Nina promises that Damon & Stefan’s brotherly battle will be a ‘bloody mess!’
It’s a question I’ve posed many times before, but hey, it’s worth asking again: After the game-changing events of The Vampire Diaries‘ season finale, which of the Salvatore brothers — bloodthirsty Stefan (Paul Wesley) or brood-thirsty Damon (Ian Somerhalder) — do you think Elena (Nina Dobrev) will stay with in season three? “Unbeknownst to Elena, Stefan went to the dark side to save her,” Nina recalled backstage at the MuchMusic Video Awards. “But she did kind of get in bed [with Damon] before she knew that.”
I’m personally excited for season three because, for the first time in a while, the war between Team Damon and Team Stefan is being fought on a level playing field. It’s clear now that she has feelings for both brothers, but obvious obstacles remain for each.
“It’ll be interesting to see,” Nina continued. “What [Elena] thought was a goodbye kiss turned into a hello kiss. What’s going to happen next is going to be 22 episodes of a bloody mess.”
