At the close of the first-ever residency at the Ryman Auditorium on Friday, country vocal group Little Big Town gave the audience a glimpse of how some of the first performers on that stage sounded like.
With The Vampire Diaries inching ever nearer to its ultimate conclusion, we just had to know that the Cade (Wolé Parks) problem would resolve itself sooner than later for logistics' sake, but who could've expected such a twist to be associated with the Devil's demise?
Kai (Chris Wood) "killing" Damon (Ian Somerhalder) in last week's final moments was, in classic Vampire Diaries style, just a moment of cliffhanger drama because of course that wasn't the end of our steely-eyed antihero.
Damon invites Cade to go ahead and finish things by dragging him onto Hell after Kai siphoned his body dry, but Cade's got some leverage to play with in getting Damon back onto the earthly plane of the living to retrieve that dangerous dagger.
Stefan tries to play to his sensibilities at first, offering kill Cade and resolve both of their problems, but Kai's vision is too tunnelled to see the benefit in that so he stabs Stefan in the hand upon discovering that he's a human now instead.
Damon wants Stefan to back down from his intention to go human toe-to-immortal hellbeast toe with Cade, but Stefan's already been ready for that bossy protector chat and injects Damon in the neck with something that'll buy him a little time.
Thankfully, Damon wakes up and says that Stefan's little suicide mission doesn't invalidate his agreement with Cade anyway, before he can execute his brother.
Damon chooses the self-sacrificial route behind door number three, however, and offers his own soul in trade for both his brother and lady and, slowly and terribly, stakes himself to make it so.
She arrives just in time to find Damon in Limbo, seconds from being dragged to Hell by Cade, and decides to put up a fight the only way she can.
 Cade was right to worry about her because she's stronger than even he might've expected as the two engage in what Damon cheekily calls and "anti-climatic" showdown of stares and grunts with their telekinetic force
As most of Hollywood gears up for the Oscars on Sunday and the whirlwind of events and parties this weekend, celebrities and top talent agents gathered in Beverly Hills Friday to do something to do something a little different: rally for immigration rights.
