Elijah licks his lips. The fandom passes out. When we recover, we hear Elijah tell Stefan to, "Put her on the phone." Stefan says Rebekah is with Damon and Katherine. Elijah demands to know where they are. Stefan tells him, "Relax. No one's going to get hurt, as long as Katherine hands over the cure." Elijah says Rebekah despises Kiki. She'll kill her the moment she's no longer useful. Stefan wants to meet and talk "this" through. Elijah ignores him. "You listen to me very carefully, Stefan. If anything whatsoever happens to Katherine, I will descend upon Elena." He hangs up the phone.
Elena tells Elijah, "You're both idiots." Elijah: "Excuse me?" Elena: "Ugh. What happened to you, Elijah? I thought you were supposed to be a man of honor, and yet you've been hooking up with Katherine this entire time?" Elijah supposes he has always shared a connection with Kiki. I think it's the awesomeness connection. Elijah doesn't comment on that, because he's too modest. Instead, he tells Elena, "She contacted me when she learned about the cure. We thought we could be of mutual use to one another."
Elena laughs that Elijah fell for the Katherine-trap like the rest of the idiots. Somewhere, Stefan and Damon feel the shout-out, but don't know its origin. Elijah turns to face Elena. "You underestimate me, Elena. I know who she is. I know what she's done." Elena insists Katherine is playing him and lying to him. Elijah notes she didn't lie about Elena's transformation. "You're not just a vampire though, are you? There's something else. You're not yourself. You've abandoned your emotions. Why?" Elena's voice is flat as she answers, "My brother is dead. Your girlfriend killed him." Elena is surprised at Elijah's shock. I wonder if he knows she and Jeremy killed Kol. I hope not, because otherwise, it should have come up, right? As Elijah tries to come to terms with Katherine's deceit, Elena rubs her "I told you so," in his face, and tops it off with a, "Duh," which is probably not all that effective on a 1,000 year old immortal. We cut to...
Katherine's House. After Damon warns Katherine against tricks or any other, "Katherine-ing," he mocks that she has a quilt and a fish tank. Rebekah sums up Katherine as, "A very old lady, with dreadful taste." Katherine opens her safe and tells the duo the cure is gone. She puts on a pretty good show, but Rebekah and Damon aren't falling for it. Katherine tries to make like they don't know what a treacherous wench she is. She's so misunderstood! Damon essentially calls her shallow. Rebekah swoops towards Katherine but Damon holds her off and reminds her they still need the cure. He tells Rebekah to check upstairs while he checks the first floor.
