Damon Salvatore is in a really bad mood.

On last week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was just beginning his downward descent thanks to being rejected by Elena (Nina Dobrev) and egged on by Enzo (Michael Malarkey). Now, it seems, he's about to go on a bender reminiscent of his "sadistic, psychotic" former self.

"I happen to like my old sadistic self, Stefan," Damon tells his brother (Paul Wesley) in our exclusive clip below. "So get another hobby, brother, because I'm not in the mood to be saved."

Watch the rest of the brothers' contentious conversation:
