Hope made her way to Mystic Falls High, and found herself working with Alaric to take down a troll.
Things took a turn when Alaric tried to save Hope without thinking about it. He admitted that he thought it was muscle memory.
Hope said it would be painful for her to tell him the truth so they were best staying apart.
The pair came together again and bonded. Hope admitted some of the truth and that she needed to get out of town.
Alaric tried to get Hope to go to the school to keep tabs on everyone for him.
Landon and Josie had their first date and found themselves at an impasse.
Landon then bumped into Hope and they got closer, but Landon returned to Josie and they made things right.
Lizzie was taken aback by the arrival of a hot new vampire, and started to wonder who the man was.
When she tried to track him, he returned and told her to stop.
