More sexy posters with mysterious phrases from The Vampire Diaries. The latest February Sweeps promo shows Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) looking intensely at the camera along with the tagline “Humanity was the only thing she hadn’t lost.”

Elena has lost a lot — her family, her sanity (temporarily), the Miss Mystic Falls pageant — but is her humanity really the next thing to go? Perhaps they’re referring to her new bloodsucker status... or maybe it’s not quite so literal.

Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) seemed to think Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) was the new vampire’s last tie to her old self, telling Damon that if Elena’s little brother were dead, she’d have no reason to become human again.

Someone is leaving Mystic Falls — and we can see how losing Jer would send Elena over the edge.  

Then again, that’s not the lil’ Gilbert who’s lurking behind her...
