Upstairs at the venue, Jenna helps Elena curl her hair, in a very Katherine-esque do. They share a missing-Miranda moment, which Caroline can't help but overhear. When Elena leaves to put on her dress, we see Caroline's reflection in the mirror. She's deeply moved by what she's just heard. I mean, she doesn't cry or anything, because that would ruin her makeup, but you can tell she's actually considering it.
Outside: Snark gives an oil-slick some background on Original Johnathan. Oh, wait. That's Jeremy. The skinny: there are many more journals in addition to the one Jeremy's seen. "He had a lot of...demons." Indeed. When Jeremy asks Snark what he thinks of Original Johnathan's writings, Snark pauses and searches his nephew's eyes. Finally: "Crazy ramblings of a madman, of course." Jeremy wants to say something, but thinks better of it, and then he spots Anna across the way. He excuses himself to go talk to his...friend.
Upstairs: Amber Bradley is having a panic attack over the thought of being the center of attention and tells Elena she needs to go out for some air. Oh honey, as someone who has dealt with those nasty bastards longer than I care to remember, I'd usually tell you to breathe nice and slowly and remember it will pass, but since you're in a town full of vampires, your panic is actually warranted, so I've got nothing -- not even any Vervain.
Once Elena is alone, Damon shows up and squeals that Stefan is still drinking human blood. A month ago, Damon would have rejoiced, but with the Council on the alert, the timing couldn't be worse. When he tells her about Stefan's fridge full of blood bank blood, Elena gasps and sits down. Damon explains that since Stefan has spent so much time fighting his normal cravings, he's never learned to control them. Now that he's drinking the good stuff, he's not going to be able to stop.
