Bonnie's Bedroom. She and Jamie are still fully clothed. I mean, she even still has her necklace on. Bonnie wakes when the whispers start. Esther is there and says, "Your sisters need you to finish what I started, Bonnie." Just then, Jamie wakes Bonnie for real and tells her she was having a bad dream. Bonnie smiles and snuggles back down into his arms. Not-dream-them are still clothed. Bonnie never gets to have any fun.
Crypt. Ric's breath is shallow. He finally passes out. Damon cries and finishes off the bourbon. Outside, wispy clouds float past a full moon. When Damon sees Bonnie, he says, "What are you doing here?" She doesn't answer. She and her little bare feet walk past him, as she stares straight ahead. Damon: "Hey, Bonnie. What -- are you sleepwalking?" Bonnie turns around, raises her right hand and afflicts Damon with a mystical migraine.
When Bonnie enters the Salvatore crypt, she's carrying the new and improved Indestructo-Son of White Oak stake. Staring at Alaric, she uses the stake to stab herself in the palm. Kneeling beside Ric, she raises her bloody hand to his mouth. He drinks. Finally, eyes open, game face on, fangs out in full force, he grabs her and bites her neck. Once he's had his full, Vamparic lets Bonnie fall to the floor. Mouth dripping with blood, he grabs the new and improved Indestructo-Son of White Oak stake and rises to his feet. Dun dun DUN!
I'll be back with coverage of episode 3-21, "Before Sunset." In the meantime, please grade the episode up top and join us in the forum, where we're giving Ric a good Irish wake.
