Forgive us for ripping off a previous CW marketing campaign, but: OMFG.
There really is no alternate reaction to the trio of covers Entertainment Weekly just released in honor of The Vampire Diaries, specifically stars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. All three are featured across the main cover and two collector's items, and nary a shirt is to be seen...
Copies of the issue go on sale Friday, while inside producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson dish on the challenge of writing for a show with dueling, passionate fan bases.
"When we want Stefan and Elena to have a moment together, how can we do that and not have our Delena fans outraged?” Plec asks.
We've got an idea, Julie: just take Damon's shirt off. That will satisfy all viewers.
