Stefan (Paul Wesley) tried to reawaken her emotions with an intimate dance, but she repeatedly told him she felt nothing. Damon (Ian Somerhalder) watched them getting close, got jealous, and worried about his connection to Elena. Earlier, she’d told the elder Salvatore, “You’re nothing to me, Damon” and said she only told him she loved him because of the sire bond.
Not only did she steal Caroline’s (Candice Accola) dress, she added insult to injury by implying she looked better in it anyway. The blond vamp wasn’t the only one of her friends to get Emotionless Elena’d.
She told Bonnie (Kat Graham) she was a walking reminder of all the tragedy in her life and said the only thing Matt (Zach Roerig) was good for was getting her a job at the Grill. Even her new pal Rebekah (Claire Holt) wasn’t spared. “You’re not a good person,” she said flatly to the wannabe human.
That was just the emotional damage Elena did. She nearly killed both Bonnie and April Young (Grace Phipps). They both healed, so perhaps the baby vamp’s psychic wounds were more painful than her physical ones?
