The Vampire Diaries’s official Facebook page has posted a spoiler video from Episode 1: “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” and it’s enough to make any Delena fan squeal with joy. Elena is seen sitting in a bathtub, and a very shirtless Damon is standing right next to her.
The lovebirds share the most adorable conversation, but it’s all overshadowed by the unfortunate truth hanging over their heads: Elena is just one day away from heading off to college, and that means she and Damon will have to do things long distance. Just when they’ve finally gotten together, something is pulling them apart.
“You’re trading all this for communal showers and meal plans,” he tells her. When he says “all this,” he motions to the beautiful Salvatore mansion. But we all know he’s actually referring to those washboard abs of his. If we had shirtless Damon that close to us, we’d never go anywhere. Ever again.
“Can’t you just be a normal boyfriend,” Elena asks, “and support me as I attempt to have a normal college experience?”
Damon’s not having any of it. “I’d rather ply you with champagne and spend the night convincing you to stay.” Uh...yes. We’d rather that happen, too. Somebody make it a reality — stat.
