Hey, before you go rushing off, there's something you should probably know. I compelled what's-his-name. Who's with, uh, you know, your boyfriend, curly-hair? Lando. There it is. That's thanks to you. As we sit here chatting, they're headed east, away from the school, into the woods, walking straight into the path of a golden arrow. [...] I guess we'll find out if that prophecy's really true. Oh, you can stop doing the math in your head. You'll never make it to both places in time.
Kai to Hope

Guest Cast




  • Antagonist: Malachai Parker, Alyssa Chang, Diego, The Necromancer (indirectly), Malivore (indirectly)
  • Josie, using dark magic, forces Jade's humanity back.
    • With her humanity back, Jade helps Alaric save Lizzie's life by instructing him on what he needed to do as she was training as an EMT when she was sixteen.
  • To escape the 2018 Prison World, Josie created doors within the world by siphoning the world's magic. As a result of the spell, the world became unstable and eventually collapsed within itself.
  • Both Jed and Kaleb have feelings for Alyssa, though she has feelings for MG.
  • Landon's abilities expands and he discovers they aren't limited only to levitation and he is able to fly with flaming wings.
  • Kai betrays the Necromancer so he refuses to free, letting Alaric kill him.
  • This episode contains two continuity errors:
    • Lizzie unknowingly consumed Sebastian's vampire blood in Kai Parker Screwed Us. After her car accident, she has several cuts and gashes, one of which requires removal and surgery. Despite having vampire blood in her system, her wounds did not heal.
      • One can reason that when she siphoned Sebastian, desiccating and killing him, she could have also siphoned the magic within the vampire blood; however, that is not addressed.
    • The Necromancer refers to Malachai Parker as a Heretic, however this is false, as the Heretic's are a coven, rather than a species. It is also unlikely that the Necromancer would know of the Heretics existence. Klaus was unaware of the Heretics existence shortly after they were trapped in the Prison World, so it is unlikely the Necromancer would've been aware of them.
      • This is a further continuation of the writers not knowing the classification of the Heretics as a coven, rather than a species.
