With the tomb vampires set to descend on Mystic Falls during the Founder's Day celebration, John knocks out the sheriff and sets off the Gilbert device. Through a high-pitched sound, only heard by vampires, it will render these creatures immobile, so officers can swoop in and inject them with vervain.

This is what goes down, as the plan takes place during a fireworks display. Damon is verained and taken away, along with a few tomb vampires - and Mayor Lockwood, who falls to the ground after the device goes off. Tyler was also driving during this time, with Matt and Caroline in the backseat. He's affected by the device and crashes. Caroline is taken to the hospital with internal bleeding, while Tyler's eyes go all werewolf-like when paramedics check on him. Guess werewolves are also affected by this device, which explains the Mayor's situation:

He's in the basement with other vampires, including Damon. Before John sets the building on fire, he stakes Anna. She's dead. Damon witnesses this. He also watches as another vampire kills the mayor. How will he get out? By Stefan running to the building. He was dragged to safety by Alaric, but can't get in to the basement because of the fire. Fortunately, Bonnie arrives and uses her power to put it out. Stefan takes Damon to safety, while the other vampires perish.

But all is FAR from good. Jeremy is at home, depressed over Anna's death. Damon shows up and says he actually felt badly for Anna when she died, as his humanity is showing through. After turning down Damon's request to erase his memory, Jeremy asks him if it's easier to be a vampire because they feel nothing. Damon said it used be. Soon after he leaves, Jeremy drinks the blood Anna had given him - when she wanted him to turn - and takes a lot of pills. When the episode ends, we're left wondering if this worked.

MEANWHILE, Elena comforts Stefan about her feelings for him. She says she loves him. Cut to the Gilbert house, where Damon has just left and meets Elena outside. He thanks her for caring about him because, hey, that's the reason Bonnie (who we also see tell Stefan that she'll take Damon down if another drop of blood is spilled. She now knows her power and means BUSINESS!) helped save him: for Elena. Damon leans in to kiss Elena and she goes with it. Eeek!

Jenna catches them in the act and tells Elena to come inside. She does so. She walks into the kitchen and John is there. He tries to explain to her what happened between him and Isobel, because Elena knows he's her father (Stefan told her earlier). Elena listens, and then grabs a knife, chops off his ring/finger and thrusts it into his chest. IT's KATHERINE!!!

Cut back to the front door, where the real Elena walks into her house. She hears something in the kitchen and goes to check on the noise, as we fade to black...

Episode Number:

I LOVED IT TOO!!! I think this is the best series ever! I love both Damon and Stefan! I think the return of Katherine is perfect but I don't know how Elena will take it. Will Katherine try and kill her? I think Damon knew something when he kissed what he thought was Elena. If you really watched his face and the way he touched his lips then you would see he knows something is strange. I think he felt something and in a way knows it is Katherine. I think he will come storming in the house at the begining of the next season only to save the day or something. I want Elena with Stefan but I like the way Damon is falling for her too. I love the twists and turns this show is taking. It makes my stomach turn flips and I like shows that do that. Makes you keep coming back for more! I CAN'T WAIT TIL SEPTEMBER!!!!!!! Let the months fly by!!!


I think she will meet cathrin and daymon and stefen will come over and kill her


I LOVED the ending, that bastard deserved it . But I HAAAATE that they killed off Anna, I dont even like this show much anymore bcuz of that, stupid f****** writers . Anna and Jeremy were a perfect fit, why do writers to shows have to ruin the perfect things in them ?? Not cool . Least I can buy the 1st season and recap on their love story, I love it more than Elena & Stefans . And I agree, theyre prolly gunna make it so that Jeremy doens't turn even though he drank her blood and took those pills, and then hes just gunna fall in love with sumone else again and theyre gunna kill her off too -_- cuz they gotta be gay like that . He shoulda just turned and left with her, or at least locked the damn door to the bathroom while she was having issues so they couldn't have taken her . Thanks for ruining a good thing Vampire Diaries writers :) douches .
Jeremy and Anna forever


Dude Damon needs to BACK OFF! to bad that when he tells stefan that he kissed her(Kathrine) Stefan is going to get mad and Kathrine is going to be kathrine and play with damon and stefan! I LOVE STEFAN HE IS MY LOVE!


I am so pissed off at the writers ! I love Jeremy and to put him through this crap again! He should have left town with Anna and turned. Now I garantee that in season 2 Jeremy wakes up in the stupid hospital stomach pumped and he's not a vampire cause the writers feel it's more gay that way. He should have just gotten the courage to stab himself I would love to see him kick the crap out of both John, too bad he's dead. And then kick the crap out of Damon as well . Elena and Katherine can both go to hell. It's rather very "CW" their plot love triangle just to stretch that out. Get it done , have s*x , make vamp babies and go live a happy life near a blood bank.


Absolutely love Stelena. They are meant to be together. Soulmates. :)


ok are you guys mentally challenged or what? HE KISSED KATHERINE!!! NOT ELENA!!!! IT WAS KATHERINE PRETENDING TO BE ELENA. yes he still tried to kiss elena but that fact that it wasnt her chnages the whole thing no matter his intentions!!! wtf???? poor john! i hate katherine soo fing bad!!!


You people need to read the original four books. Elena and Stefan end up together. She does NOT kiss Damon at all. Her and Stefan are soul mates, and although she is intrigued by Damon, both her and Stefan cannot live without the other. So shut up.


yeh i was thinking da same y does it have 2 end


Damon is a BASTERD!
