Vampire Diaries Cast Comments on Love Triangle

at . Comments

The seeds for a love triangle were plated on The Vampire Diaries last week.

As Elena bonded with Damon and viewers were treated to his softer side (with the exception of that one little murder), the show officially put fans on alert: Stefan has competition for Elena's affections.

Where might this story go from here? Producer Julie Plec and series cast members spoke to E! News about that very topic...

Plec, on show similarities: "The fans take the Damon, Elena and Stefan love triangle very seriously. It reminds me of when I worked on Dawson's Creek and we would honestly get into verbal brawls about whether Joey should be with Dawson or Pacey... We know that the show's true love right now is Stefan and Elena - but then you have Damon, and he is like the show's Pacey, so we can't count him out."

Paul Wesley on upcoming developments: "We are going to see more of the Salvatore backstory, and that will answer a lot of questions as to why things are the way they are."

Nina Dobrev on what's next for her: "There is a huge Katherine episode coming out in hopefully a few weeks. And I have so much fun playing Katherine because she's so unlike myself. She's so conniving and narcissistic, and it's always fun as an actress to get to do the polar opposite and be someone you're not and get it all out."

That's down the line, though. As the photo above indicates, The Vampire Diaries sort of travel back to the 1950s on Thursday's new episode, "Unpleasantville."

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.
