Damon (Ian Somerhalder) may be assumed dead when The Vampire Diaries picks up for Season 6, but that doesn’t mean Elena (Nina Dobrev) will be falling back into Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) arms. What kind of relationship will Stefan and Elena have in the upcoming season? Here’s what TVD executive producer Julie Plec had to say at Comic-Con...


“Right now the love between Damon and Elena is so strong,” Julie said, in regards to whether there was a chance that Stefan and Elena would get back together. The executive producer said she didn’t see anything other than friendship for Elena and Stefan in the foreseeable future.

According to Nina, Stelena will be in a “settled place” in the coming season. The actress told TV Guide of the Stelena relationship: "If you look back to Season 1, it's been very hectic for her and it's nice [for her and Stefan] to be in a settled place. But it's The CW; we're not going to stay there for very long. She's not going to be happy for more than 15 minutes in the first episode of Season 6." Never a dull moment on TVD.

For Stefan’s part, it sounds like he will be seeking comfort elsewhere come Season 6. According to TVLine, the vampire will be “devastated over the (apparent) loss of his brother,” and will find comfort from a “surprising source.” Speculation anyone?
