In present time, Bonnie takes out her letter and thinks about opening it. In the cellar, Rayna is trying to sort out where her victims are. Damon offers to help kill her newly alive victims. She denies the help, but Enzo and Damon make a compelling argument. She wants to do a trial run first.

Two and a half years ago, Bonnie shows Enzo a picture of the twins. She has blue prints of the Armory lower levels. Enzo sees Bonnie’s letter from Damon and asks why she hasn’t burnt it yet. She said she changed her mind, then he tells her he understands how she feels.

They’re heading to Richmond, Virginia to a Dentist office. Damon finds the vampire feeding and he and Enzo team up to try to take him down. Bonnie shoots him a few times but Damon ends up killing him by using a wet floor sign and slicing off his head.

One and a half years ago, Bonnie and  Damon are jamming on New Years Eve. Enzo tells Bonnie to get dressed. While she was changing, Enzo decorated the whole place with lights, had wine waiting and a fantastic dinner for them. They talk about Enzo’s Family. Enzo asks her to dance, Bonnie acts like its corny but agrees to dance. She tries to talk to Enzo about his families journals but Enzo has other plans. He doesn’t want to talk about their troubles. Just as things get a little intense, he says he has to go.

In present time, Ric and Stefan are at the bar and Damon keeps calling Stefan. Stefan keeps ignoring Damon’s calls. Ric gets blunt and asks Stefan why he disappeared and didn’t even have the guts to tell Caroline. He tells Stefan that he broke Caroline’s heart. Stefan answers Damon’s call, and Damon asks for help. Damon tells him that Bonnie needs help and Stefan reluctantly agrees to help.
