Producer Confirms Elena and Damon Bonding Session on The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Earlier this month, Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev said her character would soon grow close to Damon.

Based on previews and spoilers for tonight's "Bloodlines," it looks like that relationship starts to take a surprising turn when Elena accompanies Damon on a trip to Georgia.

In a TV Addict interview, producer Julie Plec says the two are "together the entire episode, which is kind of awesome." It may also be kind of difficult for Stefan, and even viewers, accept.


Is Elena making a dangerous decision by cozying up to the more distrustful Salvatore sibling? Plec says:

"When Elena and Damon return from their road trip there’s going to be that question: Now that Damon and Elena have bonded does she trust him in a way that she shouldn’t and that’s not safe for anybody? Also, where does Elena fit into Damon’s nefarious plan and is she going to help him out? Just who’s on whose side?"

Questions such as that are a major reason why we tune in to The Vampire Diaries.

We can't wait for its return and will, as always, review and recap this week's episode soon after it airs.

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.
