|Tyler wakes up to a noise. Then he recognizes Katherine's voice, yelling with anger and fighting with someone fiercely. Freaks, and runs with his pajamas. But when he arrives to the basement, he sees June and Jeremy watching Katherine with a little concern, while she hits Klaus' lifeless body with everything she got. She appears like she's blowing off steam big time. She keeps punching, kicking, and throwing his body around, and swearing like a trooper. Tyler watches her too, as noone either dares to interfere, and/or don't want to. When she is done, she looks at the trio, and walks out of the room with kind of relief.
Tyler walks after her, while the others are following him.
Tyler: (asks like he's having fun) "Got it all out of you?"
Katherine: (looks at him) "Not all, but enough. For now."
Tyler: (smiles) "You know, you gave me a pretty good idea. Maybe we could hang him to ceiling from his neck, and we could all use him as a punchbag or something."
Katherine: (cannot help laughing. Everyone else seems to have liked the idea too. Then she looks at the basement door and gets serious) "So, Bonnie is with them, right?"
Katherine: "That's bad. A witch could help us a lot in our figth with those.. Whatever they are."
Katherine: "Right, kitsunes."
Tyler: "It's actually just kitsune. Japanese has it's own way of expressing plural but.." (suddenly realises Katherine is looking at him weirdly) "Never mind."
Jeremy: (suddenly remembers something) "You have a witch!"
Jeremy: "Remember the masquerade ball? There was a witch with you, she later turned out to be Bonnie's cousin."
Katherine: "Right, wicked Lucy."
Jeremy: "So you could call her, right?"
Katherine: "No, I can't call her. When she gave me the moonstone, I had to let her go. She's no more my witch."
June: "But if she is Bonnie's cousin, she has to come. Bonnie needs protection and she is family."
Katherine: "You're all forgetting that she is not here, and there is a reason for that. She and Bonnie met each other in a crazy witch power struggle, and they are not exactly on good terms. Besides, Lucy hates me so she would never get anywhere near me, so she's not gonna be any help to us. Just forget her."
Tyler: "Then name us another witch!"
Katherine looks at him.
June: "Elena and I are cousins too. But when we first met, I thought she was going to kill me, and I ran. But then we talked and got over it. She can get over it too. She has to!"
Tyler: "Look, you don't need to talk to her, okay? Just call her and give us the phone, let us do the talking."
Katherine: (looks at the trio for a moment.) "Fine." (Then takes her phone out from her back pocket and starts looking at the contacts. Then she hits the green button, and gives the phone to Tyler.) "Good luck."
Tyler takes the phone to her ear, and hears it ringing.
Misao: "Residents and citizens of the Dark Dimension. There has been a security breach in our perimeters last week. Four people entered our lands without our permission, and we have reasons to believe those people are now taking refuge among us. We need to capture them. Question and debrief them, and kill them if necessary. What we need is your cooperation. You may have your own reasons to keep them safe and secure, away from us. But we cannot have that. So I give you only 24 hours. Tomorrow this hour if those fugitives are not brought to us, I will unleash the phantoms on your city. Decide if you can have that!"
Everyone around the city, including Meredith, who is searching for her friends, freak with the announce. Bonnie and Klaus heard it too, while walking in the alley. She remembers what Misao said about destroyed phantoms. They would somehow go to the Dark Dimension. Only then she realizes that they never met a phantom. So they must be trapped somewhere, awaiting to be unleashed, with intense hunger. They would probably destroy the entire city, maybe even the whole Dark Dimension in no time. Klaus cannot help smiling, and says that would save them from a big trouble. Bonnie smiles too. But then she says the real question is, how many phantoms was she talking about. She says all 5 pure blood angels died, along with 6 of 9 half bloods, plus Gary's mother who was killed by pure bloods for betraying them. So there was at least 12 phantoms. But she cannot even imagine how many angels were killed and their phantoms were destroyed through the history of time. There might be hundreds of phantoms, and the only angel here who can kill them again is lost, God knows where she is. Bonnie looks at Klaus anxiously, and asks what are they going to do. Klaus says she hates that fox bitch. Bonnie agrees. Klaus says the whole city will be now looking for them. But they have an advantage, which is they don't know who they are. So if they act normal, they might have a chance. So they are just going to blend in the people. But if anyone comes to them, they need to be prepared to kill, because he has no intention of surrendering or getting caught. When Bonnie hears about killing, she suddenly feels sick with the memory the first person she ever killed. It was Natalie, Damon's girlfriend. How come she was fooled by Misao to kill her. And how could she even do it. Take a life. It's not like her. But after she was brought back to life, she promised herself she would leave it behind and never mention it or her to anyone, as everyone thought it was Misao who killed her.
She suddenly remembers that she and Misao were connected because of the spell they cast together. Klaus is startled, but then curiously asks why she hasn't used it yet to find her. Bonnie says maybe she forgot. Klaus then weirdly asks if she might be unknowingly under her control and they might be walking to Misao by themselves without even knowing. Bonnie says there is no way she wouldn't notice if she was being influenced by some other force. Then assures Klaus. Klaus says she had better be right. Then they start walking.
Meanwhile, the news about Misao's announce had arrived to the rebel base too. And there is a huge chaos inside. A lot of people are insisting on handing the refuges to the kitsune. Ulma, Hope, and a few other rebels are defending her, but the situation looks hopeless. However, Ulma reminds them of her speech. From now on, there would be no giving in. They would fight back. And Meredith is a great asset, who will be more help to them than harm. The crowd calms down upon this. She and Hope look at each other with fear, like they evaded a huge threat, their first internal conflict.
The phone keeps ringing. Then finally a girl comes near the phone. She looks at the number, which seems to be not among the contacts, so the name doesn't show. She looks at the phone for a few seconds, then accepts the call.
Tyler: "Uuh, is this Lucy?"
Girl: "No, who are you?"
Meanwhile Katherine and Caroline, who just arrived, are listening to the conversation with their vampire hearing.
Tyler: "I'm a friend of Bonnie's, who is Lucy's cousin. We needed to talk to her. We need her help with something. Is she there?"
The girl gets silent for a moment.
Girl: "No. She's not. Your number wasn't in her contacts, probably that's why you don't know. Lucy passed away last week."
Tyler: (shocked) "What?"
Upon this Caroline and Katherine react too.
June: "What is it?"
Caroline moves her hand to June, signing her to be quiet. However, June holds her hand and follows the conversation by reading it from Caroline's mind. Caroline is surprised by that move. She smiles and concentrates back to the conversation.
Girl: "We found her in her room. She was od'ed."
Tyler: "Oh my god! I'm.. I'm so sorry."
Girl: "Thanks. I'm Samara. Her sister."
Tyler: "I'm Tyler."
Samara: "You said you needed my sister's help? About what, exactly?"
Tyler: (freaks for one second) "Uuh, it's.. It's actually something between us and Lucy, so.."
Samara: "Where do you live?"
Tyler: (surprised by the question) "Sorry?"
Samara: "To be honest, I don't want to be here now. I just went through too much, and I could use a little break, and if you're okay with me helping you instead of my sister, that would be great because I could use a little distraction, and.. I really need a break. So, would it be okay if I helped you?"
Tyler: "Uhm, We're in Mystic Falls."
Samara: "Mystic Falls. It's.. It's two hour drive. I'll set things up here today, and I'll be there tomorrow. Can I reach you from this number?"
Tyler: "This is actually my friend's phone, she's Katherine. She's gonna be with us too."
Tyler: "When you get here, ask for the Lockwood house. It's the biggest property in town so everyone knows. Anyone can lead you here."
Samara: "Lockwood house. Okay. I'll see you tomorrow."
Then then both end the call. Tyler looks at the others.
Caroline: "That went good."
Katherine: "Yes, but the witch is coming here with no clue how she's going to help."
June: "Will that be a problem?"
Katherine: "If she is a vampire hater, she would probably kill us all and go home."
Tyler: "And I think that means we cannot touch her until we get on good terms with her."
June: "Why not?"
Caroline: "Witches can sense supernaturals when they make contact. And vampires feel like death. At least that's how Bonnie felt. Witches don't like that feeling."
Katherine: "So, good think we still have a human who can do the handshake."
Upon this all eyes turn to Jeremy, who is looking at them curiously.
Klaus stops in another alley. Bonnie looks at him and says blending in the crowd is not a solution either. Klaus nods. Then a weird flying animal passes upon them. It's a guardian. When he sees them, he teleports himself to where he can see the fugitives. Klaus hears the teleporting sound, and recognizes it. Then he suddenly sees the guardian teleported himself above Bonnie, and now falling on her. He rapidly runs to Bonnie and saves her. Upon seeing the guardian, Bonnie pushes him away with her witch powers. The guardian flies away and falls. Klaus immediately runs to him and starts hitting him while on the ground. But he teleports himself behind Klaus. Bonnie uses her powers again and slams the guardian to the wall. Then Klaus attacks him there. But before he can hit, the guardian teleports behind Klaus. However, Klaus apparently predicted that, takes his other hand to where he thinks the guardian will teleport. And when the guardian comes, Klaus finds himself holding the guardian's heart. With a furious move, he takes his hand out of the teleporter's body. With his heart destroyed, the guardian turns into dust and vanishes. Bonnie looks at Klaus and says even those teleporters don't want phantoms free. Klaus says everything is enhanced here. So phantoms might have much more destructive powers than they have on earth. Bonnie freaks and says she cannot even imagine what an enhanced phantom will be like. Klaus says him neither. But tomorrow they will be dealing with them, because he has no intention to get captured. So they need to be prepared. Bonnie agrees, and they start walking.
The next day, Lockwood's door is knocked. Carol opens the door, and sees a girl she doesn't know.
Carol: "Can I help you?"
Girl: "Hi, you must be Mrs. Lockwood. My name's Samara, Lucy's sister." (but Carol's face looks like she doesn't know Lucy) "I'm sorry, I though I was expected."
Carol: "I'll just ask my son and..."
Suddenly Jeremy walks downstairs and comes near them.
Jeremy: "Hey, you must be Samara!" (Carol looks at him)
Samara: "Yes. And you must be Tyler."
Jeremy: "No, I'm Jeremy, Tyler's friend."
They handshake, and Samara doesn't react in any way.
Then Tyler's voice is heard from the top of the stairs as he, Caroline, June and Katherine walk downstairs."
Tyler: "Tyler is me. .. She's okay, mom, I called her here."
Carol: "Okay then." (looks at everyone) "Call me if you need anything."
Then she walks away, and Tyler and others arrive downstairs.
Samara: "She didn't know I was coming?"
Tyler: "Yeah, I forgot to tell her. Here, come on in." (shows the living room) "Nice to meet you."
Samara: (as she walks inside the living room) "Nice to meet you all too."
Upon this they all smile to her, but none of them gets any closer to her. She doesn't seem to suspect anything.
Tyler: "Was it hard to find here?"
Samara: "No, not really. Like you said I asked the first person I saw. People seem nice here. They were really helpful."
Samara: (after sitting on a couch) "So, I understand that you all knew my sister, but I don't know you, so.., for starters we could get to know each other?" (Upon this everyone introduces themselves) "And she was close to all of you?"
Katherine: "Actually she was only close to me. We were kinda besties."
Samara: "Strange she never mentioned any of you."
Katherine: "We had a little fight when we last saw each other."
Samara: (smiles) "Well that explains it."
Tyler: "We actually knew very little about her. To be honest I never really met your sister. But today we need her help."
Caroline: "And now that she's gone, that makes you the only person that can help us."
Samara: (upon this she looks at everyone for a moment silently. Apparently she understood) "You know."
June: "We do."
Samara: (smiling, shakes her head with a little disapproval) "I should have known. My sister..." (then looks at everyone) "Okay, what do you need me to do?"
Caroline: "It's not actually just one thing."
Samara: "I'm sorry?"
Katherine: "What she means is, what we need from you is not just cast one spell and leave."
Samara: "What do you really need?" (upon this everyone look at each other) "Look, if I am going to help you, I need to know what you are dealing with."
June: (after a brief silence) "We need protection."
Samara: "What kind of protection?"
Katherine: "A real strong one."
Caroline: "Look, our friends are in trouble. One of them is your cousin Bonnie. We need to protect them, and that's what we need you for."
Samara: "But if she's my cousin she must be a witch too, why she can't do this?"
Katherine: "She is a witch, but right now she's not really available."
Samara: "Why not?"
Caroline: "Because she's not really here."
Samara: "What do you mean 'not really here'?"
Tyler: "She's just.. Look, it's kinda hard to explain."
Samara: "Well then stop hedging and tell me. I can't help you if I don't know what you're dealing with."
At that moment, the door opens and Christian walks inside.
Christian: "Hi, I'm sorry for being late. I just got.." (he suddenly freaks with the sight of Katherine) "What the hell?"
Katherine: (understands he confused her for Elena) "I'm Katherine."
Christian: "What the hell is going on!"
Katherine: (to the group) "You didn't tell him?"
Samara: "Tell him what?"
June: "Oh god!"
Samara: "Who is this?"
Caroline: "He's Christian."
Caroline: "No, his name is Christian!"
Christian: "Did you save her already, what is this?"
Samara: "Save who?"
June: "Oh my god!"
Caroline: "No we didn't save her, this is not Elena!"
Christian: "What do you mean this is not Elena?"
Samara: "Who is Elena?"
Tyler: "I'll explain."
Caroline: "Look, I understand the confusion but this is Katherine."
Christian: "What Katherine? This is Elena!"
Katherine: "No, I'm not Elena!"
Christian: "Is this some kind of practical joke!? Where's Meredith?"
Samara: "I'm getting really confused here!"
Christian: "Who is she?"
Caroline: "She's Samara."
Christian: "The witch?"
Samara: "Wait, he knows too?"
Tyler: "Yes, he.."
Samara: "Is there anyone in this town who doesn't know that I'm a witch?"
Tyler: "Look, it's just us, okay."
Samara: "Us you mean, who else?"
Tyler: "My mom, and Caroline's mom. And his (pointing Christian) sister."
Samara: "Well that's comforting!"
Christian: "I'm still waiting for an explanation here."
Samara: "Yeah me too."
Caroline: "Look, it's basically.."
June: "Elena is my cousin. She was killed last week but we learned that her spirit is now on another dimension so our friends, one of them your cousin Bonnie, went to save her. Her body's here, but her spirit's there, so she's not dead but her body has no life now. That is why we need you to protect her and our other friends' body." (Samara looks at her, clearly not expected anything like this, so she is freaked. June continues) "And Katherine," (stops for a second and looks at Katherine) "...she is my cousin too. She is Elena's twin sister. She came to town two days ago. We didn't know, so we were surprised to learn about her too."
Both Samara and Christian look at her and then Katherine with wide open and clearly freaked out eyes, while the others are smiling ridiculously with the twin sister idea.
Damon, listening to the conversation from his own room with his vampire hearing, curses her and intends to go before they come. But as he opened his door, he sees a group of people running to him. He closes the door right away and steps aside. Suddenly the door breaks with the bullets shot from outside. The shooting stops when all their guns are empty. One of them tells the two of them go and check. But as they take their first step, Damon breaks whatever left from the door and runs to the group with his vampire speed. He starts punching them, breaking their necks, and feeding on them, until he kills all of them. Then he hears others approaching, and runs outside the palace as fast as he can.
Tatia walks into Damon's room and sees the mess. He calls one of her men and asks what happened here. He says this is how they found it. Tatia says he must have heard her talking. Upon this her man says this proves that he was one of the fugitives. Tatia doesn't want to agree, but she cannot deny what happened. They ask her what does she want to do. She slowly turns to her men, and says Damon is her friend, so he will not be killed unless she says otherwise. But he can't be allowed to walk freely as that would endanger her throne and also the safety and peace of her lands, which she cannot risk. So Damon needs to be found, and be delivered to the kitsune before the time is up. She looks at her man who told her about Misao's announce and says how much time they have left. He says less than 10 hours. She desperately looks at the room, hoping to find something that belongs to Damon, anything that could use to locate him by magic. Her men say if he got wounded during the fight, he must have dropped some blood. Tatia looks at him and says that could work. Then she looks at everyone and tells them to get ready. They will go to search for him whether she can locate him or not. They nod, and leave Damon's room one by one, and then Tatia looks around, now knowing what to look for.
Back on earth, it's almost darkness. Christian left earlier to go to his home. Tyler walks Caroline to the door. Caroline says the hard part is over. Tyler disagrees, and says the hardest part will be telling her, which will have to happen soon. Caroline nods. Then says she seems nice. Tyler nods. Caroline asks if she needs to worry about her. Tyler smiles and says she doesn't need to worry about anyone. He is hers, and that will never chance. They look at each other for a moment. Caroline says she's not ready. Tyler understands that she means not ready to kiss him. Caroline tells him not to get her wrong. She loves him, but she just can't shake off the idea of Klaus being in his body. She had no clue for half year, and she at least appreciates that he never slept with him. Tyler looks at her and says Bonnie came to him and said Klaus is staked, and if he doesn't find a body in an hour, everyone will die. He had no choice but to be the body. And the only thing he thought was her. He could only hope that Klaus wasn't the biggest jerk they always thought. Caroline says she is glad he wasn't. Upon Tyler's jokingly curious eyes, she adds that doesn't mean she's starting to like him. Tyler asks if he needs to worry about him. Caroline understands that he is making fun of her, and jokingly pushes him. Then Tyler says he will wait for her, whenever she is ready. He has all the time. His tone indicates that he means eternity. They both smile, but before they can say good night to each other, a car light hits Tyler's face. They both look at the car which happens to be a truck, as it turns around the corner. Tyler says they must be new people moving to the town. Suddenly both feel uncomfortable. They look at each other, and then go after the truck. After a few blocks, the truck stops in front of a house, and then a car comes. Two people, a man and a woman - probably man and wife - walk out of the car. Caroline and Tyler hide behing the bushes, at a point where they can see them. The driver of the truck and his helper start unloading. Tyler says they are just a new family. Nothing to worry about. And intends to go. But Caroline stops him, and tells him to look at the man and wife. Tyler squints to see better, and suddenly his expression changes, and he says "Asians". Caroline tells him to make a better guess. Upon this Tyler stays silent for a while, and then slowly speaks:
