The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Premiere to Be Titled...

at . Comments

Julie Plec has come out and revealed the title of the upcoming Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere... and it has a decidedly Jennifer Love Hewitt-ish ring to it.

The October 3rd opener will be called "I Know What You Did Last Summer."

Based on what producer Caroline Dries told us at Comic-Con, the title makes sense.

The Season 5 premiere will feature the show's first-ever time jump, as we skip ahead three months from the dramatic events that concluded Season 4.

Elena and Damon are together and happy. Caroline is preparing for college. Jeremy is alive and able to communicate with Bonnie. And Stefan... okay, he's still at the bottom of that quarry.

What else do we know about The Vampire Diaries Season 5?

  • We'll actually see The Other Side.
  • We'll meet one of Stefan's vengeful ex-girlfriends.
  • Three new characters will debut: a doctor with knowledge about Damon's past; a mysterious Russian named Nadia; and an upperclassman named Jesse, to be played by Kendrick Sampson.
  • Despite her casting on The Originals, Claire Holt will portray Rebekah on the premiere.

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
