Elena is jogging around the track because...that will put meat on her bones? Okay, I know. It's conditioning. Still, it's just funny to see her doing it. Shaddup. Yes. That's because I only ever run if I'm being chased by a bear. Stefan's in his gym clothes too, and catches up to her. He asks if she's going to the bonfire. When she tells him to leave her alone he says, "You think I'm annoying now? Wait 'til Homecoming. Hey, who you bringing by the way? I don't want it to be weird." Oh it won't, asshat. She'll just bring your brother. Have you seen them dance? I should note here that I really like Stefan (and Stefan/Elena). But he's ticking me off in this episode (as he should be) so I'm not going to pretend he isn't.
Elena reverses directions to try and get away from Stefan, but he just runs backwards. When Elena accidentally bumps into another boy running on the track, that boy immediately apologizes, and then Stefan throws him onto the field and yells, "Watch it, dick." Elena looks at him. "Who are you?" Stefan: "I'm the guy who's been assigned to protect the human blood bag." He waits a beat, and then... "No offense." Elena shakes her head and walks away. Stefan walks after her. The music ends. He calls out, "What?" Heh.
MtVVS's Crypt: Kiki dangles a bleeding human over MtVVS's face until some of the blood gets in his mouth. The color comes back to MtVVS's face and his eyes pop open. He yells at Katherine to, "Get it away." She finally tosses off the corpse and tells MtVVS she remembers him from Chicago in the 1920s -- when he was looking for Klaus. MtVVS closes his eyes. Katherine says, "You're not so scary for a badass vampire vampire hunter.
Gilbert Gables: Elena is lying on the bench lifting free weights when Damon finds her. "What -- are you going to bench press a vampire?" Elena: "Do you understand what's happening right now? Stefan called me a human blood bag. He's a completely different person." As she struggles to complete a rep, Damon pushes down on the dumbbell. When she asks what he's doing, he says he's helping her out. "Come on, Buffy!" Thank you, Evil Pixie Monster. When she gives up, he places the weight back on the stand. Elena: "Like one obnoxious Salvatore isn't enough." I know, right? Damon says, "You called. I'm here. What's your plan, oh warrior princess?" Elena wants to lock up Stefan until MtVVS can kill Klaus and the compulsion breaks. Damon says even once the compulsion is gone, they're going to have to deal with a Stefan who has been high on a lot of human blood. "It's not a stint in rehab, Elena. His humanity is gone. Lights out. No one's home." Elena grits her teeth. "Then do it for me, Damon. Every single time I look at him, I feel like I'm going to break, and I'm not going to give him that satisfaction." As you well know, "Do it for me, Damon," are Elena's magic words. I've seen people mad at her for this, but I think Stefan frigging out to be locked up and can't believe Damon didn't make that his job one. I mean, now with Rebekah in town and staying in Mossy Manse, he probably wouldn't be locked up for long, but I can't figure out why Damon didn't vervain Stefan and stick him in the dungeon as soon as he strolled back into Mossy Manse -- especially since he strolled back into Mossy Manse on the very night he killed Chad and Dana, and then fed off Elena.
