Downstairs, he and Damon argue about what to do next: Stefan wants to do everything they can to find a way out of Elena's transition, while Damon wants her to accept the inevitable, feed on human blood and not risk dying permanently.
It is there that Stefan confesses his regrets about Elena not feeding in order to complete her transition. In a heartfelt moment, Stefan tells Elena that he loves her. Elena, who continues to weaken without blood, confesses that the reason she was on the bridge was because she was coming back for Stefan, and that no matter what happens, it's the best choice she has ever made.
Desperate to save Elena, Stefan quietly plots with Rebekah. With Rebekah's help, Stefan brutally kills a guard by cracking his head open against the bars. Stefan alerts Elena to the growing pool of blood on the ground. Elena gathers what little strength she has left and manages to dip a finger in the blood and taste it, completing the transition. After Stefan, Elena and Rebekah escape and are let free, Stefan then uses his blood to heal Matt after Damon had bitten him.
Matt then tells Stefan that he wishes that he would stop saving him, that Stefan should have let him drown and saved Elena. Stefan tells Matt that the only reason he saved Matt first was because Elena insisted upon it, that Elena sacrificed her own life to save Matt and instead of bemoaning what has happened, maybe Matt should try to live up to the sacrifice Elena made for him and earn the life he has because of it.
Later, Stefan sits with Elena on the rooftop of the Salvatore mansion. They make small talk about what will happen next with the Council. Stefan tells Elena that he wishes that he could promise that everything would be okay, that he could save her from craving blood and a heightened sense of pain, but unfortunately, being a vampire will be all those things. Elena then tells Stefan that even though there will be struggles, the important thing is that she will get to live and be there for everyone she loves, including him.
Stefan then gives Elena a daylight ring that Bonnie made. He puts the ring on her finger and tells her that they will take it one day at a time. They share a romantic moment as they kiss and watch the sunrise together.
In MemorialStefan wakes up in the woods with Elena, where they spent the night in preparation for an early hunt. The scene is inter cut with a scene from the night before, when Stefan argued with Damon about the best way for Elena to feed.
Stefan tells Damon that he wants Elena to try the animal blood diet so that maybe she can avoid hurting or killing anyone, something that Stefan feels would be especially hard for Elena. Even after Damon voices his opinion to Elena herself, Stefan and Elena leave for their camping trip as planned.
Stefan helps Elena take down and feed on her first deer. While Stefan instructs Elena on using vampire speed, she is distracted by Stefan's touch. She describes the sensation, that it feels like he is touching every single nerve on her body. Stefan continues the sensual description, explaining that everything is heightened, including emotions, sight, smell, sound, taste and touch.
Elena, overwhelmed by desire, begins to passionately make out with Stefan against a tree. Soon, however, Elena begins to feel sick, pushes Stefan away, runs away with vampire speed and vomits up the animal blood.
Later, in Stefan's bedroom, Elena finishes leaving a message for Caroline to ask for help adjusting as Stefan walks into the room with two glasses and a bottle of champagne.
He wants to celebrate her first feed, but Elena is less enthusiastic, reminding him that it kind of made her sick. Stefan explains that it took him a while to get used to animal blood, but it gets easier over time. Elena observes that Stefan is awfully cheery, and he responds that he's just happy she is here. Elena gives into Stefan's high spirits and pops open the bottle, laughing gleefully as it overflows. Stefan and Elena kiss, but are interrupted by a phone call from Damon.
Later, Stefan helps remove peculiar wooden bullets from Tyler's chest. Stefan explains to Tyler and Caroline that the bullets were specially carved, and that if he were a normal vampire instead of a hybrid, he would be dead. Tyler tells Stefan that the hunter who shot him was clearly looking for vampires, and that his gloves were soaked in vervain. Stefan scrutinizes the special bullets, intrigued by the etchings on them.
When Stefan touches one of the bullets, it burns him, and Caroline speculates that the bullets might have been spelled by a witch.
Stefan visits Bonnie to ask her about the bullets. When Bonnie answers the door, Stefan sees how despondent she looks and is immediately concerned. He asks her to invite him in, and after she does he embraces her, comforting her as she cries. After relocating to the living room, Bonnie explains that watching the spirits torture her Grams was like she was dying all over again. Stefan tries to assuage her fears, suggesting that the witches might just be messing with Bonnie's head to teach her a lesson.
Bonnie tells Stefan that she has been unable to perform magic without reliving the horror of watching her Grams be tortured.
Bonnie apologizes for the state she's in and for avoiding everyone, and asks what he needs help with. Stefan tries to back out of it, but Bonnie insists that he tell her what's wrong. Stefan then shows Bonnie the special bullets that he took out of Tyler and tells her that the bullets burn to the touch.
He suggests that the bullets might just be steeped in vervain, but asks Bonnie if she has ever seen the writing on the bullets before. She says that she hasn't, and that it is not magical writing. Stefan then tells Bonnie that he thinks they have a new vampire hunter in town. When Stefan arrives at the church for the memorial service, he sees Elena walking away from Damon, who is putting a blood bag into a satchel. Stefan confronts him about it and Damon explains that he brought the blood bag for Elena, and they argue again about what is best for Elena.
Stefan insists that if Elena hurts someone, she will be desperate to turn the guilt off, maybe even enough to shut off her humanity. Damon suggests that what Stefan is really afraid of is that Elena will become like Stefan's ripper alter-ego or, worse, that she will be like Damon. Damon insists that losing control and killing people is inevitable for a vampire, and the sooner Elena accepts that, the better.
Stefan remains adamant until Damon reveals that Elena hasn't been able to keep any blood down, including animal blood, human blood from a blood bag and Damon's blood. Stefan, already surprised that Elena had kept her difficulties from him, is especially shocked that Elena drank from Damon. Eventually Stefan walks into the church and, after briefly talking to Tyler and Caroline, finds a seat as Carol begins the service for Pastor Young and the council. Elena volunteers to say a few words in Pastor Young's memory as Damon enters the church.
Damon sits down beside Stefan and they watch Elena as she begins her speech. Damon remarks that Elena is not looking so good, and they banter quietly about jealousy and keeping secrets. As Elena is giving her speech, she and the other vampires smell blood dripping from the ceiling.
Damon intuits that it's a trap and very quietly warns everyone not to move. Elena almost loses control before Stefan comes up to the podium and leads her back to her seat. Back in their seats, Elena is barely holding it together, and Stefan and Damon argue under their breath about what to do.
Finally, Matt suggests that Elena feed from him. Stefan agrees to it and lets Matt take Elena. Matt pretends to console Elena while she feeds from his neck. She even casually says Elena has been off since her parents died and just needs to get her mojo back. Caroline's attitude isn't as sweet as she wants to appear. There are times when Caroline just needs a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen.
She goes to Elena, but more often than not, Elena is distracted and her mind is elsewhere. She tends to ignore her friend's drama, thinking Caroline's problems trivial. That may be the case sometimes, but that doesn't mean Elena should ignore her friend. It's especially rude as Caroline is always willing to listen to Elena vent about her problems. But Caroline is gracious and excuses Elena's absentmindedness most of the time.
When Elena and Stefan start showing an interest in each other, Caroline pushes Elena to dish about their first night together. Elena responds that they only talked, which leaves Caroline frustrated. Caroline pushes back, telling Elena, "Just jump his bones already!
Ok, it's easy. Boy likes girl, girl likes boy, sex! There's nothing wrong with Caroline's confidence and how she makes her own choices for her body. But the pressure she puts on Elena to embrace the same lifestyle is not something a good friend does. Caroline rightfully called out Elena on her ability to turn everything into a conversation about herself. As Caroline prepared to turn off her humanity to deal with the grief of losing her mom, Elena turned the conversation to the time she turned off her humanity after losing Jeremy.
The moment showed not only how self-centered Elena could be, but also how hypocritical she was. Caroline lamented how all the other vampires got to escape their grief and that she should be allowed the same.
Elena should've taken a different approach. Caroline set her eyes on Stefan in the beginning, but the younger Salvatore went for Elena. The rejection made Caroline resent Elena, as she always felt like everyone chose Elena over her. Bonnie commented that it wasn't a competition and Caroline responded that yes, it was. I'm your Bonnie backup. That much jealousy and resentment isn't a great foundation for friendship. With her humanity turned off and running rampant, Elena threatened to kill Sheriff Forbes if Caroline got in her way.
To make her point, she did cause some minor damage that the Sheriff could heal from. Although it could be argued Elena only did these things because her humanity was off, it can't be denied that the pettiness stemmed from somewhere. Flipping off her humanity switch just showed how many negative emotions Elena held at bay and filtered with it on.
She had a flippant attitude for hurting someone she called her best friend. Elena had a special knack for keeping Caroline on the outside.
