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.

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
