Stefan and Elena may be “The Vampire Diaries” golden couple, but things are going to get worse for these two before they get better. Stefan is headed down a very bad road with Klaus, and even when Stefan does return to Mystic Falls (whenever that may be) he’s hardly going to be in any shape to take Elena to the homecoming dance.
So, of course, the question on everyone’s mind: Where does that leave Damon?
In last week’s episode, Damon insisted that Elena admit that she was worried about him, because, as he said, if Stefan does get his act together, Damon doesn’t want Elena to forget how close they’ve grown while little bro has been gone. Their friendship certainly deepened over the summer, though all Elena would admit to was that she cares whether Damon lives or dies. It’s not exactly the stuff of romance novels.
“There’s yet to be an admission of that chemistry from her part,” executive producer Julie Plec said in a Q&A that Zap2it attended on Wednesday. In the Oct. 6 episode, “Disturbing Behavior,” Elena’s refusal to admit to her feelings for Damon may be addressed.
“Next week’s episode kind of illuminates that a little bit,” Plec confirms. “A lot’s gone unsaid. There’s a big elephant in the room as far as all these fun little stolen moments and romantic banter and their dynamic with each other. It hasn’t gone unnoticed with other people.”
With Stefan continuing to self-destruct (and to other-people-destruct, too), Elena’s besties aren’t going to let her stay in denial too long. “[As Elena is back] in Mystic Falls trying to pick up the pieces and get on with her life, it’s the kind of thing that her friends and her loved ones are going to [point out],” Plec says. “We’re going to have some fun with that.”
It’s about time!
