If you have been having this question when it comes to “The Vampire Diaries,” we are here with an answer: Friday, February 5. The second installment back after the winter break is entitled “Things We Lost in the Fire,” which we assume was a title they thought was rather creative at the time they were doing it. “Grey’s Anatomy” actually did use the same title for the recent winter finale.
This episode was directed by Paul Wesley, and the synopsis below makes it clear that the return of Trevino’s Tyler Lockwood is brought on by the big news for Alaric and Caroline, which has to be quite an odd thing for him to get accustomed to in the first place:
“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.”
The great news here is that seemingly, the show is not as intent on isolating Damon and Stefan for a lengthy period of time as they were for Ian Somerhalder’s character during the early part of season 6.
