Hope: It's a little dramatic, don't you think? Alaric: Not as dramatic as the message Landon left me saying he had something urgent to discuss. Anything you wanna share? Hope: Only that I'm pretty sure the monsters are after him this time. Alaric: And you didn't think that that's something I should know? Hope: More that I was afraid of what you were gonna say after that. Alaric: Hope, you need to go back to the Salvatore School. Hope: That was it. Alaric: Not for your sake. For theirs. Maybe Landon isn't that important to you, but if Malivore wants him, you should go. Hope: Okay, I'll take care of it, but from a distance. Alaric: Okay, what am I missing here, Hope? Hmm. You told me the truth and everything worked out fine. Hope: Not the whole truth. Landon and I, we were in love. Real love. Epic love, if that even exists. Alaric: I can assure you it does. Hope: Now he's with Josie, and they don't know what we were to each other. And I'm just afraid that if I tell them, she's gonna hate me forever. He's going to hate me or I'm going to hate myself because I made us all miserable, so I can't tell them. Not yet.
