Caroline Forbes: [entering] Well, the only thing Matt remembers is that they slept together.
Tyler Lockwood: [regards his former girlfriend, sighs] Well...
Caroline Forbes: So...
[turns her back, starts leaving]
Tyler Lockwood: Care...
[she turns back]
Tyler Lockwood: I never said "sorry.^ I was pissed, but... no excuses. Okay?
Caroline Forbes: [nods, smiles] Look, we can get past this together. Okay? I just want us to be... good again, you know?
Tyler Lockwood: I said I was sorry. But I didn't say I was past it.
Caroline Forbes: Of course. Obviously. I mean, Rome wasn't built in a day.
Tyler Lockwood: [shakes his head] How evolved do you think I am? You slept with Klaus. You slept with the guy who killed my Mom. What's a fair amount of time for me to get past that? A week? A month? Tell me, what sounds right to you?
Caroline Forbes: Okay. You made your point.
Tyler Lockwood: Look. I'm not trying to be a dick. But the idea of us being good... It's not gonna happen.
Caroline Forbes: [nods] Understood.
Caroline Forbes: You were right. He's off the rails.
[text message on cell-phone]
Caroline Forbes: And this is from my Mom.
Stefan Salvatore: Let me guess. Missing persons and animal attacks.
Caroline Forbes: Check and check. There's something else. All the victims were found inside their homes without their head and their skin was desiccated.
Stefan Salvatore: [realizes] Damon's feeding on vampires.
Stefan Salvatore: [sighs] I shouldn't have let him go.
Caroline Forbes: No! Uh-uh! You are not turning Damon's roosting chicken into a Stefan Salvatore guilt trip. No one could have stopped him from going after Wes the other night.
Stefan Salvatore: I guess Wes must have injected him with whatever he was gonna give Elena that makes vampires feed on vampires.
Caroline Forbes: Good news, bad news. Bad news is that when this happened to Jesse we had to kill him, but... the good news is...
Caroline Forbes: I'm sorry. Usually there's some good news.
Matt Donovan: I was on my way out of town and then there she was, sitting on my front steps.
Nadia: Subtlety is not my strong suit. I felt bad about abandoning him
Nadia: and bad about snapping your neck. Again, subtlety.
Tyler Lockwood: So why haven't you been answering your phone?
Matt Donovan: Aw, I lost it the first night.
Caroline Forbes: First night Where?
Nadia: Atlantic City. I've never been, and neither had Matt.
Matt Donovan: One drink led to three, and to five,
Matt Donovan: and then, uh... the rest is kind of a blur.
Caroline Forbes: Yeah, because she's compelling you!
Matt Donovan: Caroline, I'm wearing vervain. She's not compelling me.
Caroline Forbes: [tries compelling Matt] Where have you been the last two days?
Matt Donovan: I told you. She's not compelling me. We're having fun.
Caroline Forbes: Fun? Just like the time she buried you alive! Whoo! Break out the champagne!
Nadia: [to Matt:] I thought you said she'd be cool with us hanging out.
Caroline Forbes: And what the hell is that supposed to mean?
Nadia: [as Matt stammers trying to intervene] It means you've done nothing else but judge Matt since he walked through that door. When everyone else knows you're not exactly winning friends with your romantic choices.
[Caroline is reminded of her indescretion and looks hurt]
Nadia: Isn't that true, Tyler?
Tyler Lockwood: I don't wanna be a part of this.
Caroline Forbes: She's just trying to get under our skin to distract us.
Tyler Lockwood: [shakes his head] From what? This is Matt we're talking about. Did you forget that time he went to Europe with Rebekah after she ran his truck off the road?
Caroline Forbes: [smirks] You're not seriously buying all this?
Tyler Lockwood: A lot easier to buy than other things that have happened.
[Caroline looks hurt]
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): [on cell-phone] Who do you think Stefan loves more? Damon... or Elena?
Nadia: Why are you calling me?
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Damon has been infected with the Ripper virus. And I know exactly where he is. So if I can get Damon to attack me, the only way to save me would be for Stefan to kill him.
Nadia: You want to make Stefan kill his brother. Dark. Even for you.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Thank you. So... how goes it with Matty Blue-Eyes? Dead yet?
Nadia: Still working on it. Good luck with your plan to win Stefan's love.
Nadia: [compelling Matt] Forget everything you're not supposed to know. We partied, we slept together, then I left. Goodbye.
Matt Donovan: Bye.
[Nadia leaves, striding out purposefully]
Caroline Forbes: Going somewhere?
Nadia: Actually, I am. And you're in my way.
Caroline Forbes: Matt, are you okay?
Matt Donovan: Yeah. What's going on in here?
Caroline Forbes: You texted me from Nadia's phone.
[but Matt only remembers good times that never even happened]
Caroline Forbes: So, you compelled him again.
Nadia: [grabs Caroline by throat] And they say blondes are dumb.
Caroline Forbes: What are you doing to him? Tell me!
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Well... I could use a steak.
Nadia: You're chipper. That must mean Damon is dead.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Not quite. In fact, he continues to be the bane of my existence. But... Stefan and I had a moment.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Don't worry. I'll, uh, keep the details to myself. But it definitely reaffirmed his feelings for Elena. I.e., me.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): So It's only a matter of time.
Nadia: Sounds like you're going to get everything you want.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Of course I will. Assuming you took care of the Matt situation.
Nadia: [eyes down] Your secret is safe.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): Perfect. So... I'm in a really good mood now, which means I don't really feel like worrying about whatever's making you mopey.
Nadia: You don't have to worry about me for much longer.
Katherine Pierce (in the body of Elena): What's that supposed to mean?
Nadia: Tyler Lockwood bit me.
[shows Katherine the potentially fatal festering wound on her forearm]
Stefan Salvatore: Hey. When did you get in here?
Caroline Forbes: Oh,
[has glass of wine, clearly not her first]
Caroline Forbes: about one and a half of these ago. You were right. I brought this on myself. I knew the Klaus thing was gonna come with consequences. I guess I have to deal with it and... learn from my mistakes.
Stefan Salvatore: Glad I could help. So did you find Matt?
Caroline Forbes: Yes. And Tyler was right. Nadia's been compelling him to forget things.
Stefan Salvatore: What do you mean, what kind of things?
Caroline Forbes: Who knows? He tried to message me, but Nadia stopped him. "Help K," that's all I got.
[Stefan looks at the text, smirks]
Caroline Forbes: So, you and Elena? What's the verdict?
Stefan Salvatore: Uh, well...
Stefan Salvatore: the verdict is...
Stefan Salvatore: She's acting strange. She kissed me.
Caroline Forbes: Excuse me?
Stefan Salvatore: Yeah. My car broke down, so we got a hotel room so she could shower, and...
Caroline Forbes: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, you guys got a hotel room? With a shower?
Stefan Salvatore: Yeah, but it wasn't my idea. I mean, I stopped it. I couldn't do that to Damon.
Caroline Forbes: Yeah, but she could! I mean, I don't get it, she knows that this would destroy him. What is... what is she doing?
Stefan Salvatore: That's what I mean. It's like she's... given up on Damon, and he thinks that... she was trying to get me to kill him tonight.
Caroline Forbes: No. I mean, she may be mad at him, but she would never want him dead.
Stefan Salvatore: Unless...
[Caroline cocks her head in anticipation]
Stefan Salvatore: Matt texted you "Help K" befkre Nadia stopped him.
Stefan Salvatore: "K" as in Katherine. And when Katherine was dying, Nadia figured out a way to put Katherine's spirit inside Nadia's body.
Caroline Forbes: Yeah, but that didn't happen, because Katherine had a change of heart.
[shakes her head]
Caroline Forbes: No. No. You don't think that... It's... No. It's impossible that she... We would have noticed. It's Elena. We know her!
Caroline Forbes: Oh, my God.
Caroline Forbes: [he brought her a mug of coffee] Thank you.
Caroline Forbes: Mm. It's good coffee.
[he doesn't say anything]
Caroline Forbes: Although I usually take mine with a little more awkward silence.
Tyler Lockwood: Nice try. But you don't take anything... with silence.
