Hell Hath No Fury
Farewell is the fourth episode in Season 4 and 70th overall.
Upon finding out Elena's whereabouts from Damon, Stefan goes to see Elena, but he is amazed by her strength. While having flashes to her childhood with Jeremy, Elena finds herself reliving a terrible event. Tyler (Klaus) realizes his stay in Mystic Falls might endanger everyone's and ultimately his own safety, and decides to leave town. Damon and Jeremy enlist Bonnie's help to find Elena again, and they enlist Caroline's help. Finally Elena is forced to accept her new identity, and Caroline delivers some disturbing news to Stefan and Damon.
|Elena was crying. The emotions were confusing and freaking her. She could clearly understand why vampires don't want to deal with all these heightened emotions. She took a few deep breaths to calm herself down, but it didn't help. In fact it made her even worse, and she eventually punched the wall with all her strength. Then she looked at her wounded hand healing herself. At that moment she had a flashback to her childhood.
Elena was 8, Jeremy was 6. It was a Saturday morning and kids were struggling between waking up and not waking up. They were apparently in the same room back then, and they had a bunk bed. Elena was on top. Grayson suddenly entered the room.
Grayson: "Get up."
Elena: (with a sleepy voice) "Why, there's no school today."
Grayson: "Gonna spend the whole day in bed?"
Jeremy: "I want to!"
Grayson: "Then we're not going to lake house for the weekend?"
Jeremy quickly threw the blanket off of himself and sat up to look at his dad.
Jeremy: "Lake house?"
Jeremy: "Okay, I get up!"
Grayson: (bent knees before Jeremy and looked him in the eye happily) "Shall we make a deal?"
Jeremy: "What deal?"
Grayson: "Get your sister downstairs for breakfast, and I'll take you to fishing when we get there."
Elena: "If you spill water on me you'll have a big trouble Jeremy!"
Upon this father and son looked at each other naughtily. Elena, understanding she gave them a pretty good idea, scoffed and buried her face to her pillow.
Present day Elena looked away sadly. As a tear ran through her cheek, she was clearly regretting for what she did to Jeremy.
Something was happening at Matt's house. A faded voice was calling out Matt's name. The voice called Matt again, but this time it was more clear: it was Alaric's voice. Matt woke up in fear, then grabbed his phone to call Damon.
His door is knocked in no time. Matt ran to the door and opened it.
Damon: "Is he here?"
Matt: "He was. I don't know where he is now."
Damon tried to walk in but he realized he couldn't. He wasn't invited in.
Matt: "I swear I heard his voice. I don't know how, I have no emotional connection to Alaric. I mean, that's what Jeremy used to say, that's how he saw Anna and Vicki, and that's how I was able to see Vicki."
Damon: "That's not what I mean."
Matt looked at Damon and saw that he was stuck at the threshold.
Matt: "Ah, get in."
Damon walked in and closed the door.
Damon: "It doesn't matter. If you heard his voice he must have found a connection."
Matt: "And I figured since you guys were close, you could help me contact him."
Damon: "Why you? Not Jeremy?"
Matt: "He can't see ghosts anymore."
Damon: "Right. When Elena killed him he lost that ability."
Matt: "I tried to call Jeremy but his phone was off. I'm new to whole this, so.."
Damon: "It's okay. I was there when he used me to contact Rose. I know the process."
Matt: "So tell me."
Damon: (raised his hand holding a bottle of bourbon, and smiled) "I got it covered."
Matt: "Am I gonna drink that?"
Damon: (looked at him weirdly) "Are you even old enough?" (meaning no way he's not letting Matt drink it)
Matt: (as both walked into the living room) "No, I'm not."
A few moments later, Damon and Matt were sitting before each other quietly. Suddenly Matt looked around with confusion.
Matt: "I think I can hear him."
Damon: "What's he saying?"
Matt: "I can't make it out, it's too distant."
Damon: "I bet he's saying how idiot and useless you are!"
Matt: "Not helping!"
Damon: "You are trying to contact a different plane, Mutt! You're gonna use your mind, not your ears! Open your senses, and want him talk to you. That's the only way you see and hear him." (upon this Matt closed his eyes, took a deep breath, and then exhaled slowly. Then he opened his eyes. Damon realized the sudden change in his looks) "You see him!"
Damon: "What's he saying?"
Matt: "Uh, he's saying.. that he's glad I'm hearing him."
Alaric: "Listen Matt, the connection I'm using is too weak, so I don't have much time. I know where Elena is."
Matt: "You do?"
Alaric: "She's in the Lockwood cellar, she's been staying there this whole time."
Matt: "He's saying that Elena is in the Lockwood cellar."
Alaric: "She turned on her emotions and now she's in pretty bad shape. You need to find and help her. I'm.. not s.. .w. she.. ..n .."
Damon: "What? What's happening?"
Matt: "I'm losing the connection."
Alaric: "Find her!"
Then he disappeared.
Matt: (stood up) "Alaric? Alaric!"
Damon: (understood that Alaric disappeared and stood up) "What did he say? Tell me!"
Matt: (looked at Damon) "We need to find Elena."
Tyler looked at her. He immediately showed his fangs and veins. His eyes started glowing with a dangerous yellow, and he ran to her with vampire speed. Bonnie was freaked, but she made up her mind quickly and pushed him away with her magic. He got up an attacked once again, but this time she used pain infliction. Tyler eventually yelled.
Tyler: "STOP!" (Bonnie stopped. After panting a little while, Tyler stood up and looked at Bonnie with a threatening manner) "This body may not be strong enough to resist you, but you won't be able to stop me when I get back into my own body."
Bonnie: "Maybe I should never let that happen."
Tyler: "Would that mean sacrificing your friend? Now you're talking like Esther." (after a tense stare, Tyler turned his back to her and took a few steps away) "I saw what happened to my brothers."
Bonnie: "They had it coming."
Tyler: (looked at Bonnie angrily) "Do I have it coming too?"
Bonnie: "You already had it. The only reason you're still breathing is if you die, so do my friends. That's why I saved you."
Tyler: "Where is Rebekah?" (Bonnie didn't reply, which made him insist) "Where is Rebekah!"
Bonnie: "Elena killed her." (Tyler looked at her enraged) "That's why others wanted revenge and they had to be stopped."
Tyler looked at Bonnie with a dangerous happiness.
Tyler: "I will rip that bitch's head off."
Bonnie: "You cannot do anything to my friends. That would break our deal and trust me, you don't want that."
Tyler looked away hopelessly. He spoke after a moment of silence.
Tyler: "Then I'll leave. I can't stay here without killing someone."
Bonnie: "What about your original body?"
Tyler: "It doesn't matter. Given the enemies I've made in that body over the thousand years, I'll be safer in this one."
Bonnie: "So you're gonna start over?"
Tyler: "You won't hear from me, that's for sure."
Bonnie was surprised, but considering the other options, this one seemed best. He was right after all. Klaus would never stop without killing someone.
Damon: "Get up."
Jeremy: (raised his head to look at the clock) "Are you insane? Look at the clock!"
Damon: "I know where Elena is."
Jeremy: (instantly got up) "Where?"
While he was putting on his clothes, Damon called Stefan.
Stefan: "You talked to him?"
Damon: "I did. Meet us at Lockwood cellar. Alaric says that's where Elena is."
Damon: "I and Jeremy are on our way."
Stefan: "Me too."
Jeremy put on a shirt, and they went out.
Miranda: "Jenna can never know about this."
Grayson: "I know. And I told you, John can handle it. It's just one."
Miranda: "You think it's just one. And I don't trust John."
Grayson: "You never learn to get over, do you?"
Miranda: "After he gave his ring to that slut? No! And to know he'll be fine, you had to give him your own ring. I'm not getting over that!"
Grayson: "He's my brother. He's young, he made a mistake. But we can't hold it against him his entire life."
Miranda: "We were young too, but we never made that kind of a mistake. Mistakes!"
Miranda: "If anything happens to you because of him.."
Grayson: "Nothing will happen. That's why we're going to lake house."
Miranda: "No, we're going to lake house because someone was invited in. I can't help wondering who is responsible for that."
Grayson: "John did this before. He's good at this. I know for a fact that by the time we're back, this house will be safe as sound."
Miranda: (looked worried) "I hope you're right."
Not understanding a single thing, Elena closed the window and waited for them to come. When they eventually came and got in the car, Grayson looked at them in the mirror.
Grayson: (happily) "You ready?"
Kids cheered, and both parents smiled happily. Grayson started the car and they eventually arrived to the lake house. Children started running around.
Miranda: "Kids, be careful." (but none of them listened. Grayson laughed at this. Then Jeremy ran into the house and Elena followed him. Miranda looked at the open door) "I don't know whether I should be glad or worried that they're inside."
Suddenly sounds came from inside indicating kids are knocking over things. Grayson and Miranda looked at each other meaningfully, then grabbed the bags quickly walked to the house. [end of flashback]
Elena heard someone at the entrance and she hid. It was Stefan. He called out her name a couple of times. When there was no answer, he slowly walked inside. After walking inside a little further, he saw the hole in the wall. Not sure whether he should get in or not, he stood in front of it for a moment. Suddenly he heard a girl yelling and attacking him, and he quickly turned to defend himself. But as soon as he held her arms, he was surprised to see that it was Elena.
He immediately left her. Elena was also surprised that it was Stefan.
After a brief stare, they hugged each other with great longing. She was definitely glad to see him, and she started crying on his shoulder. Stefan started caressing her, trying to console her.
Stefan: "Shh, it's okay, you're safe."
Elena: "What have I done!"
Stefan: "It's okay, you'll be okay."
Elena: "No, Stefan, I'll never be okay." (she left Stefan and started breathing heavily) "I'm a vampire. God, I'm a vampire! How can I ever be okay!?"
Stefan: "Hey! Elena! Stay with me. Look at me! Elena! Breath!" (Elena started to calm down) "We'll work it out. Okay? I'll teach you."
Elena: "It doesn't matter. What I've done to Jeremy.. I'll.. I'll never forgive myself!"
Stefan: "Jeremy's fine. The ring brought him back."
Elena: "I know, I saw him."
Stefan: "Then what's the problem?"
Elena: (showed her fangs angrily) "The problem is this!"
Stefan: "Look, you can't stay away from him. He wants to see you."
Elena: "I can't. I'm not ready."
Stefan: "You'll never be ready for this. That's why he's coming anyway."
Elena: (freaked out) "What?"
Elena: "Who else knows that I'm here?" (held him tight) "Stefan!"
Stefan: (after a brief silence) "Everyone."
Elena: (left him) "No."
Elena: "I can't see anyone!"
Stefan: "It's okay."
Elena: "I'm not ready!"
Stefan: (held her gently) "Elena.."
Elena: "NO!" (suddenly she landed a powerful punch to Stefan's chest. He flew and hit to the wall and then fell down. Elena looked at him) "I'm sorry Stefan! I'm not ready to see anyone."
Stefan tried to stand up and stop her, but he couldn't even breath. Elena was hesitating to leave him like this. But she eventually turned her back and ran with her vampire speed.
Liz: "What do you want, Tyler?"
Tyler: "I just wanna talk to her."
Liz: "After everything you've done?"
Tyler: "I made a mistake. And I want to apologize. Please let me." (Liz was skeptical. But eventually she stepped aside and let Tyler walk in) "Thanks."
He walked directly to Caroline's room and opened the door. She was in her night clothes, and certainly wasn't glad to see him.
Caroline: "The ownership of this house needs serious changing."
Tyler: "I know that I'm not welcome."
Caroline: "Doesn't really take a genius to figure that out."
Tyler: "Okay, I had that coming. But I just came to.."
Caroline: (interrupted him) "I know why you're here. But I'm not interested."
Tyler: (looked heartbroken) "Okay. I just wanted to say goodbye because.."
Caroline: (surprised) "What?"
Tyler: "I'm leaving."
Caroline: "When?" (Tyler looked at his backpack. Caroline understood) "Right now?"
Tyler: "If you wanna leave with me, I'd be honored."
Caroline seemed to have calmed down.
Caroline: "What changed your mind?"
Tyler: "I just wasn't ready."
Caroline: "And now you are? What happened?"
Tyler: "I realized that this town is messed up. And I don't wanna stay here anymore." (Caroline looked around uncomfortably) "I know that it's not gonna be easy. People will judge us because we're young. And I know that we can never be able to settle in one place, because we're gonna have to move on before people realize we're not growing up. But, I just think it's gonna be a lot more bearable if you were with me."
Caroline: "How can I even trust you?" (Tyler didn't know what to say) "This is the second time in two days that you changed your mind about something that will effect our entire future."
Tyler: "It won't happen again. Because when you walked out of the cave, it hit me. I was an idiot, and I made the biggest mistake of my life. One that I know I'll never make again."
Caroline: "Trust like that can't be built by words. It's gonna take time. Besides I want to stay anyway."
Tyler: "But you can't. The council.."
Caroline: (interrupted him) "Stefan talked to the council and made a deal with them. As long as we don't hurt humans, we're allowed to stay."
Tyler was surprised to hear this.
Damon: "Where's Elena?"
Stefan: "She took off."
Damon: "She said she wasn't ready to see anyone."
Damon: "And you couldn't stop her?"
Stefan: "I tried to."
Jeremy: "And you couldn't?"
Damon: "Are you back on animal blood?"
Stefan: "No, Damon. I'm on human blood."
Damon: "Then how can she take you down like that?"
Stefan: "I have no idea!"
Jeremy: "Could she be Katherine?"
Stefan: "No, she wasn't Katherine. I know her strength. Elena's was much more intense."
Damon: (surprised) "What?"
Stefan: "This is Elena's 4th day as a vampire. But she was stronger than any vampire I've ever seen!"
Jeremy: "Is that even possible?"
Damon: "Not even remotely."
Jeremy: "Then what's going on?"
Stefan: "I have no idea. But we need to find her!"
Damon: "Let's call Bonnie."
Jeremy: "Did you find her?"
Bonnie: "I can't seem to get a specific location, but I sense she is somewhere near water."
Damon: "Water?" (they all looked at each other) "What's she up to again?"
Jeremy: "I'm not intending to find out by waiting."
Stefan: "He's right. Let's split up. There's only so much places she can be."
They all nodded.
Tyler: "You sure?"
Caroline: "I've made up my mind. I was confused at first, but I know what I want, and I want to stay more than I wanna be with you."
Tyler: (looked down) "I respect that." (looked at her) "I'm gonna start a new life. And I would very much love if you were with me."
Caroline: (tried to smile, but she was a little sad) "This doesn't have to be a goodbye, you know. You can always come back."
Tyler: (smiled) "Or maybe you could come to me."
Caroline: "How will I even find you?"
Tyler looked at her for a while, then looked at his neck. Then he took off his necklace and gave it to Caroline.
Tyler: "You'll find a way." (indicating he was suggesting a locator spell)
Caroline took it while smiling with tears. Tyler wiped her tear with his finger. Then they hugged each other. When they left each other, Tyler looked at her with love. They smiled to each other. Then he turned back and disappeared with his vampire speed.
Only seconds later, her phone rang. Excited that it might be Tyler, she quickly took it. But it was Stefan. She felt a bit down, but answered.
Caroline: "Stefan, what's up."
Stefan: "We need your help."
Caroline looked with confusion.
Elena: "Mom, where's Jeremy?"
Miranda: "Your dad took him to fishing." (looked at Elena with a smile) "They should be back soon."
Upon this Elena walked outside to the wooden dock. Miranda looked at her for a while, then turned back to her cooking. Elena was seeing the boat in the lake. They were distant, but not far. Jeremy threw the pole a couple of times but couldn't catch anything. They were both laughing. Then the boat started getting closer. When they arrived, Grayson tied the boat. He saw Elena and smiled to her.
Grayson: "Good afternoon!"
He had to yell so that Elena could hear. Upon this Elena came near them. She watched her father tying the boat. When he's done, they held each other's hands and walked together. Jeremy, still on the boat, yelled them to wait. Grayson yelled him back, telling him to be quick. Elena stopped and looked at him. Upon this Grayson waited too. They watched Jeremy stepping on the edge of the boat to jump to the dock. But before he could jump, the side of the boat broke. Jeremy hit to the dock and then fell into the water. Grayson yelled his name in fear and ran to him. Hearing the noise, Miranda went out of the house and ran to the dock. Grayson jumped into the water. Elena was at the edge, desperately yelling Jeremy's name. Finally Grayson took him out of the water, but he was unconscious. Miranda arrived and took Jeremy from Grayson. She laid him to the dock. He was not breathing. Miranda freaked out and started performing CPR. Elena got to the other side of Jeremy until Grayson got out of the water and came. Everyone was desperate. Miranda was crying. Luckily, Jeremy suddenly threw up the water in his lungs and came back to life. Miranda broke down and started crying. Grayson hugged her to console her. Jeremy and Elena looked at each other. Elena was crying too. [end of flashback]
Caroline: "Elena wait!"
Elena: "Get away from me Caroline!"
Caroline: "Look, I get it. I've been there too. I killed someone when I first turned, remember?"
Elena: "This is not the same." (with self disgust) "I killed my own brother!"
Caroline: "Elena, listen to me! Jeremy's fine, he's alive." (Elena couldn't hold her tears anymore and started crying) "I can help you. But only if you let me. Elena, we can do this. We have all the time in the world! Just let me help you!"
Jeremy: "How could I even do this to him. He was the anchor to my humanity. The one thing that could make me stop. What have I turned into, what have I done.. I'll never forgive myself!"
Caroline: "And that's a good thing, Elena. It means the next time you'll be able to stop yourself. You'll never do something like this again, because the guilt will stop you. You'll know you'll never want to go through this again!"
Elena: (in tears) "I remember it like yesterday. When I almost lost him. He was drowning here. Mom and dad saved him just in time. I remember how much it hurt me to lose him as a kid. And I swore to myself that I would always protect him. I would rather die before letting anyone hurt Jeremy. But I was the one who killed him with my own hands, and teeth, because I'm the one thing that she never wanted to become! No one can understand that!"
Caroline: "Okay, but we can help her. Let us be there for you, Elena. Me, Stefan, Damon, they will always be there for you, to help you. I promise, we'll get you through this!"
Elena: "What if I can't? What if I'm not strong enough?"
Caroline: (reassuringly) "You are!"
Upon this Elena broke down. She was crying her eyes out. Caroline went near her and hugged her. Eventually Elena hugged her back and Elena cried on her shoulder, while having flashes of Jeremy's as he was growing up.
Elena: "Jeremy, I.."
Jeremy: (took his finger on Elena's mouth gently, meaning to tell her not to talk) "Shh, it's over. I'm just happy to have you back."
Elena smiled tearfully, and they hugged each other. Then they went inside the house. Bonnie followed them. Others were intending too, but Caroline stopped them.
Caroline: "I think it's better if we just leave her alone. She just survived something terrible. Let's not suffocate her."
Matt and Meredith looked at each other. They seemed to have understood.
Matt: "Just let us know if anything happens, okay."
Caroline smiled and blinked, meaning she will. Upon this he and Meredith left. But Stefan and Damon were still there. Caroline looked at them.
Damon: "Stop giving that look. We're not going anywhere."
Caroline: "I understand you want to be there for her. But maybe that's the problem."
Damon: "I said I'm not leaving. Because the last time she wanted to be alone, she was with Matt and she ended up finding someone else."
Caroline: "Well maybe that's for the best. Because ever since you two walked into her life, everyone's lives are upside down. Maybe all we needs is a little space from you two."
Stefan breaths uncomfortably, but he seemed to agree. He turned to Damon.
Stefan: "She's right, Damon. We need to step back."
Damon was reluctant. Caroline noticed this.
Caroline: "You got what you wanted. Elena will live forever. But tonight, she needs to be alone."
Damon was still reluctant, but soon he too agreed to leave. Stefan and Caroline shared a look and nodded each other. After they eventually left, Caroline too got in the Gilbert house.
