Christmas has come early, fang fans! The CW has released a fresh batch of photos from The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 7, and they’re the perfect mix of festive and suspenseful.
This year’s installment, ominously titled “The Next Time I Hurt Somebody, It Could Be You,” features the Mystic Falls gang gathered round the table for what should be one last pleasant meal together before they part ways to deal with Cade and the sirens. Unfortunately, despite the quintessential Yuletide scene — mistletoe, beautifully wrapped gifts nestled under the tree, stockings hung by the chimney with care, and shiny, twinkling lights strewn throughout the Salvatore boarding house — their celebration is a far cry from being merry and bright, especially when a still-very-much-alive Damon Salvatore and his wicked puppeteer, Sybil, show up unexpectedly to shake things up in their own special way. (Let’s just say they aren’t there to break bread.)
Care for a look? Scroll down for a glimpse at all the upcoming tension, adorable holiday attire (Josie and Lizzie’s green and red party dresses are the very definition of cuteness overload), and Caroline’s exquisite decorating skills!
