The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Poster: Rippling and Roaring

at . Comments

The CW has released the first official poster for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 and, simply put, it's totally awesome.

The image, first posted by TV Guide, depicts both Elena and Katherine. It also gives us a look at a muscle-bound Paul Wesley as Silas, with what we can only presume is an image of Stefan reflected in the water.

There's Ian Somerhalder in a mostly transparent top... a returning Tyler standing near Caroline... Bonnie in the background with Jeremy kneeling in front of his ghostly girlfriend … and Matt, half shirtless, seemingly caught between two worlds.

Stare for as long as you'd like and prepare for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 premiere on October 3.

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]
