Old tensions are starting to escalate between Hope and Lizzie (Danielle Rose Russell, Jenny Boyd), but they're forced to set aside their differences and present a united defense when the latest monster arrives at the school in the new episode "Do All Malivore Monsters Provide This Level of Emotional Insight?" Elsewhere, Alaric (Matthew Davis) concocts an excuse to keep tabs on Josie (Kaylee Bryant) at Mystic Falls High, and Cleo (guest star Omono Okojie) helps Kaleb (Chris Lee) cope with recent issues involving MG (Quincy Fouse). Aria Shahghasemi also stars.
