In order to speed up the slayer tattoos which contain the key to the cure, Stefan needs Jeremy to kill, hence even supplies a caught murderer. While more hybrids suffer the sire ban-breaking agony like he did, Tyler grudgingly lets lover Hayley drag him along to the annual miss pageant, ignoring she's in league with Atticus, whom Damon openly suspects of foul play but can'touch as only he may revive Bonie's crucial witchcraft. Jeremy senses that he loses control over his slayer killer instinct, maybe even towards Elena. Matt takes his place as April's pageant cavalier. Klaus and ultimately Caroline suspects Damon of siring Elena, who moves in and thus effectively evicts Stefano.
