Town Square: Matt questions Stefan about Vicki's whereabouts and then mentions he saw him at the hospital. When Stefan claims he was just visiting someone, Matt forgets the Great Vicki Quest '09 for a moment, to make sure Stefan knows that even though Matt and Elena are no longer together, Matt will always look out for her. Stefan's super-hearing then kicks in and he recognizes Vicki begging for mercy and Damon hissing back at her. He walks off leaving Matt staring after him, and finds Vicki and Damon atop a building. He's as proficient at jumping up onto roofs as he is as jumping down from them. Damon smiles. "Not bad. Have you been eating bunnies?" Whee! Anya whispers in my ear, "I like him. He's funny and nicely shaped." Hush, girl. Vicki is about to fall or be pushed off that ledge.
After some begging from Stefan and Vicki, Damon reluctantly throws her onto the rooftop, but not without noting that while he doesn't need her to be dead, Stefan might. He asks Vicki what attacked her the other night. First she says she doesn't know. Then she says it was an animal. After more prodding, she says it was a vampire. When he demands who "did this to her," Vicki looks at Damon and shouts, "You did!" He then breaks out his blood-powered mojo. In a trance, Vicki repeats: "Stefan Salvatore did this to me." Stefan pleads with him to stop, but Damon says that since Stefan couldn't fix it before, he's not going to be able to fix it now. He rips the gauze bandage off Vicki's neck and thrusts her into Stefan's arms. Stefan vamps out, and throws Vicki down to the roof's surface, while Damon tries to tempt him into drinking human blood, reminding him how he now needs the power that it provides, since Stefan will be blamed for Vicki's attack, and his secret will be out. Stefan's cool with submitting to a good old-fashioned staking, because that means he'll never again have to put up with Damon again. This response seems to surprise Damon, who bends down and whispers something in Vicki's ear. She calms down and it's obvious she remembers nothing. She blames the pills she took, says she's good, and leaves the battling brothers. Damon decides to stay in town and stir things up. Stefan asks Damon what he's up to, even though a moment ago, Stefan figured out that Damon is trying to get Stefan to go all darkside again, so that they can be true brothers. Instead of pointing this out though, Damon goes all crazy eyes and says, "That's for me to know and for you to... dot dot dot." Yeah. No, he really says dot dot dot. I've gone to one of my top authorities on bad TV, TWoP's own Angel Cohn (I mean really, you should see the dreck girlfriend watched this summer, and I suspect some of it wasn't just for work, and don't snicker, Mindy Monez, your viewing habits are no better) for a ruling on this ellipsis abuse. Angel says, and I quote, "Dear Vampire Diaries, [...] don't have someone literally say "dot dot dot," ever again." I think she's right, Show.
