That said, according to what Kai (Chris Wood) tells Damon (Ian Somerhalder) in a new preview clip from “The Downward Spiral,” our hunch is correct. Unfortunately for Damon though, this isn’t good news. Why? Because it means his mother abandoned her sons when they needed her the most, and never bothered to contact them after they turned! “Whatever, whoever is on that tape is not her. I know my mother. She is not a vampire. She is not in a prison world. She died of consumption in 1858,” he says, clearly in denial. He even goes as far as to dig up his mom’s coffin just to prove his point!
We don’t know about you but the TVD mid-season finale left us with so many burning questions: Will Enzo kill Matt? Will Bonnie ever escape the May 1994 prison world? Why did Kai abduct Elena and what does he plan on doing to her? Also, will the real Sarah Salvatore please stand up? Thankfully many of these will be answered in The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 11!
And we’re not exaggerating when we say that the Paul Wesley-directed installment is packed with loads of tension and supernatural drama. For starters, we’re finally going to meet the niece Stefan has been tending to from afar; he even attends her photography show by the looks of it in the CW’s preview trailer! (Do note we’re just assuming that’s her because she kind of resembles Monique. Also, Stefan keeps looking at her in a way that indicates she’s our national treasure.) There’s only one problem: Enzo, who once again managed to avoid a narrow brush with death in Tripp’s murder van, actually follows him to his great grand-niece’s campus.
Mmm! Do you smell all the delicious holiday spirit permeating through the air? Egg nog and holly and candy cane dreams…oh my! And there just so happens to be a sprig of mistletoe conveniently hanging over the Salvatore Boarding House doorway? How perfect! Unfortunately all the beautiful traditions and Mystic Falls flashbacks featuring Elena, Bonnie, and Caroline as a trio of ordinary giddy schoolgirls (who, by the way, are blissfully unaware that their lives will soon be torn asunder by good-looking bloodsuckers) will be marred by three things: a. Stefan delivering devastating news to Care Bear, b. Enzo forcing Matt to help him “deplete every ounce of happiness from Stefan’s life, and c. Kai continuing his messy ritual of killing “friends” and family members during annual celebrations.
If Malachi Parker hasn’t already been placed on Santa’s naughty list, his behavior in The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 10 certainly will earn him a prime spot. According to the extended preview trailer, Kai not only stabs his own sister Jo inside a dingy crypt and then tries to siphon Liv’s magic (again), but he also targets Elena and knocks her out with a crowbar. Honestly, he needs to take a chill pill, kick his feet up, and indulge in a gourmet hot chocolate beverage — you know, in place of MURDER AND TORTURE.
What else is going on in Mystic Falls? Well, a handful of characters appear to be lingering at the local hospital so that’s a pretty alarming sign. Not only that, but they have tears in their eyes and are hugging it out hardcore which can only mean one thing: One of our precious endangered species – humans! — is in mortal danger. Ay yi yi. Let’s just hope Enzo kept his neck-snapping hands off the “blond bowl of mush known as Matt Donovan.” Oh, and to add salt to injury, Bonnie is spending Christmas alone. Something about a winter holiday in May just doesn’t seem fun. Poor girl. #BringBonBonHome!
Anyway, enough of our semi-freaking out. Catch all the misery and near fatal attacks in the official promo video for “Christmas Through Your Eyes” below! Then drop us a comment telling us what you’d love to put in Kai’s stocking this year.
