Mayoral Manse. The Rev moves fast. He's there, overseeing his minions as they cuff Carol and cart her out. When he says he's there to ask a few questions about Tyler, Carol non-sequiturs that they can't arrest her, since she's Mayor. Oh honey, since when can't we arrest politicians? It's our last defense, baby girl. The Rev doesn't even entertain her objection beyond pointing out that she's been removed from office.
Outside, when Liz arrives, the Mayor tells her she's out of a job too. She's not fit to protect them, so Rev has taken over her deputies, confiscated all the vervain in town, and they'll be taking Liz's badge, thank you very much. Liz: "You have no idea what you're up against." Rev begs to differ. "We're making our move."
Fortress Forbes. Caroline is throwing a few things together when Liz calls to warn her about Rev. Young and the new Council. Caroline pretends like she's already out of town, but when she opens the front door, one of the minions injects vervain right into her neck. Caroline drops her phone in the struggle. Liz yells out, "What's going on?" Before Caroline can shout anything useful, she passes out. Commercial.
Gilbert Gables Kitchen. Stefan makes Elena a sandwich but she can't choke it down. Stefan asks her if it's disgusting. Elena tries to lie, but admits she wants to puke and then confesses she can't stop thinking about blood. Question: Does food nauseate vampires on this show? I remember Stefan cooking for Elena. I can't remember if they eat. Is the sandwich disgusting because she's becoming a vamp, or is it only disgusting because she's still in a state of transition?
Anyhow, Stefan keeps second guessing his actions, but Elena reminds him he did the right thing -- he respected her choice. When he asks what will happen if Bonnie can't help her, Elena says they'll cross that bridge when they come to it. Get it? Bridge? Like where her parents died. Like where she and Stefan were heading when he THREW OUT HER CELL PHONE. Like the thing off of which she and Matt crashed. Because transition makes you irrational, IRRATIONAL, DO YOU GET IT, Elena cracks up -- with laughter. Nina Dobrev does fine with what she's given, here. I just don't care for that which she has been given. Stefan exposits bout heightened emotions. Elena cackles herself right into tears. Stefan hugs her and then sends her back to her room, where it's darker, since she crushed that evil lightbulb and all.
