2.11 ~ “By The Light Of The Moon”
Elijah: Forgive the intrusion. I mean your family no harm.
Elena: Why did you kill those vampires when they tried to take me?
Elijah: Because I didn’t want you to be taken. Klaus is the most feared and hated of the originals, but those who fear him are desperate for his approval. Word gets out that the doppelganger exists and there will be a line of vampires eager to take you to him and I can`t have that.
Elena: Isn’t that exactly what you are trying to do?
Elijah: Let’s just say that my goal is not to break the curse.
Elena: So what is your goal?
Elijah: Klaus’s obsessions have made him paranoid. He’s a recluse. He trusts only those in his immediate circle.
Elena: Like you?
Elijah: Not anymore.
** Nothing like the seeds of a little betrayal on these Ides of March, eh? **
