With Dr. Fell’s help, Damon and Klaus questioned Connor, but the confrontation took a lethal turn. Trying to keep her new life as normal as possible, Elena was determined to continue her senior year at Mystic Falls High with support from Matt and Caroline. Rebekah’s arrival at school made it difficult for Elena to control her anger, but she learned that confronting Rebekah can be extremely dangerous. Later, Rebekah realized how alone she is, and reached out to April.
On tonight’s show Damon goes with Elena and Bonnie to visit Whitmore College, where Professor Shane is taking over the Occult Studies classes formerly taught by Bonnie’s grandmother. At a fraternity costume party, Damon takes advantage of the wild scene to give Elena a lesson in choosing a victim.
