tvd bringing clip 'The Vampire Diaries' clip: A serious shirtless Salvatore conversation“The Vampire Diaries” took a brief hiatus this week, but we’ll forgive The CW their bizarre scheduling practices because they still managed to provide us with a little half-naked Salvatore eye candy.

The clip from next week’s episode, “Bringing Out the Dead,” features Stefan and Damon having a little heart-to-heart.

Damon and Elijah arrange a treaty meeting with Stefan and Klaus — probably in some inevitably futile attempt to mediate the villain vs. villain civil war happening in Mystic Falls. Stefan isn’t particularly in the mood to shake hands, though, and he doesn’t think that stalling Klaus is the best plan of inaction.

And then there’s that whole Damon-and-Elena-kissed situation. It appears that that punch we saw last week wasn’t the last of the conversation between Stefan and Damon. “Just remember, if it wasn’t for Klaus, you wouldn’t have become such a dick, and that kiss would never have happened,” Damon snaps.

Uh, we know some “Delena” fans who would beg to differ, Mr. Salvatore.
