Meanwhile, Elena drags a failing Stefan toward Damon's car. When they both fall, Elena finds she is bleeding from the wrist. Ignoring her own injury, she drags Stefan to his feet.
Damon attacks Fast Freddy. They struggle until a couple of the sub-minions appear and join in the fray. Eventually, Damon subdues them, though, and he beats the hell out of the last one standing until Alaric appears with his stake rifle and shoots the sub dead. Good, I totally hated that guy. Damon takes off, saying he's going after Fast Freddy.
Woods: Elena finally gets Stefan into Damon's car, but when she goes to turn the keys in the ignition, she realizes they've been broken off from the chain. It's then that Freddy appears and drags an ailing Stefan out of the car. As Freddy beats the hell out of Stefan and (non-fatally) stakes him, Elena stabs Freddy with a Vervain-laced dart. Once he's down, she drops to her lover's side and removes the stake. When Stefan is nearly unresponsive, she freaks. Commercial.
Back at Pearl's Pilfered Pad, Damon and Alaric rid the world of the newest fang gang. Once they're done, Damon notes that Fast Freddy is gone. "Let's get out of here." When they reach the front porch, they see a passel of vamps heading their way. Damon: "How many of those Vervain darts do you have left?" Alaric: "One." Damon: "Not going to be enough."
Donovan Domicile: Kelly is trying to cook a mystery casserole for dinner. Matt is touched if less than tempted. As they try to sort out their relationship, they're interrupted by the doorbell. It's Caroline -- AND SHERIFF FORBES! She's-The-Sheriff asks Matt, "Is your mom home?"
Grill: The Mayor's on the phone telling someone to keep "it" out of the news for now. He taps his son Ty on the shoulder and says they have to head out. When Ty protests, Mayor Dad explains, "They found Vicki Donovan." I don't know whose face lights up more -- Ty's or Jeremy's, but it's Ty who asks, "Are you serious? Where was she?" Mayor: "Storm unearthed the grave off County Road. They just brought her body down to the morgue." Jeremy: "Wait. She's dead?" Dun! Mayor: "C'mon, we've gotta go." Ty and the Germ share a brief look of dread, before Ty follows his dad out into the night.
Woods: Elena tries to revive Stefan, but he's too weak. He's too weak, that is, until she gives him her conveniently pre-opened wrist. After his first few sips, Stefan tries to warn her to run, but she insists he drinks deeply. "I trust you." A dying man, Stefan cannot resist. Elena, who shows more passion than Kristen Stewart has in two Twilight films combined, cringes and gasps as he draws his life from her.
