New Vampire Diaries Couple Alert: Damon and Elena?!?

at . Comments

Three is about to be a crowd on The Vampire Diaries.

At the TV Critics Winter Press Tour, star Nina Dobrev said her character of Elena is about to take an unwanted road trip with Damon. But this adventure will allow her to see a new side to the more devious Salvatore sibling.

"Now that the necklace is off, she's very vulnerable," Dobrev said, referring to Elena's choice to ditch her vervain-inspired jewelry on the 2009 finale. "In the next episodes we're going to see there's going to be a lot of Damon and Elena."

Great Threesome

Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder (Damon) will share passionate scenes of another kind in the near future, too: the show will once again flashback to 1864 and depict more of Katherine and Damon's relationship.

"There's a big episode coming up that's all about Katherine," Dobrev said. "I love playing her because she's everything I'm not and I can get it all out of my system. I actually have modeled the character after Ian's performance of Damon, because he does it so well."

As for other Vampire Diaries tidbits and spoilers revealed at the event:

  • Vicki is definitely dead;
  • Mia Kirshner will debut, via a flashback, as Alaric's wife on the show's returning January 21 episode;
  • "The cork will be pulled on the whole basement thing," said producer Kevin Williamson. "Before the first season is over."

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: 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.
