(Caroline leaves her house out and locks the door. She turns around and sees Tyler.)
Caroline: Hey. How's it going?
Tyler: We need to talk.
Caroline: Yeah, we do. Listen… I’ve been thinking about it and I don’t want to over analyze. It was just one kiss but Matt’s still kind of in the picture. We can’t go there, Tyler.
Caroline: Great. That’s settled.
(She goes toward her car)
Tyler: What happened to my uncle Mason?
Tyler: He’s dead and I want you to tell me what happened.
Caroline: I… I don’t…
Tyler: Then let me tell you: Stefan and his brother Damon killed him because Stefan and Damon are vampires, just like you.
Caroline: Who told you that?
Tyler: Is it true?
Caroline: Let me explain.
Tyler: Did you know he was dead this whole time?
Tyler: Did you know?!
(She nods and Tyler pushes her against her car)
Caroline: I’m sorry, Tyler. I’m sorry.
Tyler: I trusted you!
(He releases her and leaves)
(Damon is in his bathroom, in the shower. He’s listening to the news and goes in his bedroom to watch)
Andie Star: The authorities believe last night’s assailant may also be related to the missing campers and Park ranger who have yet to be found as well as 25 year old Jessica Koenig, reported missing this morning. The sheriff department says investigations are pending and no further comment will be made.
(John is in the kitchen, watching TV. Elena enters the room.)
John: Good morning
Elena: What are you doing here?
Elena: We’re not doing that. We did that last night, no more avoiding. Why are you here?
John: I’m here to protect you. That’s all I can say for the moment.
Elena: What do you mean that’s all you can say?
John: I’ll tell you more when I’m convinced I can trust you.
(Jenna and Alaric enter the room. Jenna sees John)
Jenna: I'm late.
Alaric: That's what you get for hitting the snooze three times.
Jenna: What the hell?
John: Good morning to you, Jenna. Alaric…
Jenna: It’s okay I’m confused, right? Because we were not excepting you like ever.
John: Well, I got in late last night. Elena let me in.
Alaric: You know, I'm probably just gonna take off.
(He looks at Elena and leaves)
Jenna: I’m still confused here.
John: I decided to come back and stay for a while.
Jenna: Not here, you’re not.
John: Actually, you can’t stop me from living here.
Jenna: Actually I can, as legal guardian.
John: Yeah, about that… Elena, you want me to explain the situation or would you like to do the honors?
Jenna: Okay, what’s going on?
Elena: I’m sorry, Jenna. I should have told you earlier but…
John: I’m Elena’s biological father. There, now you know.
(He leaves. Elena is alone with Jenna)
(Stefan and Damon are in Stefan’s bedroom)
Damon: You brought back John Gilbert? That was your big save Elena move?
Stefan: I went to go look for Isobel and I get John instead. He said he can help us and we’re desperate.
Damon: We’re not that desperate, Stefan. The guy tried to barbecue me!
Stefan: Damon, Bonnie’s new witch friend is working with Elijah so we have to assume that the moonstone was never destroyed . Elena is putting all of her faith into some deal that she made with Elijah to keep everyone safe. I mean, do you trust Elijah? I don’t trust him. He’s an original, he can’t be trusted. It’s not like we can just go up and kill him because apparently he can’t die!
Damon: I’m still waiting for the part where John Gilbert is the answer.
Stefan: He knew about the sacrifice. Isobel told him. He said he knew of a way to keep Elena safe.
Damon: And how do we do that?
Stefan: He’s not talking. At least not to me anyway.
Damon: Great work Stefan. Top notch. As if I didn’t have enough problems.
Stefan: Hey, I’m sorry about Rose.
Damon: Whatever. I knew the woman for 5 minutes.
Stefan: And you cared about her after 5 minutes. I wonder what that means.
Damon: It means I care, Stefan. It means I’m changing evolving into a man capable of greatness. Better watch your back because I may just have to go get a hero hairdo of my own and steal your thunder.
(He leaves. Stefan receives a text from Caroline telling him that there is an emergency)
(Someone rings the doorbell. )
Tyler: I got it Mom.
(Tyler opens the door. It’s Jules. He lets her in.)
(Caroline lets Stefan in)
Stefan: What’s wrong?
Caroline: Tyler knows about you and Damon. He knows that Damon killed Mason. I didn’t say a word.
Stefan: It’s that woman, Jules. She had a run in with Damon.
Caroline: Tyler was so upset. The look on his face, he was so betrayed.
Stefan: Wow, this is bad.
Caroline: You’re not gonna tell Damon, are you?
Stefan: No, he already wants to kill him. He thinks all werewolves should die and he’s not wrong to think that, Caroline. I mean, what if Tyler tries to retaliate? He has every right to. He could get himself killed.
Caroline: Well, we’re not gonna let that happen. We have to get to him and reason with him before he does something stupid. You have to talk to him. Just try to explain, you know? You always know the right things to say, okay? He and I… we’re friends.
Jules: I was right, wasn’t I? Your little vampire friend, she was lying.
Tyler: What do you want?
Jules: I want you to understand that a vampire will never be your friend. It’s our nature to be enemies.
Tyler: You know how stupid that sounds?
Jules: You need to leave here, it’s not safe.
Tyler: I can’t just run away with you. I don’t even know you. My mom would freak. My life is here.
Jules: Your old life. Your new life is just beginning. You have so much to learn.
Tyler: Like what?
Jules: How to survive. You’ve triggered the curse, Tyler. It’s important you learn what it means to be a lycanthrope. We live by a code of loyalty. We take care of each other. It’s my duty and honor to help you. Please let me.
(Elena lets Damon in)
Damon: Where’s John?
Elena: He’s not here, he left. I don’t know where he went. He just blew in, announced to Jenna that he’s my dad and then took off.
Damon: That's public knowledge now?
Damon: Are you okay?
Elena: Yeah. Jenna’s head spinning but I’m okay.
Damon: He said what he was doing here?
Elena: No. You know, Stefan thinks that he’s telling the truth about wanting to help me.
Damon: Do you believe him?
Elena: No. I don’t believe him for a second.
Damon: Me neither.
Elena: What are we gonna do?
Damon: Kill him.
(Damon starts to leave.)
Damon: I’m joking. Okay, I’m a little serious.
Damon: I’m not gonna hurt him, Elena. I’m the good guy now, remember?
Elena: What does that mean?
Damon: I’m gonna have a civil conversation with your father.
Elena: Wait, I’m coming with you.
(Tyler is in his father’s office and looks at the computer. Stefan’s here. Tyler sees him and tries to leave but Stefan stops him)
Stefan: I’m not gonna hurt you. I just want to talk.
Tyler: Then why did you break in?
Stefan: Would you have let me in otherwise?
(Carol Lockwood is going down the stairs and goes toward the office)
(Tyler tries to leave the room but Stefan catches him and pushes him against the wall. His face has changed)
Stefan: Shh. Not a word.
Carol: Tyler? I’m leaving for the memorial.
(Jules arrives at a RV . She knocks)
(She opens the door but no one’s here. She turns around. Brady’s here. She smiles and they kiss)
Jules: This is a hard place to find.
Brady: You told me to stay under the radar.
Jules: Thanks for coming.
Brady: Are you sure these vamps killed Mason?
Jules: Positive. You have to be careful.
Brady: I’m not afraid of a vampire.
Jules: I know baby but I want the boy more than I want vengeance.
Brady: I say let’s get both.
(Stefan releases Tyler)
Stefan: Maybe we're getting off on the wrong foot here.
Tyler: What happened to Mason?
Stefan: Tyler, there’s a lot for us to talk about.
(He tries to leave but Stefan catches him)
Stefan: I wouldn’t do that. Without a full moon you’re no match for me.
[Mystic Falls’ square]
(It’s the memorial. John rejoins Carol)
Carol: It’s good to have you back, John. We could really use you.
John: And the council? What are they doing?
Carol: Damon Salvatore is leading the council now. Talk to him. Excuse me.
(A woman arrives to talk to Carol. She leaves John. Jeremy joins him)
John: Jeremy, there you are.
Jeremy: Looks like I slept through the homecoming.
John: You didn’t miss much. Let’s say that no one’s happy to see me would be an understatement.
Jeremy: Look, things are different now. You can’t come around and start up with all this anti-vampire stuff.
John: I have no intention of doing that. How’s that ring been treating you?
Jeremy: Look, if this is what you came for, just take it and go.
(He gives him the ring but John doesn’t take it)
John: What kind of a man would I be if I took that from you? You want to go grab some lunch?
Jeremy: I think I’ll pass.
(John leaves. Jeremy sees Bonnie and smiles. Jonas joins Bonnie)
Jonas: Hello Bonnie.
Bonnie: I don’t have anything to say to you, Doctor Martin or your son.
Jonas: You must be feeling very confused about us.
Bonnie: There’s nothing confusing about it. I trusted Luka and he betrayed me. Elena told me you were both working for Elijah so don’t lie about it.
Jonas: I won’t but that doesn’t mean we’re not also looking out for you.
Bonnie: Spare me the witch loyalty crap.
Jonas: You might not want to believe this but Elijah is a man of his word. You can trust that he’ll keep his end of the deal with Elena to keep you and your friends protected.
Bonnie: You’re right, I don’t believe it.
(Jeremy rejoins them)
Jeremy: Is there a problem here?
Bonnie: Not at all.
Jeremy: What was that about?
Bonnie: More lies.
(Jenna and Alaric are sitting at a table)
Jenna: I can’t believe it. Elena is my sister’s husband’s brother’s daughter and her mother is my boyfriend’s deceased wife. You can’t make this stuff up.
Alaric: It’s definitely a little overwhelming.
Jenna: I can’t believe that they kept it a secret. How is it even possible to keep a secret like that?
(John enters the mystic grill and joins them)
John: Hey you two. Do you think I can join you?
Jenna: Do you have to?
John: I guess I don’t have to but might as well. Look who's here.
(John turns his head and sees Damon and Elena arrive)
Elena: We just need answers. Please don’t do anything stupid.
Damon: Yeah but stupid is so much more fun.
Elena: Damon, I mean it. All I’m asking is you try to keep it together. Be the better man.
Damon: Okay then.
(They join John)
Damon: John, buddy, how have you been?
John: I’ve been alright, Damon. It’s good to see you.
Stefan: Look, about Caroline, no matter what her flaws are, when push comes to shove, you're gonna want that girl on your side. She’s your friend, stop being a dick to her.
Tyler: I thought vampires hated werewolves.
Stefan: That’s some sort of leftover idea from another time. It doesn’t have to be that way anymore. We go to the same school. We have the same friends. We keep the same secrets. This can work, Tyler. I mean, it’s your home, it’s my home too. I want this to work.
(Tyler’s phone rings. He answers. It’s Jules)
Tyler: Help, help!
(Stefan catches the phone and throws it on the desk.)
Stefan: Who’s number was that? Damn it Tyler! I’m trying to save your life. Can’t you see that?
(Jules hangs up. She’s worried and rejoins Brady)
Jules: We have a problem
(John is lighting a candle for the victims. Damon rejoins him)
Damon: So John, rumor has it that you know a lot and won’t say anything.
John: How do I know you can be trusted, Damon? Originals can compel vampires and according to Stefan, that’s why Katherine’s still in the tomb, because an original has compelled her to stay there.
Damon: Only because all of the vervain have left her system. Stefan and I on the other hand are chock full.
John: You guys are drinking vervain?
Damon: It’s an acquired taste. I don’t see that magic little ring on your stitched finger so if you know something about Klaus, you better start talking or I will kill you in your sleep.
John: Is that any way to convince me that you and I are on the same side? First, I need to know that I can trust you, Damon, that I can count on you. Then we’ll talk.
(Caroline is on the parking lot. Matt rejoins her)
Matt: Hey! Hey!
Matt: I haven’t seen you.
Caroline: I’m not avoiding you, I swear.
Matt: Yeah. You’re avoiding me a little.
Caroline: Okay, maybe a little.
Matt: Can we talk later? I mean, I’m heading to work right now but maybe after, to clear some of this weirdness.
Caroline: Yeah, yeah, I’d really like that. I’ll just swing by when you’re closing?
Matt: Sounds good.
Caroline: Okay, bye.
(He leaves. Caroline goes to her car and feels that someone’s behind her. It’s Jules)
Jules: Excuse me, Caroline right?
Jules: I’m looking for Tyler. You haven’t seen him, have you?
Caroline: No, not since earlier. Sorry.
Jules: I know you’re lying.
Caroline: Really? How? Is that one of your little wolf tricks?
Jules: Actually it is.
Caroline: Well, I have a trick too.
(She vamps out and turns around but Jules sprays her with a vervain spray. Caroline is hurt, heals and turns around again but Brady shoots her in the head)
(Caroline is in a cage in Brady’s RV. She has a wound on her head. She screams a little and gets the wooden bullet out of her head. She tries to unlock the cage but sees Brady.)
Brady: I see you got the bullet out. That was nasty. I got lots of wooden bullets, other toys. It’s gonna be a long night, sweet pea.
(He shoots her. She screams.)
Tyler: You want to be friends, great, we‘re friends. Will you go now?
Stefan: I don’t know what else to say to you Tyler. I came back to this town because I wanted a life, I wanted to exist where I could have friends and where I could build a family. I have that here, we can both have that.
(Stefan’s phone rings. It’s Caroline’s phone. He picks up)
Stefan: Hey. Is everything okay?
Jules: That depends. How badly do you want to keep her alive.
Stefan: Who is this?
Jules: Ask your brother. Where’s Tyler?
Stefan: Jules? Where’s Caroline?
Jules: You made a mistake, Stefan. I'm gonna give you a chance to fix it.
Stefan: Where is she?
Jules: Right here. Want proof?
(Jules goes into the room containing Caroline and Brady.)
Jules: He needs proof.
(He shoots Caroline and she screams. Stefan hears her screaming.)
Tyler: What's happening?
Stefan: Hurt her again and you’re dead.
Jules: I hurt her again and she’s dead. Bring Tyler to me, the clearing by Wickery Falls. You have 20 minutes until she dies.
(She hangs up)
(Damon is at the bar. Jenna rejoins him. She’s with a woman)
Jenna: So, my friend wants to meet you. Damon Salvatore, this is…
Damon: I know you. The news lady.
Andie: Yeah, Andie Star. Nice to meet you. Can I buy you a drink, Damon?
(Elena is looking at them)
Damon: My glass is all full, Andie. Thank you.
(He leaves and rejoins Elena)
Elena: You totally blew her off.
Damon: I'm steering clear off all women at the moment.
Elena: You didn’t have to be rude.
Damon: Trust me, it’s in the best interest of women everywhere.
(Elena’s phone rings. She answers it.)
Elena: Stefan? What is it?
(She looks at Damon)
(Damon and Elena are in the restrooms)
Damon: Why am I just finding out about this now?
Elena: Stefan was worried that you…
Damon: That I’ll what? That I’d kill him? Of course, it’s what’s need to happen.
Elena: No Damon, not Tyler. Do whatever you need to do to get Caroline back but just leave Tyler out of it, okay?
Damon: Why? He’s a werewolf, he needs to die. I’m willing to kill him, it’s win-win.
(She touches his arm)
Elena: Damon please, okay? Too many people are dead.
Damon: You need to stop doing that.
Elena: Doing what?
Damon: Assuming that I’ll play the good guy because it's you who’s asking.
Elena: Be the better man, Damon.
(John enters the room)
Damon: Do you mind?
John: What’s going on?
John: It doesn’t look like nothing.
Damon: Well guess what John, trust works both ways. Get out.
Elena: Look, we don’t have time for this. We need to get Caroline back.
Damon: We don’t need to do anything. I’ll take care of it.
(He turns around and looks at John)
Damon: First dad duty: ground your daughter. Keep her here.
Elena: I’m coming with you
John: No, no, no, no, no. I’m with Damon on this one. No, stop, stop. You’re not going anywhere. Just tell me what’s going on.
(Caroline is still in the cage. She’s crying.)
Brady: So, How many vampires are there in this town anyway?
(She doesn’t answer so he shoots her with a squirt gun filled with vervain. She screams)
Caroline: Why are you doing this to me?! Why are you doing this? Why?
Brady: You’re a vampire. Why not?
(He throws wooden sticks in her neck. She screams.)
Brady: I’m sorry, what was that?
Caroline: Let me out!
Brady: Excuse me? What was that?
Caroline: Let me out!
(Brady gets out and rejoins Jules outside)
Jules: Get it out of your system?
Brady: No, I’m just getting started.
Jules: Brady, let’s be smart about this. I just want the boy. It’s our duty to help him, it’s who we are.
Brady: You want to talk duty and honor? These are vampires. They cross one of us, they cross all of us. That’s who we are.
(Elena gets out of the restrooms. John’s here)
John: You’re not leaving this restaurant.
Elena: You can’t tell me what to do.
John: Yes I can. You want to know why? Because I’m here to make sure you stay safe.
Elena: I’ve got that covered.
John: Are you talking about the deal that you made with Elijah? Do you really think he’s gonna keep his promise to you? Putting your faith in him was a dumb move.
Elena: Are you saying I should put my faith in you? After everything that you did to Damon and Stefan?
John: We've had our difference and I’ve made mistakes but you and I, we’re family.
Elena: You don’t get to use that word. That word is off limits to you!
John: Fine, but it doesn’t change the facts.
Elena: You’re right. Facts are facts so listen up: you may be my father but I’m never going to be your daughter, you got that?
(Jules is alone. Suddenly she hears something)
Jules: I know you’re out there.
(Stefan goes out of the woods with Tyler)
Stefan: Where’s Caroline?
Jules: Locked up tight.
Stefan: Let her go and I'll release Tyler. It doesn’t have to get any messier than it already has. I’m not your enemy, Jules.
Jules: It’s a little late to be waving the white flag, don’t you think?
Stefan: You need to leave town. No one else has to get hurt.
Jules: I’m not leaving without Tyler.
Stefan: Tyler is free to make his own decisions as soon as you release Caroline.
Damon: My brother the peacemaker. Since Stefan got here before me I’m gonna let him try it his way before I resort to my way, which is a little bloodier. So give us Caroline.
Jules: Let go of Tyler.
Damon: Give us Caroline. Without a full moon it’s not an even fight and you know it. We will take you.
Jules: I’m not so sure about that, tough guy.
(She whistles and a lot of people, including Brady, arrive around them. They have stakes, crossbows and fire)
Jules: Let’s try this again. Give us Tyler.
(Damon looks at Tyler)
Damon: You heard her. Go. Get over there.
(Tyler rejoins Jules)
Brady: Which one of you killed Mason?
Damon: Uh, that’d be me
Brady: Boys, make sure that one suffers
(Damon looks at Stefan)
Damon: We can take them.
Stefan: I don’t know about that.
Damon: Well then…
(He rushes over Jules but she jumps on the top of the RV. Tyler’s gone inside. One of them tries to burn Stefan but he takes him and burns two werewolves. One of the werewolves jumps on Damon but he rip his heart out before he gets to him.)
(Inside the RV, Tyler sees Caroline in the cage)
Caroline: Tyler, there’s a latch on the door and I can’t get to it.
(Outside, Stefan kills a werewolf. Another throws a stake at him but he catches it)
(Inside the RV)
Caroline: Tyler, please! Tyler?
(He finally goes toward the cage)
(Stefan fights with one of the werewolves and drive a stake through his body. Another throws him an arrow but he catches it and throws it in his neck. The werewolf falls on the floor. Another goes behind Stefan and drives a stake through his back. Stefan falls on the floor. Damon fights with Brady but Jules arrive and shoots him with a wooden bullet. He falls on the floor)
(Tyler opens the cage so Caroline goes out of the RV but Jules catches her, pushes her against the RV and puts a gun to her back. Tyler goes out and looks at Caroline but he doesn’t do anything. Brady takes a stake and is about to kill Damon but suddenly he screams and the other werewolves too. They all take their heads between their hands and fall on the floor)
Caroline: What’s happening?
Tyler: What the hell is going on?
(Jonas appears. He’s casting a spell on the werewolves. Damon and Stefan get up)
Jonas: Elijah made a promise to Elena. I’m here to see it’s upheld. You need to go. Get out of here. Now.
(They leave. Jonas look at Tyler.)
Jonas: When your friends awaken, give them a message: They need to get the hell out of this town.
(Caroline is with Stefan)
Stefan: So is your mom home?
Caroline: No, she’s at work.
Stefan: I can come in if you want me to.
Caroline: I’m fine, Stefan.
Stefan: You don’t have to pretend with me. Anybody would be upset after what you went through tonight.
Caroline: I’m okay. I’m not girly little Caroline anymore. I can handle myself.
Stefan: Sure you can.
Caroline: I just really want to go shower so…
Caroline: Good night.
Stefan: Good night.
(She closes the door)
(Damon opens the door. John’s here)
Damon: What do you want?
John: We didn’t finish our conversation.
Damon: I’ll bite.
(John enters the house)
John: I’ve been thinking. Personal feelings aside Damon, I think you and Stefan will do all you can to protect Elena
Damon: I agree with that statement.
John: So I come bearing gifts.
(He opens a towel. There’s a dagger and a vial in it)
Damon: What is that?
John: This is how you kill an original? In this vial, is ash from a white oak tree that dates back to the genesis of the originals. The dagger must be dipped into the ash and then plugged into their heart.
(Damon takes the dagger)
Damon: How do you know all this, John?
John: Isobel. She’s very good at finding out things but of course you know that.
Damon: Where is Isobel?
John: Let’s just say if she accomplishes what she’s attempting, Klaus will never set foot in Mystic Falls. Where Elena’s concerned, you and I are on the same side.
(Caroline is in her bedroom and is looking at her wounds. Her phone rings, it’s Matt)
Matt: Hey. Did something happened?
Caroline: Oh my… I’m so sorry Matt.
Matt: Are you okay?
Caroline: Yeah. Something came up with Bonnie and she needed me. A friend thing. You understand?
(Matt turns his head and sees Bonnie and Jeremy laughing at a table)
Matt: Yeah so you’re with her right now?
Caroline: Yeah so I’m not gonna make it tonight but can I see you tomorrow?
Matt: Yeah, sure. I hope everything works out. Good night
(He hangs up)
(Someone knocks on the door. It’s Tyler. Caroline opens the door)
Tyler: Are you okay?
Caroline: I’m fine.
Tyler: I had no idea they would come for you.
Caroline: Do you know what they did to me?
Tyler: I’m sorry but it’s crazy now okay? I don’t know who to trust. You lied to me.
Caroline: I lied to protect my friends. I lied to protect you. Don’t you get that?
Caroline: You just stood there when they were going to kill us. You just stood there! You didn’t do anything!
Tyler: I didn’t know what to do!
Caroline: You help your friend, that’s what you do.
Tyler: I’m sorry.
Caroline: No it’s too late because we’re not friends anymore and what happened to me tonight, that will never happen again so you take that back to your little werewolf pack and you get the hell out of my house!
(She slams the door)
(Elena takes a bottle of water in the fridge and when she closes it, John’s here)
John: I’m sorry about earlier.
Elena: Enough already. I don’t want you here and I can’t make that anymore clear.
John: I didn’t come here to fight with you, Elena.
Elena: Yeah I know, you’re here to protect me. Got it, get in line.
John: I thought you might want this. It was you mother’s.
(He shows her a bracelet)
John: No, your mother, Miranda. I remember her wearing it when she was young. I found it in a box with some things that your dad left me. Here, it’s yours now.
(He gives it to her)
John: Miranda and Grayson were your parents, Elena and I know I’m nothing to you. You have no reason to believe me or trust me. I’ve done so many horrible things but when you lost your parents, I lost my brother, my family. I lost my way. I know that I probably won't ever make things right with you but I’m gonna do everything I can to protect you and protect this family.
(He leaves. She’s crying. She turns her head and sees Stefan. She rushes into his arms.)
Elena: Are you okay?
Stefan: I’m fine.
Elena: Did you hear that? I don’t believe him, Stefan. I just don’t. What happened tonight? How’s Caroline?
Stefan: I could use your help.
(Tyler knocks on the door. Jules let him in. she’s with Brady)
Jules: Hey, come on in.
Tyler: I’m sorry about your friends.
(He sits down)
Tyler: It’s not always like this, is it?
Jules: No. Is it Brady?
Brady: No man. You’re living in vampire country, that’s all. It’s way better than this.
Tyler: Mason didn’t tell me anything about it. He was gone. Dead I guess, before he could help me.
Brady: I don’t get what Mason was even doing here in the first place.
Jules: His brother died. You know that Brady.
Brady: Why was he stupid enough to stay and get himself killed?
Tyler: Because of this rock he was trying to find.
Brady: What rock?
Tyler: A moonstone.
(Brady looks at Jules)
Jules: I had no idea.
Brady: A moonstone? Did he find it?
Brady: Where is it now?
Tyler: I couldn’t tell you.
(Stefan knocks on the door. Caroline opens it)
Caroline: What’s going on?
Stefan: I was a bit worried about you after everything you went through tonight.
Caroline: I’m fine.
Stefan: Good but just in case, I brought some back up.
(Elena and Bonnie arrive)
Elena: We’re gonna slumber in.
Bonnie: We haven’t done it in ages.
(Caroline cries. They embrace each other. Elena looks at Stefan and tells him she loves him. He tells her he loves her)
(Damon is in his bathtub with Andie Star)
Andie: I can’t believe you called me. I thought I was being way to forward when I had Jenna give you my number.
Damon: I like a woman who knows what she wants.
Andie: Thank you, so what do you want mister tall, dark and handsome?
Damon: I’m not that tall. I need a distraction.
Andie: You can booty call me anytime you want.
Damon: You see, the thing is, miss sexy reporter girl, I have a problem I need help with. It’s really messing with my mind.
Andie: Oh, tell me about it.
Damon: I’m in love with a woman I can never have.
Andie: I knew it. I know how to pick them. So why can’t you have her? She’s with another man I assume?
Damon: Yeah but that’s not the point. The point is I’m in love with her and that drives me crazy. I’m not in control.
Andie: You don’t trust yourself around her?
Damon: I don’t trust myself around anyone, Andie. I’m bad, Andie. I do things. I kill people.
(Suddenly she’s afraid but he compels her)
Damon: Don’t be afraid, you’re okay.
Andie: Why do you kill people?
Damon: Because I like it. It’s in my nature, it’s who I am but then I have to stay together to protect her and she wants me to be the better man which means I can’t be who I am. Do you see the problem I’m having, Andie?
Andie: Well, maybe this is who you are now. Love does that Damon, it changes us.
Damon: Just stop talking. Just kiss me, be my distraction.
(They kiss. He bites her and drinks her blood)
(Katherine is sitting but she hears a noise and gets up. John’s here.)
John: I know you were expecting someone else.
Katherine: I sent Stefan to find Isobel.
John: She got your message. She was busy so she sent me instead.
