Bonnie wakes with a loud, gasping start. In math! How embarrassing. Everyone turns to look at her. She looks from the girl on her left to the girl on her right. When the girl on the right doesn't look away, Bonnie says, "What are you looking at? Turn around." That's the way, Bonnie. Use those cheerleader perks. Suddenly, the girl on Bonnie's left is replaced by Great-great-great Grams. Bonnie screams. Then she wakes up in front of the crypt -- where she woke at the end of the last episode. Poor kitten. Still? It's better than screaming in math class. Title card.
Mystic Falls High; Exterior: Caroline fills Elena in on the necklace situation. Elena tries to smooth things over, but when Caroline makes it clear that she's intent on staying pissed at Bonnie, Elena declares herself officially out of it. Their conversation then turns to Stefan, who Elena says is "avoiding" her. Hasn't Elena been telling him to take a long walk off a short pier for at least a couple of episodes? Whatever. As Elena says, "It's complicated." The bell rings and she heads inside, leaving Caroline and Matt to have an awkward "Uh...hey!" moment, in the wake of last week's undercover snuggles Perfect.
History Class: Elena's already seated as Bonnie scurries in right before Matt Davis (Warner, Legally Blonde). Elena can tell Bonnie's all upset, but they can't really talk there. Matt Davis introduces himself - well, his character: Alaric Saltzman, saying Saltzman is a German surname and his ancestors moved from Germany to to Texas in 1755. There are a lot of Germans in Texas, but were they going there in 1755? Really? Why? Anyhow... Alaric says he's from Boston. Liar. I'm quite sure I would have noticed. Apparently there's some debate over how to pronounce Alaric, so All-Trades Tanner's replacement is going to clear that up for us right now. It's ah-LAR-ic, not AL-ar-ric. He says we can call him Ric, so Al it is. And not for nothing, but did anyone else go to a Principle Flutie place, here?
