Hungry Like The Wolf
In a hurry? Read the recaplet for a nutshell description!

Mossy Manse: Hoping to unravel the Lockwood mystery, Damon, Stefan and Elena talk to Alaric about Isobel's research on area folklore and whatnot. The first idea Alaric offers is lycanthropes a.k.a. werewolves. Damon -- the vampire -- says there's no way there's any such thing as werewolves. "Way too Lon Chaney. [...] I've been on this planet 160 some-odd years and have never come across one. If werewolves exist, where the hell are they?" We cut to Tyler Lockwood stalking his supernatural mystery uncle, Mason "Brick House" Lockwood, on a run through the woods. Brick House descends a brick staircase that we'll later learn is part of the ruins of the original Lockwood Estate. Back at Mossy Manse, Alaric tells the gang he can get them access toIsobel's research at Duke, and there's a bunch of stupid exposition about how and why her office remains untouched that would have been better left unsaid, so I'm unsaying it. Let's get back to Damon, who, unfortunately, is still trying to make the "Ric" nickname happen for Alaric. I'll unsay that as well. Damon's point is: "If this wolfman thing is true, I've seen enough movies to know it's not good. It means Mason Lockwood is a real-life Lon Chaney and that little Tyler punk may just very well be Lon Chaney Jr., which means Bela Lugosi -- meaning me -- is totally screwed." Heh. Meanwhile, Brick House ascends the mysterious staircase and resumes his forest run. Once he's out of sight, Tyler investigates to find an old cellar that looks more like a dungeon with cells, decorated with chains, collars and some interesting looking claw marks scratched into the wall.

Theme Song!

Fortress Forbes: Matt shows up looking for Caroline, but she can't come to the door or the phone right now on account of the fact that she's a vampire and will burst into flames. Sorry, Pudding Pop. Please leave your message at the beep.

Gilbert Gables: Stefan and Elena exposit for us as they discuss whether or not Elena can stand a road trip with Damon. Since she wants to learn more about her birth mother and their connection to Katherine, as well as the Lockwood mystery, she really has no choice, but figures she'll be fine. Alaric will be there, and he's not inclined to play Tommy Chong to Damon's deranged Cheech Marin. Speaking of Alaric, he's downstairs talking to Jenna who is grateful that Alaric is helping her niece learn more about Isobel. Alaric is awkward as he tries to explain to Jenna why he's been hot and cold with her. She tells him to do what he needs to do to put his "late" wife's affairs in order. She'll skip the half-apologies and vague promises. Note: people on the boards have been wondering why Jenna didn't give Elena crap about going somewhere with Damon. I figure she didn't see Damon or realize he was going along for the ride. It's not like he came in the house. Anyhow, outside, Damon tries to make nice with Elena as they get in Alaric's car, but she'll have none of it. Instead, she purposefully turns towards his brother and lays a big smoochy kiss on him. When she pulls away, her smile is so coquettish, I expect Stefan to object, but he too seems to enjoy rubbing their love in Damon's face, and good for him. I don't care how much Katherine addled his mind. He tried to kill her brother, y'all.
