Stefan Salvatore and Caroline Forbes quickly plan a wedding in The Vampire Diaries season 8 episode 15. For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 14.
The Vampire Diaries season 8 episode 15 opens on a sign for Founders Day. A woman walks down the street in heels, then murders a man.
Later, Caroline Forbes wakes up. Bonnie Bennett tells her, “I know we have a lot to talk about, but I don’t want to talk about that right now.”
Then, Kelly Donovan is in a bathroom. She coughs up black blood. When a woman enters the room, Kelly kills her.
Caroline gets home and discovers that Damon Salvatore got Stefan drunk. He tells her that the impromptu wedding needed an impromptu bachelor party.
Later, Caroline talks to Damon. She’s sad that Bonnie, Elena Gilbert and her daughters will all miss her wedding. Damon gives her Elena’s necklace. He tells her that he wants it back so it’s “something borrowed.”
Caroline opens a gift from Bonnie. It’s a golden headband and a broach.
Kelly sits in the crowd at Caroline’s wedding. She gets a text from an unknown number that reads “game on.”
Caroline smalls at Stefan as she walks down the aisle. Her children walk behind her and Bonnie is in attendance.
Caroline and Stefan expect Katherine Pierce to interrupt the wedding and object. But, instead they both get through their vows. Damon declares them married and they kiss.
After the ceremony, Caroline and Stefan dance. At the same time, Damon and Bonnie dance.
Kelly shows up and announces that she caused a gas leak back at the house, where Caroline’s daughters and Bonnie are. Caroline runs to save them, but an explosion goes off just as she gets there.
Caroline sobs as she watches the house burn. Inside, Bonnie assures the girls that they’re okay and to keep doing what they’re doing. They’re keeping her alive, but siphening her magic to do it.
At the end of the episode, Stefan finds Bonnie alive but in bad shape. She collapses.
