WATCH: Ian Somerhalder Naked on New ‘Vampire Diaries’ Trailer


A new “The Vampire Diaries” trailer teased a naked Ian Somerhalder, a.k.a. Damon Salvatore.
The teaser shows Damon mourning after he lost Elena Gilbert and having a drink with Alaric in Europe.

The short trailer shows Damon throw his wet towel at Alaric, leaving him totally naked. Alaric then tells him, “You know clothes would be nice.”

Alaric, played by Matt Davis, is also mourning after his pregnant fiancée was brutally killed on their wedding day, while Bonnie (Kat Graham) decides to keep track of both boys.

When Bonnie says she’s going to go ride a bike like a normal tourist, Damon “helpfully” tells her they don’t wear helmets there. “Keeps getting funnier,” she retorts.

The Hollywood Reporter released the video, while Ian shared it on his official Instagram account.

Executive producer Julie Plec previously warned that there would be some bitter relationship between Bonnie and Damon in the upcoming season.

In July, Plec told Fanbolt, “Now, they still have that but there’s this underlying resentment on both sides. For Damon, he’s like making jokes about like ‘Oh Bonnie you’d better chew that sandwich well, because I’d hate for you to choke and die! I don’t know the Heimlich Maneuver.'”

Damon’s love, Elena, has been put into spell at the end of season six. She will remain alive as long as her best friend Bonnie is alive. Elena was portrayed by Nina Dobrev.

Dobrev had earlier confirmed that she will not be coming back to “TVD“. She said: “That chapter has closed, sadly – bittersweet.”

“The Vampire Diaries” returns on Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. on CW.
