|It's almost noon. Aiden slowly opens the door of a house and walks inside. After wandering around for a while, he calls for Richard (which indicates this is Richard's house). But there is no response from him. Upon the creepy silence Aiden takes out his gun, and keeps walking in the house, ready for something unexpected. Finally he arrives to the bedroom, but the door is locked. He knocks and yells for a while, then decides to kick it open. But when he gets inside, he meets a horrifying view. Richard, his wife, and his son, all murdered violently, and their blood is all over the place. He gasps with horror, then closes the door and rushes out.
Lockwood door is knocked incessantly. Then Katherine opens the door and sees Aiden. He walks inside quickly.
Aiden: "Where is everyone?"
His hectic attitude apparently bugged Katherine.
Katherine: "What happened?"
Aiden: "I'd like to discuss this with everyone, it's major stuff."
Upon this Katherine calls everyone. In short time the ones in the Lockwood house and Caroline comes, and a little while later Chris and Samara arrive too.
Chris: (after they close the door and get into the living room) "Hey!"
Suddenly all eyes turn to June.
June: "It's okay, this is him."
Katherine: "Okay, spill it. What's up?"
Aiden: "Last week I released Richard."
Tyler: "How could you?"
Samara: "After everything he's done!"
Aiden: "Not the point, but I had to. We had nothing to charge him with!"
Caroline: "Right. Because all the evidences were cured by vampire blood. Awesome!"
Tyler: "So what is he up to?" (Aiden looks with discomfort) "It is what this is all about, right?"
Aiden: "Not quite. He died."
Suddenly everyone gets a weird happiness.
Katherine: "I don't understand how that's supposed to upset me."
June: (smiling) "Or any of us!"
Aiden: "This morning I called him to check him, but there was no answer, so I paid a visit. But when I got into the house, I found him and the entire family murdered violently!"
Chris: "Well that can't be vampires. As far as I'm concerned Richard knows the vampires in town and wouldn't allow any of them in his house."
Samara: "And he can't be compelled to give invitation because he would be drinking vervain."
Aiden: "Yes, but he could be killed outside his house, and once he is dead the house would be open to any vampires because it is his house. Once the vampire got in, they could have made a meal out of the rest of the family."
Caroline: "But.. were there any bite marks on the bodies?"
Samara: "Does it really matter?"
Caroline: "It doesn't?"
Samara: "He gathered the entire council for a move against us. They know that we have a great reason to hate him, and this murder makes us the primary suspects!
June: "Something tells me kitsunes did this to frame us."
Tyler: "I agree."
Chris: "They are doing everything in their power to get rid of vampires."
Aiden: "I think for now we are safe."
Tyler: "How so?"
Aiden: "I got a couple of my men to take the bodies and clean the house. If no one saw it, which I made sure of, the official story is the family went for a vacation until this.. kitsune thing is resolved."
Chris: "So we are in the clear!"
Aiden: "For now. But the fact that he'll never return will eventually raise questions."
Caroline: "What kind of questions?"
Aiden: "The kinds that the council will have biased opinions."
Katherine: "So what should we do?"
Aiden: "I don't know. But we gotta figure out something, because if this thing comes to light, I'm in big trouble."
Samara: "We all are!"
Aiden: "Exactly! So.. what is our move?"
Upon this the happiness is gone, and a deep concern hits the room.
Ulma: "Listen up, people. The second we go out, we have to consider that the kitsune will know exactly where we are. So we have no time to waste. You all know know the plan. Once we go out, everyone will head to Shi no Shi. Bonnie will go out first and start her magic, then she will join us. Damon and Klaus will go to save Stefan, and they will join us at the rendezvous point. Meredith will be our weapon to destroy Shi no Shi, and Bonnie will help us with the magic. Altogether, we will clean the rest and prepare a clean path for Damon and Klaus' return. Any questions?"
Klaus: "Why am I on team Damon?"
Damon: "Because I'm gonna need help to save Stefan, and since he is your old bff, you're the only one who is cut out to."
Klaus: "Well you're out of luck, because I'm only here to save Elena."
Elena: "In that case you're out of luck too, because I'm not going anywhere without Stefan."
Klaus: "Then it's a good thing Damon here will save him and bring him back to you."
Elena: "I'm not anywhere without Damon too, so if he fails, I'm gonna stay here forever."
Elena: (looks at Damon) "That's what you get when you pick Klaus of all people to help you."
Klaus: "Fine. I will save your beloved."
Elena: (to Damon) "When you find him, how will you know it's really Stefan? They could put a decoy in his place."
Damon: "He's my brother Elena. I think I'll know my brother when I see him."
Elena: "Like how you knew in Steven's Quarry?" (Damon looks surprised) "Bonnie told me about that. How Misao turned into him and none of you could tell."
Klaus: "She has a point."
Damon: "Okay, then I will punch him in the face hard enough to make sure." (Upon this Klaus laughs hysterically)
Elena: "You'd really do that to your brother?"
Damon: (scoffs) "Wha?"
Elena: "Forget it, I'm coming with you!"
Elena: "Do you really think I'm gonna let you do that?"
Damon: "I wasn't serious!"
Elena: "Oh I think you were!
Damon: "You will slow us down, Elena!"
Elena: "Then compel me! Because after what you said, that's the only way you can stop me!" (Damon feels cornered, and looks at Elena) "It's not like you haven't done it before, so what's stopping you now, Damon? Compel me!" (Damon looks at her wildly, hoping that it will make her change her mind, but she doesn't) "I'm coming with you."
After a silent moment that felt like hours, Ulma talks to everyone.
Ulma: "We cannot afford these kind of discussions after we go out. So whatever questions you have, you have to ask now."
The crowd remains silent. So Ulma gives the order, and everybody starts going out one by one, but quickly. As planned, Bonnie goes out first and after walking a little away, she starts casting a spell on a compass. Ulma, vampires and Elena go near her, and Hope goes with the rebels. In short time Bonnie completes the spell and tells Damon and Klaus which direction they should go. Upon this Damon asks Klaus if he is ready. Klaus sarcastically replies him with the same question, and starts walking. Damon looks at Ulma and asks if she thinks he made a mistake by taking Klaus with him. Ulma just smiles, and wishes them good luck. Bonnie gives the compass to Damon and explains him how it works, and tells Elena to be careful. Elena says she will. Then they leave. Damon and Elena start going after Klaus, and Bonnie and Ulma walk fast to catch the others.
Misao grins slowly. Apparently she felt them leaving their hideouts. She gets up and goes to check Stefan. He is sleeping. She crosses arms, and keeps looking at him.
Hope comes near Nathan. Meredith is walking a little away from them. After walking quietly for a moment, Hope asks him if he talked to her yet. He replies he didn't. Hope asks why. Nathan replies that she wants to think of him as the one responsible for what's gonna happen to her, and as long as she doesn't change her mind, he can think of no reason to talk to her. Hope feels disturbed about this opinion, and tries to remind him of their feelings for one another. Nathan says he loves her to the end, but she is so different now. So distant and unreachable, and Damon is the only person she talked to in the last week. She seems to have cut him out of her life already. Hope says he has no idea. If she had cut him away, she wouldn't feel so down over his words. But she is feeling desperate. She has almost nothing left to hold on to. What she came here for is apparently only what vampires are capable of, and that makes her feel useless. More and more she thinks of herself as a liability and a risk to everyone, and he has no idea how hard that can be to handle. At a time like this, a person needs no one but the one person they love, and that person for her is him. Nathan sarcastically replies to this as nice words, and he says he'll think about it. But Hope, still serious, advises him not to think much or he may lose her for good.
Damon: (angrily) "What were you thinking? What's with leaving without the compass?"
Klaus: (calmly) "You followed the compass and that's how you found me. I'd say you need it more than I do."
Damon: "You could be lost."
Klaus: (looks at Damon with a funny smile) "Look at you. All worried! Since when do you care about me?"
Damon: "I personally don't care about you, but if you die it means so do I, and my brother, and I'm not okay with that."
Klaus: "Lucky me. Gotta love mother who made me that way."
Elena: "Are you done?"
Upon this Damon and Klaus look at Elena, then each other, and then Elena. Then Damon looks at the compass, and they all start walking where it shows.
Jay: "We should take you to a hospital."
Richard: "There is no time."
Jay: "What do you mean?"
Richard: "The vampires.. They've gone rogue. They wanted payback, wanted to make me pay for what I've done last week."
Jay: "What happened?"
Richard: "One of them grabbed me on my way home. They took me to an alley to kill me. They bit me, but I had vervain, so they started to beat me. It was a miracle that I survived."
Jay: (shocked) "This can't be right."
Richard: (looks at him wildly) "How much longer will you keep protecting them? Your kind is dying, and they declared war! We should give them what they want! You have to reassemble the council!"
Jay looks at him. He is apparently convinced. He takes his phone, and starts to call people.
Aiden: "No, it won't work, we've already discussed that."
Samara: "Well my mind is numb. I can't think anymore."
Caroline: "That's it? We are at a dead end!"
Chris: "Not to be a smart ass, but it took my one second to figure that out."
Caroline: "Save it."
Aiden: "This murder really drove us into a corner."
Tyler: "Then I guess we have only two choices. Leave town, or declare war against the Founder's Council."
Katherine: "A bunch of humans doesn't scare me."
Aiden: "But you know that's not an option, right?"
Tyler: "We're trying to prevent a massacre, Katherine. Not trying to make one."
Caroline: "Last I heard there were 16 founding families."
Aiden: "But Forbes are on our side, and Fell and Lockwood families do not contribute anymore. Also if we consider some of the members were replaced by kitsunes as you claimed earlier.."
Tyler: "Wait a second, are you seriously thinking that?"
Aiden: "Of course I'm not. I'm just thinking loudly."
Caroline: "Well then don't."
Chris: "Guys guys, we're losing focus."
Tyler: "This is clearly not helping."
Aiden: "Alright, give me.." (suddenly his phone rings. He sees that it's mayor) "One sec." (quickly replies) "Jay.. Why?.. You're doing what?!!.. A vampire attack?.. On who?.. No, but that's impossible.. Because I've been talking to them all day, they've been here with me.. Yes, I'm sure of it.. Who is that?.. Jay, what's happening!!?.. Alright, I'm on my way." (ends the call)
Caroline: "What's going on?"
Aiden: "No idea. They're reassembling the council!"
They all freak out.
Caroline: "They're WHAT?!!"
Tyler: "Why are they doing that?"
Aiden: "Apparently there's been a vampire attack."
Katherine: "Vampire attack?"
June: "You mean kitsune attack?"
Tyler: "We're being framed, goddammit!"
Samara: "How can these council people be so blind!"
Tyler: "And biased! All we've done so far is try to help them."
Aiden: "Look, I'm gonna go there and talk to them, try to talk them out of it, see what's going on. Meanwhile you should stay indoors."
Chris: "We'd better hide."
Samara: "Hide where?"
Tyler: "I'm done hiding and running. If they so much as step one foot in this place, they're dead!"
Tyler: "This is my place, and whatever I do here is defense in assault!"
Aiden: "Look, that's not an option, and you know it. Just don't do anything rash until you hear from me, okay?"
Samara: "We'll hold our own. You go and fix this."
Aiden: (inhales deeply) "Okay."
Then he looks at everyone, and quickly goes outside. When he arrives to Jay's house, he is surprised to see the crowd inside. As he wanders around, one of the councilors call him buzzkill, and another calls him "vampire's puppet". Aiden angrily asks where is Jay. They ask what is he going to do with him. Aiden says something's not right and there's definitely something fishy going on here. The councilors tell him to tell that to him. Then they move away, and let Aiden see him. When Aiden sees him, he is utterly bewildered. It is Richard, sitting on the couch and talking to people about the vampire attack he survived. He starts walking towards to him, but before he can arrive, mayor walks in and starts the meeting. Aiden has no choice but to back off.
Meredith goes for a while, then finds a good spot and hides. She looks at Ulma, who signs her all is well. But Nathan suddenly looks disturbed. Meredith stands up, turns to Shi no Shi, and calls her wings of destruction. As her wings appear, Nathan's disturbance intensifies, and suddenly turns to Ulma.
Nathan: "Tell her to stop!" (Ulma looks at him confused. Nathan anxiously insists) "I said tell her to stop!"
Upon this Ulma looks at Meredith, and focuses.
Ulma: (telepathically) "Meredith, stop!"
Meredith quickly looks at her with confusion. Ulma looks at Nathan.
Nathan: "Tell her to come back."
Ulma: (telepathically) "Nathan tells you to come back. He felt something."
Upon this Meredith's wings disappear. She quickly looks at the building, then runs back to them. When she arrives..
Ulma: (to Nathan) "Nathan, what happened? Did you see something?"
Nathan: (looks at Meredith) "Meredith can't destroy the building."
Meredith: (sarcastically) "Actually I can."
Nathan: "Yes, technically you are able to do it, but the amount of energy you have to conjure in order to destroy it will be too much for you to handle."
Meredith looks at him weirdly.
Ulma: "What does that mean?"
Meredith remains silent, but her eyes indicate that she understood.
Nathan: (to reply Ulma) "If Meredith destroys Shi no Shi, she will die."
Ulma is shocked.
Meredith: "Is this how you saw that I was gonna die?" (Nathan looks at him) "Back in rebel base."
Nathan: "I don't know. I can't tell."
Random rebel: "Is this really happening again?"
Max: "What does that supposed to mean?"
Rebel: "Last time we came here we didn't destroy this building for the same reason. But considering the greater good, I'd say one sacrifice is not too much."
Ulma: (angrily) "Mind your own business!"
Rebel: "I'm sorry, but this is getting ridiculous. We are talking about Shi no Shi here, the hideout of kitsune, possibly Inari. And we have a chance to destroy it, destroy Inari! I don't think it's fair to all of us to let it go just so that Nathan can keep his girlfriend!"
Hope: "There is more than that. Meredith is an angel, if she dies unnaturally, her essence would turn her soul into a phantom."
Another rebel: "We destroyed an army, I'm sure we can handle one phantom!"
Bonnie: "Don't say that. When the kitsune army stroke our home town on earth, one kitsune slipped away from our hands and we thought exactly the same. We learned we were wrong for a terrible price."
Rebel: "I'm sorry for what happened, but it sounds like it was your fault because you didn't take the problem seriously.
Ulma: "Meredith is not going to sacrifice herself, so drop it!"
Meredith: "I'll do it."
Meredith: "I'll do it."
Nathan: "No, no no no no! You're not!" (holds her hands) "Meredith, I can't lose you. Not like this."
Meredith: "But he is right, Nathan. Inari is not just threatening you, but us too. My home. She's threatening every dimension, she's a threat to all of us. And now we have a chance to stop her. If I don't do this now, I know one day I'm gonna regret it."
Ulma: "I understand you, I really do. But unless you know for sure that Inari is inside, your act will be not be sacrifice, it will be suicide!"
Meredith: "I guess I'm okay with that."
Meredith: "I'm tired of living under pressure that I might die any second. It wasn't supposed to be like this. I wasn't supposed to know that. But I do now, and it changes everything."
Nathan: "You're right, it changes! And it changed! Meredith, you're not in danger anymore! But you're pursuing a changed future, you're seeking it. Don't you get it, it's not gonna happen!"
Meredith: "Nathan, you're not making this easy."
Nathan: "Because it's not easy! What do you expect me to do? Say goodbye with a goofy smile and give you my best wishes?" (looks into her eyes sadly) "Meredith, you don't know what's gonna happen!"
Meredith: "Maybe not. But what I do know, is that this building is the only thing that stands between us, and freedom."
Meredith: "And another thing you should know about earth, is that there is always a price for everything."
Everyone, even the rebel eager to sacrifice Meredith looks upset by this conversation.
Meredith: (looks at Bonnie) "Tell my brother I'm sorry."
Then she takes her hands from Nathan, and starts walking back to her position. Everyone looks behind her sadly. But suddenly, Nathan's eyes open wide with excitement.
Nathan: (without looking at her) "Bonnie!" (Bonnie quickly looks at Nathan, and he looks at her. Also upon hearing his voice, everyone, including Meredith, looks at Bonnie. Nathan looks excited, as if he know what she is about to say) "Say it!"
Bonnie: (remains silent for a while, then looks at Meredith) "There might be another way."
Upon this everyone gets excited.
Hope: "What is it?"
Bonnie: "The cloaking spell on the rebel base.. If I can harness the energy and turn myself into a cloak, then we could be able to pass near Shi no Shi without being noticed."
Ulma: "It's too risky."
Bonnie: "It's not. All I need to do is go back to base and harness the energy in there."
Max: "I thought witches could not handle channeling that much power."
Bonnie: "Who told... Damon!"
Ulma: "Then if we do it, it means you will die."
Bonnie: "Not necessarily. I just won't be able to do magic, because controlling that much energy will require all my focus."
Hope: "If you do it, that means the rebel base will no longer be a safe place."
Bonnie: "I'm afraid so."
Ulma: "Who cares? We're not returning there anyway."
Hope: "Are you sure about that?"
Ulma: "We've come this far. There is no turning back now."
Max: "What about Damon and Klaus? The spell on their compass, it takes it's power from you. If you cloak yourself with that spell, they could easily get lost. And without them, we don't stand much chance."
Bonnie: "They'll find their way, they're good at it."
Hope: "What if they can't?"
Bonnie: "Then they will have to be quick. Once they are on their way to Shi no Shi, they could find here with or without the compass."
Max: "This is one hell of a risky idea."
Bonnie: "But the only idea, unless we want to deal with Meredith's phantom."
Ulma: "Max, how long would it take to go back to base and come back?"
Max: "If she moves fast and stops for nothing, less than one day."
Hope: "What if Damon and others come back before then?"
Meredith: "I'll sense their presence and bring them here."
Ulma: "Will you be able to? You said at the presence of kitsune your powers get all messed up."
Meredith: "I realized at the lake that I can if I put enough focus.
Bonnie: "I'm gonna need a ride."
Max: "You know how to ride a horse?"
Ulma: (to Max) "Then you should go with her."
Max nods and leaves to get a horse.
Rebel: "Wait, are we really going with her plan?"
Ulma: "Until vampires arrive, we're stuck here anyway."
Rebel: "So we're just gonna wait?"
Ulma: "If Meredith destroys the building, we're gonna have to fight with every remaining kitsune and guardian in this world. I don't know how will that end. But if Bonnie's plan works, we don't have to fight at all. It seems like the best plan."
In short while Max arrives with a horse. Bonnie hops at Max's back, and they quickly go away.
When they arrive, they take out their weapons. Elena asks whispering if they should separate, to cover more ground at once. Damon says she won't be able to defend herself so it's out of question. Klaus suddenly stops, and says this place is empty. Elena says that's impossible. Damon agrees, and says that Bonnie's spell worked like a charm, so Stefan has to be here. Elena says they should check every single building if they have to. Damon suddenly tells Elena to be quiet, and asks Klaus to listen carefully to see if he can hear anything. Upon this Klaus focuses, and listens around. He hears Elena gulping, birds chirping in the forest, leaves shaking with a wind. He focuses a little more, and finally, manages to hear a weak breath. Suddenly he says he found something, and starts walking to a building. Elena and Damon quickly follow him.
When they enter, they walk as quiet as possible. They see rooms at the right and left designed like prison, and Damon and Klaus are checking in them. Elena however, somehow sure that Stefan is not there, keeps walking without checking. Then she arrives to the end, she turns left as she has no other direction to go. But as soon as she turns, she sees Stefan.
Elena: (surprised to see him outside, and perfectly okay) "Stefan?"
Stefan turns to Elena. Damon and Klaus quickly look at Elena too. Then with a quick move, Stefan smacks Elena with his elbow and Elena falls down unconscious. Upon this Damon and Klaus rush with their vampire speed, only to see Misao. They point their guns at her. Misao, surprised to see them, raises her hands as a gesture of surrender.
Misao: (smiles) "Wow, I didn't see that coming."
Damon: "Yeah? Maybe you're not as tough as you think."
Klaus: "Or maybe she started losing her mind reading abilities."
Misao laughs briefly. Damon quickly checks to see if Elena is okay. When he gets a pulse, he stands up and goes near Misao, while pointing his gun at her.
Damon: "Where's Stefan?"
Misao: "Wouldn't you like to know?"
Damon: "Quit messing around. I'll shoot you in the head and rip this place apart to find him if I have to. Spare me my time and tell me where to find him."
Misao looks at both of them. Seeing that Damon is not bluffing at all, she lowers her left hand to her belt. Upon this both Damon and Klaus are alarmed, and they point their guns to Misao more dangerously.
Misao: "Relax, I'm just gonna give you the keys."
Even though the expression on her face is too suspectful, they both watch her carefully as she gets her hand to the back of her waist and takes out a keychain. Misao then sees that Klaus is about to pull the trigger. With a quick move, she throws the key to Damon.
Damon is distracted by this, and raises his hand to catch it. Klaus immediately pulls the trigger, but Misao uses Damon's distraction to hide behind him and dodge the bullet. She quickly strangles Damon. Then before Klaus can do anything else, she throws Damon behind her and runs to Klaus on wall Prince of Persia style. She manages to grab his weapon, and they struggle to take it from each other. Misao pushes Klaus to the wall and makes him hit his back. Then sees that Damon stood up and aimed his weapon. She makes a quick move and throws Klaus from her back, and as soon as she got the weapon, she shoots him before he can. Damon quickly hides to a sill, as Misao keeps coming at him while shooting. He yells Klaus for help. But Misao turns back, and with a quick move she throws a dashing Klaus towards Damon. Using the distraction, Damon rushes to Misao and hits her to the wall, then starts punching her. Though it doesn't take long until Misao overpowers him. After a few punches, Misao grabs his punching hand, hits his head with her head, and slams him to the opposite wall. That is when Klaus hits Misao with his vampire speed. As she rolls away, Klaus helps Damon get up. Misao quickly stands up, but as soon as she does, Elena, who seems to have woken up, hits her with a chair. Stunned by this, Misao reels. Using this moment, Damon makes his move and renders Misao unconscious with an effective punch.
All three start panting after such action. Damon goes near Elena.
Damon: "You okay?"
Elena: (takes her hand to her forehead where Misao hit) "I am now." (indicating hitting Misao made her feel better)
Klaus: "I guess she won't be telling us where Stefan is."
Damon: "Doesn't matter."
He grabs the key that he was about to take from Misao, and they start walking while checking the rooms. Damon suddenly sees Stefan in a room, sleeping
He quickly opens the door. Elena and Klaus quickly come near him. Stefan, upon hearing his cell door is opened, wakes up and stands up. But unlike the three expected, Stefan's reaction was fear.
Stefan: "No, get away from me!"
Elena: "Stefan, what're you doing? It's us!"
Damon: "We came to save you, brother!"
Stefan: "No, that's impossible. This place is protected by a spell, you couldn't have just found it."
Damon: "Apparently our witch was stronger!"
Stefan: (runs to another corner of the cell) "No! I don't believe you! You're not you!"
Stefan: "I'm done with these tricks, show me your real faces!"
Elena: "Oh my god, they've been appearing to him as us! To torture him!"
Damon: "Stefan, why would a kitsune appear to you as Klaus?"
Stefan: "I don't know! No, stay away!"
Elena: "Stefan, it's us!"
Stefan: (grabs Elena and pushes her away) "NO!!!"
Damon rushes to hold Elena before she falls.
Klaus understands what to do, and goes near Stefan and holds him. Despite his struggles to break free, Klaus is able hold him steady with almost no effort. Then he compels him.
Klaus: "Calm down. It's us. Me, Damon and Elena. We came here to save you. You're with friends now."
Upon this Stefan calms down, and looks at Elena and Damon.
Elena: (smiles, as her eyes are tearful with happiness) "Stefan!"
Stefan: "Oh my god, I'm so sorry!"
Elena: (runs to him and hugs him with a great passion and longing) "It's okay!"
Damon: "It's okay, brother! We're here. You're safe."
After a little while, they go out and see that Misao is still laying unconscious. Stefan is surprised.
Stefan: "What is this?"
Damon: "Didn't you hear the whole fight? Guns were fired, we yelled to each other?" (Stefan looks at him. He doesn't make a move or sound, but the way he looks indicates that he didn't hear anything at all) "How long it's been since you last fed?"
Stefan: "A week or so. I don't know."
Elena: "So what are we gonna do with her? If she wakes up she'll come after us."
Damon: "Right. Put a bullet in her head and be done with it."
Klaus quickly takes his gun and aims to Misao.
Stefan: "No, wait!"
Damon: (surprised by this) "What?"
Stefan: "This might be a trap."
They are all shocked at Stefan's behavior.
Damon: "Are you sure you're okay?"
Stefan: "No, listen to me. This place was protected by a big spell. No way Bonnie could have located here."
Elena: "But she did. We saw her."
Stefan: "Then it must be something Misao did. Weaken the protection or whatever. She led you here, and she did for a reason."
Damon: "Hence the trap."
Elena: "So what are we gonna do? We can't wait until she wakes up, we have to move before others arrive."
Damon: (with a freaked out voice) "Guys!"
They all look at him, and see that he is holding the compass.
Elena: "What happened?"
Damon: (shows them the compass) "This thing is going all crazy."
This would indicate that Bonnie has arrived to the rebel base and got the cloaking spell, but of course none of them knows about this.
Klaus: "There is only one explanation. Given the compass draws it's energy from Bonnie.."
Elena: "No! Don't say that!"
Damon: "I'm afraid it's true."
Stefan: "Something happened to Bonnie?"
Damon: (shakes his head, meaning there is no other explanation) "That means we're screwed. We can't find our way to Shi no Shi without it."
Klaus: "No. You can't. But luckily some of us don't need a compass to find their way. I remember where the dial was showing."
Stefan: (indicating mistrust) "So all we have to do is follow you."
Elena: "Again, what're we gonna do about Misao?"
Damon: "Take her with us. As soon as she wakes up, we'll question her and see what she was up to. Then we'll kill her or.. whatever."
Upon this they tie her hands and feet. Damon grabs her and puts her on his back, then they all go out to follow Klaus to their destination.
After he is gone, Richard looks at Aiden.
Richard: "If you have something to say about me, be a man and say it to my face. Talking behind closed doors is for cowards."
Aiden: "Why? Scared I might reveal something?"
Richard: "Reveal what?"
Aiden: (turns to him) "Oh you know what."
Richard: (understands) "Interesting."
Aiden: "That's just the beginning, dear."
Richard: "What else you got?"
Aiden: "Why ask? Can't you read?"
Richard: (smiles briefly) "That's a nice spell on your head."
Aiden: "Yeah. It keeps the sorts of you outta my head."
Richard: "How'd you do it? You a warlock?"
Aiden: (smiles) "I really don't think you'd wanna find out."
Richard: (laughs) "You got me."
Aiden: "Now leave, before I resort to unpleasant methods."
Richard: "As you wish, sheriff. But I suggest you to watch your back now. Because next time I come for you, you won't be able to know it."
Aiden: "I can hardly wait!"
They look at each other wildly for a moment. Then Richard smiles, and slowly walks out of the apartment.
Klaus: "We should be there anytime."
Stefan doesn't say anything, but his face indicates mistrust big time. After they walk a little longer, they finally see Shi no Shi behind the trees. Elena is unpleasantly surprised to see it.
Elena: "Why is that building still up?"
Damon: (looks with discomfort) "Something's wrong."
Klaus: "Ten points to captain obvious."
They stop immediately.
Stefan: "What is happening?"
Damon: "Well theoretically, this building, which should have been destroyed by now, is the only thing that stands between us and our way to Guardian's Gate, which is how we go back to earth."
Damon: "Well you know, given no one seems to know what's behind it."
Stefan: "And how is this any surprise? You can't just expect that a building to be vanished!"
Damon: "Unless you have an angel in the mix."
Stefan: "Meredith! God I completely forgot about her." (Damon nods) "So this building should've been destroyed by now?"
Stefan: (uncomfortably) "Then that means something happened to Meredith?"
Damon: (even more uncomfortably) "Yep."
Elena: "I can't believe this is happening. First Bonnie, now Meredith."
Klaus: "Well at least we knew it was coming."
Elena: "And you've never been one to mourn, have you Klaus?"
Damon: "We've gotta figure out what to do."
Stefan: "What do you think happened to her?"
Elena: "What do you mean?"
Klaus: (understands Stefan's point) "Dead or caught." (they all look at him) "It's okay if she was caught. But if she was killed, it means we'll have to deal with a phantom anytime soon."
Elena: "Oh my god!"
Damon: "And here I thought we were so close."
As the discussion continues indistinctly, Klaus suddenly looks as if he heard something.
Klaus: "Wait!" (listens harder) "Someone's coming."
Klaus: "I'm not intending to find out by standing here."
Damon: (he listens too) "He's right, someone's coming and they're close!"
Upon this they all quickly hide behind trees and bushes and start waiting. After a little while, they see Bonnie walking towards them. Elena is surprised to see her.
Elena: (whispers) "Bonnie?"
Everyone is whispering.
Damon: "I don't think that's really her."
Stefan: "What do you think? Kitsune?"
Klaus: "There's only one way to find out. Any volunteers?"
Elena: (who happens to be next to him) "Why don't you go, you're the strongest."
Klaus: "I would be happy to help, but if I die, then Damon and Stefan die too. However they don't hold such risk."
Elena: "How come I knew you would say that!"
Klaus: "Because great minds think alike."
Even though at first Elena feels disturbed by this statement, in a moment she realizes can't help smiling, despite she tries too hard to stop it.
Suddenly Damon jumps on Bonnie, which kind of alarms everyone. He and Bonnie roll on the ground until he grabs and raises her and holds her against a tree. Bonnie is surprised that her attacker was Damon.
Damon: "Well, if it's not Bonnie.."
Bonnie: "What do you think you're doing? It's me, Bonnie."
Damon: "See, I kinda find it hard to believe. So I'm gonna need you to prove it with a little witchy juju on my head if you don't mind. Knowing the kitsune magic won't work on me, it's the only way we can make sure."
Bonnie: (chuckles uncomfortably) "Here's the thing, I can't do magic right now." (sees that Damon smiles dangerously) "Let me explain!"
Damon: "Don't bother." (shows his fangs and vampire veins) "I was hungry anyway!"
Bonnie starts panting with fear. But before Damon can bite, he is shot with an electric bullet. Due to the intense current passing through his body, Damon starts writhing on the ground in pain. As everyone looks shocked, Max comes out of nowhere, holding the electric bullet gun.
Max: "We use this against guardians. The electric is so strong that they can't use their special abilities after getting shot. I'm sure the effects would be similar on a kitsune. If you have any questions, shoot me and see I'm not lying. But leave Bonnie alone. She's here to help you."
Everyone seems to be convinced. Elena and Stefan quickly bend near Damon. The bullet seems to have ran out of electricity, so Stefan takes the bullet out of Damon.
Bonnie: (looks at Max) "Thank you."
Max nods to him, meaning "you're welcome".
Elena: (gets up and looks at Bonnie) "Bonnie, why can't you do magic?"
Bonnie: "I'll explain."
Elena: "Good, because I'd like to know! Why is Shi no Shi still up, why you can't do magic, why are you here and where are the others! What is going on here!?"
Max: "Look, you have a lot to catch up, and I'll explain everything on the way. But we need to move now."
Damon: (grunts) "Yeah?" (stands up and looks at Max) "I suggest you to reconsider." (then removes the bushes and lets Max see Misao's unconscious body) "'Cause if she wakes up it'll be a lot harder to talk."
Max: (in shock) "Is.. Is this.."
Damon: "Misao. In flesh." (Max looks at Damon with a great shock, clearly unable to believe what he is seeing) "Now, let's catch up."
Bonnie too is shocked that they were able to take down Misao. As a tense silence takes place, they all look at each other.
