Without telling Elena that Stefan is missing, Damon turns to Sheriff Forbes (recurring guest star Marguerite MacIntyre) for help finding his brother. Elena and Caroline try to find out who is covering up a campus murder, and a fellow Whitmore student named Jesse (recurring guest star Kendrick Sampson – Greek) gives Elena some intriguing information about Professor Wes Maxfield (recurring guest star Rick Cosnett – The New Inventors). While Jeremy struggles to return to his old life, he continues to be the only person who can see and talk to Bonnie, but he can't convince her that the time has come to let the others know she sacrificed her own life for his. After learning that Silas is searching for Katherine, Damon asks Matt and Jeremy to keep her out of sight, but the situation quickly spirals out of control. Finally, Nadia (recurring guest star Olga Fonda) uses violence to make a point about her own agenda.
