Executive producer Caroline Dries promises that ‘Delena’ will be pushed ‘in the right direction’ on the series’ major milestone episode.
Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) may have called it quits on the Dec. 12 midseason finale of The Vampire Diaries, but as you probably suspected, their ‘breakup’ is really just a break. The next episode, airing Jan. 23, will pick up immediately following the sinking of their ship — and executive producer Caroline Dries says fans should anticipate a “fun” reaction from both sides.
“The 100th episode will revisit this fight that they had, this break-up, and [Damon’s] going to get some good brotherly advice that will push him in the right direction,” Caroline tells HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine.
And Damon isn’t the only half of ‘Delena’ who will be turning to Stefan (Paul Wesley) for advice!
“Stefan is a person that [Elena’s also] going to lean on for advice and wisdom,” Caroline teases. “She trusts him fully.”
But before you ask, the answer is no; Elena’s not jumping back into bed with Stefan — at least not anytime soon.
No Hope For Katherine & Stefan
In fact, Caroline says we shouldn’t expect to see Stefan jumping into bed with either of the doppelgangers, including Katherine, who collapsed from a heart attack in the final moments of the midseason finale.
“The 100th episode is Katherine on her death bed,” Caroline explains. “She doesn’t have a huge fanbase at the Salvatore house where she is, so Stefan is the person who’s there for her. But when you’re dying, romance isn’t exactly on the front burner.”
Yikes! We’re glad to hear there’s still hope for Damon and Elena, but we don’t want their next date to be Katherine’s funeral!
HollywoodLifers, are you hoping that Elena and Damon patch things up and get back together? And how sad are you that Katherine is (probably, definitely) dying? Drop a comment with your thoughts on their split below.
