Sidebar: Would (or should) Tyler really die? I mean, I know the writers can make up any rules they want; I'm just trying to think which mythology makes more sense to me. Tyler was a werewolf first. Maybe just his vampireness would end, which would be great, because then he'd no longer be a sire-bound hybrid. I don't know. I just think we're jumping to a lot of conclusions, here, kids. I'm sure the writing team wants to amp up the pain though, so these conclusions will probably turn out to be correct. Speaking of amping up the pain...
Klaus Haus. Klaus finally orders poor Damon to stop trying to tear his hands free of the traps. Now that he knows Damon is compellable, he asks Damon how many Son of White Oak stakes remain. Damon tells the truth: eleven. Stefan tells Klaus he will get him the other three. Klaus flirts with the idea of compelling Damon to chew out his own tongue.
Stefan: What is wrong with you?
Recapper: Oh hey, Stef, have you met Klaus?
Klaus: Right?! Seriously, I've given you a target for all your anger, so you don't have to turn it on yourself -- as a friend I've done this. You should be thanking me.
Stefan: I'm going to give you a good, old fashioned Son of White Oak staking right now. *tries really hard*
Klaus: Yes, it makes no sense that I'm not killing Stefan right now, but I am right crazy, so it's not out of character. Instead, I'll just tell him to step down. Step down, Stefan, or you'll both die. And I'll take that Son of White Oak stake in your hand, thanks. Now you only have to get me the other two.
Rebekah: Bored now. I'm releasing Damon. Stefan, bring us the stakes and you both live. Take your brother as a sign of good faith.
Klaus: Bring us the stakes, both of them, or I'll wage a war against everyone you love, blah blee bloo same old song and dance.
When Rebekah and Klaus are alone, she tries to come to terms with Finn's death, which I would think shouldn't be all that difficult, since he spent the last 900 years mostly dead. Klaus says Finn was an embarrassment. Rebekah tells him to mind his tongue, he was still their brother. Rebekah wonders if Klaus would be so cavalier if she died. Klaus says they'll find out soon enough, since she let the Salvatores go even though they still possess two stakes that can kill them. He wonders when she developed a soft spot for them. I'll tell you, Klaus, it's their brotherly bond. It's a beautiful, beautiful thing. Rebekah agrees with me.
