'Vampire Diaries' Season 5, Episode 14 'No Exit' Recap/Spoilers: Stefan Rescues ‘Ripper’ Damon and Discovers Katherine’s Secret

By on

"The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 resumes its regular airing schedule with Episode 14 titled "No Exit." The story picks up with Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) turning into a "Ripper" vampire that kills vampires so Stefan (Paul Wesley) decides to save his brother from going down the destructive path and discovers a shocking secret in the process involving someone close to them.

Spoiler Alert: This feature contains major spoilers on "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5, Episode 14 "No Exit." Enzo (Michael Malarkey) declared in the previous episode that Damon's thirst for vampire blood instead of human blood will be a problem but chose to help his buddy with this vampire feeding issues. "I don't abandon my friends," Enzo told Damon.

Katherine in Elena's body (Nina Dobrev) enjoys her time with Stefan as they study history together but her moment got cut off when Caroline (Candice Accola) rang the doorbell. The blonde vampire brought Stefan some information on Damon's whereabouts.

Then, Caroline received a phone call from Tyler (Michael Trevino) sounding worried about his best friend Matt (Zach Roerig) who has not been home in days. Dr Wes Maxfield (Rick Cosnett) tracked down Enzo and Damon, his "Patient Zero" in the home of their victim with the help of the Travellers trapping the "Denzo" murder buddies inside.  

Stefan and Elena/Katherine went on a road trip to find and save Damon but Katherine keeps on doing things to delay their plan and have Stefan to herself like taking out an engine plug from Stefan's car and putting grease on her shirt and face so they can check in a nearby motel to clean up. Caroline and Tyler had an awkward meet up to talk about what happened to Matt but their good friend showed up with Nadia (Olga Fonda) who keeps on compelling him.

Realizing that it is not a good idea to be trapped with Damon, Enzo chained up Damon and contacted Stefan for help. Katherine, who has been cooking up ways to seduce Stefan, answered Stefan's phone and asked Enzo the address on where to find Damon.

Dr Maxfield shows up again, shooting Enzo at the shoulder, to test Damon's behaviour while they are still trapped in the house. Another scene showed that Katherine and Stefan are not the only ones having a "canoodling" moment.

Nadia and Matt initially talked about something that they had in common: mother issues. Then, the two started to canoodle with Matt taking Nadia's phone to send a text message but he got busted with only the words "Help. K" sent. The Traveller compelled Matt again saying that he will forget everything that has happened.

Nadia was about to leave but Caroline stood at the doorway to confront the Traveller. As the fight between the two turn nasty, Tyler arrived at the Lockwood mansion to save Caroline and bit Nadia on the arm.

Stefan and Elena/Katherine arrive at the house to save Damon and they have succeeded despite Katherine's plan of offering herself to the "Ripper" Damon to make Stefan choose who to save: Damon or "Elena."

The ending scenes showed Katherine meeting with her daughter, Nadia, who delivered the bad news to mommy dearest about the werewolf bite that she got from hybrid Tyler and best friends Stefan and Caroline discussing about the time that Stefan spent with "Elena" during his mission to rescue Damon.

"She's acting strange," Stefan stated. As Caroline and Stefan put the pieces of the puzzle together starting with the strange text message that she got from Matt, they figured out what Katherine did with the Traveller's spell and the person inside Elena's body, pretending to be Elena, is none other than the Petrova doppelganger.  

Find out what happens next in "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 when the favorite TV series return with Episode 15 titled "Gone Girl" on Thursday night, March 6, at 8 pm ET on the CW Network.
