Damon: I find Elena crossing the foyer, and ask her if she got what she wanted.
Damon: So then, I manhandle her and tell her we're leaving.
Elena: He's totally too rough with me, so I shake him off and tell him I'm sorry for cutting him out of the plan. I don't like going behind your back, Damon, but if I hadn't, you would have tried to play the hero, and ruined everything.
Damon: Excuse me for caring if you live or die, and RESPECTING THE SANCTITY OF A TEEN GIRL'S CELL PHONE, unlike oh say, STEFAN.
Elena: Now you're mad at me for including Stefan?
Damon: No, I'm mad at you, because I love you.
Record Needle: *SCRATCH*
Elena: I'm taken aback by this, but finally say, "Well, maybe that's the problem." Then Damon dials the crazy eyes up from 11 to 22, so I add, "No. That's not what I--"
Elena: I want to say something, but before I can, Caroline comes up and asks where Matt is.
Recapper: Before we get to the Matt scene, I just want to say that I know this episode discouraged some of the fans who want to see Elena and Damon together. I am one of you. I wouldn't call myself a shipper, because I'm not particularly devoted, but I feel like I've already had enough of the Stefan/Elena love story, for a while. Dobrev and Somerhalder have fantastic chemistry. I want to see more than a kiss on the front porch. That said, one of the reasons why this episode doesn't make me lose heart, is that the argument Damon and Elena just had? That was totally a couple's argument. Okay, let's carry on.
Upstairs, a creepy, supernatural voice whispers Matt's name. Matt follows it out to the balcony, where he meets Kol. Kol feigns civility for a moment, and then starts crushing Matt's hand in his.
Damon: I appear in the doorway, all, "Hey, hey, hey. Easy on the hand. Guy's a quarterback.
Recapper: As I said in the recaplet, Damon picks the sanest times to go crazy, so he shoves Kol off the balcony, then jumps off it, himself, and just pummels the crap out of Kol. I love you, Damon.
