With all the speculation about who’s gonna die on The Vampire Diaries, this new character poster has us a bit concerned…

TV Line has released this new season 4 sweeps poster, and considering just a few hours ago we posted a quote by Nina Dobrev saying that a huge tragedy would be striking Mystic Falls, we think this could potentially be very bad news for Damon fans!

Vampire Diaries Damon rope

Why does Damon have a rope around his neck?! The caption reads: “Give him enough rope…” which could obviously allude to him needing his freedom, or maybe to the fact that he’ll be risking his own life. Perhaps sacrificing himself for Elena?

What do you think? Would the writers actually kill off Damon? Or could we be looking at a reversal of the season 3 finale, in which Elena died only to wake up as a vampire – perhaps this time, Damon will be killed as a vampire, but he’ll have unwittingly ingested the cure beforehand, and wake up as a human?!

  • genny

    “give him enough rope” could also allude to the saying “if you give someone enough rope, they’ll hang themselves..”

    • Gary65

      That’s what I thought too. Damon’s always had a proclivity to say and do stuff that’ll get him into trouble. Something tells me Silas won’t take to insubordination as well as Klaus did(gulp) :(

  • Gary65

    Translation: Damon is not the one who dies. They’d never spoil such a massive plot point in a poster.

    • http://hypable.com Selina

      Except they did it for Elena last year. So.

      • Gary65

        They did? Aw crap.

    • Ariadne

      I agree.Damon won’t die.Well maybe he will die but…he won’t be dead.Anyway ,what i want to say is that he will die,everyone will think he is dead(the audience and the characters)and the BAM…say hello to a very human Damon trying to be a vampire again!

    • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

      Frankly, as the episodes go by, I think Damon or Elena remain at the top of the list.

  • Fell

    I highly doubt they’ll kill him off, but if they do I will not be watching anymore, I can tell you that. Ian Somerhalder is the only reason I started watching in the first place! ;-)

    • LunaLovegood

      Agreed !

    • Moody

      Completely agree with you. Team Damon all the way ;D

    • http://twitter.com/LauraK483 Laura Krause

      Agree 100%. I will also stop watching if they make the entire Delena thing we have been hoping for purely a sire bond thing. I will stop watching and hunt Julie Plec down myself =P

      I wouldnt be watching anymore either I don’t think they would ever kill Damon off cause it wouldnt be the same anymore there wouldnt be anymore love tringle. I would be do devastated if they killed damon off i love him.

  • Daughter of Eve

    “Give him enough rope” and he’ll lynch his enemies because that’s how badass Damon is.

  • Tomas

    If Elena, Stefan or Damon died that would be bullshit. They’re what the show’s about, if they kill one of them off, the story is dead

    • http://twitter.com/RikuStark Ashley

      Which is highly unfortunate, a show really should have more things going for it instead of the main triangle….

      • AJ

        And it does have other things going for it obviously but it’t centered around the main love triangle. There are other important and interesting things but this is the basis of the show, why can’t haters just accept it’s an integral part even though it’s not everything?

        In Lord of the Rings, you don’t kill off Frodo the ring bearer but that doesn’t take away from the other aspects of the show like Aragorn becoming king again, Gandalf the Grey becoming Gandalf the White, Merry and Pippin’s arcs, ect.

        In Harry Potter, his life story is obviously the focus and he’s not dying before the finale (or at all as it ended up being,) but does that take away from Snape, Dumbledore, Ron, Hermione, even Dobby’s arcs?

        They won’t die because they are the center of the story- TVD is a love triangle based show- but that doesn’t mean that the main trio are all it’s got going for it.

  • Phoebe

    I don’t think that the writers would be stupid enough to kill Damon off, as in not be in the show again kill him off, as I know that he is so many people’s favorite character. That being said I like the idea of the reverse series finale where he accidentally ended up as human. From what I have heard that is what happened in the books? It would be really interesting to see him have to go through that, especially if the cure is a one person only thing as the story would focus mainly on him (ie more screen time for his face xD).

  • Sarah

    Out of every single person on the show, Damon is the VERY LAST one they would ever kill. Let’s be honest. The show wouldn’t be worth watching without his sarcasm.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lilliempeterson Lillie Marie Peterson

      Or his face.

  • BronzeSparks123

    NOT DAMON!!! I would be the most upset about his character dieing. Personally I think it will be Elena though, so I’m not too woried

  • Agrant26

    I think that Damon might be the one to try and sacrifice himself in order to break the sire bond or something like that. Maybe he doesn’t believe(or like) the circumstances it would put Elena in if she takes the cure(or whatever the plan is), so he found a back door just like when he gave her his blood right before the sacrifice because he did not trust that Elijah’s elixir would work. I’m also trying to connect this with the other poster with Stefan, Rebekah and Elena where it said something like an odd threesome or team or something. So maybe those three have to work together to try and help Damon before he does something stupid. Just a thought. If Damon does die, he won’t be killed off the show. There is another plot twist lurking in the corner somewhere.

  • janice

    I think what they might (and should) do is have damon die sacrificing himself for elena, accidently taking the cure and waking up as human, the sire bong breaking and if elena still loves him hell turn back so they could be together

    Eventhough I don’t like Damon at all anymore, the writers would be very dumb to kill his character off. The ratings would lower even more than they are now tbh.

  • http://twitter.com/RikuStark Ashley

    If Damon dies, I HIGHLY doubt it will be for good. I don’t understand why people are so worried. There’s no way the writers are going to kill off one of the main triangle characters, for good, unless it was the series finale….

    If something happens to Damon….. :(

    • http://www.facebook.com/jadersqt Jade Riddle

      ya I so agree I would be so sad theres been so many epsoides where damon could have died but he didn’t so lets hope they wouldnt be stupid to kill him off.

  • Helen

    jst saw the pics of damon and elena on the set of 4×16 the unit members say that they are shooting romantic scenes…!!! the writers r misleading something here…i think it might be caroline or tyler or jeremy…!!! :(

  • http://twitter.com/Gracia_Michelle Gracia Michelle G

    This reminds me of the promotional pictures released for 4×14 where the new hunter has Damon captured. It’s unlikely that they would kill him off if there was no chance of being resurrected again. But turning him human, the way most people are speculating, will actually make for an interesting story line, Either way I can’t wait to see what the writers have in store for Damon Salvatore.

  • http://benchpressabear.tumblr.com Joan

    I don’t think Damon’s character would ever be killed for good (unless we are talking series finale or something), but I DO know that Damon is crazy! One of the many reasons I love him. I don’t think he would hesitate if it came to a point where he felt like had to sacrifice himself.

  • http://twitter.com/Hathor_Sakhmet Hathor_Sakhmet

    TVD would not survive w/o Damon. There is no world without a Damon Salvatore in it!!!!

  • Alyssa

    if they kill damon off …i will not watch the show anymore….really makes me wonder if ian landed 50 shades of grey!!!!!!

  • AC

    I think if he dies, he’ll be saving Stefan. Opi think dying to save Elena is too obvious. Stefan’s reaction when Damon dies: EPIC!

  • Sophie Rawlings

    I hope someone will tell the writers that if they kill of Damon they will lose soooo many fans. The same would happen if they killed off Stefan.
