We pick up right where we left off: with newly-undaggered Elijah and Klaus. After a scuffle, Klaus tells his brother that their father Mikael is dead and asks Elijah to help him destroy Stefan. Once they do, their family can finally be whole again—especially after they recover the fourth coffin. Elena and Alaric get a surprise morning visitor—Sheriff Forbes, who informs them that murdered Brian the Medical Examiner was killed with a stake that came from Elena’s family’s weapons stash. Worse still, it’s got Elena’s fingerprints and Elena’s fingerprints alone on it. She calls Damon to discuss; he thinks Ric’s new flame Dr. Fell must be behind it, but Elena refuses to believe that Alaric’s love life "is that tragic." If it’s not her, though, it must be connected to Klaus somehow—or maybe Stefan.
