Alaric's Apartment: I love that Klaus is still squatting there. Poor Alaric, huh? As Stefan recovers from being staked, Klaus makes it clear that he knows of Stefan's past as a ripper. Backstory: In 1917, Stefan wiped out an entire migrant village in Monterey. That is the vampire with whom Klaus will make a deal. Satan Klaus is a show-don't-tell kind of guy so he summons Katherine and bites her. He's a werewolf now too, remember so his bite is fatal to her. As Katherine cries, "No," Klaus bites into his own wrist and feeds his blood to Katherine. Her wound heals instantly. Klaus doesn't just have the cure. He is the cure. Stefan feels the need to state that outright. Why? I don't know. Let's leave these two boys to talk and check in on Damon.
Event O' The Week: Damon is stumbling around the square. While Atlanta burns up on the big screen, he hallucinates up a vision of Katherine in her 1864 finery. He's brought back to reality by Jeremy who helps him leave the square.
Sheriff's Office: Elena asks Liz where Damon is. Liz is still completely anti-vampire, which is a reasonable stance, yo, so she can't control her sneer as she reminds Elena that vampires are murderers. "But it's different, Liz. These murderers are beautiful and they love me." Paraphrase. Just then a deputy arrives and announces Damon was scene entering the grill. Elena begs to go with Liz, but Liz orders her deputy to keep Elena there.
Grill: Damon is hurting bad, now. Jeremy calls someone (Bonnie, I guess) and says he's with Damon at the Grill. Just then Liz enters and aims her gun at Damon. As she shoots, he Stealth-Salvatores out of her line of fire. The bullet pierces Jeremy's chest. He's all, "WTF, I love this shirt," before he collapses to the floor. As Liz makes a call for paramedics, Bonnie and Caroline rush in. Caroline thinks Jeremy will be okay because the ring mythology is really pretty stupid. I mean, if a person shoves you off a balcony, you're dead. If a vampire shoves you off a balcony, you're as right as rain? Come on. Bonnie pretends it's not stupid though, and reminds Caroline it won't work because a human shot the gun, not a vampire. Caroline rips into her own arm and tries to feed Jeremy her blood but he's already gone. Liz watches in confusion and horror. Harry Potter commercial.
