Despite Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) best efforts, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) were closer than ever in Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 21, “Before Sunset.” In fact, they were so buddy-buddy that they decided to accept defeat and leave town if Elena (Nina Dobrev) chose the other brother.
Bizarre love triangle for sure, but it would be pretty painful to watch the girl you love mack on your brother every single day. Of course, Damon endured that for a couple seasons, so it’s not like it’s impossible.
Maybe Elena will choose neither Salvatore and the pact will be moot, but something tells us a reason will arise that will force both brothers to stay in Mystic Falls. We hope so, anyway.
