Craving a delicious treat, fang fans? Well, you’re in luck, because the CW just posted a brand new clip from this week’s (October 25, 2012) episode, “The Rager,” and it has plenty of Salvatore action to go around!
The latest sneak peek for The Vampire Diaries Season 4, Episode 3 shows Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) acting civil towards each other…or so it initially seems. Stefan is planning on taking Elena (Nina Dobrev) on a carefree motorcycle ride to get her mind off of slayers, blood, and vomit, and Damon’s planning on snacking on the vicious new hunter in town, Connor Jordan (Todd Williams).
Damon: “Good day for a mid-life crisis. 164 years? I’d say you’re due.”
Stefan: “Elena’s transition into a vampire has been a little depressing. I want to help her have some fun.”
Damon: “Oh. Those who can’t do, teach.”
Stefan: “Well, I see that we’re still fighting. Got it. Where are you going?”
Damon: “That hunter jacked Tyler Lockwood of his werewolf venom last night so he’s basically got vampire poison in a bottle. And I’m going to find him. And I’m going to eat him.”
Stefan: “I’ll go with you.”
Damon: “I don’t want your help. I just want to kill this guy and get the hell out of here. Isn’t that the deal? Whoever Elena doesn’t choose, leaves?”
Stefan: “That was before she turned.”
Damon: “And I stayed to help. If I take you punching me as the first clue, I’m not wanted here anymore.”
Stefan: “Listen, you blood-shared with my girlfriend and I punched you in the face. You deserved it. Why don’t you stop being dramatic?”
Damon: “No, brother, dramatic will be leaving before I kill this hunter.”
Oh, oh, oh…Isn’t it just like Damon Salvatore to pull a Taylor Swift and get the last word in? Then again, that’s what we adore about him. And even though we agree with Stefan, who seems irritated by his brother’s shenanigans and reckless behavior, we can’t wait to witness a potential showdown between Connor and Damon (who plans on teaming up with Klaus in the process). It sounds like there’s some quality supernatural mayhem brewing in Mystic Falls, for sure!
So tell us, gentle viewers: Do you think Damon skipping town will help anyone at this point? Or does absence make the heart (Elena’s heart specifically) grow fonder?
