At today's Comic-Con panel discussion, key cast members and Julie Plec teased a number of upcoming developments (full recap coming soon!), but the hour-long event kicked off with a sizzle reel that featured our very first look at The Vampire Diaries Season 5.

And it's clear Paul Wesley is having a blast as Silas.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
