Rebekah: Really? Even I'm not that gullible.
Stefan: You jump first, Elena.
Elena Haters: PUSH HER!
Elena: I'll jump. I'll jump.
Elena Haters: HERE'S HOPING YOU LAND CHEST FIRST ON A POINTY STICK.
Rebekah: Now that she's gone, Stefan, there's something I have to tell you about The Bore.
Stefan: But she's a vampire now. If Klaus could hear me when he was down in the Mossy Manse Dungeon, then surely, Elena will hear you. Oh, if only I'd brought my motorcycle.
Writers: Don't worry, Stefan. This week, the script only calls for keen vampire hearing at dramatic moments.
Recapper: I hate so much about what you choose to be.

When Stefan berates himself for being dumb enough to hold out hope, Rebekah says that even if she'd consider giving it to him, to ease his suffering (and I'm not sure it would since the guilt is one of the worst parts for him), she knows he'd probably just turn around and give it to Elena. Our girl is learning. She's learning hard, but she's learning. To prove my point, she apologizes to Stefan that it couldn't work out the way they all wanted it to, then gives him a broken neck vampire nap. Elena's vampire deafness scriptococcus heals just in time for her to hear the bones snap. She turns her head and open mouthed, she watches as Stefan falls. We cut to the...
