The episode begins with Elena waking up and calling Stefan. He ignores her call. She leaves a message, saying she has to talk to him. She calls Damon. She wants to talk and tells him if he's mad, he needs to get over it. He's lying in bed with Rebekah. He's over it. Later, he walks Rebekah to the door in last night's party dress. Elena is on the other side. After Rebekah is gone, Elena asks if this is how he's lashing out at her for hurting his feelings. She reminds him that Rebekah tried to kill her less than 48 hours ago. He suggests it has nothing to do with her. She tells him about Esther's kill-them-all plan. Damon's immediately for it. Stefan joins in, saying it's the only way to go. Rebekah comes home on the walk of shame and gets razzed by Kol and Klaus. ..Read the full recap

Caroline: So what do you want to talk about?
Klaus: I want to talk about you. Your hopes. Your dreams. Everything you want in life.
Caroline: Just to be clear, I'm too smart to be seduced by you.
Klaus: Well, that's why I like you.
Stefan: I lost that coin toss, Damon. It should have been me who turned Abby. Why'd you do it?
Damon: 'Cause I'm not blind. I see what's been going on around here. You're hanging by a thread, Stefan. Barely over your last ripper binge and all you want is to be the old Stefan again.
Stefan: That part of me is gone for good.
Damon: Oh yeah? How long has it been since you had a drop of human blood?
Stefan: How'd you know?
Damon: Spend a hundred and forty-six years with someone, you kind of start to pick up on their tells. Answer the question. How long's it been since your last drink?
Stefan: Since the night I threatened to drive Elena off the Wickery bridge.
Damon: She's not gonna listen to anything I say.
Stefan: Is it because of your little sleepover?
Damon: It's not my fault she decided to get jealous.
Alaric: I haven't seen Elena since this morning.
Damon: Well, she's not answering her phone.
Alaric: Well, I'm surprised you have time to call, what with all this Original sex you've been having.
Elena: Why are you doing this?
Stefan: He's right, you know. Klaus has to die. They all do.
Damon: See? It's democracy in action.
When Elijah is talking to Elena about his past, he points to a field and says that there used to be wild horses that grazed there about 1000 ago near the Indian village. However, horses went extinct in North America about 10,000 years ago, and weren't re-introduced by Spanish "Conquistadores" until the 16th century.
After Damon turns Abby into a vampire, Esther and Finn disappear from the inside of the circle. Klaus, Kol and Elijah are standing next to one another outside of the circle. A moments later, when the flames go out, Kol is standing in the middle of the circle.
