(Justin Stephens/The CW)

On November 29.

Stefan and Elena hit a rough patch and Caroline does her best to help them both through it. Damon is less concerned about his brother's relationship than he is about what Professor Shane is getting up to behind their backs. In spite of Damon's prodding to help him out with the prof, Stefan is already busy on a cunning plan of his own with Klaus.

The Miss Mystic Falls Pageant kicks into gear and gives Elena and Caroline a reason to take a break from the vampire angst. They team up to help April find something appropriate to wear. Meanwhile, since Tyler has teamed up to work with Hayley on his own secret project, Damon is left all alone to confront Professor Shane.

And Jeremy continues being terrorized by nightmares. He turns to Matt for some help. But before they can do anything to stop them, the problem turns into something far worse than they'd expected.
