For the second attempt he spies in on her over room, enters via StockFootage...and then runs away because Mel is also in the room, asleep in a few nights. chair.

** Non-evil vampires can walk in sunlight such as Stefan, it also why he looks the most human unlike Radu who follows the path of evil and looks deformed. [[spoiler: Michelle is sorta half in half. As she drinks blood from humans, she shuned by the sunlight but isn't really evil since its more of a survival thing and half the time is mostly forced on her.]]
** Radu himself thanks to his mixed heritage though he is always referred to as a vampire. He can create the miniture subspecies creatures from drops of his blood and return from deaths that would kill regular vampires. At the same time he is vulnerable to all of the conventional vampire weaknesses.
