Elijah has Jenna convinced he's doing a research project on Mystic Falls. As soon as he's out the door, Elena runs up the stairs and pounds on Jeremy's door to tell him Elijah has been invited in, but Elijah has somehow snuck back in and Stealth-Salvatored up the stairs. He cautions Elena to be discreet, so as Elijah hides behind the corner, she lies to Germ that Jenna needs his help with the boxes. Once Jeremy is gone, Elijah compliments Elena on her good sense.
Lockwood Ruins Dungeon: Tyler's half-naked with a chain wrapped around his neck. I'll give you a moment to enjoy the view. You ready? Okay, here's another moment. Enough, people. Rewind it on your own time. Tyler's starting to feel edgy and knows from Mason's journal that he can transform before the moon hits its apex, so he decides to drink the wolfsbane to diminish his strength and promptly pukes. As he chokes and suffers, he tries to warn Caroline off, but she stays right with him. Boy, this is going to be a good triangle.
Gilbert Gables: Elijah tells Elena he killed the vampires at Slater's last week because he didn't want her to be taken. Satan Klaus is the most hated and feared Original, and other vampires are desperate for his approval. Elijah's goal is not to break the curse. He says that Satan Klaus is a paranoid, obsessive recluse, and Elena figures out pretty quickly that Elijah doesn't know where Klaus is, and is trying to use her as bait. He tells her that if she lives her life and stops fighting, then when the time is right, the two of them can draw Klaus out, together, and then Elijah will kill him. He promises none of her friends will be harmed. Like her, he has magical friends and says together they can protect everyone. When he asks if they have a deal, Elena says she needs one more thing before she'll agree.
Casa Manwitch Rooftop: Bonnie and Luka light a gajillion candles, and then Bonnie produces the moonstone, but won't tell Luka what it's for. Then they do a spell. And yeah, it's sort of a lot like a Tara/Willow spell, if you know what I'm saying, and I think you do. Candles flicker and flare. The moonstone floats and seems to explode like fireworks. Oh, this boy is crooked, I'll tell you what.
Lockwood Dungeon: Tyler is in absolute agony. I want to wrap him in a blanket and feed him warm chocolate pudding. So I guess I'm calling him Pudding Pup from now on. He cries and moans. And just -- I have to tip my hat to Trevino here, and not for his fine physique, this time. It's his acting. He reaches a really vulnerable place in this scene as he's crying out, "It hurts." He sounds so young and scared. Not a lot of guys his age would play it this way. It's perfect. Kudos to the director, too.
