The sirens are still a major problem, but The Vampire Diaries is going to have to take time to bury one of their own in “Coming Home Was a Mistake.” It’s time to say goodbye to Tyler and for everyone to remember what matters most.

In this episode, Damon’s latest actions prove he may be past the point of return, but unwilling to give up on his brother, Stefan is forced to make a gut-wrenching decision that threatens to change their relationship forever. Elsewhere, Caroline offers Bonnie advice on how to break through to Enzo. Also, Matt tries to decipher a mysterious box of messages he received.

Watch the promo for “Coming Home Was a Mistake”:

It looks like they’re going to be burying Tyler in the next episode — or at least looking like they’re at a funeral. “Nobody wants you here,” Caroline tells Damon, who warns them he’s going to bury them all. Will Stefan let Caroline help him when it comes to going up against his brother? Will he lose him forever like he fears?

Check out the producer’s preview for this TVD episode:

“In season 1, when Stefan felt like everything was getting out of control, he tried to break up with Elena by telling her coming home was a mistake,” executive producer Julie Plec says of the callback in this episode’s title. “And boy oh boy oh boy was it a mistake this time around.”

Tyler Lockwood has returned to Mystic Falls, but “he’s coming home in a box,” the EP continues, calling it “a devastating turn of events for all of our heroes.” “This is someone who was their friend, someone who they loved. For Matt Donovan, it was one of his best friends in the entire world. For Caroline, it was one of her first loves. For Stefan, it represents how far Damon is willing to go to sever his ties with his emotional relationships … It is really, really, really the worst thing Damon could’ve done and now our heroes have to put Tyler to rest.”

Meanwhile, they have no idea that Alaric’s nanny is the second siren, and “he’s going to have to pay the price for his lack of understanding.”
