Look out, Delena shippers, your favorite vampire duo might just be heading for trouble when The Vampire Diaries returns for Season 5 on October 3.

According to E! Online, “something will affect their relationship big-time in the first half of the season.” Uh oh, looks like Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert are — yet again — going to be faced with a roadblock on their path to sweet vampire happiness. And before you start thinking that a big bad will be wreaking havoc on their relationship, we’ve got more news for you.

“And it’s not a supernatural element getting in the way of Delena happiness,” the news site goes on to say. Hmm, then there’s really only thing that could be destroying our hopes and dreams is the dreaded realm of higher education. That’s right, college is probably the main culprit for disharmony between the star-crossed lovers.

Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) might be going strong now, but who knows what’s down the road for these two. Don’t forget that they’re going to be dealing with a long-distance relationship. Those are the absolute worst, but if anyone can beat that, it would be two supernatural beings, right?

What do you think? Will Damon and Elena’s relationship survive this season or are they headed for a breakup?
