As also previously reported, the two CW dramas will crossover at some point this spring... and we've got your first look at two old acquaintances sharing a round of bourbon together again.

The network unveiled a new promo on Twitter this evening gave us a look at what fans can expect on the Fridays to come over the next several weeks, including Stefan sitting down at a bar in The Big Easy.

Right alongside him? Klaus.

“The crossover was born out Stefan needing a place to escape,” producer Julie Plec recently teased to TVLine. “He’s on the run. He needs to go somewhere where magic can’t find him, and we realized he can go to New Orleans where there’s that bar where magic doesn’t work."

As for the topic of their conversation?

“They actually have a surprisingly civil and honest conversation about love - what it means and the sacrifices that you have to make in the name of it,” Plec previewed.

We're so all in for this.

How about you?

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.

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.
