Over at Mossy Manse, Damon hides some Son of White Oak stakes among his firewood, so Alaric mocks him about the time he hid the moonstone in his soap dish. Damon asks Alaric where he hid his stake, but before he can answer, there's a crashing noise upstairs. They go to investigate. Ric gets thrown down the stairs. Damon turns around, only to have Rebekah stake him in the gut. Commercial.
Matt, Caroline and Elena are downtown. Elena mentions that she hasn't been able to reach Bonnie. Caroline kind of looks like she wants to say maybe Bonnie's avoiding Elena's calls, but before she says anything at all, Matt notices Finn and Sage across the street. Caroline uses her vamponic hearing to tune in on their conversation. Sage still loves Finn. She doesn't want him to die.
When Stefan returns to Mossy Manse, he's on the phone with Elena. She tells him Finn is downtown with an ex-girlfriend. Stefan figures out it must be Sage. Elena wants to take advantage of the opportunity to kill Finn, but Stefan warns her that since Sage is so old and powerful, it's too dangerous. Elena tells Stefan to get Damon and get downtown, just as Stefan happens upon poor, injured Alaric. When Stefan asks what happened to him, Alaric says Rebekah did. Stefan tells Elena he thinks they have a problem. When do they not?
Over at Klaus Haus, Rebekah has Damon chained up. She has stuck his hands in animal traps -- you know, the kind with teeth. The traps are connected to chains which are suspended from the ceiling. Rebekah is punishing him because he slept with her in order to let Sage read her thoughts. She's decided to bleed the vervain from his system. He asks if she's going to compel him to be her boyfriend. She'd rather compel him to kill Stefan or Elena. Either way, it's going to take a while, and Rebekah is clearly getting off on torturing Damon. Klaus comes in and suggests hanging Damon upside down to speed up the process. Rebekah wants to play the game her own way, and tells Klaus to go manage his witch.
Bonnie is in another room, studying the unlinking spell. Klaus threatens her, her loved ones, etc. because that's his favorite pastime. She's just not sure she's strong enough to perform it. Klaus tells her she's not trying, and then he calls Kol. Kol is in Colorado, stalking Jeremy. He sends Klaus video of Jeremy playing fetch with his new puppy.
