Damon Salvatore Scoop: Will He Reconnect with Katherine?

at . Comments

On last week's episode of The Vampire Diaries, viewers were treated to a softer side of Damon Salvatore. At least until he murdered a former fling in cold blood.

Does this mean the character might actually transition into a good guy? Not exactly, Ian Somerhalder says.

"I don't think it will go all the way to that place," the actor told TV Guide this week.

But he does seem to have a connection with Elena. Will that continue as the series goes on?

"Damon only has fun," Somerhalder said. "There's something about him that makes Elena fun when she's around Damon. As crazy as she is and as much as she tries to hate him, he makes her smile sometimes. I think maybe she might start trusting Damon if he presents it to her that she can."

But don't expect true romantic sparks to fly any time soon. Somderhalder confirms that Damon only yearns for one woman: Katherine.

"That's his girl," he said. "That's all he wants. It's love... He's waited 150 years to get his girl back. He finds her at some point fairly soon."

Sorry. Guess we should have included a Vampire Diaries spoilers alert before posting that quote. But did anyone think Katherine would really remain tomb-bound forever?

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
