Which-House-Witch-House. Jeremy is pleading with Bonnie to wake up, when she does just that. He takes her in his arms and I forget, for a moment, that these two ever broke up. Quietly, Bonnie says, "I couldn't do it. It didn't work." Commercial.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch... Elena tells Stefan she's out of time. She needs blood. She's dying. Stefan screams for the guards. Rebekah tells him to shut up. Finally, a guard shows up and tells Stefan to pipe down. Stefan says Elena will die if they don't release her. The guard says it's not his problem. Stefan's claims that she is innocent mean nothing to him. The guard turns to leave. Stefan screams at him, so the guard shoots him in the gut. Elena: "Stop!" Stefan gets back to his feet and grabs hold of his cell bars. "I said let her out." The guard shoots Stefan in the thigh and walks out. Rebekah can't tear her eyes off the scene before her because nobody's ever really loved her.
Which-House-Witch-House. Caroline and KiT are with Bonnie and Jeremy now. So much for keeping KiT a deep, dark secret. KiT commands Bonnie to return him to his original body. Bonnie's not strong enough right now, but KiT doesn't care about upset spirits. Caroline tries to reason with him, but it doesn't work. KiT tears open his shirt, insta-grows some claws, plunges them into Tyler's chest and threatens to pull Tyler's heart right out and then jump into Jeremy's body. Jeremy tries to call his bluff, insisting he'd need a witch for that. KiT says for all they know, he might have another witch or ten. He tells Bonnie to choose -- herself or Tyler. Bonnie agrees to do the spell.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch... I'd apologize for over-using that, but how often can you say, "Meanwhile, back at the ranch," and be accurate, unless you're a rancher. Anyhow, Stefan pulls the bullets out of his body, then checks on Elena. She lies that she's okay, but he can tell from her breathing that she's not. Stefan apologizes. Damon was right. She should have fed right away. Elena tells him not to be sorry. "You had hope. That's all I ever wanted you to have, and you had it." Stefan, eyes full of tears, says, "I love you so much." Elena: "Do you know why I was even on that bridge? I was coming back for you, Stefan. I had to choose and I picked you...because I love you. No matter what happens, it's the best choice I ever made." How, exactly? I don't even say that from a Damon/Elena point of view, but since she was on the bridge, which is what gave Beckster the opportunity to send Matt's truck careening over it, and since neither Damon nor Stefan (nor any of her friends) were dying, how exactly was that the best choice? I don't want to deny these two their tender moments. I was fine up until that line. Ugh.
