While Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) away, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) will play — with Elena (Nina Dobrev), that is. Or, so that seems to be Paul’s theory in a recent interview with Bullet!

The Vampire Diaries hunk opened up about how he feels Stefan will change this season, and, needless to say, it’s not all bloodlust and hot supernatural sex.

“I think as Elena and Damon start to move towards one another, I think Stefan will lose his marbles a little bit,” Paul said. “It’s kind of an interesting thing to see if Stefan continues to give a s**t about finding this cure [for Elena] or if he’s just like, ‘You’re totally hooking up with my brother. I don’t care.’ We’ll see. I don’t know what he’s going to do. I like when he’s not predictable.”

But the truth is that no one knows the inner workings of Stefan’s mind better than the actor who’s lived the role for the past four seasons. So, what does Paul think about a Stelena reunion?

“Maybe there’s a way to salvage the relationship and go back to normal,” he said, “but I hope they never go back to the way they were. People change, and I know they’re the romantic love story in the entire series, but I do believe potentially that they can find a different kind of romance that isn’t as naive as it was before. I feel in Season 1, they were really naive lovers who weren’t aware of impending doom of any relationship. Sounds pretty negative, I know.”

A wiser more mature Stelena... We could be down for that! (As long as the shirts still come off in Wisdomville, of course.)
