Stefan has a dream about Katherine. They are dancing, and when he leans
in for a kiss she tells him no touching, those are the rules. He notices
that Damon is unamused that she is with him, and she tells him that
Damon needs to concede that Stefan is a better dancer. When next he
looks at Damon, he is with Elena, and as he heads toward them, they
begin to walk away. Katherine tries to stop him from going to her. They
go through a door which closes behind Damon and Elena. When he follows
them through, he's back in current times. He appears to be in a bar.
He looks through the crowd and sees Elena at a pool table. She says
"it's your turn." Damon says "be prepared to lose" and they kiss.
Katherine shows up in current times, still wearing her gown. She notes
that it hurts (to see what Stefan is seeing) and now he knows how she
feels. She tells him he loved her once. The dream reverts to the past
and Katherine tells him they can love again. They kiss. He wakes up
and tells her it was a bad dream, and she should go back to sleep. He
lands on the other side of the room, and hisses her name. Katherine
grins and says he has to admit she's getting better at this. Stephen
asks Katherine why she's back in town, and she says three reasons, and
they are all him...Read the full recap
