  • Trivia

    • In the previous episode, the sign on the outside of the Gilbert's lake house is located to the right of the front door and is visible as Stefan is waiting for Elena to invite him inside. In this episode, when Elena falls out of the house after stabbing herself, the sign is on the left side of the door.

    • It is revealed in this episode that at the time Lexi and Stefan first met, Lexi was going by the name Alexia Branson.

  • Quotes

    • Lexi: (in flashback) You know the hate you're feeling, towards Stefan, towards everyone? You think you have it under control, but you don't. It will get the best of you.
      Damon: (referring to Stefan) Help him. He needs it.
      Lexi: I'll help him.

    • Katherine: (after Damon walks in on her in the shower) Hello Damon. Hey, do you have a robe?
      Damon: (confused) How did you get out?
      Katherine: I knew that if I begged you not to kill Elijah, that's exactly what you'd do. Little known fact: Originals can compel vampires, but as soon as they die, compulsion wears off.

    • Stefan: Wow, Damon, tellin' me you're actually gonna be careful for once?
      Damon: Yes, Stefan, I've become you. How tragic for both of us. Gotta run. I've a murder to plan. Busy day.

    • Alaric: You said there wasn't going to be any violence.
      Damon: Says the guy who did all the killing.

    • Damon: So let me guess--in addition to the moonstone, the doppelganger, the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe, you need to find this witch burial ground.
      Elijah: Because I feel that we've grown so close, Damon, I'll tell you "yes."

    • Stefan: Elena, you've agreed to sacrifice yourself to Klaus. To say that we have a difference of opinion is the understatement of the century.
      Elena: You would know.
