Were you too busy Googling the song in the promo video for Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 19, “Heart of Darkness” to take in what was actually going on? Well, then, you missed shirtless Damon (Ian Somerhalder). For shame. But don’t worry, we managed to make it through all 30 seconds of the video (after rewinding that part a few times, of course), and we have all the important details for you. Oh, and that song? It’s Nik Ammar’s “Turn It Back.”
0:01 Jeremy asks, “You traveled halfway across the country to talk to a dead vampire?”
Elena: Uh, and to see you, of course. I’ve totally missed you, little bro!
0:02 Damon wins first place in the grammar rodeo by using the word “redundant”
You would think Jeremy would be smarter after leaving the ramshackle Mystic Falls High School, where teachers are also murders and classes are held once every 10 episodes.

Yeah, do you have feelings for Damon?

It certainly looks like some witchy woo is going down. Esther, is that you?
