Woods. Jeremy's abductor has the boy in chains, as he leads him to Shane. When Shane thanks the abductor for fending off Jeremy's attacker, the abductor doesn't know what he's talking about, so Shane explains, "Jeremy was attacked by an Islander. I assumed you were his hatchet flinging guardian angel." The attacker says it wasn't him. The conversation is interrupted when Bonnie, sans flamey path, wanders up and asks how she got there and what is going on. When she says the path behind her disappeared, Shane nods towards the abductor and says, "You can thank the talents of Massack. He's a witch. Should you try to escape, he'll ensure you never find a way back." When Bonnie stares at Shane, he brightly announces, "So, the gang's all here. Silas awaits."
Meanwhile, Damon is wandering through the forest when he's struck by an arrow, because while Jeremy can pick up the sound of being followed, the vampire with super hearing cannot. When his assailant rushes at him, Damon gets the better of him. He's just about to snap the guy's neck, when he notices that he has a visible hunter's mark on his hand. "You're one of the five." This gives the assailant time to throw Damon off him. He then snaps Damon's neck. Since he's one of The Five, shouldn't he have an irresistible urge to kill Damon -- a vampire? Ah well, that's not in the script either. Title card.
I'll be back with coverage of, "Down the Rabbit Hole," the title of which confuses me, because it sounds more like an episode of my other show, Once Upon A Time, or even an episode of Lost. I'll see you, Friday morning. In the meantime, please grade the episode at the top of the page and then come on over to the forum, where we're touching Jeremy's tattoo, but only to photograph it.
