|Damon opened the Salvatore's door. Apparently Elena has been knocking. After he saw her, he stepped aside in a welcoming way. Elena walking while looking at the threshold rather nervously.
Elena: "You have no idea how glad I am that no one owns this place."
Damon: (closed the door) "Well, no one alive." (meaning she's still the owner)
Elena: (looked at him with a weird happiness) "Thanks." (looked around) "I just.. I'm almost afraid to visit anyone. 'coz of the.."
She didn't complete the sentence, but everyone understood anyway.
Damon: "You'll get used to it. In a couple of decades. Give or take."
Elena: (sarcastically) "That's comforting."
Damon: "You just gotta develop your own technique."
Elena: "What's yours?"
Elena: (smiled) "Right!"
Damon: "Remember the first time you invited me in? Acting like a gentleman, saying stuff like "I'm not coming in unless someone invites me in", works every time."
Elena: "Gentleman wouldn't really work for me."
Damon: "Well, a girl can have her own ways."
Elena: (looked with disbelief) "That's dirty! June's here!"
Upon this Damon and June looked at each other with a naughty smile. Then they all headed inside. Damon led them to the bar and while looking at Elena at times, he put a drink and poured some vervain fluid in it. Elena was looking nervous, and June seemed like she had no idea what was going on. Eventually Damon handed the glass to Elena.
Damon: "Bottom's up." (Elena took the glass and looked at it nervously. Damon was watching her carefully. Then Elena took a few deep breaths and drank all at once. Her reaction was, to both Elena and Damon's surprises, a few simple coughs. Then she turned to normal. Damon was something between amazed and confused) "Damn, you're strong!"
Elena: (she was looking at the glass. She was very confused) "Stefan almost collapsed when he first drank vervain. And he was like a hundred and sixty."
Damon: "More, in fact."
Damon: "Then you might be amazed to know that what I put in your drink was what I get in a week!"
Elena: "Then why am I different? Why am I not reacting to it like others."
Damon: "That's what I wanna talk about."
Then he headed into the living room after moving his head in a "follow me" kind of way to Elena and June. They looked at each other as they followed.
June: "What's vervain?"
Elena: "A toxic herb." (June looked confused) "For vampires."
June: "Then why do you drink it?"
Damon: "To build tolerance." (looked at Elena) "But looking at her reaction, I don't really think she needs it."
Sue: "Relax. You'll be fine."
Matt: "It's hard to relax when you're about to meet your sheriff father. Does he know about us?"
Sue: "I'd never bring you here if he did."
Sue: (laughed briefly) "You'll do just fine. You love me. I love you. The rest doesn't concern him."
Matt: "Then why are we meeting him?"
Sue: "Because you wanted to."
Matt: "Valid point! Next time, let's not listen to me."
Sue didn't say anything, but she pulled him closer to her. In no time they arrived to the front door.
Sue: "Remember. Don't bring anything up about work."
Matt: "Got it."
Sue: (rang the bell) "Because at home he's the sweetest person. But when it comes to work, he's a total .." (door opened before she could complete her sentence. Sue looked and saw her father, then turned to Matt with an uncomfortable smile) ".. gentleman. A total gentleman."
Aiden: "I'll just pretend I never heard any of this."
Sue: (blushed, but pulled herself together quickly) "Dad, this is Matt. Matt, my father, sheriff."
Matt: (offered hand) "Nice to meet you, sir."
Aiden: (they handshaked) "You to. Please, come on in."
They walked inside. Aiden closed the door after them. Sue's mom was also there to meet them.
Mom: "Oh my god! Is this Matt?"
Mom: "You never told me how handsome he is."
Matt: "Thanks Mrs. Carson."
Mom: "Oh, call me Alice. My daughter talks about you all the time, you were like the son we never had."
Sue: "Stop with the compliments."
Sue: "You'll make him blush, he's not used to it."
Alice: "Well, it's your fault, young lady. I mean, look at him."
Matt chuckled upon this.
Aiden: "Matt, why don't you give me your jacket?"
Matt: (while taking it off) "Um, if you just tell me where I could.."
Aiden: "No no, it's fine."
Matt: (while taking the jacket off, he noticed Sue and Alice went to kitchen. He whispered to Aiden while handing the jacket) "I didn't know you were using that word."
Aiden: "I know your diet. As long as I know it's not sanguine, you're good."
Matt looked at him for a while. Then Aiden moved his head meaning get inside. Matt didn't argue and headed inside. Aiden followed after hanging Matt's jacket.
Stefan: "What did I miss?"
Elena: "Nothing worth interest."
June: "Elena drank vervain for the first time."
Stefan: "What? Why didn't you tell me?"
Elena: "Like I said, nothing worth interest."
June: "She took it pretty well."
Damon: "I mean, really well."
June: "Damon was jealous."
Damon: "I so hate you."
Elena: "Anyway, we were just gonna talk about.."
Damon: "Elena's divine strength."
June looked at him oddly, as if she realized he specifically picked that word. Damon realized her look and quickly looked at her. Then looked back at Stefan and Elena.
Elena: "I wouldn't say divine, when there's something's wrong with it."
Stefan: (worriedly) "What's wrong?"
Elena: "Well, nothing's wrong with it, except that it's all wrong! Stefan, I'm the youngest vampire here, but somehow I'm the strongest."
Damon: "And you have no idea why, or how."
Elena: "Well.." (remained silent for a moment) "except this.. theory.. that probably makes no sense."
Stefan: "What theory?"
Elena: (straightened and Stefan took his arm back) "Bonnie once said she couldn't take down Katherine, like she could take down other vampires. She said Katherine was significantly stronger. And she's a doppelganger, so if it works that way, it might explain my strength."
Damon: (stood up randomly) "Speculation 101, class dismissed. Don't forget to read from chapter six to nine."
Elena smiled and leaned back.
Stefan: "You've got something better, Damon?"
Damon: "How about the truth itself?"
Elena: (surprised) "What?"
Stefan: "Do you know what's happening to Elena?"
Damon: "I know what's making you strong. It's the same thing that's making me strong right now. But unlike yours, mine is temporary."
Elena: "You found my power source?"
Stefan: (curiously) "Is that true?"
Elena: (straightened again) "What is it?"
Damon: (looked at both of them) "Has any of you noticed something weird about the Fell family?"
Stefan: (immediately stood up) "You know what, Damon? I need you to drop it."
Elena: (she stood up too) "No, he can't. Stefan, this concerns me, I have to know."
Stefan: "Elena, the last time he was obsessed with a family secret, Lockwoods turned out to be werewolves." (looked at Damon) "And I don't feel like getting involved with other ancient family secrets."
Damon and Stefan looked at each other in a challenging way. Elena was looking at both of them curiously.
Caroline: (while laughing) "No way!"
Antonio: "I just can't ever forget it."
Bonnie: "And still having to go to school with her everyday shouldn't have helped."
Caroline: "Must be embarrassing."
Antonio: "You have no idea."
Bonnie: "Still, something turned up alright."
Antonio: (with a little sarcasm) "Yeah, big life lesson. Like I needed it."
Bonnie: "I'm just saying."
Antonio: "Okay, your turn. What's your biggest regret."
Bonnie: "Well, tough one. I guess it is.. that I never listened to my grams enough." (Caroline looked at her sadly) "She was trying to teach me something my whole life. I just never heard her. If I did, I could've been a lot more than I am right now."
Antonio: "I think you're pretty great right now, just the way you are."
Bonnie smiled upon this. Caroline saw them looking at each other all amazed. Getting oddly jealous a bit, she tried to change the subject.
Caroline: "So, you and your dad?"
Antonio: "Yeah. We're like best friends."
Caroline: "So you have no siblings."
Antonio: "I choose to feel lucky about it."
Bonnie: "That makes three of us."
Caroline: "Well, technically I don't count." (they looked at her) "I'm not the only child."
Caroline: "I've got a step sister. But I never met her, so on second thought.."
Antonio: (confused) "You've never met?"
Caroline: "I was on my way to. It was her birthday."
Bonnie: "Oh my god, I know that day!"
Caroline: "My car got stuck in the forest, I ended up finding Matt's sister's body.."
Antonio: "Your busboy friend?" (Caroline nodded barely) "Oh my god!"
Caroline: "Yeah. So I went to police instead. Got questioned all night. Thank god my mom was sheriff."
Antonio: (straightened) "Helps."
Caroline: "Didn't help him. They didn't find the killer."
Bonnie: (nervously) "Because it was no murder. She was od'ed, remember?"
Caroline: "She was buried, Bonnie. You don't od and then bury yourself."
Bonnie quickly kicked Caroline's leg in a way to warn her. She looked at Bonnie angrily for a while. Then calmed down. Antonio noticed something was not right.
Antonio: "I guess I'm in the middle of something I'm not supposed to hear."
Bonnie: "She was dating Matt back then. It hit her pretty hard."
Caroline was annoyed, but played along.
Antonio: "I'm sorry."
Antonio: "So how is he doing?"
Caroline: "He's fine."
Antonio: "You don't lose a sister and then be fine."
Caroline: "A lot happened since then."
Antonio: "A lot?"
Bonnie: "You know, life."
Antonio: "I just can't imagine what could possibly distract someone from such loss."
Bonnie: (she and Caroline looked at each other in silence for a while) "I might come up with a thing or two."
Caroline: "That was one crazy year!"
Bonnie: "For all of us."
Antonio noticed Caroline and Bonnie oddly got saddened. With an effort to cheer them up, he tried to change the subject.
Antonio: "So, Mystic Falls." (they looked at him) "You said the town's named after it."
Antonio: "Is it worth seeing?"
Caroline: "Well, it's best with the morning light, which we missed, but there's still sunset."
Antonio: (looked at them with a reassuring smile) "I don't know the way."
Bonnie couldn't help smiling upon this. Caroline smiled too. Then they got up.
Elena: "Meredith Fell is what?"
Damon: "An angel, if she was telling the truth."
Stefan: "How did you learn that?"
Damon: "Well, the short version. I asked her." (they looked at him, clearly not believing him) "A few times."
Elena: "You threatened her."
Damon: "That's the long version."
Stefan: "What is an angel? I mean, what they do, why is she here?"
Damon: "She said there are others like her."
Damon: "I'd ask more, but every time she said something she begged me to stop, like the universe was depending on her secret or something. So I let her go."
Elena: "So you think that's why I'm the strongest of you. Because I drank her blood during my transition."
Stefan: "So her blood gives vampires a great power."
Damon: "My body was about to explode with power when I fed on her. But it's temporary, because -- like hybrids, I guess it only matters during the transition."
Elena: "What else they do?"
Damon: "I know they can heal fast. And they can sense vampires." (Suddenly the door was knocked. Damon turned his head to the door and smiled dangerously) "Speaking of.." (Damon went to the door and opened it. Just as he guessed, it was Meredith. He leaned to the threshold and looked at Meredith with a sinister smile) "Well well. Look who's here. We were just talking about you."
Meredith: "I figured you would. That's why I called my team."
Damon: "What, you're gonna kill us now?"
Meredith: "No, we're going to expose us." (at that time Stefan, Elena and June showed up behind Damon. Meredith looked all of them) "I need you all to come with me."
Damon: "To where?"
Meredith: "To the forest."
Meredith: (with a reassuring tone) "I told you last night, Damon. We're not a threat to you." (Damon looked at her curiously) "Trust me, none of you don't wanna miss what we have to say."
Damon looked at others. They were looking at him back. Clearly all of them were unsure.
Aiden: "That was last summer."
Matt: "Yeah, it looks new."
Aiden: "There's a joke between Sue and me. Alice caught us off guard here. When we noticed the camera it was too late."
Matt laughed softly. Then quickly looked at the door.
Matt: "Where're they?"
Aiden: "Cooking. Ever ate duck before?"
Matt: "I think I have once. I was nine or something.."
Aiden: "Don't tell them. They wanted to do something new for you." (Matt looked at him) "Also Sue is cooking your favorite, in case you don't like it. She'd never miss that one."
Matt: (smiled ridiculously) "No, she wouldn't."
Aiden: (looked at the door for a while, then looked at Matt) "Have you told her?" (Matt didn't understand at first) "You know.."
Matt: (suddenly understood) "No."
Aiden: "Will you?"
Matt: (looked at him deeply) "I figured it'd be better if she learned it from her family first."
Aiden: (exhaled and smiled) "Nice comeback." (a brief silence) "You know, she's a member of a founding family. Eventually she has to know."
Matt: "Then I'm guessing your reason for not telling her yet is same as mine."
Aiden: (nodded barely) "We both wanna protect her." (Matt also nodded barely) "So tell me, what does Sue mean to you?"
Matt: "I love her."
Aiden: "That's a strong word."
Matt: "Which I'm not afraid to use." (Aiden looked impressed) "I'm not fooling around, Aiden."
Aiden: (with a reassuring smile) "Ah, I know you wouldn't dare." (Matt smiled. Then Aiden randomly changed the topic) "What's it like to see ghosts?"
Matt: (surprised at first. Then tried to think how to answer) "Scary, I guess. You see someone but cannot know whether they're dead or alive. It takes some getting used to."
Aiden: "Still, must be cool to be able to see your past loved ones. You know, parents, grandparents, old friends.."
Matt: "They need to be something supernatural when they die. You know, a witch, or werewolf, or.."
Aiden: (interrupted) "Vampire. Like your sister was?"
Aiden: (nodded to himself, meaning he understood) "So you see her a lot?"
Matt: "Not lately, no."
Aiden: "Why not?"
Matt: "Supernatural that got stuck on the other side need to find peace is to move on. And I guess for them to move on, we need to move on from them. That's why they don't like to stick around. Other side is a lonely place."
Aiden: "Ghosts can't see each other?" (Matt shook his head, meaning "no") "That's weird."
Matt: "And lonely. A person could lose his mind there."
Aiden: "Still, I wouldn't mind being a werewolf."
Matt: (apparently found this too odd) "What?"
Aiden: "I mean, their bite kills vampires. It'd be easy like that. Definitely worth the con."
Matt: "It only works on full moons." (Aiden weirdly looked at him) "Tyler's a hybrid."
Aiden: "Right. Well, that's the catch I guess."
Matt: "You haven't seen any werewolf transformation, have you?"
Aiden: (looked at him curiously) "No. Why?"
Matt: "Let's just say, there's a reason it's called a curse."
Aiden oddly looked at him. But before he could speak, the door opened and Sue walked in. Matt and Aiden looked at her.
Sue: "Lunch's ready."
They immediately stopped talking and followed Sue to the living room.
Antonio: "It looks beautiful. Soothing. And calm."
Antonio: "Too calm for a falls."
Bonnie: "It's not like this is Mississippi. The flow is slow."
Antonio: "So, what's so mystic about it?"
Caroline: "Notice how thin the water is?"
Caroline: When the morning sun hits the water from that angle, it's just for a couple of minutes, the water breaks the light and those rocks behind it, appear all colorful."
Antonio: "Like a rainbow."
Bonnie: "Like a rainbow."
Antonio: "And we missed that?"
Bonnie: "Shame on us."
Antonio: (looked at Bonnie with a smile) "Maybe some other time you'll bring me here in the morning!"
Bonnie: (smiled) "Count on it."
Antonio: (to both of them) "You also said something about the sunset?"
Caroline: "Well, for that we've gotta go up top."
Antonio: "All the way there?"
Caroline: "We still got an hour or so. You don't wanna come this far and leave without seeing it, do you?"
Antonio: "It's just.. I'm not dressed properly for hiking."
Bonnie: (cheerfully) "Trust me, it'll be worth it."
Antonio: (looked at her cheerfully) "If you say so."
Caroline oddly looked at them. Even though she still loved Tyler, she was feeling oddly jealous. She eventually turned her back and started walking. Bonnie and Antonio followed her.
Elena: "Where did you say we're going?"
Meredith: "To where I'm told to take you."
Elena: "How far is it?"
Meredith: "We're almost there."
Damon: "If you're walking us into a trap, Meredith, so help me god, I will.."
Meredith: (interrupted him and walked towards him angrily) "I'm walking us, into a trap, Damon, not you. Angels have managed to keep their existence a secret all this time, it's for a good reason. There's nothing friend to us out there, we have to protect our own. It's been this way for thousands, maybe even millions of years, I don't know. But I do know one thing, if they want to expose themselves to you, it's only because they're desperate. So stop being threatened! We're the ones who should freak out."
Damon raised his eyebrows, not knowing what to say. As Meredith turned around and continued walking, Elena saw that Stefan was looking the same way.
June: "So the reason you wanna meet this deep inside the forest.. You don't wanna risk anymore exposure?"
Elena: "Or to drop four dead bodies. I don't know. For now I'm just walking."
Stefan: "Well, we've got vampire speed if we have to skedaddle."
June: "Nice to see you've considered us all."
Damon: "You can block their powers, can't you?"
June: "Well, technically. I don't know how many of them are there."
Elena: (to Meredith) "How many of you guys are out there?"
Meredith: (suddenly stopped and looked at them with a smile) "You tell." (looked at some place else) "That one is Nick." (upon this they all turned where she pointed and saw a boy it his early twenties walking towards them) "Ashley," (they looked at someplace else and saw a girl in her mid-late teens) "Brigitte. (suddenly they noticed that the angels were coming towards them in a circle form) "There's Arnold, Stephan. Natalie, our newest member." (Damon oddly found himself looking at Natalie longer than others) "Gary, who found us and gathered us for a purpose. And finally, my twin brother Christian."
Stefan: (when they finished looking around) "So it's just the eight of you?"
Meredith: "Nine, me included."
Christian: "There are others out there, obviously, but this is our team."
Elena: "So are you guys are like, from heaven?"
Brigitte: "Actually not. We're born and raised just like humans, and here on earth."
Elena: "Then what's with the angel thing?"
Gary: "For our powers and stuff. Angel is only what we're called. We're not the kind of angels you think we are."
Damon: "We think?"
Natalie: "From heaven."
Damon found himself looking oddly fascinated by Natalie.
Damon: "I might argue about that."
Natalie realized that was a compliment sort of, and smiled barely.
Stefan: "When you said this is just your team.. Do you guys hang around like werewolves do in packs."
Arnold: "It's more complicated than that."
Nick: "We're just the ones who united under some purpose. But most of us choose to be solo. It's harder to detect us when we're on our own."
Stefan: "Then why are you a team?"
Gary: "Sometimes it's necessary."
Elena: "So if I got this right, you find an angel, and you ask them if they want to join you."
Christian: "And if they say yes, they become a part of the team."
Elena: "Just like that?"
Christian: "Just like that."
Elena: "No background check, no testing.."
Stephan: "We're not a gang, we're a team."
Damon: "Well then how do you know they're friendly?"
Ashley: "Because an angel would never be enemy of another angel." (upon this Brigitte cleared her throat, meaning she's forgetting something. They all looked at her, and then looked down. Ashley understood) "Well, except.."
Damon: "Except what?"
Alice: "Something wrong?"
Matt: "Ah, no. I.. I just.."
Sue: (to her mom) "I told you duck would be too much."
Matt: "No, it's delicious. I just, looking at you, felt a bit overdressed."
Aiden chuckled. And they all smiled
Sue: "It's sort of my fault. I didn't know what you guys would wear, so I told him to be prepared for everything."
Alice: "I just thought Matt would feel more comfortable if we weren't all so serious."
Matt: "I do, and everything's great. Thank you."
Alice: (smiled) "You're welcome."
Matt and Sue smiled at each other with love. Seeing their looks, Aiden and Alice smiled to each other also. They were apparently appreciating Matt and his relationship with their daughter.
Sue: "Mom? Dad?"
Matt: "I was just wondering, would it be okay if I took Sue for the rest of the day."
Alice: "Oh, sure."
Aiden: "Hold on." (looked at both of them)
Aiden: "Where're you gonna go?"
Alice: "Oh for Christ's sake, Aiden, leave the lovers alone!"
Aiden: "Okay, fine. But bring her back home before eight."
Alice: "Ah come on sweetheart, be cool!"
Aiden: "Alright, fine. Ten o'clock. But don't be a second late!"
Sue: (went ahead and kissed her father happily) "You're the best!"
Aiden: (with a smile) "I know."
Sue: (as they walked out of the living room, silently enough so her parents won't hear) "See? They loved you!"
Meanwhile in the living room, after Matt and Sue went out and closed the door..
Alice: "It's nice to see you've began to trust our daughter."
Aiden: "It's him I trust." (looked at Alice, who upon what he said looked at him weirdly) "I mean, he's the quarterback. Nothing bad will happen to her with him."
They smiled to each other. Meanwhile Sue and Matt had arrived to the car.
Sue: "You can relax, they're not the type to watch until you disappear."
Matt: "Actually this is me relaxed."
Sue: (laughed) "But I told you, didn't I? He's the nicest person at home."
Matt: "What freaks me out is what will happen when he wears the badge again tomorrow."
Sue: "He won't do anything to you. He knows how much you mean to me."
Matt: "And he's got weird wishes."
Sue: (smiled oddly. She clearly figured out when he might have decided that) "What were you talking about? .. when I called you for lunch?"
Matt: "Umm, just.. men stuff."
Sue: (with a naughty smile) "Sure!"
Then they drove away.
Meredith: "Angels are usually good to each other."
Damon: "Usually and always are two different things."
Meredith: "Exactly. Out there there's a different group of angels, which we are fighting against."
Stefan: "So an angel isn't always good to other angels."
Christian: "That's what Brigitte meant."
Meredith: "You should know that, angels are not one kind. Like normal vampires and original vampires, we have a different kind of angels, which are stronger than us."
Damon: "What do you mean, like original angels?"
Meredith: (laughs) "Well, technically. But no, not original angels."
Damon: "Then.. ?"
An brief silence took place. Then Stephan replied.
Stephan: "Pure bloods."
Stefan: "Pure bloods?"
Arnold: "Yeah. Pure blood angels are the only angels that has remained pure since the beginning of time."
Gary: "Or the first angels, as far as we know."
Natalie: "When an angel mates with a human, the offspring becomes half blood, like all of us are."
Brigitte: "And during the generations, all of the pure bloods had to mate with humans to continue their bloodline, so today except them, there are no pure bloods left."
Elena: "Well, how could they remain pure?" (an awkward silence took place. It was obvious that none of them had the stomach to say it out loud. When the silence continued for too long, Elena suddenly understood. With disgust) "No!"
Damon: "You've got to be kidding me!"
Gary: "You figured it out."
June: "By mating with each other?"
Elena: "That's gross!"
Stefan: "What do you mean, they mate with their own siblings?"
Elena: "This is sick! This is.."
Gary: "This is more than sick, this is disgusting! But this is the only way they can remain pure, so they do it. All of us share the same disgust. No one approves them, that's why everyone parted their ways with them."
Damon: "So what's the big deal about remaining pure, why would they want that?"
Nick: "So that they can remain powerful."
Damon: "What difference does it make? I mean, what are angel powers?
Nick: "Well for starters, we heal fast. But we need to put a lot of effort to do that. A pure blood just wants to heal, and they heal." (snaps fingers) "Just like that."
Natalie: "No sickness, no disease, no wounds.. Almost nothing can harm them."
Ashley: "We also have wing powers."
Stefan: "Wing powers?"
Christian: "Yeah, but we have no control on them. Pure bloods can use their wings like they use their arms. It's too easy for them. But it's not as easy for half bloods."
Elena: "Because it hurts?"
Christian: "No, because it's random."
Natalie: "We want to use our wings. But it's not really up to us. The chances of our wings to show up when we ask for them is almost never. Most of us don't even know how does wings look like."
Damon: "Has any of you ever used their wings before?"
Natalie: "I didn't."
Brigitte: "Me neither."
Gary: "I saw it on a pure blood but I never used it myself."
Stephan: "I used once. It's white, big, and it's beautiful." (Elena looked at him)
Damon: "Then how can you know that someone is an angel?"
Gary: "Our kind has the ability to know what species someone is. We can sense the presence of angels, like we can sense vampires, werewolves, (looked at June), psychics, and witches."
Damon: "Are you reading my mind?"
Gary: "No, I can't do that. But psychics can, as long as they touch, am I right?"
June nodded. She was clearly fascinated.
Damon: "So what do you want from us?"
Gary: "Pure bloods are coming to Mystic Falls. But they are not just coming. They are after something, and they are coming to get it. We need your help to stop them."
Damon: "What makes you think that we'll help?"
Gary: "Because they are coming to get it from you."
Stefan: "What do we have that they want?"
Christian: "Pure bloods want power, and as you can tell because they mate with their own siblings to remain pure, they are willing to do anything to get it."
Natalie: "Power they have. What they really want is more power."
Elena: "More power. As in, hybrids?"
Natalie: "Yes. But when angels mate with other species, their pureness wears off. They tried it, it doesn't work."
Elena: "Then how are they gonna do that?"
Gary: (while staring at Elena) "By using the loophole in the rules of the nature."
Elena: (looked at Gary for a while. Then she suddenly understood. In shock) "The doppelganger!"
Gary nodded, as Stefan, Damon and June were oddly looking at Elena.
Caroline: "I know, right."
Bonnie: "But something tells me you'll never come here again."
Antonio: "Damn right I won't!" (they all chuckled) "But I won't say I came to Mystic Falls and didn't see here."
Bonnie: "No you won't."
Antonio: "Thanks to you two."
Caroline: "It was our genuine pleasure."
Antonio smiled then looked at them.
Antonio: "You've known each other your whole life, right?"
Bonnie: "We're more like sisters to each other."
Caroline: "We're a family. A fighting, painful, disfunctional and occasionally trying to kill each other kind of family."
Bonnie: "You'll really hold that against me forever, won't you."
Antonio: "What, she tried to kill you?"
Caroline: "She had broken up with her mom's adoptive son. It hit her pretty hard."
Upon this Antonio realized Caroline was totally picking on Bonnie in a rather friendly annoying way, and couldn't help laughing softly.
Bonnie: "There were other factors too."
Antonio: "What, you got dibs on Tyler?"
Caroline: "Haha, she wishes!"
Antonio: "Stole your Artistry?"
Bonnie: "Haa! Heaven forbid!" (they all laughed) "I'm not that rich anyway."
Antonio: "Then what was the other factors?"
Bonnie: "I was being manipulated by an evil force."
Antonio: "Haha, that explains it!"
Caroline oddly looked at Bonnie, unable to believe she'd really say it. But after Bonnie winked her, Caroline realized that Antonio was taking it as a joke, so she played along.
Caroline: "What, don't you believe it?"
Antonio: "Evil forces? I don't think so. I'm not superstitious."
Bonnie: "Well believe it or not, we've got a lot of them going on around here."
Antonio: (jokingly) "Really?"
Caroline: "You don't think this town's just famous for it's falls, do you?"
Antonio: "And what, MF is actually an acronym for malicious forces?"
Caroline: "Well, duh!"
Bonnie: "And I was wondering why we can never take a break. It's been under our noses all this time!"
Antonio: (got serious) "Wait.. Are you guys, like, seriously serious?"
Bonnie and Caroline got quiet for a second. Then both of them snorted at the same time, meaning they're making fun of him. Antonio laughed with them.
Caroline: (jokingly) "Totally! We're like the Knickerbocker gang, protecting our home from bad guys."
Antonio: "Well if you're doing something like that, I'd be original with it. Like, Mystic Falls gang."
Bonnie: "Mystic Falls gang. I like it!"
Antonio: "So I heard Caroline's the muscle of the group. What's your role?"
Bonnie: "I do magic."
Bonnie: "Hmm hmm."
Antonio: "Can you make coins disappear?"
Bonnie: "I can make anything disappear."
Upon this Antonio looked at her for a while. Then he put his hand in his pocket and took his car keys. Then put them on the rug in a challenging way.
Antonio: "I wager."
Bonnie: (looked at him naughtily) "I'll take your car."
Antonio: "If you can make it disappear it's yours anyway."
Upon this Caroline and Bonnie looked at each other. Both were smiling ridiculously. Eventually Bonnie put her one hand on the keys, and started moving her lips quietly. Antonio was looking at her very carefully with a slightly afraid smile. A few seconds later Bonnie finally raised her hand. The keys were gone.
Antonio: (in shock) "What!?" (girls laughed) "How'd you do that!?"
Bonnie: "Check your pocket!"
Antonio checked, and realized the keys were in there. He still took them out to make sure. He looked at Bonnie in shock.
Antonio: "I don't believe it!"
Bonnie: "Let that be a lesson to you: don't mess with a pro!"
Antonio: "I'll definitely keep that in mind!"
They smiled to each other. Looking at them, Caroline again felt oddly jealous. She randomly looked at the sun and realized it disappeared behind the hills.
Caroline: "It's late. I've gotta go."
Antonio: (looked at her surprised) "Already?"
Caroline: "Yeah." (stood up) "I promised mom we'd have dinner together, so sooner I go the better." (to Bonnie) "You coming?"
Antonio looked at Bonnie too.
Bonnie: (to Antonio) "Do you want to?"
Antonio: "Actually I was hoping we would stay here for a while."
Bonnie: (to Caroline) "You can go if you want. Antonio still has his car, he can take me."
Antonio: (looked at Caroline and noticed she was hesitating) "You don't have to worry about her."
Caroline: "Ah, she's not the one I'm worried about!" (Antonio bit his lower lip with a jokingly anxiety) "See you guys tomorrow?"
Caroline looked at them for a couple more seconds, then left. They watched her until she disappeared. Then looked at each other. Both were smiling.
Antonio: "So, what else can you do with magic?"
Bonnie: "You got a candle?"
Antonio: "I've got a lighter."
Bonnie: "Ironically I don't need a lighter!"
Antonio looked at her for a while. Then understood what she meant and smiled.
Elena: "But I'm a vampire now. I'm useless as doppelganger."
Gary: "There's another way. Doppelganger blood contains the strongest life force in the world. That's the reason only doppelganger blood can be used for powerful spell, like curses, creating new species.."
Elena: "Successfully transitioning hybrids."
Gary: "Exactly. And that kind of energy doesn't just vanish."
Elena: "So I'm still doppelganger?"
Gary: "You are, but you said it, you are useless. When you became a vampire, you lost the energy, but it's still somewhere out there. In order to make it useful, there has to be an anchor that connects it to an imaginary host."
Stephan: "Like someone who shares the same blood with you."
Elena: "I'm.. I'm not following."
Ashley: "The energy is passed on to you from the previous doppelganger. But not directly. There are all those generations between you and the other."
Nick: "The rest of the family is like carriers."
Ashley: "Which means only they can function as the anchor."
Christian: "So anyone who has access to magics, if they know what they're doing, then can use a Petrova descendant's blood to access the doppelganger's energy."
Damon: "So as long as the bloodline continues.."
Stefan: "The doppelganger's energy can be used."
Elena: "But the line ended with me. There's no one else."
Gary: "Are you sure about that?"
Elena: "Well, unless I had a child and then I was compelled to forget.. But I'd remember because only an original can compel vampires and their compulsion wears off when they die, and since all off the originals are dead.."
Christian: "Your eye is way off the ball, Elena."
Elena: "What does that mean?"
Meredith: "Elena, think. Anyone joined your family lately?" (Elena and June looked at each other) "It's June. It's all about June!"
Elena: (suddenly understood) "Oh my god!"
Meredith: "June's father is your mother's brother."
Brigitte: "Which means you and June share the same grandparents, therefore the same bloodline."
Christian: "June is the last living member of the Petrova line. As long as she's alive, the doppelganger's energy can be used by pure bloods."
Elena suddenly got defensive and pushed June behind her.
Elena: "If you so much as try to hurt her!.."
Gary: "No no, you got us wrong. We're not here to hurt her."
Elena: "You're not."
Arnold: "Even if we were, that wouldn't solve anything. This thing goes back to the original loophole."
Arnold: "June's cousin, her cousin's cousin, twice removed, seven times removed, I don't know.. But she may have descendants all around the world that you may never have heard of."
Gary: "Arnold's right. Even if it wasn't June, there will always be someone else. That's why what we need to do is solve the real problem."
Elena slowly eased off, and June slowly moved from her back.
Arnold: "We need to take out the pure bloods."
Damon: "You mean kill them."
Suddenly all angels freaked.
All of them: "NO!"
Meredith: "No, we can't kill them!"
Stefan and June looked at them quite confused.
Damon: "I think you all have a misconception about what taking out is."
Meredith: "That's what I was telling you last night, Damon. You can't kill an angel."
Natalie: "We are a unique species, our spirits are pure. But when we die in pain or agony, our souls become dreadful monsters, which we call phantoms."
Gary: "And phantoms can be destroyed by nothing but angel wings."
Elena: "Which you can't use."
Damon: "Then how do you plan to.. how'd you say it.. take them out?"
Stephan: "The most powerful weapon of a pure blood angel is their wings. If we somehow manage to rip them off from their body, it'll render them weak."
Gary: "Then we can put them in some place for the rest of their natural lives until they die of old age."
Damon: "That's your plan?"
Brigitte: "We'd me more than glad to hear a better one." (Damon looked at her) "I wasn't being sarcastic."
Stephan: "But that's the only possible way to get rid of them and avoid their phantoms."
Gary: "But in order to do that, we need a lot of muscle."
Stephan: "And that would include you all and anyone who is willing to or can help."
Upon this, Damon, Elena, June and Stefan looked at each other. They were all feeling rather nervous, as this new threat sounded very hard to stop.
Antonio: "Thanks for leaving my car to me." (Bonnie laughed) "My dad would've killed me if I told him I lost it on a magic wager."
Bonnie: "I needed someone to bring me back."
Antonio: (smiled) "I had a really great time today."
Bonnie: (looked at him) "Yeah, me too."
Antonio found himself involuntarily looking at Bonnie's lips. But he pulled himself together quickly and looked in her eyes.
Antonio: "See you tomorrow?"
Bonnie seemed to have noticed Antonio's looks, smiled, and took position, literally inviting Antonio to make a move. They slowly moved their heads towards each other, and then kissed.
Bonnie: (after the kiss, looked at him naughtily) "See you tomorrow."
Then got out of the car and headed inside her house. Antonio watched her with a smile until she entered, then drove the car back to his house.
Elena: "This can't be happening."
Stefan: "I kinda got used to it."
Elena: "No, I mean June. She just lost her parents, and now she's the target of a group of angels?"
Damon: "She's a strong girl."
Elena: "She's just thirteen years old, Damon. No one at her age should be going through these."
Damon: "I know."
Stefan: "We'll find a way. Stephan already has a plan. Needs a little perfecting, but still.." (Elena smiled) "We'll get you through this. I promise."
Elena nodded, showing him that she believes him. They hug. Then she and Damon nod to each other, saying good night without saying it. Then they leave.
Meredith: "You're welcome."
Then she sat in front of him and looked outside. Christian noticed she was dejected.
Chris:: "It's gonna be alright."
Meredith: "My guts tell me different."
Chris: "Because you're hungry." (Meredith smiled) "You haven't eaten all day."
Meredith: (looked at him) "Ever since Gary found us I knew this day would come. But you just don't prepare yourself to it."
Chris: "I know." (looked at her) "But they don't expect us to ally with vampires. It'll give us an advantage." (reassuringly) "We can win this."
Meredith tried to smile.
Matt: (jokingly) "I was the one who was supposed to leave you."
She smiled and kissed his cheek. He looked at her and they kissed each other.
Sue: "I won't tell my dad."
Matt: (chuckled) "Yea, you'd better not."
Sue: (with a smile) "Why are you so afraid of him?"
Matt: "He's sheriff."
Sue: "No, I mean, really."
Matt: (looked at her) "He told me things I can't ignore."
Sue: "Like what?"
Matt: "Like, umm.. safe sex, and.."
Sue jokingly started hitting Matt's shoulder.
Sue: "You.. ass!"
June: "Come in." (Elena opened the door and walked in. June was in her bed, sitting up, ready to sleep) "I didn't know you needed to be invited in rooms too."
Elena: "What? No, no, I don't. It was a gesture of.. respect." (June weirdly looked at her) ".. to your privacy."
June smiled. Elena's nervousness was totally giving away why she was here.
June: "I'm not new to troubles, Elena. You don't have to worry."
Elena: "But this is different."
June: "The strongest vampire in town will be protecting me. I have no fear of anything."
Elena smiled with relief upon hearing June has this confidence in her. She sat near her.
Elena: "Besides, you can block the powers of whoever comes at you."
June: "That too!"
They laughed. Then Elena got up and kissed her forehead. Then June laid down. Elena put the blanket on her.
Elena: "Good night June."
June: "Good night Elena."
A few seconds later the lights went off. At that time unbeknownst to both of them, a mysterious man was outside, standing creepily and watching the house.
