just had a bad dream. Confused and feeling disorientated, Caroline walks
out of her hospital room and asks the nurse a few questions like "where
is my mom and can i get something to eat?". The nurse tells Care to go
back to sleep. Just when Care's about to walk back to her room she
smells something. Caroline waits for the nurse to leave the main hall.
After the nurse leaves, Care walks toward the smell and looks at the IV bag of blood.
The nurse returns and tells Care to go back
to bed once again and this time, Caroline obliges. After the nurse
leaves closing Care's door, she takes out the blood packet. She looks at
it for a while before sucking through the straw. Disgusted, she throws
the packet down on the floor and then unable to resist the urge, starts

that she wanted to be the boring normal high school teenager once again.
Next, Carol and Damon are shown sitting at the
Lockwood mansion having tea. As they talk. Mason and Tyler walk in
through the door laughing. Carol tells Damon that Mason has nothing to
do with the council and there was no reason for them to bring him in now
Damon automatically concentrates on the conversation
Tyler and Mason were having. Mason is asking Tyler what exactly happens
when Tyler gets mad. Tyler tells him he blacks out and he is full of
rage then. Damon is startled when Carol asks him if he wanted more tea.
Caroline is sitting on her hospital bed. She sees a
ray of sunshine and puts her hand where the ray was. She pulls it back
wincing as she realized how much it burned her. Matt opens the door to
her room with a tray of food. He tells her that she should eat but she
replies back saying the food was gross. Matt leans in for a kiss but
Care stays back due to the ray of sunshine between them.
Matt informs her that she'll be discharged tomorrow morning. Care freaks out and insists she should be discharged tonight.
Matt opens the blinds telling her it was too dark but
Caroline jumps out of the bed and leans against the wall away from the
light. She tells Matt to close the curtains and when he doesn't listen
the first time. she demands he closes the curtains and Matt does so.
Damon and Stefan chat casually and Damon teases Stefan
about his animal diet. Stefan asks Damon if he had heard from
Katherine. Damon changes the subject right away telling Stefan his
theory about the Lockwoods not being humans. Stefan tells Damon that
they haven't heard the last from Katherine so surely she was up to
something. Damon tells him that since Katherine had come back to profess
her undying love for him, it was up to him what to do.
Caroline is putting on her jewelry and
when she starts to put on the necklace Elena had given her, she is
surprised when it burns her so she throws it to the floor. She takes out
a another blood packet and drinks from it. Slowly veins and fangs pop
out and she stares in the mirror horrified. She chokes out horrified
sounds and the nurse comes running in worried. Care pins the nurse to
the wall and unknowingly using her "convincing" power tells the nurse to
not tell anyone about what she saw. Caroline lunges for the nurses

casually. A guy named Carter flirts with Bonnie and the two walk off so
Bonnie could "show him what was wrong with the karaoke speakers".

when Tyler walks in. Mason tells Tyler that he was looking for a
moonstone, old, ugly, size of a hockey puck. Tyler tells Mason to ask
his mom about it.

about his age. Jeremy warns Damon that he could tell everyone what Damon
was anytime he wanted. Damon gets upset and grabs Jeremy by the neck

and she starts to cry hysterically. Stefan instructs her how to control
her urge for the blood. He promises her that nothing would happen to her
and hugs her.

they had to bury the body. Bonnie angry and upset does the "mind pain"
thing on Damon. She then turns the tap on and lets the water run until
