But what could the brothers be fighting about this time? Read spoilers & share your theories!
I hope you enjoyed Damon (Ian Somerhalder) sucker punching Stefan (Paul Wesley) on last week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, because there’s a whole lot more Salvatore-on-Salvatore action coming our way! This new photo from the show’s Feb. 21 episode, ironically titled “Stand By Me,” finds the brothers facing off yet again — and in a cave, no less.
So what has the brooding bros so heated? Perhaps the answer lies in the spoilers I recently posted from the episode.
My first thought is, given how Elena (Nina Dobrev) returns to Mystic Falls in an altered “state of mind,” that Stefan and Damon are butting heads over the best way to handle her. And let’s face it, aren’t most of the boys’ headaches caused by Mystic Falls’ favorite doppelganger?
It’s also possible the brothers’ scuffle stems from the “somber” news Damon relays to Rebekah (Claire Holt). She is, after all, Stefan’s new — well, new again — squeeze.
Either way, the Salvatores being at each other’s throats can’t be a good thing, especially now that loyalty is more important than ever. With the cure on the line, I want to see less throwing down and more bro-ing down. (“Bro-ing down” a thing, right? Oh well, it is now.)
Why do YOU think Stefan and Damon are fighting in this new pic? Is it over Elena, or could there actually be more to their squabble this time? Drop me a comment with your best theories!
