Shirtless torture? Must be The Vampire Diaries!

Things are not looking good for Klaus (Joseph Morgan) on the CW hit's March 28 outing "American Gothic," but at least we get to enjoy some scenes of the Original hybrid shirtless!

New photos from the episode have just been released that show a shirtless and bloodied Klaus sharing an intense moment with Caroline (Candice Accola). Oh, and fan-favorite Elijah (Daniel Gillies) finally returns!

While it may look like Caroline is torturing Klaus (given the pliers, blood and all), the logline for the episode reveals he'll receive her reluctant help. Hmmm...any guesses? We're thinking it could have something to do with Silas staking Klaus with the white oak dagger.

As for Elijah's highly anticipated return, Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Rebekah (Claire Holt) run into the dapper vamp when they find themselves in a small town in Pennsylvania while on their search for the cure. And man, is he a sight for sore eyes!

Of course, Gillies is set to star in the Vampire Diaries' spinoff, The Originals, so fans can look forward to seeing a lot more of Elijah should the project be picked up to series.

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday at 8 p.m. on the CW.
