After three months of continuously drowning, dying, and coming back to life over and over and over again, someone finally realized Stefan was in trouble in Thursday (Oct. 3) night's "The Vampire Diaries" Season 5 premiere.

Damon, who has been blissfully happy with Elena all summer, is feeling the guilt now knowing that Stefan has been in torturous pain while he's been "playing house," and thanks to the promo released for episode 2, "True Lies," it looks like the hunt to save Stefan is finally beginning.

Watch the full promo below:

How has Stefan been reaching out to Elena? And will their search for Stefan throw a wrench into Damon and Elena's relationship? Clearly she still has deep feelings for him, as evidenced by her emotional plea to find him.

"The Vampire Diaries" airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
