Fans of The Vampire Diaries‘ Damon/Elena and Stefan/Elena, brace yourselves: Both the current couple and the erstwhile pair are looking at bumpy roads ahead.
After finding out that versions of Stefan and Elena have been drawn to each other over the centuries, Damon made it clear that he wasn’t going to allow the universe to get in the way of his romance with the Whitmore college freshman. But that’s easier said than done.
“It’s the elephant in the room,” describes Nina Dobrev during a TVLine visit to the show’s Atlanta set. “When you’re in a relationship and there’s an ex-boyfriend around, the significant other is always like, ‘Hmm, I wonder…’ There’s always that insecurity. They might say that it’s OK, but it’s in the back of their mind. It’s the same thing with Elena and Damon. He’s pretending to be OK with it, but he can’t unthink and unknow what he heard and what he knows now.”
Having that little destiny nugget tucked away in Damon’s mind “will always cause tension in their relationship moving forward,” continues the actress.
