On Halloween, Stefan and Damon desperately hide Oscar's corpse, as his death disables their exchange plan with Lily, who released Caroline to Enzo's delighted relief. They turn for his resuscitation to Bonnie and Alaric, who admits having kept the Phoenix stone. However the sorcery ritual proves hard to crack while the heretic girls, Nora and Mary Louise come searching for the corpse, which is hid in the dorm. Lily instructs Nora and Mary Louise to kill a student at Whitmore College every hour unless Oscar is returned to her. So, Stefan and Bonnie team up to lure Nora and Mary Louise to Whitmore's annual Heaven and Hell dance to keep an eye on the couple while Damon, Bonnie and Alaric try to resurrect Oscar using the Phoenix Stone. Also, Valerie confides in Enzo about killing Oscar in order to prevent him from detailing the whereabouts of Lily's former lover, Julian, whom Valerie has a past with. Written by KGF Vissers

Blackout High on Blood
30 October 2015 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"I Carry Your Heart with Me" is one of the better episodes of this season - not without its fair amount of cringe though. In this week's flash forward we see Damon stop by Alaric (and his kids!) to presumably reunite with his old friend and try to defuse this future crisis that we don't know much about yet. A cool scene nonetheless. Back in present time, Damon finds Oscar dead and has to cancel the trade for Elena's coffin. This has several consequences. Mary Louise and Nora decide to go on a killing spree at a Halloween party which really just leads to awkward heretic drama that we don't really care for at this point. It does however give 'some' character development. Damon, determined to get Elena's coffin back, resurrects Oscar with help from Bonnie and the Phoenix stone. Oscar escapes and goes on a killing spree for more human blood before being captured and returned to Lily. This episode had a rough start but the Damon/Oscar scenes were definitely entertaining to watch. They really brought back the horror aspect of this show and the cliffhanger made me excited to see what happens next. My vote is 8/10
