The other half of my favorite ‘Vampire Diaries’ couple is back on the right side, but does that mean he’ll reunite with Elena? Sure her memory of loving him may be out of her mind, but it’s not exactly gone forever — and she could get those memories back sooner than we think.
For now, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has one thing on his mind — reuniting with the love of his life, Elena (Nina Dobrev). However, we know that she’s actually had all memories of loving him taken out of her mind. In a new interview with the show’s EP, Julie Plec, we learn that she actually may not be able to take that. Will Alaric (Matt Davis) give her those memories back?
‘Vampire Diaries’: Damon’s Return
“Now that Damon’s finally back, he won’t waste another second being without Elena. But with her memories compelled away, she’s not nearly as enthused by the prospect of seeing him,” Julie told E! “When it comes to Damon, without the good, there’s a whole lot of bad. And Elena’s still very much focused on that. However, not knowing the full story of their relationship will eventually begin to gnaw at her, and she’ll have to decide if that’s something she can live with.”
So, does that mean it’s not something she’ll live with? That’s what we’re hoping for, that’s for sure.
We also know, according to the episode description, that Damon will “take matters into his own hands when he receives some upsetting news.” We’re assuming that news is that his BFF has deleted all love for him out of her mind for good. I have a feeling he’ll try to convince Alaric to give them back!
Delena, An ‘Epic Love’ Story
“At the end of the day, it is for love and he’s going to try everything he can to get her back and win her back,” Ian told TVGuide in an interview. Nina even chimed in saying that the show is much different without the “epic love” story of Delena.
“It’s a strange dynamic now to have all that gone, which is kind of what makes it interesting because it’s an Elena we’ve never seen before,” she said.
I’m so excited to see them reunite!
Alright, HollywoodLifers — what do you think? Should Elena get her memories of Damon back? Do you think she will? Let us know!
