Elena and Damon Get Closer and Jeremy Wields a Crossbow in Tonight’s Episode of “The Vampire Diaries” (Photos)

Are you excited for the return of “The Vampire Diaries” tonight? We know we are and these new stills made us even more excited.

The photos show Elena and Damon confronting Klaus at the Mystic Grill and it looks like Elena and Damon might be getting closer. Also, it looks like Tyler is making friends with Jeremy. How hot does Jeremy (Steven R McQueen) look with that crossbow?

In tonight’s mid-season premiere entitled “The New Deal,” Stefan (Paul Wesley) has hidden the coffins containing the bodies of Klaus’ (Joseph Morgan) family, and Klaus quickly turns to violence to convince Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) that no one will be safe until he finds Stefan and gets his family back.

Tyler (Michael Trevino) continues to make the most of his new abilities as a hybrid, but he has to face the disturbing consequences of his actions as well. After a terrifying incident, Elena and Alaric (Matt Davis) grow increasingly concerned about Jeremy’s (Steven R. McQueen) attitude and, ultimately, his safety. Alaric meets the beautiful Dr. Fell (guest star Torrey Devitto, “Pretty Little Liars”), who is intrigued with his amazing ability to heal. While trying to strike a deal with Klaus, Elena delivers news that truly shocks him.

Make sure to tune in tonight at 8pm on the CW to see all the drama!
