Mossy Manse; Later: Damon's sitting by the fire, holding his drink (of blood) to his troubled head. When he hears his brother arrive home, he says, "We have a problem, Stefan -- and when I say problem, I mean global crisis..." because I am an enormous drama queen. He stops then, not out of self-awareness, but rather -- because he's just gotten a good look at his brother. Stefan can barely see Damon. He only sees the glass of blood he's holding. Damon notes the detox is different this time. "Of course it would be, after all these years." Damon knows his brother is in no shape to discuss crises global or domestic. He bids Stefan a gentle good night, and leaves behind his glass of blood -- this time, out of pity. Scared and ashamed though he may be, Stefan drinks it -- with gusto. DUN!
That's it for this week. I've got too many theories swirling in my head to make sense of them. If you feel the same, you can reach me at CynthiaMcLennan[at]gmail.com, or shout out to me on Twitter. Until the next episode, come on over to the forums, where it's all shirtless Salvatores, all the time.
