Back in the woods, Stefan tells the kids that since the Originals are linked, they only need to kill one. Since all the members of the Fellowship of the Falls are now armed with Son of White Oak stakes, it's just a matter of seizing the opportunity to stake an Original. They run different scenarios. Damon assigns their roles: Elena plays Klaus; Caroline is Klaus bait; Matt is Rebekah bait.
Damon: Just act interested. She's lonely and desperate.
Caroline: Clearly. She slept with you.
Elena's Face: I love my BFF!
I'm not going to get into their tactical details. Suffice it to say, the Salvatores have some decent plans, despite their earlier brain-dead decision to encourage Alaric to wear the ring. The point is to stay on their toes and take advantage of any chance they get. Damon lectures Elena about not having any last moments of pity for any of the Originals. She's more than ready, after what happened to Bonnie's mom. (Of course she hasn't seen that handsome devil, Elijah, lately, so it's probably easier.) Caroline's all over the plan, for Tyler's sake. Matt's in, because what choice does he have? Stefan says they have 12 stakes, which means they have 12 shots at killing one Original. They can totally do this.
We cut to Klaus Haus. Klaus has just literally thrown Finn into the house. Rebekah tells Klaus to "gather [his] witch," get Finn's blood and get on with it. Wait a minute! If all you need is his blood, why didn't you just take his blood in Atlanta? See what I mean about the stupid? I would find it far more believable that Finn returned for Sage at just the time Klaus was trying to unlink them, than that they manhandled him all the way back to Mystic Falls. Okay. I'll let it go, now, because I enjoyed this episode far more than the past few.
Finn says they can't force him to help them. Um, they just forced you back to town? All they need is blood. I can't.... All right, I said I was letting go. Here comes Sage down the gorgeous Klaus Haus staircase. She's Klaus's leverage over Finn. This week, Sage is an open faced, love smitten, likable woman, even though for the last two weeks, she's been a rape pimp. I can't wait for her to die. The long lost lovers embrace. Rebekah mocks them. Klaus gets a text from Kol saying to let him know when he's needed. Rebekah asks Klaus what he needs from her. He just wants her blood and her blessing. She's got some unfinished business with Damon and she'd like to get down to it.
