In addition to all of the goods shared by The Vampire Diaries’ cast and executive producers at Comic-Con this weekend, a tiny sneak peek at Season 4 was also released during the panel.

In the video, a recap of previous events detailing Elena’s desire not to be a vampire is offered up first, including a tearful flashback of the first time she thought she’d become a vamp. Then there are a few all-too-brief scenes from Season 4, which the cast has been shooting for only a week.

“To feed or not to feed?” the teaser asks.

“You feed or you die. There is no door number three,” Damon (Ian Somerhalder) says in the new footage. A bro-down between Damon and Stefan (Paul Wesley) commences, with Stefan telling Damon, “You weren’t there the day Elena looked me in the eye and told me she absolutely never wanted this.”

Damon fires back, “You shouldn’t have let her die,” and Stefan yells, “I never meant for her to die.” Damon seethes at Stefan’s decision to save Matt (Zach Roerig) over Elena — which she demanded, of course — saying, “And now the world has one more quarterback. Bravo brother.”

Now we’re really thirsty for Season 4!
