Tennessee House

(Woman walks out of the kitchen door)

Woman: Rudy! (Whistles) Rudy. Come on! It’s too hot to make me come looking for you.

(She bends down and picks up a toy. And when she turns around Klaus suddenly appears in front of her.)

Klaus: I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to scare you.

Woman: Can I help you?

Klaus: Yeah, my car hmm, my car ran out of gas a couple of miles back. Eh I feel like I’ve been walking forever yours is the first house I come to so I was just hoping I could use your phone?

Woman: Don't you have a cell phone?

Klaus: Huh, yeah (picks up phone) battery died. Look I promise I'm not a serial killer I just wanna use your phone.

Woman: (sighs) Sure.

Klaus: Soo, I can come in?

Woman: No, I'll get the phone and I'll bring it out to you.

Klaus: (annoyed) I thought you country folks were supposed to be more trusting.

Woman: I'm from Florida.

Klaus: Well, that explains it. (He grabs her throat and compels her) Now show me a little southern hospitality. Sweet pea.

[Inside House, Kitchen']

(Women #2 is frying food and walks over to the counter with the frying pan)

Woman#2: I bet you a hundred dollars that dog ran off to a house with air conditioning.

(Woman #2 turns around and sees Woman #1 and Klaus enter the kitchen)

Woman#2: What's going on?

Klaus: Please don't be alarmed. I was told Ray Sutton lives here.

Woman#2: He's almost never here. He's on the road mostly.

Klaus: But I expect he makes it home, once a month. That's what I thought. Where is he now? (No answer) If I have to make you tell me it's going to be infinitely more painful for you. Hmm (smiles)

(Woman#2 runs out of the kitchen and opens the front door. But in the doorway stands Stefan.)

Woman#2: Aaaah!

(Klaus and woman#1 comes up behind her)

Klaus: I love it when they run!

Woman#2: (gives up) He's in Toll. It's near the border. A bar called Southern Comfort, It's on Highway 41.

Klaus: Thank you my love. (Touches Woman#1 hair) Now, may my friend come in?

Woman#1: (crying) Yes.

(Woman#2 looks terrified and Stefan goes in. Klaus pushes woman #1 to Stefan)

Klaus: Kill this one quickly. (Looks at woman#2) And make that one suffer. I'll be in the car.

(Klaus leaves with a grin and the women are crying.)

Woman#1: Please don't!

(Stefan just looks at her and transforms. Bites her, She screams. Woman#2 screams too. Cuts to outside the house, Klaus is walking over to the car smiling)

[Gilbert’s House, Elena's Bedroom]

(Elena is in her bed. She sits up, goes over to the window. She holds up her hand hesitates for a second then she pulls the curtains wide open.)

[Jeremy's room]

(Elena has just pulled up the curtains in his room too.)

Jeremy: Aaahh! Early. Bad!

Elena: Ahh. It's not early. (Walks up to bed and pulls his cover off.) You’re late, for work. Matt just called.

(Elena walks out of the room. Jeremy looks at the clock.)

Jeremy: Well, maybe he'll fire me.

Elena: (as walking out the door) Aim high.

(Jeremy slides down to the end of bed. Looking concerned.)

[Outside somewhere in Mystic Falls]

(Caroline talking to Elena on the phone)

Elena: What are you doing?

Caroline: Just shopping for the party you're trying to bail out on.

(Elena is walking down the stairs and goes to the kitchen)

Elena: I never said yes in the first place.

Caroline: You were never going too Which is why I planned it anyway. And my mom wants you to call her.

Elena: Did she find something?

Caroline: An animal attack in Memphis, It’s the third one this week in Tennessee.

Elena: And you're sure it's a vampire?

(Rick is in the kitchen making coffee and they exchange looks)

Caroline: Yes, but that doesn’t mean that it's Klaus.

Elena: Doesn't mean it's not. (Going round the counter, pushing Rick out of the way) I'll call her.

Caroline: Well call her on her cell.

Elena: Tell her thank you for her help.

Caroline: Alright. Well, I gotta go. I'll see you in a bit.

(Tyler walks up to Caroline.)

Elena: Oh, Caroline wait, just... keep tonight small. Please.

Caroline: Wear something pretty. (Hangs up. Tyler’s there) Hi!


Elena: Eehm! (Sighs)

Rick: (making the bed/couch) Was that eh... Stefan news?

Elena: Could be more Klaus victims. (Puts down a cup)

Rick: You certain Stefan’s still with him?

Elena: (Pouring a cup of coffee) Easy to be certain when the alternative is that he's dead. (They're silent for a second, exchanging a look) Are you sure you're still okay on the couch?

Rick: Yeah, Yeah, I'm good.

Elena: (Pick up two cups of coffee) Because you spent half the summer on it. (Walks over) If you need your own bedroom?

Rick: Eeeh, sleeping in your dead parent’s room or my dead... girlfriend’s room. Nah.

Elena: Alright (gives him a cup of coffee) Got it. (Elena starts to walk away)

Rick: Hey Elena.

Elena: (stops and looks at him)

Rick: Happy Birthday.

Elena: (half smiles) Thanks.

[Salvatore's House]

(Damon is taking a bath. And Andie is doing her make up in the mirror. Damon pours himself some champagne but finds that the bottle is empty.) Damon: We're out of champagne.

Andie: Huh. No you are out of champagne; I don't drink in the morning.

Damon: Well would you be a dear and get...

Andie: I think you can probably get it yourself. I'm not your slave.

Damon: Hmm.

(Damon gets out of the bathtub.)

Andie: I mean you're dripping a little.

Damon: Mmhmh.

(He walks out of the room. Elena comes in to the Salvatore's House. Damon comes up behind her)

Damon: Good morning.

Elena: Hey, I was gonna...

(She turns around, Damon is still naked. He smirks)

Elena: OH!

(Elena turns around again)

Elena: You heard me! You knew that I was here.

Damon: Yeah, you should learn to knock. What if I was...indecent?

(She puts one hand over her eyes and with the other hand she grabs a towel and she throws it to him as she turns around but still with one hand over her eyes. He puts the towel on and Elena peeks between her fingers to make sure he's covered up. She sees he is and drops her hand from her eyes.)

Elena: Sheriff Forbes gave us another location to check. (Pulls out a note) Memphis.

Damon: Another dead end you mean.

Elena: You don't know that.

Damon: (walks up to her) You’re right, Elena. This could be the one. After almost two months this could be the one clue that tells that Stefan is alive and well and living in Graceland.

Elena: (Takes the note) Fine, I'll go by myself. (Starts to walk away)

Damon: (Speeds up in front of her and takes the note) Right, and let Klaus know you’re tracking him. He thinks you’re dead; let's keep it that way.

Elena: It's a new lead Damon; we haven't had one in a while.

Damon: Okay, I'll check it out. If I find anything I'll call you.

Elena: But... (Damon walks away.)

(Damon walks in to his room. And opens his closet door where there's a map and a lot of notes. He pins the new note up on the map)

Damon: They moved on to Tennessee.

Andie: Huh, that fluttered victim you had me looking in to had family in Tennessee.

Damon: Which one? Pensacola?

Andie: Aha.

Damon: Up for a road trip?

Andie: (smiles) Ha, no can do, I’ve got to work. But I can see if I can get you an address. (They kiss) See you at the party.

Damon: Get me that address.

[Mystic Grill]

(Jeremy working in the back stock room moving boxes and talking to Bonnie over the phone that is on the shelf for them to see each other)

Jeremy: You need to come home it's boring around here without you.

Bonnie; Huh, you think you're bored, my dad’s side of the family is like wet paint that never dries.

Jeremy: (Smiling)

Bonnie: How's the grill treating you?

Jeremy: Well it's teaching me the value of a mundane human experience.

Bonnie: A summer job is god for you; you needed something normal in your life.

(The lights flickers and there's a strange sound)

Bonnie: What was that?

Jeremy: Nothing, look I uh... I got to go back to work. I’ll talk to you soon okay?

Bonnie: Wait, wait Jeremy. Is everything okay with you?

Jeremy: Yeah, yeah. Normal and mundane. Come home soon okay.

Bonnie: Okay (lights flickering again)

(Lights go off then they come back on Vicki is standing in front of him and he drops his phone)

Jeremy: Vicki? (She disappears)

(He's freaked out. Bends down to get his phone. Anna is standing behind him. She’s about to touch him when Matt comes barging in. Anna disappears) Matt: I need you to switch sections with me.

Jeremy: Why?

Matt: Caroline and Tyler just sat in mine.

Jeremy: So?

Matt: So. I don't feel like waiting on my ex-girlfriend. (Matt Leaves)

(Outside the grill. Caroline and Tyler are sitting at a table and talking.)

Caroline: Something’s up with your mother.

Tyler: Like what?

Caroline: When I was over yesterday she just kept eyeing me.

Jeremy: Hey Guys.

Caroline: Did Matt make you switch sections? (Jeremy just shrugs his shoulders) He thinks we're dating. Tyler: So does my mother.

Caroline: What?

Tyler: We're together all the time, it's not a leap.

Caroline: That's crazy.

Tyler: Right.

[Southern Comfort bar]

(Inside ray walks up to the bar)

Man: What’s up Ray?

Ray: Hey Red, get me a beer.

(Klaus comes up next to Ray)

Klaus: Ray? Ray Sutton?

Ray: Who wants to know?

Ray: I've been looking everywhere for you. We started in Florida, Pensacola. I met a young chap there who you used to work with before you moved to Memphis, now he directed me to two lovely young women. And they led me here, to you.

Ray: I think I’ll be going.

(He tries to go but Klaus stops him)

Klaus: Not so fast mate. You only just got here, now your type are very hard to come by.

(Ray tries to walk the other way but Stefan stands there and stops him)

Stefan: I wouldn't do that.

(He pushes him back again)

Ray: Vampires.

Klaus: Swiftly swift Ray, Yes my friend here is a vampire, he compelled everybody in the bar so don't look to them for any help. I however, I'm something else, a different kind of monster, I've got some vampire, I’ve got some wolf. Ray: You what?

Klaus: A hybrid Ray, I'm both. You see I want to create more of me, now you being the first werewolf that I’ve come across in many a moon, pun intended Ray. I need you to direct me to your pack. So, where can I find them Ray?

Ray: You can't compel me, it won't work.

(Stefan starts scratching his head, Klaus looks at him and he nods. Stefan turns around and takes out something out of his back pocket.)

Stefan: (to the bar man) Can you bring out the darts please. (To Ray) Tell you what Ray, We're gonna play a little drinking game, something I like to call truth or wolfsbane.

(He pulls out a pouch of wolfsbane, pours it into his hand crushing it with his fingers)

Klaus: Oh, this is gonna be fun Ray.

[Tennessee House]

(Damon and Rick pull up. Damon’s cell starts ringing. He checks the phone and then ignores the call) Rick: Elena? (Damon makes a face) I don't know why you just don't come clean and tell her where we are. Damon: Because Andie said this was a half lead and I don't want to get her hopes up.

Rick: Yeah, well they're all half leads, and I’m your accomplice. What do you want me to say to her, I’m practically living there.

Damon: Still sleeping on the couch? (They're looking around)

Rick: You know, I keep waiting for them to kick me out but they don't. I don't know why, it's not like I'm helping or anything. Damon: Mm-mm.

Rick: It’s quiet.

Damon: Yeah. Too quiet.

(They go inside, Damon tests the door with his foot but he is free to walk in) Damon: Oh yeah.

(Rick comes in and closes the door. He looks around. They find bodies on the living room couch)

Rick: Uuuggh. Vampire for sure.

Damon: Stefan, for sure.

Rick: How do you know?

Damon: It's his signature; there's a reason they call him the ripper. Feeds so hard he blacks out and rips them apart, but then when he's done, he feels remorse. It's the damndest thing, (He puts up his foot on Woman#1 legs) he put the bodies back together.

(He pushes with his foot on her leg and her head falls to the floor)

Rick: Back together?

Damon: Definitely Stefan.

[Salvatore's House]

}(Caroline, Elena and Tyler are there fixing the Salvatore house up for the party)

Elena: (Taking some napkins from Caroline) I feel like I have to fight Damon every single time we get a lead on Stefan.

Tyler: Maybe he doesn't want to find him.

Caroline: (looking at him in shock) Tyler!

Tyler: What? He's into you, isn't he?

Elena: The only reason Stefan left with Klaus was so that he could save Damon’s life. I mean, trust me, Damon wants to find him.

Tyler: But you kissed him? (Caroline gives him "the look") Probably screwed with his head.

Caroline: Tyler!

(Elena smiles and looks down. Caroline and Elena look at each other.)

Caroline: Sorry!

Elena: Don't worry about it, look yes I kissed him but was was a goodbye kiss. I thought he was gonna die. (Sighs)

(Tyler looks at her like "or what would I know" Elena’s phone beeps)

Elena: I missed a call from Bonnie, I'll be right back.

Caroline: (When Elena out of sight) Just because I tell you things doesn't mean you're allowed to know them!

Tyler: Sorry. I've gotta run if I'm gonna change and pick up Sophie in time.

Carolina: Wait. You're bringing a date? Slutty Sophie is your date?

Tyler: Hey! It's been kinda slow in that department. And.... I am horny all the time now!

Caroline: Yeah, tell me about it, sometimes I feel like I’m gonna explode! It's a vampire thing. Yeah, our emotions are heightened and we're on overdrive.

Tyler: It's a werewolf thing too. Just like I can't turn it off.

Caroline: Yeah. (Awkward silence) Well. Uuhh. I hope you'll get eh. Lucky tonight.

Tyler: (laughs) I'll see you later.

Caroline: Yeah, See you later.

[Tennessee House, Living room]

(Damon and Rick are there. Damon pours a tank of gasoline over the living room.)

Rick: What are you doing?

Damon: Covering their tracks. Clearly they have no interest staying in the dark, but I do.

(Rick moves to give Damon more space but the floor creaks, they look suspicious)

Damon: Hang on.

(He puts the tank of gas down and bends over and flips over the carpet and there it is a hidden door down under the floor. They open it and it’s full of chains)

Damon: Well, what do you know. Werewolves.

(They close the door, and Damon lights a match and he throws it on the floor. Soon the whole living room is on fire)

[Southern Comfort bar]

(Ray is chained to the wall, and has darts in his body. He's in a lot of pain. Stefan is sitting at the table across the wall and dipping the darts ends in wolfsbane before throwing them at him. And Klaus is just sitting next to them and watching)

Stefan: Ray, you can end this right now. Just tell me where your pack gathers for the full moon.

Ray: I can't.

Stefan: I know, I know. You live by code and all that, but see he's not gonna let me stop until you tell me. And I do whatever he says so, that’s the way it goes around here.

(Woman walking up to Klaus)

Woman: Hello mister Klaus. I have some more information for you. (Stefan hears her and walks over) You told me to tell you if I saw anything. (Stefan is eavesdropping) I saw the guys spotted Damon at the farm house.

Klaus: Well thank you Claudine, you'll just tell your friends to keep up the good work or they're gonna watch her.

(The girl walks away and Stefan comes up to Klaus)

Stefan: My brother still on our trail?

Klaus: He's getting closer, I’m gonna have to deal with that.

Stefan (Grabs Klaus's Arm) No, no, no. Let me handle it.

Klaus: Why should I let you leave?

Stefan: Cause, you'll know I'll come back.

Klaus: Do I?

Stefan: You saved my brother’s life; I'm at your service.

Klaus: Ah, you sound so tedious and indentured, aren't you even having the least bit of fun? (He points to Ray with a big smile)

Stefan: I'll make sure that my brother doesn't bother us anymore. (Then Stefan walks away)

[Salvatore's House]

(Elena stands in front of the mirror. Damon appears behind her)

Elena: Don't worry I’m not gonna lose it. At least not before the cake.

Damon: It's your party you can cry if you want to. (He walks up to her) Ah, Stefan. Such a pack rat. (He picks up a picture of Elena and Stefan. He puts it down and looks at Elena) I got you something. I know I promised not to buy you anything so don't worry I didn't pay for it.

Elena: You stole it?

Damon: No! (He picks up a little box. They stand just inches apart) Found it. (It's her necklace)

Elena: My necklace. I thought I'd never see it again.

Damon: Alaric found it in his loft, thought you'd be happy to have it back.

Elena: I am happy, Thank you.

Damon: You're welcome.

Elena: Can you?

Damon: Absolutely

(She turns around, he puts the necklace on her and she pulls up her hair he closes the necklace and she turns around; he offers his arm to her.)

Damon: Shall we?

(She takes his arm and they walk out of Stefan's room. Back downstairs the party is going on. They come down the stairs. They walk past some people standing in the hallway)

Girls: Hey Elena! Happy Birthday!

Elena: Thanks.

(They come over to the living room where there are a lot of people. A girl goes past them with a bottle in her hand. Damon stops her)

Damon: Oh, hey, hey, hey, hey. You don't want that. (He compels her) You want the cheap young stuff over by the cheap young people.

(She walks away and Caroline comes up to them)

Caroline: You like? Don't answer that.

Elena: This is keeping it small? (Caroline just keeps on smiling) What are we drinking?

(They go away arm in arm.)

(Jeremy is sitting in the couch about to light some pot when Matt comes and sits with him)

Matt: Where did you get that?

Jeremy: Henry from the kitchen sold me a dime.

(Matt takes the pot and lights it)

Matt: So, what’s got you on your spiral downward? Sure it's a lot more interesting than mine. Jeremy: You do not wanna know.

Matt: (takes a blow) How bad can it be, I already know everything else. (Passes the pot to Jeremy) Go for it.

Jeremy: You know I died right? And Bonnie used magic to bring me back to life.

Matt: Yeah, Elena told me.

Jeremy: The thing is, ever since I came back I’ve been seeing... things. Matt: What kind of things?

Jeremy: Just, things I shouldn't be seeing.

Matt: What's Bonnie say about it?

Jeremy: Nah, I haven't told her. I haven't told anybody. Just messing with my head is all. I just need to chill out, so this (Holding up the pot)

(Matt gets up. Elena and Caroline enter the room.)

Caroline: Oh...the Stoner den. Buzz kill.

(Matt comes up to them)

Matt: Hey guys.

Elena: Matt, hey!

(He kisses her on the cheek)

Elena: Oh.

Matt: Happy Birthday.

Elena: Thank you.

(Matt leaves.)

Caroline: He hates me. His hatred of me, has driven him to drugs!

Elena: He doesn’t hate you, he hates that he's not with you. (Looks over to the couch) Is that my brother?

(Elena hands Caroline her drink.)

Elena: Thank you.

(Elena walks off and Caroline watches as she takes a sip of her drink.)

(Outside on the porch, Damon and Rick are talking)

Rick: I am every parent’s worst nightmare. I am the chaperone teacher from hell.

Damon: I love high school parties.

Rick: Isn't Andie supposed to be coming?

Damon: 10 o'clock broadcast, should be here in a little bit.

(Elena comes out)

Damon: Hello ,Birthday Girl!

Elena: Drink! (Takes Damon glass) Jeremy's smoking again.

Damon: Is his stash any good?

Elena: (Gives him the evil eye) You're an ass. (Looks at Rick) Talk to him, please. He looks up to you. (Give's back the glass and walks away)

Damon: You’re screwed.

Rick: Ahw.

Andie: Okay, Okay. Seriously who'd...? What the hell are you doing?

(No answer... And the light is turned off)

Andie: Hello? Hello?

(She starts to run for the exit but falls over a wire. The light comes back on and she can see a person standing in front of the light. She gets up and tries to run, bet Stefan is suddenly in front of her)

(She gets scared and he starts to transform.)

[Salvatore’s House]

(Party is in action, on the dance floor are Tyler and Sophie dancing. Caroline is standing on the edge looking at them,and drinking. Matt comes up next to her)

Matt: Since when are they a thing?

Caroline: I thought you were ignoring me?

Matt: I'm not ignoring you.

Caroline: You only said five words to me all summer, and those were four of them.

Matt: Maybe because every time I’ve seen you, you’ve been with him.

Caroline: Because he's my friend! Which is what I thought you were

Matt: Aren't you guys supposed to be like mortal enemies, I mean isn't that how it works in vampire werewolf universe?

Elena: I was just looking for Damon.

Caroline: Well, he better be here somewhere because we haven't even done the cake yet.

Elena: I think i'm gonna pass on the whole cake thing.

Caroline: What? no, no way, no! It's your birthday! You know it's the dawn of a new day and, you can't get on with your life until you have made a wish and blown out the candles.

Elena: Is that what you all want me to do? Just get on with my life?

Caroline: No... Maybe... I just don't think anyone wants to see you like this.

Elena: I'm not gonna give up on finding Stefan, Caroline.

Caroline: Of course not. And you shouldn't, but you have to admit that you kinda just letting your life pass you by. And isn't Stefan the one who wanted to make sure that you lived it?

Elena: You want me to make a wish? I just wanna know that he's alive. That's it! That's my wish.

(She starts to walk away, but she sees Damon’s closet door is open a little bit and goes up to it and opens it)

Caroline: I'm sorry, okay. I'm just drunk and dumb tonight. Wait, what are you doing..,?

(She sees all the notes and maps and articles that Damon has used to search for Klaus and Stefan. Caroline comes up to her too)

Matt: What's wrong?

Jeremy: You know what, maybe we should just walk.

(Caroline seems a little bit drunk. She tries to walk through the crowd)

Caroline: Excuse me. Excuse me.

(She grabs a guy by the neck and lifts him so she can pass. Tyler intercepts her)

Tyler: Hey! What is your problem?! You're pissed that I brought someone?

Caroline: Why would I be pissed? You brought a date. You're dating. That's...awesome.

Tyler: Ok, should I not be dating?

Caroline: Hey, you're horny all the time, right? I mean, a guy has needs.

Tyler: 'Cause if I shouldn't be dating, all you've got to do is say something. If you don't say something, then I'm going to keep dating.

Caroline: What would I say?

Tyler: Don't do that, Caroline! I've already been there once with you, ok, and you said no. You shut me down. I’m not going back there again unless you make it crystal clear that you...

(She kisses him)

Tyler: Let's get out of here.

(Damon enters his bedroom. Elena's here)

Damon: What? What are you doing here?

Elena: Why didn't you tell me? Why did you keep it a secret?

Damon: Can we not do this right now? I'm having a really bad night.

Elena: All summer, every single time I came to you with a lead, you made me feel like an idiot for having hope.

Damon: You were an idiot. We both were.

Elena: Tell me what you know, Damon.

Damon: I know you need to get back to your party, Elena.

Elena: We're supposed to be in this together. Why didn't you tell me that you've been tracking Klaus' victimes?

Damon: Because they're not Klaus' victims, Elena, they're Stefan's!

Elena: What?

Damon: He's left a trail of body parts up and down the eastern seaboard.

Elena: No. You're wrong.

Damon: I've seen it happen before. He's flipped the switch, full blown ripper.

Elena: Stop it, Damon.

Damon: No, you stop, Elena! Stop looking for him. Stop waiting for him to come home. Just stop! Stefan is gone and he's not coming back. Not in your lifetime.

(He leaves. Elena cries and touches her necklace)

[Gilbert's house]

(Jeremy and Matt are in the kitchen, eating ice cream)

Matt: All right, I should probably go before Elena and Mr. Saltzman come home and see what a bad example I am.

Jeremy: You sure you can walk?

Matt: We'll see. Can I take the ice cream with me?

(He takes it and start to leave but stops)

Matt: What happened in the car, man?

Jeremy: Nothing.

Matt: Come on, man. You said, "Vicki". All right, you said my sister's name. Why? You said you were seeing things?

Jeremy: I've been seeing her.

Matt: I mean, I think I see her all the time, too. It's 'cause I miss her so much, though. You know, like, I want to see her so I do. Look, I know we've got our hands full with all the supernatural stuff in this town, but... Ghosts.

Jeremy: Like I said, my head's all messed up.

(Matt smiles and leaves)

[A bar]

(Ray is on a pool table.)

Klaus: Ok, it's a three step process, Ray. This is step one. I want you to drink from my wrist.

Ray: I already told you where to find the pack. What more do you want from me?

Klaus: Have you been listening to a word I've been saying, Ray? I have great plans for you.

(He cuts his wrist and makes him drink his blood)

Klaus: You'll thank me for it later, huh. There we go, at a boy!

(Stefan arrives)

Ray: What are you going to do now?

Klaus: It's time for step two, Ray.

(He kills him and looks at Stefan)

Klaus: You’re back.

Stefan: Did you doubt me?

Klaus: Not for a second. I knew you’d pass the test. You still care for your brother, for your old life.

Stefan: Nah, I don’t care about anything anymore.

Klaus: You put on a good show Stefan. I almost believe you. Lets hope, for your brother’s sake, he does. You never stop caring about family, do you. But, every time you feed, the blood makes it easier to let go.

[Gilbert's House]

(Alaric is packing. Elena arrives)

Elena: What are you doing?

Alaric: Ahh. I'm not going to stay here anymore.

Elena: What? Why?

Alaric: I'm not a role model. You know, I drink too much, I say the wrong things, I encourage bad behavior. At school I can pull it together, but in my own life.. The way I miss Jenna, it's just, I'm really not any good to anybody right now. I'm sorry, Elena. You're 18. You can do all this alone now. You can do it better without me.

(He leaves)

[Lockwood's mansion]

(Tyler and Caroline kiss and take their clothes off. Caroline, in her undrwear, pushes Tyler on the bed and jumps on him and kisses him.)

[A bar]

(Stefan goes outside and takes his phone to call someone)

[Gilbert's house]

(Elena enters her bedroom and finds a drawing from Jeremy for her birthday. She prepares to go to bed. Her phones vibrates. She doesn't notice it immediately. Stefan walks outside. He takes out his phone and calls Elena. She puts the card from Jeremy on her chest of drawers and walks into her bathroom, putting her hair up. She comes out and answers her phone. Stefan stays silent.)

Elena: Hello? Hello? Stefan? Stefan, if this is you, you’ll be okay. I love you Stefan. Hold onto that. Never let that go.

(Stefan stays quiet on the other end of the phone but is tearful)

(Lockwood Mansion)

(Tyler is asleep. Caroline gets up, puts her dress on, takes her shoes and leaves the room. She goes downstairs and is about to leave but Carol Lockwood intercepts her. Caroline gasps.)

Caroline: Mrs. Lockwood. Hi.

Carol: Leaving so soon?

Caroline: I... I didn't mean to be so... I mean, we were just... I'm going to just... Get my purse. Ok.

(Caroline grabs her purse, but the purse burns her.)

(Carol shoots her numerous times. Caroline finally falls on the floor, uncouscious.)
