Sara Canning Teases Tension to Come on The Vampire Diaries

by at . Comments

For Jenna and Alaric, life can't be all ice cream bowls and shirtless scenes.

While this couple has grown closer on The Vampire Diaries, it's mostly done so off-screen. But Sara Canning says that will soon change when David Anders returns as John Gilbert and causes problems for her character, who remains in the dark about... pretty much everything in Mystic Falls.

“We’ve seen to what degree already John affects Jenna," Canning told EW. "We know they’ve had a past relationship. We know that he’s making trouble for her in terms of guardianship of Elena and Jeremy... But I think the more significant thing that we’re gonna see is the tension that it puts on the relationship between Jenna and Alaric."

Producer Julie Plec has said John will return at some point next month.

As for another relationship, might we see more of Jenna and Elijah? The former believes the latter is simply a visiting author conducting research and...

"We’ll see that grow into something else," Canning teases. "And that is all I’m saying."

Rats! For a closer look at what's ahead, though, fans should visit our Vampire Diaries spoilers section.

Finally! She is getting a storyline and Alaric can go back to teaming up with Damon because Stefan and Damon is nothing comparable to Alaric and Damon.

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

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.
