Directly following the events of the season one finale, Founder's Day, Eva is seen at the hospital with Bonnie waiting for Elena to arrive after she was told of Caroline's situation. As they wait for Elena to arrive, Bonnie asks Eva if she could give Caroline some of her blood to heal her. Eva is hesitant on the idea, claiming that she isn't entirely sure what her blood would do to Caroline - if it would heal her properly or not - what with her not being a normal vampire. When Damon and Elena arrive, Damon then suggests then he gives Caroline some of his blood. Elena turns it down immediately, but Bonnie agrees.
Eva leaves the hospital, intent on going back home to the boarding house to get some rest however she soon receives a call from Stefan telling her that Katherine is in town. She quickly joins Stefan, Damon and Elena at the Gilbert house, where they then talk about what Katherine wants. Eva initially isn't that alarmed about Katherine's arrival into Mystic Falls however that quickly changes once she is informed on what Katherine did to John, Elena's "uncle". Eva is also told by Stefan for the first time that Elena is Katherine's descendant and doppelganger.
The next day, Eva pays her respect to the Lockwood Family after the tragic death of Tyler's father, Richard Lockwood. At the funeral, Eva notices Daniel, whom she instantly recongises to be a new comer to the town. She later finds out that he is Tyler's cousin from his father's side of the family.
- Eva: "I'm not your little minion, Damon."
- Damon: "No, but I am older than you and that makes me the boss of you."
- Eva: "The hell I'm going to snoop around some dead guy's property!"
- — Eva argues with Damon.
Eva soon left the Lockwood mansion and joined Stefan, Damon and Elena out in the garden after she learns of Katherine's attack on Stefan. Whilst discussing Katherine's motives, Damon points out his suspicions towards the Lockwood family (especially Mason) that he had since Richard was affected by the Gilbert device. He tells Eva to snoop around the Lockwood property to see if she can find anything that would acknowledge Damon's suspicions. Eva isn't pleased with the idea and annoyed that Damon thinks he can use her as a personal minion, however she eventually gives in just to shut him up.
Later that day, once the funeral was over and the guest were gone, Eva snuck back onto the Lockwood property to do as Damon requested. She finds nothing, however she is eventually caught snooping around by Daniel. He tells her that she is trespassing on private property and has to leave. Once Eva leaves, she returns to Damon and tells him she found nothing. Damon isn't entirely convinced by Eva's lack of evidence, and continues to pursue his suspicions that the Lockwood's have a supernatural family secret.
