Lockwood Mansion. April holds up two gowns for Caroline and Elena's opinion. They both tell her to choose the blue. April looks fond of the red one though, and worries that the blue might be too safe. Elena says safe is good when it comes to the judges, and Caroline tells a little anecdote that I don't feel like sharing, because I'm irrationally irritated by our Vampire Barbie this episode. So there.
Damon appears at the door and puts in a vote for the red dress. Caroline throws something at him, but it's nothing that does any damage to his pretty face. As she marches toward him, Damon says he's looking for Professor Shane. Caroline tells him to check the judges table and then tries to slam the door in his face, but Damon pushes it back open and tells April, "The red one. Definitely." When Caroline says they've already agreed the red is too showy, Damon says showiness is the point of pageants. Caroline: "Did you win Miss Mystic, last year? No. I don't think you did." Damon: "Neither did Elena." He turns to April and adds, "And she wore blue." There's some more back and forth and an interjection from April. When Damon asks Elena her opinion, her voice is falters. "The red is pretty." Damon nods and smiles. "And my work here is done." Once he's gone, Caroline turns to Elena and wonders how she switched her opinion so quickly. This gives Elena pause, but she shakes it off and tells April to choose the one she wants to wear, and then walks out, leaving Caroline to ask, "What just happened?"
Elena follows Damon down the stairs. Softly, slowly, she says they need to talk. Damon: "Stefan told me about the breakup. I'd say I'm sorry, but I'm not." Elena asks what he said. Damon: "Oh you know Stefan. They guy just went on and on about it. He wouldn't shut up." That's not true at all, right? I mean, he said they broke up, and he tried to get away from Damon, and then he just told Damon not to pretend it wasn't the best day of his life. Oh Damon, you're such a 'shipper that you're substituting fanon for canon.
