Connor wakes up to find himself tied up in his trailer. He asks why Klaus saved him. Klaus tells him that he doesn’t know his own history. That just made him the most well protected vampire hunter in town.
I love the way Elena is developing into her vampy self, but she still holds those emotions that made her human. I think she's feeling closer to Damon because she knows the vampire part of herself is more like him than Stefan.
I've always been a Damon and Elena fan more than a Stefan and Elena fan... I can only keep my fingers crossed that Elena realizes she needs Damon's strength right now as a vampire.
