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

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
