As if Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) doesn’t have enough male vampire affection to fiddle with in this Thursday’s Season 3 finale of The Vampire Diaries, there may just be another initiate into the We Heart Elena Fan Club on the way.

According to E! Online, the return of arguably the most polite Original, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), may just have something to do with his affinity for Mystic Falls’ apparently most-desirable human gal, Elena.

While Daniel couldn’t comment on whether Elijah will face-off with the now-wicked Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis) the new vampire poses a serious threat to him and his siblings he did say, “at this stage, if you were Elijah, wouldn’t you just want to get the hell out of a place causing so many problems? Elijah really has a thing for Elena if he’s sticking around.”

This is not the first we’ve heard Gillies speak of Elijah’s possible romantic interest in her. Back in late April, Gillies said,  “What [Elijah] marvels in Elena is that she is this creature, and even though she only has one lifetime and he has lived through hundreds of them, she seems to be living it more nobly than the rest of the creatures that he knows who have had ample time to perfect what it is to be a decent creature.”

Team Elijena, anyone?
