At the hospital, Caroline and Enzo traded barbs while waiting for someone to tell them where they could find Tom. I am so easy: The way Enzo smiled while talking about how that Augustine observer Maggie had just reminded him that he was good all along -- I felt my walls crumbling. It's true what the TVD producers say: Candice Accola could have chemistry with any man. Someone finally told them that Tom disappeared four months ago. No one knows where he is. What?

Caroline called Stefan and broke the news. Sloan wasted no time "going deeper" into his head. This time, Stefan saw a vision of a woman, Hazel, brazenly inviting Tom to dinner to thank him for saving her friend. Caroline felt helpless hearing Stefan in pain. The fun of speaker phones. Finally, Stefan said the address that Hazel had given Tom. He also told Caroline that Tom was a good person and she shouldn’t do it. THANK YOU FOR SAYING IT, STEFAN. But Sloan reminded Caroline that the clock was ticking.

Waiting for the teacher to join the conference, Damon had time to tell Elena about seeing Jeremy and Liv together. He's cheated with a ghost, Damon reminded her, so another witch isn't too much of a stretch. I laughed out loud when the teacher said Jeremy had missed 11 days of school. ONLY 11? He's started three fights and has been caught cheating twice in math class. He needs a more stable living situation. Sadly, we cut away before she could get to the good news.

Enzo and Caroline went to the address and found Hazel the witch inside in a trance. Had she been sitting there, eyes whited out, for four months? No, because her candles would have burned out, right? When Caroline and Enzo couldn't enter because she owned the house, Enzo threw the doorknob at her head and killed her. Enter!

Back at Whitmore, Bonnie spoke to Luke. Then dead Hazel showed up and told Bonnie to tell him that she had failed. She tried to hide the doppelgänger, but "they" found him. So wait, is Luke good?
