Mayoral Mansion; Event of the Week: Carol Lockwood introduces Elijah to Damon. The vamps glare at each other, and I don't know about you, but I think I just spiked a fever. We're not going to be able to keep Elijah, are we? Sniff.
Grill: Caroline watches from a table as Bonnie flirts up a storm with Junior Manwitch. Jeremy arrives, so Care Bear updates him on Bonnie's progress, but when she says Bonnie is giving Junior "the sex smile," Jeremy snaps, "All right, Caroline. I've got it." Caroline twigs to his crush immediately, but who wouldn't. Meanwhile, Junior sucks down his frappuccino -- his frappuccino with a shot of witch roofie, and he's going, going, gone. Jeremy hops into action and catches Junior before he hits the floor, and he, Bonnie and Caroline drag their mark out. And this scene right here, is why the episode didn't get an A+ from me. It was dumb to have this happen at the Grill, in front of a crowd. When no one notices this guy passing out and being dragged out by a bunch of teenagers, I am taken right out of the moment. They should have at least had him and Bonnie walk outside, first.
Gilbert Getaway Dock: Is Elena in an oversized poncho? No, which I guess is good, except that she is wrapped in a blanket. Yeah. Out on the dock. All righty. Anyhow, she tells Stefan about little memories of her childhood summers there, like the time Jeremy broke his arm, and how her dad taught her how to fish. She then asks if he ever thinks about them, what their future will be, and what their memories will be. Stefan says they need to have some conversations about their future, but Elena's not ready to talk about that, yet. She needs to be in the moment. Stefan complies and points out they're making a memory now, then whispers his love for her. I'd gotten so far into the recent Damon/Elena build up, that I'd forgotten how much I love Stefan and Elena's love story, too.
Mayoral Mansion: Alaric and John pull out the ruler and start measuring, which is hilarious. But the conversation is mostly here for John to pull rank, since he's Elena's bio-dad. He doesn't want Alaric sleeping over with Jenna, any more. Also, he wants his magical life-saving protecto ring back, which means it's going to come into play before the episode is over. Maybe John will die? Die John. Die! I should mention, I think Anders does a great job in this role. That's the problem; John is such a dick -- a point Alaric makes with relish, by the way.
