Vampire Diaries Video: Damon and Stefan Stumble Upon a Merry Massacre

Warning: If you ever plan on attending SantaCon, you might not want to watch this video.

TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek of Thursday’s Vampire Diaries fall finale (The CW, 8/7c) begins innocently enough, with Damon telling Stefan about his Christmas present during a brotherly stroll down a quiet street. To be fair, though, the present in question is Julian’s decapitated — and presumably gift-wrapped — head under the tree at Chez Salvatore, so I’m using a pretty loose definition of “innocently” here.

Things take an even more twisted turn when Damon runs out of booze and ducks into the nearest pub for a refill. Without giving too much away, I’ll just say there’s a festive surprise waiting for the Salvatores upon their arrival — and you might never look at the big man in red the same way again.

Hit PLAY on the preview clip above to figure out what the heck I’m talking about, then drop a comment below: What do you hope to see in TVD‘s Christmas episode?
