In the next all new episode of The Vampire Diaries, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) go on a road trip to save Damon (Ian Somerhalder) from himself. Or, more accurately, to save him from any unsuspecting vampires who may be in a 100-mile radius. Damon has been given the vampire cannibal serum, and he’s thirsty for vamp blood. Will Stefan and Katherine make it in time? From the looks of the promo for Season 5, Episode 14 (“No Exit”), maybe not.

Stefan is on a quest to save his brother. “Damon’s feeding on vampires. I have to find him,” says a guilt-ridden Stefan (but, really, is there any other kind?) at :01.

Katherine calls shotgun. Katherine-as-Elena is still taking every opportunity to throw herself at Stefan: “I could come with you,” she tells him, unconcerned about Damon’s fate, at :02.  At :03, they buckle up for a road trip!

Enzo ties Damon up. Meanwhile, Damon’s new craving for vampire blood is testing his rekindled friendship with Enzo. “I’m not gonna feed on you,” we see Damon tell Enzo at :05, as Enzo secures him to a chair. Given what we’ve seen from the vampire cannibals (and this show) so far, are those binds really going to keep Damon for long? Um, probably not.

Team Kenzo? It seems that Damon’s predicament has forged a tenuous bond between Enzo and Damon’s loved ones. “We’ll be there as soon as we can,” we see Katherine tell Enzo over the phone in an excellent Elena impression at :06. “Tick tock,” stresses Enzo as we see a shot of Damon struggling against his restraints.

Katherine has other priorities. Unfortunately for Enzo, reaching Damon isn’t exactly Katherine’s top priority right now. That would be getting Stefan into bed. At :11, we see a shot of Stefan looking under the hood of the car that suggest Katherine may have sabotaged their wheels. That Katherine!

Steamy hotel scene. “I saw a hotel. Do you think we should get a room?” she asks Stefan at :12. It seems that Stefan’s answer is yes considering the next shot we get is of Katherine kissing Stefan inside suggested hotel room. You got to give it to Katherine: she knows how to get results!
