So this is the famous Stefan Salvatore
I've been hearing so much about.
She's pure vampire and you're no more
than a diluted bloodline.
- Where you going?
- You think I'm lying?
They're out running a little errand
Heh-heh. Getting me to laugh.
the one who drank
his wife's blood...
You're all road-trippy and gross.
The other half, Stefan...
when Carol Lockwood
called and told me about you...
- It has to work, it's the only option.
- Why are you trying to fix me?
- They know.
- That means he's here.
You compelled me to forget.
What can I say? I'm a thrill seeker.
You don't have to negotiate
your brother's freedom.
To a vampire, that's nothing.
To you, that's half your life.
He did. He will again.
He hates me.

Klaus puts a plan in motion that will give him even more power, but even with the unwilling participation of werewolf Ray Sutton, things don’t go exactly as Klaus had planned. Damon and Alaric reluctantly go along with Elena’s new strategy to find
Stefan, leading Damon into a dangerous fight with an unexpected enemy. Jeremy turns to Matt for help as he continues to try to understand what the ghosts from his past want from him. Unaware that Caroline is in need of his help, Tyler faces an emotional confrontation with his mother.
We thought we had them
outside of Memphis.
Uh, rough week.
I'm a little stressed. You?
We'll be out of there
before the moon's full.
Problem is, I don't know how to stop.
Can I offer you a drink?
In a couple hours, the full moon's gonna
rise just above that ridge.
That's John Gilbert's ring.
Something you'll learn...
- You gave up on him, Damon.
- I didn't give up on him, Elena.
Where did he go?
Know what, Tyler?
Everything I read said that personal
items help build a stronger connection.
- You gotta go.
- Matt, please.
All right, that's the last of the vervain.
Tyler, what is it? Just tell me.
I thought you were checked out
of taking care of people.
It was weird.
You know, all the memories and...
No, she didn't.

On the morning of Elena’s 18th birthday, Caroline is busy planning a party, but Elena is focused on searching for any clues that might help her discover where Stefan is. Damon is also searching for Stefan, while trying to protect Elena and keep her
from doing anything that would draw Klaus’ attention. Meanwhile, Klaus and Stefan are busy trailing a werewolf named Ray Sutton. Now working at the Mystic Grill along with Matt, Jeremy is struggling to understand why he keeps seeing the ghosts of Vicki and Anna since he was brought back to life by Bonnie’s magic. Meanwhile, Alaric does his best to watch over Elena and Jeremy, while dealing with his grief over Jenna’s death. Finally, Caroline and Tyler face a new and unexpected challenge.
- Did she find something?
- Animal attack in Memphis.
- Well, would you be a dear...?
- I think you can probably get it yourself.
What if I was indecent?
- We haven't had one in a while.
- Okay. I'll check it out.
Not so fast, mate. You only just got here.
Pun intended, Ray. Heh.
He puts the bodies back together.
Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna explode.
You told me to tell you if I saw anything.
I'll make sure that my brother
doesn't bother us anymore.
I promised not to buy you anything,
so don't worry, I didn't pay for it.
I'm sure it's a lot more interesting
You're wide-eyed, looking for an excuse
Ten o'clock broadcast.
She'll be here in a little bit.
Aren't you guys mortal enemies?
- Andie wants me to pick her up.
- Your fake, compelled girlfriend...
You can't get on with your life until you've
made a wish and blown out the candles.
- Party central.
- Where are you?
maybe I haven't made my point.
Hey, you missed the cake.
- What happened in the car, man?
- What are you gonna do now?
- It's time for step two, Ray.
You're 18. You can do all this alone now.
