The Hybrid is the second episode of the third season of The Vampire Diaries and the forty-sixth episode of the series.

Summary

THE NEW ORDER - Klaus puts a plan in motion that will give him even more power, but even with the unwilling participation of werewolf Ray Sutton, things don’t go exactly as Klaus had planned. Damon and Alaric reluctantly go along with Elena’s new strategy to find Stefan, leading Damon into a dangerous fight with an unexpected enemy. Jeremy turns to Matt for help as he continues to try to understand what the ghosts from his past want from him. Unaware that Caroline is in need of his help, Tyler faces an emotional confrontation with his mother.

Quotes

Damon: "Just can't stay away, can you?" 
Elena: "You've been dodging my calls."
Damon: "Yeah, well, busy dating a dead fake girlfriend and all." 
Elena: "Why didn't you tell me?"
Damon: "Happy Birthday, Elena. Stefan killed Andie. Cake?"
Elena: "How do you feel about a little hike through the Smoky Mountains?"
Alaric: "You wanna hunt down a pack of werewolves on a full moon?"
Elena: "We'll be out of there before the moon is full. If you don't come with me, I'm going by myself. What? You're the one who told me that I could handle things on my own now."
Alaric: "Yeah, I meant like frozen dinners and SATs. A-all right fine. Let's just... Let's just go. But, uh, you're driving."
Elena: "You're better at it than you think, you know?"
Alaric: "Oh, boy, are you a sucker for a lost cause or what?"
Elena: "You're not a lost cause, Ric. You're just lost. But so is Jeremy, and so am I. Our family is gone. We don't have anybody. I'm sorry, but you don't have anybody either, so... We're kind of good for each other."
Alaric: "I'm keeping the ring, then." 
Damon (To a werewolf): "Here doggy, doggy."
Elena: "Are you okay? Did you...?"
Damon: "Fine, bite-free. Get back in the car, please."
Elena: "Can you just give me a minute to appreciate that you're not dead?"
Damon: "I'll give you 10 seconds. 9, 8..." (He catches her and pushes her toward the car) "Hey, Ric, did you happen to see where I parked my car?"
Elena: "Yes, I worry about you. Why do you even have to hear me say it?"
Damon: "Because when I drag my brother from the edge and deliver him back to you, I want you to remember the things you felt while he was gone. Good night, Elena."
