The Salvatore brothers are living the worst of their times, which started with Elena's deep slumber. After losing the love of his life, Damon Salvatore is now grieving for his mother, not just because she sacrificed her life to save him and Stefan but also for the years of rude behaviour he meted out to her.
The guilt has grown so deep that he has become violent and self-centered. In the upcoming episode, Stefan will try his best to heal his elder brother's sorrow while fighting his own hell, which he endured during his time inside the Phoenix stone.
The episode will also focus on Bonnie and Matt as they struggle before Julian and his men, who will take over Mystic Falls, the vampire town. Caroline's fans will have something to cheer about in the episode as Alaric will host a baby shower for her where Tyler will also be invited.
The official synopsis of episode 14 titled Things We Lost in the Fire reads:
"With the traumatic effects of the Phoenix stone taking a toll on his brother, Stefan (Paul Wesley) attempts to help Damon (Ian Somerhalder) regain his grip on reality, while secretly struggling with his own experience in the stone. Elsewhere, Matt (Zach Roerig) and Bonnie (Kat Graham) deal with the fallout after Julian (guest star Todd Lasance) and his men take over Mystic Falls, leading Matt to spiral out of control and into trouble with an officer named Penny (guest star Ana Nogueira). Meanwhile, Tyler (guest star Michael Trevino) returns to town for Alaric's (Matt Davis) baby shower and Caroline (Candice King) makes an upsetting discovery involving Alaric and his future plan for the babies."
