Will ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Be On Tonight? These Supernaturals Have Given Us Plenty To Be Thankful For

Given the fact that we’ve already been privy to The Vampire Diaries Friendsgiving episode “Fade Into You,” it should come as no surprise that a new TVD episode will not air on Thanksgiving day. (I know, I know, I’m super bummed too.) Instead, The CW will be airing back-to-back episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyway, which I’ll admit can be pretty funny. But that being said, I’d still take hot vampires and supernatural hijinks any day of the week. However, I also own a life-size cardboard cut out of Ian Somerhalder, so who’s to say if I’m the epitome of logical decisions?

But the bottom line is, your TVD fix is going to be somewhat lacking this week, which means we’re just going to have to stew in our own ‘shipping obsessions for a little while longer. (But hey, at least there’s pumpkin pie!) However, that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday. After all, this is the time of year when people reflect on everything they’re most thankful for. And boy-oh-boy has TVD given us plenty of helpings in that department.

So as a way to show our gratitude, let’s all raise our blood bags, I mean… glasses and toast everything TVD has made us most thankful for.

Rain Storms

It’s a tall order for sure, but I daresay this scene could give The Notebook’s Allie and Noah rain kiss a run for its money. I should really start just standing out in the rain more often. We all should.

Baths

Because the only thing better than a naked Damon is a naked Damon covered in bubbles. Just try disagreeing with me on this. I dare you.

Just Basically All Forms of Water

There’s… just… uh… I’m sorry, what were we talking about? I got ab-stracted, I mean distracted. Bottom line: water = two thumbs up on this show. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I need a cold shower.

Nature Walks

I’ve never been one for camping, but for some reason it’s beginning to sound more and more appealing. I guess it’s true what they say — anything can happen in the woods.

Pancakes

Especially when they’re made to look like mini-pancake vampires and the chef is rocking some serious ‘90s flannel. Now that’s the true American dream.

Teddy Bears

I mean, come on… the only way this gets any cuter is if he was holding a puppy or a baby instead. And even then it’s still a pretty close call.

So thank you, TVD, for everything that you are and continue to be. Never change.
