Mossy Manse: Stuff happens. I forget what, because Stefan is lying shirtless on the bed and the cameraman gives us a nice long shot of him sitting up. God bless him, and Paul Wesley's genes, trainer and commitment, too. Damon's there -- with his shirt on (so we don't black out and miss the rest of the episode). He's offering Stefan some coffee to get his blood pumping, but would you take a drink from this man (especially if you'd previously slipped him a mickey)? Neither would Stefan, seeing as he's still cranky about Damon killing his FBfBFF. Shirtlessness walks away as Damon talks and I mourn. I think he's sorry or something, because to prove it, he's swearing off human blood, for a least a week. He'll adopt the Stefan diet. "Nothing but... feathers." Hee! Shirtlessness returns to the room. Hooray! And yet, I turn away from the screen so I can give the dialogue its due. See how I sacrifice for you, Gentle Readers? Ooh, what's that tattoo? Sorry, I caught it out of the corner of my eye. Let's start a less prurient paragraph, shall we?
Off Damon's proclamation that he's (temporarily) adopting the Stefan diet, Stefan re-enters and starts mocking his brother. Excellent! "Because I realize that killing... your closest and oldest friend is beyond evil, and yet somehow, it's worthy of humor?!" Damon stares at Stefan. "Are you mimicking me?" Shhh, Damon, Stefan's on a roll (make that a role-play). He takes a shirt out of his armoire and says, "Yes, Stefan," holy Budweiser, look at Stefan's abs. Sorry. I peeked. Stefan continues mocking Damon: "Now that the secret society of vampire haters is off our back, I can go back to my routine of 'how can I destroy Stefan's life this week'." Damon decides to play along. "And I can go back to sulking, and Elena-longing, and forehead brooding." Somewhere, Angel feels all proprietary and he doesn't know why. Meanwhile, Damon smiles up at his brother. "This is fun!" Stefan won't break character. "And I will finally reveal the ulterior motive behind my evil and diabolical return to Mystic falls." Damon mulls this over for a second. And then, "Uh... yeah. I'm done." As he leaves Stefan's room, Damon can't resist one more round of mimicking. "This is just like you, Damon. Always have to have the last word."
