OFF WITH MY BROTHER'S HEAD Damon (Ian Somerhalder) had to "kill" Stefan just long enough for Silas to toy with Qetsiyah.
Back at the dance, Dr. Maxfield was dressed as Dr. Jekyl. He wasn't responsible for the whereabouts of his darker half, Mr. Hyde, he joked to Elena. Then Elena went all Never Been Kissed on him and danced with him. YES, IT'S INAPPROPRIATE -- even if Maxfield said she wasn't and never would be one of his students. She's A student. Big news: Maxfield told Elena his theory that a vampire hunted Megan down, ripped her throat out and threw her off the building. And then he said they were never going to see each other again because there are people at this school watching her and her friends and asking questions she doesn’t want them to ask. He suggested she pack her things, drop out, and move back to Mystic Falls. So is he trying to help Elena in some way we've yet to realize?
Tyler finally had the conversation with Caroline: He told her they were back together because Klaus gave them permission to be together and he couldn't live with that. Klaus had killed his mother and gotten away with it; he couldn't think about school and partying. He was there to say goodbye so he could go find a way to destroy Klaus' life. Understandable, on one level. Sounds like he'll be popping up on The Originals.
Qetsiyah did some snooping and found the pendant. She thought Stefan had found her, but it was Silas. We knew from the headache that Stefan was awake again. Damon didn't. Stefan tricked him and snapped his neck. "How's it feel, brother?" Stefan found Qetsiyah and Silas. He beat down Silas and took back his ring. He told her that Silas is working with Damon and everything Silas had said to her was a lie. Payback time.
Silas: "You love me. You know you love me."
Qetsiyah: "I did love you. And then you broke my heart. And now I'm gonna break yours."
She reached into his chest and stopped his heart from working so his veins would dry out and he'd rot from the inside out -- and so the world could see him exactly as he is, a cold grey hideous monster.
She felt peace then? No, not really. She seemed sad.
We learned that Maxfield is Aaron's legal guardian (who doesn't want him to drink and drive). He manages Aaron's trust -- so Aaron is hot and loaded? Maxfield told him to stay away from Elena and to be safe. They're clearly not close.
Damon and Elena found Silas. Elena thought it was good that Silas is out of commission. But Damon knew it wasn't. Because they needed him to get Bonnie back? Or because that meant Stefan just got his memory back?
NEXT: "It's nice to meet you"
