Warning! Spoilers for Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 10, “After School Special.”

We’re still processing after all those detention confessions! Rebekah (Claire Holt) used her Original compulsion abilities to get some answers out of Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena (Nina Dobrev), and it wasn’t pretty. This is why so many people use the line, “It’s not you, it’s me” when they break up.

Elena admitted her feelings for Damon (Ian Somerhalder), right in front of his brother. “I didn’t sleep with Damon because of the sire bond; I slept with Damon because I’m in love with him,” a compelled Elena tells Rebekah when asked what secrets she was hiding. The blond Original wasn’t done extracting the truth yet, though.

Elena later said that while she loves Stefan, she’s no longer in love with him. He treats her like a project and looks at her like a broken toy, the new vampire explained.

Stefan was devastated and later, when Rebekah threatened to take away all the pain Elena had caused him, all his memories of her, he was willing. Of course, Rebekah refused to let him off the hook, daming him to an eternity of torment.

Surprisingly, Stefan then decided to team up with Bex, reasoning that they both hate their brothers. Ouch! He said he wanted to know how Elena really feels about Damon. It sounds like he still thinks the sire bond is at play.

How about you? Are you convinced by Elena’s sweet talk with Damon at the end of the episode, or do you side with Stefan?
