Epic Kiss, Main Character Exit to Come on The Vampire Diaries

by at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries returns January 5.

We've already posted the official synopsis for the first episode of 2012, "The New Deal," but a couple of new teasers have emerged that will surely get people talking as we gear up for the show's return this winter.

According to E! Online ...

  • An "epic kiss" (gulp) will be happening very soon. Epic.
  • A main character we know and love is leaving Mystic Falls, thanks (indirectly) to Damon.

Theories on who the kiss involves, and who leaves? Do they leave and come back? What's Damon's role in that plot line? So much to discuss, and so many possible theories for a show where anything's possible.

Share your predictions and comments below!

I just love Paul Wesley and Nina Dobrev's chemistry too bad they didn't find a ramintoc relationship off air. Ian has gorgeous eyes and I am sure is a good guy, but I see more real chemistry between Paul/Nina. Paul is gorgeous and seems like a genuinely nice guy like his character.

@Lauren!! i like your way of thinking!!! though i am stefan and elena all the way, totally agree on the characters love and how that has been developed not how we all see it fit!! though remember guys this show has a contract for 5 or 6 seasons!!! they cant just all of a sudden put damon and elena together just because stefan is now bad, i think things will happen but they have to do it as a natural process not from one brother to the next. I really dont see them keeping damon and elena together for 3 more seasons and no stefan and elena, that just wouldnt make sense!! so if they do get together this season, something will tear them apart... but who knows what will happen when the show is all over with, thats the real puzzler, is that when its all said and done, at the end of the day, who will be together in the very last episode? and i dont think any of us should speculate as that is 3 and half more years of VD!!!

(because this thing cut me off at 1000 characters!) At first, you had Stefan the good boy and Damon the bad boy, but that is over now. Damon and Elena's relationship has turned into less and less of a bickering battle and more of a deep almost family-like connection. They both love Stefan and want to get him back, but I have the feeling that even when they do, there will be a love triangle and it won't just be about her love for Stefan anymore. There is really nothing keeping her from acting on her feelings for Damon at this time. He has become a very constant and permanent part of her life and she trusts him more than anyone. There is no more good boy/ bad boy here. There are just two brothers who have BOTH shown their heart to her. Who have both failed her and protected her.. who have BOTH loved her. Its not about who we like more as viewers. It is about who she loves more as a character.

I don't know why people think it is personal that we all have different opinions about TVD. Everyone is entitled to be a Stefan OR Damon fan. I happen to be a "Delena" fan, myself. I was definitely into Stelena at first but things changed. A long building relationship started happening between Damon and Elena and for me, it just feels deeper than her and Stefan. Yes, she loves Stefan. That is obvious. But for me, it feels like a high school romance verses a deep adult connection. I am not knocking the high school romance, but when the show started off, Elena was a lot more fragile and innocent than she is now. She was swept off her feet by this charming and sexy new boy in town and she will probably love him forever but along the way, this man who drove her insane had a major transformation and fell madly in love with her. And he never stopped showing it to her.. he did everything and anything to protect her.

i love damon& all but come on!! Stelena so needs to come back! Seeing elena& damon together would ruin it all, stefan all the way! I have this feeling that alaric's guna be the one to leave..i hope not though:( i love him to bits! Gaah to excited to find out.

I think it's Bonnie, because she leaves to go find her mother. I saw this in a spoiler. Or Stefan... He leaves because he saw the BIG kiss between Damon and Elena?! :) Hopefully..

Ok. Stefan left with Kat at the end of the season. Apparently he doesn't like Klaus and he want him dead. Guess there are feelings between Stefan and Elena, like when she held him captive in that cellar and they were up close and she should have kissed him, but she didn't. I really think that if they kiss it will clear a bit for Stefan, (just sayin). But Elena is now more into Damon and maybe Damon is going to leave Mystic Falls, Elena is going to cry and they kiss. A BIG kiss. But Damon said that he would never leave Elena again, so it may not be Damon who leaves MF. Maybe Bonnie, she had enough and come on! How can she everytime find a spell to fight every freakin' thing that comes in they're way? A bit boring. The most normal thing would be is Matt. He's the only normal guy who has delt the least with all the supernatural stuff. Why not sell the house, quit job and school and move?

main character to exit duhhhh its Elena, she is not mentioned in the 11th episode nor on any of the stills. I think her and Damon will share a kiss goodbye...obviously she will come back!

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

I wanna say thank you for giving me everything I always wanted. A love to consume me, and passion, and adventure. There's nothing more I could ever want than for it to last forever, but it can't. This is the last time I'm gonna see you. This is goodbye, Damon.

Elena [to Damon]
