Damon and Elena are still right in front of the house, but headed toward Damon's car. Stefan, Matt and Rebekah are nowhere in sight, nor is the Pastor, etc. Elena reads Damon the riot act about how he was going to kill Matt. Damon freely admits that's what he was doing, Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon Damon, but Matt is hard to kill.

Elena reminds Damon it was her choice to save Matt. Damon: "It's a little hard to keep track of all your choices lately, Elena." Ooh, burn. Elena: "I remember everything." This stops Damon in his tracks. Elena continues, "One of the highlights of my transition -- remembering everything that you compelled me to forget, like how you and I met first. We were strangers, and you told me you wanted me to get everything I wanted to get from life." Oh Show, that retcon didn't work so well, the first time we had to live through it. Must we? I mean, how is it even significant that they met first, unless you're going to have some gross Twilight-esque imprinting going on here, and I trust you aren't.

Anyhow, Elena is all, "Damon, why didn't you tell me?" Damon: "Would it have made a difference?" Elena looks at him, so Damon adds, "I didn't think so." Elena: "You asked me to make a choice Damon, so I did. If you're going to be mad, then take it out on me, not on Stefan, or Matt, or anyone else. Me." Damon asks if they're done. Elena's not. "If it had been you at the bridge last night, and not Stefan, and I begged you to save Matt..." Damon: "I would have saved you, in a heartbeat, no question." Elena: "That's what I thought, and then Matt would be dead because you couldn't let go. Matt would be dead!" Damon: "But you wouldn't be. And you would have gotten to grow up and had the life that you wanted -- the life you deserve. And I know I didn't used to get that, but I do now, and I wanted that for you, Elena. And I would have gladly given it to you and let Matt die, because I am that selfish. But you knew that already. The first night we met's not all that you remember." He sneers at her and walks away.

Klaus Haus. Klaus is packing up his remaining bags of Elena-blood when Rebekah returns home and gives him hell for saving Caroline over her. Klaus is still all up in his own head, so he mocks back, "Hello, brother. I thought you were dead. So pleased you're not." He explains he only had time to save one, and since she can't be killed, his choice was made, then goes on to say he had a worse day than she, which I'm not sure is entirely true, except how it took him so long to get his own way. He wants to move on and create some more werewolf hybrids. Rebekah mocks his desire to create a family, when he doesn't know anything about family. When Klaus says, "Well, I know how easily they can be sired with a dagger," Rebekah rushes at him and grabs one of the blood bags. She throws it across the room. It bursts and all the precious starter dough drips to the floor. She grabs the two remaining bags. Klaus orders her to drop them. Rebekah cries, "I mourned you. My heart broke thinking I'd never see you again." Klaus tries to placate her. "Put the blood down. There's a good girl." Rebekah: "It's always been me, not Finn, not Elijah, not Kol -- me. I loved you through everything and you didn't even care." Klaus: "DROP IT!" Rebekah: "You want your family? Here's your family." She crushes the bags until they burst. Klaus gives her the trademark throttle and tells her she's right. "I don't care. From this moment on, you're not my family. You're not my sister. You are nothing." He snaps her neck, which to a vampire is really just like causing someone to nap.
