The Grill: The party is really cranking. Caroline hunts Bonnie down and tells her she needs her crystal back. Bonnie's not so willing to return it now, so Caroline tells her the most horrible lie any character has ever told another character on a WB/CW show. I mean really, disgusting, awful. If anyone said this to Caroline, she'd take to her tub, slit open her veins and go like an old Roman. I... I hesitate to repeat it, here, but what choice do I have. "It makes you look fat." Bonnie knows she's all that and a bag of non-fat baked chips, so Caroline's manipulation amounts to squat. What's more, she knows Caroline doesn't want it back for herself -- but for Damon, so she refuses to hand it over. Caroline reaches for it, and gets zapped. "Ouch. Are you wearing polyester?" Awesome. Bonnie is appalled that Caroline was going to rip the amulet off her neck, and I get that -- I do, but putting that aside, Caroline absolutely zero understanding of the amulet's significance to Bonnie, so I can understand her anger (if not her actions), too.
Stefan enters and runs into Matt. He stops him and begs for a moment to plead his case. He was just trying to help Vicki. He's been through something similar. He's sorry. Of course, that's not one-tenth of the story, but it's all poor Matt is going to get. Matt says, "Turns out Vicki is just like her mother. I can't count on either of them." Curious wording there: her mother. Poor Pudding Pop. He thanks Stefan for trying, and walks off. And you know, I really like Stefan, but I hope he's nearly dying of guilt right now. If he had his way, Matt would be worrying about Vicki and wondering where she is for the rest of his life. It's not right. I get it, but it's bad, bad, very bad.
Caroline continues to patrol the party until she's stopped by Damon, who's still demanding his crystal. Don't get between this boy and his jewelry. Remember how he was to Stefan about his ring? Anyhow, Caroline tells him Bonnie won't give it back and mentions that when she tried to rip it off Bonnie's neck, it shocked her. Damon scowls. "Damn it, why does it do that?" He needs it and he wants it and it's all about him, so he's quite nasty to her. Caroline reminds him how good she is to him, and that she'd do anything for him, but that "it's just a stupid necklace." Damon tells her that she's stupid. And shallow. And useless. He might as well have drained her blood.
