amon moves in on her, his voice still cracking as he says, "I just have to say it once and you need to hear it." He nods and looks her in the eye, takes a breath and says, "I love you, Elena." For all the emotion, he delivers this not at all surprising news in a most matter of fact way, which somehow makes it more effective. "And it's because I love you that I can't be selfish with you. And why you can't know this? I don't deserve you...but my brother does." He moves in closer. Elena looks like she's expecting a kiss and might not even fight it off, but Damon means every word he's said, so when he kisses her, it's on the forehead. As Elena is taking everything in, Damon strokes her hair. "God, I wish you didn't have to forget this." And then he turns on the thrall eyes: "But you do." A single, perfect manly tear (TM Dean Winchester) falls from his right eye. We cut to a close up of Elena's eye. She blinks. There's a whoooooosh. And when she snaps out of it, she's all alone in her room. Her window is wide open. Her vervain necklace is back around her slender throat. She grabs it and tries to remember how she got it back.
And now it's time for the Dammit scene. Back at the Southern Mansion, it's dark, but not so dark that we can't see Eljah wake up and pull the stake out of his chest. Say it with me, now. "Damn it!" Scott was right.
I'll catch you Friday morning with my recaplet of this week's "Katerina." Until then, I'll see you on on the boards where we cut off a damned vampire's head when we're done with him.
