Elijah warns Damon that if he has any "dishonarable intentions", he will kill him and everyone in the house.

While Elijah is seated at the dinner table, Alaric sneaks up behind him and stabs him with the dagger, killing him. They then drag his body to the basement, but later find that he is gone; Elena had read in the journal that the dagger must not be removed or the Original will come back to life.

Elijah shows up at the lake house telling Elena that the deal is off, and even though he has not been invited in, he's very patient and will wait them out. Elena tells Elijah that if they don't renegotiate, she'll stab herself with a knife, have Stefan give her his blood, and then kill herself like Katherine did, becoming a vampire and of no use to him. Elijah calls her out on a bluff, but Elena stabs herself, meaning she wasn't. Elijah gives his word to Elena and begs her to let him heal her.
