After months of living and breathing Damon Salvatore, Ian Somerhalder has announced that the filming for the fifth season of The Vampire Diaries has "officially wrapped".
Having counted down the days on his Twitter page, the actor who plays the vampire in the hit CW network supernatural drama, marked the end of the season by posting a picture of himself on Instagram appearing to take a nap.
Along with the picture which showed Ian lying on a sofa with his eyes closed underneath a poster of the show's fifth season, the caption read:
"IT'S A WRAP!!!!DAMON SALVATORE AND IAN SOMERHALDER ARE OFFICIALLY WRAPPED-SEASON #5 is DONE. To the most amazing group of people in this business, THANK YOU.THANK YOU. THANK YOU!!!! Thanks for an amazing year of storytelling and thank you to out AUDIENCE-WITHOUT YOU, WE ARE NOTHING... LOVE IAN&DAMON."
Meanwhile, the current season of The Vampire Diaries has given fans a few shocks over the duration of the series. We don't think fans will be able to forget the death of Katherine anytime soon after she was killed by Paul Wesley's character Stefan following the death of her daughter Nadia.
Or what about the to-ing and fro-ing of Damon and Elena's relationship. One minute they're on, one minute they're off and at one point in between it all, they hook up and have "mind blowing" sex, just like they did after the demise of Katherine.
Knowing that Elena was back, Damon promised her: "I am going to hunt you down and give you the most mind-blowing night of your life," whilst he was chained in a dungeon in the Salvatore mansion.
But he wasn't the only prisoner as Elena was also confined to her dorm room after Katherine left her with Wes' ripper virus.

However as the drama continued, Elena made it out of her dorm and went to the Salvatore mansion where she and Damon had a heart to heart and a bit of an argument before the pair shared a steamy embrace and fell into bed together for a night of passion.
