Tyler rises, turns to run, and is Stealth Salvatored by Damon, so he turns back to Stefan and asks what's going on. Damon tells Tyler: "You? Don't talk." Wordsmith that he is, Tyler replies, "Screw you, dude." Damon mocks him soundly for this, which would work great...if Damon hadn't gone there just a few episodes ago. Stefan can tell that Damon is getting testy and tries to calm him down. Damon scoffs. "Oh, come on. Who's going to miss this idiot?" See? Stefan can't answer, but to be fair, I'm sure there must be some fangirls and fanboys in the forums who'd miss the pretty. Besides, Damon, vampires don't like steroid-laced blood. Tyler, taking advantage of Damon's momentary distraction, hauls off, and sucker punches him in the face. His fist bounces off as though he'd struck granite, much the same as when he punched Stefan in "Friday Night Bites." Stefan is still holding back Vicki. With her fangs bared, she snarls, "Oh, don't you hurt him," and I think we're meant to believe she's telling Damon not to hurt Tyler, but it seems like she's telling Tyler not to hurt Damon -- which is just dumb, and Vicki knows it. Damon throttles Ty and lifts him off the ground by his neck. We close in on Damon's eyes. His pupils contract and then dilate again. "Forget what you saw here, tonight. None of us were here." I rewind, because I'm captivated (in a gross way) by that bulging vein running straight up Tyler's forehead. Dear Michael Trevino -- how did you do that? If there's no risk of stroke, I am in the market for a new way to keep my kids in line. Love -- Cindy. Er...back to the show. Damon throws Tyler down to the ground and as he struggles to get back up, it is clear he's alone. He holds his lower back as he looks around the nearly empty lot and we fade to black. Title Card!
