The rules have changed on The Vampire Diaries Season 5, according to the CW's first promo, unveiled this afternoon. But some things remain the same.
Namely swooning over Damon and Elena as they trade "I love yous" and wishing that Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev were still together in real life.
Oh well. We'll always have TVD.
Also, we see Stefan (or his mysterious Shadow Self) putting the moves on newly-humanized Katherine, and Jeremy battling an unknown enemy. Watch:
The fan favorite returns for its fifth season Thursday, October 3 with "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and so many unsolved mysteries unfolding.
Chief among them? Whether Delena fans will break Twitter if their beloved couple actually stays together ... or if they break up. Either way. Breakage.
