New Promo Pic for The Vampire Diaries Reveals Pair of Mysteries

at . Comments

The CW has released a new promotional photo for The Vampire Diaries.

In it, the character of Elena is sandwiched between the Salvatore brothers, both of whom are vampires, yet each of whom possess very different motivations when the series opens.

Viewers will also notice a pair of interesting items in the picture below: a black crow and large rings on the finger of Stefan and Damon Salvatore. Check them out now:

What do these items signify? We've seen the pilot episode. Follow this article's jump for a pair of Vampire Diaries spoilers...

The crow first appears when a couple is killed in the show's opening scene; it's then spotted again at the cemetery where Elena is writing in her journal.

Finally, the crow flies into Stefan's room seconds before he turns around to see Damon (for the first time in 15 years). The bird appears to be some sort of stand-in for, or symbol of, the evil Salvatore siblings.

The rings, meanwhile, serve a valuable purpose: they enable the vampires to survive in the daytime.

The Vampire Diaries premiere on September 10. Tune in. You won't be disappointed.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
