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?

Are you on the PC? – ヴァイシャリ Jan 29 '12 at 18:55
Experienced the same problem, the latest patch on consoles fixes this glitch. – Dom Aug 27 '13 at 13:47

For PC version, first go find Vilkas, then open the console and type setstage c05 10. This will cause any follower to leave you and Vilkas to join you and starts the quest.

For Xbox and PS3 possible fix and more info, read Bugs section in this page.
