Did You Know?


When the group is hiking up to the cave that holds Silas, they all walk at human speed, with Shane leading them at the front. There is no logical reason for this, considering that everyone in the group except Shane has supernatural powers (vampire speed, Hunter's physical ability, witch powers). They were all in a hurry to find Silas before any rival groups could, and if one of them had carried Shane, the hike would have lasted a matter of minutes. See more »


Elena Gilbert: [as they hike] Is anyone else a little creeped out?
Rebekah Mikaelson: So then leave. Out of everyone, your presence is the least necessary.
Stefan Salvatore: Please don't start.
Rebekah Mikaelson: I'm merely stating the facts. Jeremy has the spell on his body, Bonnie's the witch that unseals the cure. Shane is the human compass. You and I have the tombstone, which does God knows what. And Elena has no point.
Damon Salvatore: What about me?
Rebekah Mikaelson: You have a nice behind.
