Meanwhile, Lexi encourages Stefan to try moving his feet while dancing. Stefan laughs and cracks a joke. Amazing, I know. While they're occupied, Damon slips outside and takes a deep breath he shouldn't need. His vampyric hearing picks up on the sounds of a young couple who have never seen a horror film in their lives, and so are going to make out in a dark alleyway behind the restaurant. Buffy says, "What's the big? I had sex in an alley, once." Hush girl, I'd blocked that out. The couple unlocks lips long enough for the girl to ask the boy if he heard something, which makes me yearn for Darla. The boy can't hear anything other than the whoosh of all of his blood headed south of the equator, so he moves back in, and in a spectacular bit of camera work, it looks for a second like the boy has vamped out, and is taking a bite of the girl, but really, it's Damon sinking his teeth into the boy. Once the boy drops dead, Damon moves in for the girl, but rather than drain her dry, he enthralls her. Commercial.
The Grill: Stefan and Lexi are shooting pool and having a blast when Elena, who was totally going to stay in (as she said when Stefan dropped by to see why dropped by his house, after asking him to stay away from her, after telling him she never wanted to forget how much she feels for him baby -- Aaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrr) arrives at the Grill. She watches them jealously, from a distance. Damon comes back in and smiles a particularly evil smile when he sees them, and it only gets worse once he spots Elena. He walks to her side. "Stefan smiles. Alert the media." Can't, Damon. You and Vicki ate the media. You should drop by Faux News, sometime. Elena and Damon bicker for a moment about her self-righteousness and his psychopathy. But their hearts aren't in it. She starts to walk away, but then decides to take the opportunity to ask what exactly he did to Jeremy (who you'll remember was clean, sober, and studious). At first, Damon reiterates Elena's orders, but when she persists he says that Elena wanted him to take away Jeremy's suffering. Is it just me, or does that sound like step one in creating a sociopath? Elena seems to be with me. She looks uncomfortable as she takes in Damon's words, and well she should. Who has a monster mindwipe their little brother -- particularly without supervising said mindwipe?
