When Jeremy notices Shane is there, he asks April why. She explains he was a judge and then says she talked to him about her dad. Shane told her that Pastor Cliche never seemed depressed or suicidal. Jeremy gets distracted when he spies Elena across the party. When April notices he's preoccupied, she wonders what's up. Jeremy says, "Your dad was doing the right thing for this town. The whole Council was. They died heroes." Of course April has been compelled within an inch of her life, so she has no clue what he's going on about. Before she can ask, Jeremy takes off. You're a hell of a date, Germ.
Damon finds Shane inside the mansion. He demands the name of another hunter, but Shane insists there is no other name to give. At any given moment there are five hunters in existence. Most of them have no clue who or what they are, so finding them is pretty much impossible. Shane tries to stomp off, but Damon Stealth-Salvatores right up in his face. Shane looks momentarily startled, but covers well enough and says, "Subtle." Yep, that's Damon's middle name. Damon says, "Like you didn't already know." Shane doesn't argue, so Damon tells him he's got five seconds to give him another hunter's name or he's dead. Shane blahs about the mark and says even if they get a hunter with a complete one, and find what they're looking for..."the thing you're looking for is sealed with a spell only a certain kind of witch can perform." Shane doesn't intend to answer, so Damon grabs him. Shane winces. Damon says, "I love pressure points. What kind of witch." Shane: "Come on, you're a big boy. You can figure this out." Damon smiles. "A Bennett witch." Shane: "Aren't too many of those lying around, as I'm sure you know. None of this matters until Bonnie's back in touch with her magic. Between the two of us, who do you think she trusts to help her get there?" Damon releases his hold on Shane who doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut. "Five seconds are up -- unless you just realized you need me alive. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a scholarship to award." Back outside, Caroline announces that April Young is this year's Miss Mystic Falls. What a crock. The kid just blew back into town from boarding school and her father killed himself and a bunch of Council members, some of whom must have been from Founding Families. Come on.
Elena saves me from thinking about that anymore when she spots Jeremy rushing through the crowd. She hustles off the stage and follows him. Thankfully, Matt takes everything in. Inside, Elena finds the Germ waiting for her -- stake in hand. She tells him to put it down, but he insists Connor was right. "All I can think about is killing vampires." Elena tries to talk him down. Jeremy wants to believe he's not like Connor. He doesn't want to hurt Elena, but everything inside him is telling him to stake her. Elena appeals to him as his sister and assures him she'd never do anything to hurt him. I saw people screaming about how she shoved a knife in his neck, but you know -- that was a Hunter's Curse thing. Since Jeremy is a hunter, he ought to understand, if you ask me.
