A Proverbial Coin Toss

In the truck, Elena says she has to call Stefan, but her phone is dying. Matt gives her his. She takes it, thanks him, then looks up to see Rebekah standing in the middle of the road. "Matt, LOOK OUT!" Matt swerves to avoid the Beckster and his truck goes flying off Wickery Bridge. We flash back to...

The Gilbert's Accident. Their car is filling up with water. Miranda is unconscious. Elena says, "Dad?" Grayson promises they'll be okay. Grayson is wrong. The water rises. We cut to...

SFTiCEfBRaAtRaLbiFtFfDtL. Vamparic beats the stuffing out of Damon and wonders why he doesn't fight back. Damon is all: invulnerable, much? Damon plays the friend card. Vamparic says that's what kept him weak, but he's broken through, now. Now he's going to break Damon. We cut to...

That fateful night. Damon lies down in the middle of the road -- hoping to snag a tasty treat. When he sees Elena, he thinks -- at first -- that she is Katherine. Elena is on the phone with Bonnie, lamenting her situation with Matt. When Damon says, "Katherine?" she corrects him. "No. I'm Elena." Damon gets it, but he's still captivated by "Someone." Elena tells him he's being kind of creepy. Damon points out that he's not doing anything she isn't doing. Elena: "It's Mystic Falls. Nothing bad ever happens here." Muahahahahhaaa. When she confesses she had a fight with her boyfriend about his plans for their future, Damon says, "You don't want it?" Elena claims she doesn't know what she wants, but Damon tells her that's not true. "You want what everybody wants. [...] Well, let's just say I've been around a long time. I've learned a few things. [...] You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure -- and even a little danger." Elena asks Damon what he wants. Damon: "Ah..." Just then, Elena's folks drive up. Damon turns on his compulsion eyes. "I want you to get everything you're looking for. But right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town, yet. Good night, Elena." He Stealth Salvatores away, leaving Elena confused. We return to the...

Present. At the SFTiCEfBRaAtRaLbiFtFfDtL, Alaric is still kicking the crap out of our Evil Pixie Monster. Damon's all: "Is that all you got?" Alaric says it's not, and raises ISoWOs. Damon blocks it -- refusing to let it plunge into his heart. He then punches Vamparic. We cut to...

Wickery Bridge. Underwater, Elena regains consciousness, but Matt is still out, despite her attempts to rouse him. There are cuts back and forth to that night in sophomore year when Elena's parents died. Suffice it to say that when Stefan tried to save Grayson, Grayson insisted that he save Elena instead. In the present, Stefan tries to save Elena, but she insists he save Matt. This is a beautiful scene. I don't mean to take away from it, but it bothers the heck out of me that Elena doesn't unfasten her seatbelt! Anyhow. There are flashes back and forth. The parallels -- CAN YOU FEEL THEM? Finally, Stefan saves Matt, and Elena lets herself go. Rest in short peace, little Miss G.
