Abandoned Mansion: Bonnie tells Jeremy to go away, but he says he owes her an explanation. She finally turns from the fire and walks over to him. "Matt let go of his sister before you let go of Anna. His sister, Jeremy. You know what you owe me? The respect of not making me listen to you explain yourself." Germ: "I am sorry, Bonnie." Bonnie: "You need to go. [...] Just go, Jeremy." Jeremy nods and walks away.
Once she is alone, Bonnie turns back toward the fireplace. The flames flare up again. Sparks fly. When the pyrotechnics subside, Bonnie walks closer and bends down to look inside. There's the necklace -- as good as new. Dun dun dun.
Cave: Damon stands at the entrance to the inner chamber and asks if Mason was screwing with him, or if there's really something in there. Alaric's mouth is hanging open as he trains his flashlight around the space. Finally, he says, "I found something." The camera pans to show us cave paintings. There's a sketch of ship that looks vaguely Viking and some Runic script on the walls. There are pictures of warriors, some carrying shields. There's a picture of a tree, that I can't help but think is the fabled White Oak -- the ashes of which are used when temporarily killing an Original with those handy-dandy daggers. Damon wants to know what he's found. Alaric's voice is a whisper. "I have no idea." Title card.
Well, that's it for this week. I'll see you Friday morning with my recaplet of "Ordinary People." In the meantime, please grade the episode up top and join us in the forum, where you can read the writing on the wall.
