A New Love Interest For Damon In Season 4 Of ‘The Vampire Diaries’?


In last week’s Vampire Diaries season finale, Elena made her choice between the Salvatore brothers. Her decision probably wasn’t a huge shock to fans, even though Damon fans had their fingers crossed throughout the season that the now bad boy Stefan might be moving out of the picture. The big question for next season though is will Damon move on? Perhaps gain a new love interest? Maybe Bonnie?

When I attended Comic Con last year, the main question that fans wanted me to ask Ian Somerhalder was what was his thoughts on Damon and Bonnie, because in the books (that the series is based off of ), they have a little something going on.

Ian’s reply? “Bonnie is hot!” (Check out minute 5:22 below for the question!)

I had talked about the possibility of Damon and Bonnie with executive producer Julie Plec when I visited the Vampire Diaries set awhile back. Here’s what she had to tell me.

“That’s a relationship that is really important to book fans, and they make their importance very clear to us in fan feedback. I think the fun that we have with them right now is to go from two people who absolutely have no respect, admiration, or love for one another what so ever… and watching them… because they share common goals and common loves, that they’re willing to put their differences aside and work together. This year was very much about taking Bonnie from own team separated from what Damon is up to and brining the two of them together, so that’s what we can promise for now. As for the future, you never know.” Julie teases.

So what does Julie have to say about the future of Damon’s love life now after the season finale?

“Never say never,” replies Plec. “In the first part of the season, we’re going to be very much invested in what’s going to happen to Elena and what do each of the brothers have to say about it and what are each of them going to do to try to help her through this experience and what does it do to their relationship with each other? Then once the dust settles from that, we’ll see [about a new romance for Damon].”

Hmm… Damon and Bonnie made? Stir it up a little and try something new? Vampire Diaries fans are very vocal about who they believe that Damon should be with. Elena or Bonnie? Let us know your thoughts on why one of these leading ladies is better for him than the other one – Sound off in our comment section below and let your thoughts be known!

  1. I knew there were some Bamon fans out there. 🙂 I think Delena fans are the most vocal ones, or perhaps the mass – but Bamon fans are there too! 🙂

  2. I so want Bamon to happen, the actors have great chemistry and I love relationships that start out with such animosity plus a witch/vampire relationship would be original

  3. The actors have a fantastic chemistry! And I completely agree Lori – I think relationships that start out that way typically end up pretty passionate. That being said, I don’t think anyone could not feel chemistry with Ian Somerhalder. 😉 haha

  4. As much as I want Delena, she treats him like crap. Stomps on his heart over and over. I want more Bamon scenes, I have liked what I have seen so far! 🙂

  5. As much as I love Delena, I also want Damon to be happy…. and right now it doesn’t like that’s possible with Elena. 🙁

  6. when caroline became a vamp, she remembered everything she was compelled to forget. maybe elena will remember the same. and realize she chose the wrong salvatore brother

  7. Delena over Bamon, but my main Damon ships are Daroline and Datherine, besides I don’t think Elena deserves Damon.

  8. There´s so much love between Stefan & Elena,Damon will never be Elena´s No.1 and I always liked the Bonnie and Damon scenes. GO Bamon!

  9. Delena is awesome! Elena will remember what Damon had done, and how he knew what she wanted! If Bamon happens I wouldn’t be disappointed either, but it would be a little weird because he knew her great great grandmother and didn’t very much get along with her.

  10. Oh you guys are right… I forgot that Elena was going to remember everything she was compelled to forget…. that’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out. Probably just more confusion for Elena. Damon needs some happiness in this next season…

  11. I think that the Bamon chemistry should happen. They are a hot power couple and they express some of that in the books. Hey Elena became a vampire almost exactly like she did in the books so what about Bamon coupling? I say , Julie Plec, go for it!

  12. are you kidding me? delena all the way! please don’t give up delena fans. i know elena treats damon like crap most of the time. but i am sure that she’ll realize her mistake and she’ll go running back to him. i think it’s great that stelena is going to happen for a while. it’s just what elena needs to open her eyes and see that she’s with the wrong brother. and when she goes back to damon both she and he can be happy. god please don’t let bamon happen! it would ruin everything!!

  13. May we can have both damon and elena and Bonnie and damon. You all know how elena treated damon kissing and hugging stephen in front of him maybe it is time for damon to find that with bonnie now don’t get me wrong I think a least one sex scene with damon and elena should happen cause it is bound to happen so do it. let each one try to go on with other person but at the end it will always be elena and damon

  14. I think that would be great Christina. In the end I like the idea of Damon and Elena being together… but I think they have a long way to go individually before that would be something that would be positive for both of the characters. In the meantime, I like the idea of the characters exploring other options.

  15. I agree totally Emma Damon really needs to explore and gets his sexy hot stuff on before he and elena can be togather and Bonnie looks like she can handle anything he throws at her. What about this: Damon and Bonnie get it on but elena don’t know and neither does any one else. Elena then wants to spends some time with damon but damon keeps going to bonnie for little love sessions what about that?

  16. BAMON! I mean if LJ Smith the original author thought that they have an EPIC chemistry, why can’t the writers see that? I hope they think more than the triangle and the fact that Ian and Nina are dating. Bonnie is Damon’s equal. She doesn’t fear him and he knows that. Their relationship would be great because she can complement him.

  17. I’m a Bamon baby!!! Love these two together! Oh and you know once Bonnie goes darkside Damon is gonna want some of that goody yummy;)

  18. I love Damon and i think he deserve better than Elena so if Bonnie and he get their freak on i’ll be happy he have someone other than Elena(she has Stefan to be locking lips with)so Damon can lock lips with Bonnie too and the would be a lot of tension(could love it).So I think We should give Bamon a try

  19. Bamon! Damon with Elena is a bore (because Elena IS a bore). I also like the reluctant friendship/companionship whatever you want to call it – Damon and Bonnie formed. They would challenge each other. I see them as equals. Kinda remind me of Dair in Gossip Girl.
