'Vampire Diaries' Season 5 Promo: Spot The Doppelgangers

Nina DobrevIf there's one thing a girl can count on from bad-boy bloodsucker Damon Salvatore, it's a well-timed, pithy quip that completely sums up her feelings on, well, everything. And, wow, does he deliver in an extended promo for the season five premiere of "The Vampire Diaries" when he deadpans, "If I have to hear the word 'doppelganger' one more time, I'm going to have to learn how to spell it."

Yes. This. (Though, after four years covering The CW series, that's one spelling we've finally mastered.) Regardless, while "The Vampire Diaries" is known for its dizzying plot twists, all these lookalikes running around may prove just too much for us to follow without the aid of a flowchart. Case in point: In the clip below we see Elena (along with bestie Caroline) embracing college co-ed life while her doppelganger soaks in boyfriend Damon's bathtub, inches away from locking lips with ex-boyfriend Stefan's doppelganger Silas. Follow?

Maybe you should just watch for yourself...

"The Vampire Diaries" season-five premiere, "I Know What You Did Last Summer," airs Thursday, October 3 on The CW.
