Woods: Vicki is sitting against a tree trunk, crying, when Stefan finds her. She tells him she's starting to remember everything Damon has done and said. She also remembers Stefan's visit to the hospital, and their scene on the rooftop. Stefan apologizes and says that Damon had no right to turn her. Vicki asks what will happen if she doesn't feed. Stefan says, "You'll fade quickly, and then it'll all just be over. Tears stream down Vicki's face as she nods. "I'll be dead." Buffy says, "I'm sixteen years old. I don't want to die." When she can't stop crying, Stefan stoops beside her. Finally, Vicki says, "I don't want this." He tells her she's going to be okay and that he can help her. Yeah, Stefan. Turn her onto your vampire vegan-equivalent vittles. Vicki whispers, "Is it better?" Stefan doesn't respond, so she says, "Is it better? Will I be better?" No honey, you're still going to be an addicted, high-maintenance mess, with even more teeth. When he still doesn't know what to say she cries that she wants to go home. "Will you take me home, please?" Stefan nods, rises and takes her hand to help her out -- then a shot rings out. Stefan is hit. He falls to the ground. Scum, with his gun still pointing at Stefan, closes in on the duo. He stands over Stefan and...Commercial.
After the break, Scum throws down his gun, kneels by Stefan's chest, takes out his stake and readies himself for the big moment. As he raises it, Vicki shouts out, "NO!" That doesn't stop Scum, though. Damon does. He comes up out of nowhere and savages Scum's neck. Once the pest drops to the forest floor, Damon fishes the bullet out of his brother's chest, realizes it is wood and says, "They know." Then he grumbles that if anyone's going to kill Stefan, it's going to be him. Aww, my kids are just that sweet to one another. And then, he demands his ring. Stefan, still suffering, reaches into his pocket and pulls it out and returns it to his brother. Damon grabs it, puts it back on and as he's admiring it, Vicki swoops down on Scum and finishes off Damon's sloppy seconds. Stefan tries to stop her, but it's too late. She pulls up from her first meal, and apologizes, then runs off, horrified. Damon says, "Oops!" Once he stands, he finds the ACTUAL VAMP COMPASS and pockets it. Damon and Stefan are long gone by the time She's-the-Sheriff and the deputy find Scum, or what's left of him. She orders the deputy to find the watch. Good luck with that, buddy.
