Damon finds himself the prisoner of Galen Vaughn, one of the five Hunters, whose only goals is to kill Silas, even if that ruins the cure. Klaus toys with Tyler and Caroline, using his knowledge, including the Bibical dead language Aramaic, to help decipher the tattooed map to the cure on Jeremy's skin with a cryptographic key, and divulges it's only enough for a single vampire. This news shatters the expedition members' shaky alliance. Tyler decides to run, without Caroline, when Klaus promises to hunt him down, albeit with a head-start. Arrived in the cage, the expedition members rush to Silas's tomb, which poses unforeseen vampire and delusional challenges. Atticus is shattered mentally on top of breaking his leg after rewarding his witch accomplice Massak with Silas's magical tombstone.
