The Vampire Diaries season 7 debuts Thursday October 8 at 8/7c on The CW—so just a little over a month away now—and some stills from the season premiere have already made their way online!
The first episode of The Vampire Diaries season 7 is titled “Day One of Twenty-Two Thousand, Give or Take.” We’re excited to watch how Damon deals with the loss of Elena.
Speaking to TV Guide recently, Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon Salvatore, divulged that, “Damon doesn’t get depressed — he gets even or he gets drunk.”
So there’s that. And we wouldn’t exactly expect anything else from our dear Damon, would we? This is just how Damon is: When something is bothering him, he gets cold and distant, and we love him for it. Stefan is brooding enough for the both of them, and the fact that the two brothers are so different from each other and deal with heartache differently is part of what gives the show spice.
So, in short, we’re excited for the return of cold, drunk Damon and his sarcastic remarks. Nina Dobrev might’ve left the show, but we still have faith that The Vampire Diaries season 7 will kick ass!
