Episode 1: The Return
Picking up where the first season left off, Elena arrives home to
discover the fates of Uncle John and Jeremy. Jeremy has not transitioned
into a vampire because he did not take enough drugs to die. Damon,
Bonnie, and Elena agree that Caroline needs Damon's blood to survive.
Stefan realizes that Katherine has returned and is impersonating Elena.
Tyler is surprised when his uncle, Mason Lockwood, arrives in town to
console him. Katherine and Damon nearly sleep together, but Katherine
tells Damon that she never loved him and that she had always loved
Stefan. Distraught, Damon goes to see Elena, who resists his attempt to
kiss her. Angry that Elena also loves Stefan, Damon snaps Jeremy's neck.
Jeremy survives because he is wearing John's ring, which protects him
from death by supernatural forces. Katherine goes to the hospital and
uses a pillow to smother Caroline. Before Caroline dies, Katherine gives
her a message for the Salvatore brothers - "Game on."
Episode 2: Brave New WorldCaroline, a newly turned vampire, awakens in the hospital craving blood.

using his abilities, proving that he is a werewolf. Caroline confronts
Damon about his abusive treatment, and he realizes that she is a
vampire. He alerts Elena and Stefan as a ravenous Caroline drains

journey. Tyler retrieves the moonstone Mason has been seeking. Matt
notices Caroline's erratic behavior, but admits that he loves her.
Episode 3: Bad Moon RisingElena, Damon, and Alaric head to Isobel's old office at Duke University,
where they locate information on werewolves and their relationship to
vampires. It is revealed that vampires and werewolves used to roam
freely until a shaman placed a curse to limit their powers: the
werewolves were from then on servants to the moon and vampires became
the slaves of the sun. Stefan teaches Caroline how to control herself
and hunt animals, and has Bonnie make Caroline a daylight ring. In
werewolf form, Mason encounters Stefan and Caroline. Tyler saves them by
shouting at the werewolf; he later finds Mason in the woods and

Katerina Petrova- to aid in her research. Alaric reaffirms his romantic
interest in Jenna, and Caroline find Katherine in her bedroom.

relationship with her. After Caroline tries to break up Elena and
Stefan, Elena realizes that Caroline is working for Katherine. Elena and
Katherine finally meet, but Katherine ignores Elena's questions. Damon
stabs Mason with a silver knife, which backfires when Mason says that
silver hurting werewolves is only a myth and they are now enemies.
Katherine remembers what happened in 1864, after Stefan and Damon were
shot in an attempt to save her. She had kissed Stefan, declaring her
love and saying they would be together again one day. Stefan and Elena
stage a fake break-up to prevent Katherine from hurting anybody.
Episode 5: Kill or be KilledAt the Mystic Falls picnic, Mason Lockwood tells Liz, the sheriff, that
Stefan and Damon are vampires. Stefan and Damon are shot by Liz and her
fellow police officers. Caroline and Elena reach the Salvatores before
Liz can kill them, but Caroline's identity as a vampire is exposed to
her mother. Liz rejects Caroline as her daughter, and Stefan drinks
Elena's blood for strength. Caroline confesses to Elena that Katherine
threatened to kill Matt if Caroline didn't spy on Elena and Stefan for
her; Elena forgives Caroline. Tyler gives up the moonstone to Mason. It
is revealed that Mason is working for Katherine, who wants the
moonstone, and that they are lovers.
Episode 6: Plan BThough Liz accepts Caroline, Caroline compels her mother to forget that
she is a vampire. Bonnie incapacitates Mason by giving him an aneurysm;
he is then questioned by Damon. Damon tortures Mason, who believes that
Katherine loves him and refuses to talk. Damon tells Mason that
Katherine is using him and he eventually kills Mason. Bonnie has a
vision of the moonstone's location in a well. Stefan discovers the well
is full of vervain, which burns him. Caroline and Bonnie help Elena
rescue Stefan and retrieve the moonstone. Jenna is compelled by
Katherine to stab herself. Elena, fearful of what else Katherine might
do, decides to break up with Stefan for good. Needing another werewolf,

Katherine at the Lockwoods' masquerade ball. Katherine is visited by a
witch named Lucy, who is to help her retrieve the moonstone. Matt -

breaks her neck. Tyler's eyes turn yellow, showing that the curse is
triggered. Stefan and Damon try to kill Katherine, staking her, but stop

incapacitates Katherine, who collapses. Damon traps Katherine in the
underground tomb. As Elena heads home, she is intercepted by a masked
Episode 8: RoseElena is taken to an abandoned house by a vampire named Trevor and meets
another vampire named Rose. When Tyler witnesses Caroline's abilities,
she reveals that she is a vampire. Elena overhears Rose and Trevor
arguing about a vampire named Elijah. Using a spell, Bonnie locates
Elena. Elena tries to get information out of Rose, who tells her Elijah
is one of 'the original' vampires, and that she and Trevor are using
Elena, a Petrova doppelganger and the key to breaking the curse, as a
bargaining position. Elijah arrives, and Rose offers him Elena in
exchange for their pardon. Elijah agrees but kills Trevor. Elena tries
to stall Elijah, saying she knows where the moonstone is, but he compels
her to tell him its location. Stefan and Damon arrive to fight with

to a girl. Her father says that Katherine has shamed their family and
takes the baby away. In the present day, Elena goes to the tomb, where
she offers Katherine blood in exchange for the truth - a doppelgnger
from the Petrova line can be used to break the curse. Elena, as
Katherine's descendant, is the current Petrova doppelgnger. Katherine
reveals that she was kicked out of Bulgaria and fled to England, where
Elijah and Trevor found her. They recognized her as a Petrova
doppelgnger and Elijah tried to kill her, but Trevor helped her escape.
She became a vampire so that she couldn't be used to break the curse.
Katherine came to Mystic Falls to offer Klaus what he needed to lift the
curse: the current doppelgnger, a witch, a werewolf, a vampire, and
the moonstone. She hoped that in exchange, Klaus would spare her life.

of Bonnie's attraction to Luka. Damon and Rose go to get information

transformations. Bonnie plans to lift the spell from the tomb and
incapacitate Katherine so that Stefan can grab the moonstone, but Jeremy
goes ahead with the plan alone and is captured and fed on by Katherine.
Stefan saves Jeremy, but is trapped himself. Three vampires confront
Damon, Rose, and Elena. Elijah kills the three vampires and then
departs. Back home, a trapped Stefan makes Damon promise to protect

gives the moonstone to his father. Jules, a friend of Mason's, arrives
in Mystic Falls looking for him. Damon and Alaric try to trick her into
having a drink mixed with wolfsbane; she reveals that she is a werewolf,
and tells Damon he has been marked. Elijah makes a deal with Elena: she
has to keep herself safe from Klaus (so that Elijah can use her as bait
to kill Klaus) and in return, Elijah will protect her friends and
family and free Stefan from the tomb. Caroline reunites with Tyler,
holding him as he cries about the trauma of the night before. At the

her wolf friends and although Damon and Stefan are outnumbered, they
kill most of the wolves. Tyler releases Caroline from the cage, but

to get staked, Jonas, on Elijah's behalf, incapacitates the remaining
wolves. Tyler tries to apologize to Caroline, but she tells him they are
no longer friends. Tyler tells Jules and Brady that Mason was probably
