During last week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, "Bird in a Gilded Cage," a lot of changes stormed Mystic Falls with Ian Somerhalder treating us loyal fans to many twists and turns in the plot. In particular, Steroline finally discovered that turning their humanities off made them very much want to turn each other on, and Lily Salvatore escaped her 1903 prison world.
And, as it turns out, during her trip to Nova Scotia, Bonnie managed to unearth the cure for vampirism and naturally, she gave it to Damon.
The question now remains of what he is to do with it.
While I am not overjoyed with having a storyline from Season 4 pop up again (back then, everything was always about finding the cure!), I am still very intrigued as to how Damon will solve this very tricky dilemma.
Will the cure be given to Elena?
Just when Elena had finally come to terms with an existence in her ice-cold vampiric skin, perhaps it is time for Damon to attempt to convince her to become human again. As far as it stands right now though, I am not too convinced that she will be incredibly eager about making the transition.
Yet, it would also be kind of interesting to see the old Elena again, as she was back then in Season 1.
Could Lily end up taking the cure instead? Considering her volatile Ripper past, making Mama Salvatore human would ensure that she would not embark on another killing spree. For Damon, the assurance that Mystic Falls is safe stands a high priority, so he might well force his mother to take it.
In my eyes, this option seems the most logical because the chaos Lily might wreak on the town is unimaginable! Additionally, she is the only one able to bring Stefan's humanity back so she needs to be blood-lust free in order to focus on that.
But would Damon really ditch the love of his life and confirm that that son-mother bond rules supreme by saving Lily?
We will just have to wait and see how it all plays out. In the meantime, watch the episode promo here:
