Oh no! What’s going to happen to Damon now that he has been vervained and imprisoned by the positively maniacal Dr. Wes Maxfield? Well, if the opening to The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 9 preview trailer is any indication, our beloved blue-eyed bloodsucker is in for a world of pain. (Last time we saw the poor guy, he was clawing at the walls of a musty old cell so, surely, his suffering must have increased tenfold since then!)
“What are you going to do to me?” Damon (Ian Somerhalder) weakly asks the sadistic scientist.
Dr. Wes (Rick Cosnett) eerily replies, “I’m ready to take my work to the next level.” He pulls out a rather large needle and taps it. Later on, we see him punching Damon and casually informing him that it’s all “for the advancement of science.” GULP.
Meanwhile, Elena (Nina Dobrev), worried about her boyfriend and his sudden disappearance from campus, reaches out to Aaron (Shaun Sipos) to discuss his creepy professor. “Wes is involved in something bigger than anyone even realizes,” she tells to her college pal, who seems perplexed and troubled over his guardian’s shady dealings. Will Elena and Aaron join forces and pool resources to track down Wes and get more information on Whitmore’s secret vampire-hating society? We’ll find out soon enough!
Watch the extended promo for The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 9: “The Cell” to learn more about Dr. Wes’s disturbing plans for Damon Salvatore.
