Inside the bathroom, he tears open his palm and offers it to Elena. "You're a new vampire, Elena. You need warm blood, from the vein. Maybe this will do the trick. Just -- just don't tell Stefan." Staring at Damon's blood, Elena is breathless as she asks, "Why not?" Damon: "Because blood sharing is kind of personal." He finally gets Elena to drink and it's hotter than any sex scene ever featured on this show. I'm struggling to stay out of Metaphor-ville about cheap bathroom hookups, but it's difficult when watching these two. Right now, Elena has undeniable physical needs and Damon knows that, but his baby blue eyes betray him. It's clear from the look on his face that he's pretending Elena is feeding off him because of her passion for him, rather than her need to feed.
We cut to Caroline and Tyler in bed. She stops their shenanigans to note that it's wrong to be having sex when the whole Council just got blown up. Tyler notes that if they stopped having sex every time someone in Mystic Falls died, they'd explode. Caroline says they need to be more sensitive, which is just dumb because they're alone. I mean I hope they are. Hey, Care Bear, shut off the webcam, and none of the mourners will know what's going on. She doesn't listen and continues to question if they should be more sensitive, which gives Tyler an opening to declare his love for our Vampire Barbie. She returns the sentiment, but their smoochies are interrupted by the sound of the doorbell.
Downstairs, Carol answers the door and finds Connor Jordan on the other side. Liz has already given her the heads up about him, so Carol is wise enough not to invite him in. Connor doesn't worry about the niceties though and just barges in, so he's not a vampire. He starts leveling accusations about the Council members' deaths. When Tyler comes down and asks what's going on, Connor introduces himself and extends his gloved hand. Tyler shakes it, and his hand starts to sizzle. Connor grabs a gun and shoots Tyler a few times. Carol screams. Upstairs, Caroline jumps out of bed, so we can have yet another gratuitous shot of her in her undies. She halfway throws on some clothes and rushes downstairs, just in time to hear Carol order Tyler to run. He jumps through a window. Commercial.
Stefan removes the bullets from Tyler's shirtless bod and notes that the wooden bullets were specially carved. "If you were a normal vampire, you'd be dead." Tyler says Jordan's gloves must have been steeped in vervain, and he was definitely looking for a vampire. Stefan ponders about the etchings on the bullets. Caroline wonders if they were "spelled." That's twice in less than a week that one of my shows has used "spelled" to mean "enchanted," which I only mention because it's funny. Whatever. It's funny to me.
