The Vampire Diaries Season Three to "Define" Elena and Damon

at . Comments

Not so fast, Team Delena members. You might need to put that celebration on hold.

According to Vampire Diaries producer Kevin Williamson, yes, Elena and Damon will be together on season three of this CW smash. But that doesn't necessarily mean they'll be together.

“It’s not so much about, ‘Are Damon and Elena going to fall madly in love and live happily ever after?’” Williamson told TV Line. “It’s, ‘Are Damon and Elena going to be able to find the man they both love?’... It’s going to be fun to watch Damon and Elena form this relationship that at its core is about a search for the man they both care about.”

Look for Damon to struggle with the concept of heroism, Williamson added, while both he and Elena try to understand where they fit in.

“It’s about defining their roles,” said Williamson of the search for Stefan. “Are they going to be friends? Lovers? How are they going to define themselves? Because it will be a defining moment for both of them.”

In other season three news, expect a new villain to show up, one that puts Klaus to harmless shame.

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
