The newest promo for The Vampire Diaries season 5 gives us a glimpse into Elena’s college life — dorm rooms! bonfires! — and our first look at Silas pretending to be Stefan in front of Damon. Does anyone else think Damon looks a little scared? Perhaps he’s worried about how Stefan’s “return” will affect his relationship with Elena?
Speaking of Elena, she’s off “giving it the old college try,” while Damon is stuck in Mystic Falls assuring her that the distance won’t hurt their relationship, even though Katherine has made herself right at home — in his bathtub. However, he doesn’t seem to be taking the bait, which is more than can be said for Silas, who seems to be flirting with the now-human Katerina, though we’re sure he has an agenda. But most importantly, let’s all take a moment to appreciate that Katherine is shaving her legs with a straight razor. The woman’s classy.
Elsewhere, Jeremy’s getting in fights at school, and Elena has a “feeling like something bad is about to happen.” Well, if she’s involved in that car crash, she might have a point.
