The Vampire Diaries Photos from "Hello Brother"

Whether or not Nina Dobrev comes back to Mystic Falls, it doesn't seem likely Elena Gilbert is in for a happy ending with Damon Salvatore.

Damon calls himself the devil, but he's more like evil incarnate if the photos from The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 1 are any indication.

There is nothing attractive about what happens to the very Elenaesque ladies in these photos. We've seen the fate of one in the trailer, and the fate of the other can be found in the photos if you look hard enough. It's brutal.

Prepare for the end, for it is nigh. Can it end in any other way than the death of one Damon Salvatore? What are your thoughts, TVD Fanatics? Share your thoughts and watch The Vampire Diaries online to relive the good ol' days until the premiere on October 21.

If you watched the trailer for this episode, then you already know this young lady's fate. It's not pretty.

Looks like Stefan was too late to stop the dynamic duo once again. It must be frustrating.

I can only hope Nina Dobrev wants to come back so Damon's story can end with his long lost love putting a stake into his chest after spitting in his face.

THIS is what being nice, concerned citizens gets you on the back roads of the middle of nowhere.

If the idea was to make Damon into a monster again, it has worked. He's no longer the romantic hero. Delena 4Never
