The Vampire Diaries s05e06 Episode Script

Handle With Care

Previously on "The Vampire Diaries" - I'm Elena.
- I'm Stefan.
Love brought me to Mystic Falls, - love drove me away.
- I love you, Damon.
- Silas.
- Hello, my shadow self.
And even though we've lost almost everything Bonnie's dead, Elena.
I have no idea who you people are.
There are people at this school watching you and your friends.
Drop out and move back to Mystic Falls.
Our hope is not lost.
Silas' whole bad guy plan was to kill himself and reunite with his dead girlfriend Amara.
I want to use his death to bring Bonnie back to life.
Silas was my true love.
I never said I was his.
He wanted to be with Amara.
Silas needs every last drop of your blood to cure himself, Katherine.
Aah! Aah! No, Damon.
I don't want to die.
Am I in hell? Sure a little thing like you can eat all that? I'm celebrating.
I thought I was gonna die.
I didn't.
So now I'm free to be whatever I want to be.
Heh.
It's a good day.
Love the hair, by the way.
Bold choice.
this is nice.
It is nice.
Quiet, still, peaceful.
I like our life when it's like this.
But it is our life, which probably means that somebody's gonna walk through that door and shatter it.
Oh, don't say that.
In 10, 9 Just let me enjoy the moment.
Damon, today is the day that we're gonna bring Bonnie back.
It's a good day.
Damon, it's a good day.
greetings one.
Good morning, frenemies.
Ah.
You know, I'm only a few hours into my old life as a witch, but somehow, the sun feels warmer.
Probably because I'm not cursed with having to outlive it any more.
What's with the home invasion, Silas? Well, Damon, after 2,000 years of a miserable existence, I finally get to die.
Morning, sleepyhead.
Sleep well? Oh.
Tessa.
Hi.
You're confused.
Is that the amnesia or the Tequila? Um, I think both.
I'm still trying to piece together last night.
We bonded over our misery.
There were body shots.
The misery lifted.
Here.
Berries.
Thank you.
What's got you in such a good mood? I happened to see a text message pop up on your phone after you crashed last night.
Warning from your friends.
Silas took the cure.
He's a witch.
He's mortal, and now I can kill him.
Get up, gorgeous.
Your doppelganger dies today.
We all know that Tessa as a real vengeful bitch.
Your doppelganger Amara died at her hands, but today after 2,000 years, Amara and I will finally reunite.
All right.
Skip the mushy parts.
Look.
My girl here is just trying to have a good day, and there are promises she's expecting you to keep.
Oh.
You don't think that I keep my promises? You said that now you're a witch again you would bring Bonnie back from the other side.
I did, and I can.
And you promised Damon that you would do that if he helped you.
Yeah.
But you're kind of evil.
No offense.
None taken.
So I'm just trying to figure out how I can trust that one of your last acts in this world will be to bring my best friend back.
Did you want me to pinky swear? She's trying to have a good day.
Just tell her how it's gonna go down.
I just want to destroy the other side so I don't get stuck in that pit of a purgatory when I finally do kill myself.
Before I do that, I'll bring Bonnie back, and being the amazing and incredible and all-powerful witch that I am, I can totally do both things.
I just have to find the anchor first and destroy it.
The anchor? Silas is looking for the anchor.
It's the object I used to bind the spell when I created the other side.
Destroy it, the spell's broken.
No more supernatural limbo, and Silas can die and find peace.
I'd rather his lying, cheating ass not have that.
Great, fine.
I approve.
Where is it? New Jersey? The supernatural other world is bound by an object in Snooki's backyard? It's in a stockyard, and it's being shipped out, so we really need to hello, hunter.
Banner day for you, huh? Didn't you and the Bennett witch used to tch, tch.
Hey.
Knock it off, ok? It's ok, Jer.
We all want the same thing today Silas dead, Bonnie alive.
Aka, put the damn crossbow down, Pocahontas.
We're just supposed to believe that he's gonna bring Bonnie back to life out of the goodness of his heart? Well, I hope not.
I mean, I am kind of a monster.
You know, guys, I'm feeling really ganged up on right now, ok? I would hate to lose my temper and do something Crazy.
Heh.
Ahh.
Man, I really love being a witch again.
I feel like I'm constantly reinventing myself.
I'm like a supernatural Madonna, don't you think? So Silas read your mind and figured out where the anchor is? Now what? You now that old, ancient story I told you about the travelers? Oh, wait.
You don't.
I fried your brain and took your memories.
Sorry.
The travelers You know how Silas wants to destroy the other side so he can be at peace with that slut Amara that he calls his one true love? The travelers don't want that.
Why not? Not important.
Scratch that.
Very important.
I'm just not gonna answer it.
Um, you know what? I think I still need to be drunk to understand this story.
The travelers have been in possession of the anchor for 2,000 years.
They constantly move it so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands, and they're not gonna let him get near it, at least not before I kill him.
Yeah? Well, what if they fail? He won't destroy it.
He won't be able to.
Why not? Let's just file that under the not gonna answer it category.
All right.
We got to get going.
You grab a crowbar or 4 from the garage.
What for? Does it matter? You, you're not going.
Men only.
Are you serious? He's not serious.
No, he's not serious.
Actually, I am 100% serious.
She's a freaky carbon copy of my one true love Amara.
You can understand why I don't want to stare at her imposter face all day.
That makes no sense.
If would make complete sense if you were ever in love with anybody who looked exactly like her.
This is ridiculous.
We're bringing my best friend back from the dead.
I'm going.
Aah! Hey! Next one goes in the heart.
Now hurry up.
I only have until sundown before Tessa tries to stop me.
Well, the one good thing about having amnesia is that I don't remember how I got in the middle of all this.
Rest easy, sweet pea.
Don't you worry about the details.
Silas is going to die today, and he will spend eternity on the other side as far away from Amara and peace as possible.
I have it all covered.
You don't scheme as long as I have without considering every possibility.
What's wrong? Silas put a spell on this cabin.
We're stuck here until sundown.
How do you know that? Because I taught him the damn spell.
I don't want to know if Tyler called, so don't even tell me.
Do you want to do small appliances or toiletries? I'd compel a cute boy to pack for us, but I don't think I want to see a cute boy ever again except for Jesse, who is conveniently not answering his phone.
Um, we're moving out? Hello! Dr.
Maxfield thinks we're vampires, you know, threatened to expose us, told us to drop out.
That sucks.
Ahem.
What the hell are you doing in my dorm, Katherine? I just need a place to crash.
What? I loathe you.
I'm desperate, ok? Damon kicked me out, Stefan doesn't remember me, and I just spent my last $20 on a meal that I didn't even get to enjoy.
Aw.
And how is any of this my problem? Look at you.
Moving out, giving up? That's very un-Caroline of you.
You need me bad.
In exchange for a place to stay and Elena's meal card, I will help you deal with Dr.
whoever.
Dr.
Maxfield.
He teaches bio.
Heh.
I'm sorry.
What? You're scared of a teacher? Aw, honey, you really need to take a crash course on villain 101, but luckily for you, I have an honorary doctorate.
What do you say, roomie? Stefan's phone.
Who's this? Uncanny.
Your doppelganger voice is exactly like Amara's, so whiny.
Tessa, where's Stefan? He's here.
Well, not here here.
He hopped in the shower.
Between us girls, he works up quite the sweat, but I guess you know that.
May I leave him a message? Yeah.
Remind him that you're a crazy bitch.
I would, but I think that's maybe his type.
He's with Tessa.
Why does he keep going back to her? Look.
Who knows? Amnesia Stef's a fickle little fellow.
Wait.
You didn't tell Elena what we you did to Stefan? Tell me what? Well, Silas needed his psychic juju to get into Tessa's head, and the only way to temporarily reactivate his ability was to break Stefan's neck a couple times.
As if he didn't hate us enough.
Damon, oh, God.
I'm going over there.
She should really.
Tessa's bad business.
No.
Just let Stefan have his space.
It's like you said, he's already mad enough.
Sounds like he's more mad at you.
Maybe he and I can find some common ground.
Knock, knock.
Knock, knock.
Who's there? The mayor.
The mayor who? Well, who? No one.
That's the joke.
No one's there because I killed the mayor.
You're a dick.
Subject 62547.
Blood film analysis.
Cellular growth rate is phenomenal.
As expected What are you doing here? Well, if it isn't Stefan's fated love.
Where is he? Come on in.
Who am I to stand in the way of destiny? Elena.
You shouldn't have walked through that door.
I'm really sorry.
I wouldn't have let Damon do what he did to you.
Sure you would have.
You have this annoying tendency to do anything he tells you to do.
I'm no shrink, but I think it's called codependence.
Look.
I get that you're upset with us for pretty much everything, but do you really think that sleeping with Tessa is gonna solve anything? Who said I was sleeping with Tessa? I am so bad with messages.
Oh, look! Elena called.
She's wondering why you're here.
I may have embellished for effect.
Ok.
I just came by to make sure that she hadn't done some, like, "fatal attraction" spell on you, but now that I know that you're good, I'm gonna go.
Yeah.
You really shouldn't have come inside.
Thank God.
How do you it, Damon? How you can stand being here while your girlfriend sits at home worrying about her doppelganger soul mate? It's called being secure.
I'm assuming you know a little bit about that by the way you wear your hair.
Please don't tell me you believe in this doppelganger prophecy crap.
Crap? What do you mean crap? Do you not notice the universe trying to mirror my love for Amara by bringing our doppelgangers together? You do realize that by destroying the other side that you are personally moving heaven and earth to be together? That's not fate, you idiot.
It's you being a crazy person.
Ok.
Where is this stupid anchor thing? I have no idea.
What do you mean you have no idea? Give me some credit, man.
I did psychically dive into Tessa's mind to see this specific warehouse.
What does it look like? Again, I have no idea.
Tessa created it after she locked me away in a tomb for 2,000 years and left me to starve.
Remember? Remote island, creepy hallucinations? Wait.
You don't know where it is or what it looks like? It binds a spell to a supernatural hell dimension.
It's not gonna look like a freaking Ikea sink.
What did you inject him with? I don't know.
It just said avoid contact with eyes and do not ingest.
Oops.
That's Etorphine.
There you go.
What are you doing, Elena? We're draining the vervained blood out of your system so I can compel you to forget that Elena and I are vampires.
Wait.
What? You'll kill me! Shh.
I'm just I'm trying to do some math.
Ok.
So if the average male has 5 liters of blood in his system That's about right.
Then carry the one.
Just round up.
Perfect! 4.
7 pints.
Should I use the right arm of the left arm? Untie me.
I'll find the vein myself.
You will kill me.
Give me.
It's not my first rodeo.
Can you give me one of those tubing thingies and, um, some tape? Oh, my God.
It's totally working.
Ta-da.
So Doctor You tell me Who else knows about us? If you were willing to kill me, you wouldn't have gone through all this trouble.
You should have left when I told you to.
They're on to you.
Who's they? The people you want to expose us to, that secret society thingie that you belong to? There's a gathering today at Whitmore house.
The society's using it to suss out potential candidates.
They were going to invite you until they started suspecting you were a vampire.
So all I have to do is convince them that Elena Gilbert isn't a vampire? Done.
They'll never let you in, and a vampire can never get past the threshold.
What did that crate do to you? Bonnie, what are you doing here? Didn't want to miss the excitement.
It's not every day a girl comes back from the dead.
Don't jinx it.
I'm not jinxing it.
I'm being realistic.
It's not a dime store spell, Jer.
When I brought you back, it killed me, remember? What I meant was it's just It's not something I'm gonna count on, ok? Not ok.
Have some faith.
If you believe that it can work and I believe it can work, then it will work.
Just say it.
You need to say it.
It will work.
Thank you.
Jer, just so we're clear, I would die 100 times over just to have you standing here alive in front of me.
Before today is over We're gonna know what that Feels like.
Quit dawdling.
We have to find this thing before the travelers show up.
Why are they so interested in this anchor? They hate me for creating the immortality spell, and they know the anchor's the only thing standing in between me and my soul mate, and every love story needs that one thing that just keeps getting in the way.
Kind of like you, Damon.
You know, you might be an all-powerful witch Is that what you called it? Yeah.
But I will happily kill you if you keep that up.
Oh, no, you won't, not until I bring your girlfriend's bestie back.
Well, isn't this a pleasant surprise? You ain't seen nothing yet.
Since I'm occupied at the moment, I need you to go ahead and kill Silas for me.
Gladly, but he's such a control freak that he wants to off himself himself.
You mean, after he destroys the other side? Yeah.
That's not gonna happen, plus I want him dead before he has the pleasure of finding the anchor.
Yeah.
I'm not following.
Kill him now.
Damon! Did I mention I lured your girlfriend here to me.
I used the oldest trick in the book jealousy of Stefan! Thought you should know.
Aah! Aah! Tessa! Stop.
Stop it! Aah! Aah! Aaaaah! I can't kill him yet.
He has to do something for me first.
Is that something more important than Elena? Because Silas put a spell on this house and bound it to the sun, which means we're trapped here until sundown, which means you have until then to kill Silas, or I kill Elena.
With a face like Amara's, it might be cathartic.
Bye now.
Whoa.
Wait! Miss Gilbert.
You know me? I'm Diane Freeman.
We met the night your roommate died.
Of course.
Crazy night.
Anyway, I am here for the shindig.
I didn't realize you'd be joining us.
Did I forget to RSVP? Oh, sorry.
I've just been so busy with my studies.
We just started the tea.
Got any food? Mmm.
What? Are you the sandwich police? Just trying to figure out why Wes told me to stay away from you.
Do I know you? Aaron.
We met yesterday.
You changed your hair.
It's Aaron.
Duh.
Hi.
So what are you doing here? Are you part of The secret society? The what? You know The society.
I still have no idea.
Either you're genuinely clueless, or you're very good at keeping secrets.
Is that your tooth? No.
What is happening to me? Ahem.
Look at all the incredible things they've dreamt up to do with food.
Pineapple on pizza? Hmm.
So sad.
Let me guess.
Gluten-free? How did you get here? Excuse me? Here, alive, from the other side.
How did you come back to life? Oh, yeah.
That.
You can blame your friend Bonnie for that.
She opened the door and then distracted herself when she brought your little brother back to life, so I just walked right through when she died.
Well, today, Silas was gonna bring her back to life after he got the anchor, but you told my boyfriend, who has never put anyone's life before mine, including his own, to kill Silas before he could do that.
So, no, I'm not sad about the pizza.
Look.
Why don't we forget about the pizza? What do you say I make something? Ok.
Roasted duck.
Ooh.
Wait.
Do you have a duck? No, but maybe I can lure one inside.
Got Elena in.
How much smarter could a duck be? Go for it.
All right.
Ha ha! We can't kill Silas.
Silas is the only one that can bring Bonnie back, and he's not gonna bring her back until right before he destroys the other side.
Yeah? Well, Tessa wants to do it now.
Something tells me patience isn't her strong suit.
Damon, you promised.
You promised Elena that she would see Bonnie again.
You don't think I'm aware of that? But if Tessa kills Elena, guess who's not gonna make it to Bonnie's welcome home party.
Plan's off, Jeremy.
Bonnie's not coming back.
Sorry.
It's ok, Jeremy.
Bonnie She's my sister.
Jeremy Gilbert, do you not know me at all? Is there a part of you that thinks for one minute that I'd let one of my friends die just so I could come back to life? I'm dead, Jer, and as much as I want to come back, maybe I'm just supposed to accept it.
We were so close.
I know we were.
Go help him kill Silas.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
I've met a lot of witches in my day.
Never quite heard that one before.
Let me guess.
Travelers.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Aah! Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Sul opreem chele kouzlo.
Why do you witches always go for the daylight ring? I was about to do your little eurotribe a favor.
I want to kill Silas, too.
That's the problem.
We don't want him dead yet.
Well, that's not gonna work for me.
You're oddly calm, which only adds to my complete and utter terror.
Sorry.
I spaced.
You spaced? Caroline, I would have bled to death.
You know what? I just broke up with my boyfriend for good.
My heart is in pieces.
Sue me for having a moment.
My apologies.
Is the moment over? Yes, it is.
Now answer my questions truthfully.
What is the secret society? It's called Augustine.
Augustine? I've never heard of it.
That's the whole point.
And how do you become a member? Most recruits are legacies, but some of us were chosen for our extraordinary talents.
And what is your extraordinary talent? Being brilliant.
Not to mention that you're willing to lie on autopsy reports like my roommate's.
You knew that she was killed by a vampire.
Is that why you covered up her death? No.
I covered up her death because it wasn't just any vampire.
It was the Augustine vampire.
Hang on.
Ok.
So your creepy elitist society also has their own vampire? Who is it? Wes, you in there? It's Diane Freeman.
You were wrong.
Elena Gilbert and I aren't vampires.
We're just regular freshmen.
You're light-headed because you gave blood this morning.
Forget everything that happened here.
Wes? So you are here.
Of course I'm here.
Why? Because it's 5:00.
You missed the Whitmore party.
What? I was working.
The day must have gotten away from me.
That's not all you missed.
Guess who I watched strut right through the front door.
Elena Gilbert.
Clearly not a vampire.
What made you so convinced she was? I Have no idea.
I guess I was wrong.
Try this and let me know what you think.
All right.
Mmm.
It's good.
Yeah? Yeah.
All right.
Ok.
I get it.
You hate me.
You may not have any memories, Stefan, but I do.
This person, she's not the type of person that you would like.
That's not very nice, especially considering I've allowed you to remain alive until sundown.
Oh.
Almost sundown.
Elena, don't say a word.
I got this.
I know you think that I hate you, but I don't.
I won't let her hurt you, I promise.
Why isn't he picking up for What? Is he dead yet? There you are.
Man up.
We're under attack.
No.
He's not dead yet.
I was just ambushed by some of your inbred cousins.
Any idea why travelers who hate Silas would want to stop me from killing him? They probably want his blood.
For what? Silas drank the cure from Katherine.
Now his blood is the cure.
But they're not immortal, so who do they want it for? Think about it, Damon.
The travelers aren't fans of immortality, and I had to bind the other side to something, something that would last forever, something that Silas couldn't destroy.
What, his favorite childhood sled? Something a little closer to his heart.
immortal, indestructible.
You're a quick boy, Damon.
Figure it out.
Unh! Elena, run! Aah! No way.
What? Not possible.
What? Tessa may be insane, but she's a bona fide genius.
immortal, indestructible.
The anchor isn't a thing.
It's a person.
Amara.
She never killed Amara.
You're still alive.
Amara It's me.
You're ok.
Go away, go away.
Go away.
Leave me alone.
No, no, no.
It's ok.
Who are you talking to, huh? It's me, it's me.
Silas.
It's me.
Silas, how are you here? After all this time How are you here? I thought you were dead.
Tessa said she killed you.
She held your heart in her hands.
She lied.
She couldn't kill me.
There was only one cure.
She wanted it for you.
I took it.
I'm sorry.
I wanted to be with you.
I wanted to be at peace with you.
The cure runs in your veins.
I was ready to die for you.
I love you, Silas.
I'm so sorry.
I have to be cured.
I can't live another day.
Elena Gilbert, what brings you by? How'd you get this? Mystery.
I listened to about half before I nearly blew my brains out from boredom except for the part about your subject's blood being abnormal.
That part was mildly interesting.
Well, thanks for returning it.
Now that subject, is that the Augustine vampire? I think you should go.
Heh.
And do what, sprinkle all of your dirty little secrets across campus, like Augustine and all the vampire experiments that you've been doing? Come on, Dr.
Wes.
Aren't you supposed to be some sort of genius? I'm sure we can come up with some creative solution for our little predicament.
I have to say if I wasn't such a genius, I might actually think you were blackmailing me, Elena.
Actually, my name's Katherine.
Elena's my doppelganger, and while I let you chew on that I'll admit there is something that I can't solve on my own.
Is that a tooth? It's my tooth.
I think I'm dying, and I need you to save my life.
Stop talking.
It's not up to you.
Leave me alone! Leave me alone! Please leave me alone.
Leave me alone.
Are you real? Are you? Well, uh, have a good night.
Yeah.
It's weird.
Even with no memory, you're still you.
Well, Tessa was gonna kill you, and you don't seem like you deserve that, so I was just going on instinct, that's all.
Exactly.
That's what I'm saying.
Your instincts were always to protect me, so thank you for For just being you.
Well, have a good night.
Stefan Salvatore sleeps in his own bed tonight.
Does that mean he stopped hating us, or did the power of the fated doppelganger universe push him into the car with you? Well, he, uh, saved my life, so I'll take that as not hate.
Victory in a day otherwise marred by failure.
Tch.
We couldn't get Bonnie back.
I get a pass.
Did I say anything? Tell her it's for the best, Jer.
No.
No, I won't because it's not.
What? Bonnie's here.
She wants us not to worry.
We're gonna keep trying, Bonnie, ok? It's not over.
We've dealt with much worse.
Well, Silas is M.
I.
A.
and out and about, which is pretty bad, and Amara's been cured, which is even worse because now she's easy to kill, so the fate of the other side, where Bonnie currently resides, rests on a living, breathing human being that we now need to protect.
We need to protect? Elena, meet crazy pants.
Crazy pants, meet Elena.
Aah! What are you doing here? Do you have any idea what it's like watching history repeat itself? You're hurt.
I can heal you.
No, no.
I want this wound.
It's a reminder of what you really are.
See, memories are important.
I made a mistake when I found you.
I eased your pain.
You used to have a lot of pain.
Remember? Ugh! You killed your own father And then forced your brother to become a vampire.
And now I can't fight it.
And that was just the start of your reign of terror.
You hated yourself for a century, but then you found her.
I'm Elena.
I'm Stefan.
Didn't last very long, did it? Stop it.
Stop it, please.
But the ending's the best part because you actually felt real pain, physical pain, torture.
Remember? Hello, my shadow self.
You were trapped in a safe and tossed in a quarry.
Water flooded in.
You tried to scream, you tried to escape, but all you could do was drown over and over and over again.
The only thing keeping you sane was that one day one of the two people you loved Would come rescue you, but they didn't.
I did.
Always remember that.
