‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 4: The future for Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley

Vampire DiariesIt has already been made pretty apparent on “The Vampire Diaries” season 4 just what is coming up for one of the characters in Elena, as Damon instructed her at the end of Thursday night’s new episode to flick off the humanity switch. This is going to lead to a vampire who is still honest in the same way that Elena always was, but at the same time ruthless and cold compared to the girl who lost everyone from Jenna to Alaric to even Jeremy.

So what happens now for some of the other characters? Two of the biggest question marks remaining are the Salvatore brothers, who have helped Elena for so long try to deal with all of the threats in Mystic Falls. (Oh, and they both also have slept with her on occasion.) Damon and Stefan have been at odds for some time, but executive producer Julie Plec tells Entertainment Weekly that this could change soon:

“If anything, the next chapter of this brings Stefan and Damon weirdly closer together because as they struggle to try to figure out what to do with this girl that they don’t recognize any more, they start to realize how much their relationship has been impacted by their shared love for her. And having kind of watched her lose her brother and them have that feeling of, ‘Oh my gosh. As much as I fight with my brother that I have, if I lost him, I’d have nothing,’ it has a nice healing effect on these two over the next chapter.”

Suffice it to say that neither Ian Somerhalder nor Paul Wesley’s character is going to be free from Elena as a love interest yet; after all, she does strip down in front of both of them in the first promo for the upcoming March 14 episode.
