With only one week until the highly anticipated Season 2 premiere, it’s time for another sneak peek at Zap2it‘s exclusive visit to the set of “The Vampire Diaries.” I sat down with the always charming Ian Somerhalder to talk about what’s up next for Damon.
In last spring’s finale, we saw a new side of Damon when he confessed his feelings for Elena (Nina Dobrev). In Somerhalder’s words, Damon put himself in a “vulnerable, ridiculous, horrible position.” Somerhalder scoffs when I ask him if he likes Damon’s softer moments.
“No, because then I feel like Stefan,” he says. “With the scene on the porch, it wasn’t hard kissing Katherine, but it was hard being vulnerable. It’s so counter-intuitive for me now, as Damon, when I put on the clothes and the whole thing.”
Unfortunately, his heartfelt confession fell on the wrong ears — and on the wrong lips. So what’s going to happen when Damon reveals that he kissed Katherine, the wolf in sheep’s clothing?
“He’s not going to be very happy, and most likely he’s going to be hurt,” Somerhalder says. “And when Damon’s not happy and hurt, s*** goes down.”
Which isn’t to say that Katherine and Damon won’t get it together and live out eternity in murderous monogamous bliss. “We’re gonna work this out,” he laughs. “Why not? Cops come twice a week, domestic violence…”
