Mystery solved! Definitely Alaric's Apartment!  
I was wondering (and others had pondered it too in their entries about the episode) just where the heck Elena was doing her workout when Damon came upon her and showed her the way to a vampire's heart. Well, mystery solved! :D Someone mentioned that they saw a #8 (on the door across the hall) when Damon opened the door to the room, and I noticed the windows when Elena arose from the bench which made me think of when Katherine was forced to burn herself at Klaus' command while trapped in Alaric's apartment. So I went looking for that scene, and found (a) Ric's apartment is #9 (same style and design as the #8), and (b) more importantly, the exact same painting in the exact same spot in both scenes. So ...

From "The Last Day," Klaus in Alaric's apartment and Elena and Damon during the workout scene from "Smells Like Teen Spirit" --

Definitely the same place.

Cool. Because that was kinda bugging me.

What a relief that's cleared up. :)

Not that I ever had any doubt it was Alaric's apartment. The chairs and the bookcase rather gave it away,

I thought it was some room in the boarding house, which didn't make sense. That Ric still had his apartment, but also was staying at the Gilbert house didn't make sense either, though.

You should start working for shows like "Criminal Minds" or "CSI".....

I am happy that this matter is relieved. But, you're good!! ;)

Thanks for clearing that up, Jenn. I was thinking about it last night but needed to get some sleep, so didn't look into it further. Now I don't have to. :)

Have a good day.

I just figured we saw enough of Ric's apartment that there had to be some way to see if it was that definitively or not, and there was. :)

You are pro at the sleuth work, Jennifer. I've added this info to my DE quotes post and credited you. :)

*delurks* Hi! I've seen you at Bloodstream and enjoyed reading your reviews, but I think this the first time I've commented here.

I'm glad you figured this out! That was bugging me after the episode. Like, do the Gilberts have some random weight room / vampire-slaying facility that we've never seen before?

I recognize you from there too. Hi!

It really was bugging me because it looked more the Boarding House, but Damon told her not to come there, so that left the Gilbert house, but it didn't look like Gilbert house. I didn't really think of Ric's place at first because that Ric still had his apartment, but also was staying at the Gilbert house didn't make sense either, though. But apparently, yup, that's it!

Thank you for clearing that up. I was worried that that was going to bug me every time I watched that scene.

I seriously just kept wondering!
