|Damon and Bonnie open their eyes, and at first they do not recognize the place. But then Bonnie remembers that this is the witch house. Damon looks around and sees the other bodies, and rhetorically asks what are they doing here. Bonnie says she doesn't know.
Up in the house, Tyler looks at his back and listens to the house, and says there is someone at the basement. They look at each other, then rush there. But when they arrive, they see that it's Damon and Bonnie, and they are happily surprised. June looks at Damon for a short while, then runs to him with a big smile and hugs him with an incredible longing, while the rest of them are also cheered up.
Chris: "You guys couldn't come at a better time!"
Bonnie: "Why, what's happening."
They all look at each other, clearly thinking where to start.
Elena: (to Tatia) "What was Klaus like when he was human?"
Klaus: "Why is she asking about me?"
Stefan: "She's just trying to make a conversation."
Meredith: "Well she's leaving town with you for good, and she's trying to learn something about you."
Stefan: "You know what I'm really afraid of?"
Stefan: "Stockholm syndrome."
Klaus smiles sincerely.
Tatia: "He was the best person you could ever know. I know it doesn't sound possible, but I know him. The real him. The one that he is trying so hard to hide. We grew up together. I was almost a part of his family. But the ones I was closest to was Nik and Elijah."
Elena: (smiles barely) "It seems this thing is running in the family."
Tatia: (looks at her) "What?"
Elena: "One girl falling for two men, who usually are brothers."
Tatia: (scoffs) "But I never really loved Elijah. I mean not like I loved Nik. Elijah was like.. the kind of person that you spend your time with, so that you won't lose the other; you know? He was a good person, but Nik has always been the one for me."
Elena: "So you two were never together?"
Tatia: "No. But we both wanted. More than anything."
Elena: "Then why weren't you?"
Tatia: "My family didn't think the new people in the village would be the best choice for me. So they gave me to a wealthy man in exchange for land and protection."
Elena: "Oh my god!"
Tatia: "It was a common thing back then. But it hurt me. It hurt me so much that I just wanted to kill myself. I knew it hurt Nik too. Seeing me going to another man's home despite we loved each other so much." (Elena doesn't know what to say) "The next year I had my baby. Then one day my man sailed for fishing. But he couldn't make it back. I was widowed, and I had a baby. I was the most beautiful girl in my village but my future was gone. No man would ever want me again."
Elena: "Except Klaus and Elijah."
Tatia: (smiles) "Like I said, we grew up together. We loved each other more than anything. So they wanted to talk to me. But I was too ashamed to look at them, and I always shut the door to their faces. It went like that for almost a year."
Elena: (surprised) "They never gave up on you for a whole year?"
Tatia: "Not even for one second. They kept trying, until I had no choice but to let them in. Nik was the first one I opened to. When he walked in, we hugged each other and I cried for hours. He kept saying that it's okay, and that he'll always be there for me. But my people wouldn't take kindly of a woman who is together with someone other than her man. So we had to keep our relationship a secret."
Elena: "And Elijah?"
Tatia: (smiles) "He found out soon enough. So he started visiting me too. Nik loved the nights, so he always came at nights. But Elijah woke up earlier than everyone in the village, so that was when he came to see me. And this went on for more than a year. It was the best times of my life."
Elena: "Wait, so you were sleeping with both of them at once?"
Tatia: "No! I only loved Nik, and I never fooled myself. I was only hanging out with Elijah so that I wouldn't hurt him. But he was kind, gentle. And he cared for my boy too. So I rewarded him with a kiss. It was the least I could do for him."
Elena: (smiles) "So what changed, did someone find out?"
Tatia: "No one found out. Or couldn't survive to tell it."
Elena: (understands) "Henrik?"
Tatia: (nods) "One night he sneaked out to see where his brother was going. He ended up in the woods. It was a full moon that night. Men turned into beasts and ran through the forest. Henrik was in their way. We heard his screams, and we ran to the forest. But we were too late." (a brief silence) "Nik changed after that night. He blamed me and our relationship for what happened to his brother. And he wouldn't talk to me. I tried so hard to reach out to him. I had to tell Elijah about us and asked him to talk to him. But he was too upset and he didn't help me. Then the brothers started hating each other. It didn't take long until Eshter figured out it was because of me."
Elena: "And it was after Inari visited her, so she came up with a plan to get rid of you." (Tatia looks at her) "Damon told me that you told him."
Tatia: (understands) "Right. I only regret that we didn't end up on good terms. We couldn't say goodbye." (a brief silence) "And I guess that's all there is to tell."
They both look away for a while.
Elena: "You call him Nik!" (Tatia looks at her) "The only other person I heard calling him Nik was.."
Tatia: (interrupts) "Rebekah?" (smiles) "She learned that from me. I was the first one to call him Nik!"
Elena smiles too.
Caroline: (happily) "God I missed you so much!"
Bonnie is clearly surprised by this.
Bonnie: (hugs her back) "Didn't you hate me?"
Caroline: "Well it was then, and I'm over it. We're sisters, idiot! I was upset but I could never hate you!"
Samara: "Well, also watching you dead for three months had an effect on that."
Bonnie looks at Samara. She is clearly confused to see a new face among her friends.
Bonnie: "And you are..?"
Caroline: (realizes that they haven't officially met) "You don't know each other!" (to Bonnie) "Well, Bonnie, you know Lucy. This is her sister."
Bonnie: (looks at her) "We're family?"
Samara: "Yeah I think we are! I heard really a lot about you."
Bonnie: "I hope good things!"
Samara: (smiles) "Mostly."
Bonnie: "Is Lucy here too?"
Samara: (looks down) "No, she passed away."
Bonnie: (surprised in an unhappy way) "When?"
Samara: "Little more than three months. I'm still recovering."
Bonnie: "Oh my god, I'm sorry!"
They try to smile to each other.
Damon: "So why are we all in the witch house?"
Tyler: "The kitsune came back. We're trapped here. Katherine went for help."
Damon: "Katherine went for help? You guys are doomed."
Samara rolls her eyes.
Caroline: "That's exactly what I said."
Damon: "And they hated you for telling the truth, didn't they?"
Caroline: "Damn straight."
Tyler: "Look she's different now. She's not the same girl. She's changed."
Caroline: "Yeah, tell that to yourself."
Damon: "I'm not interested."
June: (looking at the bodies) "So where is the rest, when are they coming?"
Damon: "Listen, uhm. We had a slight problem while bringing Elena."
As they all look at him weirdly, June understand that there's something he doesn't know how to say, so she goes and touches his hand to read his mind. Then looks at Damon after a few seconds.
June: "Where's the portal?"
Damon: (smiles) "You know why I love you? You can spare someone a pretty long conversation!"
June: (she smiles too) "Let's go!"
Nathan: (to Tatia) "You got a minute?"
Nathan: "Hope and I were talking.. You have magic, right? Like Bonnie."
Tatia: "Well not like Bonnie, I mean she is too advanced for me, but yeah, I can do magic."
Nathan: "So you can bring the ghosts back?"
Upon hearing this the ghosts get excited.
Meredith: "Hell yeah, do it!"
Klaus: "They can't hear you, love."
Meredith: "I know that!"
Elena: "Of course! Tatia, you have to do it!"
Tatia: "I can't!"
Elena: "What do you mean you can't?
Hope: "You did it before?"
Nathan: "You do remember the spell, right?"
Tatia: "I remember. But if I cast that spell, those ghosts will draw power from me. My talisman. And I told you, I cannot exhaust this. You will be gone, but I'm gonna stay. I will need this."
Hope: "Well than at least bring one of them back."
Nathan: "Exactly. As far as I'm concerned we're just three humans and a witch who is afraid to use her powers. With Bonnie's protection spell gone we're like sitting ducks here, we need some muscle!"
Tatia: (looks at them for a while) "You're right. I think I can bring one of them back. So I'm gonna bring Nik back."
Meredith: "Oh god!"
Klaus: (happily) "Attagirl!"
Elena: "Klaus? Really?"
Tatia: (sarcastically) "Would that be a problem?"
Elena: "As a matter of fact, yeah!"
Tatia: "You wanted muscle, he's the strongest one."
Nathan: "But Klaus wasn't the one I had in mind!"
Elena: "Do you really think Klaus would care about us? He'll jump into the portal the second you make him corporeal!"
Hope: "That is if he didn't jump already!"
Tatia: "Incorporeals can't pass through the portal, he's still here."
Elena: "Than keep it that way! Tatia, the ghost you make corporeal should be the one that will help us!"
Tatia: "So you got a better idea?"
Nathan: "I do: Meredith!"
Hope: "Even Stefan would be a better choice, he's not really strong but at least he's loyal."
Stefan: "That's what you get when you drag dozens of people to death."
Klaus: "But I did kill the last ogre and saved the rest, didn't I?"
Meredith: "Tell the tales to the kids, Nik. We're all grown up here."
Tatia: "Wow, I forgot how much you guys hated him!"
Elena: "Tatia, we didn't wake up one day and decide that we hated him! He's done terrible things to all of us!"
Tatia: "And I heard Damon did almost as terrible things to you, but somehow only the man I love gets the hate!"
Klaus: "That's right love, tell them!"
Elena: "Do you really think this is about you?"
Tatia: "Maybe if you took one step to him, maybe he'd take two."
Elena: "When I took a step to him, if was after he killed my aunt. And yes, he took two steps to me, to kill me next. That's my first memory with Klaus! The man you love died when his father made him a vampire!"
Tatia: "If that was true, he wouldn't kill his own mother to avenge the woman he loved!"
Elena: "That was a thousand years ago!"
Tatia: "Well maybe that's the problem! After all no one is expected to be sane and normal when everyone around him wants to kill him!"
Elena: "It's not just me, he's pushing away everyone. He daggered his own siblings, he killed his parents. Him and Elijah wanted each other dead for five centuries because of that."
Tatia: "Maybe he's just tired of people wanting him dead." (upon this Klaus' facial expression changes, and he looks at Tatia with confusion) "Maybe he just wants someone who understands him, someone who loves him eternally, with all his rights and wrongs. Someone who doesn't judge him for his past. Someone who believes in him!" (Tatia takes a step to Elena) "And that's exactly what I always gave to Nik. And if he still wants to leave, that's gonna be his choice. But I don't think he will."
Nathan: "You got only one shot with this, my queen. And you're taking a pretty big risk with that."
Tatia: "I'm not. I believe in him!"
Klaus is looking at her, touched deeply due to finding out that Tatia still truly loves him with her whole heart. Elena shakes her head with disapproval. She apparently agrees, but clearly thinks this is a very bad idea.
Stefan: (after a moment of silence) "Wow, that was.. touching."
Meredith: (sees that Klaus is emotional) "Shut up, Stefan!"
Then Tatia starts her spell, and shortly afterwards Klaus becomes visible and corporeal. He realizes everyone is looking at him. He slowly speaks.
Klaus: "Don't worry. I'm not going to bail on you."
Upon hearing that, Elena looks at Tatia with confusion, while Tatia is looking at him with pride.
Damon: (while looking outside) "This is not gonna be easy to break through."
Samara: "Yeah. And Katherine's escape made them edgy, they're not gonna easily let someone else go too."
Bonnie: "We have to fight?"
Damon: "I say bring it on."
Caroline: "We tried that. Didn't work."
June: "I think I have a plan."
Damon: (looks surprised) "Really?"
June: (smiles) "What, am I too young to make plans?"
Damon: (apparently liked this) "No. Let's hear it."
A couple of minutes later, Damon, June and Bonnie walk out of the witch house and come as far as the point where kitsunes can't pass. Damon gets more disturbed as he gets closer to them, as the crowd appears even crowder from close. June reads his anxiety as she is holding his hand, and she starts to freak out too. Finally they reach to the point and stop, and kitsunes look at the three.
One of them: "Surrender?"
Damon: "In your dream, hotshot."
Kitsune: (chuckles softly) "I was kinda hoping you'd say that."
Damon simply moves his head, indicating he's not afraid of him.
Bonnie: (talks to Samara telepathically. Apparently June connected their minds) Samara, be quick!"
Samara: "Hang on!"
Kitsune: "So why did you come? Wanna be the first ones to go?"
Damon: "Well that'd be a little hard to pull off, what with the protection spell and all."
Kitsune: "Right. Hundred dead witches. But see.. " (shows others) ".. we're a little more than hundred here. We're gonna break it, just a matter of time. What I'd worry about is your witch back there. Because I'm afraid while we're breaking it, she's gonna try to keep it up. And at one point, she's gonna have to use all the power she possesses. And.. You know what happens if a witch channels that much power." (Bonnie slowly looks at Samara, who is clearly disturbed about what she hears telepathically and starting to freak out. Then Bonnie looks back at the kitsunes) "One way or another, you're not gonna survive tonight."
Damon: "We'll see about that."
Samara: "Bonnie, now!"
Bonnie suddenly uses her magic to push some kitsunes away, which indicates that Samara just opened a breach. Without losing time, Damon grabs Bonnie and June, and runs with his vampire speed. Samara immediately tries to close the breach, but the kitsune uses magic to prevent it from closing entirely.
Samara: "Damn it!"
The kitsune then looks at the ones at the back.
Kitsune: "Chase them!" (indicating Damon, Bonnie and June)
In no time six kitsunes start running. One of them turns to a falcon and flies, two of them turns into wild animals, and the others continue on foot. Meanwhile Damon cannot continue much longer while carrying two people and stops. A second later Bonnie hears them coming.
Bonnie: "They're coming!"
Damon: "We can't lead them to the portal. We have to fight here!"
Bonnie: (nods, as she agrees with him) "Right."
Meanwhile at the witch house, Samara is feeling an intense pain.
Chris: "Samara, what's going on?"
Samara: "The breach I opened, they're trying to widen it!"
Tyler: "Oh god, no!"
Caroline: "Samara, you can't let that happen!"
Samara: "That's what I'm trying to do! Aaah!"
To the noise he made as he died, Damon quickly looks at Bonnie. She is pulling her knife out of his heart, Damon is clearly thinking about if this was how she killed Natalie, with a knife in her heart.
He makes up his mind quickly and turns to the fight. His two arms are held by two kitsunes, and the third is about to make an attack. Damon quickly kicks the third one with his both feet, and pulls his one arm with great strength. The kitsune flies away, and Damon uses his free arm to break the neck of the kitsune who is holding his other arm. Then hears the third kitsune attacking again. He quickly turns and rips his heart out. Meanwhile the kitsune Damon threw randomly falls near Bonnie. Bonnie, extremely cold-bloodedly, uses her magic to pull the ax from the kitsune's head. June quickly looks at where the ax is going, and sees Bonnie catching it in the air. Damon looks at her unable to believe what she is about to do. He and Bonnie look at each other for a second, then Bonnie lands the ax on the kitsunes head, decapitating him. June screams for a second, as she is freaked out. Then Bonnie drops the ax, and looks at others. June and Damon are looking at her with shock.
Bonnie: "Shall we go now?"
Back at the witch house, Samara's pain is intensified, and she is yelling and screaming.
Chris: "Samara, stop pushing! You're gonna hurt yourself!"
Samara: (panting with pain) "I can do it!"
Chris: "No you can't, can't you see it? You must break your bond with those dead witches, or you're gonna end up like them!"
Tyler: "Chris is right, Samara! You can't take it any longer."
Caroline: "I told you, Katherine would never return to help us."
Tyler: (looks at her angrily) "I made a mistake, okay? Now do we fight each other, or think of something to save our asses?"
Caroline: "Katherine's gone, June's gone. It's just the four of us and three dead bodies against a hundred of them! We're dead, Tyler! We can't survive! It's over."
Suddenly they startle with Samara's another scream.
Chris: "It's not worth it, goddammit! Just break it!"
Samara: "I can't! Caroline's right, if I let go we're all dead!"
Tyler: "And if you don't, you'll die! It's gonna break either way!"
Samara looks at Tyler while panting.
Chris: "He's right. It's gonna break either way. So it's not worth to kill yourself!"
Caroline: "Samara you've done enough, don't fight it anymore."
Samara is clearly hesitating.
Chris: "Break it, Samara, just break it! Break it!"
Upon this Samara quickly looks at them, then takes a deep breath and breaks her bond with the 100 dead witches. As soon as she lets go, the pain is gone. Chris immediately hugs her. Meanwhile outside, the kitsunes look at each other. Realizing the spell is broken, they attack to the witch house full force.
Samara: (sees them coming, speaks with fear) "They're coming."
They quickly at the door.
Tyler: (takes a deep breath) "Here's goes nothing!"
He and Caroline look at each other. They are almost looking at each other like saying goodbye. Then they nod to each other other. After all Katherine was right. None had any intention of doing down without a fight.
Finally the kitsunes arrive at the door, and the final battle begins.
Meredith: "About time!"
Elena: "You came."
Damon: "Yeah." (looks around) "Where's Stefan and Meredith?"
Elena: "They're here. Their physical foothold broke after Bonnie went."
Damon: "Then how do I see this hybrid?" (only then sees Tatia coming near him, and understands) "Typical!"
Tatia: "You must tell Bonnie to come here. Right now. When she went not just the ghosts' physical foothold was broken but also the protection spell is gone."
Damon: "Well she's helping June right now, she can't come." (looks at Elena) "C'mon, you'll pass and I'll push."
Elena: "Wait wait wait!"
Elena: "Nothing, I just.." (looks at the portal) "This is big, Damon." (looks at Damon, and smiles) "I'm going home!"
Damon: (smiles too) "Yeah. Take it as your birthday present." (they look at each other) "Happy birthday, Elena." (Elena smiles happily. So happily that everyone else shares her happiness) "Now come on."
Elena stands in front of the portal, takes a deep breath, and pushes her hands in it. And this time, they go inside. Everyone smiles happily, as it means they can all go home. But just as her wrists went into the portal, Elena feels something wrong.
Elena: "Oh god!"
Elena: "The portal, it's pushing me back!"
Hope: "But why, it doesn't make sense?"
Nathan: "I'm guessing it's because of the body she's wearing. It's created by Inari's magic, so the portal doesn't let her pass."
Damon: "To hell it doesn't! Klaus, give me a hand. We'll push her in!"
Klaus does so, and as two vampires push Elena in the portal with a great strength, Elena suddenly feels something intense. The more she goes into the portal, the more her life flashes before her eyes. Her childhood memories, her mother giving her her first diary, how her parents died, how Stefan and Damon walked into her life, Jenna dating with Alaric, Bonnie faking her death against Klaus, how he turned Stefan into a ripper, her heart to heart with Lexi at the grill, how Rebekah caused her car accident, her final moments as a human, and then everything passes blurry.
Suddenly June and Bonnie see Elena's hands appearing at the portal.
June: "Bonnie, pull her out!"
Bonnie: "What about you?"
June: "I'll be fine, go!"
Upon this Bonnie leaves June and slowly goes down into the crater to get to the portal. then grabs Elena's hands and pulls her with all her strength. As more of her appears outside the portal, at the cemetery her grave starts shining. Bonnie, unaware of what's happening at the grave, looks at June randomly. That is when she sees that June's nose is bleeding heavily, as she is clearly using an incredible power in order to let Elena pass. She freaks out at first, but then realizes she has never seen June this strong and determined. So she grabs Elena's arms, gathers her strength, then pulls Elena with everything she's got. Meanwhile at the Guardian's Gate, Elena's feet finally go into the portal, and as soon as she disappears, an incredible energy blast pushes everyone on both sides of the portal away. June falls on her back while Bonnie and Elena fly to somewhere else, and Damon and Klaus are literally thrown at the other side of the temple.
June hears Bonnie's voice calling out for her from some distance.
Bonnie: "June! June are you okay?"
June feels completely and utterly exhausted, but she forces herself to stand up, and replies Bonnie.
June: "I'm okay. Where's Elena?"
Bonnie: "She's here, with me. She's passed out."
June goes to where Bonnie's voice comes from, and is shocked to see Elena completely naked except the jacket Bonnie just covered her with.
Bonnie: "I don't know, she came like that."
June: (anxiously) "Is she alive?"
Bonnie: "She has pulse, and she's breathing."
June: "Wait, is she.."
Bonnie: "She's human, June! She's human!"
Upon this they smile to each other. But as soon as they go back to the portal, they are shocked to see that it's no more there."
June: (freaked) "Bonnie, where's the portal?"
Bonnie: (equally freaked) "I don't know!"
They look at each other with shock, clearly not knowing what to do.
Meanwhile at the Guardian's Gate, Klaus and Damon raise their heads and look at the device. The explosion seems to have bended the pillars. It's still sending energy beams, but to random points. Upon seeing it everyone freaks out.
Klaus: "No no no no!"
Tatia: (goes near the device) "It's not broken, it can still work."
Hope: "But not fully right?"
Tatia: "Well, if there is damage on the energy cells, then it surely won't last long."
Damon: "Then we gotta fix this quick."
Nathan: "I don't understand, why did this happen?"
Tatia: "That's what I don't get, it doesn't make sense. What could have done this?"
Suddenly they all startle with a voice that comes behind them.
Misao: "That would be me."
They quickly turn and see Misao, and three guardians following her. Suddenly everyone freaks out.
Stefan: "Oh, crap!"
Meredith: "Couldn't she have any worse timing!"
Misao: "So out of that huge army of rebels, it's only you two, huh. It's not like I didn't warn you. This path was never for humans."
Damon: "I guess "mind your own business" would be a little pointless at this point, huh?"
Misao: "And you, Tatia. I think I told you what would happen if I saw you at the wrong side again."
Tatia: "I'm not at the wrong side. I am where I should be."
Misao: (smiles dangerously) "Took you a thousand years."
Tatia: "Better late than never!"
Misao: (looks at the guardians) "Get them!"
Suddenly the guardians start teleporting around.
Nathan: "Open fire!"
As he and Hope start shooting the guardians with their automatics, Tatia starts running to Misao and pushes her out of the Guardian's Gate with her magic. Misao starts rolling down the rocky cliff until she hits to the ground where the gang stepped on after they came to this side of the canyon. But due to her speed, Misao rolls a little more and almost falls into the pit. She manages to grab the edge in the nick of time. Before pulling herself up, she looks and sees that Tatia came near her. She gathers her strength and jumps, and kicks Tatia with her two feet. Tatia literally flies to the rocky side and hits, but manages to stay up. They look at each other, then attack each other.
Up in the temple, Damon and Klaus are trying to catch the guardians by using their vampire speed, but the guardians are always running from them. Unlike the regular guardians, these ones seems stronger and faster, as they must have been specially trained to defend the Guardian's Gate. Nathan keeps shooting after sensing where they will go, but even he cannot make an accurate shot. Suddenly Nathan shoots one point, and a guardian just appears there. Then he and Hope concentrate their fire, and the guardian turns into dust as one of the bullets finally hits it's heart.
Tatia is trying her best to fight back to Misao, but Misao is both magically and physically stronger than her, and she keeps beating Tatia like she is nothing. Then she grabs her and pushes away. Tatia tries to get up before she comes, and slams her to the rocky side with her powers. Misao reels, and using this, Tatia punches her several times, then pushes her away with her powers. From where she is gone, Misao uses her powers too and she pushes Tatia away.
Meanwhile in the witch house, the fight is incredibly hopeless. Even though Tyler, Caroline, Samara and Chris do better than their bests, it is not even remotely enough, as when they get rid of one kitsune, two or three more comes. Samara tries pushing them with her magic, while Chris keeps force pushing and fighting them. Tyler and Caroline have never been more organized, as they are literally reading each other's minds during their attacks. But even they are surrounded.
Klaus sees that a guardian just teleported above Nathan and Hope, but before he can warn them, Damon jumps to the guardian and saves them. But instead of falling to the ground, the guardian teleports above the canyon with Damon, and then leaves him to the pit. Upon seeing this, Tatia ignores Misao for one second, and uses her magic to stop Damon's fall and brings him to the far side of the ground they are standing on. But Misao doesn't miss this chance, and starts punching Tatia relentlessly, then kicks her away. Tatia gets up and pushes Misao with her powers, but Misao defends herself and she barely moves an inch. But suddenly Tatia runs to her and hits, and they both fall to the ground, with Tatia at the top. Damon quickly looks at their fight, and seeing that Tatia interestingly can hold her own, decides to go back up. But as soon as he's gone, Misao overpowers her and gets the upper hand. Tatia suddenly feels her back hit the rocky side. She quickly ducks to dodge Misao's next punch, and gets behind her. But Misao takes height from the side, and kicks Tatia's face while she was still in the air. This move breaks Tatia's strength. She drops down, and cannot even defend herself as Misao keeps hitting her like a soccer ball.
Damon arrives to the temple, but he doesn't jump into the action right away. He waits for a perfect moment, which is when a guardian teleports just in front of him. He doesn't miss this chance, and quickly breaks it's neck. As the guardian falls lifelessly, Damon and Klaus look at each other. Then they look at the device. As both are clearly thinking the same thing, they rush to the pillars and try to fix it with their strength as Hope and Nathan are dealing with the last guardian.
Meanwhile Misao drags Tatia until the edge, and with one last kick, Tatia finds herself falling. However, she manages to grab the edge, but her situation is still hopeless. Misao suddenly raises her hand and focuses on Tatia's necklace. Tatia understands what she's planning to do, and cries desperately.
Tatia: "No! Please! No! No!"
But Misao doesn't even hesitate for one second, and pulls the necklace. Then applies intense magic and pressure to it, until it is destroyed. Tatia can only yell "No" one more time. Then Misao uses her magic to raise Tatia. As she is now floating just above the endless pit, Tatia is well aware of her inevitable fate. As tears drop from her eyes, she makes her final wish.
Tatia: "Do whatever you wish to me. Just please don't hurt Niklaus!"
Upon this wish, Misao's looks change. She is clearly frustrated. She hesitates for one second, then angrily slams Tatia to the rocky side as hard as she can with her magic. After the hit, Tatia drops down lifelessly.
Only then Misao realizes that something is up at the Guardian's Gate with the device, and starts climbing up to the temple incredibly fast. At that time Damon and Klaus had fixed three pillars and they are now trying to fix the last one. As the fourth energy beam is about to meet the other three, Misao has already passed the half way. Klaus and Damon finally manage to fix all four pillars, and the portal starts to appear again.
Bonnie sees in the crater that the portal is opening again.
Bonnie: "June, step back!"
June gets away from the portal, and when it is wide enough, Bonnie jumps into it. As Bonnie is now back at the Guardian's Gate, her broken spells are restored. Stefan and Meredith gain physical foothold, and the protection spell is back up. Misao, who is merely one second late, hits an invisible wall, Bonnie's magic, and is forced to stop.
Stefan and Meredith rush to save Hope and Nathan from the third guardian. But before they come, guardian manages to kick Nathan, and intends to teleport Hope above the pit. But he cannot get out of the temple, as Bonnie's protection spell is restored. The guardian is stunned, but Hope has blacked out. Klaus rushes to the guardian before it can run again, and Stefan also comes in no time. Bonnie looks around with pride.
Bonnie: "The spell is back up. No one can get out," (looks as Misao) ".. no one can get in!"
Misao helplessly watches Stefan and Klaus as they tear the guardian apart limb by limb, until Klaus makes the final move and destroys it's heart, thus turning it into dust. Misao realizes that she can't penetrate this spell, at least not before it's too late, so she angrily turns into an eagle and flies away.
Meredith and Nathan hug each other passionately and kiss.
Nathan: "Don't ever leave me again!"
They kiss again. Then everyone gathers happily as they are finally ready to go. Only Nathan goes to check Hope at where the guardian dropped her, near one of the columns.
Stefan: "Now we go?"
Bonnie: "Yeah!" (laughs happily)
Damon: "Where's Elena?"
Bonnie: "At the other side. June is with her."
But their fun is interrupted when Nathan yells.
Suddenly everyone turns to Nathan, and at that time the guardian that Damon broke it's neck wakes up. Catching everyone off guard, the guardian literally beats everyone with kicks and punches. Nathan saves Meredith from a hit in the nick of time, but it teleports behind her and hits her anyway. Then the guardian teleports somewhere else and punches Damon, then teleports behind Stefan and strangles him. Meredith shoots, but the guardian teleports again and punches Bonnie before she can do something with her magic. Klaus attacks the guardian, but it flees again. Nathan suddenly finds himself face to face with the guardian. He intends to fight, but the guardian is moving faster than him. Then Nathan feels that the guardian will teleport behind him. Instinctively he jumps forward. But the guardian grabs him in the air, teleports him to the ceiling, and pushes him to one of the stalactites. He grunts with pain as the stalactite pierces his body, then he falls down to the floor lifelessly. Meredith cries and yells Nathan's name helplessly. Then the guardian teleports near Nathan's dead body, and sees that Damon is running to him with vampire speed. He tries to teleport, but realizes with shock that he can't. Only then he looks around, and sees June focusing on him. As it turns out she jumped into the portal too to help them out, and now she's blocking the guardian's teleporting ability.
With their psychic near them, the gang attacks full force to the guardian. Guardian manages to keep up at one point, but gets tired in no time against three vampires, one witch, and an angel who are all out for blood. So eventually Bonnie uses her magic to push the guardian near Klaus, who grabs the guardian and throws to the air. Seeing this, Meredith jumps from where she is, calls her wings and flies until she reaches to the guardian. Then she lands on him, and with a totally unexpected move, she jams her fist in the guardian's chest, and rips it's heart out.
Samara: "Look, angels!"
Everyone looks instinctively, and they are all shocked to see literally an angel army, easily dozens of them, flying to them at the same time. As they get closer, the kitsunes start freaking out, and they scatter around. But the angel army hits with a huge impact, and every single kitsune around gets killed one by one. Katherine jumps from the back of an angel, and immediately goes to help Tyler, who is held by two kitsunes. As soon as she decapitates one with a powerful smash, Tyler uses his free hand to rip out the heart of the other.
Angels scatter around as they sense where are the kitsunes who ran, and in less than one minute, the entire kitsune army is exterminated to the last one.
Klaus: (smiling) "So I guess we're all ready to go home."
Stefan: (while looking at a certain point) "Not all."
Upon this they look at where he's looking, and they see Meredith, crying and sobbing near Nathan's dead body.
Bonnie: "Oh my god!"
They slowly go near her.
Stefan: "Meredith?" (Meredith looks at him with tearful eyes) "It's time to go home."
Meredith: "You go. I promised him that I would never leave him!"
Damon: "Oh, come on. You don't mean that!"
His careless tone and cold voice apparently disturbed everyone, as they all look at him unable to believe. But Meredith reacts even worse, and with intense anger and annoyance, she gets up quickly and punches him in the face as hard as she can. Damon wasn't expecting this, so he falls on his back.
Meredith: (angrily) "Show a little compassion you heartless bastard!"
Everyone, even Klaus is freaked out by this scolding. After a moment of silence, Damon gets up. Then June breaks the silence.
June: "Meredith?" (Meredith looks at her) "I understand he was important to you. But you can't just stay here. Because there is someone on earth who loves you, and it's your brother. I spent my last three months with him, and he spoke of nothing but you. He loves you, Meredith. So you should at least go back to him."
Meredith cannot hold her tears anymore and starts crying again. Then looks at Nathan.
Meredith: "It wasn't supposed to be like this. It wasn't supposed to end like this. What did he do to deserve this fate, huh? How is this any fair?" (looks at them) "We were supposed to go to earth. Together! We were going to travel the world. We would go to a cinema, watch sunset, and in winter, we were going to play snow balls. We were going to walk under the rain and hope to see the rainbow. He had a whole life ahead of him. With me! But now.. I can't even bury him! So tell me, how is this any fair?"
Stefan goes near her, and she cries on his shoulder. A little while later, she sniffs and looks at Nathan one last time. Then lets Stefan walk her to the portal. She looks to the big yellow ball meaninglessly.
Stefan: "Hey, it's gonna be okay. I know it doesn't mean anything to you right now, but it is."
Meredith: (replies with a cold voice, without even looking at him) "No, it's not. It's never gonna be okay."
Then closes her eyes and leaves herself into the portal. Damon looks at June after she's gone.
Damon: "Go!" (June nods, and jumps into the portal. Damon looks at Stefan) "After you, brother."
Stefan jumps into the portal too. Damon quickly looks at Bonnie and Klaus, then he jumps too.
Klaus: "Here we go!"
Then starts walking to the portal, but suddenly, Bonnie uses her powers to throw him away from the portal.
Bonnie: "Not you!"
A confused Klaus gets up and looks at Bonnie.
Klaus: "What are you doing Bonnie?
At that time Hope finally opens her eyes and looks around, but sees no one other than Bonnie and Klaus discussing.
Bonnie: "I told you that I would find a way to get rid of you, without hurting my friends!"
Klaus: (understands) "So this is it? You're gonna ditch me here?" (Bonnie doesn't move or nod, but the way she looks indicates that this is the plan) "You know the second you jump into that portal I'll follow you."
Bonnie: "Then we'll stay here forever. You and me."
Klaus: "So you're sacrificing yourself. How noble! I'm sure your friends will appreciate that. Unless they are too busy hating you."
Bonnie: "Doesn't really matter. I will have saved the world from an asshole like you, that's an enough consolation for me." (Klaus wildly looks at her) "Tell me one thing, Klaus. After you go back to earth, would you leave Elena and June alone and leave town in peace, or would you still tear that family apart for your stupid obsessions?" (Klaus doesn't reply, but Bonnie already knows the answer) "I knew it. You know what, Klaus? Misao was right. You never learn!"
Klaus intends to attack Bonnie, but before he can, suddenly someone jumps on his back and tries to hold him still. Bonnie looks, and sees that it's Hope.
Hope: (yells) "Bonnie go!" (Bonnie doesn't know what to do, and she cannot move. Hope yells again) "Go Bonnie! The portal's closing, go!"
Upon hearing this Bonnie quickly looks at the portal. It is indeed closing. Hoping that Hope can manage to hold Klaus long enough, she turns around and starts running. Suddenly Klaus shakes Hope, and runs after Bonnie with vampire speed. June sees that the portal is closing on earth. Knowing that Bonnie is still inside, she yells her name desperately. Meanwhile Hope reaches to her gun, and starts shooting Klaus relentlessly. And as pure luck, before he can reach Bonnie, a bullet hits his leg and he falls. Then Bonnie jumps into the portal, and as soon as she passes, it closes completely. Klaus yells with anger and desperation, knowing that now he's trapped in the Dark Dimension.
Bonnie gets out of the portal on earth just one second before it closes, and June lets go of her breath with an intense relief. Damon stands up and looks at where the portal was.
Damon: "Where's Klaus? And Hope?"
Bonnie quickly looks at him.
Klaus slowly takes out the bullet in his leg, and watches it heal. Then turns around and looks at Hope wildly. Hope is looking at him the same way. She leaves her weapon to the floor, indicating she accepts her fate and will not fight against him. But Klaus does not show mercy. His vampire veins appear, his eyes become yellow, his fangs appear, and finally, he attacks Hope.
Two angels bring another dead kitsune from the forest, and throw it in the fire in front of the witch house. Apparently they are burning the dead kitsunes.
Angel: "This was the last of them."
Chris goes near Brigitte, and they hug each other.
Brigitte: "I'm so sorry."
Chris: "It's okay."
Brigitte: "So, they're all gone?"
Chris: "Yes. It's just me and Meredith now."
Brigitte: "Is she okay?"
Chris: "Kind of a long story."
Brigitte: (smiles) "It always is." (looks around) "This should be hands down the craziest thing ever. An army of angels?"
Chris: (chuckles) "Stay one week in Mystic Falls!"
Brigitte: (smiles) "Thanks!" (meaning "No way in hell!")
Chris: (looks at the witch house) "I think my sister.."
Chris: (they look at each other quickly) "Thanks again for everything."
As the angels leave the area one by one, Chris runs to the witch house and goes to the basement, where his sister's body is. She seems to have awoken a couple of seconds ago.
Chris: (with longing) "Meredith!"
Meredith tries to smile, but her pain is so big that she ends up crying. Chris quickly hugs her, and she hugs him back.
Damon: "So Klaus is gone?"
Bonnie: "I assume someone will find him at the Guardian's Gate, and he'll end up in a cage where he will be left to desiccate like Stefan."
Damon: (nods) "That's good."
Bonnie: (looks at Damon quickly) "You can smile, I won't tell anyone."
Upon this June and Damon smile, and all three start walking home with Elena.
