A good bromance is hard to find, right Damon (Ian Somerhalder)?

Now that Alaric (Matt Davis) is officially out of commission — in more ways than one — it’s time for the eldest Salvatore brother to move on to livelier pastures, so to speak.

But if we know anything about Damon, it’s that he’s not the easiest smoldering vamp to get along with, and he’s not going to drink his aged bourbon with just anyone.

So, let’s weigh the potential options and make an educated drinking decision:

Matt (Zach Roerig): He spends all his time scrounging for tips at the Mystic Grill, anyway, and he’s got to keep up his strength for Elena’s feedings. Bourbon is good for the blood, right?

Rebekah (Claire Holt): She’s been rejected by Matt, and Damon’s been rejected by Elena (Nina Dobrev). So, maybe two rejects make a right?

Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen): They’ll both need an excuse to get out of the house when Stelena starts getting their loud vampire sex on. 

Tyler (Michael Trevino): They both look great shirtless, so if they run out of things to talk about they can start taking body shots. We’d watch that.

Klaus (Joseph Morgan): Last week we saw these two team up against Connor Jordan (Todd Williams) the vampire hunter — if they can (almost) kill him, then we’re sure they can destroy a bottle in no time. 

Now that the glasses are lined up, who’s getting a strong pour to stand by Damon’s drinking side?
