Grill: Elena's studying when she's surprised by Damon. She still wants nothing to do with him, so she rises to leave. Damon takes it with his usual Evil Pixie Monster charm. "Okay, see you at Jenna's barbecue." Damon exposits that he talked Alaric into convincing Jenna to host a barbecue (henceforth known as "Contrivance Cookout") and inviting Mason "Brick House" Lockwood. A waitress delivers a bakery box to Damon's table as Elena notes that Jenna is not currently Damon's biggest fan. He admits he's hoping to buy her off with the peach cobbler in the aforementioned box. He's also determined to put some silver in Brick House and prove he's a werewolf. I know you're jealous by nature, Damon, and I'm not scar-averse, but just don't mess up the pretty, m'kay? My heart is big enough for the both of you (and Stefan, Matt, Ty, Alaric, and probably a few others).
Lockwood Mansion: Mason's on his way to the Contrivance Cookout when Ty tries to talk to him about the family secret. Ty might be freaking out, but Brick House plays it all very nonchalant. "Tyler, what do you want me to tell you? Yes, I turn into a wolf. No it's not going to happen to you." Yeah, dude. Like, chill. Brick House says Tyler won't trigger the curse, so it's better for him if he doesn't even know what it is. Tyler dangles the possibility of finding the moonstone over Mason's head, in exchange for information, but Mason leaves him hanging and walks out. After he's gone, Tyler takes out the moonstone and plays with it, because he thinks you're too dumb to have even watched the Previouslies segment.
Mossy Manse: Katherine is reading Stefan's journal when he brings her blood from Damon's private stock. He snatches his diary away from her, but she's not letting that harsh her mellow. She knows about the werewolf sighting and warns: "Their bite kills, Stefan. It's best to stay clear of them during a full moon." It seems the woofers indirectly led to the vampire clearing of 1864. Sure, it was the Founding Families that organized it all, but they were led by the Lockwoods, AROO. She then brings up the original Founders' ball, so we flash back to...
1864: Damon gives a nice toast to his good friend and Confederate
villain hero, George Lockwood. George gets snarky at Damon for deserting, and makes me hate him right off the bat. Henry (remember Henry -- tomb vamp killed by Damon and Alaric) pulls Katherine aside and tells her that the recent rash of brutal attacks weren't committed by vampires, but the victims were torn apart in whole new ways. Henry suggests they leave town immediately, but Katherine says the town is their home, the vamps are her family, and she won't let anyone do anything to them.
