Prepare yourselves, Delena fans. It sounds like things are going to get worse before they get better for Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) on The Vampire Diaries. 

Ian Somerhalder tells InStyle that he feels for his character and the woman he can’t have. “It’s such a star-crossed lovers game at this point,” says Ian.

Romantic as that may be, everything from the cure to Damon’s brother,Stefan (Paul Wesley), will continue to get in the way of them being together. There are more trials ahead, Ian says, adding that “This is going to go on for quite some time.”

What else is new?
