At the Grill, while Tyler and Matt discussed Liv's hotness, Tyler realized he couldn't hear what she and Jeremy were saying. That's because she did a silencing spell. Cheesy, but I appreciate them addressing Tyler's hybrid hearing capabilities. Since Jeremy is a Hunter, he can't be mind-controlled by Travelers, who Liv says are like witches' ugly stepsister. They have a grudge against anyone who draws their magic from nature. "Something about witches cursing the land to turn it against them." What does that mean? Not that I care, really. Travelers are on the move and headed to Mystic Falls because the world actually does revolve around Elena, Liv said. If Jeremy wants to keep her safe, he'll help Liv figure out what they’re up to. She got the text that Hazel was dead, and it was time for Plan B. She left, sending Tyler flying when he tried to stop her. So now they know she's not a newbie witch.

Damon and Elena continued to bicker in the school until Damon found them a quiet hallway in which he could pin her up against a locker and admit he doesn't know what to say or do or think about their relationship. "All I know is that right now I want to rip your clothes off right here in the middle of this hall and throw you in one of these classrooms and kiss every square inch of your body while a bunch of people that drive minivans listen wishing they were us." This time when they decided it was a bad idea, he walked away. But holy s---. "While a bunch of people that drive minivans listen wishing they were us." Damon. Damon. Damon. [Pause while I fan myself.]

More sexy bickering was happening between Caroline and Enzo. Talk of whether she was ready to kill innocent Tom was interrupted when they heard his heartbeat. They went downstairs and found him hooked up to IVs. He was in a coma state. He came to right as Caroline was about to break his neck. She compelled him to trust her, and then just when you thought she'd make it quick, she did: She snapped Enzo's neck and told Tom she was getting him out of there. Caroline is good!

Jeremy called Bonnie and told her Liv had said Elena was in danger. He thinks she's up to something, so he was going to find Elena. She was at the school fantasizing about having hot sex with Damon in the chemistry room where they were ignoring a presentation. I'm glad that was a daydream because it was too cheesy to be real. Did I watch it again though? Yes. She needed some air so she went to shop class to splash some water on her face. Liv was there. She pinned Elena to a wall and grabbed a stake. So now she's bad?

Liv said her coven did everything they could to protect Elena, now she's just too dangerous. She was about to stake her when Damon came in and sent Liv flying. Yes, Liv, if you show up to kill somebody, don't waste time feeling bad about it.
