Elena, Stefan, Damon and June just arrived to the lake house. They get inside the house and look each other. June asks how long they should stay here. Elena says until Meredith or Christian destroy Gary's phantom. Stefan says he's sure they can do it. After all there are 2 angels but one phantom. Damon says "piece of cake". Suddenly his phone rings. He looks and sees that Meredith's calling. Stefan smiles and says it's already done. June jokingly asks if they all came here for nothing. Elena smiles and says June has a point. Upon this Stefan suggests swimming. Meanwhile Damon replies the phone. Elena looks at Stefan after his suggestion. Stefan says a family who has a house near the lake must have a couple of swim trunks. Elena smiles and says fine. She'll go and try to find them. But before she goes anywhere, Damon tells them fun is over. Elena looks around and asks why. Damon says Meredith told him the phantom escaped. Everyone feels down. Damon says it was already gone when they got there, and they have no idea where it could be. Stefan rushes to the window and looks at the sky. It's almost dark but not late hour, so people are still outside, which means angels cannot fly to search. Damon says they cannot feel their presence either too. Elena says then they had best stay inside. Everyone agrees.
Tyler knock's Caroline's room's door, despite it is open. Caroline looks at him and smiles. Tyler asks if she will need all of these. Caroline asks if he decided where they will go. Tyler says he was thinking closing their eyes and choosing a random point on map. Caroline smiles and says it sounds nice. Then asks him if he is ready, because they will be going in a few hours. Tyler says he is ready for days, he is just waiting for her. Caroline looks at him for a moment, then asks him to close the door. Tyler does so. Then Caroline says she is going to asks a few questions, and she wants him to be honest with her. Tyler says of course. Upon this Caroline asks him why he never went to see his mother. Tyler says "you know the reason". Because he wants her to think he left, and if she knew he is here it will be harder for her to say goodbye to him twice. Caroline says but he is living in a cave for almost a month, and it is not normal. Tyler asks where does this come from. Caroline says he is been acting weirdly lately. Elena felt it too. Tyler gets angry says Elena doesn't know a crap about life because her pretty ass is always taken care of by those two Salvatore bodyguards. But he had to go through everything by himself. Caroline yells him to calm down. She is not talking about her. She is talking about him. She has been realizing this herself too. Tyler asks her what she has been realizing. Upon this Caroline asks him why he didn't let June touch him. Asks him if he is hiding something from her. Tyler looks at her and asks if this is the problem. Because if it is, then she can call June and make her touch him. Caroline doesn't know what to say. Tyler continues and says sometimes people have things that they want to keep for themselves. And he doesn't really like the idea of sharing his brain with a little girl he doesn't even know, when he is hiding things from his mother. He asks her if they should keep a psychic with them all the time to see if they are being honest to each other. Because after they leave, all they will have is each other. And they should hold on to that. Not something else. Caroline looks down for a moment, then says that he is right. She overreacted. Maybe because she just freaked because of the idea of leaving forever. Tyler smiles and says he understands that. Then says he will be waiting downstairs.
After he leaves, Caroline's phone rings. Bonnie is calling. She replies and asks her where did she get lost. Bonnie asks her if she left. Caroline says not yet. She is packing her things now, but in an hour or two they will be gone. Bonnie tells her never to leave with Tyler. Caroline is surprised, and asks why. Bonnie says she wasn't honest with her, and she needs to know the truth. Caroline asks what is going on. Bonnie says she did something terrible with him. And she hid it from everyone. Caroline asks what. But Bonnie sees a huge black ghostly thing floating in the sky and startles. She says she will talk to her later. But tells her never to leave before she sees her, then closes the phone and calls Damon. She tells him that she is now seeing the phantom, it's in the sky. Damon asks her where is it. Bonnie describes the place. Then tells him to call Meredith. Damon says he will, and ends the call.
Caroline shows up behind Tyler. She is looking at him angrily. Tyler looks behind, and sees Caroline. Smiles.
Tyler: "Hey, you're ready?"
Caroline: "No. Are you?"
Tyler: (confused) "What is this?"
Caroline: "Ready to tell me the truth!"
Tyler: "What're you talking about?"
Caroline: "I am talking about you and Bonnie!" (upon hearing this, Tyler freaks and slowly stands up) "What happened between you two?"
Tyler: "Did she tell you something?"
Caroline: "Yes! She told me that you two did something, and she hid it from everyone, and now I need to know the truth! What happened between you?"
Caroline: "Wrong answer!"
Tyler: "Caroline, I.."
Caroline: "I should have known. But I was too blinded and I ignored everything. But it was right there all this time! Now that I think I'm starting to realize, that is the reason why you've been acting weird, isn't it? That is the reason why you've been avoiding everyone and living in a cave, that is the reason why you wouldn't let June touch you! Because you cheated on me! And you cheated with Bonnie and you hid it from me! Am I wrong? AM I WRONG!??"
Tyler: "Listen.. Look.."
Caroline: "I should have listened to Elena when she tried to warn me! But thank god it's not too late, because this, this thing is over! Now get out of my home!"
Tyler: "Okay, fine! I'll tell you!"
Caroline: (looks at him angrily and sadly. She remains silent for a moment, then slowly speaks) "Do you love her?"
Tyler: "No. Look, yes, we had a thing, but it was a long time ago!"
Caroline: "How long?"
Tyler: "Before even you and I even started talking to each other. Before you were a vampire, before I was a werewolf.. There was a party and we drank a lot, we were drunk, and the first thing I remember is waking up near her!"
Caroline: "Oh, Jesus!"
Tyler: "But then we talked to each other and decided not to talk about this. Ever! I don't know why she is trying to bring this up right now. She's clearly freaking because she's afraid to lose you!"
Caroline: (looks at Tyler for a moment. She looks calmer. Apparently she's convinced) "Tyler, when I ask your honesty, I need you to be honest with me. I need to know everything about you, so that some day if someone says something about you, we wouldn't be strained and fight each other. I need to be able to trust you."
Tyler: "Okay. From now on, I promise. Or I swear, or I give you my word, pick one!" (Caroline smiles) "I am being completely honest with you."
Caroline: (looks at him) "Is there anything else I need to know?"
Caroline: "About you, about others. About the time you were away."
Caroline: "You're not keeping anything else from me?"
Caroline: "Are you telling me the truth?"
Caroline: "Can I trust you?"
Tyler: "Of course you can."
Caroline: "Do you promise?"
Tyler: (smiles) "I promise."
Caroline: (she smiles too) "That's all I need to know."
Then they hug each other.
Tyler: "I love you."
Caroline: "I love you too!"
Tyler: "Okay, go pack your things and lets leave here asap." (Caroline starts walking to her room) "Oh, and.. Give me your phone."
Caroline: (She is surprised. While smiling) "What?"
Tyler: "Before someone else calls and flames up another thing." (Caroline gives a fake laughter effect, but then smiles and gives her phone) "Actually I lied. Your phone has good games and I'm bored of waiting!"
Caroline: "Haha.." (then looks at the phone) "Don't kill the battery."
Then turns around and quickly goes to her room.
Meredith's phone rings. She looks and sees that it's Damon. She, without removing her eyes from the road, answers the phone and asks what happened. Damon says he has good news. Meredith asks what is it. Damon says he might know where the phantom is. Meredith says he didn't need to bother, because she is chasing it right now. Damon is surprised. Meredith says there are people around, so she can't use her wings, but she is chasing by car. Damon says bummer. Meredith asks where are they. Damon replies somewhere safe, and tells them not to worry about them. Meredith says good. Then looks at the phantom and says she thinks where the phantom is heading to. Damon asks where. Meredith replies Elena's lake house. Damon suddenly freaks and says that's where they are. Meredith freaks too, and tells them to get out of there immediately. Damon ends the call and tells Stefan to find Elena, and he will find June. The phantom is coming here and they need to get out now.
Bonnie and Elena are walking to the warehouse, unaware of what's going on.
Elena: "I'm sorry I called June, but you acted weird and I needed to know for sure that it was you."
Bonnie: "Don't be. I would do the same thing too."
They eventually arrive to the warehouse, and they close the door.
Elena: "Okay, here we are. Now tell me, what was bugging you all day."
Bonnie: "It's Tyler."
Elena: "I know that, but what is wrong with him?"
Bonnie: "Tyler.." (she is clearly finding it too hard to tell. But she finally speaks) "Tyler, is not Tyler!"
Elena: (she is surprised) "What?"
Bonnie: "Do you remember what happens when an original vampire dies?"
Elena: "Yeah, all of their bloodline dies with them."
Bonnie: "Elena, how are you still alive?"
Elena: "Because when Tyler broke his sire bond, it somehow effected all of us."
Bonnie: (shakes her head) "No, that is something Klaus made up."
Elena: (shocked to hear this) "What?"
Bonnie: "Elena, I did something, and I hid this from everyone."
Elena: "What, Bonnie? What did you do?"
Bonnie: "When Alaric killed Klaus, I put his spirit in Tyler's body. Tyler is Klaus now!"
Elena: (completely shocked) "Ever since.."
Bonnie: "Ever since Alaric killed him!"
Elena: "And that is why Caroline can't leave with Tyler, because Tyler is Klaus.." (gets mad) ".. all this time!"
Bonnie: "He promised that he wouldn't take the advantage of his body, but now.."
Elena: "Oh my god, they are leaving!"
Bonnie: "I couldn't face Caroline myself after all this time, I need you to be there with me while I'm talking to her!"
Elena: "Okay, I understand. I'm calling her now, I hope they're still here."
Caroline's phone rings, but Tyler has it. He sees that Elena is calling, and declines the call. Then closes the phone completely.
Elena says she doesn't answer, so she's going there. Bonnie says she'll go with her. Together they go to the door, but the second they open it, they freak with the sight of the phantom, floating right outside the house. Instantly June and Stefan freak too. Damon sees their reactions and asks what happened. Stefan says they are at the warehouse and there is a phantom outside. They immediately start running.
Bonnie slams the door with her witch powers as she and Elena run back inside, but the phantom breaks the door and gets in. It immediately locks Bonnie, and Bonnie starts screaming. Elena runs between them with her vampire speed. The phantom's hold breaks and Bonnie falls down. Elena quickly grabs the phantom and throws it to the opposite wall to the door. Then she lifts Bonnie. But before they can run, the phantom stretches it's tail and grabs Elena with it. Elena yells Bonnie to run. Before she can, Stefan, Damon and June arrive. The phantom has pulled Elena to itself, and coiled up around her, making her unable to move. Elena yells them to take June and Bonnie away. Meanwhile the phantom starts screaming. Stefan understands that it wants something to suck. Damon says it's going to get dick. Phantom screams eerily. Elena starts desperately looking around, and sees a lantern on a table, which is a little far to her. She suddenly hears Gary's voice in her head, kinda like a flashback to the moment when he said it to them.
Gary: "Aside from the angel wings, only elements of nature can destroy a phantom. You can bury them under ground, drown them in water, or burn them in fire."
Knowing what to do, Elena tries to reach to the lantern. Others look at her, trying to understand what she is trying to do. Elena uses all her vampire strength and speed to break free of the phantom's hold, but it's not going to leave her. However, she can manage to drag the phantom with her, even though it is too hard for her. Finally she reaches the table and grabs the lantern. Damon suddenly understands what she is planning. Yells no, and intends to run to Elena. However before he can, Elena hits the phantom with the lantern as hard as she can.
The lantern breaks, and because of the oil and fire, both Elena and phantom burst into flames. The phantom immediately starts screaming with pain, which incapacitates everyone. Elena, who is burning, is screaming too. Then she drops to the ground, still on fire. Her screams stop, but Damon, Stefan, Bonnie and June are still screaming because of the pain that phantom's scream causes. After a moment, the phantom explodes, and the scream ends. Bonnie raises her head, and sees that Elena is still on fire. Yells "Sutas incendia!". Immediately the fire is put out. But Elena is not moving. Stefan rushes to her with an incredible fear, and moves her so that he can look at her face. It's completely burned, however, she is still breathing.
Stefan: "You're not dead, you're gonna heal! You're gonna heal!"
But Elena speaks painfully. Apparently her wounds are hurting her so much while speaking, so she speaks with a very low voice.
Elena: "I.. can't heal!"
Stefan: (shocked) "What?"
Elena: "I'm so sorry!"
Stefan: "No no no no no, what're you talking about!?"
Elena: (looks into Stefan's eyes) "I'm dying!"
Stefan gasps for breath, and Damon appears on the other side of her.
Damon: "No no no, you can't die, you can't do this to me!"
Elena: "We never talked about it Damon, but.." (gulps) "I remember you. Meeting you, the first time."
Damon: (his eyes are full with tear) "I know you do."
Elena: "I'm sorry I never said it out loud, but you deserve to hear, I loved you Damon. I did."
Damon: (cannot stop a few tears falling from his eyes) "Thank you, Elena."
Elena makes an uncomfortable move, and they understand she is living her last seconds. Elena is aware of that too. With the last of her breath..
Bonnie: (appears right near Stefan) "I'm here, Elena!"
Elena cannot speak anymore, but she understands.
Bonnie: "I'll take care of her!"
Elena smiles, then her head falls behind. June has blacked out because of the phantom's screams, and she doesn't know what happened, but the others - Stefan, Damon, and Bonnie - are crying their eyes out.
June, Bonnie, Stefan and Damon are inside the lake house. June woke up, and learned what happened. She and Bonnie are crying so badly. Stefan is sitting, with absolutely no move. He is clearly having an emotional break down. And Damon is pacing back and forth, awaiting to explode with the smallest thing.
Suddenly Damon's phone rings, and eyes are turned to Damon. He looks at his phone. It's an unknown number. He replies.
A girl voice: "Damon?"
Damon immediately recognizes the voice.
Damon: "Trust me girl, it's not a good time."
Misao: "I don't really care about your problems Damon."
Damon: "What do you want?"
Misao: "I want June."
Damon: "You're getting dick!"
Misao: "No. Lets try again. I have Jeremy."
Damon: (surprised, and angry) "What?"
Misao: "You know, the little boy in Denver. Still remember him?"
Damon: "You've gotta be kidding me."
Misao: "I wish I was. But when I looked at Elena, all I could see was this Jeremy, Denver, and how badly she misses her little brother. So I decided to pay a visit. You know, he didn't really cause any trouble to me, especially when he was thinking that I was Elena!"
Damon: "Don't you dare to speak her name!"
Misao: "Fine, as you wish. But here's the deal. You'll come to Steven's Quarry in one hour, and bring June with you. You'll give me June, and I'll let Jeremy go. If you do not come, Jeremy dies. If you're one second late, Jeremy dies. If you do not bring June with you, Jeremy dies! Understood?" (after a few seconds of silence) "Damon, do you understand me?"
Damon doesn't reply, but furiously ends the call.
