On the first day of their senior year, Elena, Caroline and Bonnie have a lot to look forward to: hybrid boyfriends, boyfriends that see their dead ex-girlfriends and last but not least, vampire ex-boyfriends that have been transformed into a blood crazed psychopath.
Apparently, when Stefan killed his brother's compelled/real/fake girlfriend last week he didn't quite get the message across that he didn't want to be found.
On the eve of the full moon, Elena makes a deal with an uncertain ally while Tyler discovers that even after watching Mason's videos, pain is just the beginning.
While Stefan and Damon desperately try to put an end to the schemes of Claus and The Originals, Elena doubts whether or not the risk is worth the reward.
After a brief meeting with Katherine, Stefan and Damon hatch a plan in hopes of destroying the curse The Originals want lifted.
