The Vampire Diaries Spoilers: Bloody Hell?

at .

Deep breath, Vampire Diaries Fanatics.

Damon Salvatore is alive and well. Or maybe he's just alive.

Ian Somerhalder has Tweeted our first look at the character on The Vampire Diaries Season 6, posting a photo online of himself on set, his face full of blood.

What might this mean for the status of Damon (and Bonnie) when we meet back up with them in the fall?

Julie Plec has said the season will kick off with more "questions than answers" about the duo, though she did hint they aren't exactly riding a "roller coaster of fun" on The Other Other Side.

At Comic-Con, meanwhile, SomerhalderĀ joked with us that Damon and Bonnie will be busy trying to make babies. Or at least we assume he was joking.

What do you think this photo of Somerhalder means? Are you glad he and Bonnie will be sticking around, in some capacity? Or do you wish the show had actually taken the drastic step of killing them off?

Sound off below and prepare for The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 1 (titled "I'll Remember) to air on October 2 at 8/7c.
