There is a crowd in Bonnie's house. Even though it is late night, people from the whole town have visited Bonnie, to congratulate her miraculous revival. Bonnie and her father thank a lot of people, including the Mayor (new mayor after Carol). Carol, Liz, and Antonio's father came too. When Bonnie sees Antonio's father, she gets up and hugs him. He looks at her and says he wishes his son was as lucky as she is. Bonnie doesn't know what to say, and looks down with sadness. But he lifts her head and tells her not to be sad. She represents hope to everyone now. Only blessed people get to have a second chance. She is blessed. So there should be no room in her for sadness. Bonnie tries to smile, but fails because she can see the pain in him for losing his son, even though most of it was taken away by Damon. A pain that they have in common. They look each other for a while, then he congratulates her and leaves.
Bonnie's father is walking the last few people to outside, as Bonnie, Elena, Caroline and Matt go Bonnie's room.
Elena: (after closing the door) "That.. was intense!" (Bonnie laughs)
Caroline: "I know, right!"
Matt: "Well, that's what happens if you revive in the public cemetery!"
Bonnie: "I couldn't choose where I would be buried! I tried to reach Matt but his ways were all shut!"
Elena: "No way!"
Matt: "You're making this up, if you wanted to reach out to me I would know!"
Bonnie: (laughs) "Okay, I lied. I was going to come back, so my soul was still intact. That's why I couldn't contact you."
Caroline: "So, Emily preserved your body and that's how she saved your life, huh?"
Bonnie: "Yeah, pretty much."
Elena: "I remember how badly you were trying to get rid of her!"
Bonnie: "I was, wasn't I?"
Elena: "You looked so funny when you were throwing her necklace to that field!" (Bonnie starts laughing)
Caroline: "And especially after that seance we made, she freaked the hell out of me. But today she is my favorite spirit!"
Elena: (touches Bonnie's shoulder) "Yeah, mine too!"
Matt: "Well, I must say you came back just in time!"
Elena: "Why is that?"
Matt: "Because tomorrow is..."
Caroline: "Oh my god!"
Matt: "The big daaay!"
Bonnie: "Wait a second, what is tomorrow?"
Elena: "Somebody tell her please!"
Caroline: "No, I think we should make her suffer a little more!"
Everyone in the room burst into laughter.
June is still sleeping. Stefan gets into her room and opens the curtains. June groans and tells him to get out. Stefan tells her that they are getting late. After that June gets up and looks at Stefan weirdly for a moment. Stefan asks what is she doing. June says she just checked if he really is Stefan. Stefan says if he wanted to kill her, he wouldn't bother waking her up. June smiles. Stefan says he'll be downstairs, and if she wants to eat something she had better hurry because they need to go out in an hour. Then he goes out and June gets out of her bed.
There is a hard work in the school garden. A lot of people are carrying the chairs and setting them in an order. The stage is also being set. They are trying to make everything ready for the graduation. Then slowly parents start to show up. There is a fun talk in the school garden, and parents are congratulating other parents.
Inside the school, graduates are talking to each other, waiting the time they will go outside to the stage. At that time Elena, Caroline and Bonnie show up. When they see the trio, they all start cheering, as they heard that Bonnie came back to life miraculously. They all congratulate Bonnie. One of them says this is the best day ever. Someone else says it's a miracle she made it out alive. They heard there was an explosion and she burned. Bonnie smiles and says obviously she didn't burn. They are all happy to have Bonnie back. Then someone enters and gives them their caps and gowns. They all cheer happily once again, and start wearing them. The man asks where is Stefan Salvatore. Elena says he'll be there in a minute. She can take his things. Upon this he gives Stefan's cap and gown to Elena. Two other people are missing too. Someone else say they will take their things. He leaves the other caps and gowns and then gets out. After he goes, Matt comes near the trio and says that they look like Charlie's Angels, except they are not Charlie's but Mystic Falls'. They smile and Caroline says she thinks this was a compliment. Elena looks at Matt and says he looks smashing. Matt smiles and says this is what Sue wanted him to wear. She was the one who liked this, who bought this. He just wishes she was here to see him wearing it. Bonnie touches Matt's shoulder with compassion. Caroline tells them to talk about something else. She doesn't want to cry, because have time to refresh her make up. Elena smiles and looks around. Then asks Matt if he saw Stefan. Matt says he didn't.
Stefan is standing outside with June, waiting for Damon so that he can go inside. He doesn't want to leave June, even though she claims she can protect herself. Carol Lockwood comes closer to them. She congratulates him for the graduation, then asks if he heard any news about Tyler. She says she has been talking to Liz, and Caroline has been here all this time, she just hasn't heard from Tyler and she is worried. Stefan, knowing that Tyler doesn't want his presence known, lies and says he didn't hear either. He says he's not sure but he overheard a part of conversation and he thinks he and Caroline broke up and Tyler left town forever. Carol say she just wants to know if he is alive and well. Stefan smiles and says he's a hybrid. He's sure that Tyler is okay. Carol smiles too. Then tells them to enjoy the day and walks away. June slowly says she doesn't trust Tyler. Stefan asks why. June says ever since he learned that she can read minds, he is giving her a wide berth. Stefan asks if she means the night they thought he was a kitsune. June says not just that. He also didn't come closer to Bonnie when she revived after he saw that she was there too. She says she thinks he is hiding something big. Stefan is curious, and asks what kind of a thing. June shakes her head and says she doesn't know.
The staff is making the last preparations. Parents have already sat to the chairs. Stefan suddenly hears a conversation between Damon and Sheriff Carson, who is watching the crowd. Damon asks how is everything. Sheriff says they are having such a hard time after her accident. Damon asks if there is anything he can do. Sheriff laughs painfully and says he can compel him and his wife. Damon smiles, then Sheriff says he didn't really mean that. Damon says he knows. Then he sees Stefan and says he needs to go. Sheriff looks behind him for a moment as he walks away, then turns back to the crowd.
Stefan walks inside, and Elena says finally. He quickly wears his gown and cap. Then they kiss each other quickly. Elena asks where is June, despite knowing that he wouldn't leave her alone. Stefan still replies she is with Damon. Then asks her if she is nervous. Elena says a little, because unlike him, this will be her first graduation. Stefan smiles. Caroline comes near them and says Tyler doesn't even want to graduate. Elena and Stefan look at each other, feeling that they are both disturbed from the same thing. Caroline looks at them and asks what is wrong. Elena quickly says they are surprised that he is just throwing away the hard work of all those years in school. Caroline agrees. Then someone enters the room and tells them to get ready. It's starting.
The students walk out and go to stage one by one as their names are called. The crowd start cheering and applauding instantly. When all students come, the announcer says they are proud of all of their students, who are the brand new graduates of Mystic Falls High. But before they proceed, upon the request of last year's Miss Mystic Falls Caroline Forbes, they want to dedicate this ceremony to their friends that they lost this year. Dana Court, Chad Watson, Rebekah Mikaelson, Sue Carson, and the history teacher Mr. Alaric Saltzman. Caroline feels disturbed that Rebekah was mentioned among her friends. The announcer says there was also Bonnie Bennett in the list, but they were very glad to erase her name last night. This manages to put a smile to everyone's faces. After that, they call the first, second, and third degree graduates. None of them are from our guys, but they all seem to be okay with that. Then all the students are asked forward one by one to be given their diplomas. Starting with Mayor, all important people of Mystic Falls, including the sheriff and a few founders council members deliver the diplomas. Finally when a music starts playing at the background, confettis are thrown, and all the students throw their caps to the sky at the same time. The crowd cheers loudly. Damon tells June to touch him. June understands that he wants to say something but not loudly. She touches him, and hears Damon asking her to connect everyone right now. Just for fun. June smiles naughtily, but says no loudly. Damon looks at Elena and Stefan, and sees that they are shaking their heads with disapproval but smiling. Understands that June connected him, Stefan and Elena, and yells her jokingly. June laughs loudly.
Then everyone starts taking pictures with everyone, as lots of people will scatter around for college, for work, and for different reasons, and this will be the last memory of each other for them. Matt is saying goodbye to his other class mates and team mates. Then he comes near Elena and Stefan. Elena hugs Matt, and wishes him good luck in his new life. Matt thanks her. Then they hand shake with Stefan. Matt says it was great to be a part of them, as the last human among his friends. They all smile him. Caroline hugs her mother. Liz tells her that she is proud of her. Caroline smiles and thanks her. Then she hugs all her friends while tears coming from her eyes. Elena is dropping tears too. Finally they hug each other. Caroline says she is going to miss all of them. Elena says she will miss her too. She then looks around but cannot see Bonnie around. While looking around, asks if anyone can see Bonnie. They all look around but she is not here. Damon slowly comes near them. Caroline hugs June, and tells her to take good care of herself. June says she will, and she will miss her. Caroline says she's going to miss her too. And everyone. Then looks at Damon, and says she doesn't really like him, but she's going to miss him too. Damon looks at her not knowing how to react. Then she comes closer and hugs him. Damon doesn't know what to do at first, but sees that Elena is signing him to hug her back, which he does so. Then she tells him to take good care of her friends, then says goodbye to all of them, and leaves.
Bonnie enters the cave. Tyler shows up with a smile, thinking it is Caroline, but when he sees that it is Bonnie, he gets serious.
Tyler: "What are you doing?"
Bonnie: "No, what are you doing!?" (Tyler looks confused) "Klaus, you can't do this to Caroline!"
Tyler: "Relax, I haven't done anything."
Bonnie: "Good. And you won't either! This is Caroline we're talking about!"
Bonnie: "So, you can't do this to her!"
Tyler: "I'm not doing anything to her!"
Bonnie: "Really? Then tell me about your plans with Caroline for tonight!" (Tyler looks at her) "Klaus you can't do this! This is not right!"
Tyler: "Then what am I supposed to do, Bonnie? You killed my siblings, I didn't say a thing. I cannot create hybrids because you fail to resurrect my body. I have nothing left, you took everything from me, now tell me. What am I supposed to do in this body?"
Bonnie: "Just what other vampires do!"
Tyler: "I want more!"
Bonnie: "You won't get it!"
Tyler: "Watch me!"
Bonnie: "If you do that, you break our deal!"
Tyler: "Our deal would stand if you managed to put me back in my body. But instead if trying, what were you doing for almost half year?"
Bonnie: "Klaus, if you keep this, I will tell her the truth!"
Tyler: "If you do that, she will hate you forever, for not telling her all this time."
Bonnie: "Better than letting her spend the rest of her life which means the eternity, with someone she hates but she doesn't know."
Tyler: "Then perhaps I should kill you now."
Bonnie: "Do you think when I resurrected, I just came back to life? The spirits brought me back for a reason, and now I have them on my side. You can never kill me Klaus. But if I want, I can kill you."
Tyler: "Then go ahead. Kill me, along with all of your friends." (gets his face too close to Bonnie's) "I dare you!"
Bonnie: (looks at Tyler for a moment) "I promise you Klaus, I will find a way to kill you, without hurting my friends!"
Tyler: "Good luck with that!"
Bonnie looks at her angrily, then goes outside.
While Bonnie was walking outside, she runs into her father, who is angry at her for leaving him there. He had to take a cab. Bonnie says she is sorry but she had to leave. He looks at Bonnie and asks if she is going outside again. Bonnie says yes. He asks where, and she replies to Elena's lake house. Bonnie's father doesn't really like this, but tells her to be careful. Bonnie says she will, then quickly kisses him and goes outside. He shakes his head with disapproval, but doesn't say a word and closes the door slowly.
Meredith is in her car, driving as fast as she can. Suddenly her phone rings. It's Christian. She replies.
Meredith: "Chris, I can't feel it anymore, did you get it done?"
Christian: (panting with fear) "No, Mary!"
Meredith: (freaks) "What!?"
Christian: "I.. I couldn't!"
Meredith: "What do you mean you couldn't?"
Christian: "A god damn police pulled me over because I was speeding!"
Meredith: "Oh my god!"
Christian: "I just came here Meredith, and it's gone. It's gone! The phantom is gone, and I have no clue where it is right now!"
Meredith looks outside the front window with an incredible fear.
