Late night at the Salvatore house. Stefan senses that someone has
gotten into the house. Investigating, he is knocked down by a
beautiful blonde vampire who seems about to attack him. Confused, he
realizes that it's his old friend, Lexi, and asks what she's doing
there. Smiling, she says how can you ask that, and they hug as she
wishes him a happy birthday.
The next morning, Lexi tries to persuade Stefan to leave Mystic
Falls when he tells her that the townspeople are aware of vampires.
He says that he can't because of Elena. Picking up the photograph of
Katherine, Lexi says that she hopes that Elena is better than
Katherine, the last girl he got 'all sprung over.' He reminds her
that she never even knew Katherine. Lexi wants to know where Damon
is and Stefan says that he's probably out inflicting misery
somewhere. Stefan tells Lexi that he's really glad that she came to
see him and she asks what they're going to do for his birthday
because he's turning 162 years old.
In town, Sheriff Forbes questions the teens about Vicki's
disappearance. All Jeremy can remember is what Damon compelled him
to remember…that Vicki left town but that he thinks it's for the
best. Afterward, Elena tells Stefan that she doesn't think the
sheriff suspected the truth but Elena still says that Stefan has to
stay away from her.
Damon surprises Lexi and they trade sarcasms. She warns him not to
ruin her time with Stefan or she'll hurt him and, since she's older
than he is, she grabs him by the throat to prove that she can do it.
Bonnie's grandmother tells her to wear the amber crystal necklace
that belonged to their ancestor, Emily, and that a witch's talisman
is powerful and will protect her. At the Gilbert house, Jenna
laments that Logan left town with only a goodbye e-mail and both
Jenna and Elena are surprised to see Jeremy actually doing homework.
Damon brings a box of vervain blooms to Sheriff Forbes and asks if
they have any leads on who the vampire is. She says that they have
to consider now that the vampire might be able to walk around in
daylight and they will have to watch whoever has come to town since
the murders began. Damon promises to help.
Bonnie comes to see Elena and finds her depressed because she and
Stefan broke up, although Elena doesn't tell Bonnie anything about
Stefan being a vampire. Sympathetic about the break-up, Bonnie says
that she'll cheer Elena up and magically makes feathers float and
fly around the room, revealing that everything her grandmother said
was true and that Bonnie is a witch.
Caroline runs into Damon in town and tries to brush him off until he
compels her to think she's glad to see him. He tells her that she's
going to throw a party that night at the Grill and invite lots of
people. When she asks why, he says that she's going to help him
"solve" the town's vampire problem and he wants the amber crystal
necklace back from Bonnie.
Lexi quizzes Stefan about Elena. He says that she has to want him
for himself without any vampire tricks. When Lexi drinks from a bag
of human blood, Stefan moves away, saying that he can't start
drinking it because he might not be able to stop. Lexi says that she
tried Stefan's animal blood diet for a few weeks but it didn't work
for her. Damon arrives and tells them about the party that night at
the Grill. He says they need to go to be seen with everyone and to
blend in. Lexi asks Stefan to go, too.
Elena wants to know why Bonnie told her about being a witch if her
grandmother wanted it to be a secret and Bonnie says that she's her
best friend and she can't keep a secret from her. Elena looks guilty
about keeping Stefan's secret from Bonnie.
Lexi gets ready for the party and says that Stefan has to go, too.
She talks about his previous birthdays that they've spent together,
being drunk on the Statue of Liberty and jumping naked into the
Trevi Fountain. While he's upstairs getting dressed, Elena arrives
at his house and meets Lexi, who thinks at first that she is
Katherine. Elena leaves, believing that Stefan has already moved on
to someone else.
Lexi confronts Stefan, asking him what he's thinking by getting
involved with someone who looks just like Katherine. Lexi says that
Katherine and Elena must be related but Stefan says that he doesn't
know if they are or not. Stefan admits that Elena's resemblance to
Katherine is what first drew him to her but that Elena is warm, kind
and caring and not at all like Katherine. Lexi realizes that Stefan
is in love with her and Stefan confirms that he is.
The party is under way later at the Grill. All Damon is interested
in is getting the amber crystal back. Stefan comes to Elena's house
and tells her that Lexi is his oldest friend but there is nothing
more between them. Elena tells him how hard it is that she has to
keep so many secrets from everyone she loves. He wants her to come
with him to the party, since it's his birthday, but Elena says that
she's staying home.
Caroline tries to get the crystal necklace back from Bonnie but when
Caroline touches it, it shocks her.
When Caroline tells Damon that she didn't get the crystal, he says
that she is stupid and useless.
Lexi forces Stefan to dance with her while outside, Damon, angry,
sees a young couple hiding in an alley, kissing. Damon attacks and
bites the young man, killing him.
Stefan has fun playing pool with Lexi. Damon returns and sees that
Elena has come to the party, after all. She wants to know what Damon
did to Jeremy because he's stopped doing drugs and started doing
homework. Damon says that all he did was take away Jeremy's
suffering. Bonnie wants to explain to Caroline about the necklace
but Caroline refuses to listen, saying that Damon called her shallow
Outside the Grill, a sheriff's deputy finds the young man's dead
body and radios for help. Inside, Lexi tells Elena that she must
love Stefan or she wouldn't have come there. Lexi admits that the
love of her own life was human and must have felt the same way that
Elena is feeling. Stefan overhears their conversation and later
thanks Lexi for advising Elena to give their relationship a chance.
Outside, Sheriff Forbes arrives and starts to question the dead
man's crying girlfriend about who killed him. Inside, Stefan thanks
Elena for coming to the party. A drunk Caroline gets sympathy from
Matt, complaining that she doesn't mean to be shallow. Matt is
taking Caroline out to drive her home when they run into her mother,
the sheriff, who sees that Caroline is drunk.
Lexi grills Damon about what he's really doing in Mystic Falls and
he says that he has a diabolical master plan. Sheriff Forbes brings
the dead man's girlfriend into the Grill to see if she can identify
who attacked her boyfriend. She points to the bar where Damon and
Lexi are talking. The Sheriff, confident that Damon is not the
vampire, injects Lexi with vervain and the deputies drag her out.
Damon pretends to be surprised.
Stefan sees what's happening and follows. Lexi vamps out and attacks
the deputies. Arriving too late to help, Stefan and Elena watch
helplessly as Sheriff Forbes shoots Lexi several times but regular
bullets don't stop her. Damon appears out of the shadows and stakes
Lexi. Stunned and dying, Lexi asks him why and he says it's part of
his plan. She falls to the ground, dead, and Damon turns to the
horrified sheriff, pretending to be concerned if she is okay.
Later, Sheriff Forbes arrests the bartender for giving drinks to her
underage daughter, then thanks Damon for what he did, saying that
the vampire nightmare is finally over.
Matt brings Caroline home and, feeling unloved, she begs him to not
leave her alone. Back in town, Stefan vows to kill Damon and tells
Elena that she was right to stay away from him.
Stefan attacks Damon at home. Damon says that he was just trying to
get them off their trail but Stefan doesn't buy it. He pulls a
wooden stake out and stakes Damon, missing his heart, and says that
Damon saved his (Stefan's) life and now Stefan is sparing Damon's,
so they're even. Stefan says they're through and walks away. Damon
falls to the floor, badly wounded, and has just enough strength to
pull the stake out.
Sleeping in her own bed, Bonnie has a nightmare about running
through the woods, where she sees her ancestor, Emily, who tells
Bonnie, "It's coming." Bonnie wakes up and finds herself in her PJs
and robe, but lying on the ground outside the ruins of the old town
