Elena (Nina Dobrev) doesn’t feel anything, and that’s a problem. The Salvatore solution? Torture her until fear starts to creep in. Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) take things pretty far — the promo video shows her burning when they expose her to sunlight, Bill Forbes style. But Elena knows — and we do, too — that the brothers will never actually kill her.

Katherine (Nina Dobrev) steps in to lend her talents, which definitely makes us a little more nervous for the baby bloodsucker. But it’s Matt (Zach Roerig) we’re really worried about in this scenario. Damon decides to use him as emotion-bait for Elena — by putting his life in danger. Poor Matty. He really needs to start keeping a stake in his back pocket.

Caroline (Candice Accola) has a dangerous encounter with Klaus (Joseph Morgan). He wouldn’t really menace her after leaving that sweet voicemail from New Orleans, would he? Of course, he does have big baby news to share. Maybe she doesn’t take it well...
