The start of “The Vampire Diaries” this season is going to be a difficult one for many people. However, we have a feeling that it will be a little bit trickier for Ian Somerhalder’s Damon compared to most of the other vampires not named Elena. Why? Not only is he having to come to terms with the fact that the woman he loves has chosen Stefan over him, but she has also just become a transformation into something that he never wanted her to be.
So how are the Salvatore brothers specifically going to try and handle the new Elena situation? This is going to be something that is rather interesting to watch in the premiere, and executive producer Julie Plec recently told The Hollywood Reporter the following all about it:
“Stefan, rightfully so, is terrified she will hurt someone and that she will not be able to deal with having hurt someone so he’s going to have to do everything in his power to keep her from getting herself into those situations.
“Damon, also rightfully so, is convinced that it’s inevitable that vampires hurt people; it’s what they do. He wants to “rip the band-aid off,” as he says in the second episode, and let it bleed. She’s, unfortunately, not getting the same advice from the two people she values most in the world. It’s going to make it more difficult for her.”
So long as Elena ends up staying a vampire (which seems pretty likely at this point), we have a feeling that she is going to have to figure out her new place in the world sooner rather than later. After all, she really is not going to have many other choices if she is really hoping to survive.
What do you want to see transpire when it comes to Elena, and do you think the advice from Ian Somerhalder or Paul Wesley’s character is better? If you want to find out for sure when we are going to see Klaus surface for the first time on the show, all you have to do is visit the story here.
