The Vampire Diaries Teases Damon-Elena Romance

at . Comments

If next week's promo in all its dramatic, potentially torturous glory weren't exciting enough, wait until you see what potentially lies ahead in Mystic Falls, Virginia, a bit later this month.

On The Vampire Diaries' April 22 episode, Elena finds herself competing for the "Miss Mystic Falls" title. That alone would be worth seeing, but wait 'til you see who her date is.

The Founders' Day gala includes a traditional dance, where at the last second, none other than Damon Salvatore is recruited as her partner. Check out the sexy photo of the pair below.

You don't think Damon and Elena could ... would ... you know? Right?

Miss Mystic Falls Picture

Elena and Damon in April 22's "Miss Mystic Falls."

The episode synopsis reads as such: "At the Founder’s Day Gala, Elena and Caroline compete for the title of Miss Mystic Falls”against other girls from town, including Tina Fell (guest star Autumn Dial) and Amber Bradley (guest star Spencer Locke)."

Meanwhile, there are these developments: "Elena is happy to have Bonnie back in town, but Bonnie still has issues to work through. John Gilbert (guest star David Anders) attempts to intimidate Damon, but his plan doesn’t have the desired effect."

Finally, and perhaps most intriguingly, there's this teaser: "Damon discovers that Stefan may be hiding a dangerous secret that could impact everyone in town.”

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

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
