Rebekah trots right in when Damon answers the door and complains to Stefan that Klaus left her in Mystic Falls. Now, remember I just said it's Elena's house? How come Rebekah can enter without an invite from Elena? I'm pretty sure Katherine got in at the end of last season, too. People on the boards are speculating that when Elena died, her death opened the house to vampires. I think they're probably right, but I don't think that's been addressed on screen. Also? I don't like it. The show's invite mythology is getting far too complicated. I mean, if a vampire entered while Elena was dead, and could enter thereafter, I could be on board with that. But when Rebekah shows up at the door right now -- Elena is alive. I'll stop, because I'm just making myself cranky, but I do think it would have been hilarious if Rebekah had slammed up against an invisible barrier.
Anyhow, Rebekah is making herself at home despite Stefan making it clear she's not wanted. He tells her she's not staying there, and Damon's expression says much the same thing. Rebekah tells them they're rude and swans off upstairs. Stefan: "Well, I guess she's staying here." Damon nods as the contempt spreads across his face.
MFHS Corridor: Jeremy spots Bonnie in the halls and says, "So uh, it's not cool to talk to juniors anymore?" Okay, this is a technically a weecap (technically, I think I've already overused technically), so I don't have time to research, but the timeline is bothering me. The first two seasons of the show covered one school year. I'm fine with that. School is less central to this show than it was to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and I'm down with that choice. That said, I'm pretty sure that in Season 1, one of the writers told me Vicki and Tyler were seniors, Elena, Caroline, Bonnie and Matt were juniors, and Jeremy was a freshman. Does anyone remember that? If you can find proof (or set me straight), please shoot me an email. I don't really care if they're retconning Jeremy's grade (or Tyler's for that matter), but I would like to know if that's happened, so that I don't spend any more time thinking about it.
Anyhow, Bonnie wishes Germ a happy first day of school in a tone that would leave the entire population of Ecuador frostbitten. She's not crazy about sharing space in their relationship with Vicki and Anna. Germ says he hasn't talked to Vicki in a while, and says he had to talk to Anna to get information they needed. He really did, Bonnie. Katherine kidnapped him and stuck him in a car trunk. She's not listening. She tells Jeremy to put himself in her shoes. "You loved both of them. And you guys didn't break up. They died. And you keep letting them back in." Germ's laughter betrays his guilt and I'm suddenly sorry I spoke in his defense. "Hurrr hurrrr you think I want any of this?" Bonnie looks away from him as she shuts her locker and after taking a moment, turns to face him again. "I uh... I think you have the power to decide whether or not you see them. Remember that." She walks away and then looks at him over her shoulder. "Okay?"
