The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Poster: Battle Lines are Drawn!

Hot damn! Just when we think the Vampire Diaries stars can’t ever outdo themselves in terms of attractiveness, they amp the ante and get dark and dangerous with their poses. Judging by the new TVD Season 5 promotional poster posted first by TV Guide, the supernatural situation in Mystic Falls is going to wilder than ever before.

Feast your eyes on the most sizzling cast photo yet!

In the sensual new pic for the popular series, our beloved Mystic Falls residents are hanging out in their neck of the woods (literally) while sporting the latest in Gothic attire. The menacing scene features burned and barren trees and flaming torches dug deep into the ground. The tagline reads: “Blood lines are torched. Battle lines are drawn.”

On one side, we spy Stefan (Paul Wesley), Damon (Ian Somerhalder), and doppelgangers Katherine and Elena (Nina Dobrev). On the opposite side, we see Bonnie (Kat Graham), Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), Caroline (Candice Accola), and Tyler (Michael Trevino).  Interestingly enough, in the middle of the all mayhem, is our favorite Muggle Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig). He is kneeling on the ground, his shirt is open, and he’s bravely looking onward into the camera while chaos erupts around him. Will he be serving as a mediator between his friends? Whether or not he is, he is dead center which means he’s going to play a major role this season!

Here are more interesting details we observed: 1. a very muscular Stefan (cough*Silas*cough) is reaching into a pit of fire while his reflection stares back at him from the lake’s surface (probably to alert us that Stefan is still drowning repeatedly while Silas masquerades around town as him), 2. Damon’s man-nips are peeking through his mesh shirt, 3. a newly human Katherine — all dressed in black — is keeping to herself in the background, 4. Elena is wearing a see-through floor-length red skirt that shows off her perfect curves and she’s throwing a come-hither look over her shoulder which seems to suggest that the college undergraduate is ready to have some fun, 5. Jeremy is rooted right next to his ghost love Bonnie who is looking extra ethereal as a black veil whips behinds her, 6. hybrid hottie Tyler is back in action now that Klaus has moved to New Orleans, 7. unlike Elena who has her back to us and is playing coy, Caroline is confidently facing her audience full-on as though she has nothing to hide, and 8. all the fellas are in submissive poses.

Basically, the poster is pulsating with clues and alluring imagery and we can’t wait to see what wicked adventures Vampire Diaries Season 5 has in store for us!
