We flash back to the cottage, where Rose tries to get Trevor to snap out of his hormone-fueled delusions. Katherine totally set them up. "She used you to help her escape and me to turn her... Klaus will see our role in this." Katherine apologizes, but Rose isn't swayed and tries to stake her. Katherine grabs the old woman, uses her as a human shield and then bites her neck to ensure her transformation. Rose knows Katherine has also just ensured their deaths. Katherine finds this shrug-worthy. "Better you die than I." Hee. Once the flashback ends, Katherine explains to Elena that she had to look out for herself, and warns Elena she'd be smart to adopt that point of view.
Grill: Caroline occupies Stefan by telling him how she ended up revealing her new nature to Tyler. Stefan is upset, but he's awfully fond of Caroline. She just makes it hard to help her out, but he'll keep her secret from the Evil Pixie Monster, so that he doesn't flip out and kill her on impulse. He tells Caroline she reminds him of Lexi. Caroline teases him about actually having a friend, but she doesn't know Lexi is dead, so she's not being mean; she's just being our classic Care Bear. When Stefan starts mumbling about leaving to check on Elena, Caroline steers the conversation back to Tyler and the upcoming full moon.
Across the room, Bonnie enters, and runs into My-Name-Is-Luka and his father, Dr. Jonas Martin. Dammit, Jeremy. Why weren't you already there? In fact, why weren't you waiting at Bonnie's locker? You're stressing me out, little brother. While waiting for her jailbait date, Bonnie learns the Martins lived in Louisiana and that the doctor did his residency in Massachusetts. He says he knew some Bennetts there and asks if she has family in Salem. Bonnie covers her surprise but not quite quickly enough for my taste. She admits she does, and then the Germ finally shows up. Sheeesh, kid. Your timing sucks. No only is My-Name-Is-Luka after your could-be-girl, his father's up to something fishy, too.
