Parking Lot; Sunset: You know, it's not so much a lot as a road, but whatever. Stefan is still freaking out on poor, enthralled Anxiety Amber, who ought to catch the next bus back to Cougar Town. "I don't hurt people. I don't do that. I'm the good brother." Ha. When Amber asks if he wants to hurt her, he says he wants to kill her, rip into her skin, feed on her blood. He waxes poetic about her carotid artery. This is no OMGEYESEX dance, lemme tell you, but it manages to be tense and funny at the same time. Stefan says if he gives in, there's no going back. Amber tells him not to. Stefan then swears he just wants one taste. Amber parrots his last words. He gives in and drinks his way to COMMERCIAL.
Event: Caroline is crowned Miss Mystic Falls. Hooray! Even Elena is thrilled. Caroline can't believe it. Meanwhile, Liz misses her daughter's coronation. She's off with Snark in the bathroom. No, not for that. They're inspecting the broken mirror and the blood (which is just Stefan's, but they don't know that) Stefan left in his wake. Liz says, "Get me Damon Salvatore." Yeah, maybe he can do something with Snark's hair.
Outside; Nightfall: Stefan continues to struggle with his nature. Amber doesn't mind, she just tells him that next time, he shouldn't do it so hard. He rushes toward her, babbling that he can't stop, but is distracted by the fact that she isn't afraid. When he asks her why, she reminds him, "You told me not to be." He's so messed up he doesn't even remember he compelled her. In a brief moment of sympathy, he orders her to fear him and run away, right now.
