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.

Tell me that you haven't been making him kill vampires, Stefan.
We need the map to get the cure.
If getting my humanity back means stripping Jeremy of his, then I don't want the cure!
He's the only way to fix all of this.
You mean me. The only way to fix me. You don't have to love me like this. This is who I am now. The old Elena died when she went off that bridge. Let her go.
