In Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 4, “The Five,” Elena (Nina Dobrev) is going to be dealing with biter’s remorse after nearly killing her best bud, Matt (Zach Roerig).

Elena and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) crash Bonnie’s (Kat Graham) visit to Whitmore College. While the witch looks up Professor Shane (David Alpay), the guy who took over her Grams’s teaching post, the vampires hunt for prey at a “Murder House” party. Elena and Damon slip into costume and consume some party favors, aka, frat boys.

Back at home base, Stefan (Paul Wesley) is hearing all about The Five from Klaus (Joseph Morgan). It turns out, back in the 12 century, there was a big, bad vampire hunter named Alexander (Paul Telfer), who has a lot in common with the group’s current problem, Connor Jordan (Todd Williams).
