Town Square; 6:15PM: Damon and Alaric wait across the street. Oh, goody. I love these two, together. Damon says they should be in the Grill, but Alaric says Isobel made it clear they weren't to step foot inside. Damon: "I'm not going to kill her in a crowded restaurant." Alaric: "You're not going to kill her, period." Damon doesn't understand Alaric's urge to protect the woman who ruined his life. Let's see if he singing the same tune when he runs into Katherine someday. Alaric: "She's my wife." When Damon gives him the eye, Alaric corrects himself. "Was. Was my wife. I looked for the woman I married, but she wasn't there. Whoever that is -- is cold and detached." And tripping! Damon scoffs as he reminds Alaric that Izzy has given up her humanity. Alaric doesn't get that. "Stefan has his humanity. He's a good guy. Hell, you're a dick and you kill people, but I still see something human in you..." Hee. "...But with her there was -- there was nothing." Damon says, "You can turn it off. It's like a button you can press. I mean Stefan's different. He -- he wants the whole human experience. He wants to feel every episode of How I Met Your Mother." He must not have watched this season yet, then. Blergh. Oh sorry, Damon. You were saying? "So, he shuts his feelings out. The problem is, as a vampire, your instinct is not to feel. Isobel chose the easier road. No guilt. No shame. No regret. I mean, come on, if you could turn it off, wouldn't you?" Alaric says, "You haven't." Damon laughs, "Of course I have, Ric. That's why I'm so fun to be around." Pshaw, Damon. Alaric might not know about your habit of squatting on a magical toadstool for a good cry, but we do.
