Can Damon and Bonnie trust Kat to lead them out of 1994?
In our exclusive interview with Chris Wood, the actor didn't give much away, except to say his two trapped frenemies have little choice but to try.
We'll see what steps this unexpected trio take toward present day Mystic Falls on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5 tomorrow night, but The CW has released a new clip that makes it clear Damon finally has some hope.
But will it be misguided hope?
Damone plans on going home and spending time very quality time with Elena... who, of course, has gone ahead and had her romantic memories of her presumed-dead boyfriend wiped clean.
She's even turned down the chance to have them resurrected again.
So this could be an awkward reunion if it ever happens. Though let's be honest: it is going to happen. It's just a matter of when and how.
