Damon Salvatore and Stefan Salvatore team up against Cade in The Vampire Diaries season 8 episode 14. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 13.
The Vampire Diaries season 8 episode 14 opens with Damon’s body lying on the floor. His spirit is still standing and Cade explains to him that he’s “in the space in between worlds.”
Stefan finds Kai Parker in a bar and asks him for the dagger that’s capable of killing Cade. Kai stabs Stefan with the dagger. Damon comes up behind Kai and snaps his neck.
Caroline Forbes talks to Alaric Saltzman about their children. It turns out, they were kicked out of their pre-school because of their magic.
Damon tells Stefan not to kill Cade, saying it’s suicide. Damon tries to stop him, but Stefan injects his neck with vervain.
Caroline tucks her daughters into bed. She asks them if they can stop their magic. She tells them, “Just try your best.”
When Stefan tries to kill Cade, Cade overpowers him. Damon asks him to honor their deal, since he did end up getting the dagger. Cade says he’ll give him one soul: either Stefan or Elena Gilbert.
Kai calls Alaric to tell him that he’s after his children. He takes an ax and starts chopping the kids’ bed.
Cade gives Damon the option to kill himself. After making sure that Cade won’t harm Elena in anyway, he stakes himself.
Kai searches the caves for the kids. Instead, he finds Alaric. Alaric tries to fight him, but Kai knocks him down. Caroline comes up behind him and stabs him.
Bonnie Bennett fights Cade to save Damon’s soul. Stefan shows up to join the fight and kill Cade. Bonnie tells him that this doesn’t mean she forgives him.
Stefan and Damon drink to celebrate killing Cade. Damon tells Stefan that leaving Mystic Falls isn’t the answer to his problems.
Bonnie receives a message telling her that this isn’t over. Katherine Pierce is coming for them.
