This is so the doppelgangers would get together, and the travelers could have their blood. After it is proven that none of them are possessed, Liv explains that the travelers are probably taking over Mystic Falls by getting into people's bodies, and their job is to find them and stab them with the traveler's knife to kill them. Meanwhile Sheriff Forbes and Mayoress Lockwood are deposed from their position by the council after being denounced by Alaric, and they ask Caroline and Tyler to leave town.

He also gives him the only travelers' knife that was left, and Marcos destroys it. She does not like it, and she stabs Matt in the neck killing him she is possessed by a traveler and sending him to the other side. They know that those were not real but what they felt for each other was, and it was not the result of the doppelganger curse since that curse was fake.

Elena's vision stops, and she says that she knows where Marcos is. She wakes up and feels that what she saw was weird.
Realizing that she is possessed, he stabs her to kill the traveler inside her. He was the one who cast a spell 1500 years ago, promising true love. But while the Sun and Moon curse reveal was electrifying and downright brave, the doppelganger prophecy twist just seems limp and sad in comparison. His transitions from the regular action to the visions were especially impressive. Liz comes in and hears the end of the conversation.
