Old Lockwood Ruins: Mason is surprised that Damon showed up. Damon says, "I hit a snag on my only other Klaus lead, so I'd say I'm highly motivated." Mason: "Mikael. Yeah. That didn't turn out so great, did it?" When Damon asks how he knows so much, Mason says there isn't much to do on "the other siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide" except, "Sit around and watch people screw things up." He then explains that they are at the ruins because there's a Lockwood legend about a weapon that can kill an Original Vampire. "And like the rest of their secrets, they kept it buried." Mason is trying to smash through a brick wall with Damon's shovel, but his progress is slow, so Damon grabs the shovel and finishes the task in seconds.
Okay. What is Mason -- other than a ghost? Is he a werewolf ghost? How come he was strong and fast enough to beat the snot out of Damon, tie him to a chair and torture him, but now he's not as strong as Damon when it comes to breaking through a brick wall? Is it because he's a Brick House, and smashing that wall is too much like familial abuse? Yeah, let's go with that. Mason tells Damon to go first, but Damon isn't sure whether Mason is leading him into a trap, so Mason takes the lead.
Torture Emporium: Suffering Stefan shakes and quakes as he growls about starving. Elena asks what's happening. Lexi: "He's hallucinating. That's three months without any blood." In a few seconds she adds, "Now he's at nine months... Two years. Five." Stefan looks up at Lexi as he strains against his bonds. "Did I ever tell you how glad I am that you're dead?" Lexi gives him a patronizing smile. "Aw. I miss you too, friend." Elena gets a call, so she leaves the inner chamber of the torture emporium. It's Caroline calling from Mossy Manse. The necklace isn't where Damon said it would be, and now he's incommunicado. Elena asks Caroline to get Bonnie to hold off on sending the ghosts back. Caroline is not down with this idea. Elena explains that Lexi's ghost is there, helping with Stefan. Caroline: "Okay, well let's just find it first, and then we'll choose between boyfriend ghost dramas."
