Vampire Diaries Episode Stills from "162 Candles"

at . Comments

Elena is having enough trouble these days with the fact that the guy she loves is a vampire. That would be enough to permanently damage any relationship.

But on Thursday's new episode, she meets a new obstacle: Lexi.

As Stefan explains to Elena in a clip from "162 Candles," Lexi is an ancient blood sucker and nothing more than a close friend. But it's only natural for Elena to grow jealous of someone that has known Stefan for over a century.

Get a look at Arielle Kebbel in this role below, along with other photos from this week's episode:

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.

Damon

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.

Damon
