The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Poster: Rippling and Roaring

by 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.

i really can't wait...............oct3 countdown loading.......................


I love it. Looks fantastic. Although Elena's outfit puzzles me a bit.




.........I SEE DEAD PEOPLE! Seriously though, its not as bad as last years poster.


Actually, Matt died last season. Damon snapped his neck to get Elena to turn her humanity back on, BUT he had Jeremy's ring on so he came back to life.


Poor Matt, he's the only one who hasn't died...

The poster looks more than great. It is over the top. My sudden guess with all this big story upcoming for Matt could he be a Salvatore bastard? Melinda Clark played a pretty "slutty" mom. he is blond and the salvatore line is a witch line as well so he could have that power within himself. He could save Bonnie. . .

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.


I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.
