The Vampire Diaries is going into hibernation for the winter, but the Mystic Falls action returns Thursday, January 27. Until then, you can enjoy and analyze every frame of the extended trailer for the show’s return.

The video includes Jules as a bad-ass villainess, Rose going crazy, Stefan and Elena getting hot and heavy, and Caroline getting stuck in the middle of a love triangle.

It also includes my favorite Caroline quote of all-time: “Everyone just needs to stop kissing me.” It’s a pretty charmed life when your biggest problem is having too many hot guys trying to kiss you.

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, January 27 at 8pm on the CW.
