Elijah: No, fair Recapper. We cannot.
Recapper: God, you're hot.
As Elijah heads to the door, Damon points out that they both know the elixir wouldn't have worked, anyhow. Elijah wants and deserves a better exit line than his pissy little reminder that he'll be back to see Elena later, so he spins on his heels and approaches Damon. "The problem, Damon? You talk a good game, but you don't actually know...anything. She'll never forgive you. And never for a vampire -- is a very long time. Damon ponders and appears disturbed by this thought, even though he was totally aware of it when he was still upstairs, telling Elena to go ahead and wish him an eternity of misery, because she'll get over it. Meanwhile, I'm still not over why Elijah didn't try to give Katherine vampire blood back in the day. Yes, I get that Elena doesn't want it today, but since Katherine purposefully set herself up to be vamped, I can't help but think she would have been amenable to the idea. I'm never going to get satisfaction on this nitpick, am I? This is one of those things where you're talking to your friends about the show and everyone is all, "Yeah, wow, no!" And one person is harping on the smallest thing and you can't wait for her to leave the room so you can roll your eyes and make, "What's up with her" gestures, isn't it? Okay. I'll try to stop.
Alaric and Jenna get some time alone and he apologizes for keeping the truth from her. He wanted to protect her, but it's clear she can handle it. She hushes him by telling him she's glad he's okay and proves it with a smooch.
Meanwhile, Elena is furious that Damon has done this to her. Stefan talks her into taking a little day trip, where they can discuss the implications of her becoming a vampire.
Jules finds Tyler at the hospital and reminds him they have to go lock themselves up for the night. When they walk outside, they run into Caroline, so Jules tells him he can have "just a few" minutes. Caroline is clearly a little jealous. She's also hurt that Tyler left without goodbye or an explanation, and that he's leaving town again. When Caroline follows him to his car, they're both magically attacked by Greta Martin and Maddox. Greta shoves a wooden stake in Caroline's shoulder for good measure.
