It’s the last few weeks of school and Caroline and Elena are talking school stuff. Elena says she doesn’t want to be here and senses something is wrong. Turns out it’s Damon playing mind tricks on her. He tells her if he can make her nostalgic, she can get her humanity back. He’s mind-melding her trying to get her to cooperate, but she tells him to go to hell so he locks her back in the cell. Damon tells her that he and Damon will leave her locked up as long as they need to until she throws the switch since they have nothing but time.

Caroline comes by and insists on seeing Elena. They tell her that they are staging a drastic intervention and that she can’t see her. They are trying to trigger any emotion they can to break through. Caroline begs them to let her take a crack at it and Stefan relents. Caroline has a bottle of blood – she knows they’ve been starving her. Elena gratefully gulps the goo as Caroline tells her she doesn’t agree with what the brothers are doing.

Caroline tells her she won’t give up on her. Elena tells her that she’s annoying and clingy and that’s why guys always dump her. She tells her that Tyler left town because she’s too high maintenance. Caroline mentions graduation and Elena tells her she’s going to look pathetic pretending to be human and her mother is counting the moments until her freak daughter leaves town. Elena tells her it’s too bad Stefan stopped her before she got to kill her.

Elena lunges to attack, but she’s weak and Caroline snaps her neck. She tells Stefan to do whatever they need to do to try and fix her. She walks out.

Rebekah is doing shots at the Mystic Grill when Matt comes in. She tells him she’s celebrating her brother ditching her for New Orleans. She tells him the cure is lost to Silas but she knew he was going to try and steal it from her. She invites Matt to stay but he tells her he’s got to meet Caroline. Rebekah says the brothers need to leave her as-is and that she likes Elena now.
Matt tells her that he’s broke and stuck in Mystic Falls, but she should take her freedom and get the hell out of town. He leaves – Rebekah looks miffed.

Caroline calls Bonnie for help with Elena. Bonnie puts her off and tells her that she’s fine but isn’t ready to forgive Elena for trying to kill her. She hangs up and Katherine shows up to meet her. Bonnie has an offer for Katherine…

The boys tie Elena to a chair without her sunscreen ring and open the drapes a little. She looks to her hand and sees it’s gone. Damon tells her that only good girls get nice rings. Stefan says to tell him when he’s ready. She asks if she should be scared and Stefan says she should be. Elena tells them that she’ll hate them for it if she gets her emotions back. Stefan pulls back the drapes and Elena’s arm starts to deep fry as she screams!

Her arms goes up in flames like a yule log, but then Damon tosses some water on it. He tells her to show some gratitude or any emotion and it can stop. She tells him she’s going to kill him. Damon tells her that rage is a good place to start. Elena tells Stefan that he probably enjoyed pulling back the curtain since she dumped him. Damon said it’s progress and they should shine some more light on the subject.

Stefan tells her that the way she’s acting the only way they can get her to flip her switch is to make the alternative too painful. Stefan flips back the drapes and Elena gets a face full of sun and starts to blister and scream.

Outside Caroline is trying hard not to hear the screams and chatting with Matt. Rebekah shows up with takeout for Matt and to help him get caught up for finals. Caroline is upset that he didn’t tell her. He admits he’s in hot water on every subject. Rebekah says they’ll both help and it will be all hands on deck. Caroline gets excited and leaves to get flashcards and study stuff.

Outside at the car, she gets twitchy and senses someone lurking – it’s Klaus!!

Bonnie wants Silas’ tombstone from Katherine. She admits she told her that she told Silas she would help him take the cure and then kill himself. Katherine wants to know more but Bonnie won’t tell her because Silas is psychic and can root around in brains. Bonnie wants her help stopping Silas and says she’ll make it worth her while.

Elena is screaming and screaming. Damon tells her that having no emotions sucks and she tells him what really sucked was being sired to him and watching him be so scared that it wasn’t real – and she assures them that it wasn’t. She tells him that maybe she and Stefan will give it another guy. She breaks through her ropes and goes for the open window and goes up in flames! They use a fire extinguisher and she collapses to the floor. She tells them they just proved they won’t really hurt her because they love her so she has nothing to be afraid of. Uh-oh – I think she’s got their number!

Damon is ranting to Stefan about why Elena won’t turn the switch. Stefan says she’s got nothing to come back for – she’s got no family and no friends left. Damon says they need someone who won’t be scared to hurt her. They decide Katherine is the perfect person to torment their beloved Elena!

Klaus confesses that he can’t stop thinking about Caroline and wants her in his life. He invites her to come to New Orleans with him. Then he repeats a phrase that Elena just used. She realizes it’s Silas wearing Klaus’ face. He tells her to convince Bonnie to come out of hiding or “this” is only the beginning and stabs her.

Matt is using a translator app and Rebekah tells him that’s cheating. He’s stressed because he doesn’t want to fail and get left behind when all his friends leave for college. She tells him he needs new friends and tells him she could compel him good grades and a scholarship. She tells him he helped her a lot when he convinced her to save April. She tells him that anyone who leaves him behind is a fool.

Katherine prances in and Matt is outraged that they’re going to let her go to work on Elena. He stomps out and calls Caroline who comes to when her phone buzzes. Caroline runs into Matt and she panics and tells him that Silas is there. But that’s Silas too! Then Klaus is there and throws her down the stairs and threatens her again. He tells her he will kill the person she loves most. She panics and calls her mom as she drives away while he continues to torment her.

Katherine comes in and goes right to work on Elena. She tells her she promised she wouldn’t kill her, but she can still rip her throat out. She wants to know what Elena told Elijah that got him to dump her. K says she’s going to feed her her own eyeballs. Elena tells her she’s damaged goods and Elijah didn’t need any help to dump her. K chokes her out and tells her that at least she knows who she is.
K tells Elena she wouldn’t survive a week as a real vampire without everyone coddling her. She tells her she’s survived all these years with her humanity and she’s just dealt with life. She basically calls her a pu**y bitch and dares her to try… She locks Elena back in the cell and marches off smirking!

Katherine pours herself a drink and says tormenting her doppleganger worked up her thirst. K tells Damon that Elena is going to go straight back to Stefan if she flips her switch. Stefan comes in in a panic because Elena is gone. Whoops! K forgot to lock the door.
Caroline comes home in a panic and then freaks because she can’t tell if it’s really her mom or not. Seems like it is.
Elena is stumbling around in the woods and Matt finds her. She goes blood crazy on him and he pleads with her. He reminds her they are really good friends and have been all their lives. He tells her he’s loved her forever. She tells him deep down that probably means something but right now she’s hungry. She goes for the jugular!

Bonnie shows up at Caroline’s and tells her that her mom is actually Silas. He threatens Bonnie and tells her that he’ll hurt her friends. She promises him she’ll do the ritual and he tells her the deal is binding. Caroline is trying to revive her mom with her blood.

Elena drank from Matt, but didn’t kill him. She kicks him trying to revive him because she’s still hungry. Stefan stops her. Damon tells her that if she doesn’t flip her switch right then, he’s going to kill Matt in front of her. She says he’s bluffing and he snaps his neck and tells her “one less busboy in the world.”

Matt lies in a crumpled heap as Elena starts to cry. They show her that he was wearing the death immunity ring. She breaks down in tears and caresses his face when she realizes he’ll come back from it. Tears are running down his face. Damon tells her that she’s feeling joy because her friend isn’t dead. Looks like their scheme flipped her humanity back on!

Elena sobs and she’s horrified as all the things come rushing back to her that she’s done – the waitress that she killed, trying to kill Bonnie and Caroline. She’s freaking and Stefan tells her to find something to focus on – the thing inside her that makes her want to live. He tells her to let it in. She begins to calm down and he tells her to breathe it in. She screams and cries and pulls her hair. Then she seems to get her center.

Damon asks if she’s okay. She tells him no but that she’s going to be. She walks away.

Caroline is struggling to revive her mother. She has an adrenaline shot she gives her, but she’s not coming back. She begs her mom to come back – to wake up and see her graduate. She promises she’ll take her away from Mystic Falls and find her a nice man. She sobs and sobs. Her mom comes to, coughing and struggling for air. Caroline laughs in joy and hugs her.

Matt wakes up gasping with a sore neck. Rebekah is there watching him. She tells him she’s never seen the ring in action before and asks him if it hurts. He tells her that having his neck snapped and coming back from the dead both hurt. He wants to know if Elena is back and Rebekah tells him it works. He said he owed it to Elena for saving him and Rebekah admits that she knows her part in it – that he wouldn’t have been in that position if it hadn’t been for her trying to hurt Elena. She promises to help him get into college the honest way to help pay him back.

Katherine finds Bonnie and tells her that she thinks Bonnie can drop the veil without the full moon. K asks again what’s in it for her and she tells her that she’ll talk to her ancient witchy great-great-great…grandma and ask her for the spell that made Silas truly immortal and unkillable and will do it for K. Immediately K agrees.

Damon and Stefan are counseling Elena and caution her to take a little time to recover. She tells them she’s got things to do. She tells them there’s one person that did all this and ruined their lives. She wants to go after Katherine! She tells them that hating Katherine is the thing she chose to focus on. They tell her that K isn’t worth her time. She vows to kill her to get payback for all the crap that’s gone down over the years – making them vamps, making Caroline a vamp, killing her brother, bringing Klaus to town, yada, yada, yada! Doppleganger girl fight!!!

The End!
