'The Vampire Diaries' Season 7 Promo Is Seriously Torturing Us

Mystic Falls is in serious trouble.

The first official promo for "The Vampire Diaries" season 7 is here, and it's got a little something for everyone: family drama, torture, hookups, explosions and a whole lot of blood. This is still "The Vampire Diaries," after all.

The flash forward at the end of the season 6 finale gave us a glimpse into Mystic Falls' dark future -- and now we finally know how the formerly sleepy town turned into a hotbed for crime and violence. We can thank Mama Salvatore and her Heretics for that mess.

The vampire-witch hybrids will be causing a lot of trouble for the Mystic Falls gang, especially Caroline. At one point in the promo, it looks like our Care Bare is yet again being tortured at the hands of a baddie. (Hasn't Caroline been through enough these past few seasons?!)

Major drama ensues from one of Stefan's poor life choices -- he's been doing that a lot these days, tbh -- when he strikes a deal with his "lunatic" of a mom Lily.

"We don't mess with them, they don't mess with us," Stefan tells Damon. But, as we know, things are never that easy.

Caroline, the voice of reason and reigning queen of our hearts, tries to knock some sense into him. "Are we making a huge mistake handing over our town to a bunch of supernatural terrorists?" she asks Stefan. "Yeah, probably," he says.

Well, at least he knows when he's making a terrible, horrible mistake! If only he would have done that last season and reciprocated Caroline's feelings when she poured her heart out to him in the woods. Don't think we've forgotten, Stefan.

But Steroline fans won't have too much to cry about this season. Judging from the promo, it looks like things are getting steamy between our two favorite vamps.
