Damon makes Stefan promise to hide from the others that Bonnie Kat Graham was trapped with him, where she sacrificed herself in order to bring him back to life. Damon also is informed by Stefan that Elena, the love of his life, has compelled away all of her positive memories of him after accepting his loss.
Damon attempts to meet with Elena, but Elena refuses and attempts to avoid Damon altogether. Alaric Matt Davis , who originally altered Elena's memories of Damon with his powers of compulsion, tries to convince Elena to be recompelled to remember her feelings for Damon now that he has returned, but Elena refuses. Elena makes Alaric promise not to compell back her memory until she asks him to.
Alaric accepts her terms and asks her a favor: to find out why Jo Jodi Lyn O'Keefe cannot be compelled after attempting to compell their date from her memory the night before. Matt Zach Roerig informs Caroline and Alaric about Enzo Michael Malarkey being captured and held hostage by Tripp who is using him in order to get information about the other vampires that used to inhabit Mystic Falls.
They begin to question how Tripp was able to incarcerate Enzo before Stefan confesses that he turned Enzo in while he was in a vengeful state. Caroline and Stefan attempt to save Enzo, only to find that the warehouse in which Matt informed them Enzo was being held had been abandoned. Sarah Gabrielle Walsh goes to Tripp's office in search of information regarding her familial history, only to find that Matt is also in the office.
She enlists his help in her search after telling him her most recent discovery: Zach Salvatore was her biological father. While they are searching the files in Tripp's office, they receive a call from Caroline. They learn that Caroline's attempt at finding Enzo failed.
In the midst of their snooping, Sarah and Matt find Ivy's phone in the drawer of Tripp's desk. Since Caroline's name is in her phone as the most recently dialed number, they come to the conclusion that Tripp and his followers are aware of her vampirism. Matt and Sarah return to the Salvatore house, where Matt tells her about Damon and Stefan and their vampirism, but he advises her not to dig deeper into her history because she will not find the family that she is looking for in Mystic Falls.

Jo says nothing, but her face gives her away You're a witch. Jo: How about I make you a deal? You don't ask questions about me, and I wont ask questions about you.
Jo: Oh, and you can tell Alaric if he wants to avoid a complicated relationship, he doesn't have to hide behind compulsion to do it. Sarah is going through Tripp's files on the town's animal attacks, which contain gruesome photos from crime scenes. Sarah looks a little nauseated. Sarah: Give me the year, and I'll give you the town and foster home. She tries to open a drawer in Tripp's desk, but it's locked O h, good. Wonder what's in here. As she starts breaking into the drawer, Matt's cell phone buzzes, and when he sees it's Caroline, he answers it.
Caroline: No. Enzo is not here. Any idea where Tripp might have taken him, besides the very obvious one? Sarah finally picks the lock on the drawer, and she and Matt start to go through it. It contains several wallets, credit cards, and a cell phone which Sarah pulls out.
Matt looks nervous. Matt: still on the phone with Caroline Hang on, let me see that He takes the phone from Sarah and looks through it, revealing a photograph of Ivy as the wallpaper. When he checks the recent calls, he sees that she had a missed call from "Caroline Forbes" and looks anxious Caroline, we have another problem-- Tripp has Ivy's phone. Caroline: confused And? I mean the guy is a murderer, petty theft isn't much of a stretch. Damon sits down on the bed and picks up a beautiful framed photo of Bonnie on Elena's nightstand.
He smiles and takes out his phone before dialing Bonnie's number. It goes to voicemail. Damon: scoffs That's it? That's your outgoing message. I mean, the one time I'm actively seeking the sound of your voice, that's all I get? Anyway, I'm in your room-- which is a lot less weird than it sounds-- but I just wanted to say that because of what you did for me, today is the day I get to see Elena.
So thank you, and I'm sorry. Other than that, I don't know what to say, or what I'm supposed to say except that, defying all possible global scenarios, I might miss you a little bit.
Damon's phone beeps. He looks at the screen to see that Elena is calling him Ooh, hey, I got to go He switches over to answer Elena's call So, you didn't forget my number.
That's a good start. Elena: walks down the street Yeah, I figured that I'd press the Damon button and see what happened. Elena: I don't know. I don't even know what I'm doing. I just-- I'm thinking we should meet face-to-face. I can't run from you forever, so Damon: excited Yeah! Yeah I'll be here-- there, I'll be there , absolutely, in a bit. See you in a little bit. She hangs up. Damon, clearly nervous, gets up from the bed and returns the photo to the nightstand. He cleans up the room a little bit before fixing his hair in the mirror.
After a moment, the door opens, and Damon assumes its Elena, not noticing right away that it is actually Tripp, who is holding a vervain dart gun. Damon turns and sees Tripp and immediately vamps-out when he sees the gun. Tripp pulls the trigger, but Damon easily catches the dart in his fingers before throwing it forcefully back at Tripp, hitting him in the thigh with it.
Tripp then attempts to throw a stake at Damon, but he catches it and vamp-speeds over to Tripp, grabbing him in a choke-hold and holding the stake under his jaw. Suddenly, a series of vervain darts are shot from behind Damon, embedding themselves in his back and instantly weakening him. From behind Damon, a dart gun fires into his back a couple of times. Damon unintentionally releases Tripp and turns to see the two other hunters who shot him before he collapses onto the floor.
Everything goes black around him. Some time later, Elena walks down the hallway toward her room, but stops when she sees that her dorm room's door is cracked open.
She slowly pushes the door open all the way only to find the room is empty and otherwise untouched, aside from the fact that Damon's phone is laying on the floor next to several droplets of blood.
Elena is horrified. Alaric is in his empty classroom, packing up his bag, while he talks on the phone with Elena. Alaric: Elena, calm down. Just find Caroline and get to Old Miller Road. We'll get him back He hangs up and leaves his classroom, locking the doors behind him. When he turns to leave, he finds Jo standing in front of him him, scowling at him with her arms folded. Jo: Why don't you just compel me out of the way? Alaric sighs Look, don't you think it's about time we level with each other?
Alaric: frustrated Okay, how's this? My best friend, he just came back from the dead, but now I have to save him from a vampire hunter before he is driven across an anti-magic border and killed again. So, here's some friendly advice-- it's probably a good idea to stay as far away from me as possible. Damon wakes up in the back of Tripp's van, where he's chained by the wrists and ankles to the floor. As he starts to take in his new environment, he realizes Enzo is sitting across from him, also chained to the floor.
Damon: Enzo? Damon looks to see the chains on his wrists Well, this brings back memories. Enzo: I'm glad to see you found a way back, mate. We're headed for Mystic Falls, known for it's bridges, quaint small-town charm, and a really big vampire bug-zapper.
Enzo: Probably jealous of my accent. He shrugs Eh, maybe he did it because I killed his new girlfriend. Elena drives herself and Caroline down the road, and the tires screech as the car comes to a sudden stop just outside the Mystic Falls city limits. Caroline is in the passenger seat, talking on the phone with her mother.
She hangs up So, my mom is shutting down Route Tripp will have to double back, and there's only two other ways across the border. Elena isn't really paying attention to what Caroline is saying. She's staring off into the distance, clearly daydreaming.
Caroline bends down next to the wheels of the SUV. Caroline: Do you have a preference? Elena leans against the car, still staring straight ahead No? She pops one of the tires, and the air explodes from inside it, causing the car to sink down. Elena turns to face her I think this sells a spin-out Elena turns back again toward the dark road What do you think? Elena: I made up my mind. If Damon survives this, then I want Alaric to un-compel me.
I mean, I can't imagine ever loving him, but I also can't ignore the parts I don't like just to avoid the truth. I mean how could I make any decisions if I only know half the story? Caroline rubs her arm affectionately, and they turn to face the road ahead of them, waiting for Tripp's arrival. Alaric and Stefan have parked their car on the edge of Mystic Falls on Route 9, the only other way out of town.
Stefan pops the hood and starts anxiously pulling out pieces of the engine while Alaric watches him in concern.
Alaric: You don't have to take apart the whole engine. We just need to lure Tripp in so we can grab him. Stefan continues taking the engine apart You know, it's not your fault. Alaric: Look, you're not the only one who gave up. You know, every second for the last four months, all I could think about was when I'm gonna get my next sip of blood That I used to hunt vampires, and suddenly I was one. Searching for Damon was the only thing that could take my mind off of it, but I was basically going through the motions as a distraction because I'd given up, too.
Alaric spots headlights approaching There Stefan turns to follow Alaric's eye-line. Stefan gets in the car as Alaric approaches Tripp's slowing vehicle, waving his arms over his head and whistling to get his attention. Tripp's van slows to a halt, and inside the back of the van, Damon and Enzo can hear Tripp and Alaric talking. Alaric: Evening. Tripp rolls his window down partially to hear him better I'm trying to get my buddy to a bachelor party, and our car just stopped.
You think you can, uh, help us out? Alaric punches through the glass of the window, shattering it. Tripp instinctively ducks back to avoid the broken glass, but Alaric grabs Tripp by the collar and punches him in the face. He groans and grabs his vervain gun, shooting Alaric in the shoulder with it.
Alaric holds onto the side of the vehicle and runs alongside the car as Tripp slams down on the gas, heading straight for Stefan's car. Stefan, on his cell phone, looks up just in time to see the approaching vehicle. He vamp-speeds out of the car just before Tripp's van crashes into it.
The van flips over, flying through the air and crashing over the Mystic Falls sign, eventually landing upside down. Alaric is thrown off the vehicle. He groans as he hits the ground within Mystic Falls and rolls to a stop. Meanwhile, in the back of Tripp's overturned van, Damon groans as his gunshot wound appears in his chest from where he was originally killed.
Enzo's skin is pale as he begins spitting and coughing up blood. Stefan looks at the wreckage in shock and horror from outside the anti-magic boundary line, still on the phone with Elena, who sounds extremely worried. On the ground past the boundary, Alaric is coughing up blood, and a large stab wound has appeared on his chest where he was stabbed by Esther when he originally died. It is bleeding profusely and soaking his shirt. User Ratings. External Reviews.
