Elena starts assembling wolfsbane grenades, but Damon tries to take them from her. When she protests that Alaric showed her how to do it, Damon slaps her hand and points out that if one explodes during assembly, he's the only one of the two of them who heals quickly. Stefan mocks them, saying he hopes their plan is better than this. Damon: "The less you know, the better." Stefan says he's cynical of their planning abilities. "If I look back at our history of epic plan failures, it's usually because one of us let our humanity get in the way, so if I'm taking odds on how this thing goes down, it's certainly not going to be me who screws it up." Way to curse yourself to be the one who screws it up, Stef.
MFHS Exterior: Caroline and Tyler are decorating the outside of the already-psychedelic Volkswagen bus. Other students are milling around pretending they're doing anything useful, too. Shouldn't these people be decorating...oh let's say the space where the dance is going to be, or the hallways, or the main entrance to the school, rather than the stoner pit? Whatever. The point of this scene is this: Tyler suggests going for a "bite." Caroline tells him she has a thermos (the "full of blood" bit is implied) in her bag. Tyler wants a real bite and says Rebekah knows people who enjoy getting suck jobs from vampires. They don't even need to be compelled. [Riley's in Mystic Falls? --Buffy]
Caroline is majorly annoyed. She tells Tyler, "Okay, first of all, I finally almost just got your mother to stop hating me, so I probably don't want to get caught in some weird vampire threesome with her son. And secondly, quit hanging out with Rebekah the evil blood slut." Tyler then mentions that Rebekah is going to be Matt's date. Caroline is ticked, and says this is some weird familial extension of his sire-bond to Klaus. Tyler points out that he's covered in glitter, and hanging streamers for her. "If I'm sired to anyone, it's you."
Mossy Manse: Rebekah isn't just a 1,000 year old Original vampire. She is, as Elena proved last week, a teenaged girl. She's already dressed for the Homecoming dance and confesses to Elena that it's her first high school dance, which makes sense, since...ancient Viking and all. Rebekah asks if things are in motion, but doesn't want to know details. She just wants to go to the dance and leave the rest to MtVVS. She warns Elena to be careful. "I've been running for a thousand years for a reason. Mikael is not a good person, and he definitely can't be trusted -- no one in my family can." In a sweet way, I almost feel like she's giving Elena permission for what's soon to come.
