Look, there's Tyler, looking dapper in his 1920s Gangster get-up. Caroline freaks that he's there, because she's concerned that Klaus will learn Tyler is back in Mystic Falls. Tyler: "What's he going to do -- draw you another picture?" Heh. He assures her he can fake the sire bond if Klaus shows up. Caroline tells Tyler not to be jealous, but he is jealous. "I am also competitive." He teases that he's going to sweep her off her feet and then physically does just that, which makes me forget all about the secret Matt/Caroline 'shipping I was doing just a moment ago. This show is just so... look, something SHINY!
When Stefan and Elena arrive at the dance, she asks him to teach her some 1920s dance moves. He begs off, claiming that he was blacked-out for most of the decade. Elena's not buying his excuse. Soon enough, the music turns slow ("You Do Something to Me"). As the erstwhile lovers dance, Stefan catches sight of Bonnie with Jamie and notes to Elena how happy her friend looks. Elena maintains that Bonnie is trying, but Stefan had better not expect any forgiveness in the near future. When Elena tries to tell Stefan about her kissing Damon during their trip, Stefan shushes her. He says if he and Elena ever find their way back to each other, then she can tell him whatever she wants. Right now, he's just honored to be her date." Aww. And enter Damon. "We three need to talk."
Jeremy notices the beautiful Brothers Salvatore and their girlfriend leaving the gym, so he starts after them. Making his way across the crowded dance floor, he accidentally bumps into Jamie and Bonnie. There's an uncomfortable moment and then Bonnie asks Jeremy why he's still wearing his ring, saving me from having to go all side-bar heavy again, this week. Jeremy says he knows all about Alaric's psycho killer alter-ego, but he's going to keep wearing the ring, as long as big sister keeps hanging with vampires. When he leaves, Jeremy asks Bonnie if the Germ is her ex. When Bonnie admits he is, Jamie cracks that that wasn't at all awkward. Poor noodle. I hate to see Bonnie alone, but you should really run back to wherever you came from, Jamie. Like now.
