[[Stefan Salvatore|Stefan]] and Damon start arguing about how Damon was using Oscar to get back and that the way Stefan sees it, that Elena was in more trouble than ever because of Damon. Damon accuses of Stefan of being on Lily's side, to which Stefan responds that because Damon can't be with Elena, he makes all of his bad decisions about her. The scene ends with Damon telling Stefan that he needs to get rid of Oscar's body and Stefan tells him that he has to get rid of it.

[[Lorenzo|Enzo]] walks in to Valerie making mushroom omelettes for Oscar because he was supposed to be returning home that day. Lily walks in, telling them that Damon never showed up with Oscar, and asks Enzo for a moment alone with Valerie. Lily tells Valerie that she found out about [[Stefan and Valerie]] in 1863. Valerie defends herself and Stefan stating that it was puppy love and that they were just children and that it meant nothing. She also tells Lily that she didn't want to tell her because she was fragile at the time. Lily asks why Valerie put Stefan through thinking that she was going to come back for him. Valerie apologizes and tells Lily that there's nothing more that she's holding back. Valerie turns to leave claiming that she needs to look for Oscar, to which Lily tells her that it wouldn't be necessary.

[[Nora Hildegard|Nora]] and [[Mary Louise]] go to the university in which Stefan and Damon are to ask for Oscar back, while they're moving his body. Mary Louise asks for Oscar back and Damon tells her that he just left. Damon tells Nora that he's been binging hence the reason he smells like blood. She walks around breaking things until Damon changes his story, saying that Oscar knocked him out and took off and that he lost his bargaining chip. Mary Louise asks why Oscar hadn't been answering the phone, while in the background you see Nora walking toward the bathroom. The music gets suspenseful and Stefan looks and when he glances forward again he looks worried. Nora opens the bathroom door and she finds nothing. Aggravated, she turns around and asks why she doesn't believe him. The girls leave and it's revealed that they hung Oscar's body out the window. They bring his body in and put it on the couch. Behind them, a girl walks into the room with a letter from Nora saying "For every hour that Oscar isn't returned, a [[Whitmore College|Whitmore]] student will die starting now." Abruptly the student stabs herself in the neck.}}

Trivia

  • Stefan reveals that it has been 4 months since the events of I'm Thinking Of You All The While.
  • Bonnie resurrects two unknown characters by placing them both in Oscar and Jo's corpses with the help of the Phoenix Stone. They are also the first supernatural characters brought back to life since the Other Side ceased to exist at the end of Season 5.
  • The 2016 flash forward shows Alaric and Jo's twins.
  • The Phoenix Stone is Native American in origin according to Bonnie as she's telling Caroline it's a little sketchy as she plans on talking Alaric out of bringing back Jo with it.
  • The shown side effect of the Phoenix Stone on bringing back a vampire, Oscar, is a ravenous thirst for blood and even attacking those you would consider family or friend as evidenced when Oscar went after Lily as she tried talking him down after he just killed bus full of people.
  • It's revealed that Oscar has Ripper-like tendecies when he feeds but isn't one himself like Lily or her son Stefan.
  • Nora siphons the magic cast by Valerie from Caroline.
  • At first, both Nora and Mary Louise refuse to help siphon Valerie's spell on Caroline, stating how if Valerie finds out she'll do something much worse.
  • Damon, after getting Elena's body back at the ruins of the old Salvatore estate, begins writing in a journal for Elena. In his first entry it says that it'll surprise her when she wakes up. Just like his sleeping girlfriend, Damon writes that he doesn't know who he is without her, just as she wrote about Damon. He is also saying goodbye to her until she wakes.
  • Tyler takes possession of Elena's casket, which eventually ends up in 2016 Brooklyn, at Damon's request to remove it from Mystic Falls to both to keep her safe but keep himself out of danger protecting her. This after talking with Lily.

Behind the Scenes

  • Filming began on August 23, 2015.
  • Julie Plec says this episode is the show's Halloween episode.
  • This episode had about 1.24 million viewers in the USA.
  • Welcome back, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe! Sort of. I can’t say that spending 11 hours lying dead on a morgue table is the best way to spend the day, but it sure was nice to have her around again. Last season, I accidentally told Jodi of her pending demise as though she already knew it was happening. She didn’t. That was awkward. Jodi is the queen of Bananagrams, and has repeatedly kicked my ass in my own home. Her death had nothing to do with her Bananagrams skills, I swear.
  • This episode cements my love for Enzo’s new hair. Michael Malarkey has a bit of a punk-rock history and last season someone thought it would be fun to play with a faux-hawk for Enzo’s character. I wasn’t a fan. A clever blogger, likely Price Peterson, called it the Sonic the Hedgehog ‘do and I could never look at it the same again. In season 2, Tyler Lockwood showed up in a faux-hawk once his werewolf curse was triggered — because, you know, once you let your wolf out you should absolutely change your hairstyle right away — and Kevin [Williamson] nearly lost his mind. This was nothing compared to the meltdown I had had earlier in the season when Caroline Forbes, less than 12 hours after having been turned into a vampire, inexplicably started wearing thick black bad-girl eyeliner. It’s the little things that will drive you crazy in this job.
  • In his diary entry to Elena, Damon’s perspective on wine was inspired by a conversation that Ian [Somerhalder] had with Caroline Dries over Damon’s hobbies. Having consumed wine with Ian, I can attest to his eye for quality.

Professor: "Any questions before the final stop on our tour?"

Caroline: "Mmm hmmm..."
Bonnie: "I didn't want to wake you."
Caroline: "Well, I would lose more sleep if you just snuck out without saying hi!"
Bonnie: "Hi!"
Caroline: "Hmmm...I missed this!"
Bonnie: "Am I gonna catch fire?"
Caroline: "No! I just can't touch vampires. Valerie basically turned my skin into vervain."
Bonnie: "I'll work on unraveling the spell when I -"
Caroline: "Stop! We have so much to catch up on. Let's just go shopping for Halloween costumes and we can worry about magic later."
Bonnie: "Kind of worrying about magic already. Alaric think we can reunite Jo's spirit with her body, but he's in some sketchy need of American resurrection stone. My job is to crush his dreams in the most gentle way possible."
Caroline: "Wow! Okay...you don't think it'll even work?"
Bonnie: "I think it should. The Other Side is gone, there's no more Gemini Prison world, which means Jo's spirit...is probably in peace."
Caroline: "Our lives are weird."
Bonnie: "Tell me about it."

Valerie: "Have you done your duty to the family and found Julian yet?"
Oscar: "I found him months ago."
Valerie: "But Julian is the devil. I can't let Lily bring him back."
Damon: "Mother. Tell me you have Elena."
Lily: "Let me speak to Oscar."
Damon: "No can do. Not until I wake him up from his little vervain nap."
Mary Louise: "Where's Oscar?"
Damon: "You just missed him!"
Mary Louise (to Nora): "Come Nora."
Stefan (to Caroline): "I have come up with the genius plan to keep them occupied while Damon sorts out his Oscar problem."
Nora: "What's this?"
Caroline: "Just some silly Heaven and Hell Ball."
Nora: "We're going!"
Damon (to Bonnie and Alaric): "We gotta bring this guy back to life. Now."
