Pure Spirits of the Forest
The Angel is the sixth episode in Season 4 and 72nd overall.
After June reveals what she is, she is immediately introduced to the gang. Upon finding out about other supernaturals out there, June starts to feel like home and befriends them. Damon tries to get a date from an unwilling Meredith, and Stefan expresses discomfort about his new goal. Caroline and Antonio decide to go to grill for the night, and they find themselves getting closer to each other. June convinces Elena to talk to Stefan if she wants him back. Finally, the night at Mystic Grill takes an unexpected turn, and Damon makes an interesting discovery.
|The Gilbert's door opened and Stefan and Damon entered. Upon hearing the door Elena headed there, and as soon as she saw Stefan, she got part happily part confusedly surprised. Damon smiled to her, and it distracted her enough to welcome them.
Elena: "Thanks for coming."
Damon: "You call, I come. Easy like that, remember?"
Elena: (smiled) "Yea, I remember." (looked at Stefan) "You're here!"
Stefan: (smiled) "I'm here."
Elena: "Nice to see your face.. finally!"
Stefan: "I've.. I've been kinda busy."
Elena: "I know. Busy with avoiding me!"
Stefan looked down while continuing smiling. Eventually they entered the living room. June was at one side, and everyone was faced to her, sitting. Matt, Bonnie, Caroline, and now Stefan and Damon were there. After they all sat, Elena looked at June.
Elena: "Well, June. This is all we are." (went near Bonnie) "This is my best friend Bonnie, who is also a witch."
Bonnie: (while smiling) "Hi!" (June smiles back to her)
Elena: "She was the one who found you last night. Pretty powerful witch she is."
Bonnie: "Not that powerful."
Elena: "She's just being modest."
Elena: "I'm just saying. When she's dark, party!"
Caroline: (jokingly) "Yeah, with shards and aneurysms everywhere."
Bonnie: "How many times do I have to apologize?"
Caroline: "Once more with feeling!"
Bonnie: "You get off on it, don't you!"
Caroline raised her eyebrows in a "I'm joking" manner. Bonnie saw it and smiled, then turned back to June.
Elena: (after an awkward silence) "Ookay.." (went near Matt) "My other best friend Matt, who is also.."
June: "I thought you said he was your ex."
Eyes turned to Elena, and she suddenly felt confused and didn't know what to say.
Elena: "Well, that too, but.."
Matt: "We're not like that anymore."
Elena: "Totally!" (to Matt) "Thanks!" (to June) "And aside from being my best friend and my ex, he is also a medium."
Matt: "I can see ghosts."
Caroline: "Like Patrick Swayze."
Damon: "That was Whoopi."
Caroline: (looked like realizing her mistake) "Right!"
June looked fascinated.
Elena: "And the rest of us; Damon, Stefan, and my other best friend Caroline; are vampires."
June: "But you're good, right? Like Elena."
They looked at Elena weirdly.
Elena: "I gave her a good impression."
Stefan: "Yeah we're good."
Damon: (looked directly at June) "And you must be the psychic."
June: "I am."
Matt: "So, what's a psychic, I mean, what can you guys do?"
June: (took a look at all of them in silence for a while) "I can read minds."
Damon: "Really?" (June looked at him) "What am I thinking?"
June: "That I'm making up."
Everybody in the room is humored by this and they start grinning and laughing.
Elena: "You had that coming!"
Damon and June were smiling too.
Damon: "Remind me to never tease a psychic again!"
June: "No, actually it doesn't work that way. I have to touch the person to read their minds."
Elena: "Touch, you mean?"
June: "A physical contact to their arm, head.. Any part of their body."
Elena: "That's why you wanted to touch my hand last night?"
June: (nodded) "It was the only way to see if I could really trust you. As long as I make physical contact, I can learn whatever I want to learn about the person. Their thoughts, emotions, ambitions, memories, even the ones that the person forgot. I can have access to all of them."
Damon: "Well, we don't have any mind reading, but we do have mind compulsion that can make people tell us whatever we want to know."
Suddenly turned to Matt and tried to compel him. Matt was looking at him weirdly.
Matt: "What are you doing?"
Damon: (confused) "Are you on vervain!?"
June: "No. I'm blocking your power!"
Upon this everybody in the room look at June curiously.
Stefan: (surprised) "You can do that?"
June: "As long as my mind is compatible with the power, I can block anything." (looked at Bonnie) "Casting spells.." (looked at Matt) ".., seeing ghosts.." (looked at Damon) ".., mind compulsion.." (looked at all of them) ".., anything."
Everyone in the room looked at each other. They were rather nervous.
Bonnie: "She is extraordinary!"
Caroline: "So what're you planning to do?"
Elena: "I haven't given much thought really. I mean, I didn't have time to between freaking out about sheriff's threats and freaking out about her escape and everything.. But I think as her legal guardian, I suppose I should sign her to school first thing on Monday, and then.."
Caroline: "I didn't ask that, Elena. You sent Jeremy away because you were afraid you could hurt him. But now you decide to take the responsibility of a thirteen year old?"
Elena: "It wasn't much of a decision."
Caroline: "You know what I mean."
Elena looked down.
Elena: "I did think about it. Actually been thinking about it since I have June in my life. Am I ready for this? I don't know. But June's a psychic, which is good, because if I ever lose control, she could block my vampire side and I would come back to my senses. Not that I need it, because I learned to strain myself, but you can never be too ready.." (Caroline and Bonnie were looking at her sadly, as they were totally understanding her struggles) "But I guess it's time I grow up and be responsible one. I miss Jeremy, yeah. But.. I shouldn't let that cloud my judgement. I mean, I miss him so much, but he must have put his life in order by now. And I think I don't have any right to mess with that, keep calling him, sending him back. He deserves a life without vampires and.. I mean, that's why I sent him to Denver, right? So I think he should.. he should just stay there."
Caroline: (sadly) "I hear you."
Elena: "Maybe one day I'll see him. When he's married to a nice girl and expecting his first child." (Caroline and Bonnie smiled and even laughed briefly upon this) "But all I'd bring to him is pain, that's why I can never be a part of his life again."
Caroline and Bonnie looked at each other. They were clearly sad for her. Because both knew that it took a lot from Elena to make this decision.
Bonnie: "Maybe it's for the best."
Elena: "It is. I just.. I just hate life because if has to suck this much."
Caroline smiled with pity.
Damon: "Damon Salvatore, how may I be of service?"
Meredith: (she was at the hospital, about to enter her office) "Interesting you mention that. I'm fresh out of blood, and I need more. We need to meet."
Damon: "Great. Give me time and place."
Meredith: "You know this is not a date, do you?"
Damon: "They always say that."
Meredith: "And then what, wake up in your bed in the morning wondering how they got there in the first place?"
Damon: (sat with a face looking like "how the hell did she know that") "More or less."
Meredith: "You're not planning on compelling me to sleep with you, do you?"
Damon: "Do you really think that low of me?"
Meredith: "Do I have to answer this?"
Damon: "Probably not." (Stefan heard her chuckle and smiled naughtily) "Besides, I don't need to compel you."
Damon: "Sure. Because I know you find me attractive." (Meredith raised her eyebrows, indicating she can't believe what she just heard) "Otherwise why else you'd be avoiding me."
Meredith: "Avoi.. You know I'm one of the most wanted doctor of this hospital, right? Highest success rate and everything."
Damon: "And who do you have to thank for that?"
Meredith: "So not gonna answer that."
Damon: "And here's with the avoiding again. Counter deal: tonight's a date. Or you can kiss goodbye to vampire blood, and to your position at the hospital."
Damon: "What can I say, I am diabolical!"
Meredith: (smiled, while being aware that she has no way out) "Fine, have it your way. Seven o'clock at the grill. Don't be late."
Damon: (smiled with the happiness of victory) "I won't."
After Damon ended the call, Stefan came and sat to the other armchair.
Stefan: "You know, Alaric will haunt you forever for this."
Damon: "He's dead, Stefan. He's fine."
Stefan: "How do you know?"
Damon: "'I asked him."
Stefan: "You asked him?"
Damon: "Sure. What, you don't believe me?" (Stefan looked at him, saying "how can I?". Upon this Damon turned his head and spoke to the emptiness) "Hey Alaric, give me a sign if you're not okay with me hitting on Meredith." (Stefan smiled with disbelief. They both listened to the house for a couple of seconds in silence. And of course, nothing happened, or no sound came. Damon looked at Stefan) "See? He's fine."
Stefan: "I couldn't have imagined anything else."
Damon: "Believe me Stefan, when you share such a strong bond with someone, words become irrelevant."
Stefan: "If only you realized that before you had hots for Meredith."
Damon: "A man has his needs, Stefan. So does a woman. Besides, I'm not gonna compel her. Takes the fun out of it."
Stefan: "And you're definitely a man of your word."
Damon: "Of course I am." (stood up and headed to his room) "Say hi to Elena for me. Well, you know, if you're planning on seeing her in the next couple of centuries."
As he left, Stefan remained speechless.
Sam: "Do you have a watch?"
Sam: "Or a clock. A computer, a cell phone. Anything that shows what time is it!"
Matt: "Boss, I'm barely two minutes late. Besides, it's Saturday! No one wakes up this early."
Sam: "That is not the point."
Suddenly a girl's voice came from behind Sam.
Sue: "Sam, come on." (they looked and saw Sue coming near them) "Don't be so hard on him. He had his share last night."
Matt smiled naughtily. Clearly Sue indicated their night together, but Sam thought it was about the match. Before Sam looked at him, Matt erased the smile from his face.
Sam: (sarcastically) "I heard you won. Congrats!"
Sue: "You know my father is the sheriff."
Sam: (looked at her) "And?"
Sue: "You upset my boyfriend, you upset me. You upset me, you upset my dad. You don't wanna upset my dad, do you?"
Sam: (turned to her) "Are you blackmailing me?" (Sue made a face saying "however you interpret". Sam scoffed and looked at Matt. Then looked at Sue again) "Tell your boyfriend to be at bar in five."
Then he left the room. After he's gone, Sue and Matt looked at each other with a naughty smile.
Sue: "And that's how you get things done."
Matt: "Not everyone's father is sheriff."
They came to a kissing distance.
Sue: "Then I guess that makes you very lucky."
Matt: (smiled) "I am lucky!" (they started kissing. Both almost didn't want to stop, but Matt eventually stepped back) "I have to get inside."
They quickly kissed once more, then Matt got back in happily. Sue stayed there for a while with a smile, then she went out using the back door.
Bonnie: "What're you doing here?"
June: "My all life I thought I was weird. Because of.. Now here, everything is different."
Bonnie: (understood) "You thought you were alone." (June didn't nod, but her looks confirmed her. Upon this Bonnie sat to another chair) "I'm sorry about your parents."
Bonnie: "Did they tell you what happened?"
June: "They just said a car hit them when they were crossing the street. They asked me if I had anyone I could stay with. I didn't. I had to stay at the police station for two days. Then they sent me here."
Bonnie: "I also lost my mom. She became a vampire and.. Then she just couldn't stay." (June looked at her) "You seem to be taking these stuff pretty well. You're way better than I was."
June: "I'm not good at all."
Bonnie: (while trying not to sound uninterested in her pain) "Were you familiar with anything.. supernatural, before you came here?"
June: (shook her head, meaning "no") "Mom once said she heard there are witches out there, but she didn't see one."
Bonnie: "So how long have you known you're psychic?"
June: "My whole life. It's not like you can keep something like this a secret. You touch someone and read their thought, it's scary. But mom taught me how to control my powers. She told me I had to keep this a secret because no one would understand."
Bonnie: (smiled reassuringly) "But not anymore. You're not alone, June."
June smiled barely upon this.
June: "So how long have you known you're a witch?"
Bonnie: "I discovered it pretty late. In sophomore year, when I accidentally touched a vampire. It sort of triggered my powers. Then grams taught me how to control them."
June: "How many people know about you?"
Bonnie: "Not many. We also keep our powers a secret. It's just close friends. Not even family."
June: "Your father doesn't know you're a witch?"
Bonnie: "Did yours know?"
June: "Well.. Yeah."
Bonnie: "Well in my experience, people who get involved with supernatural stuff end up getting hurt."
June: "How come?"
Bonnie: "It's just the way things turn out. When you have power to do something, you want to do it. But then there is always a price. My grams died casting a spell. Caroline turned into a vampire for some crazy ritual. Matt started to see ghosts. It's just better for everyone when things are kept secret."
June: "But that means you have to lie everyday."
Bonnie: "Better than them getting hurt."
June understood. They looked at each other for a while.
Caroline heard and looked at the person in the car. She recognized Antonio and went near him.
Antonio: "Where are you going?"
Caroline: "Uh.. Grill."
Antonio: "Me too! After last night I decided to take your advice." (Caroline laughed briefly) "Listen, if you need a ride I can take you there."
Caroline: "Actually I was planning to take my own car but.."
Antonio: "Come on, you'll make me company!"
Caroline: "That was my but."
Antonio smiled and opened the lock. Caroline opened the door and sat near him. He started driving.
Antonio: "It's a coincidence we met."
Caroline: "Yeah." (looked naughtily) "Unless it wasn't!"
Antonio: (his brief silence was meaningful) "It is. I promise."
Caroline: (looked outside for a moment) "So how do you like Mystic Falls so far."
Antonio: "It's a great town. People are nice, welcoming. They trust each other. It's really good."
Caroline: "Don't tell me you're from the big city."
Antonio: "No, we're not. Dad and I come from Charlotte."
Caroline: (got serious) "Charlotte? That's where the.."
Antonio: "Big fire happened, yeah. Eighteen people died. We were lucky to survive. After mom died, and that happened, it was just.."
Antonio didn't complete the sentence, but Caroline understood.
Caroline: "Too hard?"
Antonio: "Overwhelming." (looked at her quickly) "So dad figured we could use some change. And we moved here."
Caroline: "I'm sorry."
Antonio: "It's alright. I know they always say that, but.. It is alright. I promise."
Caroline smiled upon this.
Antonio: "Is it always like this."
Caroline: "No, it's not. Must be about the band."
Antonio: "Probably." (saw that Caroline was looking around) "Hey, if you're meeting with someone I won't mind."
Caroline: "No, it's just.. I had no idea it would be.. like this."
Antonio: "Yeah, I hear you. So if not to meet someone, why are you here."
Caroline: (jokingly) "I heard it's a good way of socializing."
Antonio: (remembered when he said that) "Ah, come on!"
Caroline: (laughed. Then..) "It's just.. deep stuff, that.. would probably just scare you off. So I need a drink."
Antonio: "Do they even allow that?"
Caroline: "One of my friends work here, so.."
Antonio: "Cool. So this.. thing.. deep stuff.. Is it something I'm gonna be ready to hear eventually?"
Caroline: "Don't count on it."
Antonio: "I see. So it's a boyfriend drama?"
Caroline: (looked at him curiously) "Something like that, yeah."
They found themselves looking at each other. Meanwhile a few tables ahead, Damon was sitting alone at a table. A little while later Meredith finally showed up and sat near Damon.
Meredith: "It's really crowded tonight."
Damon: (apparently a little surprised that she came) "Yeah. You came!"
Meredith: "Did you leave me any other choice?"
Damon: "Don't say the reason you're here has nothing whatsoever to do with you finding me attractive."
Meredith: "Tiniest bit, maybe."
Damon: "That's a start!"
Meredith: "You're Alaric's friend, Damon."
Damon: "What does he have anything to do with this?"
Meredith: "You two were like brothers. I just can't see you that way."
Damon: (scoffed) "Ah, stealing my brother's girl. Just the thing one would expect from me. So no problem at this end."
Meredith: "Well I might have some."
Damon: "Well then.." (pushed a shot towards Meredith) "Let's see what we can do about that!"
Meredith looked at the drink naughtily. Then chuckled softly, took the glass and drank it.
Elena: (without moving) "Can you see the future?"
Elena: "I just.. I don't know. I have no idea where my life is going. It'd just be nice have a thing or two to look forward to, you know?"
June: (looked down) "No, I can't." (they remained silent for a while) "Why don't you tell me about Stefan."
Elena: (looked at her) "What do you wanna know?"
June: "Nothing particular."
Elena: "Then why do you ask about him?"
June: "Because I know you're thinking about him." Elena straightened up and looked at June. "It's just.. When I touched you, I saw your love for him. And.. your past together, how happy you were with him. I just don't understand why you two are not together anymore."
Elena: (did not know how to answer for a while) "I'm not sure. It's just.." (straightened completely) "Sometimes things happen and you have no control. We just drifted apart."
June: "But why?"
Elena: "I became a vampire, I killed Jeremy.. And then I just wasn't the same person. It.. Those things, they changed something in me. And we.. We just became.. sort of distant. And then there was Damon. Now it's just impossible for us to get back together."
June: (after a brief silence) "Not impossible."
Elena: "What do you mean?"
June: "You're the reason you're not together anymore."
Elena: (surprised to hear this) "What's that supposed to mean?"
June: "You're making excuses, but the fact is you're scared."
Elena: (chuckled) "Scared of what?" (June looked at her in a way saying "you already know". Upon this Elena looked down) "Saw that too, huh? When you touched me?" (brief silence) "I was trying to bury it deep."
June: "It doesn't matter with me."
Elena: "So what should I do? Just go talk to him?"
June: (shrugged) "Why not?"
Elena: "It's not that simple."
June: "Why not!? You two are immortals. It can't get any simpler than that! You have more than enough time figure everything out, so why not even try? Both of you! I just don't understand!" (Elena looked a little away) "I know he still loves you. When he was here, it was there. I saw it. And you would have too."
Elena: (looked at June) "What, if I wasn't too scared?" (June nodded) "Do you really think so?"
June's smile was so reassuring
June: "I know so."
Elena couldn't help smiling.
Antonio: "Was he your boyfriend?"
Caroline: "No. Well, not the one I'm drinking about anyway."
Antonio: "Good. Because I was planning on saying "He dumped you for that? How dare he!", and then I was going to bash on both of 'em."
Caroline: (looked at him with a smile) "You don't have to, but points for thinking." (looked at them again) "Look at them. She's so faking."
Antonio: "She doesn't have to. A girl like that could get anyone she wants."
Caroline: "Well, lucky for him, it's him."
Antonio: (looked at them) "Really?"
Caroline: "Well, not him him, she just needs something from him."
Antonio: (looked at Caroline) "What?" (Caroline looked at him, indicating she can't say. Antonio raised his hands in a surrendering manner) "Forget I asked."
Caroline: "I could hook you two up if you want."
Antonio: "You'd do that for me?"
Caroline: "For her."
Antonio laughed upon this.
Antonio: "You really hate him, don't you?"
Caroline: "Missed the part where I said he was my ex?"
Caroline: "Besides, I can tell you fancy her more than he does."
Caroline: "Please! You've been checking that table ever since we walked here."
Antonio: (got defensive) "So was not!" (calmed down) "Okay, maybe I was. But maybe I was checking for him?"
Caroline: "I know you're not gay."
Antonio: "What're you, some kind of psychic?"
Caroline: "I know a gay one I see one."
Caroline: "Hmm hmm".
Caroline: "My dad was gay."
Antonio: "Oh." (but suddenly got confused) "What?"
Caroline: "Don't ask. Mom was gay too." (upon this Antonio got incredibly confused and looked away awkwardly) "Story of my life."
Matt: "Okay, this is the last one, if I get caught boss would end me!"
Caroline: "It's okay. Thanks Matt."
After he went, she removed the pipe and drank half of it at once. Antonio was looking at her curiously.
Antonio: "It's probably a good thing you didn't drive here."
Caroline: (chuckled) "My tolerance is fairly high."
Antonio: "I can imagine."
Caroline: (after a brief pause) "You know, the thing with Tyler is, .."
Caroline: "My boyfriend."
He understood, but then he looked at her confused. He clearly had no idea why she started talking about him.
Caroline: "Tyler and I didn't.. Well, he didn't dump me." (Antonio found himself weirdly looking at Caroline's drink) "He just wanted to leave town, and I just didn't."
Antonio: (looked at her) "Leave town? That's pretty radical!"
Caroline: "There were people after him." (Antonio looked weirdly upon this. Caroline suddenly noticed and improvised) "Bullies, from school. So he wanted to go to a place that.."
Caroline paused weirdly, as if she didn't know how to complete the sentence. Antonio completed it for her.
Antonio: "Bullies wouldn't follow."
Caroline: (smiled) "Yeah."
Antonio: "So what happened.. to the bullies?"
Antonio: "Does that mean you see them everyday?"
Caroline: "I get by. Don't worry about it."
Antonio: "Must be odd."
Caroline: (looked away) "Yeah."
Drunk: "Watch it, dick!"
Matt: "I was walking right here, you walked right into me!"
Drunk: "Get over it, chump!"
And pushed Matt. He didn't fall, but took a few steps back because of the push. At that moment Damon arrived and held Matt's shoulder.
Damon: "Easy there. What's going on here?"
Drunk: "You back off, smug!"
Upon this Caroline stood up.
Caroline: "Oh no!"
She and Antonio started trying to make their way through the crowd.
Damon: "Listen, you're clearly drunk. I think you should leave before.."
Drunk: "Before what, pimp?"
Damon: "Before something really bad happens!"
A brief laughter came from the drunk and his two friends. After laughing, came very close to Damon in a threatening manner. His buddies followed in a half circle form.
Drunk: "I pay here. So my word is law. Now piss off."
Matt: (quietly to Damon) "I can't get fired Damon, don't put me in trouble."
Drunk: "You heard the busboy! Mama's boy don't want any trouble!"
A random girl in the crowd watching: "Boy, he's really itching, isn't he!"
Damon: "You're talking to the quarterback here. Show some respect."
Drunk: (smiled to his buddies) "Respect, huh?"
Then he punched Matt quickly. Matt lost his balance and fell on Meredith. Both fell to the floor. Unfortunately shards cut Meredith's arm from elbow to the hand. Matt got up quickly and walked her to the toilet. Meanwhile the trio and Damon were fighting, but it wasn't so much as a child's play for Damon. He blocked the punch from the one on the left and took him down with a right cross. He ducked to dodge the punch from the drunk one, and took down the one on his right with a left cross. Then grabbed the drunk's neck, made him walk backwards until they arrived to a table. Damon forced him to lie on the table while choking him with an intense pressure. He literally could not breath and was struggling desperately for a breath. A couple of seconds later Damon brought his head close to the drunk one's and spoke quietly.
Damon: "I could snap your neck without even flinging!"
Then threw him away with one hand. Drunk hit a wooden pillar and fell down. Immediately his two buddies arrived and helped him get up.
Buddy 1: "Come on man, let's get out of here!"
Drunk got up with the help of his friends. He was holding his neck, indicating it still hurt. He looked at Damon in fear while walking away.
After they are gone, indistinct chatters took place. Damon quickly looked at the spot where Meredith and Matt fell. There was blood on the floor, and the trail was going to the toilet. On his way there, he saw Matt going out. They saw each other and came near each other.
Damon: "How is she?"
Matt: "Pretty bad. She could use some vampire blood."
Damon: "On it. And you clean this mess, this blood's making me crazy!"
Matt nodded and walked in a hurry. Then Damon entered the toilet. But rather then what he expected to see, he saw Meredith's arm healing. After her arm healed completely, Meredith started panting and only then she saw Damon. She turned to him. Damon was quite surprised.
Meredith: "Courtesy of vampire blood."
Damon: "I thought you said you didn't have that anymore."
Meredith: "Well, luckily, I always keep a sample for me just in case."
Damon: "Where's the tube?"
Meredith: "What tube?"
Damon: "The tube that you had vampire blood in, where is it?"
Meredith: "I threw it away."
Damon: "I don't smell any blood around here, Meredith!"
Meredith: "My perfume must be covering it, Damon!"
They looked at each other curiously. Damon was nowhere near convinced, but he could see no point in pushing more. Unless he was willing to search the trash, there was no way to disprove Meredith. They eventually walked out of the toilet. Caroline and Antonio were coming towards them.
Damon: "Where have you been, Buffy?"
Caroline: "I thought you were handling yourself just fine."
Antonio: "How are you, there is blood all over!"
Damon: "Who is this?"
Caroline: "He's Antonio, from class, be nice!"
Damon: "Must be the busboy. Got hit in the nose. Weak constitution and all."
Caroline laid her head to her left shoulder and looked at Damon unable to believe what she just heard.
Meredith: "I'm not feeling well, Damon. Maybe we should.."
Damon: "Call it a night."
They walked away. Antonio and Caroline remained. He looked at Caroline with a smile.
Caroline: (smiled) "I like helping people."
Antonio: "So I noticed! You got her strength too?"
Caroline: "Working on it!"
Damon: "Will that be enough?"
Meredith: "For now. I don't like it stale, you know, so less I take, the better."
Damon: "And it's not like I'm going anywhere."
Meredith: (took out her gloves) "Exactly."
Damon: "You know this is getting funny." (looked at her) "Next time I'm gonna ask a dinner and a movie."
Meredith: (chuckled) "Next time, I'm gonna ask Stefan or Caroline."
Damon: "Perhaps I should kill them both."
Meredith: "You won't do it."
Damon: "No, I won't. But you're still gonna ask me."
Meredith: (looked at him) "Then I'll do whatever I have to."
Damon: (smiled) "Good to know." (then his smile went and he got serious. Meredith noticed it and looked at him curiously) "You know you didn't use vampire blood at the grill."
Meredith: "Then how come I healed myself?"
Damon: "That's what I wanna find out."
Meredith: "What're you implying, that I'm some kind of half human half vampire?"
Damon: "Maybe. Is there even such thing?"
Meredith: "Damon, you're not making sense!"
Damon: "I have keen senses, Meredith. If there was a drop of vampire blood I would've smelled it."
Meredith: "I told you, maybe it was my perf.."
Damon: "Yeah, heard that one before!"
Meredith: "I don't know what you wanna hear."
Damon: (got dangerously close to her) "What are you?"
Meredith: (felt uncomfortable, but covered it with a chuckle and took a few steps back) "Okay. It was a long night, Damon. Perhaps you should get some sleep."
Damon looked at her in a threatening manner. But nonetheless, she was not going to talk. He stepped back.
Then he turned around and walked outside. After he's gone, she exhaled with intense relief.
Damon was walking towards the elevator. But before he arrived, he slowed down. He clearly did not want to drop this. A couple of seconds later Meredith's door opened. She was organizing the papers on the table. As soon as the door opened, she looked at it. It was Damon.
Damon: "Can you come outside for a moment?"
Meredith: (curiously) "What is it?"
Damon: "I need to talk to you."
Meredith: (confused) "Why don't we talk here?"
Damon: "There's something I wanna show you."
Meredith: "Okay." (she was still confused, but she walked outside the office anyway. But as soon as she walked out, Damon pushed the door's lock at the inside, closed the door and broke the knob so that it cannot be opened. Meredith freaked out) "What are you doing?"
Damon (looked at Meredith angrily) "Now it's time to be honest!"
Meredith: "What are you.. What're you talking about?"
Damon: "You're gonna tell me what you are!"
Meredith: "I don't know what you're talking about!"
Damon: "Then let's recall! You were able to know that I and Caroline were vampires. You are able to heal yourself without vampire blood. Elena drank your blood during her transition and now she's the strongest vampire among us: You're not human!"
Meredith: "You're crazy!"
Damon: "Am I? Let's find out!"
Damon suddenly attacked Meredith. Meredith tried to stop him, but her efforts was futile. He eventually bit her shoulder. But only after two seconds, he started getting woozy and lost his balance. He unintentionally dropped Meredith and took a few steps back. While Meredith was holding her neck, he fell on his knees. Then he started feeling something different. It was power. Great power. Every second he digested Meredith's blood, his teeth got sharper, and his vision got deeper and better. He eventually couldn't help yelling with the great power in his body. It almost felt like he was about to explode. A few seconds later it got better. Then he looked at Meredith. His confusion was even bigger, but he somewhat had the look of pleasure on his face, knowing that he was right. Meredith freaked out even more.
Damon: (while breathing heavily because of the power that his body is not used to) "Your blood! It's... Wow!! I knew it. I knew it, didn't I! You're not human!"
Meredith: "Damon, I'm bleeding, please, heal me!"
Damon: (stood up) "I'm not gonna heal you! Heal yourself!"
Meredith: "Damon please, it's not a good time for this!"
Damon: "If you drank vampire blood at the grill it must have healed you by now, so obviously it was you! I know you can do it. Now heal yourself!"
Meredith: "Damon, I can't focus, please, I can't die!"
Damon: "You will die only if you don't heal yourself, consider me a human who just attacked you! Now heal yourself!"
Meredith: (finally straightens herself, removed her hand from her bleeding neck and yelled) "Screw you!"
She took a deep breath, then focused on her neck. She was clearly forcing herself a lot. Luckily in a few seconds, the wound started to heal. Damon was kind of proud of himself, but at the same time a little furious.
Damon: "I knew it!" (then the wound completely healed. Meredith looked at Damon in fear. Damon looked at her for a while. Then grabbed her shoulders and held her against the wall) "What are you?"
Meredith: "Damon, please, don't make me do this!"
Damon: "Do what?"
Meredith: "This! I can't reveal myself!"
Damon: "Why not?"
Meredith: "Because it's not my secret to tell!"
Damon: "What does that supposed to mean?"
Meredith: "Damon, please, you must understand. I have to keep my existence a secret!"
Damon: "Then how am I supposed to know that you're not a threat to me?"
Meredith: "I swear, I'm not a threat to you!"
Damon: "I'll decide that myself when you tell me what you are!"
Meredith: "Damon, I can't tell you that!"
Damon: "Is it a secret that is worth your life?"
Meredith: "Damon, please, you can't kill me!"
Damon: "Oh, I can. And I will!"
Meredith: "Damon, please!"
Damon: "Then tell me what you are!"
Meredith: "I can't tell you!"
Damon: (lifted his voice) "What are you, Meredith?"
Meredith: (lifted her voice too) "I can't tell!"
Damon: (blind with rage, revealed his fangs and veins. As the white of his eyes were filled with blood, he had become as scary as he can. Then yells her with his top voice) "TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE!!"
Meredith: (finally gave up) "For Christ's sake, I'm an angel!"
Damon: (confused, but finally after he heard it, he calmed down. Looked at her weirdly) "You're what?"
Meredith: "Damon please, don't make me say it again!"
Damon: "What's the big deal about it?"
Meredith: "Because you knowing this, endangers me, and everyone else like me out there!"
Damon: "What do you mean, everyone else like you?"
Meredith: "Damon please, don't make me say more! You already know too much, please, I swear I'm not a threat to you! In fact you are a threat to me. So I'm begging you, please, please please please please! Leave this!"
Damon was incredibly confused. But now that got what he wanted, he let Meredith go. She was feeling incredibly weak and couldn't stay on her feet. After seeing her like that Damon didn't know what to do at first. Then he started walking away. Meredith was panting with fear and regret.
Stefan: "Hi!" (they both didn't know what to say for a moment) "I was about to come to see you. Hence the.. glamour."
Elena: (cheerfully) "Why'd you wanna see me?"
Stefan: (with a smile) "I'm thinking the same reason that has brought you here."
Elena blushed and walked inside. She was clearly trying to put the words together in her mind. Then finally she looked at him.
Elena: "It's been a hard couple of months. But I realized that it was only hard because you weren't there."
Stefan: "Elena, I.."
Elena: "No no, it's not.. I'm not blaming you. I was the one who wanted a distance. And you always respected my choices. Even when they sucked." (Stefan looked down) "It was my fault. I pushed you away. I pushed everyone away."
Stefan: "Not everyone."
Elena: "It feels like everyone. When I'm not with you I feel all alone." (looked at each other) "You're my world, Stefan!" (held his cheek) "I love you!"
Stefan: (looked at her) "I love you too!"
They both smiled. Then they hugged and kissed each other.
Antonio: "It's been a fun night. I socialized," (they looked at each other cheerfully) "We drank underage, witnessed a bar fight.."
Caroline: "Not the kind of night you expected, huh?"
Antonio: "A couple of things went alright." (Caroline looked at him slowly) "So, um, am I gonna be seeing you?"
Caroline: "I'll be in the class."
Antonio: "I meant outside the class too."
Caroline: (looked down nervously) "Look, I can tell you're a great guy, but.. Tyler's still not out of the picture, and.."
Caroline: "I.. I didn't mean to lead you on!"
Antonio: "No, no! God, you got me wrong!"
Caroline: "I did?"
Antonio: "I just want us to be friends."
Antonio: "I know this may sound strange, but I like a girl's friendship better than a guy's."
Caroline: "You're right, it sounds strange."
Antonio: "The thing is, most guys are jerks. They're predictable. But when it comes to a girl, they're a complete mystery. They can surprise you all the time. And I find it exciting. A friendship has to have that."
Caroline: (looked at him for a while) "You're quite mysterious yourself."
Antonio: (chuckled) "I've been told." (looked at her) "So we're friends?"
Caroline: "Friends. But.. without benefits!"
Antonio looked at her in shock. Even Caroline looked away in shock, unable to believe she just said that.
Caroline: "I drank too much. And I should go home!" (Antonio didn't say anything, but nodded barely. Caroline didn't notice, because she wasn't looking at him. She eventually unlocked her seat belt and got out of the car. But before she went into the house, she looked at Antonio) "That probably hit a sour note into the whole seeing each other again, huh?"
Antonio: (looked at her with a smile) "Don't count on it." (Caroline smiled) "Good night, Caroline."
Caroline: "You too." (then he drove. After he's gone, Caroline spoke to herself) "Stupid!"
Then she entered her house.
Meredith: "We need to talk. .. No, this about me. I did something terrible. .. He guessed. .. No, I.. Yes. .. Listen Gary, something else is happening. I'm not sure, but it's affecting the whole world. .. I don't think it's them. .. It must be the doppelganger. .. I understand. .. I think. .. I think you should gather the team and come here. .. Right now is better. .. No, we have no time left. If we're gonna do this, we need them. .. And Gary .. We need to move fast. .. Good night."
Then she closed the phone and looked outside the window uncomfortably. She was extremely nervous.
