Recap

Early on this week, John Gilbert told Damon what he was after: an invention created by the original John Gilbert. But once John asked if Damon knew of a vampire named Pearl, who supposedly knew something about this, Damon took control of the conversation.

He said John was full of crap because Katherine was BFFs with Pearl. If he truly knew Katherine, he'd be aware of this fact - from there, Damon kicked John out of the house and said he'd kill every member of the Founder's Council if John said anything to them about his identity.

As he dealt with all this information, Damon also discovered why the local blood banks were dry: Stefan robbed them. Dude has a serious drinking problem and he's lying to Elena about it. Damon tries to talk sense into his brother and tries to keep this information to himself, but it's all too much for him to handle. At the Miss Mystic Falls pageant, where Caroline and Elena are among the women competing, Damon tattles on Stefan right in front of him.

He then goes downstairs for a drink, while Stefan tries to tell Elena he's fine. But isn't having it. Stefan leaves in a huff and runs into Amber, another pageant contestant. He compels her and takes her outside and then into the woods. He's trying to fight it, but Stefan is starving. He's hooked on blood. He actually bites into her neck, as viewers wonder if he'll actually kill her.

While this is taking place, Elena and Damon are bonding at the pageant because the latter has taken over as the former's date. They share a nice dance, but soon realize Amber is missing. Running into the woods, they find Stefan feeding on her. They try to yell at him, but only Bonnie - who returned this week, unable to be friends with Elena because she holds the Salvatores responsible for Gram's death - can do so by using her witch powers.

Stefan runs home, a bloody, ashamed mess.

Elena follows and says she can help him through this, but Stefan is angry. He says the blood has simply brought out his true self and Elena should just leave him alone. But she doesn't scare easily. Elena manages to get close to Stefan and hug him - and then inject him with a vervain-filled dart. Damon walks in and carries Stefan into the basement. He gets locked in, as Damon and Elena sit outside, hoping this detox works.

In other storyline news: Anna and Jeremy grew closer, as the latter told the former what he knew from Elena's diary; and Anna admitted she had feelings for Jeremy. Anna also tells Damon all vampires from her house, except Harper, have been kicked out and are gone.

Pearl also comes around, telling Damon she wants to remain in Mystic Falls because her daughter is happy there. As a peace offering, she gives Damon something; an invention John Gilbert made. Pearl stole it awhile ago, thinking it was the vampire-finder John created. But that was something different. Pearl has no idea what this small invention actually does, and we're left to wonder: Is this what Uncle John Gilbert is after?

This episode made the show even more shocking with wild twists and turns that it went to an unbalanced time. It was kind of lame to see Elena dance with Damon but wrong to still see human blood drive Stefan down. I feel sorry for him that he tries to control it but can't. There are so many wrong events that made this show strangely insane. I may see sometimes wrong events but there will always be a helpful solution and I still love this show very much. =) =O ;)

Damon is very charming in this episode, look at his eyes when he is dancing with Elena ! does someone know the music when they dance ? I think it's Within Temptation but I ignore the title, it may be "Forgiven" ? what do you think ?

OH - TildaW, your comment, i don't think Stefan's allowing it at all... I think Elena's still pissed at him for lying about still drinking human blood, and maybe she CHOSE to go wth Damon instead.
