It’s pretty clear Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) feelings for Damon (Ian Somerhalder) have been building over the past three seasons on The Vampire Diaries. Even if you prefer her with Stefan (Paul Wesley), you have to admit she’s gone from being intrigued by Damon to having a genuine connection with him. 

The dam which was walling up those emotions seemed to shudder when Elena became a vampire and finally broke during her crazy hallucinations in Season 4, Episode 6, “We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes.” If you can’t wait to see where the realization will take Elena, check out these Delena spoilers for Season 4, Episode 7, “My Brother’s Keeper.”

That title says it all, right? Stefan knows his bro is more than a little stoked that Elena’s single.

But Damon and Elena don’t act on their feelings immediately. Someone else escorts her to the Miss Mystic Falls pageant.

But something happens to get them on the dance floor together.

Caroline (Candice Accola) isn’t pleased with what she sees between the pair.

Despite Caroline’s disapproval, Damon and Elena may potentially end up having sex.

If they do actually hook up (and we’re not positive that spoiler is about them), it will end in tragedy.

Sorry! Look at this picture. It will bring back the warm and fuzzies.
