The Jan. 12 episode finds the former lovers at odds — again — and it gets really ugly, really fast.

A while back, The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec told reporters that this would be the “year of the originals,” but it’s looking more like the year of Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) to me — and that only becomes more evident after the Jan. 12 episode.

My Mystic Falls source tells me that last week’s confrontation between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Elena — you know, the one that ended in her slapping him and telling him to go to hell — is nothing compared to their heated confrontation this week.

Without giving too much away, Stefan’s ongoing battle with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) leads him to betray Elena in a way viewers won’t see coming. Decisions are made, actions are taken, and Elena ends up getting VERY hurt.

So here’s my question to you: How do you feel about Elena’s relationship with the Salvatore brothers this season? Are you annoyed with Stefan’s sudden change in character, or are you happy to see Damon’s sensitive side getting a chance to shine? Drop me a comment with your thoughts!
