Hell Hath No Fury
Armed by Faith is the second episode in Season 4, and 68th overall.
Elena pays a dangerous visit to the original's mansion, while Jeremy comes back from death and struggles to live. When all efforts fail to fix him, Jeremy starts a fight that takes place in his own mind. Caroline receives a call from Bonnie's father, but her visit takes a deadly turn when Bonnie loses control of her newfound powers. A heartbroken Caroline seeks consolation from Tyler, who doesn't take the news very well. As Jeremy begins losing his determination, Elena makes a violent confrontation with Rebekah. Finally Stefan and Damon make a shocking discovery, and worry about its inevitable consequences.
|Sun was about to rise. It could be said that it was half past five or almost six in the morning. Caroline was at the Gilbert house, helping Stefan and Damon to clean the house Elena messed up. Stefan was deliberately staying away from the blood lake in the living room. Jeremy was taken to the couch and his wound was cleaned. The silence was giving away that they were all in shock, that Elena Gilbert would and even did kill her own brother.
Caroline: "So you don't know where she is."
Stefan: "No. She ran after she turned it off last night. I tried to follow her, but.."
Suddenly he was interrupted by someone gasping. To their surprise, Jeremy came back to life. They all went near him.
Caroline: "Oh my god, Jeremy!"
Jeremy was breathing heavily. He was looking very sick, and even though it was only seconds since he woke up, he was sweating. He tried to stand up, but suddenly he was forced back down with a strong impulse.
Damon: "Hey hey hey! Easy, buddy!"
Jeremy suddenly moved his head off of the couch and threw up blood. They all took a step back reflectively.
Caroline: "Oh my.."
Jeremy: "What is happening!?"
Damon: "That damn ring will never work properly!" (Damon bit his wrist and offered blood to Jeremy) "Here."
Stefan: "I'm even surprised it worked, he's supernatural."
As soon as Jeremy drank Damon's blood, he coughed harder and puked more blood. Stefan, who was already struggling, started showing his vampire veins.
Caroline: (realized he was struggling) "Stefan, get out of here!" (as he did what he was told, she turned to Damon) "What is going on!?"
Damon: "I have no idea, but I know someone who might."
Caroline: "Creepy doctor?"
Damon: "Creepy, hot.."
Caroline: "Okay, let's go!"
Jeremy was too weak that he could barely move. Caroline and Damon carried him to the car. And as soon as they got him in the car, Stefan drove to the hospital.
Rebekah: "Elijah, I'm taking the car."
Kol: "I need the car!"
Elijah: "When will you come?"
Rebekah: "Late. Don't wait up."
Upon this Elena grinned dangerously. Soon Rebekah walked out and went directly to the car. But before she got in, she felt someone was behind her. With a quick move she turned around and saw Elena, but before she could move a muscle, Elena stabbed a stake to her heart. She gasped, and instinctively held Elena's neck. But Elena broke free of it like it was nothing. Rebekah then lost balance and fell, and slowly got neutralized.
Elena: (while holding her, as she fell) "Easy, easy. Okay."
Then she heard Kol was coming outside. She disappeared within a moment with Rebekah. When Kol finally walked out, he saw the car was still there.
Kol: "Nice." (yelled randomly) "Thank you, sister!"
Suddenly she felt a sharp pain in her arm, and when she tried to move them, the other got the same pain too. Realizing in shock that she can't move her arms, she looked and saw that she was chained and riveted to a chair. And the rivets had hooks at the end, ensuring Rebekah would stay at where she is even if she could break free of the rivets. Rebekah instinctively tried to move her arm, but realized in pain that the rivets were dipped in vervain. As she hissed with pain, she randomly looked around. There was a silhouette in the shadows. She looked at it for a moment. Then finally Elena moved and revealed herself. Seeing the literally emotionless look on her face, Rebekah started panting with fear.
Meredith: "He seems perfectly healthy."
Damon: "Except he puked blood this morning. Twice!"
Meredith: "I understand. But I double checked the results. He's just fine."
Stefan: "What is wrong with him, Meredith? The last time you hid something, it ended bad, so tell us before it's too late."
Meredith: "I'm not hiding anything. Trust me, I learned my lesson."
Stefan: "So what is wrong with him?"
Meredith: (shook her head) "I have no idea."
Caroline: "But you have to."
Stefan: "You were our last hope."
Meredith: "I only know to use vampire blood to heal patients. Since you say his system rejects it, I don't know how to help him."
Caroline: (looked at Jeremy through the window, and spoke after a disturbing silence) "Maybe we're not supposed to." (they looked at her) "You said he was supernatural."
Stefan understood she is talking to him.
Caroline: "What if he wasn't?" (looked at Stefan) "Bonnie's magic made him see ghosts, but he was still human. So what if he was part supernatural?"
Damon: "And what? Part human?"
Stefan: "If that's right, when he died with the ring, it must've brought his human side back."
Caroline: "But his supernatural side died."
Stefan: "And now his dead side is trying to take him down completely."
Meredith: "If that's the case, then there is nothing we can do about it." (they all looked at her) "His spirit is torn. This is a battle within Jeremy, that none of us can interfere. He has to do it on his own. It is himself, at the end, who will decide whether he will live or die." (upon this they all moved uncomfortably) "Let me know if there is any change."
Stefan nodded, and Meredith left.
Father: (angrily) "Where have you been?"
Bonnie: (closed the door carelessly and started walking to her room) "At a friend's."
Father: "Who? Bonnie Bennett, I asked you a question! What is this look, what have you been doing all night? What is this irresponsibility!?"
Bonnie: (turned to him) "Shut up! Jesus! Where were you all this time? All of a sudden you decide to me my dad after seventeen years? You're just pathetic! Leave me alone."
He was shocked to hear these from Bonnie. As she turned around and walked away, he tried to say something, but words just didn't go out of his mouth. Bonnie was grinning weirdly.
Damon: "Come on little Gilbert. Wake up."
The voice echoed in Jeremy's mind and he opened his eyes. But it was like he woke up to a different reality. He was still in the hospital room, but when he looked around, he wasn't connected to any device, or there was no one around. Everywhere was frighteningly quiet. He sat up in his bed, then stood up and opened his door.
Jeremy: (to the corridor) "Hello?" (except the awkward echo, there was no reply) "Is anybody here?"
After the last echo, Jeremy decided he was on his own. While being careful, he started walking at the corridor. He looked out of the window, but nothing could be seen. Not because it was too dark to see anything, but because there was nothing out there to see. He freaked out and walked to the other direction.
Again the echo replied him. Upon this Jeremy kept walking, until at the half way the lights went out completely. Jeremy started panting. But then the elevator opened like a door with white light at the end of the road. Jeremy had nothing to do but to walk towards it. When he finally entered the elevator, the white light became so intense that he got blinded for a second. Then he opened his eyes, and realized he is now in an endless and completely white room. He startled with a voice from behind.
Familiar female voice: "Hello, Jeremy."
Jeremy quickly turned around and saw Esther.
Esther: "It's very nice to see you."
Jeremy: " How?"
Esther: "You're dreaming, Jeremy."
Jeremy: "I am dreaming? About you?"
Esther: "Not exactly. I am real. We are in your mind."
Jeremy: "Then this is not a dream."
Esther: "However you wish to think. I just needed to talk to you in private. And I imagine this is as private as it gets."
Jeremy: "You're the reason the ring didn't work!" (Esther moved her head, not nodding, but she was confirming) "I could die!"
Esther: "That was a risk I was willing to take. Although I hope that when I explain my reasons, you will understand." (Jeremy looked at her. He didn't say anything, but the way he was looking was indicating that he was listening to her) "You must realize that I am not the bad guy, Jeremy. I made some mistakes along the way."
Jeremy: "Like when you created vampires."
Esther: "Exactly. I'm glad we're on the same page about that."
Jeremy: "Yeah, we are."
Esther: "I was desperate to save my children. But after witnessing the pain they caused in a thousand years, I hate what I turned my children into. Now I'm desperate to save the world. I know it is all on me. So it falls to me to undo it. But I can't do it alone."
Jeremy: "You want to turn me into the thing that Alaric was!"
Esther: "We all made sacrifices along the way. If we succeed, your's will be the last."
Jeremy: "Is that what you told Alaric?"
Esther: "No. I simply reminded him of what vampires took away from him. He was more than willing to comply."
Jeremy looked at her hesitantly.
Rebekah: "What're you gonna do?"
Elena: "Well, at first, I wanted to kill you. You know, the no muss no fuss kinda death. I just had to find a white oak stake, and drive it through your heart. Just like that. This could have been all over when I stabbed you in front of your house. So I looked for Alaric's white oak stake, you know the one that your mother prepared for him. I know Damon has it, but I couldn't find it." (turned to Rebekah) "So I decided to go for the hard way."
Rebekah: (started breathing heavily as Elena put on the gloves) "Hard way?"
Elena: (turned a stake at her hand professionally, then looked at Rebekah with a dangerous smile) "I am going to stab you, as fast and much as I can." (put the stake's sharp point on Rebekah and moved it over her body) "That will, at one point, break your strength. Then I will be able to break through your chest, and rip your heart out!"
Rebekah: "There is no way that will work."
Elena: "Well, I guess that's for me to find out." (looked at Rebekah disturbingly cheerfully) "And I guess for you too!" (laughed)
Rebekah: "You are sick!"
Elena: (with a creepy melody) "I'm not the one who is sitting there, so I'd better watch my words."
Rebekah: "That way you will show me mercy? We both know that's not gonna happen! You want revenge, because I killed you!"
Elena: (dipped the stake in vervain) "Good. Means we can skip the "What did I do to you" part."
Rebekah: "I know what I did. But it was for a good cause. Alaric would have killed the entire vampire race! People die everyday, you're not special. But now you're pissing me off! You know that you won't be able to kill me. And once I'm free of this, I will rip your spine out!"
Elena: "Do you think I'm an idiot?" (took the stake out of vervain and left the vervain to the ground) "Look around, sweetheart! You're hopeless, and you're throwing feeble threats. But I've done my homework. You're not going anywhere!"
Rebekah: "How long do you think will take before my brothers realize that I'm missing? And I assure you once they suspect, there's only so much places they'll look for me!"
Elena: "And I assure you it won't take that long. Don't you remember? You told them you'll be late, so they won't be expecting you anytime soon. Which gives me enough time to do whatever I want to do with you."
Rebekah: "You're still not gonna kill me."
Elena: "I'm not?"
Rebekah: "Yea you won't. Because I was the one turned Mary Porter! I am the sire of your bloodline!"
Elena: (chuckled) "We both know you're not, Rebekah. You're just like your brother. You won't hesitate to lie when it comes to your pathetic little life. But I learned a few tricks from your other brother. He once listened to my heart beats and knew that I was lying to him. It's quite interesting actually, because right now I can seriously hear that you are lying to me."
Then she came near Rebekah with her vampire speed and raised the stake.
Rebekah: (with an effort to cover her fear) "I will not scream!"
Elena: (emotionlessly) "I will make you!"
Then stabbed her with all her strength. As the vervained stake pierced her body, Rebekah's screams could be heard from the outside of the house.
Father: "Great. Thank you!"
Caroline: "It's alright. What's wrong?"
Father: "Come in first." (after he said it, Caroline walked in while looking at the threshold, indicating she wasn't invited here before. After she came in, he closed the door.) "I'm sorry for calling you like that, but I didn't know what else to do."
Caroline: "You said something's wrong with Bonnie."
Father: "Well something's awfully wrong, but she won't talk to me. I'm not sure I'd be delighted to hear what she has to say anyway. But I thought maybe she would talk to someone she will feel more comfortable around, a friend. You are the closest thing she has to a sister, Caroline. So can you at least, you know.."
Father: ".. talk to her?"
Caroline: "Of course!" (turned towards Bonnie's room and looked at him) "I'll just.." (he nodded anxiously. Then watched Caroline as she went to Bonnie's room and knocked her door) "Bonnie?" (she and Bonnie's father looked at and nodded to each other. Then he went to the living room. After he's gone, Caroline knocked again) "Bonnie, it's alright. I'm coming in, I'm alone." (then she opened the door. As soon as she entered, she saw Bonnie sitting on her bed, moving back and forth like she was in some sort of trance. She was wearing her shirt only, her legs were entirely visible. Caroline freaked out by this sight, and spoke anxiously) "Bonnie?"
Bonnie slowly looked at her. She looked exhausted, and awkwardly and frighteningly cheerful.
Bonnie: "Oh, hey! You're back!"
Caroline: (confused) "Uh huh."
Bonnie: "Please, come in. I missed you."
Caroline: "Are you alright?"
Bonnie: "I saw you, I'm better now."
Caroline: "Bonnie, what's going on?"
Bonnie: (looked at her bed or her legs, or some random point on the bed) "What're you doing here, Caroline?
Caroline: "I was worried about you. Your dad called me and.."
Bonnie: (interrupted her with a weak chuckle) "Heh. My loving father. (looked at Caroline) "Would you ever come here if he didn't call you? How long has it been, three days? Four? Or do you only worry about me when you need a witch?"
Caroline: "You know that's not true!" (Bonnie blinked slowly, then looked at the other side of the room. Caroline went near her and sat on the bed looking at her) "Something's wrong, Bonnie! Talk to me!"
Bonnie: (after a brief but creepy silence) "I broke up with Jamie."
Caroline: (closed her eyes with disbelief) "Oh my.." (to Bonnie) "What happened?"
Bonnie: "Nothing.. but.. all night.. endless.. sex."
Caroline tried to hide her happiness, but couldn't prevent a barely smile.
Bonnie: "You would do anything for a man like that, wouldn't you?" (Caroline looked at her shocked) "He's boring. He had to go."
Caroline: "What're you.. Bonnie, you're not talking like you, this isn't you!"
Bonnie: (looked at her dangerously) "How well do you think you know me.." (her eyes wen't complete black) ".. vampire!?"
Caroline freaked out by this sight. But before she could run or even do anything, Bonnie pushed her with her powers. Caroline crashed the dresser. Mirror broke, and Caroline fell on the floor along with its shards. Then looked at Bonnie.
Caroline: "Bonnie!" (but before she can talk more, Bonnie pushed and slammed her to the opposite wall. She remained hanging at the wall, while looking at Bonnie in fear) "Bonnie! Get yourself together! Come on, snap out of it!"
Then looked around randomly and saw Bonnie's bedside lamp. But it was away from her reach. That is when Bonnie moved her closer to it, clearly preparing to slam her to another wall. Caroline didn't miss the chance, and grabbed it quickly. Then as Bonnie slammed her to another wall, she threw the lamp to Bonnie. Bonnie stopped it with her powers, but in doing so, she lost full control on Caroline. Finding herself free, Caroline ran to Bonnie showing her fangs and veins. But Bonnie was faster than her, and stop her with pain infliction. Caroline held her head and started screaming. To her screams, Bonnie's dad got alerted and ran to Bonnie's room. But as soon as he arrived, Bonnie used her powers to close and lock the door. He started hitting the door.
Father: "Bonnie! Open this door!"
Caroline: "Bonnie! What're you doing! AAAAH!"
Bonnie's dad started hitting the door with his shoulder, intending to break it. And finally after a few tries, he managed to. As soon as the door broke and her father came in, Bonnie stopped her magic on Caroline. Caroline started panting. After looking around for a short while, Bonnie's dad saw half naked Bonnie, shards of the mirror, the broken bedside lamp, and Caroline on the floor, still panting due to the pain she suffered. The entire room was a mess.
Father: "What happened?"
Caroline raised her head barely and looked at him.
Stefan: "Finally. Welcome back."
Matt: "What happened?"
Stefan: "You died. They brought you back." (saw that Matt got hectic) "It's fine, you're still human."
Matt: (relaxed for a second, then got hectic again) "Oh my god, Elena! She was in the car too. How.. How is she?"
Stefan: "Well, she made it through. But it's a little bit more complicated."
Matt looked at him with confusion.
Damon: "You brought him here?
Matt: (with sadness) "Did Elena do this?"
Stefan: "Not all of it, but she did kickstart it."
Matt: "All this because she wanted to save my life." (a brief silence took place. Damon and Stefan looked at each other meaningfully) "How is Elena?"
Stefan: "She turned it off after this, then took off. We don't know where she is. Caroline's out there looking for her."
Upon this they looked at Jeremy. Meanwhile in Jeremy's mind..
Jeremy: "Why me?"
Esther: "You hate vampires. You hate what they took away from you. Your girlfriends, your family, even your memories, your very own free will. You watched as everything you ever valued slip through your fingers. What I offer you is a chance to take it all back."
Jeremy: "But at what cost?"
Esther: "A small price to pay for the sake of the mankind. The vampires must be killed."
Jeremy: "Not all of them. There are good ones among them."
Esther: "Name one. Caroline, who killed two cops and an innocent man. Stefan, the ripper of Monterey. Your sister, who killed you tonight, despite your efforts to stop her. She couldn't stop. None of them, can stop. More and more blood will be shed because of vampires every other day they survive. Innocent lives, someone's daughter, someone's family. People with hopes, dreams. Vampires destroy everything human in our lives. I thought you wanted it over."
Jeremy: "Yeah but I can't kill my sister!"
Esther: "I understand your struggle. But learn from my mistakes. You don't have to wait for a thousand years to get a chance to undo your mistake. We can end this here, and now, if we work together."
Jeremy looked around with disturbance. He didn't want his sister to die, but he couldn't help noticing Esther was right.
Tyler was laying on his bed, playing with his necklace. He seemed to be in deep thoughts. He heard someone coming, then saw that it was Caroline. Seeing her in tears, he got up quickly.
Tyler: "Caroline?" (went near her) "What is it?"
Caroline: (tried to smile) "It's just been a long day."
Tyler: "Talk to me."
Caroline: (hesitated for a moment) "It's.. It's Bonnie. I don't know what got into her, but she just tried to kill me."
Tyler: "Kill you? Why?"
Caroline: "Because I tried to criticize her for breaking up with Jamie because of too much sex."
Tyler: (with a naughty smile) "Too much sex?"
Caroline: (saw his face, and smiled) "Don't ask!" (then got serious) "Why don't we just leave?"
Tyler: "Caroline. You know I can't just leave. If the council figures out that my mom helped us escape, I wanna be here to protect her."
Caroline: "You're right. Right now the council knows me gone too. I can't be seen much. I already took too much risk when I went to hospital."
Tyler: "You went to hospital?"
Caroline: "Well, I took Jere..." (looked in his eyes) "Oh my god, you don't know!"
Tyler: "I live in a cave, remember? Why, what happened?" (background music took over as Caroline told everything that happened to him. Tyler was listening in shock. Finally.. "So now Elena is a vampire."
Caroline nodded. Upon this Tyler made an angry face, then punched the cave's wall in anger.
Caroline: (anxiously) "Tyler!"
Tyler: (looked at his hand and watched it heal. Then looked at the floor) "I just can't believe she's a vampire, that's all. She wasn't supposed to be one."
Caroline: "I know."
Tyler: "So we don't know where she is?"
Caroline: "No. I was out looking for her when Mr. Wilson called me. And you know what happened when I went there. Then I just came here."
They moved uncomfortably and looked around.
Rebekah: (with a weak voice) "You will.. regret this, Elena.. You will ne.. never get away with today!"
Elena: (got closer to her with the new stake) "Didn't we go over that, again, and again, and again, and again."
Rebekah: "Just let me go. I'm not gonna hurt you, I promise."
Elena: "You throw big words, but you don't know.." (angrily) ".. that you've left nothing to hurt me with! My brother is dead, I became a vampire.." (grabbed Rebekah's neck with anger. Rebekah gasped for breath) ".. you destroyed, MY ENTIRE LIFE!" (with a dangerously calm voice) "You know what they say about payback? Well today I'm the bitch!"
Then she started stabbing her violently. She was stabbing her chest, stomach, over and over again. Rebekah's blood was scattering everywhere. She was trying so hard to endure the pain, but regardless, she was screaming desperately. Suddenly she pushed her neck forward and managed to bite Elena's finger. Elena yelled briefly, then stabbed the stake to Rebekah's cheek. When Rebekah screamed, Elena's finger became free. Then Elena pulled her hair and stabbed her head from the underside of her chin, and punched Rebekah's face with all her strength. Parts of the stake flew across the room along with several of Rebekah's teeth. Rebekah couldn't even scream, and spit blood. When she looked at Elena, she saw that Elena took off her gloves and grabbed that big bowl filled with vervain fluid. Knowing what she is going to do, she begged desperately.
Rebekah: "No, no, NO!"
Elena didn't even stop for a moment, and poured all the vervain in the bowl on Rebekah down from her head. Rebekah's screams were literally heart rending.
Meredith: "I gotta go now. You were lucky I was there in time. Next time read this first."
Doctor: "I will, doctor Fell. I'm sorry, it won't happen again." (then he went to the other direction, as Meredith went near Stefan) "Amateurs."
Stefan: (jokingly) "Well, you're using vampire blood, so you're not exactly professional either."
Meredith: "In my defense, I never said I was a professional doctor. I only use vampire blood professionally."
Stefan: (smiled) "Hmm."
Meredith: "So how can I help you?"
Stefan: (made sure there was no one around) "I need you to help me talk to sheriff Carson."
Meredith: "Sheriff Carson? Why?"
Stefan: "Because talking to Liz wouldn't make much sense, she was outed."
Meredith: "I kn.." (suddenly realized Stefan was being sarcastic and looked at him weirdly) "I mean what do you wanna talk to him about?"
Stefan: "Our future in this town. Your's mine, others'.."
Meredith: "Look, Stefan. He won't talk to you. He's a hater. He won't even talk to me because I'm not a hater. Don't underestimate the new regime. The council has changed after they found out about Caroline and Tyler. And since they learned about werewolves too, they're a little on edge."
Stefan: "I'm aware of that."
Meredith: "This is my last two days in this town, Stefan. They took my licence, now I have to leave Mystic Falls if I want to continue being a doctor."
Stefan: "Look, I know I don't have much chance. But we all are being pushed away. So it wouldn't hurt if I tried to find some common ground."
Meredith: "Do you really think you can make peace with the council? For all the vampires in this town? That's insane, Stefan, even for.. That's never gonna work."
Stefan: "If it doesn't work, we're gonna have to leave anyway. We have nothing to lose here."
Meredith: (realized he has a point, spoke hesitantly) "I'll see what I can."
Stefan: "Thank you."
Meredith nodded, meaning "you are welcome".
Jeremy: "Vicki? Vicki! Hey! Vicki!"
Suddenly he noticed something. This was the backyard of their school, and this was the Halloween of 2009. As he looked around with confusion, the door opened again and his past self and Vicki went out kissing each other. Then Vicki took Jeremy to the buses. Other Jeremy looked at where they were gone. Vicki was holding Jeremy against the bus and kissing him passionately. He looked at him. She had that same vampire costume.
Jeremy: "I was so worried about you."
Vicky: "I'm fine now, but I gotta leave."
Jeremy: "What? Where?"
Vicki: "I gotta get out of here, Jer. I just, I can't live at home with Matt. He just doesn't get it."
Jeremy: "No, you can't. You can't just leave."
Vicki: "Come with me. If you come with me, we can be together forever."
Jeremy and Vicki continued kissing. Suddenly Vicki accidentally bit his lip, and then started sucking his blood.
Jeremy: "You're taking that costume a little too far." (But Vicki suddenly loses herself and bites him harder) "Vicky, what the hell?!" (pushed her away, and saw her face) "Oh, my god. No! stop! Vicky! No! Aah!"
Elena ran out of the back entrance. She saw Vicki was attacking Jeremy. She grabbed a wooden stake and ran to her. But Vicki threw her away. Before she could attack again, Stefan grabbed Vicki and held her against the bus. Present day Jeremy was watching everything with a great heart break. Esther finally appeared near him.
Esther: "This was your last moment with your girlfriend. The one that was taken from you."
Jeremy: "Why are you showing me this?"
Esther: "So that you can have it." (Jeremy looked at Esther. He was dropping tears) "I can give you everything that vampires took away from you. You know I can. What I offer you is a lot more than vampires can. This, is what they do. They don't show respect to humans. Or their memories. They take them away from you, just like that."
Jeremy: "I'm not sure I want to have this memory."
Esther: "Yes you do. You just never pictured it would be something like this, so it hurt you. But you're still glad that you have it." (Jeremy was confused) "Look."
Jeremy looked again, and saw Vicki biting his sister. Violently, intending to kill her with joy. Then Stefan staked her. Jeremy was yelling her name.
Suddenly everything faded, and after an effect like they moved with hyper speed, Jeremy found himself back at the hospital corridor, standing face to face with Esther.
Esther: "Join me, and I will help you get back whatever is taken from you. Vicki, Anna, your parents, Alaric. You can see all of them again!
Jeremy: (looked at Esther with horror like he figured out something) "As ghosts! You're going to let me see them, as ghosts!" (Esther didn't object. Taking this as a confirmation, Jeremy looked directly into Esther's eyes) "I will never join you. You're gonna have to kill me for that. Elena is my sister. And whatever she has done, or will do to me, I am.. choosing.. her!"
Esther: (tried not to give it away, but she was clearly disappointed) "Pathetic, but fine. Soon you'll realize your mistake. And when you do, I won't be there to help you. From now on, you're on your own."
Jeremy finally woke up. He looks around, and saw that he was in the hospital. Damon was near him.
Damon: (smiles) "Welcome back!"
Jeremy: (smiled barely) "It's gone. The feeling. I don't see ghosts anymore."
Damon: "Shh. Rest now."
Jeremy put his head back to the pillow, now relieved that he was simply, just human. His happiness could be seen in his face.
Rebekah: (crying at the same time) "Where are you bitch! Come and finish what you started!"
A little moment later Elena showed up at the door, dragging an iron pipe with her.
Elena: (looked at her) "What happened until now was just the training. What you'll go through now, will definitely be much worse!"
Rebekah: "Do you think I'm scared of you?"
Elena: "I don't know. But I know that in your last moment, you will be!"
Rebekah was trying so hard to keep it together, but she was already scared like hell. She was panting and crying with fear. But there is no escape. As Elena raised the pipe, she prepared herself for it. But it didn't help one it. She suddenly felt the incredible pain of the iron pipe piercing through her chest. Then Elena moved the pipe up and down, tearing her skin and breaking her breast bones. Rebekah was shaking and screaming with incredible agony, and fresh blood scattered everywhere, including Elena's face. In no time, Elena opened a huge hole on Rebekah's chest and stopped. Rebekah tried to look at Elena. She was crying her eyes out. With the last of her power, she begged her.
Rebekah: "Please! Please!"
Elena: (came closer to Rebekah and looked into her eyes) "You should consider yourself lucky. I didn't even get to say please!"
Rebekah: (crying with despair) "I'm sorry. I'm so sorry!"
Elena looked at her. She was definitely telling the truth. Her regret and sadness could be seen in her face. She looked around numbly, then spoke with an emotionless voice.
Elena: "What do I care."
That word broke Rebekah. She knew she was going to die. As expected, Elena jammed her fist into Rebekah's chest, grabbed her heart, and started to pull it out with all her strength. Rebekah stopped minding about the rivets and needles. She had to break free. She tried to resist the incredible pain coming from everywhere. But suddenly all the pain was gone. She had one last second to look at Elena, who now was holding a heart at her hand. Her heart. Then in one second, Rebekah's head fell and everything became black.
Elena dropped the heart, and walked out of the room after staring at the body for a few seconds with no emotion at all.
Stefan: "Listen, Damon, we need to talk."
Damon: (without looking at him) "Save it Stefan. I know what you're gonna say. (looked at him) "And me too."
Stefan: "We weren't supposed to fight like that."
Damon: (sighed) "I know. At least something good happened today."
Then they got out of the car and walked to the house. Just before they opened the door.
Damon: "At least now we have something to use when we find Elena. The girl turns it off when her brother dies, she might turn it back on when she sees he's still alive."
Stefan: "Yeah but how do we find her? Caroline's been out all day looking for her. She couldn't find her."
Damon: "Where the hell is Bonnie?"
Stefan: "Last I heard she was with Jamie."
Damon: (opened the door and entered house) "Yeah, well, we have to find her before she does something.." (suddenly realized something was wrong and his voice changed) ".. stupid."
Stefan: (looked at Damon while focusing around) "Do you smell that?"
Damon: "It's blood!"
Stefan: "It's vampire blood!"
Suddenly the door to the basement opened and Elena went out, her arms, face and clothes covered in blood. The brothers looked at her in shock.
Elena: (came near them) "What?"
Stefan: (looked at Damon) "Something stupid?"
Damon: (his eyes fixed on Elena) "Elena, what did you do?"
Elena: "I killed Rebekah."
Both Stefan and Damon freaked out. Stefan looked at the basement entrance.
Damon: "What? Elena!"
Damon: "What if we all die!?"
Elena: "I took a wild guess, and I was right. Relax, guys, it's been hours!"
Damon: "Well, that's it. I want you to turn it on."
Elena: "And why would I do that?"
Damon: "Because I want you to."
Elena: (chuckled) "I'm not sired to you anymore, genius! You set me free, remember?"
Damon: (moved his head with a threatening manner) "Well, then I'm gonna have to make you!"
Then he attacked Elena with his vampire speed and pushed her to the wall. But with a surprising move, before even they hit the wall, Elena overpowered him and pushed Damon to the opposite wall while holding his neck. This surprised both Stefan and Damon.
Elena: (with an intimidating and dangerously calm voice) "Don't piss me off, Damon. It'd be such a waste, if I had to kill someone with such beautiful eyes." (then left Damon. As the brothers were trying to process what they just witnessed, she spoke with a naughty voice) "Good night, boys." (then got out of the house)
Stefan: (after she's gone) "How did she kill Rebekah?"
Damon: "How did she overpower me??"
Stefan: (looked at Damon) "Do you realize what this means?"
Damon: "It means if Elijah and Kol finds this out we're in big trouble."
Stefan: "We have to dispose the body!"
They quickly went to the basement cell, but as soon as they arrived, they were shocked to see that it's empty.
Damon: "Where is the body!?" (after looking empty for a while, Stefan scoffed and leaned to the threshold. Damon understood, and looked at Stefan with an awkwardly happy face) "We're screwed."
Stefan didn't know what to say. But it was clear that he agreed.
