In Memory Lane, Katherine begins using Caroline to spy on Elena and Stefan. When Damon convinces Alaric Saltzman to convince Jenna to host a private mini reunion barbecue party with a couple of her old high school friends supposedly so that Alaric can meet some of her old friends including Mason Lockwood, Caroline tries to distract Elena from the fact that her boyfriend won't answer by dropping hints that a vampire/human relationship wouldn't work including telling her that Stefan supposedly said to Caroline that despite how he felt about Elena every second he she was a temptation. He fought the desire for blood every second every day even when she was with him.Elena contemplated what Caroline said as Alaric came to them to tell them dinner was ready.
After Caroline played Pictionary with the others, Elena, after waiting for a few hours for a return call and getting a bad feeling, decides to take matters into her own hands and says she's going to go over there to see what's happening. Caroline after trying to discourage her from going including saying she was being a clingy girlfriend she offers her a lift there which Elena happily agrees too. On the way out, Caroline deliberately drops her keys near the back left tire and twist the air valve damaging it enough to produce a slow leak. On the road, Caroline again drops hints that Elena and Stefan should break up. "Why are you being so snippy? " Elena asks. Caroline blames it on her own personal drama, implying her own break up with Matt, but she presses the issue.
After Elena changed the subject by turning up the car's mp3 player, Caroline's sabotaged tire blows out and they have to stop the car. It's soon night time and Caroline has made a call to the towing company for them to come and get the car, but it is taking exceedingly long and an antsy Elena wants to call Jenna, presumably to pick them up. Caroline stalls further by saying she will call the tow company again and use her "agro voice". Elena offers to walk the rest of the way but Caroline says they can't leave her car. Elena says they will come back for it but Caroline belays her again. Elena concedes that Caroline is still upset over Matt but not to project it on her Stefan.

Soon after she had a frightening face to face confrontation with Katherine, Elena walks into the Mystic Grill with Stefan. Caroline is there and calls Elena over and she apologizes to Elena about how she acted and what she said. But Elena admits that what Caroline was saying earlier was right but it was hard for her to admit it. Caroline is surprised that Elena is not mad and Elena tells her she was just being a good friend. Caroline apologizes again. Elena wordlessly accepts it and goes over to where Stefan was sitting.

In Kill or Be Killed, Caroline and Elena are in The Mystic Falls Historical Society Volunteer Day at the function Caroline described to Elena that Elizabeth is all of a sudden "mother of the year" when she was trying to avoid her the most. Then as they begin to paint on what looked like wood stain and/or preservative on a park ground building pillar and a wood water pump. Caroline noted Elena's apparent boredom and says she is just babbling; but Elena encourages her to go on and she does, Caroline saying she was bitchy to her mother which was "...par for the course with us". "Us" meaning vampires.
Elena seemed preoccupied despite what she said so Caroline asked how things were with her and Stefan and if she heard from him "No, not since the fight" Elena lied referring to the "break up" at the Mystic Grill. She tells Caroline that he has been pushing her away from him because a jealous Katherine might hurt her and she doesn't know how to change her mind. Caroline puts down her brush and goes over to say to her that perhaps that Stefan has a point because Katherine is dangerous. Continuing the lie as her best friend looks at her intently Elena says that she knows that Katherine is dangerous and that Stefan is trying to protect her, but it felt like giving up, that they were stronger than that. To that Caroline just shrugs regretfully.
A few minutes later, still applying wood stain to the facilities Caroline notes the longing looks between Elena and Stefan and comments on it to Elena. Elena puts down her brush and says she is going to go talk to him. Caroline tries to talk her out of it but Elena blows past her heading for Stefan frustrating her. As Elena heads for her alleged ex-boyfriend Damon comes up behind Caroline asking what is Elena's problem. "Don't worry about it" Caroline says.

Minutes later they are both climbing up to higher ground so Caroline can hear her surroundings better, Caroline picks up the various park sounds, "Oh God" Caroline says "What?" says a befuddled Elena who hadn't heard a thing. Caroline says it was Stefan and Damon and she takes off running but at human speed so Elena can keep up. A few minutes later Mason Lockwood comes up behind them wondering what they were doing there.
Ignoring the question Elena ask where is Stefan, Mason, with a hard face, says he did see him or Damon and walks closer to the two. Elena ask where are they. "You don't need me for that. I'll let your friend sniff them out" he says sardonically to Caroline. Caroline looks at Mason with a hard face as well. "Does your mother know what you are?!? Mason ask hostilely. Caroline is taken aback that he knows. "I'm happy to tell her" he says. She makes a move about to go into superspeed to attack him, but Caroline stops in her tracks as Mason threatens to snap Elena's neck. Caroline manages to free Elena, and run immediately to look for Stefan and Damon.

Elena ask what is going on. Caroline tells her Elizabeth is killing them. Elena says "What?" but Caroline restrains her. Caroline is afraid to stop it because her mother will find out about her. Elena, disgusted, ignores her and runs down the stairway leaving a torn Caroline, but just temporarily. She eventually runs down the stairs after Elena who had just hit a sheriff deputy with a old plank trying to stop the killing. The deputy who was hit holds her at gun point, but Caroline, using her superspeed, slams shut a cellar door. Elizabeth ask Elena who else is with her. Around them Caroline uses her superspeed, frightening the cop holding Elena.

Elena tells her that she knows and she was so mad at Caroline then she tried to put herself in her position to try to figure out why she would do that to her and Stefan after being such a friend to her.

Elena said she should be they all should be scared of her. Caroline ask why is Katherine doing this to them. "That's the million dollar question" Elena says.

Elena tries to follow her, but gets stopped by the Mystic Falls barrier. Caroline realizes Elena is the "Border Lurker."

A compelled Elena tells her that she feels like things are taking a turn for the better and is ready to go to a party. Caroline offers to come spend the night in the dorms, then Elena tells Caroline that she loves her and Caroline's response is "I love you too", then they hangs up the phone.
Elena: Because you've been avoiding me, and I wanted you to know that whatever is going on with you and Matt, it's ok.
Caroline: I was gonna talk to you about that. I was, but there's just not much to say. You know, we've hung out a couple times. That's it, but... I just feel like we've peeked as friends. [Elena nods.] This is weird. I shouldn't be talking to you about this. It's weird. It's weird, right?
Elena: It's a little weird, but [laughs] if it's what you and Matt want, then it's not about me.
Caroline: But it's all about you. Matt's not over you, and we all know it.
Elena: I'm with Stefan now. Matt understands that. He knows he has to move on.
(Elena unwraps her sandwich and Caroline looks at her, unconvinced)
Caroline: Why not? We all haven’t gone out together before and I don’t want it to be uncomfortable for us. Look the couple dynamics have changed and there’s been a little awkwardness between you, Matt, and me and I just think it’s important that we get over it.
(Elena is washing her hands. Caroline is sitting behind her)
Elena: I need to find Stefan, this isn’t me, I’m not this person anymore.
Caroline: No, no, no way, no. You had your chance to drop out and believe me I was all for it because there is no way that I could beat you. Elena, you’re doing this because it was important to your mom.
Elena: Caroline, what part of “I’m worried about Stefan” didn’t sink in?
Caroline: What’s the rush? Why are you hurrying to get to a relationship that will never work?
Elena: Okay, look. I know that you’re upset over Matt but will you stop projecting it onto me and Stefan please?
Caroline: I’m not projecting anything! You’re human, he’s a vampire. You're gonna be 70 and in diapers and he's still gonna be smoking hot and you will never have his children, Elena! And you are too maternal to not have children!
Elena: Why are you scared? Caroline, you can talk to me.
Caroline: Katherine’s gonna be there and she’s gonna want me to tell her everything that happened today. She told me I had to spy on you and report back to her.
Elena: I know and I’ve been so mad at you. But then, I tried to put myself in your position so that I could understand why you would do this to me and to Stefan because he’s been such a friend to you. Who did she threaten?
Caroline: Matt, she threatened Matt and I’m so scared of her Elena! I am so scared of her.
Elena: And you should be. Caroline, we all should be.
Caroline: Why is she doing this? What does she want?
(Elena grabs the box and a snake inches towards her. It wraps onto her. Elena screams and throws the snake off of her. Another snake has crawled up her arm. She backs up against the wall and pulls the box out its hiding spot. She ties the chain around herself again.)
Caroline: Yeah, and now, it's just a reminder that technically, I'm dead. [beat] Look, I didn't even like 17. And the only point to being 17 is to get to 18. It's a filler year; I'm stuck in a filler year.
Caroline: Yeah, he's not here. He was already discharged. And she seems perfectly nice by the way... a little intense, maybe. But... I think it's sweet, you wanna make sure Alaric's not dating a total psycho.
Elena: He's my family. I have to look out for him. What?
Elena: I can’t expect you to be okay with this. But at least these herbs that Bonnie’s giving him, they’re healing him and they’re keeping the dark side buried.
Caroline: Yeah, and that’s supposed to make everything okay?
(Elena grabs Caroline’s arm and Caroline faces her. Caroline is teary eyed.)
Elena: No, Caroline, it’s not okay. It’s horrible and I feel horrible about it, but he’s a victim of something supernatural, he didn’t ask for this, it just happened to him. Just like Bonnie’s mom, I mean, she didn’t ask to become a vampire. And neither did Stefan or Tyler.
(Cut to the Gilbert house, where Caroline is on the phone while Klaus remains trapped in the living room. The shots alternate between Caroline in the Gilbert house and Elena on the island throughout their conversation.]
Elena: When we got back from looking for Jeremy, Shane and Bonnie were gone too. Shane needs Bonnie to cast a spell on Jeremy’s tattoo in order to find the cure, and he managed to sneak them both out from under our noses.
Stefan: Yeah, but if anyone’s gonna get him to give it up, it’s Caroline.
Rebekah: He will never give up the sword, not even for Caroline. He’s terrified we’ll use the cure against him to make him mortal, and even if he wasn’t, he wouldn’t want any of us to derive a moment’s worth of happiness from being human.
Stefan: Well, maybe he doesn’t have to give it up. I mean, Klaus is stuck in Elena’s house by Bonnie’s spell. He can’t go anywhere. There's only so many places you can hide a three-foot piece of metal.
Caroline: I’ll find it, don’t worry. Just e-mail me photos of Jeremy’s tattoo. I’ll find the sword, and I’ll call you back.
Caroline (To Elena): Hey, you're home. I was trying to clean the burn mark where Kol... (She sees Stefan carrying Jeremy, his body wrapped in a blanket) I couldn't get the spot out.
Elena (To Caroline): It's possible, Caroline. There's a chance. It may be miniscule, but it's hope and I'm gonna hold on to that hope with everything that I've got because there's no way that m... There's absolutely no way that my brother is dead... I'm not in denial.
Elena: What else are we supposed to do with the body, Caroline? I mean, there's no... there's no room in the Gilbert family plot. [throws the frame down on the floor and the glass cracks] Jenna and-- and John took the last spots.
Caroline: What's with the ribbon? That's not even our colors.
(Elena simply gives her a cute sly smile, twirls her ponytail, and walks away while Caroline watches her uneasily. She then catches sight of the girl Elena fed on; she now has a scarf tied around her neck and is pulling at it uncomfortably. Upset, Caroline catches up to Elena.)
(Elena is still dancing on a table, pouring alcohol into someone's mouth. Stefan and Caroline are dancing together, laughing and talking. Elena sees them enjoying themselves, jumps down from the table and approaches them.)
Elena: No. You guys look good together. (smiling) By all means, Care, just take him out for a spin. He could use it.
Caroline: Elena! Don't make me fight you, Elena! I'm stronger than you, and I don't want to hurt you.
(Elena vamp-speeds into the clearing, throws Caroline against a tree then throws her down onto the ground.)
Elena: (on top of Caroline, holding her down at the throat) Who's gonna get hurt?
(Caroline throws Elena off and they both stand up, facing each other.)
Elena: Not bad. Not technically good, but then again, Alaric didn't train you. You were probably too busy butting into people's business!
(Elena swings her leg up to kick Caroline but Caroline dodges her. Caroline tries to grab her but Elena grabs Caroline's throat. Caroline tries to loosen Elena's grip but then Elena headbutts her.)
Caroline: (putting a hand to her forehead) Oh, just stop! God. This isn't you, and you know it! You hurt my mom, Elena. How far are you gonna take this?
Elena: Are you trying to make me feel bad for hurting your mom? Don't you get it? I don't care. I mean, maybe you should try to turn it all off. Who knows? You might stop whining about how Tyler left you. Added bonus: you won't have to feel guilty about all the dirty thoughts you have about Klaus.
(Caroline strikes Elena and they engage in hand-to-hand combat.)
Elena: (holding Caroline's fist) You fight like a girl.
(Elena breaks Caroline's arm, snaps a small branch off of a nearby tree and stabs her in the stomach with it. Caroline falls to her knees, Elena pulls the branch out of Caroline and is about to stake her through the back when Stefan vamp-speeds into the clearing with Damon and restrains her.)
Caroline: I brought you something. It doesn't have any vervain in it, I swear. I just figured a little blood might help you think straight.
(She approaches Elena, holding out the bottle after she opens it. Elena pauses for a moment before seizing on the bottle and drinking it desperately.)
Caroline: For the record, I don't agree with what they're doing. I mean, I agree that you need to turn your humanity back on, but I don't think that making you suffer is the way to do it. That's not who you are.
(Elena spins the empty bottle on the stone floor.)
Elena: This annoying, clingy thing that you're doing-- did it ever occur to you maybe that's why both your boyfriends skipped town? I mean, I know that Tyler said he was running for his life, but maybe he was running from you. And Klaus? I mean, let's just say it: nobody likes a tease. Hey, I'm not judging. Might be nice to have a bad boy ruffle those perfect feathers.
(Caroline tries to keep it together.)
Caroline: You're in pain, you're lashing out, I get it. But you can't stay this way forever. We're about to graduate, and start new lives! And you deserve--
Elena: Are you seriously talking about high school graduation? Caroline, do you realize how pathetic you're gonna look in that cap and gown, pretending to be human while your mom fake-smiles and just counts down the minutes until you leave town so that you can stop being a reminder that her daughter is a repulsive, blood-sucking control freak monster?
(Caroline, losing her patience, stands up and turns away.)
Elena: It's really too bad Stefan stopped me before I put you out of your misery, but hey, here's to second chances.
(Elena vamp-speeds over to Caroline to attack her. Caroline holds her off while Elena growls, teeth bared.)
Elena: They're not dreams, it's more of a... feeling. Maybe you should call him.
Caroline: So he can hear how happy you are with Damon? Absolutely not. He'll call you when he's ready.
Elena: So I should just live with this nagging pit in my stomach?
Caroline: Okay, Elena, that pit is called guilt. You feel terrible because you broke Stefan's heart, and that nagging feeling is your brain waking up to tell you that you've made a horrible, yet completely reversible mistake.
Elena: Nice try. Besides, Stefan and I left things in a good place.
Caroline: It doesn't mean he hasn't been thinking about you shacking up with his brother all summer long.
Caroline: I do. His name's Tyler. He had to miss move-in day, but he'll be here for the first day of classes.
Elena: Assuming he registers. And picks a dorm. And buys books.
(Elena puts on earrings while watching herself in the mirror, seeming lost in thought until Caroline loudly shuts a drawer and Elena snaps out of it. The shower can be heard running in the background.)
Caroline: Did you notice how Megan's juicer takes up all the small appliance space? She has an entire drawer dedicated to organic linen.
Caroline: Maybe if she didn't take such long showers, I wouldn't have time to go through her stuff. How are you okay with a third roommate?
Elena: Because we're trying to be functional, and being functional means we need friends.
Caroline: We also need personal space. I mean, what if we suddenly get a craving, and I want to eat her? Or our blood bags go bad because we can't store them in the mini-fridge? Ugh, and what the hell is protein water?
(Caroline pulls out the bottle in question, and Elena shrugs.)
Caroline: You know what, maybe if I drink it all, she'll wanna move out.
Caroline: Seriously? We share a bathroom with this girl! What if she's a hunter, and she stakes us when we're in the shower? Or she steals our daylight rings while we're asleep and then we burst into flames when the sun comes up?!
Elena: Don't you think that, if she was a hunter, we'd be dead by now?
Caroline: I think we should lock her up. You know, let the vervain get out of her system, and then we compel her to forget about us.
Elena: Caroline, I'm not kidnapping our roommate! The best way to convince her that we're normal, is to act normal. And do normal, human, freshman-y stuff.
Elena: Along with her so-called suicide note. Can I see the phone for a second?
(Caroline hands it over and Elena looks through the photos in it.)
Caroline: It just doesn't make any sense. First, the roommate we're not supposed to have might know about vampires, and then happens to be killed by a vampire, and now the school's covering it up? Seriously, who is this girl?
Elena: Whatever's going on, it's not just about our roommate. It's about me.
(She holds up the phone to show Caroline a photo.)
(Elena suddenly remembers something, and hands a folder to Caroline.)
Elena: Oh, um, I went by the hospital this morning—Megan's death certificate. It says she died of suicide. No mention of the gaping vampire-bites on her neck. So, whoever signed off on the cause of death was part of the cover-up—just like the Founder's Council back home.
Elena: A.K.A., our Applied Microbiology professor. I switched our classes around, so that we could...
Caroline: Applied—what, what? Uh, Elena, we are supposed to be taking Intro. to Communication. What happened to getting drunk and making bad decisions about boys? What happened to our fun freshman year at college? I am supposed to be a drama major!
Elena: You're not going to be an Anything major if we get exposed as vampires!
(Elena stops, realizing her voice had been rising. Both she and Caroline take a deep breath, and Elena smiles.)
Elena: We are still gonna have our fun year, Caroline, but we have to protect ourselves. The way Damon kept his secret in Mystic Falls was because he infiltrated the Founder's Council. So, bust out those alleged acting skills, and let's get on it, okay?
(Elena smiles at her, and finally Caroline relaxes and smiles back.)
Elena: (About Jesse) What? You said you wanted to make bad decisions about boys. He's cute, he's interested, and most importantly, unlike Tyler, he's here.
Caroline: Of course I did. I'm also trying to impress Dr. Maxfield. I figured if I could get closer to him, i.e. into his biology class, maybe I could figure out why he covered up our roommate's murder by vampire, and it's also possible that I have a study buddy.
(Caroline enters a classroom. She puts her phone on her shoulder.)
Caroline: Hi, Dr. Maxfield. Are you ready to go study, Jesse? (She returns her phone to her ear.)
Elena: Jesse? Dr. Maxfield's incredibly hot, funny, and miraculously single lab assistant?
Caroline: I'm dragging him to our hometown graveyard bell-ringing ceremony.
Damon: She didn't have a choice, all right? Once he had the taste of vampire blood, there was nothing stopping him. Go ask Dr. Frankenstein. I'll go deal with him. (He lets go of Elena and heads back into the lab.) Ugh!
Caroline: Yeah. Me, too. Because the Elena that I used to know would have given Jesse a chance.
(Elena looks hurt.)
(Elena and Caroline are cleaning up after the party.)
Caroline: I'm sorry. I didn't mean what I said earlier. It was out of line. It just sucks, you know, cause Jesse was one of the good ones.
Elena: I know, and I wouldn't have killed him if I could have done something. He was dangerous. I need you to believe that. (Caroline doesn't respond and keeps on cleaning up.) I need you to believe me when I tell you that Caroline.
Caroline: I believe you, ok? I believe you want to celebrate the fact that we can go to school and function like regular freshmen. I get that. I want that, too, but, Elena, when are you gonna figure out that the outside world is not nearly as dangerous as the person you're inviting into your own bedroom?
Elena: (sarcastically) Wow! Why don't you tell me how you really feel?
Caroline: The day that I stop telling you is the day that we're no longer best friends, and I hope that day never comes.
Caroline : I'm not upset. Just looking for Luke, you know, Luke, who was here to protect you and Stefan, Luke, who's now missing because you and Stefan lied about where Enzo was, and now the Travelers can find you, do their spell, and wipe us all off the face of the earth!
Elena : They make me see Damon. (turns to Caroline) I can talk to him, and, and I can be with him, and -
Caroline : God, is this what you've been doing this whole time? Hallucinating your dead boyfriend?
Elena : I tried to grieve him, Caroline. Trust me, I know grief. I've got grieving down to a science at this point, and I tried. But every time I let it sink in that I'm never gonna see him again, I feel like I'm gonna die.
Caroline : Oh God, I get it okay? I do. But, there are better ways to get through this.
Elena : Like what? Like dropping out of school and having picnics with my mom, near the town border? Or maybe I could pull a Stefan and bounce from country to country, chasing some false hope that we're gonna find a way to bring Damon and Bonnie back. We're all getting through it. This is me, getting through it, okay?
Caroline : Yeah but you're not getting through it, Elena. You're just pressing pause. (sighs) Look, I'll call my mom and she can fix all this. But you need to get out of here, go hide, okay? So just... go.
(Elena is sitting at the edge of a bench with her phone to her ear.)
Elena : You're the last person I think would object to me erasing positive memories of Damon from my head.
(Caroline is in her car, her phone to her ear also.)
Caroline : Yeah, but we are literally chasing a lead. W-what if we find something out? Yeah, you know what if Damon returns home and everything returns back to normal? And you're just sitting there all confused and weird?
(Caroline is in her car, balling her eyes out. Her makeup is smeared and she is practically wailing. But then her cell phone buzzes and she picks it up, she attempts to take the tearyness from her voice.)
