"The Vampire Diaries" is taking some of its characters to college, and on Tuesday, Sept. 10, the CW released promotional photos from episode 1 "I Know What You Did Last Summer," highlighting just that.
When "The Vampire Diaries" season 5 begins, summer has passed, and Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Caroline (Candice Accola) are off to Whitmore College. In fact, a couple of the photos in the slideshow show just that—and Bonnie (Kat Graham), who was a ghost as season 4 ended, is with them in one. (However, she's not in the others.) When season 5 begins, she's still a ghost—and can only communicate with Jeremy," as Graham told us this summer at Comic-Con. As season 4 ended, she also made Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen) promise not to tell anyone else she died, so we have a feeling those smiles on Elena and Caroline's faces are going to disappear when they find out what happened to their best friend.
The rest of the photos show what could be Elena and Caroline heading to a college party, Bonnie looking over Jeremy's shoulder as he looks at his phone, and Elena with Jeremy. Oh, and yes, Elena still has the pink in her hair. All in all, these are generally happy images, but how long will that happiness last?
"The Vampire Diaries" season 5 will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW. What do you think of the premiere "I Know What You Did Last Summer" images?
