Don’t expect Damon Salvatore to be wallowing in a bottle of bourbon now that Elena’s not around on ‘The Vampire Diaries.’ Ian Somerhalder confirms Damon will be moving on with many new girls. So, who will it be?! Click to WATCH!
You didn’t think Damon was going to remain celibate until Elena (Nina Dobrev) decides to possibly make a return to The Vampire Diaries, did you? Well, Ian Somerhalder, 36, revealed in a new interview that Damon will be bringing girls back to his bed during Elena’s absence. Delena fans, we’re in this together.
“All I can say about that is that they were great characters separate, they were great characters together, and they remain great characters separated,” Ian told E! News. “Damon is still here and he’s still evolving and he’s still having a blast and he’s still saying super-smarmy, ridiculously overly confident, very wildly embarrassing and degrading things and he will continue to do that, but with a little love for Elena in his heart.”
Ian admits Damon is still going to have a tough time dealing with Elena being gone, but they were never married. They’re totally endgame, but eternity is a long time. Plus, he has a big bed he needs to put to good use.
“I’m thinking that this is the evolution of the show,” Ian continued. “Obviously she is in his heart and he is going to have a very tough time understanding how to go on, but that’s what drama’s for… I said, ‘As long as he can fit up to eight sorority girls, then that’s how big we should make the bed.’ That’s Damon Salvatore, you know what I mean? He’s not married.”
Honestly, can we really blame Damon for moving on? A guy’s got to do what a guy’s to do. Elena wouldn’t want him to spend his days alone. No one deserves that kind of loneliness!
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
