Secrets won't just come out on this week's all-new episode of The Vampire Diaries.

Clothes will come off.

At least that appears to be the case based on the photos below, all of which are courtesy of "Blood Brothers." Airing this Thursday night, the installment will take viewers back to 1864.

We'll learn the secret that's been hanging over this series since it premiered: How did Damon and Stefan get turned into vampires? Also on our minds, but less pressing: How did Damon get those tricep muscles?!?

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

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
