Nina Dobrev Reveals Startling Upcoming ‘Vampire Diaries’ Plot Twist

As we all know on “Vampire Diaries,” Damon (Ian Somerhalder) has always had his eye on Elena (Nina Dobrev). He’s even teased his brother — and Elena’s boyfriend — Stefan (Paul Wesley), that he thinks she’s major eye candy. But, with Stefan and Elena finally going there (yes! They did it! You know … the big IT!), it seemed these two are on track to staying together and making it work.

Uh, well, cut to the fall finale episode, when Elena finds a photo of her look-a-like and former Damon/Stefan paramour, Katherine, and then freaking out and subsequently almost dying in a car accident. Apparently, this car accident and the events following it will somehow lead to Elena spending a lot more time with a certain Salvatore brother: Damon (!!!). Yeah, we’re confused too.

So, we asked Nina at Tuesday’s Golden Globes Young Hollywood party to tell us what we can expect in the crop of new episodes set to air beginning this January. “The last episode we ended on a cliffhanger,” she explained to MTV News. “My character gets into a extremely big car accident, she hits someone and you’re left hanging. You don’t know what’s going to happen, so we’re going to pick up right from there and you’re gong to see what happened and what happened after that.”

She very coyly added a split second later: “And, let’s just say Elena and Damon are gonna hang out a little bit.”

Uh oh…

“The Vampire Diaries” returns to the CW in January, but until then keep checking back with us for more scoop and news!

What do you think about this news? Are you happy to hear that we’re going to see more Elena-Damon time?
