Mayoral Mansion/Founders Party: Tyler and his parents greet their long line of guests on the front steps, and conveniently invite them into their home, ensuring Damon and Stefan easy access. When Ty spies Vicki waiting in line (dressed up like a proper young lady, too), he rushes to greet her with a hug and a kiss on the cheek, but then steers her around back, explaining that the line is too long. Mama Mulva looks on this scene with unveiled contempt.
Mossy Manse: Zach apologizes that Damon didn't fall for the Vervain Mickey. Stefan planned on that failure, to lower Damon's guard. "He won't expect me to try so soon," which is great, because Zach hands him a vial of liquidized Vervain, which he notes is twice as concentrated as what Stefan slipped in the scotch.
Gilbert Gables: As she finishes getting ready for the party, Elena's...wait a gosh darned minute. Is that a BumpIt in her hair? I do believe it is. Great, now I'm thinking about Sarah Palin. I watch these shows so I can forget about stuff like that there. Sheesh. Anyhow, Elena's eyes fall on the pocket watch. She pauses for a moment, then takes it back to Germ's room and lays it on the desk in front of him. He's wearing his headphones, and doesn't look at her until she leaves the room. Once she closes his door, Germ picks up the watch, and opens it. His eyes fill with tears, so he clicks it shut.
