However, they are going to have to deal with it, and it should be interesting to see just how Elena handles it. What will Elena be like as a vampire? According to Somerhalder, “Who’s to say that when she turns into this vampire and goes through this transformation, when her emotions are amplified ten-thousand fold, that she’s not going to become this super unpredictable being?”

Before she died, Elena did choose Stefan, and Somerhalder said about that: “I think that the yin and the yang of it all is that maybe, obviously she chose Stefan, so I’m sure there’s some hot vamp sex that’s gonna happen there, and then when she gets tired of Stefan, who knows? Maybe she’ll come to Damon.” It is possible that she could end up changing her mind. After all, she is going to remember those times Damon compelled her, and that could influence her decisions and perhaps change things in this love triangle. On that matter, Somerhalder said, “And he knows that. …I think that adds a very interesting layer, which is kind of like an ‘Oh s—‘ moment where it’s like, ‘Wait, I did meet him, and all he did was wish me the best, like I hope you get everything you want out of life.'” He called it “really tragic” and “really sad,” but unfortunately there was no way to see what is coming: “It’s too bad he didn’t have a DVR…but life doesn’t work that way, and we make decisions kind of in the moment.” Nina Dobrev has teased that is going to be an “interesting” conversation that is “in the first couple of episodes.”

However, Damon is not going to be just waiting around in The Vampire Diaries season 4 to see if she changes her mind. Somerhalder teased, “He’s not going to be pining. …Season 2 and 3, he did everything they wanted him to do. He tried to be the person that they wanted him to be. He tried to do it, and guess what, it didn’t work.” So instead, now he’s decided to go “This is who I am, like it or not. …Seriously, if you don’t like who I am, then you have no business being in my face, so get out of it.”

So even though Elena may end up changing her mind, for now, Damon is going to be saying, “She doesn’t want me. She just simply doesn’t want me,” according to Somerhalder. However, he added, “I think the really cool thing is that Elena’s going to be going through all these things that Damon and Stefan went through, so I think they’re also going to be able to relate to her and connect with her on a very interesting level where they for once really understand what she’s going through.” That will drastically change things in the relationships between the three of them, adding a refreshing layer to the love triangle. Elena is going to need both of them to get through this transition, and that should make things very interesting to see play out.
