Comic-Con: The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Trailer “Sizzle Reel”


As part of the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, The Vampire Diaries realeased a “Season 5 Trailer” in preparation for season 5, which starts Thursday, October 10th, 2013.


This “Sizzle Reel” video is 5 minutes short and uses scenes to summarize the last four years of The Vampire Diaries and propel us forward to the beginning of season 5. The first half starts with Elena writing in her diary. Then it shows scenes of their relationship as it progressed through season 4 to the scene where Stefan tells Elena that he can’t do it anymore.


Then it switches to Damon and Elena, starting with Damon introducing himself to her, rescuing her after the car crash, and from the sunlight on the bridge, telling her he’s not the good guy, that he takes and does what he wants. Then the sire bond, and finally the scene where Elena chooses Damon over Stefan. Then Elena says, “I just have a feeling that something bad is about to happen.”


With that we transition to the 3rd part of the video, where we see a summary about Silas, and then the “doppelganger” and the revelation that Stefan is Silas’ “shadow self,” after which Stefan is staked, locked in the safe, and dumped in the water. And with that we jump forward, past summer, to Fall.


Silas, as Stefan, tells a crowd that over the summer he’s consumed an immeasurable amount of blood, and has gotten stronger every day. Then he started wondering what the limits of his power were, and how many people could he influence. A whole town square? Then there’s a scream. Is it Bonnie?
