MFHS Bathroom: Anna reminds Germ that Vicki is bad news. "There's nothing but darkness around her." Jeremy insists Vicki isn't a bad person. Anna cautions him against thinking Vicki can upset the balance of nature without a price. "If she's using a witch's energy from the other side, you don't know what price she's agreed to pay."
Stoner Pit: Vicki says she can be a part of this life again, instead of being all alone. "You won't have to be alone either." This hits Matt where he lives. He walks closer to her and asks, "What do I have to do?"
MFHS Football Field, After School: The football players and cheerleaders are practicing. When one of the cheerleaders asks if anyone has seen Dana, Caroline looks the other way. Just then, Becky Badass walks up and says it looks like there's an opening on the squad. Caroline tells her she can't infiltrate all their lives. Rebekah: "I'm only interested in yours. Your spark. Your popularity. Maybe even your boyfriend."
Meanwhile, when the coach comes down on the players, Tyler decides to test drive his compulsion powers. "Shut the hell up, so we can go get drunk at the bonfire." When the coach dismisses the team, Caroline goes to Tyler and tells him he has to be more subtle. He snarks at her and calls her the Queen of Subtlety. Tyler is acting very much like his old, unlikable self. The couple bickers until Tyler's attention is drawn to Rebekah showing off her physical prowess to the cheerleaders. Caroline is not amused.
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.
