Alaric is back and the brothers want him to shed light on the Lockwood boys, so he suggests they go to Isobel's old research office at Duke. Elena goes with Damon and Alaric, but Stefan stays behind to keep Caroline - who's incessantly avoiding Matt - safe. Don't you hate when your boyfriend doesn't realize you're a vampire?
Bonnie gives Caroline a ring and puts a spell on it that enables her to do human things, like stepping out in the daylight. But it isn't without warning. Caroline must refrain from killing others or Bonnie will take the power away.
At Duke, the "research assistant" lets them in, but then shoots a stake at Elena which Damon runs in front of. Turns out she freaked because she thought Elena was Katherine and had read that Damon should be dead. They explain what's going on and continue to research. The assistant explains an old legend of the curse of the sun and the moon. Six hundred years ago, the Aztec people were plagued by vampires and werewolves until a shaman cursed them, making vampires slaves to the sun and werewolves servants of the moon. Werewolves can attack humans, but they attack their prey of choice: vampires. There aren't many left alive, which explains why the Salvatore brothers have never come across one.
