Hospital, Interior: Damon finds Elena in her room. He unhooks her from the monitors and examines the bloody tubing that had been carrying her blood to the blood bag, which is now gone. Klaus must have Stealth-Salvatored up to the room and gotten it on his way out of Dodge. Elena stirs. "Damon?" Damon scoops her up and carries her out.
MFHS Corridor: Caroline holds Tyler's hand as they walk down the hallway. When she asks if he's okay, he says he feels phenomenal. "It's a rush. I wish I could explain it. Everything is just better." Oh dear. He scoops her up in his arms, spins her around, puts her down and kisses her. Caroline can't hide her concern, but Tyler assures her this is going to be an amazing year. She smiles to his face, but once she's hugging him and her head is on his shoulder and out of view, the worry creeps back across her face.
Weight Room: Bonnie finds Matt and asks if she could have a ride to Jeremy's. Matt tells her, "Just a second." Bonnie starts back toward the hall then changes her mind and goes to sit beside Matt. She tells him she knows he wants to help and misses Vicki, but his actions tonight were reckless and stupid. Preach it! Matt knows, but says it was worth it, since it worked. Bonnie tells him he doesn't want to be a part of this. He gets to live his life like a normal person. Matt winces, because that's not really true, is it? He says he gets it, though, and will be ready to leave in a minute. "Vicki's here, watching me, and I just need a minute to say goodbye." Bonnie nods and leaves him. As he's tying his shoe, he senses someone in the room. "Bon, seriously? I'm not going to do anything stupid. I just..." He turns to see Vicki smiling at him. She joins him on the bench and says, "Hi, Matty." Pudding Pop's eyes well up as he smiles at his sister.
Mossy Manse: Damon pours Elena a bourbon to help her forget. "You know, I can help you forget, too -- at least the memories you don't want to keep." Elena says, "No. No compulsion. I need to remember. All of it." Damon holds up her necklace. "I stole it back for you." Elena just looks at him. "He's really gone this time. I watched it happen. After everything that we went through to get -- to help him -- now he's just gone." When she doesn't take the necklace, Damon lays it down on the end table. Elena looks down at her drink and starts to cry. "Where were you, Damon?" Damon says, "I shouldn't have left. He grabs her hand and says, "I promise you. I will never leave you again." Elena nods and they share a moment, but it's ever so brief, because they're interrupted by Stefan saying, "Well, isn't this cozy?" Damon stands in front of Elena. "What are you doing here, brother?" Stefan pours himself a drink. "Last I checked, I live here. Klaus is gone, but he's asked me to..." Stefan gestures toward Elena, "...keep watch on you until he returns. From now on, you're under my protection." Elena just raises her eyebrows. Stefan raises his glass, takes a sip, and then gestures from Damon to Elena and back again. "Mmm. By all means. Carry on." Elena looks up at Damon and back to the doorway.
