Truth Unravels is the seventeenth episode in Season 5 and 105th overall.
will be written
|Early in the morning around 5 am or so, Forbes door is knocked. Caroline wakes up and goes to the door, only to see Aiden. She opens the door and with a not so welcoming and sleepy voice, asks him what is he doing here at this hour. Aiden says he needs her help. Caroline curiously asks what for. Aiden says he will explain on the way. Caroline asks for a minute to change, and indeed she quickly comes back. Then they go to mayor's house. Caroline asks what are they doing here. Aiden tells her to be quiet, and opens the door with a lock pick. Then tells her to try to enter the house. Caroline says she can't, because she isn't invited in here. Aiden says he knows, that's why he needed her help. He says he wants to test something, and asks Caroline again to try to enter. Caroline, not knowing what good will this do, does as Aiden says and tries to walk inside. But to her surprise, she is able to enter. She looks at Aiden with confusion and asks what is going on. Aiden, with a huge discomfort, says that he was right. The kitsune killed the mayor. Caroline seems equally uncomfortable as she looks around pointlessly.
Meanwhile Max, Damon, and others are walking in the forest, going near the rebels. Elena breaks the silence.
Elena: "So Meredith is safe now, right."
Damon: "It appears so."
Max: "Well at least she was when we were leaving."
Stefan: "So Nathan is this foreseer, right?"
Max: "I still wouldn't loosen up right away though. We still have a long way to Guardian's Gate. Anything could happen."
Elena: "All we have to do is keep an eye on Meredith. I'm sure she'll be fine."
Max: (looks at Misao, who is still unconscious) "We also have this hostage situation. Totally unexpected." (looks at her but talks to Damon) "How hard did you hit her, I mean, she's out for like what, a day?"
Damon: "More or less."
Elena: "You think she's faking it?"
Damon: "Oh no, she's too proud of herself to let herself be pushed around like that."
Max: "She's still holding a great threat though."
Max: "I'm serious, Damon! You think those ropes will hold her? She's a shapeshifter, she can easily turn into a rabbit, mouse, or snake and get free. What do you think will happen then?"
Damon: "If she turns into something I can crush with my feet, well, I will crush her with my feet."
Elena: "And if she turns into a rabbit, Stefan here could feed on her." (Max weirdly looks at Elena) "He has a thing for bunnies."
Stefan: "Yeah, I could really use a rabbit right now."
Everyone starts laughing upon this, except Max, who doesn't know the deal about it.
Katherine: (angrily) "When the hell did that happen?"
Aiden: "After I talked to him last night I guess. Jay and I were always close, but last night he was like a stranger. He kept avoiding me. You should've seen him talking to the council. A true hater, he wasn't like that.
Tyler: "So I guess the kitsune appeared to him as Richard to gather the council."
Chris: "And they killed him after that."
June: "So what's our move?"
Caroline: "We don't really have many options, do we?"
Samara: "What do you have in mind?"
Caroline: "What do you think?"
Katherine: "Damn girl, you've really changed."
Caroline: "What's that supposed to mean?"
Tyler: "Please don't start now!"
Chris: "I second that!"
Aiden: "If you're gonna fight again, just let us know first!"
Aiden: "The last time these two lay into each other, they ruined Samara's living room!"
Tyler: "Hey, no one's ruining anything! We're in my living room now and I like it the way it is!"
Katherine: "I'm not seeking fight, but I wouldn't run away from one."
June: "How about we focus on the real problem?"
Katherine: "I'm just saying."
Samara: "She's 13 but she's smarter than all of you."
Caroline: "I only asked what she meant!"
Aiden: "I came here to discuss the kitsune problem. I'm not interested in your teeny drama. So whatever issue you have with each other, please go upstairs and keep us out of it."
Samara: "I concur!"
Katherine: "Wait, this is my fault now?"
Samara: "Not you."
Katherine: "So much for the peace offer."
Caroline: "Shut up! You started it!"
Aiden: "This is exactly what I'm talking about!"
Samara: "Caroline, please go."
Samara: "We have more important things to focus on then your issues with Katherine."
Caroline bitterly looks at others. Apparently they all agree. She scoffs angrily.
Caroline: "So this is what I get for trying to protect my friends. You know what, you don't deserve my help. Until you do, you can all rot in hell!"
Then while everyone is looking at her, she goes out of the living room and the house.
Aiden: (after she's gone) "Was she really serious?"
Tyler: "I think she was."
Samara: "I couldn't care less."
Chris: "Samara's right, Caroline has this pointless issues with Katherine and she's disturbing all of us with that. If she's gonna be that way all the time we're better of without her."
Tyler: "She's actually pissed at me."
Samara: "And she's lashing out. I don't have to deal with that."
Chris: "None of us do." (looks at Tyler) "You dated that?"
Tyler moves uncomfortably, doesn't know what to say.
Tyler: "She wasn't like this."
Aiden: "Are you sure she's gonna be okay?"
Katherine: "What do you mean?"
Aiden: "If she's mad at all of us, wouldn't she do something crazy, like.."
June: "No. She wouldn't go that far."
Aiden: "Are you sure?"
Katherine: "She wouldn't turn us in on her worst day. She's just that good."
Samara: "She is always on our side. She just.."
Suddenly an awkward silence hits the room.
June: (breaks the silence after a while) "We just don't want her around."
Tyler: (not so happily) "No. Not anymore."
Aiden: "Listen. We all lost friends in this fight. I lost Richard and Jay, Chris lost his angel friends, we don't know if Damon and others are coming back. And now Caroline turned her back to us. These creatures have been sneaky, and they are attacking us where it would hurt most. With everything they did, they made it clear that they seek war. So I say we give it to them."
Katherine: "Okay, now you got me!"
Samara: "I don't wanna be the one to point the obvious but you are talking about a move against the mayor."
Tyler: "That thing is not mayor."
Samara: "I know. But the council doesn't."
Tyler: "Okay, you have a point."
Chris: "Yea, that's a big problem."
Aiden: "One way or another, we still have to kill him."
Katherine: "Shouldn't be so hard. He can't have 7/24 protection from the council. At one point he's gonna have to part from them."
Chris: "Yes, to meet his own kind."
Tyler: "That's a problem too."
Samara: "Also we shouldn't forget that even if we manage to kill him, another one can easily take his place."
June: "That's true. With the council on their side, they now possess a great power. I don't think they would easily give up on that."
Katherine: "So we have to kill him in front of everyone?"
Samara: "This is insane."
Aiden: "But also our only chance."
Chris: "Aiden is right. Unless we kill the mayor in front of everyone, no one would believe that he is dead and kitsune is taking his place."
June: "Say we'll do it. How do we even get any close to him?"
Katherine: "Vampire speed should do it."
Tyler: "Katherine, you are the strongest and fastest of us, but even you cannot run inside, kill the mayor, and run back out before anyone can get you."
Samara: "Exactly. The one who walks inside may not come back out. We should keep that in mind."
Chris: "So it won't be me."
Tyler: "Chris used phantom."
Katherine: (jokingly) "Lucky bastard."
June: "Maybe I can hold them back with my barriers for whoever gets inside, but not for long if there's too many of them."
Samara: "Not an option anyway. They did and they will shoot you on sight."
Tyler: "So, does any of us have a death wish? That or we're gonna have to draw straws!"
Aiden: "You're missing the whole point." (suddenly everyone looks at him curiously) "He doesn't know that we know. We can use this."
June: (understands) "So we lure him outside, then we make our move!"
Chris: "It still won't be me."
Tyler: "Why is it this time?"
Chris: "Because he could read my mind from a mile away. I don't have Samara's mind protection spell, I would give away the whole plan."
Samara: (jokingly) "Are you gonna use this excuse every single time?"
Chris: (smiles) "Maybe."
June: (after a brief silence) "So, what are we gonna do?"
Upon this everyone looks at each other curiously.
Misao: (looks at him) "What's going on?" (Damon keeps looking at her) "Where are we?"
Damon: (looks around without moving his head) "You don't know? A little red bird told me you have this very nice view from your room."
Misao weirdly looks at him. Then looks around, and recognizes the place. Smiles barely.
Damon: "We are sneaky."
Misao: (apparently liked the answer, smiles) "You know I can read your mind, right?"
Damon: "If so, then why bother asking?"
Misao: (she apparently liked this answer too, smiles again) "I like talking to you, Damon. Your mind works faster than I can read it. Not many people has that."
Damon: "One of the things that make me dangerous."
Misao: "Right. Big bad vampire. So you past Shi no Shi. Big deal."
Damon: "Kind of is."
Misao: "Nothing compared to what's ahead of the road. You know the tales. No one..."
Damon: (interrupts) "...came back. I know."
Misao: "I gotta tell you, you're way over your heads."
Damon: "How so?"
Misao: (chuckles and looks at the rebels, who are looking at her with discomfort) "A bunch of fugitives headed to Guardian's Gate to go to Earth and find their precious freedom? That's not gonna happen. This is a dangerous path. And you're all gonna die."
The way she said the last sentence even freaked Damon, as he slowly walks away and goes near others.
Stefan: "I don't like this."
Ulma: "She's just playing our heads, we shouldn't let her."
Hope: "But how? Our minds are like an open book to her."
Stefan: "It's not what concerns me."
Stefan slowly looks at Misao, who is looking at him. Stefan is clearly thinking about the moment she let him feed from her own wrist, practically doing a good thing to him. The way he looks at her is clear to audience that he thinks she is trying to help them
Stefan: (looks at Damon and others) "She said this is a dangerous path. I say it'd be unwise to not heed the warning."
Ulma: "So what're you saying, Misao is trying to help us?"
Bonnie: "I wouldn't trust one word that comes out of that bitch's mouth."
Elena: "Exactly. How quick you forgot how she manipulated Bonnie, and David, and other angels, just to get what she wants."
Stefan: "But she told the truth when we trapped her in June's barriers."
Damon: "Has not feeding for months gave you a brain damage?"
Stefan: "All I'm saying, she doesn't benefit from keeping us here. Her thing is with Elena, what she wants is to take her to Inari. And considering we are protecting her, she should want us dead. If she really thinks we're gonna die she would shut her hole. But instead she is warning us."
Hope: "She said "You're all gonna die". I gotta admit, Stefan does have a point."
Damon: "Let me ask you something. Do you rather us to pack our things and go back?"
Stefan: "Let me ask you something. Why do you think she is still here?"
Upon this everyone freaks and they look at Misao, but she is right where she was before.
Bonnie: "I so don't like this."
Max: (freaked) "She is still here. We weren't looking at her, and she could have turned into an animal and run, but she's still here!" (looks at everyone) "She's after something! Not just doppelganger, but something else too!"
Stefan: "I think you're reading too much into it."
Damon: (sarcastically) "I think it'd be unwise to not heed the warning!" (Stefan looks at him, not knowing how to reply this) "Max is right. She is here for something." (looks at Misao) "And I'm gonna find out!"
Then starts walking to Misao.
Jay: "I came."
Aiden: "You did. Quite frankly I'm surprised."
Jay: "So why did you call me.." (looks around) ".. to this park at the middle of the night?"
Aiden: "Do you remember what happened here?"
Jay quickly looks at Aiden's head, but realizing he is unable to read it, feels cornered, but tries not to let on.
Jay: "Sure I do."
Aiden: "What was it?"
Jay: (looks at him for a while) "Look, I don't have time for your stupid games. I came here because you said you have something important to tell me. So stop fooling around and speak."
Aiden: "Stupid games." (chuckles uncomfortably) "Just the proof that I needed."
Jay: "I don't know what you're talking about."
Aiden: "Of course you don't. It's because you can't read my mind." (Jay weirdly looks at him) "Am I right, fox?"
Only then Jay realizes that he is surrounded by the rest of the gang.
Jay: "Wait, you really think I'm a kitsune?"
Katherine: "Try a new one, that one's getting really old!"
Jay: (freaks) "Guys, this is insane! I can't read your minds because I'm not a kitsune!"
Aiden laughs hysterically.
Samara: "Well if you're not a kitsune, then how do you explain the sudden change?"
Jay: "What sudden change?" (But June imprisons in psychic barriers while he was talking, and because of that he says "change" in his original fox form. He recognizes his voice, only then he realizes he is changed) "Oh."
Tyler: (smiles dangerously) "Game over fox!"
Then altogether they attack him. But kitsune turns out to the tougher then they expected, as he fights them back pretty well. He dodges speed attacks, lands fine blows. But in short while he starts to get tired, so he runs to Aiden and strangles him.
Kitsune: "Now back off, unless any of you thinks they have it in them to come to me before I can break this guy's neck!"
Katherine: "I don't care if he dies."
Kitsune: "Right, vampire. Okay then."
Aiden prepares himself for death. But before kitsune can make a move, someone pretty fast comes out of nowhere and hits the kitsune. When all three fall down, they see who was it.
Tyler: (surprised) "Caroline?"
Caroline: "I had this hunch that you guys wouldn't last a day without me. And I think I was right!"
Tyler smiles with happiness. But suddenly the fights restarts. Kitsune tries to kick Caroline, but she dodges and quickly gets up. Aiden quickly slips away, then vampires run to the kitsune. But even though the kitsune has an obvious disadvantage due to June's barriers, with all the flips, dodges and everything, he is undoubtedly giving them one hell of a run for their money. And when he finds an opening, he quickly snaps Tyler's neck, and slams a dashing Katherine on him. Samara tries pushing him away hoping it'll make some damage, but he hits June's barriers and doesn't go far. Although the strong hit apparently hurt June. Samara quickly turns to her to apologize and say she totally forgot, and asks if she is okay. Meanwhile Caroline tries attacking the kitsune, but kitsune kicks her face, then grabs her arm, and spins around to throw her to June and Samara. Her flying scream alerts them, but she hits them before any of them can move. As they all fall down, June loses her control on the barriers and the kitsune gets free. Katherine tries to get up, and Aiden aims his gun to him. But before any of them can make a move, kitsune yells in Japanese to cast a powerful spell. Suddenly thunders are heard, and a lightning hits a lamp nearby and another one hits the earth, covering everywhere in sparks and dust. All of them start coughing. Samara quickly creates a wind with magic to clear the dust. But when the sight is cleared, they all freak out. They see that there is no one in the park but them. The kitsune was gone.
Jay quickly comes back to mayor's house and calls everyone. The council gathers in no time. When they are all in the living room, Jay speaks.
Jay: "I've been thinking on something for some time, and I think you have a right to know. I believe sheriff is not doing his job well enough."
Councilor 1: "Took you long enough."
Jay: "And I suppose under these circumstances, the best course of action would be to relieve him of his duty."
Councilor 2: "What happened?"
Councilor 2: "What changed your mind."
Jay: (looks at them for a while) "He tried to kill me!"
Councilor 3: "Then he should go to prison!"
Councilor 4: "No, he wouldn't do that."
Jay: "I'm lying?"
Councilor 4: "No, I didn't say it. I said he wouldn't do it."
Jay: "What's that supposed to mean?"
Councilor 2: "Are you saying he is compelled?"
Councilor 3: "Makes sense, he's hanging out with vampires all the time."
Councilor 4: "Actually I was gonna say he could be kitsune."
Councilor 1: "Kitsune? Why?"
Councilor 4: "Because he said he suspected that the kitsune is killing council members."
Councilor 5: "And you trust him?"
Councilor 4: "He has no reason lie."
Councilor 6: "Unless he is compelled."
Councilor 5: "Exactly."
Councilor 4: "Look, Aiden hated vampires but he took their side for a good reason."
Councilor 1: "Good reason?"
Councilor 4: "At least he thought it was a good reason. But no matter what happens, he would never go as far as killing one of his closest friends, or any of us for that matter. We all know that."
Councilor 2: "Actually that makes sense."
Jay: "Okay, I get it! But whatever he is - kitsune, compelled - he is out for blood, and he's after me, and he made it clear that he's never gonna stop until he kills me! There is only one thing we can do to stop him."
Councilor 1: (uncomfortably) "Kill him?"
Jay: "If he is a kitsune, he's not our friend. If he's compelled, he would want that. As much as it hurts me to say it, Aiden is gone. You know what what have to do."
Upon this councilors look at each other, uncomfortable, but convinced and ready to take action.
Tyler: "What happened?"
Caroline: (smiles) "You got sloppy."
Tyler: "And got my neck broken."
Caroline: "So I brought you here."
Tyler: "Did we.."
Caroline: "No, he fled."
Caroline: "They're fine. Thanks to me. Aiden kept thanking me for saving his neck from the kitsune."
Tyler: "How'd you know?"
Caroline: "Chris. After you left he called me and said you guys might need some back up. So I decided to watch you from some distance."
Tyler: (looks at Caroline) "What is it with you and Katherine?"
Caroline: "Do you really need to ask?"
Tyler: (understands) "Caroline, I.."
Caroline: "I know. And I know that I gave you my blessing, but I can't help it Tyler. And.. There's just too much history."
Tyler: "Let go, Caroline. Like you said, it's history, it's past."
Caroline: "So am I supposed to just forgive her for everything she's done?"
Tyler: "You did forgive Klaus, didn't you?" (Caroline weirdly looks at him) "Listen, we can hate these people all the way, but at the end of the day, they did some good to us. Katherine made you a vampire, and you became a much better person than you were as a human. And Klaus made me a hybrid and saved me from an eternal misery. We could at least respect them."
Caroline: "Katherine turned me so that I can spy on my friends. And Klaus didn't know that Elena was the key when he turned you and practically sentenced you to death. So your logic, Tyler, fails big time!"
Tyler: "Maybe, but that's not how I choose to believe."
They look at each other quietly, then they hear others coming from outside. Tyler stands up to open the door, but they come in before he can.
Caroline: (gets up) "So?"
Chris: "It was a bust."
Samara: "We looked everywhere. He either became a worm and went underground..,"
Katherine: "Or became a pigeon and flew to the council."
Samara: "Which sounds more plausible."
Tyler: "Where's Aiden?"
Chris: "He said he's calling the night. He should be headed home."
June: "I don't know you guys, but I need some serious sleeping."
Samara: "All of us do." (looks at others) "See you tomorrow?"
They all nod, and wish each other good night. Chris and Samara leave to go to their houses, and in short while Caroline leaves too. Then Tyler and June go upstairs to their rooms.
Damon: "Why are you here?"
Misao: (panting after clearly many punches) "You tied me to a chair with an enchanted rope. I cannot shapeshift."
Damon: "Nice try. But not good. See, I know your strength, and my brother over there says you told them you are matchless in this place. So that whole weak girl acts, I don't buy it."
Misao: "Who is acting? I will get over that magic anytime now. And when I do, I'll make you beg for mercy."
Damon: "Why are you here?"
Misao: "That's for me to know and for you to dot dot dot." (laughs)
Damon: "I'm gonna ask this just once more, then things will get ugly."
Misao: (chuckles) "Oh I'm sure it will."
Damon: "Why are you here?"
Misao: "Do you really think knowing that would help it?"
Damon: "Maybe. Or maybe not. But see, this is a power play, and since they are watching, I have an obligation to break you."
Misao: "I suppose you have much bigger problems than my motives right now, Damon."
Damon: "Really? Like what's-ahead-of-the-road?"
Misao: (chuckles) "Trust me, those things are the least of your problems."
Damon: "Enlighten me."
Misao: "The problem is within. You carry it all the time like a burden. No matter how deep you bury it, it always finds a way to go back up to surface. You think no one knows, but there is always someone who knows." (Damon weirdly looks at her) "Secrets, Damon. You are filled with it, every single one of you, has a secret they keep from everyone. But since your little Mystic Falls gang is too close, there should be no room for secrets, am I wrong?"
Damon: "Shut up!"
Misao: "For example the dearest of you. Your beloved brother Stefan!"
Damon: "SHUT UP!!!"
Then punches her as hard as he can.
Misao: (laughs hysterically) "You asked me why I'm here. Well that's why! I'm here because of him. Because he felt pity for me. He thought he owed me."
Damon: "What're you talking talking about?"
Stefan looks nervously, clearly unable to think of something to say.
Misao: "He was mummifying. He hadn't fed for months, until a she-fox entered his cage and gave him some of her own blood."
Damon: (understands) "No!"
Damon: "I don't believe it!"
Misao: "Well, that part is entirely up to you. But Stefan knows that I have a tendency to tell the truth when, well, I'm trapped!"
Damon: (looks at Stefan) "Is that true? Is that why you didn't let me kill her? Was the whole thing a lie? You've gone soft for your enemy?"
Stefan: "Listen, there's more to it than you know."
Misao: (laughs) "Of course there is! But I wonder what Scott would say to that!"
Damon: "Shut your hole you little bitch!"
Ulma: "Scott? What do you know about Scott!?"
Damon closes his eyes with intense annoyance.
Nathan: (quietly) "Oh god!"
Ulma: "Tell me!"
Misao: "I think I'm gonna leave that to Damon."
Damon remains still for a moment. Then slowly turns to Ulma.
Damon: "It was before I met you."
Meredith: "Look, it's totally not his fault."
Misao: (surprised) "It's not?"
Ulma: "What is not his fault?"
Damon: "Scott is dead."
Ulma: "I kinda figured when he never returned. But what does that have.." (suddenly understands, and looks at Damon with shock) "You! You killed him?"
Damon: "It was before I met you. I hadn't fed for days, and I was starving. He was the first person I saw in days."
Ulma: "I can't believe you!"
Damon: "Look, normally I don't kill, but I was too hungry. I'm a vampire, it happens!"
Ulma: (angrily) "NOT TO MY MEN!"
Nathan: "Lady Ulma, Scott was my friend too, but Damon.."
Ulma: (interrupts) "You knew it!"
Ulma: "You took this pretty well, which means you knew it too." (Nathan doesn't know what to say) "Does Hope know too?"
Ulma: (looks at her) "How can I trust any of you?"
Then walks away. After she's gone, Hope angrily looks at Nathan, then runs after her mother.
Hope: "Mom! Mom, wait!"
Misao: (after they are gone) "Truth hurts, doesn't it?"
Max: "What hurts most is that I get to learn this from my supposed enemy and not my friends."
Misao: "Supposed friends."
Altogether: "SHUT UP!!!"
Misao: (laughs) "Man, I touched a nerve, didn't I! That's too bad, we were just getting started!"
Elena: "Haven't you said enough?"
Misao: "Not even close. But I suppose it's Klaus' turn to reveal some skeletons in his closet."
Damon: "Klaus has a graveyard in his closet, what's your point?"
Misao: "But I think Elena will be interested in this particular one."
Misao: (looks at Elena) "Did you ever ask yourself, why Klaus is here?"
Elena: "Go figure. I'm the doppelganger, key to creating his hybrids."
Misao: "I know, but why is he here, present? He could have compelled a dozen of vampires to do his work."
Damon: (quietly, so that only Misao can hear) "Please, don't!"
Stefan: (whispers, knowing that Damon will hear) "Damon, stop her!"
Misao: ".. someone promised something in return!"
Elena: "Who, promised what?"
Misao: (while looking at Damon) "Ask those who you trust most."
Damon: (with anger and desperation) "You're so dead!"
Elena: "Damon, what's she talking about?"
Damon: "It's nothing, don't mind it."
Elena: "It's not nothing, what is it? Damon, what'd you promise to Klaus?" (but Damon doesn't reply. Blinded with rage, he rushes to Misao and lands her blow after blow, while swearing and cursing wildly and uncontrollably) "Damon! Damon, stop! DAMON!" (after she yells, he takes a step back) "Punch her all you want. But it's not gonna avert the question!"
Damon looks at Misao with anger and desperation. Misao, who's eyebrow is bleeding, slowly looks at Damon.
Misao: "Tell her, Damon. Or I will. She might as well hear from you."
Upon this Damon finally makes up his mind, and slowly turns to Elena, who is looking at him curiously.
Damon: "It was June's idea."
Elena: "What was June's idea?"
Damon: "If Klaus helped us save you, she promised to leave town with him."
Elena: (looks shocked and devastated) "No! You wouldn't.. You wouldn't let her!" (but the silence she gets is too disturbing) "I.. I don't believe. I can't! Damon?" (turns to Stefan) "Stefan?" (but Stefan is too nervous to say something. Eventually Elena has to accept the truth) "How could you? To her? My god, she's just 13 years old! She's just a kid! And you let her do this? How?"
Stefan: "She said she's gonna be fine. Klaus needs her human blood so he.."
Elena: "When Klaus needed my human blood he tied me to a chair and drained me off blood! How could you forget that! All of you, so grown up, mature people, what'd you do? Sat back and watched while she offered herself to him?"
Bonnie: "Elena, please listen!"
Elena: (turns to her after hearing her voice) "And you! My dearest, oldest friend! I trusted you would take care of her. How can you even talk to me after everything you've done! First to Caroline, then me? Are you even our friend?" (looks at others) "I don't want to be saved. Might as well let Inari kill me." (sees that Klaus is about to say something) "Don't! I don't wanna hear it!"
She quickly looks at everyone. Then shakes her head with intense annoyance and devastation, and walks away from them. Damon is looking at her, clearly very upset.
Misao: "Don't pout, Damon. Because you're not the only one who's keeping secrets. You see, there is one big dark secret that's been kept from you."
Damon: "What're you talking about?"
Misao: "Remember your angel girlfriend? The one you accuse me of murdering?"
Damon: (slowly looks at Misao) "Natalie!"
Misao: (raises her head to look at him) "I didn't do the murder!"
Damon: "Who did?"
Upon hearing what she is up to, Bonnie looks incredibly nervous and helpless. She doesn't speak, but her lips read "No!".
Misao: "Someone really close to you. Someone you confide in."
Misao: (raises her voice so that everyone can hear) "Why don't you inform us about the identity of this mysterious murderer, Bonnie?"
Bonnie starts panting.
Damon: "What're you implying?"
Misao: "I think you know. But you're in denial!"
Damon's eyes wide open with anger, and grabs Misao's shirt.
Damon: "No!" (punches her) "You're lying!" (punches her again) "Bonnie would never do that! She would never do that!"
Misao: (without looking at him) "Why don't you ask her, and see for yourself?"
Damon: (without looking at Bonnie) "Tell me this is not true!" (Bonnie remains speechless, as she is well aware that she is in big trouble. But her silence bugs Damon even more) "Bonnie Kristin Bennett! Tell me, this is not true!" (then he looks at her. Everything becomes clear after seeing her troubled face) "Oh, it is! It is true, isn't it!"
Meredith: (unable to believe) "What?"
Damon: "I'm gonna kill you!"
Stefan: (quickly goes near Damon and holds him before he attacks Bonnie) "Damon, calm down!"
Damon: "How could you do this! Huh? How could you!" (Bonnie looks down, but Damon yells with an incredible anger) "Answer me!"
Bonnie: "She promised me she would bring Antonio back in return!"
Damon: (his rage is clearly intensified) "So you traded my girlfriend for your BOYFRIEND!?"
Stefan: "Damon, back off!"
Damon: (yells) "How could you do this, huh? How?"
Bonnie: (looks at him with anger) "I was selfish, okay? Just as selfish as you were when you snapped Jeremy's neck.."
Bonnie: ".. raped Caroline," (upon this Klaus quickly looks at Damon with frustration) ".. turned my mother!"
Nathan: "Oh my.."
Damon: "You've been waiting for this day, weren't you bitch!"
Bonnie: "Bring it on vampire! I'm not afraid of you!"
Damon: "You heard her, Stefan!"
Stefan: "Damon, I said back off!"
But Damon quickly grabs Stefan's arm and punches his face as hard as he can.
Damon: "Get off of me!"
Then he attacks Bonnie with his vampire speed. But before he can reach her, Stefan comes to her rescue and hits Damon. They both roll on the floor for a while. But Damon gets on top of him in no time. He keeps punching Stefan until Bonnie uses pain infliction on him. Damon yells with pain and holds his head. Elena yells her to stop, but Bonnie does not even hear. Damon opens his eyes and looks around, and sees a little rock just in his reach. Without a moment's hesitation, he grabs it and throws to Bonnie's head. It hits her head and she yells with pain. And as a result she loses control on her magic. Upon getting free, Damon storms to her and hits her. They both fall down. Then Damon bites Bonnie's neck as hard as he can. Bonnie screams with intense pain. Elena yells him to stop, which only makes Damon bite harder. Suddenly Stefan gets back up and hits Damon with vampire speed. They both roll away, but Bonnie's neck is bleeding so bad. Damon and Stefan start fighting so fiercely that no one dares to interfere. However, everyone is anxiously focused on the fight. Finding this as her opportunity, Misao quickly turns into a small animal, then turns back to her original self, rendering herself free of the ropes. Unaware of that, Elena looks at Klaus.
Elena: (angrily) "Klaus, make yourself useful and do something!" (meaning to break Stefan and Damon up)
But before he can move, they are all startled with Nathan's voice.
Nathan: "Klaus look out!"
Klaus quickly looks around, and sees that Misao is free. Misao looks at Nathan and understands that he foresaw that she would attack. Due to her surprise attack failing, she yells with anger.
Misao: "Damn it!"
Then gets up quickly and throws the chair she was sitting on to Klaus. Klaus manages to grab it before it hits him, but Misao pushes it telekinetically, making it hit Klaus anyway, and he flies away with the chair. Then she pushes Bonnie the same way who is trying to get up, then focuses on the ground and makes the earth under Nathan's feet explode. He tumbles due to the explosion, then falls down severely wounded. Meredith, who is afraid that something bad happened, calls her wings of destruction. Misao freaks, and throws herself behind a tree before Meredith can wave her wings. As a result Meredith ends up destroying the tree, leaving Misao unharmed. Knowing that she can't make such attack again, she runs to Nathan.
Upon hearing the explosion, screams and noises, Stefan and Damon stop fighting and look around. And seeing that Misao is free, they attack her. Meredith comes near Nathan and sees that his leg is wounded. She quickly checks and realizes that his artery is cut.
Meredith: "Oh god!"
Nathan: "Meredith, it hurts!"
Meredith: "You hurt an artery!"
Nathan: "That's bad, isn't it? God, it hurts!"
Meredith: (takes out a tube of blood and gives it to him) "Here, drink this. How come you didn't see this coming?"
Nathan: "I was focused on you." (takes the tube) "What is this?"
Meredith: "It's Damon's blood, it'll heal you."
Nathan: "Will it make me like him?"
Meredith: "No, it won't, Nathan, just drink it!"
Upon this Nathan holds the tube, and after a moment of hesitation, he drinks half of it. Then offers the rest to Bonnie, who is a little far from him.
Nathan: "Bonnie, drink this!"
Bonnie: (looks at him without moving her head, while holding her neck, clearly trying to stop the bleeding) "No thanks, I wouldn't drink that demon's blood!"
Nathan: "Take this or you'll bleed out! It's not a good time to be proud!"
Upon this Bonnie looks at the tube for a moment, then reaches to it.
Meanwhile Damon and Stefan clash with Misao. The two try their best, but Misao's game is undoubtedly higher than their's. So in no time she takes both of them down, and tries to snap their necks. But Bonnie uses magic to push her and save the brothers. Misao rolls away, and coincidentally drops near Klaus, who is just starting to get up. The two start an incredibly fierce fight. Even though Klaus seems more durable and strong, Misao is clearly more agile and she is using it far better than Klaus. Due to that she gets the upper hand no time. Klaus suddenly uses his vampire speed to get behind and strangle her, she breaks free with almost no effort. She hits his head with the back of her head, steps on his foot, then turns to him while making Klaus spin around, and when she finds that opening, she kicks his spine, breaking it with a creepy noise.
Jay: "This is him! Do it, take him down!"
They all stand up quickly to draw their weapons and aim at Aiden. But Aiden acts like he has no idea about what is happening.
Aiden: (with an innocent voice) "Wow, guys! Chill! What is this, what's happening?"
Councilor 1: "A kitsune took your place and tried to kill Jay."
Aiden: (frowns) "It can't be me. I was with vampires all day."
Councilor 2: (meaningfully) "You seem to be spending too much time with vampires lately."
Aiden: "I'm not a kitsune, if that's what you're worried about."
Jay: "Like he would just say it!"
Councilor 3: "Prove it!"
Aiden: (looks at him) "I lost my daughter 4 months ago. Does that work for you?"
Upon this they all relieve, and lower their guns.
Councilor 3: "This is him."
Aiden: "I'm not kitsune, but there is one among us and I know who that is."
Councilor 4: (curiously and anxiously) "Who?"
Aiden: (fixes his eyes on Jay, then raises his finger to point him) "Him!"
They all freak out.
Jay: "Don't let him fool you, he has no idea what he is talking about."
Councilor 1: (to others) "You think he is compelled?"
Councilor 3: (to Aiden) "You don't just drop a bombshell like this and expect us to believe it! Do you have any proof?"
Aiden: "I brought Caroline Forbes here this morning. She was able to enter the house without an invitation." (crowd starts chattering indistinctly) "This would only happen, if the owner of this house was dead. The real owner!"
Jay: "You brought a vampire to my home?"
Aiden: "This is not your home, you sly!"
Councilor 4: "It's not a proof if we don't see it!"
Aiden looks at everyone fiercely, then takes out his gun and aims at Jay.
Aiden: "Then I'll have one when I'm done!"
Everyone in the room is startled with this, and look at Aiden and Jay with fear.
Misao: "Hello, angel! Just when I'm short of phantoms!"
Then raises her hand, clearly intending to kill her with one move. Meredith freaks, but she is unable to fight back. However, Nathan yells Bonnie to pull the weapon he saw a little far from him, and Bonnie uses magic to do so. When Nathan gets a hold of the weapon, he shoots Misao without waiting a moment. But Meredith saw that he was about to shoot, and Misao saw the same thing from Meredith's mind, so she dodges the bullets Nathan fired without looking. Then gets back up and turns to Nathan. Nathan holds nothing back, and shoots Misao relentlessly. But Misao is so fast and agile that she manages to dodge all the bullets. Then she suddenly tries to pull Nathan's gun to leave him unarmed. But Nathan, apparently saw what she would do, holds on to the weapon and manages to keep it. But the distraction was well enough for Misao to make an attack. She quickly jumps to throw a flying punch, but Nathan jumps aside to dodge it. Then gets up but finds Misao just in front of him. While trying to hide his fear and be brave, he keeps trying to shoot her, but she manages to dodge every single bullet. Suddenly his gun runs empty, and Misao kicks it and lands several punches on him, until he cannot stand up any longer. But before she can make her move to kill him, Stefan and Damon manage to get back up and save Nathan in the nick of time. As the fight continues between brothers and Misao, no one is clearly holding nothing back. Nathan finds himself wanting Stefan and Damon to win so badly.
Misao tries to overpower one of them, but whenever she almost does, she finds herself having to deal with the other. This goes on for a while until brothers drop and start choking her. However, Misao proves she is not one to give up when she grabs Stefan's neck, kicks Damon, and throws Stefan to a tree. But in doing so, she lowered her defenses completely, and Damon uses this to grab her and slam her from one tree to another with his vampire speed. Then she throws her to the ground and starts punching her. But it doesn't take long until Misao makes a counter attack and breaks his arm. That is when Stefan arrives. After hitting Misao's head to the tree nearby, he grabs her one arm and leg, and starts spinning around rapidly. Then yells Meredith to get ready, and throws Misao to her. Meredith, knowing that she can't use wings of destruction, calls her wings of wind. Suddenly the clouds get darker and thunders and lightnings appear, indicating she is mustering a great deal of power to do whatever she is doing. Then in no time, a strong wind occurs, which quickly turns into a tornado. Nathan yells everyone to get back. Misao tries to hold on to the ground, but the tornado is too strong and pulls her regardless. Bonnie quickly grabs two branches, and burns them with her magic. And when Misao is drawn into the tornado completely, she sends the burning branches. Then she yells "Incendia", which fuels the fire. In to time the tornado is filled with fire. The rebels are looking at what is happening with an incredible amazement, including Nathan and Max. Misao is screaming inside, trying to keep the fires away from her by using magic. Upon witnessing such thing, everyone starts to think that it is over for Misao. But suddenly something happens that no one anticipated. Misao manages to break out of the fire tornado. However, instead of coming down to continue fighting, she turns into an eagle while still in the air and flies away.
Meredith stops the wind, and Nathan gets up. The dark clouds disappear, and the sky becomes clear as it was. Meredith, Damon, Stefan and Bonnie relieve due to getting rid of such big danger. But before they express happiness, they see that the crowd is not in the mood. Nathan runs near Meredith.
Nathan: (anxiously) "Meredith, are you okay?"
Meredith: "A little dizzy, but I'll be fine." (looks at Nathan and understands that something's wrong) "Why? What happened?"
Nathan: "It was today! The moment I saw you dying! It was today. This place, this time!"
Meredith: (freaks) "Are you sure?"
Nathan doesn't reply, although his eyes indicate that he is. Then Stefan and Damon arrive near them. Both are looking at the crowd that is gathered around something.
Damon: "Hey future boy! I don't think it was Meredith you saw!"
Upon this all four look at the crowd. Then they understand something is wrong. They rush, and make their ways to middle, only then they see Ulma, killed by a bullet in her chest. Hope is holding her body and crying her eyes out. Nathan understands that it was one of the bullets that he fired to Misao but she dodged. He gasps with horror, then he leaves in hurry.
As he is exhausted and in great pain, he cannot fight back to everyone who are kicking and hitting him relentlessly. He just keeps grunting with pain. But suddenly one of the councilors yell them to stop and look at the guy on the floor. When they do so, they see that the pocketknife is randomly stabbed to the chest of a Japanese guy none of them knows. Upon seeing the dead guy, they all freak out, as they apparently realized that Aiden was telling the truth all along, from the very beginning. Aiden slowly tries to lay on his back. His face is literally covered in blood, and bruises and scars are everywhere. He is in such big pain that he is hardly breathing. A councilor asks if this was the mayor. The one who warned them says he changed in front of him. Apparently they are all feeling guilt for what they just did to Aiden. Two of them raise him, and the others try to apologize. Aiden tries to say this is what they were after from the beginning, to destroy them from inside. He tried to warn them but no one listened. Upon this everyone in the council acknowledge that kitsune is indeed a danger to the entire town and not just vampires, and they quickly come to the decision of staying out of vampires' way if they still want to stop these creatures. One of them tells the two who are holding Aiden to take him to the hospital. Before he leaves, they all express their regret once again. Aiden simply nods, then the two leave with Aiden.
Nathan: (with a cold voice) "Hi."
Meredith: "I'm worried about you."
Nathan: (chuckles nervously) "That's new!"
Meredith: "What do you mean?"
Nathan: "I kept trying to reach you in the last two weeks, but you kept avoiding me."
Meredith: "I thought I was gonna die."
Nathan: "Well, whose fault is that?"
Nathan: "She's dead!" (starts panting) "I should've known!"
Meredith: "You couldn't have known!"
Nathan: "Maybe not. But I should've tried! I should've tried harder!"
Meredith: "It's not your fault, Nathan! No one is meant to see the future!"
Nathan: "But I am! I have this ability for some reason and I know that I could have saved her! Maybe if I looked better, maybe if I wasn't so afraid!"
Nathan: "I thought I couldn't bear seeing you dying, living it again! I was afraid to look! To try!" (looks at Meredith) "I killed her!"
Meredith: "What? No!"
Nathan: "I misled everyone. Made everyone think it was you! I saw that she was gonna die but I thought it was you! It was my fault!"
Meredith: "No, it wasn't!"
Then Meredith hugs him, and he starts crying to her shoulder.
After he feels a little better, he goes near Hope, and says he is sorry. And after what happened today, after the things they've learned, he would understand if she wanted him to leave. But Hope says if he saw her mother in his vision, it means he loved her. And despite she hated him for a moment, her mother would want him to stay, so she wants him to stay too. Upon this Nathan tries to smile, then Hope hugs him. Max comes near them, and they make peace.
One of the rebels claim that they would need a new leader. Max suggests it should be Hope. Several voices are heard that refer to her as "Lady Hope". But Hope says she doesn't have it in her to be a leader. A leader should to be fierce, but also kind and gentle. Should be sharp minded, and should be someone everyone would confide in. Should be able to see the big picture, and be able to make tough decisions when necessary. She couldn't be a leader, but Max could be. Nathan smiles, and says he concurs. Voices from the crowd are heard, saying they also concur. Max looks at Hope, and says he will do his best to be worthy of the support and his position. Hope smiles to him, and says she knows he will. That's why everyone chose him. The crowd applaud their new leader, while Damon, Elena and others are watching them curiously.
Sue: "Hi, dad!"
Aiden quickly draws weapon and aims at her.
Aiden: "Who are you!?"
Sue: "Dad, it's me!"
Aiden: "STOP! Just.. stop!"
Sue: "Dad, you're scaring me!"
Aiden: "Stop it you fiend! Show me your real face! I wanna see who you are!"
Sue: (starts walking to Aiden) "Why? You can't shoot your own daughter?"
Aiden: "You're not my daughter!"
Sue: (she comes to close to him that his weapon's barrel touches her chest) "Then why you haven't pulled the trigger?"
Aiden is feeling helpless, as his finger just won't do it, despite he knows that it's not his daughter. After waiting for a while, Sue smirks, then takes Aiden's gun and hits his head with it. Aiden yells with pain and falls down. When he looks up, he sees his wife.
Alice: "You know what I think. I think we might be doing the wrong thing trying to kill the vampires!"
Aiden: (confused) "What?"
Alice: "They're good, they must be saved! You must save them, my dear husband!"
Aiden: (suddenly understands that his wife is killed. He gets incredibly upset) "Oh god, Alice! What have you done to her?"
Alice: "It was a fine kill, to be honest. She fought back. I liked that. And you know what was the best part? When she screamed! Screamed for her life, screamed for help, for mercy, despite knowing that she would get none of those! I liked reading from her mind that she knew she was gonna die, I loved to see that despair, helplessness. The strong preying on the weak simply just because it can!"
Aiden: (cries) "Since when it was you?"
Alice: "Well not long. Two days only. Soon after I saw that fabulous mind protection spell on your mind, I figured you would be no good to me."
Aiden: "You won't get away with this!"
Alice: (bends down to get her face close to his) "Who's gonna make me pay?" (then starts laughing hysterically)
Aiden: "At least show me who you are!"
Alice: "And would that be your final request?" (Aiden nods slowly. He is clearly too upset) "Okay."
Then Aiden sees his wife turning into another Japanese guy.
Kitsune: "Did you see?"
Aiden looks at him with anger, then quickly grabs his pocketknife and throws it to him. But the kitsune uses magic to stop it before it hits him. Then throws it away and looks at him.
Kitsune: "Tsk tsk tsk tsk.. You see, I showed you my face, because it was your final request. My kind kind of values that. And now that it's granted, well.. As you earthlings say, time for family reunion!"
The last thing Aiden saw is the kitsune's foot coming to his face. Then everything is plunged into darkness.
