Things Elena (Nina Dobrev) needs before prom: A date. Check. She has two: Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). A dress. Check. She steals Caroline’s (Candice Accola). Her emotions. Uncheck. The brothers Salvatore are working on it, though.
Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) helps out his little blond friend after she worries her humanity-less bestie has ruined the dance. He’s amused that he has to assist her this time.
It’s not all dandelions and cupcakes for Klaus. Elijah (Daniel Gillies) makes a decision that upsets the hybrid, then Klaus gets some troubling intel that sets up next week’s show.
Elijah has an encounter with another sibling. He makes an intriguing offer to Rebekah (Claire Holt), and she accepts. The Original sis actually gets to attend a dance, and there she helps Matt (Zach Roerig) deal with Elena. Suddenly, the quarterback sees a different side to the crazy blond vampire who once tried to kill him.
Meanwhile, Bonnie (Kat Graham) figures out a scary truth.
