We knew it was coming — after Damon put the
nail flame in the coffin on his relationship with Elena last week, we knew it’d only be a matter of time before Stefan found out, and flipped out. Well that time is now.
Stefan (Paul Wesley) is a good brother. We all know that. But when Damon (Ian Somerhalder) reveals to him the truth — that he burned Elena’s body which makes it pretty much impossible for her to ever return, Stefan reacts like any other human would: with a punch. Watch The Vampire Diaries sneak peek now!
“Have you ever done something so horrific you couldn’t even look yourself in the mirror?” Damon asks at the beginning of the trailer, while we relive the moment he threw a lit flame onto Elena’s body. (We still have yet to hear if this means that there’s now way Nina Dobrev could return. It means that’s done right?)
With that, we see Damon heading into a downward spiral out of control — and he turns to Julian (good choice, D) for help. “I have just the outlet for the overwhelming pain you must be feeling,” Julian (Todd Lasance) says to Damon. His answer? “Bring it on.”
With that, Damon decides to start fighting people in a ring, you know, to the death. Naturally Stefan isn’t about to throw in the towel and although he begs him to stop fighting, Damon doesn’t really care. “I can’t imagine caring about anyone ever again — not a single solitary soul.” At the end of the clip, Stefan demands to know what he did that has got him feeling this way.
“I killed Elena.” His answer is enough to earn a square punch from Stefan — and let’s just say, we don’t really blame him.
