In this episode, Stefan can't tell Elena he's a vamp and dodges her calls because that's what people in a healthy relationship do, Damon is a little rapscallion at the Founder's Party, some people are secretly Vamp Cops (but not cops that are vampires, thank god!), and Stefan spikes a drink, but not the one that you'd expect.
