The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 18, “I Could Never Love Like That,” expands the vampire and witch mythology with the introduction of the dangerous Heretics. Lily helps Stefan get his humanity back by using Damon’s emotional words (since she has no emotional heart of her own), but hides her true evil intentions.
