Anna's Place: Damon sneaks up on her and chokes her. His equal in strength, Anna chokes him right back. Finally, he calls her off, and they both drop their hands. Anna glares at him. "I was wondering how long it would take you to find me." I know, right?
Giuseppe Salvatore's Grave: Elena asks Stefan why his dad isn't buried in the family tomb. Stefan explains that it hadn't yet been built. Does anyone else suspect the set-designers and writers forgot, and had to scramble at the last second? Stefan's as sure as he can be that the grimoire is in the grave with Giuseppe. By torchlight, they dig it up. Stefan tries to let Elena beg off, but she doesn't want Katherine's tomb opened any more than he does, because that will totally cramp her style, y'all, so she's ready to help. When Stefan lets out a big sigh, it dawns on Elena how difficult it must be for Stefan to dig up the remains of his own dad. With that, we flash back to...
1864: Katherine is playing with an amber crystal that looks awfully familiar, but it's the cameo around her neck that Stefan is asking about. Katherine says it's a gift from Emily. Is that her day-walker bling? She wonders when Stefan will stop worrying about Damon. Stefan wants Katherine to himself. Katherine says she's spoiled, selfish, and is the one who gets to make all the rules. She kisses her way up his bare chest (bless) and then latches onto his shoulder as he moans in pleasure. Suddenly, Katherine raises her head. Blood still dripping from her lip, she groans, "Vervain," and falls to the floor. Stefan (bite mark on his shoulder) doesn't know what all is up, so to add to his confusion, his father bursts in and tells him to go get the sheriff; they have a vampire and nothing Stefan feels for her is real. He fed Stefan Vervain to expose her, because his suspicion was piqued when Stefan showed sympathy for the vampires' plight. "I didn't raise my sons to be so weak.... The sheriff -- now. Go, quickly. Now, son." And Stefan? He frigging goes.
Mystic Falls; Present (night); Giuseppe's Grave: Stefan and Elena dig away. Commercial.
Anna's Place (which looks like a motel room): Anna tells Damon she arrived, "Around half-past comet," and has been watching Damon screw up every step of the way. She has let others do her work. Damon asks if that means people like Logan Fell. "Little bastard shot me." Anna says Logan was being such a poseur-slayer with the ACTUAL VAMPIRE COMPASS that they slipped him some blood because she couldn't let him die when she needed his family's journal. She thought it would contain the location of Emily's grimoire. She then shows him Jonathan Gilbert's journal and says he should help her find the grimoire, because they both want the tomb open. Damon skims the journal until he finds what he needs, and then closes it and wraps the bindings around it. "Sorry. I work alone."
