Damon and Enzo have invited a local farmer and his wife to host them – well be dinner anyway, but Enzo thinks this is no reason to not show good manners towards one’s host. It’s good to see a vampire with standards in these wayward times. He’s also keeping a close eye on the clock to see how long Damon can go before he needs his vampire blood after the little oopsie last episode.
The farmer them wakes up – their solution to Damon’s little problem is to turn people into vampires for Damon to eat. Well, it’s one way to make it work. They also have a bet about whether the farmer’s wife left him or not – and yes, I was totally wrong and laughed. Enzo’s also not impressed by Damon’s attempts to scare him off.
I take it all back, get Damon off the redemption train, cut everyone else, let’s just follow Enzo and Damon on their evil little tour of mayhem, they’re just so much fun together! It also shows how very much Dr. Wes didn’t think things through
Alas it’s not to be and we have to deal with Stefan helping Kathlena study for her history test. Katherine is still the worst at being undercover and reveals her in depth, detailed knowledge of history (though I semi-agree with her take in the treaty of Westphalia) that there’s absolutely no way Elena knew (because she never actually went to school unless there was a dance, ball, party, founder’s parade etc – which was, admittedly, every 3 weeks). This is interrupted by Caroline bringing in some research from her mother (who will always be Founderella to me) that basically confirms that Damon is eating vampires. Stefan has a bit of a guilt trip and Caroline is still clearly uncomfortable with Kathlena’s eager chasing of Stefan.
Tyler calls Caroline and apparently the incident with him being pissed at her over sleeping with his mother’s murderer has evolved into “when he nearly killed you” in Stefan’s eyes which is an interesting… reinterpretation of events. Anyway, he’s worried about the disappearing Matt after Nadia was playing compulsion games with him. Caroline decides this is a great time for her and Tyler to work together to find him despite Tyler loathing her right now – because you really want to spend more quality time with the woman who embraced the murderer of your mother and a substantial number of your friends, right?
Kathlena contacts Nadia because the whole Matt disappearing thing was totally not part of her awful awful plan to hang around in the middle of nowhere with people who will very soon guess she’s not Elena especially since she’s really really bad at undercover work. Nadia wants to recompell him to forget once the vervain has left his system, Katherine just wants him dead. I kind of want him dead too – but only because he is a completely unnecessary, dull character. Nadia isn’t on board with killing people to keep the secret especially since Katherine is doing such an utterly awful job of it herself, she’s rather stay and canoodle with Matt; once she knows what it means anyway
Enzo and Damon have been followed by Dr Wes (who has to die) and his friendly pack of travellers who chant them into being trapped in the house. The plan is to trap them both in the house and see how long Damon can go before he munches on Enzo. Alas they even covered the throw things out the window plan. Has anyone tried the roof?
