Remember bad boy Damon Salvatore? He's back and boozier than ever in Thursday night's Vampire Diaries season 7 premiere.
The episode opens with Damon (Ian Somerhalder), whose soulmate Elena (Nina Dobrev) is asleep in a tomb for the next 60 or so years, partying in Amsterdam with Alaric (Matthew Davis), whose fiancé and unborn twins were slaughtered on their wedding day.
Though Damon is missing Elena, he's focused on getting Alaric through his tragedy – with some liquid courage.

With her best friend entombed until the natural death of her other best friend, her mom dead from cancer and her hometown overrun by vampire/witch hybrids, Caroline Forbes isn't exactly her sunny self when The Vampire Diaries returns.
"Caroline is is trying to make sense of what is happening in Mystic Falls," star Candice King tells PEOPLE of the season 7 premiere. "She's dealing with the separation from Elena (Nina Dobrev), knowing that she will be gone for a while. She's still mourning the death of her mother, and she's also starting to mourn the death of Mystic Falls. In the season opener, we get to see how Mystic Falls became the desolate shell of what it was that we saw at the end of season 6 when Damon (Ian Somerhalder) was standing on the clock tower."
While Caroline knows she'll see fellow bloodsucker Elena in 60 or so years ("She's got eternal life on her side!"), King, 28, says Bonnie (Kat Graham) is grieving more.

This red-hot couple just made things official.
Nina Dobrev and Austin Stowell walked their first carpet together Sunday at the premiere of his movie Bridge of Spies at New York's Lincoln Center, looking sleek and chic in coordinating black ensembles and a bold red lip for the Vampire Diaries vet.
Dobrev, 26, and Stowell, 30, were first linked in June, when they got cozy during a comedy show in Hollywood. They jetted off to Saint-Tropez for a PDA-filled vacation the next month, and Stowell was Dobrev's date at her former costar Kayla Ewell's September wedding.

Vampire Diaries fans may be in for the happy ending they were hoping for.
Though Nina Dobrev officially left the show at the end of last season, the actress may not have spent her last day filming The CW series.
"We would have loved Nina to stay," CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters at a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "She did a great job for the six years she was on the show. She is welcome back any time she wants to come back."
