When last we saw The Vampire Diaries crew, torture was afoot. In Season 4, Episode 21, “She’s Come Undone,” the Salvatores unleash every weapon in their arsenal to convince their favorite unemotional vampire to feel. It’s a pretty brutal 25 seconds to get through, so let’s get to it!
0:01 — Damon from above
0:02 – 0:03 He misses the old Elena.
The new one is a tad murder-y for some tastes.
0:04 — Elena gives him the side-eye.
Is “annoyed” an emotion?
0:05 – 0:06 — Stefan wants to provoke Elena.
Tell her about Klaus’s baby. That should shock her back into reality.
0:07 — She definitely looks provoked.
And headed, fangs bared, for someone.
0:08 – 0:09 — Caroline does not approve.
Probably remembers her own torture sessions with her dad.
0:10 — “How far would you go?”
Tying someone to a chair and torturing someone is pretty far, but by Mystic Falls standards it’s just another Tuesday.
0:11 — Damon pleads his case.
He really wants Elena back.
0:12 — Stefan doesn’t seem convinced.
These bros never agree on anything.
0:13 — Ropes.
Fifty Shades of Gruesome.
0:14 — Damon will stop at nothing to get Elena back.
Even torture. How... romantic?
0:16 — Stefan makes a face.
Pay no attention to the man in front of the curtain.
0:17 — Sunlight!
Except when he rips it open to sizzle you...
0:18 — This girl is on fiiiiiiire!
Literally. Someone put her out.
0:19 — Elena screams.
Ugh, this is kind of horrible to watch.
0:21 — Stefan from above.
Hello, angel number two.
0:22 – 0:23 — Stefan gives Elena a “choice.”
News flash: If one of the options is “or we keep torturing you,” it’s not really a choice.
0:24 — Elena threatens Stefan’s life.
Hey, we’d be mad, too.
