[Mystic Falls High School]
(The school is empty. Matt is training when he hears a noise. He gets up and walks through the school. He finally enters a classroom, it's dark inside, when he steps inside he sets off mouse traps that had been placed there. He turns on the light. Tyler, Caroline, Elena and Bonnie are here)
Caroline: Ohh! Oh, come on! Seriously?! Do you know how long it took for us to set all this up?!
Tyler: Forgot about senior prank night, huh?
Caroline: How could you forget? We've only been waiting for this since like freshman year.
Elena: Yeah, Matt. If I'm doing this, you're doing this.
Matt: I'm kind of surprised any of you are doing this.
Bonnie: Caroline's making us.
Caroline: We're about to be seniors. These are the memories that will stay with us forever, and if we don't...
Elena: And if we don't create these memories now, then what's the point of it all?
Caroline: Go ahead and make fun, I don't care.
Tyler: You're all lame. And I've got ten more classrooms to prank.
(He takes his bag and leaves. Elena's about to leave too)
Bonnie: Hey! Where are you going?
Elena: To superglue Alaric's desk shut. I'm making memories.
(She smiles. Caroline smiles too)
Caroline: I love you!
(Elena goes out of the classroom and sees Tyler giving instructions to other students)
Tyler: Get the faculty toilet seats, and Dana needs bodies in the gym. Let's go.
(Elena laughs and opens the double doors. She's face to face with Klaus)
Klaus: There's my girl.
(She tries to run, but he stops her.)
Klaus: You are supposed to be dead. What are we going to do about that?
(Damon and Katherine are in a car. He's driving)
Katherine: Are you hungry? Let's stop for a bite. A truck stop. Or a trucker.
Damon: Oh, stop being cute.
Katherine: It's not possible.
Damon: We've been driving around aimlessly for hours. Where are we going?
Katherine: Far enough away so that you can't go running back.
Damon: Not to worry. Mystic Falls and I are on a bit of a break.
Katherine: You and Mystic Falls, or you and Elena?
Damon: Let's just say Elena and I are having a bit of difference of opinion on how I should behave.
Katherine: Ooh. Let me guess... Elena wants you to be the hero, and you don't like playing pretend.
Damon: Something like that.
Katherine: Her loss.
(They kiss but Damon finally pushes her off of him.)
Katherine: What are you doing?
Damon: I thought I'd give it a shot. Truth is, you just don't do it for me anymore.
(Stefan wakes up. Rebekah's here)
Rebekah: Oh, he lives.
Stefan: What happened?
Rebekah: You took a beating. My brother's been breaking your neck all afternoon. Quite the temper.
Stefan: Why did he bring us back to Mystic Falls?
Rebekah: You can stop playing dumb now. It didn't take him long to figure out what you've been hiding.
Stefan: I'm not hiding anything. I've done everything Klaus has asked me to.
Rebekah: No, you just failed to mention that the doppelgänger's still alive.
Stefan: Where is Klaus now?
Rebekah: With any luck, ripping that cow's bloody head off.
(He rushes at her and they fall outside the truck)
Stefan: Where is she?
Rebekah: You really do love her, don't you?
(She gets up and pushes him against the truck and takes a crowbar. She puts him around his scruff)
Rebekah: Consider me jealous.
(She drives the scruff through his stomach)
[Mystic Falls High School]
(Klaus is holding onto Elena's arm and they're walking through school)
Klaus: You put a rather large kink in my plans, sweetheart. The whole point of breaking the curse and becoming a hybrid was to make more hybrids. I haven't been able to do that. Now my bet is, it has something to do with the fact that you're still breathing.
Elena: If you're going to kill me, just do it!
Klaus: Not until I know I'm right. But I do have ways of making you suffer.
(They enter the gym. A few students are here are making pranks. Klaus speaks with an American accent)
Klaus: Attention, seniors. You have officially been busted. Prank night is over. Head on home.
(He sees Dana and another student. He gets closer to them and speaks with his normal voice)
Klaus: You two. I remember you.
Dana: I'm sorry. Who are you?
Klaus: Oh, don't worry, I wasn't in my right head last time we met.
(He compels her)
Klaus: Lift your foot up, please, Dana.
(He looks at the boy)
Klaus: If she drops her foot, Chad, I want you to beat her to death. Understood?
Elena: Don't, Klaus. You don't have to hurt anybody.
Klaus: Oh, come on, love. Of course I do.
[Middle of nowhere]
(Damon stops the car and gets out. Katherine gets out too)
Katherine: Why are we stopping?
Damon: I thought we might want to stretch our legs. Take a break from the sexual tension. I'm tired of driving. It's your turn.
(He throws the keys away)
Katherine: Hey! I...
Damon: We're not going anywhere until you spill your guts.
(She takes something out of her pocket and shows him Elena's necklace)
Katherine: Do you recognize this, hmm? A little birdy told me that Klaus wants to get his hands on it.
Damon: Why would Klaus want Elena's necklace?
Katherine: Does it matter? He wants it, and I have it. It's leverage, Damon. Always stay one step ahead of your enemy.
Damon: I'll keep that in mind.
Katherine: But more importantly, when I stole the necklace from Bonnie, I found out something else... Something better.
Damon: Oh, yeah? What's that?
Katherine: Are you willing to do whatever it takes to stop Klaus? No turning back?
Damon: I'm not turning back.
Katherine: Good. Because this isn't going to win you any points at home.
(She opens the trunk. Jeremy is in it, uncounscious. Damon looks at him and then at her)
Damon: Jeremy? Really?
[Mystic Falls High School]
(Caroline and Tyler are in the hallway. She puts honey on the lockers. Tyler kisses her)
Caroline: Do you think Matt's going to be ok?
Tyler: I'm kissing you and you're wondering about your ex-boyfriend?
Caroline: I'm asking you if you think our friend, who we both love, is ok.
Tyler: I think he probably doesn't have a lot of people to talk to anymore. I think he's struggling more than he lets on. I think that I love how big your heart is.
Caroline: I just want this school year to be great, you know? I just want everyone to be happy. Even in the midst of all the crazy unhappy bits.
Tyler: I'm happy.
(They kiss. Rebekah arrives)
Rebekah: You two are adorable.
(They look at her)
Caroline: Uh, do we know you?
Rebekah: You're Caroline, Elena's friend, which makes you Tyler. The werewolf.
Caroline: And who are you?
Rebekah: I'm the new girl.
(She vamps out)
(Rebekah rushes over to Caroline)
(Bonnie and Matt are putting Toilet paper on the pool)
Bonnie: This is fun, right?
Matt: You sound like Caroline.
Bonnie: Come on, I am embracing her philosophy. You should be more into this.
Matt: I know. Where's Jeremy tonight?
Bonnie: I haven't talked to him all day. We're having, um... He, uh, he told me about seeing Vicki.
Matt: Ohh. Good, I'm glad that you know.
Bonnie: I'm sorry. Is it weird talking about your sister like this?
Matt: No, I... I just kind of want to see her myself, you know? I mean, I never got to say good-bye to her.
Matt: Do you realize that just last summer, you and I were lifeguards at the pool? And the only two problems I had in my life were that Elena was breaking up with me and I sucked at CPR.
Bonnie: Everything was so different then.
Matt: Yeah. Now Elena's dating a vampire, you're a witch, my sister's a ghost, and... I'm... I'm just a guy who's wondering how life got so screwed up.
Bonnie: It's crazy, Matt. I... I can't imagine what it must be like for you.
Matt: It just, uh, kind of explains why I'm not that into senior prank night. I'll go grab a couple more rolls. Then we'll hit the gym.
(Matt is in the bathroom. He grabs some paper rolls in the stalls. One of the doors open by itself. He enters the stall, sees a graffiti that says "RIP Vicki" and then closes the door. Vicki's behind him)
Vicki: I'm here, Matt. I can help you
(He doesn't hear her)
(Dana is still on one foot)
Klaus: Keep it up.
Elena: Where's Stefan? What did you do to him?
Klaus: Stefan's on a time out.
(The doors open. Bonnie and Matt enter)
Elena: Bonnie, get out of here!
Klaus: Ah, I was wondering when you'd show up. Now we can get started.
(He looks at Dana)
Klaus: Ah, Dana, why don't you relax? You and Chad sit tight.
(He looks at Bonnie)
Klaus: I assume you're the reason Elena's still walking around alive?
Bonnie: That's right. If you want to blame someone, blame me.
Klaus: Oh, there's no need for blame, love. Just your witchy interference seems to have caused some undesirable side effects. And since you caused the problem, I'm going to have you find the fix.
(Rebekah enters with Tyler)
Tyler: Get off of me!
Rebekah: Hush now.
Klaus: I'd like you all to meet my sister Rebekah. Word of warning... She can be quite mean.
Rebekah: Don't be an ass.
(She throws Tyler in Klaus' arms)
Elena: Leave him alone!
Klaus: I'm going to make this very simple... Every time I attempt to turn a werewolf into a vampire hybrid, they die during the transition. It's quite horrible, actually.
(He bities his wrist and makes Tyler drink his blood)
Klaus: I need you to find a way to save my hybrids, Bonnie. And for Tyler's sake... You better hurry.
(He kills him. Elena, Matt and Bonnie are shocked. Klaus smiles)
(Stefan is in the parking lot and has the crowbar in his stomach. He wakes up and removes it)
(Dana and Chad are sitting on the floor. Matt is next to Tyler's body)
Matt: He killed him.
Elena: He's not dead. Klaus's blood will turn him into a vampire.
Klaus: And if Bonnie's successful, he'll live through his transition. Go on, then. Go and fetch your grimoires. and enchantments and what-not. I'll hold on to Elena... For safe-keeping.
(He catches Elena's arm and looks at her. Elena makes a sign to Bonnie and she leaves with Matt. Rebekah looks at Elena)
Rebekah: So this is the latest doppelgänger. The original one was much prettier.
Klaus: Enough, Rebekah. Take the wolf boy elsewhere, would you?
(Rebekah takes Tyler and leaves with him. Klaus looks at Elena)
Klaus: Just ignore her. Petty little thing.
(Matt and Bonnie are in the hallway)
Matt: What are you going to do?
Bonnie: I have no idea. The curse he's talking about is a thousand years old. My grimoires don't go back that far.
Matt: Can you ask those dead witches that helped you before?
Bonnie: I don't have contact with them anymore... They cut me off when I brought Jeremy back to life. That's it! I can't contact the dead. Jeremy can.
[Middle of Nowhere]
(Katherine and Damon are sitting. Jeremy's still uncouscious)
Damon: I'm listening.
Katherine: What if I told you there was a way to kill Klaus? And not Dagger dead. Dead dead.
Damon: I'd say you were desperate and lying. Or drunk. Or desperate, lying and drunk.
Katherine: Do you remember my friend Pearl?
Katherine: Centuries ago, she told me about a vampire who knew how to kill Klaus. Then she wouldn't tell me any more.
Damon: Well, why not?
Katherine: Because it was her leverage. She knew it was valuable information, and wouldn't share it with me.
Damon: Well, this is all great... But she's dead.
Katherine: Which is why I never brought it up. Because she only ever told one other person.
Katherine: Her daughter. Anna.
Damon: Also dead.
Katherine: Which brings us right back around to...
(Jeremy wakes up)
Jeremy: To me. Back around to me.
[Mystic Falls High School]
(Elena is comforting Dana. Stefan enters the gym)
Klaus: Come to save your damsel, mate?
Stefan: I came to ask for your forgiveness. And pledge my loyalty.
Klaus: Well, you broke that pledge once already.
Stefan: Elena means nothing to me anymore. And whatever you ask of me... I will do.
Klaus: Fair enough. Let's drink on it. Kill them. What are you waiting for? Kill them.
Elena: No! Stefan, don't. He's not going to hurt me. He already said...
(Klaus hits her so hard that she falls on the floor. Stefan rushes over to Klaus, his fangs out. Klaus grabs him by the throat.)
Klaus: She means nothing to you? Your lies just keep piling up.
Stefan: Let her go! I'll do whatever you want, you have my word!
Klaus: Your word doesn't mean much. I lived by your word all summer, during which time I never had to resort to this...
(He compels him)
Klaus: Stop fighting.
Stefan: Don't do this, don't do this.
Klaus: I didn't want to. All I wanted was your allegiance. Now I'm going to have to take it.
(Klaus compels him)
Klaus: You will do exactly as I say when I say it. You will not run, you will not hide, you will simply just obey.
Elena: No. Stefan!
Klaus: Now kill them. Ripper.
(Stefan vamps out, rushes over to Dana and kills her by drinking her blood)
[Middle of Nowhere]
Jeremy: This isn't going to work.
(A cellphone vibrates. Katherine looks at it, it's a message from Bonnie)
Katherine: I think that your witchy girlfriend's worried that you've run away with your ghostly lover.
Damon: Stop with the teeny bopper drama. Focus.
(Jeremy focuses and Anna appears)
Anna: I'm not helping them.
Jeremy: No, it's ok to help.
(Katherine and Damon look at each other 'cause they can't see her)
Jeremy: They're looking for a way to stop Klaus.
Anna: I don't care. Katherine is not a friend to you. Neither of them are.
Damon: What's she saying?
Jeremy: Well, she doesn't want to help you.
(Katherine whispers to Damon)
Katherine: My advice? If you want to make an omelet, you have to break a few eggs.
(Damon gets closer to Jeremy)
Damon: Jeremy, I just want you to know, it's nothing personal.
(He takes Jeremy head and hits it against the table)
Jeremy: Ow! What the hell?!
Damon: Anna, I know you can hear me. Tell us what you know. The sooner, the better for your little boyfriend here.
Anna: They're looking for Mikael.
Katherine: Mikael. Is that his name?
Damon: Who's Mikael?
Anna: The vampire who hunts vampires. You don't want to wake him. He will kill all of you.
Damon: What's she saying?
Jeremy: He's a vampire and a Hunter, and you guys would be idiots to wake him.
(He looks at Anna)
Jeremy: What do you mean, wake him?
Damon: It's time to go find the keys.
[Mystic Falls High School]
(Caroline wakes up. Rebekah has her phone)
Rebekah: We didn't have mobile telephones in my day. Would have made life a whole lot easier, I suppose.
(She takes a picture of herself)
Caroline: Where's Tyler?
Rebekah: He's dead. Ish.
(Caroline sees him)
Caroline: What did you do to him?
Rebekah: Think of it as he's having a nap. When he wakes up, he'll be a hybrid.
(She looks at pictures and sees a picture of Stefan and Elena)
Rebekah: Ugh. Vomit.
(Suddenly she sees the necklace around Elena's neck)
Rebekah: Is that my neck...
(She zooms in on the necklace)
Rebekah: Why is that doppelgänger bitch wearing my necklace?!
(Stefan is feeding on Chad)
Klaus: It's always nice to see a vampire in his true element. The species has become such a broody lot.
Elena: No. You did this to him.
Klaus: I invited him to the party, love. He's the one dancing on the table.
(Rebekah enters and rushes toward Elena)
Rebekah: Where is it?! Where's my necklace?
Klaus: What are you talking about?
Rebekah: She has my necklace. Look.
(She gives him the phone so he can see the picture)
Klaus: Well, well. More lies.
Rebekah: Where...is it?
Elena: I don't have it anymore.
Rebekah: You're lying!
(She vamps out and bites Elena but Klaus stops her and takes her apart)
Klaus: Knock it off!
Rebekah: Make her tell me where it is, Nik!
(Klaus looks at Elena. She has her hand on her neck)
Klaus: Where's the necklace, sweetheart? Be honest.
Elena: I'm telling the truth. Katherine stole it.
Klaus: Katerina. Of course. Well, that's unfortunate. If we had the necklace it would make things a whole lot easier for your witch, but since we're doing this the hard way, let's put a clock on it, shall we?
(He puts the clock. There's a buzzer sound when the clock appears on the board)
Klaus: 20 minutes. If Bonnie hasn't found a solution by then, I want you to feed again. Only this time, I want you to feed on Elena. You know you want to.
Elena: No, Klaus! Don't do this to him!
Klaus: No one leaves. If she tries to run, fracture her spine.
(Rebekah looks at them and leaves with Klaus)
(Matt is on the gym room and on the phone with Bonnie)
Matt: Did you find Jeremy?
Bonnie: No! I called him like 20 times.
Matt: All right, I'll grab my keys, we'll head to his house.
Bonnie: Ok. I'll meet you by your truck.
(He hangs up. His stuff has been thrown around all over the room.)
Matt: What the hell?
(He looks in his bag but doesn't find what he's looking for so he goes to the pool. His keys are at the bottom of the pool.)
Matt: You've got to be kidding me!
(He takes his jacket off and removes his shoes. Vicki's behind but he can't see her)
Vicki: Matt! I can help, Matty, but I need you to hear me.
(She kicks one of his shoes into the pool. Matt just sees the shoe going in the water. He looks at his phone and sees a text from an unknown)
Matt: Whoa! Vicki?
(He calls Bonnie)
Bonnie: What is taking so long?
(Matt is carrying an iron belt and a weight)
Matt: This is going to sound crazy, but I think Vicki's trying to reach out to me.
Matt: I think she can help us save Tyler.
Bonnie: No, Jeremy can help us save Tyler.
Matt: We can't find Jeremy. We need to try something else. I have an idea but I'm going to need your help. Meet me at the pool.
Bonnie: I don't understand.
Matt: Jeremy can see ghosts because you brought him back from the dead. I need you to do that for me.
Bonnie: What?! No, Matt, that's crazy!
Matt: This is going to work, trust me.
Bonnie: No, Matt, I can't do that kind of magic anymore.
Matt: You don't need magic, Bonnie. You just have to be better than I was at CPR.
(He puts the belt down and attaches the weight to it so when he jumps in the water he stays at the bottom.)
(Bonnie runs and enters the pool area. She sees Matt, jumps in the water removes the belt from Matt and gets him out of the water.)
[Middle of Nowhere]
(Jeremy is falling asleep)
Damon: Don't fall asleep, Jer. You might have a concussion.
Jeremy: Thanks for the concern, dick.
Katherine: Oh, stop pouting. He took one for the team. Everyone back home will thank you once Klaus is dead.
Damon: Where's my phone?
Katherine: Do you need to check in with Elena? Make sure it's ok you pummeled her little baby bro?
Damon: You know you have it.
Katherine: What can I say? I needed you present here and now.
Damon: Katherine, phone, now.
(She sighs and gives it to him; He looks at it)
Damon: Bonnie's been texting me.
Jeremy: What is it?
Damon: It's Klaus.
Katherine: No turning back, Damon.
Damon: Shut up, Katherine.
Katherine: Hey, look at the big picture. The best shot at taking out Klaus is by finding Mikael.
(Damon looks at Jeremy and gives the keys)
Damon: Stay with her so Anna can guide you. I'm going back.
Katherine: You're going to get yourself killed. The Damon I remember wouldn't have been that stupid.
Damon: I wouldn't have done it for you.
[Mystic Falls High School]
(Bonnie is trying to save Matt)
Bonnie: Matt, please! I can't do this. There's nothing else I can do!
(Matt is in between and can see Vicki)
Vicki: Matt. Matt!
Vicki: Matt. Please!
Matt: I can see you.
Vicki: I need you to listen to me very carefully. I don't have much time.
Matt: Why, what's happening? Where are we?
Vicki: It doesn't matter. I need you to give Bonnie a message.
(He wakes up and spits out water. Bonnie sits him upright.)
Bonnie: It's ok. You're ok.
(Stefan and Elena are still in the gym. There's 6 minutes left on the clock)
Elena: Caroline's dad! Stefan, he was able to resist compulsion. I don't know how, but he did it. Maybe it's possible.
Stefan: Yeah, yeah. Maybe it's just mind control, right? Maybe it just takes some focus, a couple decades of training. No big deal.
Elena: Stefan, you can control this. When that buzzer goes off, just... just drink from me.
Stefan: You don't get it. I can't stop, Elena! I'm a ripper! A ripper doesn't stop! I listen to the words that come out of your mouth, and all I hear is the sound of your heart pumping blood through your body. And when that clock ticks down... I'm going to have to feed on you. And you want to know what's worse? I'm not going to be able to stop.
Elena: I don't believe that. You can fight it. You just have to want it bad enough.
Stefan: Why, because I love you?
Elena: Yeah! That's right, Stefan. Because you love me. You'll fight because after everything that we've been through, you owe me that!
Stefan: You know what, you're right. You're right. I owe you everything. Because through all of this, you are the one thing that has kept me from giving up; from turning it all off. But I can't help what I am, Elena. The more blood that I get, the more I want, and if I get so much as near yours... You are dead.
(Caroline, Tyler and Rebekah are in a classroom. Tyler wakes up)
Tyler: Where am I? What happened?
Rebekah: Don't be shy about it.
Tyler: What's going on?
Caroline: Klaus is turning you into a vampire. A hybrid. You're in transition.
Rebekah: Don't leave out the hard part, sweets. You'll only survive if your witch is successful. If not... You're pretty much dead.
Caroline: You're going to be ok. Ok? It's going to be ok.
Rebekah: I wonder how she's doing.
(She looks at the clock on the phone)
Rebekah: Tick tock goes the gym clock.
(Matt and Bonnie are in the hallway)
Bonnie: As soon as you're feeling better, I'm going to kill you.
Matt: It worked. I saw her, I saw Vicki.
Bonnie: You did?
Matt: She said she had a message for you.
Bonnie: For me?
Matt: From the witch that put the hybrid curse on Klaus. She said that Elena shouldn't have survived Klaus' ritual. The hybrids can't transition because Elena's still alive.
Matt: He's going to die, isn't he?
Klaus: I wouldn't be too sure about that.
(He's behind them, against the wall)
Klaus: Given the choice, doppelgänger or a hybrid, I go hybrid every time.
(There's only a few seconds left on the clock)
Stefan: Elena, you're going to have run.
Elena: But Klaus said that if I run...
Stefan: I know what he said, but if you stay, it won't matter. Elena, please, please, please. Elena, there's no other way.
Elena: There is another way, Stefan. It's for you to fight.
(The buzzer makes a sound. The time has passed)
Elena: Stefan... I love you. Fight, Stefan. Don't give up.
Stefan: I can't hold it.
(He vamps out and rushes over to Elena. She screams. But he holds onto the wall)
Stefan: Elena, run! Go!
(She runs through the school. Stefan holds on to everything he can so he doesn't have to hurt Elena. She opens a door and falls into Klaus)
Klaus: We've got to stop meeting like this.
(Stefan enters the cafeteria and takes a stakes and drives it through his body. Klaus enters with Elena)
Klaus: Now this is fascinating. I've never seen this before. The only thing stronger than your craving for blood is your love for this one girl. Why don't you turn it off?
Klaus: Come on. Your humanity is killing you. All the guilt must be exhausting. Turn it off.
Klaus: You're strong.
(He removes the stake from Stefan's body)
Klaus: But you're not that strong. Turn...it... Off.
(He pushes Klaus. But Klaus pushes him against the wall, compels him and yells)
Klaus: Turn it off!
(Stefan's face and look change.)
Elena: What did you do?
Klaus: I fixed him. But I think a test is in order, don't you?
(He goes behind Elena and looks at Stefan)
Klaus: Ripper... Perhaps you'd like a drink.. From the doppelgänger's neck?
(Stefan's face changes and he rushes over to Elena and bites her neck. She screams)
(Klaus enters the classroom Rebekah, Tyler and Caroline are in)
Klaus: Well, the verdict's in. The original witch says the doppelgänger should be dead.
(Rebekah gets up and seems happy)
Rebekah: Does that mean we can kill her?
Klaus: No, I'm fairly certain it means the opposite.
Klaus: Call it a hunch...
(He shows a test tube containing blood to Tyler. Rebekah holds Caroline so she can't move)
Klaus: Elena's blood. Drink it.
Caroline: No! No, no, no, Tyler, don't!
Klaus: If he doesn't feed, he'll die anyway, love. Consider this an experiment.
(Tyler struggles but he finally drinks it)
Klaus: There we go. Good boy.
(Tyler suddenly is hurting. He screams and groans and writhes. He holds his head and screams but his face finally change. His eyes are yellow, he has fangs and veins under his eyes)
Klaus: Well, that's a good sign.
[Mystic Falls Hospital]
(Elena wakes up in a bed, in the hospital. A nurse is with her)
Elena: Where am I?
Nurse: In the hospital, sweetie. You suffered through a terrible ordeal.
Elena: I have to get out of here.
Nurse: Ah. Not an option. You've lost a lot of blood.
(Elena sees a blood bag next to her)
Elena: Wait... You're taking my blood?
Nurse: Of course. It's very important for your friend Klaus.
(Elena freaks out but the nurse injects her with sedatives)
Nurse: Don't fight it, sweetie. He told me you need plenty of rest.
(Elena falls asleep)
(Klaus and Rebekah are in front of the hospital)
Rebekah: So the doppelgänger isn't the problem. Her blood is the solution.
Klaus: Seems so.
Rebekah: How did you know?
Klaus: Well, you know how much the original witch hated me. Do you honestly think I would do anything other than the opposite of what she says?
Rebekah: A thousand years in the grave and she's still screwing with you.
Klaus: Well, it makes sense if you think about it from her perspective. It was her failsafe in case I ever broke the hybrid curse. The doppelgänger had to die in order for me to become a hybrid, but if she was dead...
Rebekah: Then you couldn't use her blood to sire yourself a new species.
Klaus: Leaving me alone for all time.
Rebekah: Is that what this is about? Your obsession with hybrids. You just don't want to be alone?
Klaus: What I want is to take my girl, take my hybrid the hell out of this one pony town. You know, why don't you, uh, why don't you get the truck? I'll get Elena.
(She leaves. Damon arrives)
Klaus: Well, look who finally decided to show up to the party.
Damon: Where is she?
Klaus: Elena? Ah, she's making a donation to a greater cause.
(Damon goes toward the hospital but Klaus stops him)
Klaus: I'm afraid I can't let you interfere, mate.
Damon: You'll have to kill me.
Klaus: Oh, I would love to kill you, but I made a pledge to your brother, and unlike him, I keep my word. Although, you know what, thinking about it now, he probably doesn't care that much anymore.
(He pushes Damon against a car and is about to kill him)
Damon: Don't you want to know about your friend Mikael?
Klaus: What do you know about Mikael?
Damon: Just that he knows you're here.
Klaus: You're bluffing.
Damon: Katherine and I found him. Consider it our leverage.
(Klaus throws him on the ground. When Damon gets up, Klaus' has disappeared. Damon goes toward the hospital)
(Damon is in the hallway, looking for Elena. He finally finds her. She's asleep, he looks at her and pulls out the pipes in Elena's arm. He looks at the pipe which was pumping out her blood and she wakes up)
(He takes her out of the bed and carries her out of the room)
[Mystic Falls High School]
(Caroline and Tyler are in the hallway)
Caroline: Are you sure you're ok?
Tyler: I'm great, Caroline. I mean, like, phenomenal. It's a rush. I wish I could explain it. Everything's just... Better.
(He takes her in his arms and spins her around. She laughs. Then he kisses her)
Tyler: This is going to be an amazing year.
(He embraces her. She seems worried)
(Bonnie rejoins Matt in the Gym room)
Bonnie: Hey. You ready? I could still use a ride over to Jeremy's.
Matt: Yeah, just a sec.
Bonnie: Listen to me. I know you want to help, and I know you miss your sister. But what you did was reckless and stupid.
Matt: I know. Bonnie. I know. But it worked. It was worth it.
Bonnie: You don't want to be a part of all this, Matt. You are the only one of us who actually gets to live your life like a normal person, no matter how lost you feel. Don't forget that.
Matt: I get it, Bonnie. I'll be out in a minute, ok? Vicki's here. Watching me, and I just, uh, I just need a minute to say good-bye, ok?
(She leaves but somebody's behind him. He thinks it's Bonnie)
Matt: Bon, seriously, I'm not going to do anything stupid, I just...
(He turns his head and sees Vicki)
(She sits down next to him)
Vicki: Hi, Matty.
(Damon gives Elena a glass of scotch)
Damon: Hey, have some bourbon. It'll help you forget.
(She drinks but doesn't seem to like it)
Damon: Yeah, it's strong. You know I can help you forget, too. At least the memories you don't want to keep.
Elena: No. No compulsion. I need to remember. All of it.
(He shows her her necklace)
Damon: I stole it back for you.
Elena: He's really gone this time. I watched it happen. After everything that we went through to get... to help him. Now he's just... Gone. Where were you, Damon?
(He puts his hand on her leg)
Damon: I shouldn't have left. I promise you... I will never leave you again.
(They look at each other)
Stefan: Well, isn't this cozy?
(They both look at him. Damon gets up. They're surprised)
Damon: What are you doing here, brother?
Stefan: Last I checked, I live here. Klaus is gone, but he's asked me to keep watch on you until he returns. From now on, you're under my protection.
(He looks at Elena)
Stefan: Mmm, by all means. Carry on.
(He leaves. Damon and Elena look at each other)
(Katherine and Jeremy are in front of a crypt)
Katherine: How do you know that Anna wasn't tricking you?
Jeremy: This is the place. It's the oldest wing of the largest cemetery in Charlotte. She said that a witch entombed him here in the nineties.
(They look through the door. There's a tomb)
Jeremy: Look there.
(Katherine opens the double doors. She looks at the tomb and opens it. Mikael is in it, mummified and chained up. As soon as the tomb is opened, he opens his eyes)
