Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder
What does The Vampire Diaries' Damon Salvatore think of the new, emotionless Elena? He's a bit conflicted.
"I really want her to be my hot sexy vampire girlfriend, but I really don't want her killing everybody," Ian Somerhalder says in this week's Vampire Diaries Bite.
The Vampire Diaries Exclusive Clip: Damon confronts Klaus
After a two-week hiatus, the CW show returns on Thurs (8/7c) and from the looks of it, Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) — whose emotions were shut off by Damon when she was overly distraught by her brother's death -- is going to be one reckless and carefree woman.

"She's going to be kicking the boys' asses a lot, I mean I literally get my ass kicked by Elena every episode now," Somerhalder says. "But it's super cool to see this super empowered woman where the boys aren't scared she's going to walk out the door and get killed because she's a badass chick who can hold her own."
But how might Damon end up pushing Elena back into the arms of his brother, Stefan (Paul Wesley)? And what does Somerhalder say about filming the prom episode?
When The Vampire Diaries returns on Thursday (8/7c, CW), Damon Salvatore (Ian Salvatore) will be his usual witty self as he tries to persuade Klaus (Joseph Morgan) to help him.
The Vampire Diaries' Elena Gilbert has a new attitude and a new hairstyle to go along with it.
The Vampire Diaries' Julie Plec: We don't have plans to bring Tyler back (for now)
In the upcoming episode "Because the Night," Damon (Ian Somerhalder) takes Elena (Nina Dobrev) on an adventure to New York City in an effort to get her mind off of recent events (RIP, Jeremy!). Judging from our exclusive first look from the episode, it appears that Elena has gotten a new look on her trip by adding some red streaks and stylish new waves to her tresses.

Get ready for vampire Elena Gilbert 2.0.
Just as The Vampire Diaries' Elena (Nina Dobrev) was getting used to the idea of being a vampire, she learned there could be a cure. But with that quest leading to the death of her brother Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) forcing Elena to shut off her emotions so she could deal, Elena has now become a force to be reckoned with.
"The second half [of the season] is about Elena now being a vampire with all the true definitions of the word: She's driven by a desire to feed and she doesn't care who she hurts along the way," executive producer Julie Plec tells TVGuide.com. "She's certainly not going to be pleased about who's trying to stop her from being the way she wants to be. So now it's like what trouble does she get herself into, what does everyone else try to do to help her or to stop her or to defeat her or to give up on her."
Someone is dying on this week's Vampire Diaries and when we last saw Damon he was in quite the precarious situation. But just how worried should we be?
On Thursday's episode, Elena, Stefan and Rebekah will try to hunt down the cure before Shane gets to it with the help of Bonnie and Jeremy. Damon, meanwhile, is nowhere to be found since he's been kidnapped and tied up by new vampire hunter Vaughn.
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
The Vampire Diaries gang is embarking on a journey that could forever change their future.
With Kol dead and Jeremy's mark (aka map) fully grown, Professor Shane can now lead Damon, Elena, Stefan, Rebekah, Bonnie and Jeremy to a remote location that holds the cure to vampirism. Once faced with the idea of becoming human again, everyone begins to think of what they want — or don't want — for their future.
The Vampire Diaries: Who's going to die?
Will the search for the cure on The Vampire Diaries unite Elena with her former boyfriend Stefan and arch-nemesis Rebekah? And is a certain doppelganger making her return?
The CW has released two new promo posters that are not only typically hot and sexy, but also hold little hints as to what's to come.
The Vampire Diaries' Graham: Bonnie and Kol's run-in is one of her most intense scenes yet
Kat Graham and Nathaniel Buzolic
The Vampire Diaries' Elena (Nina Dobrev) has decided the only way to un-compel Damon (Ian Somerhalder) from wanting to kill Jeremy (Steven McQueen) is to kill Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic). (Incidentally, he's also standing in their way of the cure.) But when the task falls on Bonnie (Kat Graham), she's left in a dangerous situation.
"This is the first scene that Bonnie and Kol have had together and it's honestly one of the most intense scenes I've had with one other person since I don't know when," Graham tells us in this week's Vampire Diaries Bite.
Since his introduction in Season 2, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has been very much positioned as a villain in The Vampire Diaries — at least in the eyes of the Mystic Falls gang. The audience, on the other hand, has always found the Original so charming that we're usually willing to forgive him for whatever his evil doings (though his murder of Mayor Lockwood was a true test of any such sympathies).
He's gotten so empathetic that even...
Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley
Vampires, hybrids, witches, and werewolves. It's hard to keep track of all of The Vampire Diaries species. And things only get more confusing when you throw in all the other characters, historical events, mythology and supernatural objects.
Based on a series of books, the show stars Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert as a former high school cheerleader whose world was turned upside when her parents died. Soon after she met the mysterious and handsome Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and his brother Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) and before she knew it was thrown into the world of the Mystic Falls supernatural. (And little did she know at the time, she too had some "special" characteristics.)
Now in its fourth season, The Vampire Diaries has introduced viewers to Elena, Stefan and Damon's expanding group of allies and enemies and has opened up the tomb, so to speak, on the mythology that lies among them. In anticipation of the CW show's return from its winter hiatus (woo hoo!), we decided to offer a little extra help in keeping everything straight. Below, we break down every aspect of the show, from A to Z.
