Klaus Haus. Elena grows weaker. She asks Klaus what he'll do about his hybrids. He'll need more blood than he can drain from her to create an army. Klaus says what he gets from her will have to suffice. Then he plagiarizes Stefan. "You see, by attempting to kill us, my mother strengthened the bond between my siblings and I. I don't need hybrids. I have my family." Elena knows pants on fire when she smells them. "If you believe that, then why take my blood at all? You want a backup family. You know that your siblings will never trust you again." Klaus bites back that Stefan blames him for coming between him and Damon. "But I think we both know who really came between them. You. That's why you won't choose. You know once you pick a Salvatore, you'll destroy that bond." He zoops over and gets up in her face. "Consider this me doing you a favor. Once you're dead, you won't have to choose. No broken hearts. Their family stays intact." Elena groans. Klaus continues: "But just between us girls, who would you have picked?" Elena tells Klaus to rot in hell. He replies, "You're welcome. Sweet dreams, Elena. It's been fun." Commercial.
After the break, Tyler finds Elena alone, struggling against her bonds. He rushes over and starts to untie her. Elena asks what he's doing. He shushes her and then Klaus returns to the room. "So much for that sire bond." Tyler: "I'm not your little bitch, anymore." YAY! Someone call Care Bear! When Klaus asks how he broke the bond, Tyler explains the forced transformations, and that he did it all for the girl he loves. Klaus says that's impossible. Tyler: "Is it? Or maybe real love is stronger than fake loyalty, but what would you know about that?" Klaus blabbers on about how he gave Tyler a gift by taking away his misery. Tyler yells, "You didn't give a crap about me. You just didn't want to be alone." He returns to Elena and starts to help her out of the chair. Klaus rushes at them, knocking the chair back. The camera lingers on Elena's head as it hits a table. I think she's knocked unconscious.
