Vampire Diaries Cast Comments on Love Triangle

at . Comments

The seeds for a love triangle were plated on The Vampire Diaries last week.

As Elena bonded with Damon and viewers were treated to his softer side (with the exception of that one little murder), the show officially put fans on alert: Stefan has competition for Elena's affections.

Where might this story go from here? Producer Julie Plec and series cast members spoke to E! News about that very topic...

Plec, on show similarities: "The fans take the Damon, Elena and Stefan love triangle very seriously. It reminds me of when I worked on Dawson's Creek and we would honestly get into verbal brawls about whether Joey should be with Dawson or Pacey... We know that the show's true love right now is Stefan and Elena - but then you have Damon, and he is like the show's Pacey, so we can't count him out."

Elena and the Brothers

Paul Wesley on upcoming developments: "We are going to see more of the Salvatore backstory, and that will answer a lot of questions as to why things are the way they are."

Nina Dobrev on what's next for her: "There is a huge Katherine episode coming out in hopefully a few weeks. And I have so much fun playing Katherine because she's so unlike myself. She's so conniving and narcissistic, and it's always fun as an actress to get to do the polar opposite and be someone you're not and get it all out."

That's down the line, though. As the photo above indicates, The Vampire Diaries sort of travel back to the 1950s on Thursday's new episode, "Unpleasantville."

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

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.

Damon
