With a barrage of cliffhangers ending season 4 of “The Vampire Diaries,” fans of the CW hit are counting down the days until the show’s October 3 premiere.

To make the wait go by a little more quickly, the show has just unleashed a promo with a first look at the new season, Entertainment Weekly reports.

While it doesn’t show any of the core characters in college, which will be a major focal point of season five, the teaser is not short on jaw-dropping moments.

For one, it picks up with the major (spoiler!) reveals that Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) has a doppelganger of his own and the villainous Katherine (Nina Dobrev) now has to deal with being human.

There’s also a fight, an “I love you” moment and a car crash, and that’s only in 30 seconds!
