Make note of this, fang fans: When it comes to her precious cubs, Care Bear does NOT mess around! And this becomes quite evident in a new sneak peek clip from The Vampire Diaries episode 8×06, in which her fiancé, Stefan Salvatore, offers to help track down her young daughters’ whereabouts and she basically shuts him down.
Shocking, right? Not really. Despite his genuine efforts to do everything in his power to rescue Lizzie and Josie from their evil siren nanny Seline — including compelling local authorities to make this case a priority — Caroline informs him that this is one mission he’s not welcome to join her on; he should just stay home and lend Matt Donovan and the police a hand while she Alaric head off to save their children. Confused and bewildered, Stefan demands to know why she’s giving him the cold shoulder all of a sudden, and she makes it perfectly clear to him: Damon is going to be there and if he gets between her and her girls, she’s not going to think twice about killing him. Probably best for his lil’ bro to hang back and not try to intervene, ya know?
With tensions running high and her kids’ safety at stake, it’s no surprise Caroline is slamming her foot down on this matter. As harsh as her response is, she certainly isn’t wrong about the lengths Stefan would go to for Damon (and vice versa). “I do not think he ever gives up on his brother,” Paul Wesley, who directed this installment, explained during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly. “No matter what you do, you’re always thinking about your family. The family is above all else, above the rational and the logical. He will always support his brother, no matter what happens. ” Interestingly enough, the CW’s official synopsis for “Detoured on Some Random Backwoods Path to Hell” teases a major sacrifice on Stefan’s part; so we have a feeling he’s not going to take a seat and wait around while everyone tries to save the Saltzman twins from Cade and the sirens.
