Sara Canning Teases Tension to Come on The Vampire Diaries

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."

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.

Damon
