Grill: Jeremy's now at the pool table by himself. Bonnie smiles at him, but she ends up sitting with My-Name-Is-Luka. He apologizes for his father being so obvious about the Bennett/Salem thing and then reveals he and his father have some mojo of their own. That's because they're black, you see. Hey, don't blame me; blame the show! Have we yet seen one witch who isn't of African descent? Oooh, excuse me, My-Name-Is-Luka prefers to be called a warlock. Look, My-Name-Is-Luka, around here, I decide who is called what, so Junior Manwitch it is. Now, let's get back to this show's reliance on the Magical Negro trope. In the future, I hope that changes, or that it's explained in the mythology, because right now, it's making me cringe. Also making me cringe? Poor little Germ looking over at Bonnie and Junior Manwitch. As he considers them, he slings his backpack over his shoulder, and eventually leaves without a word. Poor little emo muffin.
Ye Olde Tomb: Stefan arrives and confronts Elena. She thinks Caroline spilled the beans, but Stefan figured it out on his lonesome. He reminds her that Katherine is a lying liar who lies and promises Elena he will keep her safe. That's just Elena's problem. She's afraid Stefan will die trying. Katherine never met a touching moment she didn't want to ruin, so she slithers back up to the doorway to tell Stefan he can't do anything, this time. And then she leads us into another flashback.
Bulgaria; 1492: Katherine returns to the family homestead to discover Satan Klaus and team have murdered everyone she loves. I can't help but feel for her, especially when she finds her mama. After the flashback, she unnecessarily explains that Klaus killed them to exact revenge on her. She tells Elena that he will do the same to her, her friends, family and everyone she loves. Stefan tries to get Elena to ignore it, but Kat keeps babbling. She tells them there's nothing they can do to stop it, but then holds up the moonstone. "Unless you've got this." Ooh, tricky. Stefan calls Kat a manipulative, psychotic bitch -- she's just lying and trading for her freedom. Katherine doesn't want her freedom though. She's right where she wants to be -- in a tomb into which no vampire, not even Satan Klaus, will enter, because they know if they do, they can never leave. So, like the Hotel California, then? She smiles as she purrs, "I will be the safest psychotic bitch in town." She slithers off again.
