[Willoughby. Pennsylvania.]

(Elena parks the car and goes out. Rebekah follows her)

Rebekah: Why are we stopping?

Elena: We've searched 3 cities in the last 24 hours. I'm sick of top 40 radios, and I smell like leather

Rebekah: And that's my fault? You are the one who stole the list of Katherine's possible whereabouts. Did you ever think that Damon had bad information?

Elena: Have I mentioned I can't stand the sound of your voice?

Rebekah: Too bad. We're not done. Get in. Next town

Elena: In a minute. I'm hungry

Rebekah: We're not here for a pub crawl, Elena. I want the cure. Katherine has it. We don't stop until we find her

Elena: I said, in a minute

(She sees a woman and gets closer)

Woman: Oh, my god. You startled me

Elena: Did I?

(She’s about to bite her)

Woman: Katherine, what are you doing?

(They are surprised)

Elena: You know me?

Woman: Of course. Um, I know most people around here prefer you to feed from the neck, but I asked you to drink from my wrist. Remember?

Rebekah: Conniving little bitch compelled the whole town

Elena: I think we just found Katherine. What's my full name?

Woman: Katherine Pierce. I love the new 'do, by the way

Rebekah: So how do you know Katherine?

Woman: How do I know who?

Elena: Me. How do you know me?

Woman: Small town. Everybody knows everybody

Rebekah: So everyone here knows Katherine

Woman: I'm sorry. I don't know who you're talking about

Rebekah: She compelled people to forget all about her unless she was talking to them herself. Clever girl

Elena: How long have we known each other?

Woman: Uh, it's been a while. I can't remember

Elena: Where do I live? Where do I work?

Woman: I don’t know

Elena: Who do I spend time with? Do I have any friends?

Woman: Well, you said we could all be friends with you as long as we kept your secret

Elena: What secret?

Woman: I… I don't know

[Middle of Nowhere]

(Stefan and Damon have fond the car. Damon takes gasoline jerry cans from Stefan’s car to full his car’s tank)

Damon: If they so much as even scratched the paint on my car…

Stefan: Why don't you just be grateful sheriff Forbes was able to track down the car after you let them, uh... You know, steal it from you

Damon: Remind me to send her some mini-muffins. Do we really need 10 gallons of gas or are you making me just lug this around as punishment?

Stefan: Well, they ditched your car after it ran out of fuel. We got to fill it up. We got a hundred miles before we get to Willoughby

Damon: Yeah, well, I don't remember that name from the list of places that I got in New York

Stefan: Oh, the list. You mean the list they stole from right under your nose after you let your guard down? They'll be there. Sheriff Forbes tracked down the car they stole after yours

Damon: Screw the muffins. I'll get her champagne if Elena is wherever it may be

Stefan: Willoughby, cream corn capital of Pennsylvania. They'll be there. Let's just hope we get to them before they get to the cure

Damon: Ooh, silver lining. If Rebekah takes the cure, then she's mortal. And then we can just kill her right then and there

Stefan: Ooh, dark cloud. Elena stays a vampire forever. Look, why don't you just table the revenge fantasies for now and just keep your eye on the prize? Find Katherine, get the cure, get out before you get your neck snapped. Again

Damon: Believe me, I learned my lesson. Elena without humanity is a stone cold bitch. And I won't trust her until we get the old Elena back

Stefan: Look at that. We're finally on the same page about something

Damon: Look at that

[Klaus’ Mansion]

(Klaus is alone, shirtless and in pain. He has deeply scratched and damaged his back by trying to remove the piece of stake that’s inside. He dislocates his shoulder and screams. Caroline enters)

Caroline: Klaus? We need to talk. What happened to you?

Klaus: Silas. He attacked me. He stabbed me with the white oak stake. A piece of it is still inside me

Caroline: My God, Klaus, that could kill you

Klaus: I certainly feel like I'm dying

(She gets closer and touches his face)

Caroline: And as much as I would love to watch you die, you still haven't found me that cure

(Her attitude changes and he understands that it’s not her)

Klaus: Silas!

Caroline: That's right. Last night I looked like Shane. Today I look like Caroline. And tomorrow, who knows?

Klaus: Show me your real face

Caroline: Now, why would I do that when I can look like whomever I want you to see? Resist me all you want, Klaus, but until you bring me the cure, I will bring you nothing but misery

(“She” disappears)

[Willoughby. Pennsylvania]

(Elena and Rebekah go to the post office and see a man in front if it)

Elena: Hey, excuse me. Um... Did I get any mail today?

Man: What happened to your hair?

Elena: I cut it

Man: In the last two minutes?

Elena: I was here two minutes ago?

Man: Are you feeling ok, Ms. Pierce?

Elena: Yeah. I'm…I'm fine. Um, thanks

(He leaves)

Elena: She was here two minutes ago. That means that she can't be that far. How about you check inside? I'll look in the parking lot

Rebekah: Ok

(They part. Elena thinks she just saw Katherine in a car and gets closer, while hiding, but it’s not her. Katherine then grabs her and strangles her)

Katherine: I'm impressed. I never thought you would find me here. Oh, well. It's a beautiful place to die

(She’s about to kill her but Rebekah intervenes and pushes her on the ground)

Rebekah: I couldn't agree more. You've chosen a beautiful place to die

(Rebekah, Elena and Katherine are in a dinner, sitting at a table)

Elena: Where's the cure?

Katherine: What, no "I'm here to avenge my annoying little brother" speech?

Elena: People die. We move on

Katherine: After turning off our humanity switch. So sad for the boys, though. Their special snowflake of human frailty... Gone. Well, if we're gonna be a while, I'm gonna go grab some menus

(Rebekah sticks a fork in her hand)

Rebekah: You're not going anywhere

Katherine: I forgot how charming you were

Rebekah: I'm surprised you remember me at all, seeing as though you were so busy wedging yourself between my brothers

(The waitress arrives and sees Katherine and Elena)

Waitress: Oh, my god. What happened?

(Elena kicks Katherine under the table. Katherine compels the waitress)

Katherine: I'm fine, Jolene. You didn't see anything

(The waitress leaves)

Elena: Every minute you two waste with your yapping is another minute we give Stefan and Damon to find us

(Rebekah grabs Katherine’s face and tries to compel her)

Rebekah: Where's the cure?

Katherine: I'm sorry. I'm on vervain

Rebekah: Oh, I get to torture it out of you. Fun

Katherine: Why do you two want it anyway?

Rebekah: The question is, why do you want it? Let me guess. To kill Niklaus

Katherine: I've spent the last 500 years running from your big brother. I have no intention of being within sniffing distance of him. But since it can be used against him, I'm sure he's just itching to get his hands on it. I give him the cure, he gives me my freedom

Elena: Ohh, you poor victim. Where's the part of your plan where you screw us over and somebody dies?

Katherine: I have no reason to screw you over. I know you don't believe me, but it is the truth. People change. I'm not the girl you think I am

(Rebekah smiles and jumps on her. She searches her pocket and finds a phone and throws it at Elena)

Katherine: I don't have it on me

Rebekah: I didn't think you did, but I'm sure there's something in that that can help us find it

(Elena looks into the phone)

Elena: Who's Em?

Katherine: A friend

Elena: It says here you're meeting at 2:00. I guess I'll just have to meet Em myself

(Rebekah smiles)

[Klaus’s Mansion]

(Klaus is still in pain. Caroline enters the mansion)

Caroline: I got your 50 bajillion messages. This better be life and death

Klaus: Go away

Caroline: Klaus? Where are you?

(She enters and sees him)

Caroline: What happened to you?

Klaus: I need more time. Stop hounding me!

Caroline: I'm hounding you?! I am supposed to be running 3 different prom committees right now and you keep phone stalking me

Klaus: Caroline. Is it really you? Prove it to me

Caroline: Ok. I don't know if this is some new way of flirting, but it sucks. And I have more important things to do

(She’s about to go)

Klaus: Wait, please. Silas. He stabbed me with the white oak stake. There's a little piece of it stuck inside me

Caroline: Why would Silas attack you?

Klaus: Well, I was in no position to ask questions. Suffice it to say, I'm hurt. So you can understand why I called you

Caroline: You ran Tyler out of town, you killed his mother, and you think I'm the person to call for help?

Klaus: If I die, you, Tyler, all of your friends die with me

Caroline: What do you want me to do?

Klaus: Well, it's quite simple, really. I need you to cut the stake out of me

(She follows his gaze and sees a pliers on the ground)

[Willoughby. Pennsylvania]

(Stefan and Damon have found Elena’s and Rebekah’ car)

Damon: Something's not right. Katherine Pierce does not hole up in hicks town, p-a

Stefan: Well, this is definitely the car they stole. We're in the right place

Damon: Points to them for their choice in vehicles

Stefan: So let me ask you something. What happens when we find Elena? How do we get her back to Mystic Falls? I mean, she's not exactly gonna go quietly. And she has an original vampire as her bodyguard

Damon: We do whatever we have to do. I don't care if we have to throw Rebekah under a school bus and wrap Elena in a burlap sack. We do whatever we have to do

Stefan: I’m serious

Damon: I am, too. I don't care what Elena wants right now. She's this close to going off the rails for good. And that ain't happening. She's a pain enough as it is

Stefan: So what happened to the guy who thought Elena should embrace being a vampire, let the chips fall where they may?

Damon: That guy got his neck snapped in New York. And this guy is royally pissed off

(Elena comes out of the restrooms and rejoins Katherine and Rebekah. She’s changed her hair)

Elena: What do you think?

Rebekah: It's close. Not quite slutty enough. I think you need more eyeliner

Elena: I'm gonna need your clothes

Katherine: Yeah. That's gonna happen…

Elena: Fine. Your bracelet, watch, earrings. Hand them over

(She removes the fork. Katherine hands her jewelry to Elena)

Elena: And your other bracelet

Katherine: That's my daylight bracelet. It's daytime outside. I'm gonna need it. Besides, it's not gonna work on you

Elena: Fine. I really am gonna need that jacket, though

(Katherine is not convinced. Elena looks at Rebekah. She grabs Katherine by the hair)

Katherine: All right. Fine, fine, fine

(They exchange jackets)

Katherine: This will never work, you know? The bad haircut, the doe eyes… You'll never pass for me

(Elena mimics her)

Elena: You'll never pass for me

Rebekah: Throatier and more mannish

Elena: You'll never pass for me

Katherine: You two are pathetic

(Elena mimics her again)

Elena: You two are pathetic

Rebekah: Oh, perfect. Just the right level of contempt and hidden insecurity

Elena: Almost there. Something's missing

(She’s thinking and she finally looks at Katherine’s shoes)

Elena: Your shoes. I want your shoes

(Elena is alone, waiting for em. She’s wearing Katherine’s shoes and jacket)

Elena: Come on, Em

(Rebekah is alone with Katherine in the dinner)

Rebekah: Mm. You know, it's funny. I've always been a little envious of the legend that is Katherine Pierce, the way you could wrap a man around your little finger, the way Elijah betrayed Klaus for you, the way the Salvatore brothers stumbled head over heels for you. And yet here we are all these years later in a town that you've had to compel into liking you. I'm sorry. I shouldn't laugh. It's really more sad than funny

Katherine: You know you can't split the cure with Elena, right?

Rebekah: She doesn't want to

Katherine: Oh, no? But you do. You want to take it. Are you really that dumb or just naturally blonde?

Rebekah: I want a normal life again

Katherine: You mean you want a do-over. Well, guess what. You can't have it. The cure will only take away your immortality. Everything else you hate about yourself, you'll still wake up with that in the morning. And you won't even be able to compel yourself a friend

(She tries to eat a piece of Rebekah’s cake but Rebekah catches her arm and twists it. Stefan and Damon sit down next to them)

Stefan: Ladies, playing nice?

Katherine: There goes the neighborhood

Damon: I see you got Katherine already. You're losing your touch, evil one

Stefan: Where's Elena?

(Elena is still waiting)

Elijah: Katerina

Elena: Elijah. You're a little late, aren't you?

Elijah: You colored your hair. I like it

Elena: Thank you. I was actually gonna…

(He kisses her)

Elijah: I missed you

Elena: And I've missed you

Elijah: This is an interesting little town you've chosen to settle down in. So do you have it with you?

Elena: Do I have what?

Elijah: The cure

Elena: It's in a safe place. Why don't I go and get it and then I'll bring it back?

(She’s about to go but he catches her arm)

Elijah: Where's Katherine, Elena?

(Katherine is smiling. The Salvatore’s are still here)

Rebekah: So let me get this straight, I tell you where Elena is, you shove the cure down her throat, and then I end up in a box, right? I don't think so

Damon: What about you over there, smiley? Do you know where she is?

Katherine: I can give you a hint. Start by looking at the town morgue. She's probably dead. She went to meet up with a friend of mine. You may know him… An original brother. Impeccable taste

Rebekah: Elijah?

Damon: Elijah's here?

Stefan: Well, you sort of have to question Elijah's impeccable taste if he's friends with you

Katherine: Oh, when I say friend, I mean "Friend"

(They understand what she means and they’re all disgusted)

Katherine: It probably took him about 10 seconds to realize that she wasn't me, at which point he probably yanked her heart right out of her chest

Stefan: All right. Where are they?

(She doesn’t answer and smiles. He looks at Rebekah)

Stefan: Rebekah, you do realize if something should happen to Elena, you have no chance of finding the cure, right?

Rebekah: Fine. They were supposed to meet at the gazebo by the park

Stefan: I'll go talk to Elijah

Rebekah: You deal with Elijah. Katherine will take us to the cure

Katherine: No, she won't. The cure's my one chance to win my freedom back from Klaus

Damon: You're gonna broker a deal with Klaus?

Stefan: No. She's gonna get Elijah to broker a deal for her. That's why you need your little friend, isn't it? Some things never change, Katherine

Damon: Nope

Katherine: Fine. Move. You have to follow me

[Klaus’s Mansion]

(Caroline is looking inside Klaus’s wound with the pliers)

Caroline: Oh, my god. You do have a heart. Oh, my bad. It's just a bloody rib

Klaus: Well, I'm glad you're finding my misery so amusing

Caroline: I swear there's nothing in here. And if you think I'm having fun, you're insane

Klaus: You killed 12 witches for your friend Bonnie. You can't even get your hands a little dirty for me. Here I thought we were becoming friends

Caroline: Well, you thought wrong

(She hurts him while looking into the wound. He screams)

Caroline: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry

(She stops)

Caroline: You know what? I'm not sorry. You deserve to suffer for everything that you've done. So today, we're gonna do things my way. You want my help? You let Tyler come back to town, and give me your word that you will not hurt him

[Willoughby. Pennsylvania]

(Stefan goes to the park but Elena and Elijah are nowhere to be seen. He takes his phone and calls someone)

Elijah: Katerina?

Stefan: Hello. Elijah?

Elijah: Where is Katherine?

Stefan: Where's Elena?

Elijah: Safe. How long she remains so depends upon you

Stefan: Well, I guess the same goes for Katherine

Elijah: Katherine can take care of herself against the two of you

Stefan: Oh. You mean the three of us 'cause your little sister decided to join team good guys for the time being

Elijah: Put her on the phone

Stefan: Oh, she's not here right now. I left her with Damon and Katherine

Elijah: Tell me where they are

Stefan: Relax. No one's gonna get hurt as long as Katherine hands over the cure

Elijah: Do you understand how much my sister despises Katherine? I assure you, Rebekah will end her the moment she ceases to be of use

Stefan: Well, just tell me where you are, and we can talk this through

Elijah: You listen to me very carefully, Stefan. If anything whatsoever happens to Katherine, I will descend upon Elena

(He hangs up)

(Elena is with Elijah in a remote place)

Elena: You're both idiots

Elijah: Excuse me?

Elena: Ugh. What happened to you, Elijah? I mean, I thought you were supposed to be a man of honor. And yet you've been hooking up with Katherine this entire time?

Elijah: Well, I suppose this man of honor always shared a connection with Katherine. She contacted me when she learned about the cure. We thought we could be of mutual use to one another

Elena: "Of mutual use"? Please. You fell for her trap just like every other one of those idiots

Elijah: You underestimate me, Elena. I know who she is. I know what she's done

Elena: And you think she's changed? She's playing you. She lied to you, Elijah

Elijah: She didn't lie to me about your transformation. You're not just a vampire, though, are you? There's something else.'re not yourself. You've abandoned your emotions. Why?

Elena: My brother's dead. Your girlfriend killed him

(He seems surprised)

Elena: You didn't know? Of course you didn't

Elijah: She lied

Elena: I hate to say I told you so, but... Duh!

(Rebekah, Damon and Katherine enter her house)

Damon: No sudden moves. No tricks either. No katherine-ing. A quilt and a fish aquarium. Who the hell are you?

Rebekah: A very old lady with dreadful taste

(Katherine opens a safe and looks inside)

Katherine: It's gone. The cure, it was in the safe, but it's not there

Damon: Not falling for it. Where is it, Katherine?

Katherine: I swear it was in the safe

Damon: What just like Elijah's really your boyfriend and this is really your life? And for all we know, this isn't even your house. It doesn't look like the Katherine I know

Katherine: Maybe you don't know Katherine at all. Did it even occur to you that you have no idea who I really am?

Damon: Did it even occur to you that you're not that deep? This whole small-town girl thing, we know it's an act

Rebekah: Where is the cure?

(Katherine doesn’t answer and smiles. Rebekah rushes towards her but Damon stops her)

Damon: Whoa, whoa. Hang on. We need her alive. The cure's not here. You check upstairs. I'll check down. I got this

(Rebekah leaves the room)

Damon: So if I was a paranoid, distrustful sociopath, where would I keep my most prized possession?

Katherine: This should be fun

Damon: Because I'd want it to be close, but not on me. Accessible but not obvious. I'd want to keep it safe, but not so safe that it'd be too difficult to grab and run

(He looks at the aquarium)

Damon: Well, that is a fancy little treasure chest in a tank with no fish. I think I'm gonna have to check that out

(He swoops his arm inside but it’s full of vervain)

Damon: Vervain water. Looks like we have a winner

(He removes his arm and takes a landing net but Katherine jumps on him, puts his head in the aquarium and throws him on the floor. His face burns and he screams. She takes the cure inside and is about to leave but Rebekah stops her)

Rebekah: Give it to me or you're dead

Katherine: You're gonna kill me anyway. So what's more important to you, huh? Killing me or getting the cure?

(She throws the cure in the air and leaves. Rebekah catches it and looks at it in wonder)

Damon: Look, Rebekah... Don't even think about it. Let's just talk about this, like the two rational vampires that we are. Rebekah?

Rebekah: Oh, give it a rest. Me taking this cure is the best thing that'll ever happen to you

Damon: Don't do anything stupid

Rebekah: Admit it. You don't want human Elena running back to Stefan whilst you're left out in the cold again. Go on, Damon. Tell me why you want Elena to have the cure

(He doesn’t answer and she smiles. She opens it and Stefan enters. She drinks it)

Stefan: No!

(She collapses on the couch)

[Klaus’s mansion]

(Klaus is in pain. Caroline just stands, looking at him)

Klaus: I can feel the splinters moving towards my heart. Help me!

Caroline: Your word first

Klaus: And what makes you think I won't simply break my word?

Caroline: You want to be friends? Friendship—stage one. Show me that I can trust you

Klaus: I saved your life... twice

Caroline: Because you put it in danger... twice. Why can't you just do something decent for once?

Klaus: Because Tyler Lockwood tried to kill me

Caroline: We've all tried to kill you. And you've tried to kill most of us. How do you think that you deserve my friendship when you've done nothing to earn it?

Klaus: I will not have my hand forced by you or anyone else!

Caroline: What is wrong with you? I'm reaching out to you despite everything that you have done, and you still can't get out of your own way. God! I feel sorry for you

(She’s about to leave)

Klaus: Don't turn your back on me!

Caroline: I should have turned my back on you ages ago!

Klaus: It's gone

Caroline: What?

Klaus: The pain. The pain is gone. It was… it was never there. He got in my head. Silas... got inside my head. You took my mind off it. You brought me back, Caroline

Caroline: If Silas can make you, of all people, believe that you're dying... What can he do to the rest of us?

[Willoughby. Pennsylvania]

(Rebekah is still unconscious and Stefan is next to her. Damon is healed.)

Stefan: Did you even try to stop her?

Damon: You forgot the part where I was bobbing for boxes in vervain water

Stefan: All you had to do was stall her, Damon

Damon: Sorry. It's Rebekah. I didn't have a pony to distract her, Stefan

Stefan: You let her take it, didn't you? You were never on my side. Now Elena will be a vampire for the rest of her life just like you wanted

(Rebekah wakes up)

(Elena is still with Elijah)

Elijah: I know what it feels like to lose a brother. I'm sorry for your pain. I... I only hope that you can find your way back to yourself someday

Elena: Just like you hope Katherine will find her way back? You still think that innocent girl you saved from Klaus ages ago is in there somewhere

Elijah: I'd like to think so, yes

Elena: She's not. She's a monster now, Elijah. The sweet peasant girl you fell in love with way back when is dead and she's not coming back

Elijah: I'm not a fool, Elena. Of course this has occurred to me, but what kind of man would I be if I didn't try to find my Katerina beneath this Katherine facade?

Elena: You boys are all the same. Damon and Stefan still think that the girl they love is still in here somewhere, too

Elijah: You can't blame them for having hope, Elena. It'd be a shame if the world lost a soul as compassionate as yours

Elena: "Your compassion is a gift, Elena. Carry it with you always and forever." I remember reading that in a letter once

Elijah: Well, the writer sounds positively gifted. I'm sure he meant what he wrote

Elena: I'm sure he did. And it felt good to watch that letter burn along with my old life and along with Jeremy's body

(Her neck is broken and she falls on the ground. Katherine is behind, smiling)

Katherine: Sorry. I got held up

(Rebekah is awake. Stefan and Damon look at her)

Stefan: How do you feel?

Rebekah: I…I feel good. I... I feel great. I feel alive

Damon: Slight problem with being alive… I can kill you now

(He throws a paper knife at her but she catches it easily. She bleeds and then the cut heals. She can’t believe it)

Rebekah: I'm still a vampire. The cure didn't work

Stefan: It worked just like she wanted it to. The cure was a fake. It must have been a concentrated shot of vervain or something

Damon: Katherine…

(Katherine is about to leave without glancing at Elena. Elijah is bent next to her body. Katherine stops and looks at him)

Katherine: Oh, come on. She could use a nap. It must be exhausting trying to be me

Elijah: You killed Jeremy Gilbert

Katherine: Yes, Elijah. I killed Jeremy Gilbert. A bombshell, I'm sure she just couldn't wait to drop on you. Ironic, since she supposedly doesn't care about anything

Elijah: I care. Do you honestly feel nothing for this girl, a girl fated to live the same life that you've endured? And now you've just taken away the last of her family, just as yours was taken away from you

Katherine: Uh, why are you looking at me like I enjoyed it? Jeremy was collateral damage. I was doing what I needed to do to survive

Elijah: Is that what I am, too? A means of survival?

Katherine: Don't let sweet little Elena get to you. She hates me. She wants you to turn against me and convince you that I can't be trusted

Elijah: I asked you a question

Katherine: No. Of course you're not a means of survival. You looked out for me when I had no one. You're giving me a second chance now when no one else will. I love you Elijah. You don't believe me

Elijah: I want to. It's my disease. I just keep wanting to believe you, but how can I when at every turn; you give me reason to doubt you? I don't know you. I don't know that I ever will

Katherine: Wait. You gave me your word that you would talk to Klaus. I… I can't make a deal without you

Elijah: Good-bye, Katherine

(He leaves)

(Katherine is at a house. The woman that Elena spoke to earlier opens the door)

Woman: Katherine, hey. What brings you by at this hour?

Katherine: I came to retrieve my package

Woman: Oh. Of course. Like I said, your secret would be safe here

(She goes inside and comes back with a little box. She gives it to Katherine. She opens it and the cure is inside)

Woman: Hey, um... all the secrecy. Can I ask, what is it?

Katherine: It's my freedom

(Elijah is walking alone. Katherine rejoins him)

Katherine: Wait

Elijah: What do you want?

Katherine: To tell you that you're right. I've spent so much time running and lying just to survive that I don't… I'm starting to believe my own lies. I don't even remember who I was when we first met. And I want to find out

(She takes the box)

Elijah: You have the cure

Katherine: Yeah. And I can shove this down Klaus's throat and try to kill him, but even if I manage to do it... I'd lose you. And I don't want that to happen

Elijah: How do I know this isn't another lie? Katherine Pierce deceiving yet another man

Katherine: Because I meant what I said about my feelings for you. And I'd like to think that you feel something for me, too. I need you to trust me. I want you to trust me... Just like I'm trusting you

(She gives him the box)

Katherine: You don't owe me anything. I'm gonna let you decide where we go from here

(She leaves and he opens the box)

(Elijah goes to his car. Rebekah is there, waiting for him)

Rebekah: You and Katherine? And I thought you were the smart brother

Elijah: You don't have a smart brother. It turns out I'm just as stupid as the rest of you

Rebekah: Why don't you just give me the cure so I can judge you silently elsewhere?

Elijah: And what could you possibly want with the cure?

Rebekah: I want to be human again

Elijah: How do you know that being human is the answer you're looking for? I mean, it's nothing but a romantic notion. The grass won't necessarily be greener, Rebekah

Rebekah: You're probably right. But I don't care. I want to live a simple life as a normal person. And when it ends, it ends. We've had 20 lifetimes together, Elijah. Isn't that enough?

Elijah: I just don't understand. I mean, why must you always consider our family a burden? Always and forever. I mean, those words are as important to me today as they ever were

Rebekah: You will always be my brother. And I will never stop loving you. But now it's time for me to live and die the way that I choose, not the way you and Nik want me to. Please. Please just give me the cure

(The phone rings. She answers)

Rebekah: What do you want, Nik?

Klaus: An update on our search for the elusive cure

Rebekah: Let's just say that things have gotten complicated. In fact, why don't you speak to one of those complications? Here

(She hands the phone to Elijah)

Elijah: Complication speaking

Klaus: Big brother. At last you join the fray

Elijah: Somebody had to take charge. And now that I have, I've got the cure and I'm bringing it back to Mystic Falls

Klaus: With a long list of demands, I assume

Elijah: Not that long

Klaus: Come home, brother. We'll settle this like family

[Klaus’ Mansion]

(He hangs up. Caroline is still there)

Caroline: I used all your bleach

Klaus: Thank you for helping me

Caroline: Yeah. Well, if you need anything else... don't call me. I have a prom to plan

Klaus: Friends then?

Caroline: Are you gonna let Tyler come back into town?

Klaus: You might have noticed... I'm not exactly scouring the earth for him, am I?

(She looks at him and leaves. He smiles)

[Willoughby. Pennsylvania]

(Stefan and Damon are walking)

Damon: All right. You're right. I let Rebekah take the cure. I thought for a second… I mean, literally just a second… if Rebekah takes this, then all my problems go away. And I couldn't think of one good reason to give it to Elena. And then Rebekah took it. And I realized how badly I screwed up

Stefan: So what's your point, Damon?

Damon: My point is, I'm sorry, ok? I had a moment of weakness, Stefan. It's my thing. It's like you and I falling for the same girl. It's our thing

Stefan: Was our thing. Look, we've been making the same mistakes for 150 years. We can judge Katherine all we want, but we keep repeating our own history just like she is. Nothing ever changes. It has to stop, Damon

Damon: What are you talking about?

Stefan: I'm done. I can't keep reliving my life like this. I owe Elena her shot at being normal again. Once we give her the cure, I'm getting her out of my life and I'm getting a life of my own

Damon: Okay. Okay, let's just...get the cure and then we'll talk about you riding off into the sunset all by you lonesome

Stefan: You still want to get the cure. Even if that means you might lose her

Damon: It's a chance I'm willing to take, Stefan

Stefan: Guess all we have to do is convince her

(They enter a dinner. Elena is sitting alone at a table)

Waitress: Sit anywhere you like

(They rejoin Elena at her table)

Stefan: Are you all right?

Damon: What's up with the silent treatment? You are the one that texted us, wanted to meet up

Elena: You know I don't want the cure. You need to know that I never will and I'm done talking about it. So... Will you accept that? And let me be who I am or not?

Damon: Yeah, no

Stefan: Elena, this isn't you

Elena: It is now. And you two really need to accept it. 'Cause if you don't, there will be consequences

Stefan: Listen, I was in the exact same situation that you are in right now. My emotions were off, I wasn't me. And you refused to accept that. You didn't give up on me. You didn't stop until you pulled me back

(The waitress comes back)

Waitress: Let me just top that up for you

Elena: Thanks

(Elena gets up and snaps her neck, killing her. The boys are shocked)

Damon: Oh…!

Elena: Like I said, consequences. That's one body you are responsible for. If you keep trying to fix me, there'll be a second, a twentieth, and a hundred. It's your choice

(She leaves. Damon looks at Stefan)

Damon: Still want to ride off into the sunset?
