Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev Split: Will It Affect Vampire Diaries?

We’re finally starting to accept that “Nian” may be officially over, but we’re wondering what the Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev split means for Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries.

Elena finally admitted she truly loves Damon without the influence of the sire bond and then consummated their love with a fiery embrace in the Season 4 finale, it looks like the vampire lovers are on track for a passionate relationship in the upcoming season.

The cast has already started filming, and we’re thinking that it’s possible their shared scenes might be emotionally taxing. We know they’re professional actors, but come on! Ending a long-term relationship and then having to act like you’re in love has to be hard… especially with all the heat rising from Damon and Elena’’s scorching hot sex scenes. Awkward, much?

Although it seems like maybe the two are moving on — according to recent photos of Nina and a mystery man — there might still be some feelings there. Ian shared tips on how to get over heartbreak with Women’s Health, and then compared working with his Vampire Diaries co-stars to “being married.”

We also noticed that Nina tweeted a cryptic “Ignorance is bliss” message on July 2. It’s hard not to speculate about what that tweet was referring to. Meanwhile, she’s also considering getting a dog — which is the best way to get over a breakup we’ve ever heard!

All we know is, we’re hoping these two crazy kids realize they’re meant to be together! How awesome would a Nian reunion be! (OK. Maybe we haven’t accepted their split quite yet…)

How about you? Do you long for these two
Vampire Diaries stars to reunite? Or would you prefer they move on and find someone else? Let us know in the comments! And stay tuned for all the Ian & Nina news you crave right here on Wetpaint Entertainment.
