Grill: Damon's still trying to get THS to drink. When she finally agrees, the camera cuts away, so it's not clear to me if she just sniffs it, or not. Her lips look like she took a little sip, but reader Erin (hi Erin!) is pretty sure she just sniffs it. Whether or not she drinks it, Damon's plan sort of works, because THS slams the drink down on the bar, calls Damon a fool, reveals she sniffed him out as a vamp right away, and outs herself as a werewolf. She repeats that she wants to know where Mason is. Damon sneers that she probably won't find him, and then warns her to leave town. THS is not amused. "Are you threatening me? On a full moon? How stupid are you?" Oh, THS, he is very stupid. Actually, he's more impulsive than stupid. But his impulsiveness makes him do stupid things, so I can see where you'd get that impression. Alaric wanders back over still playing drunk guy, but it's too late. THS warns that it's not the night to pick a fight with her, and says, "You've been marked." And I've taken an informal poll of two other friends who watch the show (hi, Tippi and Mary Beth). We all agree that we immediately thought, "What are you going to do THS, pee on him?" Was it just us, readers? Was it just us?
Lockwood Dungeon: Caroline continues to try to help Tyler, but there's nothing to be done. His transformation gets more violent as even his skeleton starts to change. Tyler warns Caroline to get out, but she won't leave him. She holds his head in an effort to mitigate his suffering.
Grill: Damon and Alaric are leaving. Damon is pissed (ha) about the marking comment, but Alaric tries to reason with him by pointing out the full moon, and reminding him that just one bite might be fatal to him. He tells him to go home and lock his doors, and they'll deal with it in the morning. Right. Like a werewolf can't crash through a window.
Dungeon: Caroline encourages Tyler to fight through it and Tyler insists that she leaves, but she holds onto him until he breaks free of his chains. Then she flees and locks him in the cell. I was so afraid through this whole scene that he was going to bite her. As Tyler struggles to get out of the cell, Caroline cries and says she's sorry. Finally, she shuts a wooden door behind her and waits outside and Tyler continues to transform. This is the best werewolf transformation I've ever seen. Way better than Jacob Black's fursplosion. Outside, when Caroline can no longer hear Tyler struggling, she rises to her feet. Then he starts biting through the wooden door. She props a branch up against it and speeds back up above ground, and watches from a safe place. I tell her to climb a tree, but she ignores me.
