will be written
|Early in the morning, half blood angels spread into town. Elena's, Bonnie's, Salvatores', Matt's, and Natalie's doors are knocked by different angels. When the doors are opened, all those who knocked said the same thing to whoever was at the door.
Knockers: "They're coming!"
In no time, all nine half bloods and the Mystic Falls gang met somewhere in the forest. Stephan saw Natalie as she came closer. She looked a bit hangover. Seeing Damon near her, he understood what they've been doing all night.
Stephan: (jokingly) "Rough night?"
Natalie: (smiled) "Shut up!"
Stephan: (eventually everyone else came. Stephan looked around) "We all are... here." (spoke to everyone) "I suppose you know what this meeting is all about. Pure bloods are coming to Mystic Falls."
Damon: "Where are they?"
Arnold: "I saw them coming, they are on their way. They should be here by the darkness falls."
Stefan: "What'll we do when they come?"
Stephan: "Their priority will be taking June and going away, with the least interaction possible."
Damon: "Does anyone have any clue how they learned about June?"
Natalie: "Shouldn't be so hard."
Brigitte: "When word got around that another Petrova doppelganger was alive, it didn't just draw the attention of old vampires. Pure blood angels were interested as well."
Arnold: "As nature intended, there shouldn't have been any pure bloods left by now. They were all meant to be half bloods during the generations. But they used disgusting methods to remain pure and now everything they did is about to pay off."
Gary: "Doppelganger is a loophole in the rules of nature. Whatever nature forbids, it can be done by using dark magic and blood from the doppelganger."
Elena: "So they want to make hybrids with other species by using my energy?"
Meredith: "That's correct. But until they learned where the doppelganger was, she was already a vampire. But they knew there was another way, so they searched the doppelganger's bloodline and they found June. Now they are coming for her."
Gary: "But we cannot let them have June, because if allowed, they could create a hybrid of all the known species in the world, and the last offspring will be something like god. Nature would never withstand that kind of power."
Damon: "I thought hybrids were the worst."
Nick: "You mean, vampire-werewolf hybrids?" (scoffed) "Don't be ridiculous!"
Stephan: "This is our reason to stop them. You should keep in mind that pure bloods won't hesitate to kill, even us angels."
Stefan: "Because their wings could easily destroy your phantoms."
Stephan: "So whatever the reason is you're getting involved, it should be something good enough that would worth your life. Because what we're walking into is not some street fight. This is life and death, in the most literal sense."
Natalie: "Do we even have a strike plan?"
Stephan: "Yes, and that is why I called you here. Angels will want to have June and leave. So protecting her will be our highest priority. The rest is up to brute force."
Damon: "Now you're talking."
Christian: "Pure bloods know that we have a vampire. Peter escaped from Damon, and that's all they know. So Stefan, Caroline and Elena will be a surprise to them. We have to use that wisely."
Christian: "If we stay up long enough, that will break them at one point and they will want to use their wings of destruction to destroy us. But in order to use them, they must be on the ground, that is when we will make our move. If we can manage to rip the wings from their body, that will leave them powerless and defenseless."
Damon: "That is some plan!"
Nick: "Tell us if you got anything better!"
Damon: "Give me a day and I will."
Ashley: "We don't have a day."
Stefan: "What is wings of destruction?"
Arnold: "Wings of destruction is basically the most powerful weapon in the entire universe. It can be used to destroy a pencil, or a planet!"
Arnold: "It just depends on how good the angel can focus."
Stefan: "Wha.. How are we supposed to know that they're gonna use their wings of destruction?"
Ashley: "Angel wings appear by voice. They have to say it out loud when they want to use any of their wings."
Stephan: "So we, and especially you guys, need to keep your ears open."
Damon: "So that's all we can do? Try not to get ourselves killed, and hope that they will intend to use their wings of destruction?"
Stephan: "Yes. That's all we can. But we can do something to increase our chances. Damon, can you speak to the sheriff and make him impose a curfew for tonight?"
Damon: "I'll talk to him."
Stephan: "Good, and Matt, you will stay with June and protect her. June will block the powers of whoever comes to her, and you are the only one who is strong enough to take them down as humans."
Matt: "Got it."
Bonnie: "What about me, what can I do?"
Stephan: "Your powers will not work on angels, so you can only help us by helping Matt protect her, also you can provide June extra power in case she needs any."
Elena: "Extra power for what?"
Stephan: "Which brings me to the main event. June, can you create a psychic connection between us?"
June: "Can I do that?"
Stephan: "Yes you can, but can you do it?"
June: "I don't know, I never tried it before."
Elena: "What is that?"
Stephan: "If she can do it, it'll connect our minds to each other. That way we will hear each other's thoughts, so that we can make more organised attacks. It'll give us an advantage."
Damon: "Sounds great!"
Stephan: "If she can do it it's definitely great."
Meredith: "But in order to do it she has to be somewhere where she can see all of us."
Elena: "We can use my father's office."
Stephan: "Is it safe?"
Elena: "Mirrored glasses, so they won't be seeing what's inside."
Christian: "That doesn't matter, because they will sense her."
Stephan: "I'm saying if things go bad there must be somewhere to hide."
Damon: (remembering an unpleasant memory) "It has a basement."
Stephan: "Good, that'll work. And us angels will keep asking for our wings. That would be the best thing ever if any of us could manage to unlock it."
Elena: "So let alone victory, our survival depends on pure luck?"
Gary: (inhaled deeply) "I'm afraid so."
Natalie: (to Stephan, desperately) "What else can we do?"
Stephan: "What else can we do? If any of you are religious you'd better start praying. Because at the end of night, we might need a serious act of god!"
Everyone in the forest looked at each other, feeling an intense pressure.
Damon went to see the sheriff. Seeing him coming from a distance, he stopped whatever he was doing and waited for him to come. They oddly looked at each other as he walked inside and sat in front of him. Eventually sheriff spoke.
Aiden: "Having you here shouldn't be sign of good news."
Damon: "As much as that sounds biased, you're right. We have a problem. Biggest kind."
Aiden: "What's going on?"
Damon: "You wouldn't believe me if I told you."
Aiden: (chuckled angrily) "It's been less than half a year since I found out about werewolves and hybrids. So I think I can take pretty much anything."
Damon: (looked at him with an odd silence for a moment) "The town is going to be attacked by angels."
Aiden: (in confusion) "What?" (Damon made a face indicating this was the exact reaction he expected. Sheriff continued) "Angels.. Angels are going to attack Mystic Falls. We're talking about the real kind of angels, that are from heaven."
Damon: "No, we're talking about people who call themselves angels because of their immense beauties and snow white wings."
Aiden: "Was that sarcasm?"
Aiden: "You're serious."
Damon: "You need to impose a curfew for tonight. Or a lot of people are gonna die."
Aiden looked at Damon for a while. Then rubbed his forehead with confusion and stress.
Aiden: "I'll see what I can."
Damon: (got up) "Well you've got until before darkness falls." (Aiden looked at him with shock) "Better be quick."
Then he left as sheriff looked behind him in shock.
Antonio: "What's going on?"
Bonnie looked at him and shook her head, meaning she can't tell. Antonio took a deep breath and texted again.
Antonio: "Come over here. Let's talk about it."
Bonnie texted back.
Bonnie: "I can't tell."
After Antonio read it, he looked at Bonnie, and noticed she was turning off her phone. Feeling helpless and left out, he breathed deeply for a while, then pushed his meal away, to the other side of the table, meaning he won't eat either. Bonnie noticed it and felt heartbroken, but she didn't do anything.
Meredith was standing before her window and looking outside. Christian came near her and gently touched her back. Meredith slowly looked at him, then leaned him. Damon and Gary were at the grill, drinking quietly and stressfully. Natalie was looking at the mirror numbly, feeling incredibly desperate. Rest of the angels weren't doing good as well.
Bonnie: (tried to smile) "Hi."
Bonnie: "Listen, um.. I'm sorry I avoided you all day."
Antonio: "We had two classes together today. You didn't attend any of 'em. I know you've been avoiding me, I just.. don't know why." (Bonnie looked down) "Is this about... Was everything okay with Elena and Caroline?"
Bonnie: "It's not about it. It's just, I.. Look, something's going on."
Antonio: "I know."
Bonnie: "And for reasons I can't tell, I can't have you get involved with them."
Antonio: "I.. I don't understand. Are you breaking up?"
Bonnie: "No! No, Antonio, don't think that!"
Antonio: "Only yesterday you said you trusted me. But now you're acting completely opposite."
Bonnie: (felt cornered) "There are things in my life, that I'm just not ready to tell yet."
Antonio: "Will you eventually tell me?"
Bonnie: "I want to."
Antonio: (nodded) "Okay. If you're not ready.."
Bonnie: "Thank you." (he nodded slowly) "Just promise me one thing."
Bonnie: "When you get home today, lock the doors, and stay away from windows."
Antonio: (confused) "What?"
Bonnie: "And no matter what happens, do not go outside!"
Antonio: "Bonnie, what.."
Bonnie: (interrupted him) "Just do it!"
Then walked away.
Antonio: "What are you talking about, what is this?" (Bonnie didn't stop. Antonio raised his voice) "Bonnie!"
She didn't even slow down. Antonio was incredibly confused.
Arnold: "I lost them behind the buildings. They could be here any minute."
Natalie: "Then it's time."
Stephan: "They must have already sensed us, we should wait outside."
Nick: (looked at Matt) "Where is everyone else?"
Matt: "School is just over, they should.."
Suddenly the door is knocked. Ashley opened it, and Elena and June entered.
Nick: "Thank god."
Elena: "Bonnie is on her way too."
June: "Where do I stand?"
Stephan: "There, just near the window. Remember, we should all be somewhere in your sight."
June: "I know."
Elena realized June was very nervous.
Elena: "June, if you're not ready for this.."
June: (interrupted her) "I am."
Stephan: "Okay, let's head outside."
As everyone headed outside, Elena and Matt looked at each other. Matt understood that Elena wanted him to look out for her, and nodded reassuringly. Upon this Elena smiled barely, and joined the others. As they had gathered outside, Gary and Damon were walking towards them.
Damon: "I know, but why close the grill?"
Gary: "Even grill, Damon. That's why it's called a curfew."
Damon: (slightly annoyed) "Who's idea was it again?"
Meanwhile they had arrived near rest of them.
Elena: "Has it ever occurred to you that we might need you sober here?"
Gary: "She has a point."
Damon and Natalie looked at each other with encouraging smiles.
A few seconds later the door opened and his dad walked in. There were a flat paper bag in his hand that seemed like hospital x-ray results, and in the other hand he had a mineral water. Antonio was surprised that he would be outside.
Mr. Wilder: "You just came too?"
Antonio: "Yeah. Where were you?" (pointed the flat bag) "What's that?"
Mr. Wilder: "Ah, you know the other day I was going kind of cray cray."
Mr. Wilder: "So I went to hospital today, to see what was going on with me, you know."
Antonio: (anxiously) "And?"
Mr. Wilder: "And, good Doctor Fell said there's nothing wrong with me at all." (Antonio exhaled with relief. Then his father took a small bottle with some kind of fluid in it) "She just advised me to take a few drops of this with my coffee every morning."
Antonio: (surprised) "You don't drink coffee."
Mr. Wilder: "That's what I said. She said I could drink it with anything I want, but it has a bitter taste, and coffee covers it's flavor, so it's better with coffee."
Antonio: (quickly raised his eyebrows, meaning he understood. Then took the bottle from his father) "So what is this?"
Mr. Wilder: (while taking off his jacket and hanging it to the coat rack) "She said vervain."
Mr. Wilder: "Yeah." (took his hand to Antonio's shoulder) "Come on, let's get inside. There's a curfew tonight so we should lock the doors and stay inside."
Antonio: (surprised and confused) "What? What curfew?"
Mr. Wilder: "They've been announcing it on radio and tv all day."
Antonio was incredibly confused, as that was exactly what Bonnie said but she didn't mention a curfew. He stood there for a while, then locked the door and went inside.
Bonnie: "Hey." (looked outside as she came near them) "How are we doing?"
Matt looked back outside, and made a move with his head, indicating he has no idea. Meanwhile outside, Stefan and Caroline had also arrived and joined the angels. As they were all standing quietly, waiting for the pure bloods, Nick weirdly looked at Natalie, who was behind Damon and looking at his back.
Nick: "Natalie, will you please mind your thoughts?"
Natalie: "Sorry, it's.. kind of distracting."
Everyone started grinning and smiling.
Elena: "Oh my god."
Nick: "Yes but hearing your opinions about Damon's ass isn't exactly what I call motivation."
Matt: (from the office, to June) "Maybe you were a bit early to connect their minds."
June: (with a mischievous smile) "I think you're right."
Gary: (to Natalie, with a smile) "Come here Nat."
Damon and Natalie looked at each other naughtily as she went near Gary.
Jessica: (after looking around curiously) "Half bloods have prepared."
Peter: "Yeah. They knew we were coming."
David: (pointed a street a few blocks ahead) "They should be there."
Amy: "That leads to town center."
Thom: "Smart move for them."
David: "The curfew will give us an advantage. Smart move indeed, but it'll help us more."
Amy: "Poor things."
Suddenly they came into the sight of half bloods. All nine of them were standing in a threatening manner. Vampires weren't near them. David saw them, and as soon as they got close enough, he spoke.
David: "Gaaary! Long time no see! How have you been?" (Gary was looking at him emotionless) "I see you've assembled a team. It's brave of you, I'll give you that one, to stand up against me like that. Kind of naive. Still, points for effort." (rest of them anxiously looked at each other) "I hope you've made a really good plan. Because this little gang can never be a match to my team!"
Gary: "We're not a gang."
Amy: (mockingly surprised) "Ah look at him, he talks!"
Gary: "And I know we're no match to you. That's why I made a few upgrades!" (as soon as he said that, Caroline, Elena, Stefan and Damon showed up and with half bloods at one side, they formed a circle around pure bloods. Pure bloods looked at them nervously at first, then at each other. Noticing this, brought a naughty smile to Gary's face) "Four vampires, who just fed on angel blood!"
David: (looked at Gary) "You know, every action has it's consequences. Now if vampires know the taste of angel blood, whatever comes next will be on you."
Gary: "Yeah well at least I'm not screwing my own sister!"
David: "That's what we did for generations. That's how your mom was born. It's the only way we remain powerful."
Gary: "I don't put power before my morals!"
David: "But you'd do anything to get this kind of power, wouldn't you."
Gary: "I'd die first!"
David: "Gary, my friend. You have all the wrong impressions about us. We're not here to hurt anyone!"
Gary: "Except the girl."
David: "What do you want me to say? For every cause there must be a sacrifice."
Gary: "Not for your cause. Not this girl."
David: "Do you really think you can stop us?"
Gary: "Either way I'll try until I'm dead!"
Jessica: (quietly, to herself) "This is taking too long."
David: (with a not so pleasant, but rather cold voice) "Have it your way."
With a quick move, he raised his hands to make them horizontal and his palms turned to Gary. Then a sudden energy blast took Gary's feet from ground. Angels looked in shock as Gary flew above them and fell behind them. Luckily, Damon was fast enough to grab him before he hit the ground, but he had blacked out due to the impact.
As soon as they put themselves together, they turned to pure bloods with in anger.
Elena jumped to Jessica and managed to grab her foot. Then quickly climbed to her back and bit her one wing. Jessica lost balance and both fell to the ground. Then she made her wings disappear to protect them from harm. They quickly got up and started fist fighting.
Stephan ran to the top of a parking car and jumped to catch Amy. However, as soon as Stephan grabbed her, Amy started flying up and in no time she took intense height. Stephan couldn't help yelling with fear.
Stefan left Caroline alone against Thom and ran to David. But David dodged his attack without even looking as if he saw it coming, force pushed him towards half bloods, then called his wings of wind. A powerful storm immediately took everyone's feet from the ground for a second. Suddenly Damon came running from his right and hit him with vampire speed. David lost balance and fell. And the storm ended quickly. Damon tried to attack David again, but David held his punches in the air, hit him with his head, kicked him away, then called his wings to fly up.
Meanwhile Elena punched Jessica and she fell near Brigitte and Ashley. They stood up and faced her. But suddenly she felt a presence behind her. Even though there was seemingly no one, June, Bonnie and Matt were quick to understand they were spotted. She started running to the office, which made the three back down towards the basement. Elena understood she sensed June and started running to her with vampire speed. But before she could reach her, Peter arrived from air and hit Elena with his both feet. Elena hit a car nearby. And Jessica jumped through the window. Glasses had cut her arm, but she looked at it, and it healed before she stood up, arguably even faster than a vampire. By the time she stood up, Matt, June and Bonnie had run to the basement. Elena quickly got back up, but this time Peter landed and prevented Elena from going to help June. But where she couldn't, Caroline saw this, pushed Thom away and ran to Jessica with her vampire speed. She hit her and they rolled. Jessica pushed her with her feet, then pushed once more with an energy blast. Then quickly stood up and went after June and others. Caroline quickly stood up and ran to Jessica. They crashed at the door and then rolled until downstairs. Jessica quickly got up, but Caroline seemed hurt due to fall. But as she took a few steps, June raised her hand and blocked her powers. A sudden punch to the head made Jessica step back, then Bonnie threw a chair on her and she reeled. Finding this opening, Caroline grabbed her and ran back upstairs with her vampire speed. They jumped out of the office though another window and crashed a car. Due to the crash, the car's windows broke. Jessica saw Caroline throwing a punch. She docked and dodged it, then grabbed her nape and threw her in front of the open window. Then she used an energy blast to push her in. Due to her head remaining at the top, the blast broke Caroline's neck and she fell near the car lifelessly.
Amy and Stephan had reached to such height that the fight in the town center looked like ants swarming. Stephan tried to climb up one of Amy's legs, while trying to dodge her kicks. He finally managed to grab her belt, and pushed himself up to come face to face with her. He punched her right away. But Amy wasn't affected much. Stephan quickly grabbed her shirt before he fell again. But before he could punch her stomach, Amy hit him with her knee. As she was spinning around, the hit hurled him to her back while tearing her shirt. Stephan thought fast and held her wings. Realizing what he plans, Amy made her wings disappear for a second. But as Stephan had nothing left to hold in his reach, he started falling down. He called his wings with a desperate voice. But nothing happened.
Back in the basement, June looked at the ceiling as if she sensed something.
June: "They're in trouble!"
Matt looked at where he imagined the fight would be taking place.
Outside, Natalie started fighting with Jessica. She almost managed to take her down, but Jessica pushed her away with an energy blast that made her fly away until she hit her head to a street lamp and blacked out.
Stephan was still falling down.
Stephan: (desperately, but now also with fear) "Wings!" (there was no difference) "Wings! Wings, please! Wings!"
Down on the ground the great fight was still continuing between pure bloods and what's left of their side. One by one half bloods were falling down, and vampires weren't able make much difference.
Stephan saw he came too close to the ground, and he started yelling with extreme fear and desperation.
Stephan: "Wings! Wings of remembrance! Wings of wind! Wings of redemption! Wings of purification! Wings of protection! Wings of destruction!" (with a desperate realization, he yelled once more) "Just any wings!"
At that moment, he felt a pressure inside his shirt. One second later, two giant snow-white wings teared his shirt and appeared with all it's charm. He yelled with intense happiness, and started flying in the nick of time before he hit the ground.
At that moment, Jessica blocked Ashley's punches and hit her with her head, and all of the half bloods were taken down. David was fighting against Elena and Stefan. A little ahead of them, Thom and Peter came near Jessica. They looked at each other.
Peter: "This took too long."
Thom: "Wings of destruction!"
They appeared, but before he could wave them, Damon came out of nowhere and snapped Thom's neck with a quick move. Peter and Jessica looked at Damon in shock, as if they couldn't even sense his presence. Damon then rapidly attacked them. As Thom's lifeless body fell to the ground, Damon punched Jessica and she fell down, then hit Peter and he flew away. David pushed Stefan with a back kick. Elena came from a short distance and attacked David with her vampire speed. David flied up just in time. But Elena kept running, jumped to the wall of the opposite building, took height, and then jumped on David with an incredible speed. They hit each other and rolled in the sky for a moment. But David managed to hurt Elena and she fell from a small height to the top of a car. Suddenly Matt got out of the building with a handgun in his hand and started shooting David. David tried to dodge them, but wasn't fast enough. One of the bullets hit his wing and he started falling on Elena. Amy arrived just in time and caught him. David looked at her.
David and Elena looked themselves oddly staring at each other. Suddenly David turned his head to someplace else as if he sensed something else. When he looked, he was a full black wolf running towards him with vampire speed. He yelled with fear.
David: (to Amy) "Up! Up! Up!"
But the wolf was too fast. Before she could move an inch, it arrived, climbed on the same car with Elena, and bit David's leg. David yelled with pain, and his speed freed him from Amy's grasp. As the wolf started dragging David, Elena got up to stay on her knees and hands, and looked at the wolf. She recognized him.
Caroline opened her eyes while breathing fastly. She held her neck while starting to get up. Wolf Tyler thew David away with a move with his head. Amy tried to help, but suddenly Matt reloaded his gun and started shooting Amy this time. She kept her height while flying towards Matt, which was also making her dodge the bullets. The moment he ran out of bullets, she stooped and just above him, she made an energy blast that made Matt literally fly to the building. He hit his back to the wall and passed out right away. Meanwhile David stood up and faced Stefan, Elena, who had come near Stefan by then, and the wolf. With anger and pain, she spoke.
David: "Wings of destruction."
In the second his wings appeared, Stephan arrived flying and kicked David's back with his two feet. He lost his balance and fell. Then Stefan quickly landed upon him and grabbed his wings. Realizing this is the chance, Elena and Stefan grabbed one wing each. Seeing this, Caroline went to help Elena and Damon went to help Stefan. All five of them used their full strength, and as David screamed with intense pain, they managed to rip his wings off his body. Amy saw it and flew near him. They all stepped back immediately. David's wings vanished into tin air. Amy turned him to face him. His pain was indescribable. Amy desperately and with sadness looked around. Peter and Jessica were taken down, and were only now standing up. Thom was dead, and now David was done. There wasn't much room left for thought. They had lost. She yelled to others.
Amy: "Fallback! We're leaving."
She quickly took David and flew. Peter and Jessica followed shortly afterwards. As they all went away, the half bloods were starting to wake up. Brigitte came near them.
Brigitte: (unable to believe) "Did we win?"
Damon looked at her. He seemed surprised as well.
The wolf growled, and Brigitte turned to others.
Brigitte: "WE WON!!!"
They all started cheer happily. Damon and Natalie ran towards each other and kissed with happiness. But as soon as they hugged and Natalie looked a little away to realize Thom, her happiness disappeared immediately. She left Damon.
Natalie: (freaked out) "What's that!?"
Upon this the cheering stopped and all eyes turned to the body at the other side of the street.
Damon: (with a calm tone) "That one. I killed that one."
Natalie: (unable to believe what she just heard) "You what?"
Damon: (saw that she was freaking out) "He was about to use his wings of destruction and I had no clue what he was aiming to!"
Natalie: "Is that supposed to make it okay? You could have just hit his face, or attacked his wings! Why kill!"
Damon: "Why it's a big deal all of a sudden, it was a completely painless death!"
Natalie: (screamed as hard as she can) "IT DOESN'T MATTER!!"
Then she turned back and screamed with disbelief and desperation.
Damon: (unable to understand) "What is her problem?"
Gary: "It doesn't matter if you kill an angel with or without pain. If you kill an angel, that's it. They come back as phantoms!"
Damon: (angrily) "You should have told it that way! You said it happens only if they die in pain or agony!"
Gary: "Well I'm sorry, I didn't know you guys could kill people without pain!"
Natalie looked at Thom's body once more. She was too upset and freaked out.
Elena: (she was freaked out as well, came near Gary, who was trying to console Natalie) "What're we gonna do now?"
Gary: (he was freaked out too. He spoke numbly while looking at Thom's body) "I have no idea!"
Elena and Gary walked Natalie to her home. After she went inside, they looked at each other while walking away.
Elena: "What's gonna happen now?"
Gary: "I don't know. But the phantom will emerge the next day, and when it does that, we cannot be here."
Elena: "If you guys leave we're doomed. We don't even know how to fight them."
Gary: "Neither do we. That's the problem. This is why an angel shouldn't be killed."
They saw Stephan, coming towards them from where they were headed. They finally met.
Stephan: "Gary I've been thinking about it, and.. I think I'm gonna stay here."
Gary: (surprised) "In Mystic Falls?"
Gary: "Are you sure?"
Stephan: "Absolutely not. But this is the second time I used my wings, before any of you guys could use it once. So whatever ticks it, I think I have it more. And maybe if I stay, I believe I might be able to destroy the phantom."
Gary: "Or it kills you and the rest has to deal with two phantoms. You were lucky to unlock your wings. This is not heroic, this is crazy."
Elena: "Gary, what other choice do we have?"
Stephan: "She's right, Gary. One of us must stay here, and statistically speaking I'm the best choice."
Gary and Stephan looked at each other. As much as he hated it, Stephan looked like he wasn't going to change his mind.
Gary: "You were always the second smartest person in my team." (they all smiled upon this) "I can only hope you know what you're doing."
Gary: (turned to Elena) "Listen to me. Phantoms are smart creatures. They'll flee when they sense a danger. But they are bound to the area where their body was killed, so.."
Elena: (interrupted him) "Wait a second. So the phantom will not be born in the forest, where Damon buried him."
Gary: "No. It will emerge at the exact point where Thom was killed."
Stephan: "But that's the town center."
Elena: (in shock) "Oh my god!"
Gary: "I know, which is incredibly messed up." (to Elena) "Phantoms will need to feed on spirits. But they need living souls. Which means they cannot harm you."
Stephan: "He means your spirit. But there are other ways phantoms can attack."
Gary: "Exactly. But in each scenario, you and the rest of the vampires are the biggest chance of this town to survive this."
Elena: "What can we even do? Bite them."
Gary: "I've heard something. I don't know if it's true, but.."
Elena: "What is it?"
Gary: "According to what I heard, the only other thing that can destroy a phantom is to bind them with the elements of nature. Bury them underground, drown them in the water, or burn them in fire."
Stephan: "Bonnie can create fire!"
Gary: "Phantoms are angel spirits, chances are her powers won't work on them too."
Elena: (with a sudden realization) "Damon has a flamethrower!"
Stefan: (surprised, as he clearly wasn't expecting this) "Seriously?"
Gary: "That'll do! Attack the phantom with it. If this elements thing is true, you could destroy it as soon as it's born and finish it before it becomes a mess."
They looked at each other. This seemed to have calmed them a bit.
Meredith: "I believe there is a higher power upon us, who truly doesn't want me to stay in this town."
Damon: (tried to smile, but it was awful due to his sadness) "So it seems."
Meredith: "I was supposed to leave months ago anyway. I just postponed my destiny."
Damon: "You don't know how much I regret killing that angel scum."
Meredith: "Actually I know a thing or two about regret. I don't have the fanciest resume after all."
Damon: (tried to smile) "You did what you thought was right."
Meredith: (shrugged) "So did you."
Damon: "It doesn't make me feel any better." (upon this Meredith went near him and hugged him. He hugged her back) "I'm gonna miss you."
Meredith: "I'll miss you too."
The bathroom door opened and Christian walked out. Damon and Meredith left each other and looked at him.
Christian: (to Damon) "Hey."
Christian: (to Meredith) "You ready?"
Meredith: (nodded) "Yeah."
Christian grabbed his bag and walked to the door. Meredith took her bag and followed him. Damon went near her quickly.
Damon: (held her bag) "Here, let me."
Meredith smiled and let him carry it. Then all three left the apartment.
Stefan: (referring to June) "She was a bit shaken up. But she's sleeping it over now."
Elena: (exhaled with relief and leaned her back to the door) "Good."
Stefan: (noticed she wasn't really relaxed) "Hey, what's wrong?"
Elena: "I just don't know how I'm supposed to feel."
Stefan: "We survived. It's a good thing."
Elena: "Our lives are all about surviving. That's not life. It's a mess. We can never live in peace. You know, I try so hard to do everything right. And I just keep messing up."
Stefan: "Elena, what happened tonight, it's not your fault."
Elena: "Yes it is, Stefan. Pure bloods are after June because of me. I'm the doppelganger that they want, but I'm not a doppelganger anymore, I'm a useless doppelganger. I'm a vampire!" (Stefan realized her struggle) "Every time I try to protect the people I love, something even worse happens. I just lost my faith, Stefan." (looked at him. Her eyes were full) "I can't do it anymore!" (Stefan hugged her and she started crying on his shoulder) "I can't do it anymore!"
She continued crying and sobbing.
Bonnie: "You know how long that'll take to heal? Weeks. Easily. You're the quarterback, you work at the grill, and you have a girlfriend. Drink this."
Matt: (smiled, then tried to sit up) "Okay."
Bonnie held his head and helped him drink it.
Bonnie: "This is kind of stale. It'll not fix you completely, but at least you'll be able to stay on your feet."
Matt: (after he drank it) "Thanks."
Bonnie: (with a friendly smile) "You're welcome." (they looked at each other) "You were so brave out there."
Matt: "And kinda useless."
Bonnie: "I hear otherwise. I hear if it wasn't for you, there wouldn't have been a victory tonight." (he smiled and looked down. Bonnie stood up) "Sleep well Matt."
Matt: "Do you think I should tell her?"
They looked at each other. Bonnie understood what he meant.
Bonnie: "Tell what?"
Matt: "All this."
Bonnie looked thoughtful for a while. Then sat back on the bed.
Bonnie: "I don't think I should be giving that decision for you."
Matt: "I just don't like keeping all these secrets from her. But I fear that if I tell her, she might freak out."
Bonnie: "That would be only natural. I freaked out when I learned I'm a witch."
Matt: "But you're a powerful witch, Bonnie. You can protect yourself. But she's just a human. If she gets involved with this, it's gonna change her life forever." (Bonnie understood what he is really saying, and remained thoughtful and silent) "I mean, are you gonna tell Antonio?"
Bonnie: "I don't know. But if we get serious I'm gonna have to. I don't think I can live in a True Lies movie."
Matt: (laughed) "Yeah, you're right."
Bonnie stood up and gently pushed Matt back into the bed.
Bonnie: (while putting the blanket on him) "You should sleep now."
Matt: (jokingly) "Thanks mom!"
Bonnie smiled, then turned off Matt's light.
Antonio: "Dad? Is the curfew over?"
Mr. Wilder: (from living room) "Nope. They said they'll announce it. Why do you ask?"
Antonio: (while clearly wondering what Bonnie is doing outside) "No reason."
Then got away from window.
Damon: "Is there any chance this means you're moving in?"
Natalie smiled genuinely, then stood up and went near him.
Natalie: "You don't know how badly I wish that." (looked into Damon's eyes and held his cheek) "This would have never worked, Damon. Us. I'm an angel and.. and you're a vampire. I can't be immortal even if I wanted to be. And you can't change what you are. It hurts because I really like you. You deserve to be loved. And I wish I was the one to love you, care for you, and spend a life with you, because you're an amazing person. But we aren't meant to be." (then she took her suitcase and walked to the door. Before going out, she looked at him once more) "You'll always be in my heart, Damon."
Damon was too heartbroken and upset to say a word. Natalie realized this. With regret, she looked at him for a few more seconds, then went out and closed the door.
