The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Spoilers: Are Damon and Elena Headed For a “Major Breakup”?

Uh-oh, Delena fans. You may want to sit down for this one. We know Damon and Elena aren’t necessarily on the best of terms on The Vampire Diaries — they’re still together, but she also just found out he’s been lying to her about killing Whitmores for years — but are they headed for a breakup?

A new spoiler from has us worried for the couple. “Two of these things are true and one is a lie,” writes “In the next batch of episodes... 1) There will be a major breakup; 2) A fan-favorite character will say goodbye for good and 3) Someone will pull a body switcheroo.”

OK, so this doesn’t necessarily mean Damon and Elena are breaking up, but we wouldn’t be surprised. Sure, Elena is currently at the mercy of Dr. Wes, but after inevitably Stefan saves her from the Dr. Wes’ lab table, will she start to question what else Damon has been lying about? It’s plausible — but we know how devoted Damon and Elena are to making their relationship work. So why would these two break things off?

We have one theory: if Damon’s mission in life was to kill the Whitmores, who’s to say he wasn’t responsible for driving the Gilberts off Wickery Bridge? Now, we know it’s a crazy theory, but if the Gilberts were part of the Augustine Society from the beginning, Damon would have known they were associated with the Whitmores. We’re thinking a secret of that magnitude would definitely drive a wedge in between Delena. In fact, we’re not sure Elena would ever be able to forgive Damon after that.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that this spoiler is a total case. In that case, we’re pretty sure the fan-favorite character saying goodbye is Katherine. As for the “body switcheroo,” we’re not entirely sure what that would entail, but perhaps Matt will finally get some screentime?

What do you think, TVD fans? Are Damon and Elena headed for a break up? Sound off in the comments!

Catch the next episode of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, December 12 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
