Fandom: Wait. I think Elijah didn't drink. He faked that drink, right? He totally faked it.
Recapper: Sorry, loves. Julie Plec has confirmed that even Elijah drank. What I'm wondering, is if everyone at the party got a little Elena Essence, or at least, if all our key players (besides the Originals) did. There's no was Esther can be on the up and up, right? I mean, she's Eloise Fricking Hawking, and I'm pretty sure blood spells are never good news.
Klaus: Come upstairs, and let me show you my etchings.
Caroline: Really? Actually, they're pretty wonderful.
Klaus: You're making me all aw-shucksy. Did I mention I have a landscape hanging at the Hermitage -- not that anyone would notice. Have you been? I'll take you anywhere. Rome. Paris. Tokyo?
Caroline: Okay, you're totally bedazzling me despite myself, so I'm going to come right back at you with a bit of truth about collecting a hybrid servant army. Stop controlling Tyler. Give him his life back.
Klaus: Time for you to leave.
Caroline: Your daddy didn't love you, so you think no one will. You compel, sire, and try to buy off people. I'm ripping off this bracelet right now, and slapping it down on the table. You don't connect with people, because you don't try to understand them. Watch me as I swan out.
Klaus: Technically, shouldn't you strip off the dress, too?
Audience: *Standing ovation*
Back at the ball, Kol is bummed he and Becky didn't kill Matt. Becky lies that she didn't want to ruin her mother's night. Kol mocks her for being predictable -- softening after five seconds of attention. Rebekah tells him not to be rude -- just to leave Matt be. Kol, in a futile attempt to win me over, says, "As you wish," but he can just talk to the hand -- preferably his own.
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.
