Fans must wait all the way until October 8 for the premiere of The Vampire Diaries Season 7 on The CW.
Fortunately, the show's key cast members and producers gathered at Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend to provide scoop on the following upcoming storylines:
Damon without Elena in his life.
Caroline trying to stave off the formation of Staroline.
Enzo's big decision.
New villains in town.
The demise of Mystic Falls as we've known it.
Scroll through the following slides to gather up scoop on what will go down this fall on The Vampire Diaries Season 7...
A Dark Damon
Both Ian Somerhalder and Julie Plec teased that Damon will return to the "sexy, volatile, fun" Damon from Season 1 and 2. Said the producer: "For him, it’s 'Who am I without this girl right by my side?' We’re going to see a lot of naughty Damon trying not to be naughty."
Staroline... Not Forever?
Plec promises "many unexpected twists and turns" when it comes to Caroline and Stefan's relationship, as the former will be doing all she can to stave off the formation of Staroline. But it won't be easy for her.
Who's Going Shirtless?
It doesn't matter much to us, they're all pretty easy on the eyes, but Plec also teased "shirtless stuff every episode."
Choosing a Side
Enzo will have quite a dilemma on his hands when Season 7 opens. "It’s about choosing his allegiance," Michael Malarkey says. "Does he go with Lily and the Heretics or does he side with Damon? It’s a struggle for him." Look for a major decision to be made by the end of the premiere.
