It’s Sheriff Forbes’ funeral. Damon prepares for his eulogy while Caroline gathers up everyone to delegate tasks to ensure that the funeral goes well. Typical Caroline. Everyone’s getting ready and Stefan chose that moment to ask Damon for advice on what he should do with Caroline because they haven’t talked after the kiss. Stefan even asked Elena for advice while she was out with Caroline.
Caroline confronts Stefan but Stefan said that he wants to talk about it after the funeral. Tyler walked in, drunk so Matt didn’t let him in.
The funeral went well. Damon managed to deliver his eulogy well and Caroline sang a song for her mom. That’s when it hit Stefan how in love he is with Caroline. Another wake was held at Mystic Grill and finally, Tyler is all sober. Matt told him that he’s applying to be a deputy and he should give it a try as well.
After the wake, Caroline went home to spend time alone. It was until she finds Elena there. She tries to talk her out of turning off her emotions. Caroline told her that it’s going to be different for her, unlike the way she was when she tried to do that. Still, Elena insists so Caroline broke her neck to prove a point that she’s really determined to have her emotions switched off. Stefan got to Caroline’s only to find Elena’s limp body and Caroline nowhere to be found.

However, it’s not enough to keep Kai alive. They also found out that their coven is responsible for all the prison worlds and when Kai dies those prison worlds will collapse. Jo was left with no choice but to give Kai all of her powers. Before Kai left, he whispered “congratulations” to Jo.
