|Tyler opens the fridge, and grabs the last blood bag. He looks at it with hesitation for a while, than leaves it back to the fridge. Samara scoffs, and says no one is willing to drink that last. Tyler says he can understand why. If that blood ends, so does everything. Samara says it's been longer than a month. She's even surprised that it lasted this long. Then looks at Tyler and understands that they don't want to leave. Tyler sits on a chair. Samara continues and says that's why they always drank less then they normally would. Then sits on another chair, looks at Tyler and says he doesn't want to leave this town unprotected. Tyler looks at her. Doesn't nod or anything, but she understands that he confirms. Upon this Samara looks to a certain point, and says she doesn't want to leave either. Aliens are coming to conquer but no one seems to bother but them. If they leave too, what are the chances of this town. Tyler looks at the fridge, and says he is not eager to find out. Samara breaths loudly, indicating she's stressed out.
Caroline walks to the basement of the witch house, where the soulless bodies are put. To her surprise, June is there, sitting on the ground near Damon.
Caroline: "What're you doing here?"
June: (looks at her) "Upstairs is boring."
Caroline: (sarcastically) "Because down here is too much fun." (arrives downstairs, and sits on the ground, giving her back to a pillar. Then looks at June, who seems anxious) "How's it going?"
June: (looks at the lifeless body of Damon) "I don't know."
Caroline: "Can't you feel them."
June: "I can't. I feel.. nothing. It's.. blank!"
Caroline: "Is that normal?"
June: "No. Not at all."
June: "I usually feel disturbed. When they are in trouble, I could just feel it. But for a long time, I can't feel them. It's like they're gone, but.. It's like.. it's different." (looks at a confused Caroline) "It's a psychic thing." (Caroline smiles barely) "If a psychic is connected to someone, through blood, through love, through magic, whatever.. We feel them. (looks back at the bodies) "And I can see them with my eyes but.. I can't feel their presence. They are like.. gone, like.."
Caroline: "Cloaked." (June slowly looks at Caroline) "Like how Misao cloaked David and other pure bloods."
June: "Angels couldn't sense them." (looks at the bodies) "Just like how I can't sense them now!" (looks back at Caroline) "Would that mean.."
She can't complete her sentence, but Caroline understands.
Caroline: (with weariness) "Oh my god!"
Sheriff enters his house and goes to kitchen. As he assumed, his wife was cooking. He goes to the tap and drinks a glass of water. As she looks at him, he goes back out.
It's late night. The couple sat on the dinner table and they are eating dinners. Sheriff seems thoughtful, and he is eating slowly and silently. After a moment, she breaks the silence.
Mrs. Carson: "Are you okay?"
Sheriff: (looks at her) "Yeah, fine. Why?"
Mrs. Carson: "You seem distracted."
Sheriff: (chuckles, then puts the fork down and looks at his wife) "You know what I don't get?"
Mrs. Carson: "What?"
Sheriff: "The vampires are insisting on staying in this town."
Mrs. Carson: "Why?"
Sheriff: (shakes his hands, meaning he doesn't know) "That's what I don't get. I mean, we declared war against them. Put vervain in the town's water supply, attacked their houses. I mean, they have nothing left to stay here for. So what is it that keeps them here?"
Mrs. Carson: (shakes her head) "I don't know honey."
Sheriff: (fixes his looks to a certain point) "What if we're making a mistake, Alice?" (looks at her) "What if there is really an alien race coming here for a genocide? What if vampires are really our only hope? Don't you think we would be making the biggest mistakes of our lives?"
Alice: "Why don't you talk to the council?"
Aiden: "I did. They told me to choose a side. Threatened to take my job." (remains silent for a moment) "I don't know what I'm supposed to do."
Alice looks at him, not knowing what to say.
When he arrived to the roof, Tyler sees Katherine sitting at the edge.
Katherine: (barely looks behind) "Hey."
Tyler: (gets closer to her) "Figured you could use some company."
Katherine: (looks at him) "Five hundred years late."
Tyler: (smiles) "Well you know, hybrids are new species." (then sits near her)
Katherine: (remains silent for a while) "You don't have to prove anything to anyone, Tyler."
Tyler: (looks at her) "And I'm not trying to prove anything to anyone."
Katherine: "Really? What if I say, I heard you. Last month, when we were dropping the bloodbags to Samara's fridge."
Tyler: (understands that she means their break up conversation. Looks away) "I said it because she pissed me off. I didn't really mean it."
Katherine: (apparently not convinced, which her voice clearly gives away) "So you don't want to be with her anymore."
Tyler: "She made her choice. Several times. She doesn't want to be with me anymore. We wanted. But you can't just ignore what happened. We are not the same two people who fell in love with. We changed."
Katherine: "Welcome to my world." (Tyler looks at her) "We all had to change, Tyler. To find your place in life, at one point everyone has to change." (looks at Tyler) "As much as it hurts to admit, when I was a human, I was just like Elena. I could die for the people I loved, until Klaus took every single one of them from me. I had to change to survive."
Tyler: (nods) "I get that better now." (looks at Katherine) "One can really learn much from you."
Katherine: (smiles barely) "Don't do this Tyler." (looks at him) "I was with your uncle. Even if I wanted to, I couldn't look at you that way."
Tyler: "Well, Damon slept with Isobel, then fell in love with her daughter!" (Katherine laughs. Tyler slowly continues) "I mean, what's the big deal about it anyway."
Katherine: (confused) "Are you saying you're really into me?"
Tyler: (shakes his head, meaning "why not") "You're gorgeous. You're strong. And no offence to her, but you're way sexier than Elena!" (upon this Katherine laughs) "And deep down you really are a nice person. You just had a rough past."
Katherine: "You missed the part where that past changed me. I'm not that nice innocent girl anymore."
Tyler: "I know."
Katherine looks at Tyler, as his voice indicated that she's grown mature and strong, and he likes it better this way. She looks impressed. But quickly looks away.
Katherine: "Slow down, wolf!"
Upon this Tyler smiles, thinking that he started to get under her skin.
Next morning on earth, Sheriff Carson opens his door and walks out. But as he starts walking down the street, he thinks he hears a voice behind him. He quickly turns around but sees no one. After staring at the empty street for a while, he turns back around, only to be grabbed by someone with vampire speed.
Tatia is casting a spell on the map which she put on the table. But she's apparently confused and tired. One of his men comes closer to her.
Man: "Nothing yet?"
Tatia: "Nothing. I don't know what's going on, but I can't locate him. I've been trying all night, how come I can't find him, it doesn't make sense!"
Man: "Is your magic okay?"
Tatia: "Yeah, my magic's fine. Those candles are like a test for my powers."
Man: "Maybe it's about his shirt."
Man: "I don't know, maybe if he gave up on the shirt it wouldn't qualify as his personal item anymore, so.."
Tatia: "No, it doesn't work that way. As long as his scent is on the shirt it should work just fine." (stares at the map) "There is something else about it. Something different. He's not here, he's like hidden, like.." (snaps her fingers like trying to find the correct word for it)
Tatia: (looks at him) "Yes, that's it! He's cloaked. But how can he be cloaked, he needs magic to do that. And as far as I know no kitsune would help him, and there are no witches around."
Man: "What about his witch friend he was talking about?"
Tatia: "No, Misao got her in Shi no Shi. Her powers are blocked, she's no good." (upon this the man moves uncomfortably, meaning he knows something. Tatia doesn't miss that) "What? What is it? Tell me!"
Man: (looks at her) "You know the witch massacre that happened years before your arrival to this dimension, right?"
Tatia: "Heard of it."
Man: "Well, it's been said that, after the massacre started, some powerful witches gathered to join forces and create some underground hideouts, which cannot be located by spells. If someone is in one of those places, it is said to break any and all kinds of connection to the outside world or dimension."
As the man speaks, we see Damon in the rebel base, then June at the basement of the witch house near the bodies; hinting that the rebel base is one of those hideouts and that's why June feels the bodies blank.
Tatia: "So you think he found one of those places?"
Man: "With or without knowing, if he's in one of those places now, there is no way to find him."
Tatia: "And that's why I can't locate him."
Man: "Seems like the best explanation."
Tatia: "So this spell, worked fine against Inari?"
Man: "Legend says so."
Tatia: "But Inari did find them and killed them, right?"
Man: "Eventually, yes."
Man: "She cast a spell. That way she was able to know when the witches left their sacred places. And once they did it, she sent her forces and hunted them down one by one."
Tatia: (looks disturbed) "Do you think I can do the same spell?"
Man: "Might be hard trying to live up to Inari, but you might do something similar."
Tatia nods, and the man comes near her to start the spell.
Nathan knocks Damon's door and then walks inside without waiting. Damon lifts his head from his pillow and sees that it's Nathan.
Damon: "Did I tell you to come in?"
Nathan: "Actually you did. Just not yet. It was the future you. I knew you would invite me in."
Damon: "What do you want?" (his voice was almost saying "Shut up already")
Nathan: "I just want us to be on the same page, Damon." (Damon doesn't react, but the way he looks indicates that he is listening) "You see, there's something I know about you. I just don't know what I should do about it."
Damon: "What do you know?"
Nathan: "That you killed Scott." (Damon lifts his head without getting up and look at Nathan) "You see that's a problem, because he was my friend."
Damon: "How do you know that?"
Nathan: "Let's just say I asked you a few questions and you with all your self confidence replied them. But then you ran to me with your vampire speed and choked me to death, which is when Meredith interfered and separated us. Then Ulma walked in, and I yelled everyone the truth, which I must say no one took well. Long story short, it wasn't a nice scene in my head. And something tells me in the real version you're gonna do something to make it a lot worse!"
Damon: "And you're telling me this, why?"
Nathan: "Let's call it a leverage, Damon. To ensure that you won't screw us over, which I think you will." (Damon stands up) "You see, as much as you hate it, you need us. And as much as I hate it, we need you. You see the mutual benefits in here?" (seems like he already got an answer) "I thought so."
Damon: "Get out!"
Nathan: "Okay, I will. But I just want to say, that I'm glad we are on the same page."
Damon's vampire veins appear, but Nathan, apparently not threatened by it, simply turns around and walks out of the room.
Klaus is sleeping in his cell. Elena moves closer to the bars.
Elena: "Catch!" (Then rolls the ring that Bonnie sent to locate her.)
Bonnie: (holds it when it comes to her. Smiles) "My power ring."
Elena: (smiles too) "Do you remember when I first gave it to you?"
Bonnie: (happily) "I do!"
Elena: "As soon is you put it on you acted like Mandarin!"
Bonnie: "Yeah, and Matt was the Iron Man, and he always saved you."
Elena: (with longing) "How little and innocent we were!"
Bonnie: "And now look at us. The shit in our world wasn't just enough, so we got involved with other dimensions!"
Elena: (they laugh for a while. they they remain silent, and Elena looks at Bonnie that way for a while) "I'm sorry. For saying.. you know."
Bonnie: "I know."
Elena: "I was just upset that we were all trapped in here."
Bonnie: "We'll figure it out."
Elena: "I hope so, Bonnie. Klaus was right. June has no one left but me. I have to make it for her."
Then tries to get up to go back to the corner she always sleeps. But as soon as she got up she trips over and falls to the bars and her arm just goes out of the cell. While Bonnie is anxious, Elena seems confused.
Bonnie: "Elena, are you okay?"
Elena: "Yeah, I'm.. just.." (looks at Bonnie) "I was spelled to stay inside, Bonnie. I wasn't supposed to be able to put my arm out!"
Bonnie: (looks around for a while. Then looks like she felt something) "Oh my god!"
Bonnie: "The spell, it's wearing off!"
Elena and Bonnie look at each other with shock.
In Tatia's palace, the man that helped Tatia with the spell comes near her and tells something's happening in her room. They run to her room, and Tatia sees a blood trail on the map. Understands that he got out of the hideout, but freaks as soon as she realizes where he's headed. She quickly gives an alarm, and tells her men to prepare their units. Damon's going to Shi no Shi and they have to be there before he does.
Meanwhile, unaware of everything, rebellion's army has already started walking to Shi no Shi.
