It looks like and are going to be locking lips quite often in this fifth season of The Vampire Diaries.

Hours before last night's season premiere, prominent members of the TVD family were fluttering around Twitter to share some thoughts. Co-executive producer Caroline Dries tweeted:

Kissing. kissing. kissing. murder. kissing. kissing. kissing. death.

To which star Nina Dobrev countered:

LOL perfect description!!

Seeing the obvious excitement shown by Caroline and Nina, Ian Somerhalder felt the need to prove his own giddiness with this Instagram pic on the eve of the premiere:

The photo was accompanied by the caption

Are you READY!!!!!

which seems more of an assertion than an interrogation (those question marks have a function, Ian!). Nevertheless, his former flame and possibly current fling Ms. Dobrev retweeted the self-portrait with the addenda:

Yessssummmm he's right! Tomorrow is day! S***s about to get real!

What did you think of last night's premiere? Did the twitter flurry prelude a memorable ep, or was it all hype? Will one of the characters contract mononucleosis from all that smooching?

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 PM EST on The CW.
