The Vampire Diaries returns with new episodes in just over a month, so the CW is rolling out new promos to get you pumped. In an extended preview for next season, take a glimpse back at how it all started and watch where the bloodsucking storyline is headed next.
"It's not necessarily going to be the funnest [sic] season for Damon," Ian Somerhalder reveals. "I think that he's going to be challenged a lot where I don't think he was used to being challenged. I think there are some things that are gonna wreak more havoc in Mystic Falls than he probably did in season one."
And one of those mayhem causing forces is without a doubt named Katherine. In the season finale, Damon kissed Elena, or so he thought. (Katherine was pretending to be Elena since they're, you know, identical.) Will the creepy resemblance and Damon's past with Katherine cause him to have feelings for Elena?
"I don't know," the darker Salvatore bro spills, but he does confess that the only time you'll see the more vulnerable side of Damon is when he's with Elena. "Nina Dobrev'll do that to you. No two ways about it."
