This question already has an answer here:
I have already returned to Vilkas after killing the witches; it then went into forever mourning mode. I did not realise this was a glitch at first, and now have far too much play time after to throw away in order to go back to before the bug. I have tried running through the silver hand place and got the helm of Winterhold (without killing anyone), which I then returned, however the bug remains. Is there any way around it?
