Once Tyler collapses, Damon explains his actions. "He's been sired. [...] He feels loyal to Klaus, because Klaus's blood created him." Okay, I'm fine with supernatural shows creating their own mythology. What I'm not fine with is them redefining words. You wanna call Tyler "Sire whipped" or "sire enthralled" or whatever? I'm right there with you. But "siring" is the same as "turning." I mean, you're not calling stakes shoe laces. Don't futch with the meaning of words, Show. Anyhow, Damon continues to explain the writers' really bad choice of terms and Tyler's loyalty to Klaus. "He'll seek acceptance from his master. It's really rare, but maybe not so much with hybrids." Couldn't Damon have said Tyler has been mastered? Sorry. Letting go now. What did I say about a glass of wine and some yummy food. That's what I'm prescribing for me, now. Caroline looks up at Damon and says, "So, how do I fix him?" Damon smirks. "Get a new boyfriend." Oh no, Elena. He didn't mean you to hear that. Not at all.
Keg Party: Rebekah is having trouble pumping the keg, so Stefan walks up and helps her. She was hoping Tyler would be there. When Stefan gives her crap about being fickle, Rebekah says, "When you're willing to give me the time of day again, then we'll talk. Until then, a girl has needs." Just then, Elena saunters up, fills up her cup, snarks at Stefan and sucks down a beer. When he reminds her she's a lightweight and ought to take it easy, Elena laughs. "Oh really? You think I'm going to let a blood addict remind me how to drink." Atta girl!
Donovan Domicile: Matt lights a bunch of candles and lays the holiday photo of himself and Vicki in the middle of them. As Vicki tells him to concentrate on her, he slices open his palm and lets the blood dribble on the picture. MATT BLOOD MAGIC IS TRES BAD! Vicki tells him this is all good and blah blah and then says, "Now, say you accept me." Matty, have you never watched one horror flick or supernatural show, or heck, even read one Stephen King book in your whole life? You can't say shit like that!!! He doesn't listen. "I accept you." Book pages start turning by themselves. The candles flare. The picture starts to smoke. A door slams. When Matt turns around, he bumps into Vicki and they both feel it. She puts her hands to his face and he feels that too. They hug.
