It doesn’t take much more than a shirtless Damon to pique our interest, and the latest promo for The Vampire Diaries does all that and much more. The new clip gives us an extended sneak peek at a scene from this week’s premiere episode, “The Birthday,” that’s sure to make any Delena fan’s heart palpitate. In the clip, Damon startles Elena by stepping out of the shower sans clothing. Of course, she manages to look away just long enough to talk about tracking down Stefan, but Damon’s not having it (or so it seems). Watch the promo, which also features some juicy dish from writer Julie Plec, and let us know if you’re ready for this season’s twists and turns.
