A new season of The Vampire Diaries means new, sexy couples. But which ones will be hooking up and which will be getting their necks gnawed off? And not in a good way.

Here are the most likely couples of Season 7 based on the premiere.

1. Stefan and Caroline

Steroline all the way! (If Klaroline can't happen, of course! I still haven't given up.) They may have shared a steamy kiss tonight, but that doesn't mean everything is going to be smooth sailing from here on out. See No. 2 and No. 7.

2. Caroline and Enzo

These two have been flirting it up for three seasons now. And, yeah, she and Stefan (Paul Wesley) have this thing going, but there is no denying the chemistry between Caroline (Candice Accola) and Enzo. Plus, we know Caroline has a thing for bad boys. Can Stefan really be her all?

3. Bonnie and Damon

Kat Graham told us that from what she's seen so far of Season 7, Bamon isn't happening. That doesn't mean we didn't notice that after Damon (Ian Somerhalder) saved Bonnie's life tonight with that runaway car, there were some chemistry-induced stares between those two.

4. Bonnie and a new romantic interest

If Bonnie isn't going for Damon, girl deserves some action. She was, after all, stuck in some alternate universe for most of last season and then she had to deal with Kai. Now it's time she had some fun. Man, woman, multiple people — we honestly don't care, just make it happen!

5. Damon and a heretic

They really seemed to stress tonight that Elena gave Damon permission to date, which means he probably won't be spending Season 7 alone. The heretic ladies are just as gorgeous as they are spunky. It's the perfect combination that could catch Damon's eye for some fun while Elena is gone.

6. Lily and Enzo

They have this really weird parental relationship that definitely has the potential to turn flirty. I really wouldn't put it past either of them to seek something deeper once Lily decides she can trust him.

7. Stefan and a heretic

As we previously reported, Paul Wesley told us he was going to be kissing multiple ladies in Season 7, which means it's unlikely that he and Caroline are good to go for long, despite that steamy kiss they shared. Could one of the heretic ladies catch his eye?

8. Alaric and Jo

Alaric is keeping Jo's body frozen at the morgue. Is he plotting to bring her back from the dead? We wouldn't put it past him, nor would we be upset if Jo returned. Alaric's had his heart broken enough on this show already.

9. The heretic ladies

For the first time in The Vampire Diaries history, the show is going for a lesbian romance, and we're so excited to see it unfold. This is the 21st century, after all, and it's about time the show mixed up its relationship game a bit.

Which couple are you most excited to see in Season 7?
