And he's pissed off. And possibly embarrassed by getting killed repeatedly by that dagger.Will Damon be looking for Stefan?Ian Somerhalder:
"Damon's kind of not to happy about the way life has worked out for him at this point."Kevin Williamson:

"I get the best of both worlds... They're both so much fun... They're both so challenging and so awesome. They will kill me one day... I can get away with a lot more when I'm Katherine on set."Where did Katherine go?Julie Plec:
"She's in Hawaii, waiting for the very special Hawaiian episode maybe."What's it like for Caroline to be violent?Candice Accola:
