The episode begins with Bad Alaric contemplating his new vampire reality in his empty classroom at school. Meanwhile, Tyler calls Caroline to tell her he has to go help Klaus move. He's planning to fake the sire bond until Klaus leaves town. Someone streaks vamp fast through school, by Caroline. Rebekah is the only one there for the cleanup committee and, as she reminds Caroline, she didn't even get to go to the dance. Meanwhile, Caroline offers her sympathy about her mom and Rebekah says the same about Alaric. Rebekah heads to the gym and runs into Alaric. "You're supposed to be dead," she says. "I am," he says. He tries to stake her but Caroline comes to her aid and together they drive the stake into his stomach. ..Read the full recap
Klaus: I'm leaving town; just need to pick up a few road trip necessities. Spare tire, flashlight, doppelgänger.
Rebekah: You are late. Clean up committee started at eight o'clock.
Caroline: It's like 8:02.
Rebekah: Exactly. I managed to turn up on time and I didn't even get to attend the dance that I organized.
Klaus: I'll collect Elena and we`ll be on our way.
Rebekah: Forget Elena! You don`t need any more stupid hybrids!
Klaus: What I need is protection from Esther's continued assaults against us.
Rebekah: We will protect each other, like we always have. Always and forever, Nik.
Stefan: Elena is not here. Alaric has her and Caroline and he is gonna kill them both unless you turn yourself over to him.
Klaus: Now, I know you are not asking me to walk into a certain death.
Stefan: I really wish we could, but unfortunately, if Alaric kills you there is a one in four chance that we die too.
Damon: I'll take those odds.
Bonnie: I might have an idea. My mom used a desiccation spell on Mikael that immobilized him for over 15 years. If I can get it, I might be able to use it on Alaric.
Klaus: If and might? Your words inspire such confidence.
Matt: You know, to be honest, I'm a little pissed none of you let me help you take down Original brother number two.
Tyler: Yeah, he would have taken you right down to the hospital, bro.
Matt: Please, I'm more stealth than that. I'm like a ninja.
