Damon Tries to Save Stefan in The Vampire Diaries

Damon Tries to Save Stefan in The Vampire Diaries

When the second season of The Vampire Diaries ended last spring, Stefan (Paul Wesley) made a deadly deal with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) to save his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) from dying.

At Klaus' command, Stefan was forced to leave Mystic Falls and go on a massive killing spree, leaving both Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) behind.

In the Season 3 premiere (airing Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on The CW), Damon tracks down his brother -- but their reunion is far from merry.

"I need you stop following me. You're causing some problems," Stefan warns. "I don't need any saving. I just want you to let me go."

The Vampire Diaries premieres Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
