OMG! OMG! OMG!
WHAT. WHAT. WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS PICTURE???
Fans, friends … we're getting a little nervous. This season of The Vampire Diaries has been STUPENDOUS thus far, but we have a feeling that we're headed into territory that could have us riddled in agony for WEEKS!
For starters, all we keep hearing around the rumor mill is that something "explosive" is about to happen on the show. We've heard whispers of the next two episodes being crucial and chaotic, with the balance shifting forever in the world of Mystic Falls.
Okay, fine. We were still okay. Sure, they might do something drastic, but they would never do anything to hurt our beloved Ian Somerhalder.
OR WOULD THEY?!
WOULD YOU JUST LOOK AT THIS POSTER! Newly released, this shot is to tease the back end of our favorite vampy tale … and we can't say we're too pleased at the imagery. Why, OH why is there a noose around Smolderhalder's neck? Is something happening to Damon? Is he being killed off the show? Ten bucks says it'll be because of ELENA! GAWD! NO! WE CAN'T DEAL!
You know what? We don't know why this poster is the way it is, but we're choosing to think positively.
Yeah, maybe Damon is getting in touch with his s&m side! Maybe, someone is just prepping for that 50 Shades Of Grey movie we all want him to star in. Yeah, that's it. Think beautiful, sensual, sexy bondage thoughts. No ones dying. Techincally, he's already dead — so what does it matter!
Also, there's a "he's also pretty hung" joke to be made here, but we're still too on edge to make it.
