Damon: Where are we even going?
Vaughn: Are you new? To find Silas and The Bore. You're my leverage. I'll use you to force Bonnie to open the crypt passage for me.
Damon: You think I'm leverage over Bonnie? Good thing vampires can't die of laughter. Besides, Bonnie will open it without leverage. We just want the cure, then we'll get out of your hair.
Vaughn: Does this dumb ass think there's an infinite supply of the cure?
Recapper: They all do, Vaughn.
Back at Gilbert Gables, there's tattoo decryption afoot. Caroline reviews her note cards.
Caroline: The passage inside requires a young senator and a pretty flower.
Recapper: The etymology of senator indicates the word originates with the Latin senex, which means old man. So they need a young old man and a pretty flower. Well hell, they need Damon, then.
Back on the island, Vaughn explains that he has to cram the cure down Silas's throat in order to kill him. Damon wonders what that has to do with them. Meanwhile back at Gilbert Gables, Klaus translates and explains that the spell requires a powerful witch and a hunter in full bloom. So Bonnie's an old man and Germ is a pretty flower? That makes more sense than it ought. There are a lot of jumps back and forth. It all boils down to this. There is only one dose of the The Bore. I feel so validated. Commercial.
Jeremy's waiting at the bottom of the well. When Bonnie descends, she falls and cuts her hand, so there are going to be hallucinations for Bonnie, then. Shane isn't down there, yet, so Jeremy asks what Bonnie is going to do to keep Shane from getting to Silas. She asks him to trust her that she won't let that happen.
Jeremy: Yeah, but like your magic gets all out of control and only Shane can help.
Bonnie: Pshaw. If Shane tries to hurt either of us, I'll kill him myself. Now let's walk by my spilled blood on the floor one more time, and let's get a shot of it dripping through the ground, down onto Silas's desiccated corpse. Are we quite clear what's going on, here?
