'Vampire Diaries': A Photo Sneak Peek At Next Thursday's Episode, 'A Few Good Men'

I'd bet a few hours in an ancient vampire vault that I'm not the only one feeling totally teased by the first season of "The Vampire Diaries." It seems right as things are getting bloody good, the series invariably goes on another one of its month-long hiatuses. Thankfully, we only have 10 more days to endure until Elena (Nina Dobrev), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) return to our bright, shining TV boxes in an episode entitled "A Few Good Men" (Tom Cruise sold separately).

The episode centers around the Mystic Falls Bachelor Raffle of which Damon is apparently the prized thoroughbred. "He's total cougar bait," Caroline observes in a promo for the March 25 episode. "A room full of women clamoring to win a date with me? Sounds tasty," Damon teases.

To get you ready for the long-awaited return of our favorite Thursday night vampire fest, we got our hands on six stills from the upcoming episode, conveniently captioned for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

"Guys, we should totally practice our smizing. Ready? 1, 2, 3, Smize!" (note Damon's is bachelor #5 — but he's still #1 in our hearts!)

"I don't care, Elena. I'm keeping this lipgloss on. Cougars dig moisturized lips."

"Now, how do you get that volume? Is it gel or pomade?"

"I survived over a century under that damn church, and all I got was this ugly plaid coat!" (in case you're wondering, the actor who plays the escaped tomb vamp is Sterling Sulieman)

"The raffle ticket didn't include a smooch, but for you Jenna, I'll make an exception."

"Should we tell Damon his fly is down? No? OK!"

Are you excited about the return on "Vampire Diaries"?
