Once Elena is gone, Damon goes upstairs and discusses the lead with Andie. Despite dismissing it to Elena's face, he is taking it quite seriously. He's taking the whole search seriously. He has a closet full of leads, and a map with pins marking all the possible Stefan sightings. Andie thinks this new lead might have legs, too. "That Florida victim you had me look into had family in Tennessee." She can't go with Damon to check it out, but she'll see if she can dig up an address. Damon kisses her and Andie says she'll see him at the party. Once she's gone, my possible favorite Damon moment of all time happens. He turns his Evil Pixie Monster eye-thing on his own closet full of leads. Ha. I mean, what is that? He's hilarious with that schtick. I can't stop laughing and I'm not even on muscle relaxers right now.
Mystic Grill. Jeremy's working in the kitchen and video chatting with Bonnie in a Motorola phone product placement that is way less annoying than those Bing ones were last season. We won't see Bonnie for the rest of the episode. She's away spending time with relatives, and Jeremy's bored without her. Bonnie feels the same. "My dad's side of the family is like wet paint that never dries." So... they're smelly, sticky and kind of a mess, then -- like the simile you just butchered? Okee dokee. When Jeremy complains about work, Bonnie lectures that a summer job is good for him. "You needed some normal in your life." Just then, there's a buzz in the kitchen and the lights go out. Jeremy's clearly alarmed. Bonnie asks, "What was that?" Jeremy writes it off as nothing and tries to rush to get off the phone. Bonnie wants to know if he's okay. He insists he is and ends the call way too quickly. Just then, the lights go out again. When they come back on, Vicki is standing in front of him. He drops his phone, says her name and she's gone. When he stoops to pick up the phone, Anna is behind him. As she reaches to touch his back, the kitchen doors start to open. Anna disappears before anyone sees her, even the Germ. Matt bursts in the kitchen. "I need you to switch sections with me." It seems Caroline and Tyler just sat in his section, and Matt yells that he doesn't feel like waiting on his ex-girlfriend. Matt, you know you're my Pudding Pop, but it is your fault that she is your ex.
At an outdoor table, Caroline tells Tyler that his mother was eying her strangely the other day. Just then, Jeremy walks up, greets them, and gives them their menus. There are no flies on Caroline. "Did Matt make you switch sections?" When Jeremy just shrugs, Caroline looks at Tyler. "He thinks we're dating." Tyler says, "So does my mother." When Caroline acts like that's preposterous, Ty adds, "We're together all the time. It's not a leap." Caroline laughs nervously. "That's crazy." Tyler tries to pretend he agrees. "Right?" As they both turn their gazes to quickly to their menu, Jeremy smiles. He knows they're dating, even if they don't.
