Damon: I do not need a woman for pleasure. I am spoken for.
Recapper: Ha. By Katherine? You poor, delusional fool.
Sage: We are all spoken for, in some way, but what is being a vampire, if not relishing in the pleasure of it?
She leads him out of the woods and back to the boxing ring, where she points out the women in the room. There are the floozies whom Sage deems too hungry for attention, then turns his attention to the more buttoned up ladies like Mariana Lockwood and says those are the women who secretly crave seduction. She tells him to win them over and make them beg for it. If they don't, since he's a vampire he can just take it. So yes, we have a female vampire educating a male vampire on the art of raping the women he's eventually going to kill. I've gotta go throw up. Be right back.
Eventually, Sage settles on Samantha Gilbert. When she points her out to Damon, she says, "Her." Damon starts to approach Samantha. When he hesitates, Sage gives him the nod and a knowing look. And after a few moments of conversation, Damon changes his 48 year old decision to loathe his vampirism and his decision to remain faithful to Katherine. Ugh. Don't take that the wrong way. I don't think Damon should remain faithful to Kiki, but here's a man who has held a 48-year grudge against his beloved brother. He changes his life after a conversation? This is entirely too facile.
Back in the present, Becky says that definitely sounds like the Sage she knew, who happened to have a thing for Finn 900 years ago. Sheeeesh, do the Originals have to be all up in every story? Anyhow, Stefan's got the jitters and says he has to leave. I thought booze was supposed to take the edge off the craving for blood. It's like no one remembers the rules anymore. Damon will let Stefan go if he'll just admit he's jonesing. After Damon grabs him, Stefan admits it then frees himself and starts out.
Nitpicky Sidebar: Since we've recently seen Stefan ignore a glass full of blood, without getting jittery, this sudden jonesing irks me a little -- not enough to say anything more than that, but I did have to get that off my chest.
Back in Meredith's apartment, Elena goes through the file on Alaric and says there's all kinds of stuff on him, including medical records and old court documents (so I guess the fights and restraining orders might have happened). Matt then finds an old journal -- it's Samantha Gilbert's. Matt finds another paper and asks Elena if M.E. Brian's death was between 1:00 and 3:00 AM. The paper he's holding from the county coroner's office states that's wrong. Just then, they hear Meredith return home so the kids hide in the closet. Meredith comes in, throws down her keys and purse, changes and picks up her keys and leaves. Elena turns the closet light on and she opens the door. Meredith is standing there, glaring. Commercial.
