Just when you thought ‘Delena’ could live happily ever after, along comes a sexy new — and by ‘new,’ I mean super-old — threat to their happiness!
Oh, CW, how you tease us! The network just released a brand-new promo for the upcoming fifth season of The Vampire Diaries on Facebook, and it’s choc-full of surprises — both good and bad. Not only does it introduce a potential threat to Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon’s (Ian Somerhalder) long-distance relationship, but it also finds a certain hunky Gilbert at death’s door. I know, again!
Five Tasty Bites From The New ‘Vampire Diaries’ Trailer
1. Damon and Elena share a saucy, long-distance phone call. “Look at you, giving it the old college try,” he tells her from Mystic Falls, though I’m not sure why they didn’t just FaceTime. That’s a missed opportunity for product placement right there!
2. Katherine tempts Damon. OK, maybe I spoke too soon. The second Elena asks Damon if their long-distance relationship can work, a hot-mess Katherine steps out from the shadows and Damon definitely seems uneasy.
3. Katherine invites ‘Stefan’ into her bath. All right, maybe Kat’s just willing to take any Salvatore she can get her newly human hands on. Too bad she doesn’t know Stefan (Paul Wesley) is actually Silas!
4. Jeremy crashes his car. We all know the Gilbert family doesn’t have the best track record — pun intended — when it comes to its automotive history, but I at least thought Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) could handle himself behind the wheel. Guess not!
5. Damon faces spell-mageddon. “If I hear the word ‘doppelganger’ one more time,” he says, “I’m going to have to learn how to spell it!” (Good luck, bro. It’s taken me years to master.)
