Stefan’s new doppelgänger – Tom Avery – is a paramedic. Sloan is working Stefan’s brain really hard to find out exactly where he is – Atlanta Metropolitan Hospital.
Elena wakes up after spending a night with Damon, who wants to more mistakes, but Elena leaves in a hurry.
Damon is at the bar drinking with Matt and Tyler there when they see Jeremy with Liv. Elena is at Jeremy’s Parent-Teacher Conference where she calls Bonnie, who wonders where Jeremy is and Elena realises she doesn’t know either. At the conference, it turns out that Damon is Jeremy’s personal contact, and not Elena.
Sloan calls Enzo to tell him about Tom, and Caroline warns her to stop frying Stefan’s brain. Enzo and Caroline are at the hospital trying to find Tom, while Enzo flirts with Caroline. A fellow doctor informs them that they haven’t seen Tom Avery for four months and no one knows where he is.
Stefan wakes up, Sloan tells him that they will meet Marcos. Caroline calls Sloan to tell her that the info was bad, so Sloan goes back into Stefan’s mind. They discover that a girl named Hazel had taken Tom Avery.
Damon tells Elena about Jeremy and seeing him with Liv, Elena doesn’t believe that he will cheat on Bonnie.
Caroline and Enzo finds the address to find Hazel in a trance, and they can’t go in, so Enzo kills her with a broken doorknob. Hazel appears before Bonnie, while she was in the company of Luke. Hazel tells Bonnie to inform Luke that she couldn’t keep the last doppelganger safe and she failed.
Meanwhile, Liv tells Jeremy that he can’t be mind controlled by Travellers and he’s the only person she can trust. Jeremy though that the Travellers were witches, but Liv says they’re more like witches’ ugly stepsisters. Travellers have a grudge against anyone who gets their magic from nature, and now they’re on the move. Next stop is Mystic Falls. Luke texts Liv about Hazel and its time for plan B, so Liv leaves not before sending Tyler flying backwards.
Caroline chastises Enzo about killing Hazel, but they soon find Tom in the basement. Caroline snaps Enzo’s neck and leaves with Tom.
Jeremy calls Bonnie and tells her that he thinks Elena is in trouble and that Elena is important to the Travellers.
Elena daydreams about having sex with Damon while in one of the teachers presentations. She goes to the garage where Liv knocks her against the wall and grabs a wooden stake. Liv starts apologising to Elena about protecting her, but she’s too dangerous now, just as Damon turns up, who starts to torture Liv for information where she explains that Elena is the last female doppelganger and once the other male doppelganger is dead the Travellers will come after her. Jeremy walks in and tells Damon if he wants to kills Liv he would have to kill Jeremy as well.
Jeremy wants Liv and Luke to protect Elena and in turn he will help figure out what the Travellers are doing, as long as Matt and Tyler help as well.
Meanwhile, Caroline heads to the parking lot with Tom after she compelled him to leave when Enzo shows up and snaps Tom’s neck.
Jeremy tells Elena that he has decided to stay at Matt and Tyler’s for a while. Caroline shows up at the Travellers to see Stefan again, and tells him she failed for Enzo killed Tom, not her. There is some tension between them as they cuddle up with Caroline’s feelings extremely obvious on her face.
Elena packs her things to move back to campus, Damon tries to stop her, instead after much deliberation he kisses her before telling her to travel safe, and walks away.
Caroline and Stefan wake up to the sound of creepy Traveller chanting, they see the Travellers drinking Elena and Stefan’s blood (vomit a little, it’s allowed) Sloan, however, doesn’t drink, but lights one of them on fire, and they all catch on fire. Suddenly all the Travellers appear before Bonnie as they’re chanting and dying, going through her one after the other. Bonnie passes out from the strain of all the ghosts, and her shadow removes itself from her and turns into a man who walks away – Marcos.
