Alison: Rafe? Rafe? "I'll be back soon. Had to check on something. Love you more than ever." So cute.

[Knock on door]

Alison: Um -- just a second. 3E5D480C.JPG


Alison: Ok, please. Coming.

Alison: Lucy.

Lucy: Hey. Alison, I'm so sorry to bother you.

Alison: No, you're ok. Come on in.

Lucy: Oh, thanks.

Alison: I was going to make some tea. Want some?

Lucy: No, I'm looking for Ian. Have you seen him? Has he been by or called or anything?

Alison: No. I haven't seen him since earlier at the crypt. Why?

Lucy: Well, we were trying to absorb, you now, everything that happened tonight, and he got this really weird look on his face, and he just took off. 3E5D4832.JPG

Alison: He did? That's funny because Rafe had to go run some mysterious errand, too. Look.

Lucy: What do you mean? "I'll be back --"

Alison: What?

Lucy: It's just something has -- I can feel something inside, and it's really strange. And I'm just praying that, you know, maybe my radar's just whacked right now, just all out of whack.

[Knock on door]

Alison: Ok. Maybe that's Ian.

Elizabeth: How can this be? How can this be happening?

Alison: Mother, what -- what --

Elizabeth: It was gone. Everything was gone. It was just like before -- before Stephen. All the symptoms -- I mean, how could Rafe let this happen? Even you said that he was going to be able to fix it, but obviously he didn't because it's back! 3E5D4864.JPG

Alison: Slow down. What are you talking about?

Elizabeth: Lucy, maybe you had something to do with this, huh? Is this your fault?

Lucy: Elizabeth, why are you wearing sunglasses at night?

Elizabeth: Yeah, I should know. Maybe you're to blame here.

Lucy: Give me those.

Alison: Mother --

Lucy: Look at us.

Alison: What is it? Look at -- look at us!

Rafe: No -- no -- Caleb --

jack: Oh, my God. What the hell -- tell me you know where the body is. Tell me you know where Caleb is.

Rafe: It was gone when I got here. 3E5D4882.JPG

Ian: He left this behind.

Jack: Oh, my God, he's not dead.

Rafe: No. Of course he is. We did everything right, by the book. He was dead!

Jack: Tess is missing, too. Caleb must've taken her. He took her someplace.

Ian: He didn't take Tess. Tess took him.

Jack: No. No, that's insane.

Ian: She healed him and she brought him back.

Rafe: No. We don't even know that he's alive!

Ian: Yes, we do.

Caleb: Where are we?

Tess: It's a secret place that no one knows about. Not even Jack. So don't worry, Caleb. You're safe here. 3E5D48BC.JPG

Caleb: You called me Caleb.

Tess: It's who you are. You're Caleb, not Stephen. And I'm Tess, not Livvie. It was Caleb who made me live. Now is my turn to save Caleb.

[Caleb gasps]

Tess: You must be tired. You need to rest, ok?

Caleb: I know you are. Here.

Tess: We'll be better soon.

Caleb: Yeah. I was dead. Everything was darkness. And then you brought me back. I don't understand.

Tess: I've always been able to heal people.

Caleb: Why -- after all the things that I've done, why would you bring me back?

Tess: Because it was the right thing to do. Your life is just as precious as anyone else's. 3E5D491E.JPG

Caleb: There must have been more to it than that.

Tess: I was really upset by what Jack had done -- what they all had done. And when I saw you lying there, I knew -- I knew I had to bring you back.

Caleb: Is it possible that you really do love me?

Lucy: That's what I was feeling. Caleb is alive? That's what I was so afraid of -- he's alive.

Alison: That must be where Rafe rushed off to, and Ian, too. How can this be happening? This was supposed to be over, and we were finally going to be able to be safe again.

Lucy: I know I killed him. I killed him! I don't understand what went wrong! 3E5D49C4.JPG

Elizabeth: You killed him? You killed him? What kind of slayer did you turn out to be? You can't even tell if a vampire is dead or alive?

Alison: Mother --

Elizabeth: What good are you?

Lucy: Shut up, Elizabeth. Just shut up. This isn't just about you, you know. This affects everybody. Everybody's in danger now. There's a million things I have to do and think about. I have to think about this.

Elizabeth: Listen, Lucy, you don't have to live like this. I do! Please, you have got to help me. Anything that you can do to end his life -- please, please, just make him disappear. Help me. 3E5D49E0.JPG

Alison: We're going to be ok. Stop it. Just --

Elizabeth: You don't know what it's like.

Alison: Yes. It's ok. Please, just --

Elizabeth: I feel it so deep inside --

Alison: Listen, we were so close before. We're going to do it again. You just sit here and drink this water because it works, remember?

Elizabeth: I can't.

Alison: You'll be ok.

Elizabeth: No, I don't --

Alison: Mother, drink it! Drink it. Please, just drink it. Just drink it. How is this happening again? Why is this happening?

Lucy: I don't know. I don't know. But I'm going to find out why and I'm going to figure this out, ok? Are you ok with her? Can you be safe with her? 3E5D49FA.JPG

Alison: Yeah, I'll be fine.

Lucy: Are you sure?

Alison: Yeah, I'm fine. Where are you going?

Lucy: All right.

Alison: Where are you going?

Lucy: I am going to find Ian!

Ian: Face it, Jack. Caleb's back.

Jack: Yeah, but it wasn't Tess who brought him back.

Ian: Then who was it? I was a dead man once. She put her hands on me and brought me back to life. You know her powers.

Jack: Look, he took Tess, and I've got to find her. She's my wife. She loves me. And if she's with Caleb, she's in danger.

Ian: If she's with Caleb, she's where she wants to be!

Jack: You know what?

Shut up! 3E5D4A17.JPG

Rafe: Stop! Just stop. This isn't doing anyone any good. All right, now, Jack, you might be right. But guess what? If Caleb has Tess, she's really smart, so she's going to find a way to reach you.

Jack: All right. So maybe she went back home like she always does.

Rafe: That's right, that's right. That's what you do -- you follow her past behavior.

Jack: Ok, ok. Look, I'm going to go check back at home.

Rafe: And we'll keep checking in, all right?

Jack: And we're not finished.

Rafe: What the hell are you doing?

Ian: We both know what happened here. 3E5D4A37.JPG

Rafe: Yeah, and so does he! He's just not ready to face it yet.

Ian: What we need to face is the truth Rafe.

Rafe: Really? What truth is that?

Ian: We can't beat Caleb. This is his nightmare, and we're part of it.

Rafe: No, I don't accept it.

Ian: You don't accept it? You don't have a demon living inside you! I was a man for one minute. Now I'm back to --

Rafe: I am not going to let you give up. You still have your research.

Ian: What research? He's alive, and I'm walking around like a dead man!

Rafe: All right, all right, fine. So, what do you want to do? Huh? You just give me the word when you want to give up. You give up Danny, you give up Lucy, all of it. You just give me the word, and I'll put you out of your misery! All right? I'll even give you a few minutes to say good-bye to everything you love and everyone who loves you. 3E5D4A68.JPG

Ian: No.

Rafe: All right. Now, look, you're right. I don't know what it is you're going through. I don't know what it's like to fight this demon from the inside. But I do know what it's like to lose hope.

Ian: Do you?

Rafe: Yeah, I do. Alison and I -- we had it back for just a second, and now it's gone again. But you know what? We're going to get it back again. All of us are.


Ian: Right.

Tess: Of course I love you, Caleb. Did you think I was lying when I said it before?

Caleb: I guess I found it hard to believe. 3E5D4A95.JPG

Tess: Well, I couldn't have saved you if I didn't.

Caleb: You --you have a power beyond anything I've ever felt.

Tess: What did you feel?

Caleb: I took in my last breath, and I just felt this certain kind of acceptance.

Tess: And you weren't afraid?

Caleb: I just knew this time -- this time it was over and there was nothing to do but embrace the darkness forever.

Tess: I think I felt that moment, too.

Caleb: Except suddenly there was this little sliver of light, like the sun breaking through the clouds. It was you. You were calling me back. I've only heard of unconditional love before. I've never known it. Sure as hell never felt it. And I know what kind of sacrifices you had to make. 3E5D4AE5.JPG

Tess: I had no choice.

Caleb: Jack is going to be very angry with you.

Tess: I don't want to talk about Jack right now. I don't want to think about anything.

Caleb: You ok?

Tess: I'm tired.

Caleb: You should rest. Just let go. Let me be your strength.

Tess: Why are you doing this?

Caleb: Because I want to.

Tess: I know, and that makes me very sad.

Caleb: Me being here with you?

Tess: No, you using my weakness to get to Livvie.

Ian: You know?

Lucy: I know.

Lucy: It's obscene. It's so unfair. I -- I can't think of anything -- no words -- 3E5D4BE6.JPG

Ian: We tried.

Lucy: I -- I am so sorry.

Ian: Well, it's not your fault. You know, you did everything you could, so --

Lucy: But I didn't save you.

Ian: I love you for wanting to.

Lucy: Don't give up. Come on, it's not over. We don't give up. We're going think of something. You, me, Rafe, all -- we'll think of something.

Lucy: I love you.

Ian: I know. That's why I still exist.

Lucy: Are you ok? Can -- can I make you feel better?

Ian: No. I'm not going to use you like that. 3E5D4C27.JPG

Lucy: Use me? I want -- I want to be with you.

Ian: We can't. Not like this.

Alison: You go to sleep. Shh.

Alison: I was so worried about you.

Rafe: So I guess you figured out about Caleb, huh?

Alison: Yeah, yeah, I do. I don't understand, though. How did it happen?

Rafe: Neither do I. The best I can figure is Tess used her healing powers on him.

Alison: What? Tess?

Rafe: I did everything right this time. All the slayer rituals, everything down -- I did everything.

Alison: Oh, my God. Jack must be going out of his mind. 3E5D4C57.JPG

Rafe: When he left, he was pretty much in a state of denial. You know, he didn't want to admit how much Caleb has a hold over Tess.

Alison: Wait, Rafe -- do you think that this whole thing was a lie? I mean, Jack and Tess and her whole kindness thing -- do you think that we were so worried about setting her up to get Caleb -- were we actually the ones being made fools of?

Jack: You're not coming back, are you, Tess? You're with him. You brought Caleb back to life, and now you're together. Guess you were always his, huh? Never really me. Maybe you were never real at all.

Caleb: Is that what you think I'm doing? Using you to try to get to Livvie? 3E5D4C96.JPG

Tess: As you always have.

Caleb: I guess I deserve that.

Tess: Doesn't matter anymore. I don't -- I don't want to fight about it. I'm tired of being torn between you and Jack. I don't want to try.

Caleb: Just tell me -- tell me what would make you happy.

Tess: To have not been used by Jack or you, to not feel hurt anymore. What would make me happy is to not have to feel that. I've made a decision. You win. Caleb, she wins. You can be with Livvie now. I don't want to fight with you anymore. You two can have each other, and I'm just going to rest.

Caleb: But I don't want Livvie. I want you, Tess. I want you.
