Pastor Young's posse is killed in an explosion, so sheriff and mayoress are reinstated. Tyler is back in his body and happy with Caroline, who can't help worrying constantly, while he chooses to seize the day. The Salvatore brothers disagree violently how best to help Elena, who has been turned into a vampire: either seeking Stefan's probably naive control attempts or Damon's 'short pain', while she still contemplates death as only way out. Matt provides an urgent compromise during pastor Young's memorial service, which is widely attended, also by his niece April and outsider Connor Jordan, whom Damon correctly mistrusted as he's a seasoned, well-armed slayer.
