Do you think ‘Ripper’ Stefan will ever return to his former, bunny-eating glory? Or should Elena just cut her losses and stick with Damon?

The Vampire Diaries fans’ long, smolder-less summer has finally come to an end — but something tells me Stefan (Paul Wesley) isn’t quite as excited about the big return as we are. In this new preview video from tonight’s season premiere, Stefan is still on the loose with his new bloody buddy Klaus (Joseph Morgan) — and his soapy, naked brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) isn’t exactly busting his butt to find him.

But Elena (Nina Dobrev) is still hot on her boyfriend’s trail, and a new clue from Sheriff “Terrible Aim” Forbes leads Alaric (Matt Davis)  to Memphis, Tenn.

Back in Mystic Falls, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) has his hands full with his ghostly ex-girlfriends Vicki (Kayla Ewell) and Anna (Malese Jow.) And Tyler (Michael Trevino) appears to be working on getting a girlfriend of his very own. Hmm… I wonder who that could be?

Watch the preview video of tonight’s premiere, “The Birthday,” below — including commentary from Executive Producer Julie Plec – then cast your vote: Do you think Stefan will ever be back to normal?
