‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 6 spoilers: Ian Somerhalder on Damon’s … help?

Damon -Is it starting to look more and more as though there is going to be trouble on “The Vampire Diaries,” and most of it goes by one name: Caroline. With her decision to turn off the humanity switch, there is of course massive potential for her to run amok in Mystic Falls causing all sorts of chaos.

So what is there that you can hope for from this potential story moving forward? This is something that Ian Somerhalder, who is directing the upcoming episode Thursday night, is happy to explaining. Speaking to TVLine, he lays out that we will see Damon lend a helping hand to Candice Accola’s character during her trying time. However, don’t just assume here that he is really looking to do the obvious thing. Rather, there is another very-specific motive behind some of his actions:

“Damon wants to protect Elena and his brother and make sure there’s gas in his Camaro. That’s about it … So helping Caroline is really just Damon’s way of trying to help his brother.”

Damon and Stefan are going to have a lot on their place, mostly because we are getting closer and closer to seeing what happens with their mother back in the past. Given that Annie Wersching is appearing in more than one upcoming episode of the series moving forward, it is pretty easy to figure out that this is a woman we are going to be seeing a whole lot more of moving forward.
