Shane's office. Shane is encouraging Bonnie to meditate, but she's too upset that the spell she cast to protect Shane nearly killed April. Shane blathers some manipulation at her, but Bonnie's in a state, which is made clear when the candle between them flares. When Bonnie frets about not being able to control her magic, Shane says what will later prove to be the magic words. "Bonnie, look at me. I'm here with you. You don't have anything to worry about. You are strong. You are focused. You are in complete control." Now I'm bummed I already used a Stepford Wives reference because the Bonnie we know and love (or hate, as some of you do) really isn't at home when she echoes Shane.
Liz Forbes and a deputy bust into Shane's office. When the deputy handcuffs Shane, Shane reminds Liz the college isn't even in her jurisdiction. I wish I had time to go back and watch the episode in which Bonnie, Elena and Damon first visited Whitmore College. I remember that in watching it, I had the impression that it was a bit of a road trip, but I can't remember if anyone on the show ever said if it's actually outside of Mystic Falls. Given how regularly Bonnie is trotting over there, and how regularly Shane visits town, it would have been better to set the college on the outskirts of town. This business of Liz arresting Shane out of her jurisdiction is just insulting to the viewers, if you ask me. When Bonnie asks what's going on, the sheriff tells her to talk to her Interim Dad.
Damon arms Jeremy and they head into the Zanadew Lounge. Although the juke box is blaring, the place seems empty at first. There are beer bottles on the floor, upended bar stools and, since this is season gore, there's also an enormous blood stain. Damon and Jeremy walk through it, even as they follow it out to the kitchen, wherein they find an actual pile of freshly slain vampires. That's got to be a Board of Health violation.
Kol appears and confesses that he killed the baby vamps. Harkening back to their time in Colorado, Kol refers to Jeremy as his mate and says the three of them need to have a chat. Commercial.
Kol takes the Exposition Fairy wand. Once he's done waving it around, he raises the specter of Silas. I guess in a TVD recap, I should specify that last sentence is figurative. Anyhow, Kol says, "A few hundred years back, I came across a group that worshipped Silas. His followers told me that he would rise again, and when he did, he would trigger the end of all time. Being an immortal, you can see why I'm opposed to time's ending." Really? Don't you ever get sick of it, Kol? A thousand years is a good run. He ignores me and continues speechifying. Once upon a time, he murdered all of Silas's worshippers, and now he's got to deal with the Fellowship of the Falls, which may just raise Silas in their search for the cure.
