ELECTION FEVER — Tensions rise among the students after Alaric decides to give the students a bigger voice by forming an honor council. Determined to find out more about Landon's past, Hope does a series of magical tests on him. Meanwhile, Alaric and Dorian take on the next creature to try and find out what they want and where they are coming from.
- Lizzie and MG ran for the honor council at the Salvatore school made by Alaric, though they were not elected.
- Dorian and Alaric figured out the pattern that the monsters come one at a time, that he already had to kill a "crazy wraith thing". Prior to the Dryad, none of the previous creatures could communicate.
- The Dryad also confirms that she, at least at one point in time, was (or is) not the only one of her species.
- At an unknown point in time, supernatural species other than witches, werewolves, and vampires, were known to the world. However, something happened that erased their existence from the world. This is shown when Oliver no longer recognized the dryad he had fallen in love with and became a vampire for.
