Happy Birthday Part I: Guardian's Gate
Sired is the nineteenth episode in Season 5 and 107th overall.
will be written
|The town is literally ground zero. The people hide in their houses and stay away from windows, while the ones outside are tearing the town apart, burning down the houses and destroying everything that comes in their way. A person in one of the houses tries to call the cops, but the line is cut off. It is obvious that the whole town is in the same situation, as the destruction and mayhem continues all night until morning.
June slowly opens her eyes. She realizes that she is not at the last place she was. Then suddenly remembers what happened. Gasps with horror, and straightens up. Suddenly the gang gathers around her. Caroline quickly hugs her.
Caroline: "You scared the hell out of us!"
June: "I'm sorry."
Samara: That was brave though."
Tyler: "And stupid."
Tyler: "You know how we found her. On Klaus' body, trying to protect him. Like he is not indestructible or anything."
June: "I didn't think. I was thinking.. All I could think was if something happened to Klaus.. Damon could die. And Stefan, and maybe Elena too, because she died as a vampire and I don't know how she's coming back." (looks at Tyler) "And you,.." (to Katherine) "and you,.." (to Caroline) "and you,.." (looks away) "and hundreds, maybe even thousands of vampires all around the world could die. So I thought I had to do something."
Katherine looks at her smiling, clearly appreciating her bravery.
Tyler: "You're really brave.
Samara: "And also stupid."
They all cheer up. But they suddenly hear Chris fake-clearing his throat, as he has something to say. So they get serious and look at him.
Chris: "I don't want to interrupt the possibly only fun time we're having here, but I just came from town.."
Samara: "What's it like?"
Samara: "Identify bad."
Chris: "Too bad. Like.., Katrina bad." (looks at Katherine) "No offence."
Katherine: "None taken."
Chris: "Only there was fire instead of water."
June: "They're burning down the town?"
Chris: "The whole town."
Caroline: "They're wiping it off the map."
Tyler: "They're looking for us."
Caroline: "What happens when they find?"
Katherine: "If they find."
Caroline: "Which they will. Tonight is a full moon." (upon this Tyler suddenly freaks out, but Caroline continues talking without noticing it) "So whatever force they have, tonight it's gonna be at it's peak."
Samara: "Yeah, Caroline has a point. I might be able to defend us against one or two, but there's too many of them. I can try so hard but I can barely slow them down."
Katherine: "So what, we're screwed? Is that what you're saying after three months?"
June: "What if we get some help? Caroline's mom is still sheriff, maybe if we can pull the cops on our side.."
Chis: "What cops? Have you seen the town center? It wouldn't have been like that if there was cops, they've abandoned here. Everyone left. A few stayed, but if they have any wits, after what happened last night they would have left by now too. There is no one who can help us. It's us against them!"
Everyone gets incredibly uncomfortable upon this.
Caroline: "Well.. At least we still have until tonight to figure out what to do."
Tyler: (looking out of the window) "We don't have tonight."
Suddenly all eyes turn to him.
Katherine: "What do you mean?"
Tyler: (turns to them) "Tonight's a full moon."
Caroline: "Yeah? And you're a hybrid, you don't have to turn."
Tyler: (after a brief silence) "It's.. a little more complicated than that."
They all look at Tyler, clearly uncomfortable and starting to freak out.
In the dark dimension, it's the morning after Damon and Klaus left to meet Tatia. Hope wakes up to Stefan putting out the fire they started last night. She slowly looks at her leg, and smiles happily when she realizes she can move it. But instead of standing up, she just straightens up and gives her back to a rock. Apparently she doesn't want to force it.
After they are prepared, they sit in the forest, hiding at a place where they can see the rendezvous point.
Nathan: (looks at Meredith) "So.. Ghost, huh?"
Meredith: (smiles) "Yeah. I'm sorry I didn't tell you before. I just.."
Nathan: "No, it's cool. I mean if this is ghost you, then I'm so very eager to meet the real you!"
Meredith: (smiles) "Well, first of all, I have better clothes. Here, it's kinda hard to live up to my style. And I wear make up, which makes me look more beautiful than I am. Also my hair is smooth." (looks at him with love) "You're gonna love it!"
They smile to each other and come closer to kiss. But before they do, they hear Stefan.
Stefan: (jokingly) "Get a room!"
Everyone laughs upon this for a while. Then the laughters stop. Hope looks at a random point.
Hope: "So you guys, it doesn't matter how many times you die, right? You're ghosts, at the end you'll always come back, right?"
Bonnie: "I think so."
Stefan: "Your point being?"
Hope: (gets up and looks at Meredith) "I know I'm.. I probably don't have the right to ask you this, but the last time.. We gave up on destroying Shi no Shi because it would kill Meredith. But now that we know she'll come back anyway.."
Meredith: "No, it doesn't work like that."
Elena: "Angel wings draw it's power from the angel's soul."
Meredith: "Our essence, our life force is the source of the power of our wings."
Stefan: "That's the reason they can't use their wings of destruction more than once."
Meredith: "Yes. And the energy I have to use to destroy.. that building.."
Bonnie: "She may not come back."
Hope: (realizes that it's not an option) "Oh."
Damon: "We've been running for hours, I just need a minute."
Klaus: "Well we have no time to lose, you know. And this trip is not one way. We'll have to return this same way."
Damon: "I think I'm gonna die."
Klaus: "When was the last time you fed?"
Damon: "I don't know, a couple of days. Why?"
Klaus: "Well that's the reason you're exhausted, you need to feed. I think I saw some villagers on our way. Not far, only a few minutes back."
Damon, who apparently liked the idea, slowly looks at where they came from. His veins appear with intense need to feed. But then shakes his head and turns to Klaus.
Damon: "Never mind, we can't lose time." (gets up) "Maybe Tatia would give us some snack."
Klaus: "Assuming she's gonna help us."
Damon: "She will. You're her long lost lover. If she's gonna listen to anyone it's you."
Klaus: (sarcastically) "Is that why you asked me to come with you?"
Damon: "That, and I needed someone who could carry her."
Upon this both smile and continue running with vampire speed.
Caroline: "Would you mind telling that story once more, because I don't think I understand you."
Tyler: "What do you want me to say, Caroline?"
Chris: "When did you find this out?"
Tyler: "Last month."
Caroline: "God this is.."
Tyler: "Look, I'm sorry, but things were complicated."
Katherine: "So you left town, went to Appalachia, forced yourself to turn 100 times to break your sire bond. Then?"
Tyler: "Look, I understands how this sounds."
Caroline: "How it sounds is that you turned back to town without breaking your sire bond!"
Tyler: "It's not that simple. Look, I'm still a werewolf. Being a vampire didn't change that. So my nature forces me to turn every full moon. I turn painless during full moons!"
Samara: "And in order to break the sire bond, the transformation needs to be painless."
Chris: "So you got it all confused."
Tyler: "I'm sorry."
Caroline: "I should have known. You returned right after a full moon."
Katherine: "So what does that mean?"
Tyler: "It means I'm still sired to Klaus."
Upon this everyone gets incredibly uncomfortable.
Then Tyler goes to the roof, followed shortly afterwards by June. She goes to the edge to sit near him.
June: (after a little silence) "You dropped quite a bombshell down there." (when the silence continues) "You okay?"
Tyler: (without looking at her) "If I asked you something, would you give me an honest answer?"
June: (chuckles with confusion) "Why are you asking me?"
Tyler: "Because you're the most straightforward person I've ever known. And when you say something, I trust it's true, and honest."
June: (smiles barely but genuinely happily, realizing the good impression she gave to someone) "What do you wanna ask?"
Tyler: (quickly looks at her) "Do you think I'm endangering them?"
June: "Not more than any of us." (Tyler looks confused) "Truth is, we all have our own faults. I mean, so what if you're still sired to Klaus? I black out when I overuse my powers, spoil every plan depending on me. Chris is still readable by kitsunes. Katherine can bail on us anytime. Caroline is always discussing with Katherine, creating disturbances."
Tyler: (sees her point and smiles) "Samara's family is full of dark witches."
June: (smiles) "Right? We're not perfect. No one is meant to be perfect, Tyler. You didn't ask to be sired. So it's only unfair to accuse you for that."
Tyler: "Yeah, try telling that to Caroline."
June: "She understands you more than you know."
Tyler: "But she was right. I could have killed her."
June: "You could have, but the way I see, you believed in yourself so bad that even with the sire bond, you resisted him." (they look at each other) "It's all up to you, Tyler."
Tyler looks away, apparently found this conversation comforting.
Meanwhile at the lake, the others are trying to waste time, but lay low at the same time. As they all are talking cheerfully, mostly about their plans once they arrive to earth.
Hope: (jokingly) "What about you, Stefan?"
Stefan: "What about me?"
Hope: "Well, you've been around for more than a century and half, so you must have made some connections. Maybe you could help us after all. In our new lives, give us a head start."
Elena: (laughs briefly) "You wish!"
Hope: (doesn't understand why she said that) "What?"
Meredith: "Stefan made a connection with Monterey once. It didn't end well."
Stefan: (raises hand) "Vampire."
Nathan: "Who is Monterey?"
Meredith: (smiles ridiculously) "It's a city."
Nathan: "Forget I said that!"
Elena: "I have family friends in Denver, maybe they can help."
Meredith: "Well I missed my brother so much, so first thing, I'm gonna hug him for like an hour."
Elena: "You're right. I'll have one week, so I'm gonna have to call Jeremy and say goodbye to him too."
Hope: "That's what I don't get, why are you all taking bullshit from him. I thought earth is a place of freedom, that's why we're going there after all."
Stefan: "It is, and there are laws and stuff to protect human rights, but people like Klaus get away with everything."
Elena: "There are no people like Klaus. We made sure of that, remember?"
Hope: (understands that they've done something bad to Klaus) "So is he a bad guy, or he just seeks revenge?"
Bonnie: "A little of both."
Elena: "Mostly the first one though."
Stefan: "Klaus' mind is a bag full of cats, trying to understand him might be.. rough."
Meredith: "He says he's scared of loneliness, and death."
Bonnie: "That's pretty much what everyone is afraid of."
Meredith: (grimaces with annoyance and anger) "Look, Bonnie. I know you and I have to get on well due to this situation, but if you talk to me again, if you so much as say one word to me again, I'm gonna make you very sorry!"
Suddenly everyone get disturbingly silent. Bonnie looks at her, upset and feeling a lump in her throat. Meredith understands that she spoiled the moment with that attitude, so gets up and goes into the forest.
Nathan: (points Meredith) "I'm just gonna.."
Stefan: (nods) "Go."
Elena: (after they're gone) "That was a conversation stopper."
Bonnie: (looks down) "It's all my fault."
Elena: "Don't be so hard on yourself."
Bonnie: (looks at Elena) "So you're not mad at me?"
Elena: "I am mad at you. You were her legal guardian, you of all people should have protected her no matter what. But what's done is done, and I fixed it."
Bonnie: "By sacrificing yourself again."
Elena: "It's the curse of being a doppelganger. There are some stuff you just can't fix. No matter what."
Bonnie: "You say that now?"
Then they smile to each other. Meanwhile in the forest, Nathan just catches up with Meredith.
Nathan: "Meredith!" (Meredith stops, but doesn't turn to him. Seeing she stopped, he stops too) "Look, I get it."
Meredith: "No, you don't!"
Nathan: "Sure I do."
Meredith: (turns to Nathan. He sees that her eyes are full with tear) "Natalie was my friend, Nathan!"
Nathan: "And Scott was mine."
Meredith: "Alright, maybe you get it. I just never considered Bonnie a killer. Maybe that's why it hurt so much."
Meredith: "How do you.."
Before she can finish her sentence, Nathan rushes near her and shuts her mouth with his hand. Meredith immediately stops and looks around without moving an inch (just moving her eyes). Then Nathan slowly lowers his hand, knowing she won't make a sound. Then Meredith turns slowly and sees that there is a guardian walking a little away from them. Luckily he didn't notice them. They look at each other nervously. The guardian stands for a while, then walks away after he is convinced that there is no one there. After he is gone, Nathan says they must be looking for them. Meredith says they have to warn the others. Nathan says is appears there is only this one, which she can destroy right away. Meredith says there might be others. Upon this he nods, and they quickly go back.
Back at Tatia's palace, the man that Damon sent to Tatia comes back, saying she is expecting them in her room. Damon and Klaus look at each other, then they go upstairs. When they get inside, they see Tatia, standing in front of the window, looking outside with numb eyes.
Damon: "Tatia?" (she doesn't move) "You okay?"
Tatia: "Physically, or emotionally?"
Klaus: "Is this about what we saw out there?"
Damon: "What happened?"
Tatia: (smiles uncomfortably) "I helped a friend. And I thought it'd be okay, if no one saw it. And no one saw it. But turns out Misao can read memories of the walls too." (looks at them) "Intense, isn't it?" (understands that they don't understand anything) "She knew that I helped you guys at Shi no Shi. So she came for payback."
Damon: "Oh my god!"
Klaus: "Are you okay?"
Klaus: "Did she hurt you?"
Tatia: (looks back outside) "It doesn't matter."
Damon: "You feel regret for helping us."
Tatia: (blinks slowly) "My men thought she wanted to kill me. Some died trying to protect me." (looks at Damon) "I feel grief for them."
Klaus: "I'm sorry."
Tatia: (looks at both of them for a while) "Why are you here?" (sees that the two are surprised) "You didn't come here to give your condolences. What do you want?"
Damon and Klaus look at each other, until Damon shakes his head, signing him to tell her.
Klaus: (turns to Tatia) "We need to talk."
Nathan and Meredith come near Hope and others running.
Meredith: "There are guardians!"
Suddenly everyone gets alarmed and they all get up.
Nathan: "They're searching the woods now, but it shouldn't take long until they arrive here."
Hope: "Electric guns! We need them against guardians."
Stefan: "Where are they?"
Hope: "Back at the lake. Max has one."
Meredith: "We can't go there, it's too risky."
Hope: "But Stefan can. He has vampire speed."
Elena: "He's not strong enough."
Hope: "Damon was able to take down a guardian, so can Stefan."
Nathan: "No, Elena's right. If they see us, it's over. We have to stick together."
Meredith: "They can't take us all at once."
Hope: "Maybe they can. We don't know how many of them are there."
Nathan: "All the more reason we shouldn't try. We hide, we wait, we catch them off guard. That's our only chance."
Elena: "As far as they're concerned ogres killed all of us. These guardians are just making sure.."
Stefan: (interrupts) "..looking for the doppelganger!" (they all look at him) "Dead or alive, it doesn't matter. Elena is supernatural, Inari can bring her back."
They all realize he is right.
Nathan: "We can't stay here."
Hope: "Where are we gonna go?"
Nathan: "Where we're supposed to. To the Guardian's Gate."
Elena: "What? No! We should wait for Damon and Klaus."
Nathan: "When they come and don't find us, Guardian's Gate is where they're gonna go too. We can still meet there."
Stefan: "That's a valid point."
Hope: "Yeah, I agree."
Upon this they prepare quickly and start walking.
Tatia: "So let me get this straight. Your rebel army is exterminated, so you need a new one."
Damon: "Humans are helpless in this fight. We need someone who can hold their own. And help us out too. Someone with unusual abilities. Someone supernatural."
Tatia: (understands, uncomfortably) "You need me."
Klaus: "Look, I know it's a lot to ask, b.."
Tatia: (laughs nervously) "A lot to ask? That's an understatement, love." (looks at Damon) "And no. I won't help you?"
This surprises both Damon and Klaus in an unpleasant way.
Klaus: "You won't?"
Damon: "Because of Misao?"
Tatia: "Misao has nothing to do with this."
Damon: "Then what?"
Tatia: (after a moment of silence, speaks to Klaus) "I've spent a thousand years in this place. I was alone, I was weak. I could only bear it because I knew you were okay. And then I hear you killed your mother. Then problems start. Your father, your siblings. And after a thousand years I meet Damon, who tells me that you are the most terrible person he has ever seen. I don't believe him. I deny. But then I see it with my own eyes. A man who drags dozens of people to death for his gain. A terrible person."
Klaus: (heartbroken) "Tatia!"
Tatia: "And then I think, what could have happened. What could have changed that kind and gentle man I loved, into that monster that everyone despises. And I could only think that it was always who you were, or that you're lost." (Klaus looks down, and Damon is touched) "So I came to realize, you lack someone who loves you. You lack me. And that's why I'm not gonna help you." (Klaus looks at her) "What's gonna happen when you go to earth? Did you ever think? Well I did. You will continue being that man everyone hates. You will build that hybrid army that you will force them to be loyal to you. And to the day that you die, you will never know the taste of love. The touch, a kiss. But here, it can be different. Start fresh with the woman you love. Or once loved." (chuckles) "I have my resources, people respect me. There's gonna be an army at your disposal. I'm the queen! Be my king! I can give you more than anyone else can!" (holds his hands) "I still love you, Nik! And I don't want you to go!"
Klaus looks incredibly confused.
Tyler: "This is not good. I'm losing it."
June: "You have to fight it, Tyler!"
Caroline: "I don't understand, it wasn't like this before."
Chris: "His vampire side must have heightened his anger, aggression and everything violent inside the wolf."
Katherine: "Well this can't go on like this all night. If we're caught off guard for one moment Tyler could be very dangerous for us."
Upon this they remain silent for a while. Apparently they agree with Katherine. Samara slowly looks at the full moon.
Samara: "God, I'm gonna hate full moons."
Caroline: (suddenly turns to June) "What about June? You can block Tyler's werewolf side!"
Samara: "That's a brilliant idea!"
June: "Except it won't work."
Katherine: "What do you mean it won't work?"
June: "Wolf trait is genetic, I can't block that. All I can do is to put him in psychic barriers, but I can only do it for so long."
Tyler: "She's right. June cannot overuse her powers, she could black out. Things could be even more dangerous then."
Caroline: "So June's barriers should be our last option."
Katherine: "I'm okay with that, as long as we have a first option."
Chris: "I have an idea. But it's a little crazy."
Tyler: "What is it?"
Chris: "As far as I can tell, nature doesn't appreciate being a vampire. So in order to please the nature, you have to ignore that side of yours."
Suddenly a deathly silence hits the room.
Samara: "Do you realize what you're asking!?"
Katherine: "If you have a death wish, fine, but I can't deal with that. I like living!"
Caroline: "Do you mind explaining what's going on?"
June: (looks at Caroline) "He has to turn."
Caroline: (shocked) "To a wolf? No!"
Samara: "When you said crazy, I thought you would ask me to become one with the full moon and block it's energy or something!"
Caroline: (surprised) "Can you do that?"
Samara: "Theoretically, if I have a death wish."
Chris: "But this is the only way for him to survive tonight. That or we have to put him down."
Tyler: "Then put me down, I can't transform into a wolf!"
Chris: "What's the big deal, I thought you learned to control it."
Tyler: "On a normal day I can, but if I turn under full moon, I become a mindless beast!"
Caroline: "Then he would attack us with full power! In his wolf form he will be stronger than Katherine, and he will hunt us down one by one!"
Chris: "Then we will run. This way all of us under one roof, we're in greater danger."
Samara: (after thinking about it) "Well.. When you put it that way, it actually makes some sense!"
Caroline: "Are you all out of your minds, he can't do this!"
Tyler: "They're right, Caroline. It's the only way." (looks at Chris and then everyone) "I'll go into the woods and turn after five minutes. You'd better not be here when I do!"
They nod slowly and anxiously. Then Tyler runs outside.
Klaus: "So you're forcing me to stay here."
Tatia: (looks angrily) "Maybe I didn't make myself clear."
Klaus: "No, you made it perfectly clear."
Damon: "Tatia, what you're doing is wrong."
Tatia: "Funny this comes from a vampire who spent decades killing and mauling innocent people!"
Klaus: "Is that what you think about me?"
Tatia: (gets upset) "I didn't mean to!"
Klaus: (looks at Damon) "Let's get out of here."
Tatia: "No!" (cries, and runs in front of them) "Please, don't. I don't want to wait another thousand years to see you."
Damon: "Then come with us."
Tatia: "I can't. My deal with Esther was clear. No matter what happens, my return to earth would kill Nik and every other vampire."
Klaus: "What're you talking about?"
Tatia: "My blood created vampires. And my death would kill them."
Damon: (confused) "But you are dead."
Tatia: "The Earth doesn't know that. But if I go back.. That's why I can't leave here." (looks at them) "I'm all alone."
Klaus: "But I don't want to be here."
Tatia: "Maybe you'll like it in time."
Tatia: "Please, Nik, I beg you. Please don't go!"
Klaus: "I will never like this uncivilized place and it's uncivilized people! I only came here for Elena. And now that I have her, I have no intention to stay here. So if you won't help us, then get out of our way!"
Damon: (apparently disturbed by his attitude) "Klaus!"
Tatia: "Wow. You almost convinced me."
Klaus: "I will never love you, you manipulative bitch!"
Tatia: (looks into his eyes) "Those are tears I'm seeing, right? You're crying inside, because you hate what you're saying! You hate the man you've become, you hate that you hurt people, you hate that you're alone, you hate that you'll never be happy, and you hate that I'm right!"
Tatia: "You need to be saved, Nik! And I'm gonna be that person. I will do that for you."
Damon: "But at what cost?"
Tatia: "What do you mean?"
Damon: "You came to this place with your own free will, Tatia. You knew what you were walking into. But now you're forcing him to stay with you. Even if he does stay, you will never know if this is really what he wanted. And that question will kill you all the time."
Tatia: "So what're you saying? I should let the man I love go? That's not gonna happen!"
Damon: "If you truly love him, you should put his needs before yours. His wishes. Maybe it hurts." (suddenly he starts flashing back to the moment where Stefan had to choose between saving Matt and Elena the night that she became a vampire) "But if you act with your selfish desires, the person you love will not just hate you, but also they'll hate themselves forever. That's why you have to honor their wishes, and be selfless." (flashes back to where Elena points Matt to Stefan, telling him to save him first) "It hurts too damn much.." (flashes back to the moment Elena dies, and sees Stefan in the hospital, sitting miserably) "..but it's the only way they can find peace."
Klaus realizes what Damon really is talking about, and can't help feeling sorry. Tatia doesn't know the deal, but she too looks really unhappy.
Tatia: "I don't understand why it's supposed to hurt. Isn't it bad if it hurts?"
Damon: "Sometimes. But even in your sadness, you can find comfort in knowing that you made the person you love happy." (looks at her) "And that is much better than knowing they will never be truly happy. That's a sacrifice you have to make for the person you love."
Tatia looks down, then looks around with an obvious inner struggle. Then looks at them.
Tatia: (her voice gives away that she is deeply heartbroken) "Okay. I'll do it."
Everyone is scattered in the forest. Chris is running with June. Caroline jumps to a high branch of a tree, hoping the wolf can't climb that high. But suddenly she feels trapped, as if he manages, she has nowhere to run. She inhales deeply, trying to control her fear. Meanwhile Katherine is walking slowly in the woods, ready to flee with the smallest noise. Samara hides behind some bushes, clearly aware that it won't be any good if Tyler finds her.
Wolf growls and sniffs for a moment, then rushes outside. From some other place, Chris says he's feeling the wolf coming closer. June freaks out. They start running to a tree. Chris quickly helps June climb up, but he is too late. Before he can climb too, the wolf arrives and bites his leg. Chris yells with an incredible pain, but the wolf only bites harder. Chris tries to kick the wolf, but the wolf is too strong. He finally cannot hold the branch any longer and wolf pulls him down. June yells with despair, in an effort to reach out to Tyler, but it's useless. Chris tries too hard to get rid of the wolf, but it is too strong, and keeps scratching and biting him. His face is covered with scars in no time, and he loses great strength. Wolf bites his shoulder and starts dragging him. But suddenly something incredibly fast arrives and kicks Tyler away. Then June sees that it was Katherine. She lifts Chris so that June can pull him up. Meanwhile the wolf gets up and runs to Katherine. Katherine freaks out, but suddenly wolf hits an invisible wall, which stuns him for a moment. Katherine looks at June, who tells her to run. As she does so, wolf starts chasing her. Katherine is using her top speed, but wolf is still faster than her and catches up in no time. Suddenly Katherine makes a hard turn, which wolf didn't expect. However, he manages to scratch her arm with his pawn, which freaks her. But she continues running. After running for a while, she stumbles on a rock and falls down. She turns to the wolf without getting up, and sees that he got dangerously close. Wolf jumps on her, but she kicks him with both her feet. Then gets up and turns to wolf. Wolf gets up too and makes another dash attack. This time Katherine dodges it, and punches him in the chest as hard as she can. Wolf whimpers, but gets back up in no time. Upon this Katherine sees that this fight has no end, and starts running once again. Wolf runs after her, and starts catching up again. But this time to her surprise Caroline comes to her rescue. She jumps down from her tree on Tyler. They roll for a while until Caroline pushes him and gets up. Wolf attacks Caroline, but she dodges. But when she turns to the wolf, she sees that he made another attack. She is startled and cannot move. But this time Katherine comes to her rescue, and grabs the wolf from his tail and starts spinning around, then throws him to a tree. They heave a sigh of relief, thinking they took him down, but the wolf gets back up and growls angrily. Katherine and Caroline look at each other with fear, then run to opposite directions. Wolf looks at both direction for a while, then runs after Caroline. He catches her in no time, and jumps on her. She cannot dodge in time, and they both fall down together. Caroline manages to grab the wolf from his neck, which prevents him from biting her. But the wolf is too strong, and Caroline is clearly having a hard time. She desperately yells Tyler's name, and tries to tell him to stop. But the wolf won't hear. She cries, as she is aware that she can't hold the wolf any longer.
Tatia comes downstairs with Damon and Klaus behind her. Then calls one of her men, and tells him that he is in charge until she comes back. The man nods. Tatia looks at Damon and Klaus, and tells them that they can go now. Another one of her men ask her where she is going. Tatia says it's a mission she has to go on alone. Upon this he asks her to let him come along. Tatia says wherever she is going, she doesn't expect to come back. This is a one way mission. Upon hearing this, the men in the hall get silent, as they are all upset to hear this. Then another man says he wants to come too. Tatia says it's too risky, and she can't risk anyone. One of the two volunteers says it's their duty to make sure their queen will be alright. Tatia says she is not going as queen, this is personal. That's why she can't use her soldiers. But the two volunteers insist that they are her soldiers to the end. Even if she doesn't take them with her, they will still go after her. Tatia smiles, and looks at Damon and Klaus to see what they think. Damon says they were hoping to carry her with vampire speed, them coming along would make it impossible. Tatia says then they will get a coach. Her horses are really fast and strong, and it will only take a little longer. Damon scoffs, and says this is a very very bad idea. But apparently agrees, as running all that way again on foot looks too exhausting.
Caroline's strength is starting to break, as her arms cannot keep the wolf away any longer. Just as she prepared herself for the bite, suddenly the wolf flies away. Caroline looks without getting up, and sees that Samara pushed him away with her powers. The wolf quickly gets up and attacks again, but this time he hits an invisible wall. Caroline looks again and sees June running to them from a different direction. Chris is right behind him. Wolf hits June's barriers as fast and strong as he can, hoping to break free. Then Katherine arrives. Caroline sees that June is in bad shape, as containing the wolf is taking a lot of strength. She says that June can't hold him forever, they have to do something. Wolf hits the barriers once more, and June screams with pain. Wolf suddenly stops and looks at June. He quickly flashes back to the morning, where she and he were talking at the roof and she said she would black out if she overuses her powers. Remembering that, wolf attacks to the barriers even stronger, in an effort to exhaust her and get free. June holds her head, and yells with pain that she is losing it. Chris says they have to do something. Katherine quickly rushes to a tree and breaks a branch. Caroline looks at her and the branch, and says it won't kill him. Katherine says then she will try ripping him in half and see if that works. Samara say they don't want to kill him, but Katherine say he wants to kill them. Samara says they have to do something, ease his anger with something. Caroline suddenly looks at Chris, and tells him to use his wings of redemption. Samara asks wings of what. Caroline talks to Chris, and says she knows angels have wings of redemption. Chris says they do, but Tyler does not seek redemption, he is just angry. Caroline says redemption eases the inner pain, and now Tyler has a storm inside. So there is a chance it might work. Suddenly they startle with June's another painful scream. Upon this Caroline yells Chris that it won't hurt to try. Everyone seems to agree. Upon this Chris takes a deep breath, and calls his wings of redemption.
June suddenly cannot stand any longer and her barriers are lowered, which frees the wolf. He quickly attacks June, but stops right near her as soon as Chris starts waving his wings. Wolf looks at Chris with confusion, and growls, but doesn't move. Everyone is on edge, and watches things curiously. Samara whispers, saying she thinks it's working. Chris says he agrees. June slowly opens her eyes, and sees that the wolf is standing right near her. She freaks for a moment, but than realizes he's not attacking. She slowly takes her hand to his head, intending to pat him. Wolf growls a couple of times, but eventually lets June touch him. As soon as she touches him, she smiles, and says good dog. Wolf looks at others, then slowly turns back into Tyler.
Caroline brings him a blanket, and altogether they head back to the witch house where Tyler has his clothes. After he gets dressed and comes near the gang, they all say he scared the hell out of them. Tyler tries to smile and says he is sorry. They smile back and say it's okay. They're just happy that no one got hurt. Chris tells them to speak for themselves, and tells Tyler if he ever turns into a wolf again when he is around he's going to use his other wings (meaning wings of destruction). Tyler smiles and says it won't happen again. June goes ahead and hugs him, which apparently everyone liked. Tyler then sees Katherine going to the roof. June looks at Tyler, knowing that he wants to go after her, tells her to do so. Tyler smiles to her, then goes upstairs after Katherine.
Samara: (after he is gone) "That was some night."
Caroline: "Imagine I went through that every month before he became a hybrid."
Chris: (curiously) "Who did he kill?"
Caroline: "A girl who had a crush on him."
Samara: (jokingly) "Why, was she too annoying?"
Caroline: (smiles) "Katherine made him."
Chris: "So that's why you don't like her."
Caroline: "That, and several dozens of other reasons." (sees they they want to hear some of those reasons) "Ain't nobody got time for that." (upon this they smile. Then Caroline looks at a random point) "But she saved my life tonight."
Chris: "Mine first."
They all smile.
When Tyler gets to the roof, he sees that Katherine is sitting on the edge. He goes near her and sits. Judging by the sky it's around 4-5 a.m.
Katherine: (not intending to accuse) "You came this close to killing me."
Tyler: "I'm sorry."
Katherine: "From this day on, I officially forbid you from becoming a wolf if we are on the same continent!"
Tyler: (smiles) "Square deal."
Katherine: (remains silent for a while, and looks at the horizon) "I guess now you and I have the same fate." (realizes that Tyler doesn't understand) "We both have to run when Klaus returns." (Tyler looks at her weirdly) "Don't make anything out of it, I'm just saying."
Katherine: "I told you, I don't have feelings for you."
Tyler: "I don't believe you."
Tyler: "No." (Katherine looks at him) "I can tell. I'm not just anyone for you. I know you have feelings for me."
Katherine: "Hatred, despise.."
Tyler: "Tell that to yourself. But I see how you're looking at me."
Katherine doesn't know how to reply this, so she looks somewhere else. But seeing that Tyler came closer to her, she is compelled to look at him again. Then she sees that Tyler is moving his head closer to hers, intending to kiss. She doesn't do anything at first, but just as he is about to kiss, she makes a small move and takes her head a little back. Tyler sees that she's not ready, so he moves back slowly. Then they sit side by side, and watch the sunrise together.
