tree.
Let's do this.
Now that's what I call a Christmas tree.
Isn't that gorgeous? The holidays are all about being with loves ones, and I think that's what makes this tradition so special in our town.
It's a reminder that no matter where you turn you have a friend.
Biggest mistake of junior year Including the boys in secret santa.
Stefan is officially the worst gift giver.
He got you a snow globe? Yeah, of Mystic Falls, as if I don't see enough of this town every day as it is.
Well, I love my bracelet.
Of course you do because I am good at secret santa, and I didn't purchase it from a quick stop.
Looks like someone is missing the true meaning of Christmas.
Come on.
We're happy and healthy, and we're together.
Uh, there's no news.
Apparently, they're still running tests.
Caroline, we need to talk.
Where are you? I can't hear you.
I'm at the medical center.
Where are you? Reception's horrible.
- Damon, can you hear me? - Hey.
Elena! Fancy something else? I always figured I'd bow out to the Everly brothers or He stopped talking.
He never stops talking.
Magia tollox de terras.
Utera aso utox.
What happened to his chains? Is he chanting? Utera aso utox.
Magia tollox de terras.
Utera aso utox.
It's a Christmas miracle.
You little magic sucker.
Sucked up all that magic from the traveler spell.
Aah! A lot of magic.
Gah! I really, really hate that move.
Ric! Hey.
Come on.
Take my damn hand, Ric.
Come on.
How are you not dead? If we've learned anything from today, it's that we should kill our enemies with haste.
Then what are you waiting for? Go ahead and kill me.
I said enemies.
Don't flatter yourself.
What do you want, Enzo? You were right.
I am jealous of Stefan.
He has what I want Respect, family, girls he doesn't deserve.
He throws it all away, and yet still somehow manages to come out winning.
You are going to help me deplete every ounce of happiness from his life, and when there's nothing left, I'll decide if you get to live.
Oh, and, uh, happy holidays.
You mean home home? Ahh.
Just walked through the front door, which I start locking now that Kai's supercharged and on the prowl.
Let's just celebrate the fact that we can go home.
I could really use some happy news right now.
- Today sucked.
- I'm listening.
So look.
I don't know what we were or are or what we're supposed to be, but all I know is that today was pretty horrible, and I just I want to see you.
I have something I need to tell you.
Come over.
I'll cook you dinner, and we'll talk about our crappy days.
That just doesn't make sense.
My mom would have said something to me.
We were worried, so Elena compelled one of the doctors for information.
So my mom has a brain tumor.
Then we'll just give her vampire blood.
Caroline, do you think that if our blood cured cancer we would have heard about that by now? Fine.
Then when are they gonna operate? That's the problem.
They can't.
Well, if they can't operate, then they'll give her chemo, right? The tumor is growing so fast the doctors don't think that will work.
Well, then they're wrong because they don't know her.
They don't know how strong she is.
I mean, she's gonna get through this, Stefan.
Right? It's ok.
It's all right.
We miss you, Bonnie.
I miss you guys.
That's not possible.
What? This was gone.
I blew this up.
Yeah? Well, you weren't around to annoy me for the last 4 months, so I had a bit of extra time on my hands.
Ha! Think of it as a early merry Christmas/late welcome back to life present.
Ha ha ha! Thank you.
Just, uh, do me a favor.
Don't die again.
Those fenders were a real bitch to find.
Ha! Yeah.
- Well, we're home.
- Yep.
- You sticking around? - Well, that depends.
Might have to kill Jeremy if I find out that he slept in my bed.
Anybody there? Damon, what are you doing? Are you gonna let me in or Um heh.
I may have put a cloaking spell on us.
How genius is that?
