Outer Tomb: As Sheila and Bonnie chant, their torches flare and flicker. Elena says she thinks the spell is working and approaches the door to the inner chamber, but jumps back when Anna and Pearl walk through it. Pearl is frail and not back to full strength. She averts her eyes -- from the people -- from the light. Anna leads her gently and tells Elena, "I just wanted my mother back. Jeremy's fine. He's outside. We won't...touch him." Bonnie and Grams struggle to keep down the seal they might not be able to get up again (hey, don't look at me). Gram yells to Elena that the boys had better hurry. Elena yells to them and we cut to...
Inner Tomb: Damon's still trying to come to grips with the fact that Katherine isn't in the tomb, as Stefan tries to explain they have to motor out of there unless they want to live there forever. Together. With nothing to eat. Elena runs in and calls Damon's name. He looks up at her -- half crazy, half broken, as she pleads with him to leave. Finally, Damon snaps out of it, and he and Stefan follow Elena out of the tomb.
Outer Chamber: More chanting and faltering. Elena and the Salvatores escape the inner tomb. The door slams shut behind them.
Party: Caroline is talking to a group of girls when she and Matt lock eyes. When she walks over to him, he asks, "Is this for real?" Caroline wants to know what he means. Matt adds, "You -- being all cool, and honest and open." She steps closer and says, "Speech number three: I want this to work and I'm scared that you're going to change your mind and you're not going to want it. I don't want to mess it up." Matt's voice is soft and raspy. "I don't want to mess it up, either." They touch noses and look at each other 'til they go cross-eyed.
Church Ruins; Above Ground: Stefan and Elena run over to Jeremy, check on him and are relieved to find out he's all right. Too bad they can't say the same for Stefan's brother. Damon slowly walks out and stands there alone and bereft. Elena walks over to him, hugs him and says, "I'm sorry." Stefan stands back and watches.
Second-Sight Shack: When Bonnie notices Grams is staggering through the house, she offers to help her. Grams tells her she doesn't need to coddle her, but Bonnie says, "It was a big spell, Grams. I could tell it took a lot out of you." Grams says she'll be fine.
Gilbert Gables: Elena brings Jeremy a big glass of water and an aspirin and asks him how his head is. Jeremy says it's fine and swears he didn't drink that much, so he doesn't know how he passed out. Elena asks if he remembers anything. Jeremy says everything is cloudy and he knows how this looks; he's sorry. Elena tells him he has nothing to be sorry for. She says she's just going to run over to Bonnie's and will be back soon, but that Jenna is home. Once she's gone, Jeremy sits at his desk and types "vampires" into bing.com. He clicks on the hit for "Vampires in the real world." We cut to...
