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?
