The Vampire DiariesDamon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) finally got the girl (aka Elena Gilbert) after four seasons of pining, but will the contentment last? Ian talked to the Los Angeles Times about Delena’s future — and you might be shocked at what he has to say!

“I would be so bold as to say that things change,” Ian said. “And in Mystic Falls they change rapidly. Love comes in many forms. You have to fight for it and you have to work for it. Her being away at college and all that stuff that happens in Mystic Falls, it’s going to be challenging. It’s what creates the drama of the show. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it."

Yikes! It sounds like the days of champagne and bubble baths are long over. We wonder if this has anything to do with the lies Damon started telling Elena in the Season 5 premiere — or, as he spins it, omissions of truth? Elena doesn’t liked to be lied to, so could these omissions start the fractures that may eventually tear these two lovebirds apart? We can’t imagine Damon taking a Delena breakup well, and neither can Ian...

"If and when Elena and Damon break up, the world better watch out," Ian said. "Here’s a dude who has been in love with the same woman for 150 years, only to fall in love with her doppelganger. It is the same person, just sweeter demeanor. I think after going through that, he’d smarten up. Maybe he'll just stick with sorority girls for a while and then maybe find some super-hot vampire chick to settle down with in the some island in the Caribbean. Write a book, have a couple golden retrieves that he rescues. Maybe a pitbull. Some chickens, some eggs."

While watching Damon raise orphan puppies on a Caribbean island sounds like it would make for riveting television, we hope it doesn’t come to that!
