Antagonist: Jules

Goof: When John says that Jenna has no right to keep him from staying in the house she says that as legal guardian she does, but he says because he is Elena's biological father he does. Elena was adopted by Johns brother and Jenna was given custody when he died therefor John is incorrect and Jenna has every right to keep him out of the house and away from Elena.

Trivia: Caroline recovers from a gunshot wound to the head. This is the first time we see that vampires can regenerate brain tissue.
