With 24 hours left before he begins his life-long quest to please Cade and stay out of hell, Stefan Salvatore has one wish: To have the perfect Christmas Eve with the woman he loves. But when Damon and Sybil crash their dinner — along with Alaric, Matt, and Peter — let’s just say that Stefan doesn’t get his wish.

However, the worst guest of all appears to Stefan behind “the veil.” In an exclusive sneak peek at the Vampire Diaries mid-season finale, Cade stops by the Salvatore mansion. Only, he’s not there to let Stefan out of the deal. Rather, he’s there to show Stefan why he’s the “perfect person” to serve him. In other words, get ready for some dark stuff, friends.

Watch the exclusive clip above.

The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
