Last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries was an intense one, with Jeremy finally telling everyone that Bonnie was dead — oh yeah, and Stefan still doesn’t have his memory and is slowing going homicidal again — so it’s self-explanatory that we’re already looking forward to Season 5, Episode 5: “Monster’s Ball.”

The extended promo, which we have to admit isn’t very different from the one shown at the end of last night’s episode, shows Damon ready to team up with Silas, Bonnie confronting Jeremy, Dr. Wes Maxfield lurking over Jesse’s ripped bod, and Silas telling Damon that he wants him to kill his brother. Collective gasp, TVD fans!

The one addition that is truly giving us life is the scene in which Nadia (Olga Fonda) tells Katherine that Silas needs every drop her blood — is it something to do with The Cure running through her veins?! We’re intrigued to know more about what exactly Silas is looking for in Mystic Falls, but our money is on The Cure and/or doppelganger drama.

Damon is also giving us a lot to look forward to this season, with him wanting to bring Bonnie back from the dead and then teaming up with Silas only to find out that he might have to kill Stefan, which is intense because we already heard from Tessa/Qetsiyah (Janina Gavankar), that Damon and Elena will never be together as long as Stefan is alive.

We’re really excited about TVD’s Halloween episode, which airs next Thursday, October 31, at 8 p.m. on The CW. Don’t miss it!
