New Vampire Diaries Couple Alert: Damon and Elena?!?

at . Comments

Three is about to be a crowd on The Vampire Diaries.

At the TV Critics Winter Press Tour, star Nina Dobrev said her character of Elena is about to take an unwanted road trip with Damon. But this adventure will allow her to see a new side to the more devious Salvatore sibling.

"Now that the necklace is off, she's very vulnerable," Dobrev said, referring to Elena's choice to ditch her vervain-inspired jewelry on the 2009 finale. "In the next episodes we're going to see there's going to be a lot of Damon and Elena."

Great Threesome

Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder (Damon) will share passionate scenes of another kind in the near future, too: the show will once again flashback to 1864 and depict more of Katherine and Damon's relationship.

"There's a big episode coming up that's all about Katherine," Dobrev said. "I love playing her because she's everything I'm not and I can get it all out of my system. I actually have modeled the character after Ian's performance of Damon, because he does it so well."

As for other Vampire Diaries tidbits and spoilers revealed at the event:

  • Vicki is definitely dead;
  • Mia Kirshner will debut, via a flashback, as Alaric's wife on the show's returning January 21 episode;
  • "The cork will be pulled on the whole basement thing," said producer Kevin Williamson. "Before the first season is over."

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.
