Want a major spoiler about tonight's episode of The Vampire Diaries? Ian Somerhalder reveals to us, "Damon wins the Miss Mystic Falls pageant, so he gets his tiara!" His talent? "He can put his lipstick on with his toes perfectly. No mirror, nothing," the star says.
OK, so obviously Damon isn't going to win the annual pageant, but he is going to get something even better than a tiara: Another dance with Elena (Nina Dobrev), who is now single after breaking up with his brother Stefan (Paul Wesley)!
We caught up with Ian, Nina and Paul on the show's set while they were filming the sure-to-be epic episode and they teased dancing Delena, "steamy" moments and death! Plus, which character has become a danger to everyone else?
"It's a Miss Mystic Falls, a bunch of crazy stuff ensues around it," Ian teases. Nina adds, "It's a dark pageant. People are going to die." Hey, it's not a party in Mystic Falls unless there's a body count, right?!
Similar to season one's pageant episode, "My Brother's Keeper" will focus heavily on Damon and Elena. "There's some really cool mirrors images from the first one with Damon and Elena sort of remembering that time in their lives when they were there together," Ian explains. "It's a great thing for them and it's a good thing for the audience as well to see that and remember that." Alas, there won't be quite as much dancing this time around, with Ian saying there's only "a little bit" of Delena dancing.
One fella you won't be seeing getting all fancy in a tux? Stefan, who decides not to attend...at first. "I was really glad that I didn't go to Miss Mystic Falls," Paul tells us. "I'm too old for these things! I don't want to wear suits!" While he doesn't wear a suit (blasphemy, costume department!), we can tell you Stefan will be sporting a bit of blood in this episode and will end up at the event, thanks to Caroline (Candice Accola). And while Damon is busy with Elena, Stefan will be busy watching over the other Gilbert, Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), who will become a danger to himself and others at the event. Dun-dun-dun!
And yes, fans can expect a bit of "steamy" (Nina's description!) action by episode's end: "There is an incredible makeout scene at the end of the episode with Stefan and Damon," Ian jokes.
The Vampire Diaries airs tonight at 8 p.m. on the CW.
