|Early morning on earth at the witch house, Caroline is sitting in the shadow and looking at her daylight ring. She is apparently angry over something, and she keeps putting on and off her ring. A while later Tyler walks downstairs and sees Caroline. Asks if she's okay, but is surprised when she angrily replies what would he think. Upon this he decides to go out, but Caroline rushes to stop him. Tyler says he can't believe she's jealous of Katherine. Caroline asks if this is his way to make her get over the Klaus thing. Tyler says he wouldn't do such thing. Then looks in Caroline's eyes and says he thought she knew him. Then he walks near Caroline and goes out. After looking at him walking away for a while, she turns inside and sees Katherine. Angrily scolds her, but Katherine says she needs to cut him some slack. He had to let his mother go last night. His life is in danger, she dumped him because of something he did to save everyone. She's not helping anyone with all this teenage drama. He knows what he wants, and if she wants him too, she needs to put herself together and grow up. Otherwise all she gets to look will always be his behind. After saying this Katherine walks out, leaving Caroline speechless and extremely confused.
Tyler goes to something like a drinking fountain and starts drinking water. But suddenly he jumps back with pain. Katherine arrives and asks what is going on. Tyler looks at the flowing water, and says it's vervain. Katherine looks at the water too, as she is confused.
Misao enters Tatia's room. Tatia follows her inside and closes the door. Then turns to Misao and looks at her.
Tatia: "What do you want, Misao?"
Misao: "I want to talk about the fugitives. I heard one of them was captured in your lands by your men."
Tatia: "That's true."
Misao: "Why didn't you report it?"
Tatia: "Didn't know you were after him, until he escaped."
Misao: "So he escaped." (Tatia nods) "Who was he?"
Tatia: "Damon Salvatore. You know him?"
Misao: (smiles sinisterly) "The young vampire with an amazing history with your descendants. Of course I know him."
Tatia: "So it's true."
Tatia: "Elena is my descendant."
Misao: "And you're okay with him dating her?"
Tatia: "I'm never okay with him dating anyone."
Misao: "Then why don't you do something about it?"
Tatia: "I can't." (when Misao looks like asking why not, Tatia explains) "He's out of my territories. And I'm not authorized to do cross border missions."
Misao: "If you were, would you be able to find him?"
Tatia: (hesitates for a while) "I managed to obtain a tool that belongs to him. By using that I'm channeling to his energy and I'm locating him."
Misao: "Can I see this tool?"
Misao: "Just to make sure."
Tatia: (with a more strict tone) "No!"
Misao: (smiles) "You're lucky I know you're not lying to me." (Tatia looks at her) "I'll give you the clearance you need. Do whatever it takes to capture Damon."
Tatia: "Why?" (Misao looks at her) "Why are you trusting me with your mission?"
Misao: "Because I know you'll do it. You want revenge, and I give you the chance. Something tells me you won't miss it." (Tatia looks convinced) "But I have one condition."
Misao: "You're gonna kill him on sight. You won't lose time, you won't hesitate. No capture, no nothing. You see him, you kill him. Understand?"
Tatia looks at Misao for a while, then slowly nods. Upon this Misao turns around and leaves the room. As she walks out of the door, Tatia looks at her necklace, then turns behind to get Damon's shirt.
Klaus, Elena and Bonnie are sitting in their cells. Apparently Bonnie just told Elena how they ended up here.
Elena: (after looking around helplessly for a while) "I can't believe all you guys came here for me."
Klaus: "It was your lovely cousin's idea."
Elena: (looks at Bonnie) "Where is June now?"
Bonnie: "Caroline and Tyler stayed behind. Someone had to protect the bodies."
Elena: "And they are looking out for her." (sarcastically) "Well that's great." (Bonnie looks at her weirdly. Elena continues.) "What? I mean it, they are just the perfect parents for her. Both love being a vampire, and June loves vampires. It's a perfect match!"
Klaus suddenly catches the sarcasm and starts laughing. Upon this Bonnie understands too, and feels down.
Bonnie: "A little thank you would have sufficed."
Elena: (angrily) "Thank you? For what? For this great rescue? For getting ourselves trapped in these prisons with no way out? You want me to thank you for that? Okay, fine, thank you Bonnie! Thank you very much indeed!"
Klaus looks at Elena weirdly. Bonnie is apparently upset.
Bonnie: "What is your problem?"
Elena: "I never asked you to save me, okay?"
Bonnie: (angrily) "Why you ungrateful b..."
Elena: "I let myself die to keep you safe, and now what? Is this how you thank me? You should have mourned me Bonnie! Let me go! But no! No one can let poor Elena go because she always needs saving! Don't you get it Bonnie, I don't need any saving, I don't want!.. to be saved!"
After an awkward silence, Klaus speaks.
Klaus: "I'll let June know of this conversation, word by word."
Elena: (suddenly gets upset, but tries to stay strong) "Don't you speak her name!"
Klaus: "She was the one who convinced me to help them save you. But since you don't want to be saved, I think she has a right to know, so that she won't wait for you." (upon this Elena gets upset. And Bonnie looks at Klaus, apparently confused) "I lost my family. I know the feeling. And now June is trying to hold on to one thing she had left." (looks at Elena) "You want something to fight for, Elena? Fight for her! Because she's the only one you have left too." (realizes that Bonnie is looking at him. After a quick glance, looks back at Elena) "Family above all."
Elena sadly falls on her knees, clearly having an emotional conflict, while Bonnie is looking at Klaus, apparently impressed, and touched.
Tyler: (realizes this) "It's okay, no one's following us."
Katherine: "Yeah, I noticed." (looks at Tyler) "You know Caroline hates me, right?"
Tyler: "You killed her. What were you expecting?"
Katherine: "Okay, I had that coming. But she's pushing her luck too much."
Tyler: (apparently confused) "What happened?"
Katherine: "Look, I have my priorities. And right now, it's surviving."
Tyler: "It's actually always your biggest priority. And that is the reason you're with us now."
Katherine: "See, with clear judgement, one can realize this, can't they?"
Tyler: "Did she say something to you?"
Katherine: "Talk to your girlfriend, Tyler. Otherwise I'm gonna have to, and it will not end up nice!" (walks away)
Katherine: "I can't deal with her jealousy issues, okay! You go to her and tell her to make up her mind or you'll move on to someone else. Because if she comes to me again, things will get ugly!"
Tyler looks behind Katherine for a moment, then follows her back to the witch house.
Back on earth, it's late night. The gang has gathered outside the blood bank, and waiting for a moment they can make their move. Samara reminds them that they can't kill anyone. Regardless of the conversation she made with the fake sheriff, the truce still somehow stands. Katherine rolls her eyes, and says everyone got it. There is no need to repeat it for the millionth time. After waiting a little while, Tyler asks if they should go now. Samara says not just yet. Then focuses, and creates a little fog that surrounds the building. Tyler looks at the building for a while, and says they should go now. Samara repeats not yet. Suddenly a little rock hits the glass at the entrance. It doesn't break it, but it draws the attention of the two securities inside.
Security 1: "What was that?"
Security 2: "I don't know." (they get up and walk towards the entrance. Suddenly security 2 is interested in something else) "What is that fog?"
They walk out, and one of them finds the rock.
Security 1: "Just some rock."
Security 2: "Something's not right."
Security 1: "What? Kids outside at this hour?"
Security 2: "No, this fog. It doesn't make sense. It's just not the correct temperature for it."
Security 1: "And what are you now, weather news reporter? Come on, get inside!"
The two arrive to the building, and Katherine says they've got more or less half hour. Tyler says half hour is more than enough. Then asks the others if they are coming. Samara tells Caroline to go with them, and she will make sure these guys and the fog will stay exactly as they are right now. Caroline says she'll stay and help Samara, but Samara angrily tells her to go with them. Caroline angrily and reluctantly agrees, and walks with Katherine and Tyler inside the building.
Damon and Ulma arrive to the rebel base. Ulma asks what happens if he cannot find Bonnie. Will he wait forever until he finds a witch, or will he try his chances by following an actual lead he's got. As far as they know Shi no Shi is the only place that Elena could be. Damon turns to her and says what if this is all a trick. What if she's setting him up. Ulma looks at him and says he's too paranoid. Damon says it's what keeps him alive. And right now he has to stay alive for Elena. He'll be no good to her if he's dead. So he has no luxury to jump into suicide missions.
As they walk inside, Damon says even if he fails to find a witch, he can always find a kitsune. After all this place is supposed to be crawling with them. Upon this Ulma smiles barely, and says she wouldn't be so eager to meet them. Damon says why not. Ulma replies because they are too powerful and not to be messed with. Damon says he's not afraid of them. Ulma looks at him and says she would think a man at his age and experience would be smarter. Damon looks at her and says he is. But this is not something they haven't done before. Ulma curiously asks what is not something they haven't done before. Damon says hunting a kitsune. As Ulma looks at him with shock, he says he's even sure that the kitsune they took down was the other strongest one. Suddenly the guard at the entrance interferes and asks if he's talking about Misao. Damon says he is. Ulma and the guard look at each other with shock. Then Ulma asks if he's telling the truth. Damon says he is, and adds why would he lie about such thing. Ulma says this is big news, so she wants to make sure. Damon says he did take down Misao, but when he did, he had his friends with him. By himself he doesn't stand any chance either.
Sheriff and the deputies arrive to the blood bank, and sheriff goes to the two securities to ask them what they remember. Securities tell him that they heard a noise outside, and went to check it out. That's all they remember. Sheriff stand up, and quietly says vampires. Then tells the deputy near him to get them to the infirmary. Then walks to another deputy that walked outside the building. The deputy tells that there is no damage, except massive amount of stolen blood bags. Sheriff says so it is vampires. Deputy agrees. Sheriff, after thinking what to do for a while, tells the deputy to find two more guys, get some vervain and wait here until morning. Deputy nods, and he walks away.
The vampires and Samara leave the blood bags they've got to the frigde in Samara's place. After everyone except Tyler and Caroline left, Tyler suddenly turns to Caroline.
Tyler: "What is going on with you?"
Caroline: "Nothing, I'm perfect."
Tyler: "I'm serious Caroline. You've been acting all weird all day and everyone's disturbed by it!"
Caroline: "Well, we wouldn't wanna disturb your beloved now, would we!"
Tyler: "Are you jealous of Katherine?"
Caroline: (turns to him) "You fancy her, Tyler! You look up to her!"
Tyler: "It's because she's strong! She's 500 years old, Caroline! And for all we know she might even be the strongest vampire alive! We need her, and I'm trying to get on well with her."
Caroline: "Does that supposed to make it okay?"
Tyler: "Remind me which one of us was the one who wanted a break."
Caroline: "Oh I'm sorry if I didn't feel all slutty, sleeping with you, then Klaus, then jumping back on your bones!"
Tyler: "You slept with him?"
Caroline: "No, but we kissed all the time, and I can't just get over it!"
Tyler: (looks directly into Caroline's eyes) "Then make up your mind, Caroline. Or I'll move on to someone else."
As he starts walking away, Caroline asks with disgust.
Caroline: "To who? Katherine?"
Tyler: (turns to Caroline, and looks with no emotion at all) "Why not?"
Then continues to walk away, leaving Caroline in shock.
Unaware of what's happening outside, Damon, Ulma, Nathan and Max are inside the room that they were in when they figured Elena could be in Shi no Shi.
Nathan: "When Meredith said she thought you might have taken down the guardian, I laughed. It just didn't seem right."
Max: "So you and others, together you took down Misao?"
Damon: "It wasn't exactly a walk in the park, but yeah, we did it."
Ulma looks at everyone with a happiness that she tries to cover but fails.
Ulma: "Damon, this is really big. Misao is Inari's most trusted man. That's why she faced with many who tried to bring Inari down. She stopped the most massive forces, she faced with the most dangerous creatures that these lands has ever seen. She eliminated all of them, all by herself. She is considered invincible."
Nathan: "More than that, some even consider her god."
Damon: "Well, I haven't seen any gods, but I'm sure they don't dress like her."
Ulma: "We have to find Bonnie."
Damon: "I thought you said Inari would kill her."
Ulma: "She would, but not like that."
Nathan: "Witches remain even after they are killed. Inari is said to have haunted by the witches she massacred for years, until she build Shi no Shi."
Damon: "Death of the death."
Nathan: "They brought every dead soul back to life, and locked them down until they died naturally of old age."
Damon: "So that's what they're gonna do with Bonnie?"
Ulma: "Chances are yes."
Max: "If she isn't dead already." (everyone looks at him) "Don't look at me like that. It's been three days since the phantoms were released. If Bonnie's powers don't work on them.."
Damon: "..which they don't.."
Max: "There's a big chance she might have been killed by one of them."
Ulma: "But even if she's dead, the kitsune won't let her stay that way. They would bring her back."
Damon: "So Shi no Shi is the one place we would find her."
Nathan: "If we assume she's killed."
Ulma: (looks at Damon, who is apparently lost in thought) "Damon, you'd know your friend. Could she have survived this long?" (After the silence continues) "We can't dare an attack to that building without you or Meredith. So if we're doing this, it's gonna be up to you. Please say something." (Upon this everyone looks at him)
Damon: (after a disturbingly long silence) "It seems there's a lot going on in that building. I guess it's time we take a closer look."
Ulma looks at him with relief, then turns to Max.
Ulma: "Max, put the word out. Get everyone ready."
Max nods, then leaves the room while others are looking at him. There's clearly a lot of tension in the room.
Even though they all said the same thing individually, apparently no one is happy about it, as they all remain silent forever.
