Damon's (Ian Somerhalder) redemption tour is in full swing on The Vampire Diaries.

In this exclusive sneak peek, Damon and Alaric (Matt Davis) are back on the road working a mission together, but things just aren't the same. Alaric is still (reasonably) pissed at Damon for dipping out for three years, and the idea of saving Stefan (Paul Wesley) isn't exactly high on the new father's priority list.

However, Damon is Damon, which means he knows exactly how to weasel his way back into his former best bud's heart. But is it too little too late? Watch the clip above to find out!

The Vampire Diaries airs Fridays at 8/7c on The CW.
