First off, can I just say how AWESOME it is that Ian and Nina were kinda singled out, but together with their wins for choice sci-fi actor/actress. Aww. Okay, onto the video now. So watching this.
- Definitely looks like the vervain necklace we're already familiar with per the opening shot of Damon putting the necklace on Elena (and allow me a moment of SQUEE!) is his birthday gift to her.
- Stefan is definitely still ripping.
- Tyler is smiling.
- Bonnie is still doing her raising-her-chin/deep-breath/either I'm annoyed with Damon and/or am about to do a magic spell.
- Damon is naked.
- Stefan is being all 'come and get some' bad-assery.
- Damon and Elena are walking through her birthday party arm-in-arm like they are Prom king and queen.
Oh, lordy, I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait. *Deep breath*
Two shippy-related things I noticed.
1. The video began and ended with footage of Damon and Elena.
2. One of the things that irked me because the show is supposed to be about a TRIANGLE was how after the commercial's footage would end, we'd get the promo shot of the three of them, and then it would cut to Stefan and Elena only. Always made me grr. I noticed that the season 1/2 recap reel from the CW didn't have that cut to S/E. And in this again, no cut to S/E. I'm cautiously optimistic about this. :)
AND OVERALL FILLED WITH SQUEE BECAUSE MY SHOW IS COMING BACK SOON! SQUEE!
