Vampire Diaries Season 4: [Spoiler] Is Elena’s Biggest Hurdle to Happiness with Stefan
Hey, Elena (Nina Dobrev). We know you just transitioned into a vampiress and are probs pretty busy getting used to drinking other people’s blood, but... can we talk about Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) for a sec? Some interviews with Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec have us a little concerned. For example, Plec talked to TV Line about you learning to thrive as a newborn vamp and said, “Elena’s going to have to wade through the push and pull between the brothers and their conflict and try to come out the other side of it with a point of view of her own, which is going to take some time.”
So, just don’t lose your mind while they’re fighting for you, okay?
Then there was talk about obstacles you’ll face with Stefan. “Without a doubt, the biggest threat to their relationship is, in fact, that she is a vampire,” Plec said. “They love each other as deeply as two people can love each other, but that doesn’t mean that their relationship is infallible.”
See?! It’s a little disconcerting to think that you two could have any flaws after everything you’ve been through! But we know if there’s a crack in the Stelena mold, that might bring in an opportunity for serious Delena action.
"Someone asked me what the biggest hurdle would be for Stefan and Elena this year, and it's Damon," Plec told Zap2It. "Plain and simple. Damon and Elena's feelings for Damon continue to be the biggest things that could keep Stefan and Elena from being together forever."
Hurdles, so many hurdles! Even with a vamp’s super-jumping abilities, all those obstacles could cause anyone to trip and fall...
