Matt returned from Europe with Rebekah, who soon left. Matt went with Caroline, Elena and Tyler to Whitmore College, where he met Faith Holloway.

Matt discovered that Faith was a Witch and a descendant of Damon Salvatore, who had had a night of passion in an inn while drunk and fighting in the Civil War. Matt discovered what Faith did for Shane and judged her unfairly for it.

Matt returned to Mystic Falls with Caroline after Qetsiyah's visit to Whitmore.

Matt helped Jeremy try to handle Bonnie and her new magic, whilst the others in the group tried to stop Katherine and Nadia.
